Young Jace Meier of Las Vegas scored his first Bullring victory by outdistancing Chris Carmody and perennial favorite Doug Hamm in the 30-lap Late Model feature at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  Justin Johnson earned his fourth Super Late Model victory of the 2007 NASCAR Whelen All American Series and Texan Chris Buescher collected his fourth Legends Cars trophy by taking the lead on the final lap.  Brian Matzke won the Charger feature and Charlie Wahl claimed the Thunder Roadster finale.  Dylan Kwasniewski won the Bandolero Bandits feature.  Bandolero Young Guns feature winner Damon Blakeman was disqualified after his car failed to pass post-race technical inspection and Kyle Spade was declared the victor. Results are unofficial until Monday morning.  Western Racing Association (vintage cars) features were won by Jet Davison of Running Springs, Calif. (Midgets) and Glen Necessary of Canyon Country, Calif. (Sprint Cars).

SUPER LATE MODELS: The $200-to-win Budweiser Fast Dash was won by Justin Johnson.  Super Late Model heats were won by Steve Anderson and Travis Swalwell.

Johnson started the 40-lap marathon from the pole position, flanked by two-time winner Tom Lovelady.  Lovelady spun and crashed on the front chute on the opening green flag, necessitating a complete restart.  Johnson took the lead, only to see the caution flag fly again on the first lap when eight cars - including heat winners Steve Anderson and Travis Swalwell - were involved in spins and crashes in Turn 1.  The race recorded its third lap when the caution flag was thrown again, this time for a spin by Jeff Connors in Turn 2.  Johnson held the lead through the restarts, followed by Rich Attisani and Mike Ray.  Johnson sailed off to a full-straightaway lead by lap 25 and went on to record his fourth Bullring Super Late Model victory of the 2007 campaign.

LATE MODELS: Eighteen-year-old Jace Meier of Las Vegas drove a smart race and won the 30-lap Late Model feature.  Meier, an honor student at Spring Valley Montessori School, started the evening by winning his qualifying heat.  In a daring three-wide move down the back straightaway, Meier took the lead from polesitter Glen Burke on the first lap.  The win was not easy as Doug Hamm - undefeated in the Late Model class in 2007 - grabbed the lead with an inside pass in the first turn on lap 11.  Meier battled back and regained the lead on lap 21.  Chris Carmody took second place from Hamm on lap 23 and Meier was first under the checkered flag seven laps later.

"I'm speechless - this is absolutely amazing," said Meier.  "Everybody who made this possible - I can't thank you guys enough.  I've been racing here for four years and this is my first (Bullring) win. I've won at other tracks but it feels good to get the monkey off my back."
