SUPER LATE MODELS: Taylor Barton of Las Vegas won tonight's 40-lap Super Late Model feature at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  Barton, winless since June 16, started the night in fine style by winning the $200 Budweiser Fast Dash.

Defending Bullring Super Late Model champion Scott Gafforini started the 40-lap finale from the pole position and opened up a sizeable lead over his competition during the first 10 laps.  Barton began closing in on Gafforini by lap 14 and made the pass for the lead - and the win - on lap 16.

Once in the lead, the action now was unfolding behind Barton.  Jimmy Parker Jr.'s car suffered mechanical failure on lap 24, robbing him of second place.  In the final turn, on the final lap, with the checkered flag in sight, Tom Lovelady and Scott Gafforini tangled and spun, effectively removing them from third and fourth place, respectively.  Justin Johnson finished second behind race winner Barton.  Jeff Connors was third. 

Steve Anderson (finished third) and Dave Quartero (finished fifth) were disqualified after their cars failed to pass post-race inspection.

LATE MODELS: Morris Sealy of Las Vegas drove his Hobbytown USA entry straight to victory lane after completing the 25-lap Late Model feature. Chris Bray finished second and Joe Deguevera finished third.  Late Model qualifying heats were won by Bray and John Spilotro.

CHARGERS: Phil Goodwin of Henderson won the 25-lap Charger feature, followed by neighbors Darren Rollins and Mario Opipari.  Mike Heck of Utah finished fourth and Brian Matzke was fifth at the checkered flag. Charger heats were won by Opipari and Goodwin.

IMCA MODIFIEDS: Wayne Morris Jr. won the 25-lap IMCA Modified feature, followed by Tadd Burns and Scott Osborn. IMCA Modified heats were won by Burns and Rick Taylor.

LEGENDS CARS: Jeremiah Wagner won the 20-lap, 28-car Legends Cars feature. Bear Rzesnowiecky finished second in the feature and also won the Budweiser Legends Cars Dash.

THUNDER ROADSTERS: Charlie Wahl won the Thunder Roadster feature as well as the qualifying heat.  Ed Hohman was second and Johan Timmer finished third.

BOMBERS: Larry "The Torch" Dittman won the Bomber feature.  Matt Cunningham won the Bomber qualifying heat.

BANDOLEROS: Jonathan Eakin won the Bandolero Bandits feature.  Brianna Holley won the 12-lap Bandolero Young Guns feature. Bandolero heats were won by Jonathan Eakin (Bandit) and Brianna Holley (Young Guns).
