Hays Yergensen of Elsinore, Utah, won the Pro class finale at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Saturday night.  Yergensen's first win of the 2007 Jerry's Nugget Championship Drag Racing Series season is even more noteworthy since he is confined to a wheelchair and uses hand controls to drive his black Mustang.

Roger Kato of N. Las Vegas defeated John Dowd for Super Pro honors.

Father John Irving won the Sportsman category while son Jon Irving did likewise in the High School class.  Both father and son are from Boulder City.

Russell Odegaard of N. Las Vegas won the Motorcycle final over Dave Phillips of Las Vegas.  Gary Combs of Torrance, Calif., won the Corvette Challenge and Rich Walsh of Las Vegas won the "duck race" (consolation event for those eliminated in the first or second rounds of competition).
