Richard Griffin of Silver City, New Mexico, won the 30-lap SCRA Sprint Car feature at the half-mile dirt track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Saturday, June 29. Griffin took the lead from Jeremy Sherman of Phoenix on lap 20 and went on to score the inaugural Summer Dirt Cup. Race winner Griffin also was the fastest qualifier of the night, with a lap of 18.585 sec.

Damion Gardner took the lead from the outside pole position on the opening lap and built a substantial advantage on the rest of the field until the first of two red flags halted the race on lap 11. As track crews cleared the damaged race cars of Mike Kirby (flipped-photo left) and Rickie Gaunt (rolled over) in Turn 3, Gardner elected to relinquish the lead to pit for a fresh right rear tire. He restarted the race at the rear of the field and eventually worked his way back up to fourth place.

The second red flag of the night was thrown when Mike Spencer rolled and hit the wall in Turn 1. No drivers were injured in the rollovers.

Jeremy Sherman finished second and Cory Kruseman was third. SCRA Sprint Car heats were won by Gary Howard, Rickie Gaunt, Troy Rutherford and Bobby Cody. Danny Sheridan claimed the six-lap SCRA Dash and Tony Jones won the 12-lap B-Main.

Mark Allison won the 15-lap IMCA Modified feature. Following Allison under starter John Higley's checkered flag were Jason Pike and Dan Fitzgerald. The 12-lap IMCA Modified B-Main was won by John Wilson.

Wyatt Ehrp drove his Dale Earnhardt look-alike Camaro to victory in both the six-lap Thunderstock ash and 10-lap feature.
