Three drivers who compete on a regular basis at the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway have advanced into the second of four rounds in the 2004 Red Bull Driver Search. Super Late Model driver Spencer Clark, Pro Legends Cars driver Tom Lovelady and Sudden Impact Auto Body IMCA Modified driver Aaron McMorran will compete at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif. in hopes to move on to round three. In its third year, the Red Bull Driver Search is a program designed to find the ¿next American Formula 1 Champion¿. The local Open Qualifying or round one of the search took place at Fast Lap Indoor Karting Center earlier this year. The Western Run Offs (round two) are a three-day testing period in which 112 competitors are evaluated on their speed, progress, willingness to learn, composure, behavior and fitness level. The competition begins August 24. Approximately six drivers will be chosen from Infineon to compete in the semi-finals in Sebring, Fla. August 31 along with drivers from the East Coast Run Offs. The finals will see approximately 10 competitors and will be at a former Formula One circuit in Europe in October. Clark is the 2003 Super Late Model Rookie-of-the-Year and is currently in sixth place in the point standings. The 17-year-old has eight top-five finishes and nine top-10 finishes in 14 starts. Last weekend Clark set a new track record of 17.050 seconds in the Legends Cars division. ¿The search started at Fast Lap and we had a lot of practice there (Lovelady and I) and we got pretty quick and thought we could win,¿ said Clark. ¿I hope to be one of the top 10 drivers to go to the next stage. The competition will be really tough; a lot of the participants are go-kart competitors.¿ Lovelady is the 2003 Semi-Pro Legends Cars Rookie-of-the-Year and is currently in fourth place in the point standings. The 15-year-old has one win, 14 top-five finishes and 15 top-10 finishes in 15 starts. ¿We (Spencer and I) usually just go to Fast Lap and race. They started the search there and we just decided to try it. We finished one and two,¿ said Lovelady. ¿I think we¿ll do pretty good. We have practiced a couple of times with the go-karts there. They (karts) are being restricted, a lot like Fast Lap. The carts will be all set up the same and be on a level playing ground.¿ McMorran is a rookie at the Bullring and in the Sudden Impact Auto Body IMCA Modified division. The 16-year-old has one top-five finish and six top-10 finishes in 10 starts. He has competed in go-karts and was the champion in his rookie year. ¿I thought this was a good opportunity to be seen in the racing world,¿ said McMorran. ¿I hope to advance into the next round in Florida. There is probably going to be some good drivers, but we have good drivers in Vegas and we¿ll do pretty good.¿ The current Red Bull Junior Team consists of four competitors one of whom is from Las Vegas, Matt Jaskol.
