Checkered Countdown: Top-Five Las Vegas Finishes

No.3 Matt Kenseth wins on the day of his 41st birthday (2013).

During the 2013 Kobalt Tools 400 Matt Kenseth gave himself quite a nice birthday present. He found himself leading in the final laps thanks to the risky decision of not changing tires during the pit stop but had to fight off a hard-charging Kasey Kahne at the white flag. He had a car fast enough to do it and won his first race of the season on the day of his 41st birthday. By doing so he became only the third driver in the NASCAR Sprint Cup history to win on their birthday after Cale Yarborough and Kyle Busch.
