LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The winner of the Pennzoil 400 is Joey Logano, who drove his Team Penske Ford to his 22nd career victory and his first of the season on March 3.

Las Vegas native, Kyle Busch, finished third and hardly came up empty handed.

Busch took home the win March 2 in the Boyd Gaming 300.

The races were a big win for the valley, too.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority estimates more than 150,000 spectators were here for the races, likely generating over $200M dollars.

The Thunderbirds welcomed those guests at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway with a flyover that kicked off the Pennzoil 400.
