Scott Gafforini and Chris Clyne scored 30-lap NASCAR Super Late Model victories tonight at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The annual Father’s Day Weekend race night is sponsored by Star Nursery and named for the late Bullring driver Chris Trickle, son of local racing legend Chuck Trickle. The Trickle family awarded an additional donated $100 to each feature winner tonight.

Rob Kiemele led the first nine laps of the first 30-lap NASCAR Super Late Model feature until Scott Gafforini took command. Gafforini built up a comfortable lead on the rest of the field but Dee Gable’s spin in Turn 2 on lap 20 erased his advantage. Gafforini held his lead on the restart and went on to win, followed by Chris Clyne, Dennis Rock Jr., Dustin Ash and David Anderson.

Chris Clyne started the second NASCAR Super Late Model feature from the pole position, survived two restarts for spinning cars and held off a determined Scott Gafforini for his first win of the 2012 season. The race was in question right down to the checkered flag as a lapped car was directly in front of the lead duo as they raced to the finish line. The win marked Clyne’s fifth Chris Trickle Father’s Day Special win over his career. Dennis Rock Jr. finished third. Glenn Burke and David Anderson completed the top five.

James Wingard won his first 25-lap NASCAR Super Stock feature of the year. Steve Smith of San Bernardino, Calif. finished a close second and Vinny Raucci was third. Eight-lap Super Stock heats were won by Raucci and Kayli Barker.

Perhaps the 25-lap NASCAR Bomber feature was the wildest race of the night. Pete Meyer had a comfortable lead at the checkered flag but that says nothing about the crazy action in his wake. Dallas Simonette finished second by a nose over Jason Kiser. Nathan Boss and Josh Morgan completed the top five. Eight-lap Bomber qualifying heats were won by Boss and Kiser.

Tye Mihocko won the 20-lap American Band Semi-Pro/Young Lion feature ahead of Joshua Jackson and Zane Smith. Brent Scheidemantle won the 25-lap American Band Legend Cars Pro/Master feature. Dustin Ash was second and Jason Irwin was third.

Nick D’Egidio scored his second Thunder Car feature win of the 2012 season. The Frank Sinatra impersonator and member of Las Vegas’ Dry Martini Orchestra took the lead on lap 10 of the 20-lap feature and was followed across the finish line by Dave Quartaro and Brian Reed. Jacob Tilton was fourth and Josh Quartaro finished fifth.

Noah Gragson won the 12-lap Silver Star Plumbing Bandolero Outlaw feature. Austin Toddy finished second and Cami Burke was third. Phillip Root won 12 the 12-lap Silver Star Plumbing Bandolero Bandit feature. Caden Carlin finished second and Chris Trickle was third.
