Las Vegas, NV -- 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, SPEARS Modified Series, Late Model Truck Series and Jr. Late Models all will run features as part of the race schedule. Gates open earlier than normal, 2 p.m. Pacific Time, and racing will kick off at 4 p.m.
Action at the 3/8-mile paved oval begins with the first of two 35-lap Jr. Late Models feature segments and continues with a 75-lap SPEARS Modified race. The Jr. Late Models will then finish their night with another 35-lap feature segment that will decide the race winner, and the Late Model Truck Series follows with a 35-lap feature to determine its season champion.
The SPEARS Southwest Tour Series provides the evening’s night cap with a 150-lap feature that pays $10,000 to the winner. Jeremy Doss of Upper Lake, Calif., is the defending champion for the SPEARS Southwest Tour event, while four-time Bullring track champ Justin Johnson won the SPEARS Modifieds race last year.
The West Coast Short Track Championships serve as a fitting exclamation point to an immensely successful Bullring season and will be broadcast live on Lucas Oil Racing TV and shown tape-delayed on MAVTV Motorsports Network at a date still to be determined.
One of the most affordable entertainment options in Las Vegas, the Bullring offers family friendly concession prices that include $2 hot dogs and Coca-Cola products and $3 Budweiser beer. Spectators can also save money by purchasing admission tickets in advance by visiting or calling the LVMS ticket office at 800.644.4444 or online at LVMS.com, and all children 12 and under will be admitted free with a ticketed adult.
