Jason Whiteneack, 33, of Boulder City, passed away Saturday as a result of injuries sustained in a highway accident.  Jason was a regular competitor at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and finished third in the 2007 Jerry's Nugget Championship Drag Racing Series in the Motorcycle class. He was a huge supporter of our track and most recently competed for Team Las Vegas as part of the NHRA E.T. Finals.  Jason was a representative of The Strip at LVMS in the Race of Champions and also won the Motorcycle class at the Sport Compact Nationals to claim an NHRA Championship Wally trophy.

An informal get-together/memorial for Jason was held on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the grandstands at The Strip.  Please join us in keeping him and his family in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
