Saturday's Sam's Town 300 will be Andretti's first start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the Busch Series, but he has seven Nextel Cup starts on the Nevada 1.5-mile oval already under his belt.

ANDRETTI ON THE SAM'S TOWN 300 AND LAS VEGAS

"The test was good for me. It was our first run in vain to work on things on a non-restrictor plate track. It was a really good test and we learned a lot. We're taking the same car we tested back this weekend and we tweaked some things to make it even better. I'm really looking forward to this race. In Vegas, you play against your luck; this trip we're hoping to make our own luck!"
