Dustin Ash won tonight's crash-filled 40-lap NASCAR Super Late Model feature at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Ash's first victory of the 2010 Whelen All-American Series was no walk in the park as the main event was riddled with mishaps.

The first stoppage came on the opening lap when Fabian Bray, Cheyanne Schindler and Jeff Bargerhuff crash on the front straightaway. Following a complete restart, David Anderson led the field until lap 4 when Scott Gafforini motored past. Ash moved into second place on lap 23 and set his sights on Gafforini.

Ash drove under Gafforini in Turn 1 on lap 28 to take the lead, only to see the caution flag fly again for a multiple-car spin in Turn 4. On the restart, Glen Burke and opening-night winner Robert Ewing crashed in Turn 4. On the next restart, Burke - an innocent victim for the third time in one race - crashed in Turn 2 with Bear Rzesnowiecky, Steve Anderson, Casey Kingsland and NickHalen. At this point, one-half of the 20-car starting field was eliminated. Ash held off Gafforini and 2009 champion Jeff Connors for the victory.

Austin Farley won the 30-lap USAC Midget feature over Bobby Runyan and Eli Schrock. Eight-lap USAC Midget qualifying heats were won by Sean Buckley and Jessica Clark.

Mario Opipari passed race leader and opening-night winner Vinny Raucci on lap 22 of the 25-lap NASCAR Charger feature and went on to record his first win of the 2010 campaign. Raucci made one final attempt to retake the lead in Turn 4 with the checkered flag in sight, but Opipari held him off. James Wingard finished third.

Chris "Spanky" Bosley collected his first Thunder Roadster checkered flag, edging opening-night winner Bob Dresser and Hohman for the victory.

The long tow from Kalispell, Mont., paid off for Wrango West as he won the 17-lap, 32-car Legend Cars feature. The race was shortened to 17 laps due to the time limit. Robert D'Ambra was scored in second place and Justin Irwin was third. Australia's Bronson Butcher braved a tough night and finished 27th.

Christian Glass won the Bandolero Bandit feature over Chris Trickle and Vincent Raucci Jr. The 12-lap Bandolero Young Guns feature was won by Jacob Tilton ahead of Christian Warren and Michael Morris. 

Cameron Hayley won the Baby Grand National feature, which was shortened from 30 to 23 laps due to the imposed time limit.

Dylan Cruz won the Legend Cars Developmental feature ahead of Nikky Saxon and Andrew Muscanell.

Raven Thomas sang the national anthem and Boy Scout Troop 50 and Pack 184 presented the colors.

Next race: Sunday, April 11 - Spring Shootout Sunday featuring Baby Grand Nationals and Legend Cars National Qualifier. Racing starts at noon.
