Saturday's Chris Trickle Classic provided great racing and ample opportunities for drivers at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to make moves in the points standings.
Five drivers gained ground atop their divisional rankings by adding to their leads, while a trio of points leaders saw their advantages shrink after the dust had settled. Vinny Raucci Jr. (NASCAR Bombers) broke a tie with Kyle Jacks at the top of that division with his fourth consecutive race victory, and Kyle Keller (Jr. Late Models), Amilleo Thomson (USLCI Bandolero Outlaws) and Landon Gresser (USLCI Bandolero Bandits) also used feature wins to add to their leads.
Kayli Barker continues to make history at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The victory - which came at the Chris Trickle Classic - was the 16th of Barker's career at The Bullring and broke a five-year winless draught for the popular 20-year-old college student.
