Sasser, Williams, Talkington claim Hot Truckin' Spectacular honors at The Strip



            The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway presented the second annual Big Rig & Hot Truckin' Spectacular Saturday night.  When the diesel fumes and tire smoke subsided, the all-truck drag and show honored final-round winners Jim Sasser of Las Vegas (Tough Truck), Scott Williams (Big Rig) and Wayne Talkington (Unlimited).

            Sasser, the night's only local winner, defeated Bub Black of Huntington Beach, Calif., 17.466 sec./71.22 mph to 13.449 sec./86.16 mph.  Carl Cannavo of North Las Vegas earned the class' No. 1 Qualifier status.

            In Big Rig competition, Scott Williams of Wild Rose, Wis., defeated Fred Coleman of Eugene, Ore., 20.478 sec./72.30 mph to 27.278 sec./58.75 mph.

            Talkington, of Fontana, Calif., drove his Lucas Oil-sponsored Truckin' for Kids entry to victory in the Unlimited class.
