The NASCAR Winston West Series championship will be determined at The Orleans 150 at the 1.5-mile superspeedway at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Saturday night.

Point leader Eric Norris will go head-to-head with Austin Cameron for the championship. Both drivers are looking for their first Winston West championship. Norris can clinch the title by finishing sixth or better.

¿We¿ve been trying to win the Winston West championship since 1998,¿ said Norris. ¿It¿s been our number one priority since we hooked up with Jani-King.

¿It would be a real milestone in my career and a true testament of just how far along this team has come. This team has endured a lot of tough times and terrible luck the past few years. They deserve it.¿

¿I¿ve been second, third and fourth in the Winston West championship and have never won,¿ said Cameron. ¿This is the best opportunity I¿ve had, with Bill (McAnally) and Michael Gaughan helping out.¿

With a 36-point lead, Norris has two wins this season, while Cameron has five.

¿Our lead is too small for us to be conservative, especially with the No. 16 chasing us,¿ Norris said. ¿We know they (No. 16) are going to be really good at Las Vegas so our plan is to go out, run up front and be there at the finish with a shot at the win.¿

¿Norris has had strong runs all year,¿ said Cameron. ¿This season is pretty short, only 10 races, so making sure you have good finishes is key and we have had a couple slip ups.

¿The whole NAPA Auto Parts team and Bill McAnally have been awesome. We have a chance to win the race; it¿s not too far out of reach. I¿m going to give it my all,¿ concluded Cameron.

Cameron won the Winston West event earlier this year at the Bullring at LVMS and finished second to Brendan Gaughan last year at the superspeedway, while Norris finished 10th at the Bullring and eighth last year on the 1.5-mile oval.

The Orleans 150 is set for Oct. 12 at 7:30 p.m. and the Las Vegas 350 NASCAR Craftsman Truck race Oct. 13 at 2 p.m.
