The 2019 OBRL Metro Ford Cup Series Pennzoil 400 race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway started with Joel Kilburn capturing the pole and recording the fastest lap of the race. Charles Idell gained 26 spots to win the Hard Charger Award. The race produced many close battles for position through the field with many position changes. Peter Norquay led 40 laps, with Dwayne McArthur going on to take the win. This week the drivers showed good race-craft, which resulted in 3 cautions with 8 lead changes and there were no disqualifications with 5 disconnects in a 34 car field ending with Dwayne McArthur capturing his 1st win of the season with Peter Norquay finishing 2nd, Randy McCanney 3rd and Vernon Margheim capturing 4th.
This week the OBRL Metro Ford Cup Series moves to the Ticket Guardian 500 (k) race at ISM Raceway with the current playoff leader Vernon Margheim looking for ways to maintain his lead in the Series. The question is … can he hold off the charging Old Bastards?
