LAS VEGAS - Matt Kenseth won on his 41st birthday for his new Joe Gibbs Racing team, barely holding off Kasey Kahne for his third victory at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday. Kenseth earned his 25th career victory in just his third start in the JGR Toyota after leaving Roush Fenway Racing in the offseason. He took the lead away from Kahne out of a late restart and fended off Kahne's Chevrolet over the final laps, adding another trophy to his Las Vegas victories in 2003 and 2004.

LAS VEGAS - Kenneth Cherry Jr. was an aspiring rapper who moved from the Bay Area to Las Vegas to pursue his career. His music videos online show him cruising the Strip in his Maserati. Michael Boldon was a family man and taxi driver who hailed from Michigan and loved fast cars. The two men's lives - along with that of an unidentified passenger in Boldon's cab - ended in gunfire, a fiery crash, and an explosion before dawn Thursday on the neon-lit Strip. As investigators Friday tried to find the gunman in a black Range Rover SUV who triggered the chain of events, families and friends tried to grasp the finality of it all. "Right now my heart is breaking," said Cherry's great aunt, Patricia Sims, of Oakland, Calif.

LAS VEGAS - Bullets were flying from a black Range Rover at a gray Maserati as the vehicles raced toward a red light on the Las Vegas Strip. Beneath the neon lights, police say, the Maserati ran a red light at one of the Strip's busiest intersections and smashed into a taxi that exploded into flames early Thursday, killing the two people inside. Three more cars and a utility truck collided at the crossroads home to Bellagio, Caesars Palace, and Bally's, leaving at least six more people injured as the Range Rover sped off in the predawn darkness.

CAN WE BE frank? Numerous media organizations taking the pulse of the giant CES consumer electronics show put out "Best of CES" lists.
