The third race of the 2010 season, the "Shelby American", will be the 13th Sprint Cup race run at the mile-and-a-half Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Even at this early stage of the year, there are a number of drivers who will be hoping for lucky No. 13 this Sunday afternoon, looking to kickstart their respective seasons after stumbling out of the blocks.
The addition of progressive banking after the 2006 race has exponentially improved the side-by-side racing at the D-shaped oval, so expect to see plenty of exciting action in the desert this weekend. Now home to the end of season banquet, Las Vegas is a track that one day will probably have a second race date. So expect the show in Sin City to be a good one, as the contenders and pretenders slowly start to separate themselves on your fantasy roster.
