The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will put the finishing touches on another exciting season when it hosts the West Coast Short Track Championships on Saturday night.
The SPEARS Southwest Tour Series, Lucas Oil Modified Series and USAC HPD Midgets Series all will run as part of the race schedule, which also will include a Jr. Late Models feature. Gates open earlier than normal, 2 p.m. Pacific Time, and racing will kick off at 4 p.m.
Entries numbered more than 300, and Jason Hughes backed up his opening night qualifying feature victory by winning Saturday's IMCA Modified Duel in the Desert main event and taking home a $7,777.77 check.
More than 20 states were represented at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Dirt Track, and drivers from 13 of them qualified for the Modified main event, while a record 97 Northern SportMods took the green.
The 21st annual IMCA Duel in the Desert continued Friday evening at the Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and by night's end, Ricky Thornton Jr. and Jeremy Frenier visited victory lane with qualifying feature wins in the IMCA Modifieds, while Jake Sachau claimed the IMCA SportMod qualifying feature.
The 21st annual IMCA Duel in the Desert kicked off Thursday evening at the Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. With the largest number of pre-entries in five years, the IMCA Modifieds boasted a field of 206 drivers, while the IMCA SportMods came in at a record 97 entries.
The NHRA Nevada Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway has been moved one week later for 2019, the NHRA announced on Tuesday.
The four-day event, originally scheduled for Oct. 24-27, will now take place Oct. 31-Nov. 3 and will lead into the season-ending Auto Club NHRA Finals, Nov. 14-17, in Pomona, Calif. The date change also accommodates the dates of the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, which is slated for Nov. 5-8, and allows the racing community to attend both events.
