The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway has signed up as a participant in the Contingency Connection program for the Jerry's Nugget Championship Drag Racing Series.


The program will begin on April 12, and will run through the 2003 season. The overall champion in the Super Pro class will receive the Mr. Gasket Championship track awards. Awards will be distributed to event winners in Super Pro, Pro, Sportsman and Motorcycle. In addition, The Strip will host three events where awards will be distributed to Street Sport Compact racers.


Decals will be distributed at the tech trailer at each of these events.  Racers also can contact local speed shops and the parts manufacturers to obtain decals in advance of the first event.
