Kyle Larson took home the checkered flag Sunday afternoon at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, scoring his first victory of 2024 and 24th in his NASCAR Cup Series career.

While leading a whopping 181 laps and sweeping the first two stages, Larson had to defend the race win in the closing laps from a charging Tyler Reddick, whom Larson fended off by 0.441 seconds.

Ryan Blaney, Ross Chastain and Ty Gibbs rounded out the top five. Both Chastain and Gibbs rebounded from pit-road adversity as Chastain suffered a speeding penalty in Stage 2 while Gibbs had a poor pit stop late in the same stage.

Noah Gragson, Martin Truex Jr., Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano and William Byron completed the top 10.

The Cup Series will continue its westward swing with a visit to Phoenix Raceway on March 10 (3:30 p.m. ET, FOX, MRN Radio, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
