NASCAR Kobalt Tools 400: Gentlemen, Ladies, Bald-Headed Babies, and What Not, Let's Go Racing!

The engines have fired at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and the green flag is less than ten minutes away! Matt Kenseth, Marcos Ambrose, and the rest of the 43 car field is at the ready to start the Kobalt Tools 400, the 14th NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Las Vegas.

The first two races of 2011 have been thrillers that came right down to the wire, and the 1.5-mile oval that sits in the shadow of Sin City promises more of the same.

Can Matt Kenseth break a 72-race winless streak? Can Jimmie Johnson win his fifth at Las Vegas? Can Jeff Gordon make it two-in-a-row? Can Tony Stewart score his first win of any kind at Las Vegas in his 20th start? Can Marcos Ambrose, A.J Allmendinger, or David Ragan break through for their first career victories?

Tune in to FOX to find out and follow along with all the action right here on SB Nation Atlanta!
