It was all NASCAR all the time this week and weekend in Las Vegas and at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and contributing photographer Tom Donoghue was hard at work documenting the Hauler Parade on the Strip, NASCAR testing at LVMS, Sam Hornish Jr.’s victory in the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series Sam’s Town 300 on Saturday and Matt Kenseth’s win this afternoon in the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Kobalt Tools 400.

Kenseth’s victory was his third in Las Vegas and the 25th in his career. Go to LasVegasSun.com for a report on Hornish’s Sam’s Town win, and check back Monday for a recap by Robin Leach of Kenseth’s victory at LVMS on Sunday; he was onsite serving as an emcee at the sold-out Kobalt Tools 400.
