LAS VEGAS – With 160 laps in the books at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, once again three Hendrick Motorsports drivers are inside the top 10.
For the second consecutive stage, Chase Elliott, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson earned bonus race points for taking the green checkered flag within the top 10.
Elliott remained in the top five in fourth place, and this time it was Earnhardt in seventh and Johnson in 10th, flip-flopping their positions from the end of Stage 1.
That gave Elliott seven points, Earnhardt four and Johnson one.
Kasey Kahne continued his push back toward the top 10, finishing Stage 2 in 15th.
Sunday’s race will conclude with a final, 107-lap stage.
