The West Coast Short Track Championships will put the finishing touches on a long and successful season at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Saturday.
The popular event will close the short track's 2015 competition schedule with a bang, as four major racing series will see action during the evening. The SRL Spears Southwest Tour Series, Lucas Oil Modifieds, SRL S2 Late Models and USAC HPD Midget Series will all run as part of the race schedule, with a pair of lengthy features anchoring the night's festivities.
After a 35-lap SRL S2 Tour Series feature and a 30-lap USAC HPD Midget Series race, the SRL Spears Southwest Tour Series' 125-lap feature leads into a 75-lap Lucas Oil Modifieds race at the 3/8-mile paved oval. Spectator gates open at 2 p.m. Pacific Time, and fans will be able to watch group qualifying, single-car qualifying, a pair of USAC HPD Midget Series heat races and a 40-lap Lucas Oil Modifieds B-Feature before opening ceremonies at 5 p.m.
The West Coast Short Track Championships serve as a fitting exclamation point to an immensely successful 2015 season for the short track that began in late March. All totaled, the track hosted 15 major event nights during the year and will be looking to build on the momentum of an action-packed season.
The annual Bullring Banquet will take place on Saturday, Dec. 5, at Sam's Town Hotel and Casino, and the track's 11 season champions will be honored as part of the special night. Tickets are available by calling LVMS at 800-644-4444.
One of the most affordable entertainment options in Las Vegas, the Bullring's annual series will feature family friendly concession prices that include $2 hot dogs and Coca-Cola products and $3 Budweiser beer.
