For the fifth consecutive year, the NASCAR Xfinity Series will make two stops at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2022, while the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series again will kick off a tripleheader of racing action in March.
The Xfinity Series will precede the NASCAR Cup Series races on March 5 with the Alsco Uniforms 300 and Oct. 15 with the Alsco Uniforms 302 in 2022. The lone stop in Las Vegas for the trucks will be Friday, March 4. The speedway announced earlier that the fall event weekend will move three weeks later from its late September date to a mid-October date.

Before the Alsco Uniforms 302 got underway on Saturday, Josh Berry told Dale Earnhardt Jr. that he couldn’t wait to go racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Berry passed teammate Justin Allgaier with 16 laps to go and sped to his second career NASCAR Xfinity Series victory in his 27th start.
