            Doug Schneider (Super Pro), Leo Shaver (Motorcycle), David Troffer (Pro) and Billy Farnum (Sportsman) earned final-round victories Saturday night in the fifth meet of the 10-race Jerry’s Nugget Championship Drag Racing Series for local bracket racers at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Troffer, of Kingman, Ariz., was the night’s only racer who did not reside in Las Vegas.  The Las Vegas Corvette Club finale was won by Bob McVane.

            Jerry’s Nugget Reaction-Time Bonus Awards were earned by Bill Culver (Pro), Mike Giordano (Super Pro), Dave Phillips (Motorcycle) and Kyle Hirschi (Sportsman). The Sport Compact category was not contested due to lack of entries.  The award is earned by posting the best reaction time on a winning run during the first round of eliminations.

            Adam Burnham (Super Quick), Kim Lee (Open Comp), John Irving (Pure Stock) and Kayla Sewell (High School) were winners during The Strip’s Show 'n’ Go Friday series.
