HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (March 6, 2015) – Alex Bowman and the No. 7 Nikko RC/Toy State Chevrolet are placing all bets on the black (and blue) team this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Lucky 7: The number 7 is associated with good luck and being that NASCAR is racing in Las Vegas, odds are in the favor of the No. 7 team.

Bowman says: “Las Vegas Motor Speedway is a fun track to race at, it has multiple grooves and is extremely fast. The track is extremely bumpy, but it has a lot of grip so you can carry a lot of speed through the corners. After a top-25 finish at Atlanta, I’m ready to get to Vegas and get back to work with the No.7 Nikko RC/Toy State team.”

Tune in: The Kobalt Tools 400 airs on your local FOX affiliate at 3:30 pm ET. Green flag is scheduled for 3:46 pm ET.
