Senator's Cup Fall Classic Comes To The Bullring At LVMS On 10/22


Visiting regional series racers, an appearance by a United States senator and a $15,000 first-place prize will be just some of the highlights of the Senator’s Cup Fall Classic at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend.

U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-Nev.), himself a former Bullring racer, will be on-hand for Saturday night’s racing action that will include a $15,000 check to the winner of the 150-lap Super Late Models feature. Sen. Heller, the former Nevada Secretary of State (1995-2007) and representative for Nevada’s Second Congressional District (2007-11), raced at The Bullring in the early 2000s.

Sen. Heller, who got into racing through his father, Jack, who raced Super Stocks, will present the champion’s check in the Winner’s Circle for the 150-lap Super Late Models feature. Defending champion Linny White of Fontana, Calif., will be among the Super Late Models drivers competing, along with local stars Noah Gragson, Dustin Ash, Kayli Barker, Jay Beasley and Chris Trickle.

 The 150-lap NASCAR Super Late Models 150 and the Late Models 100 highlight a full slate of features spread out over the course of the weekend at the 3/8-mile paved oval. Defending champion Trevor Huddleston of Agoura Hills, Calif., will be back to go for another trip to the Winner’s Circle.

Friday night kicks off the festivities with qualifying for the 24-car Super Late Models 150 and Late Models 100 features, along with various heat races and features for the USAC HPD Midgets, South West Tour Truck Series/Pro Trucks and U.S. Legends classes.

Then, on Saturday night, heat races and a qualifying session lead into features in the Bandolero, NASCAR Bombers, NASCAR Super Stocks, U.S. Legends, USAC HPD Midgets and South West Tour Truck Series/Pro Trucks divisions. The weekend’s lengthiest features – the Late Models 100 and Super Late Models 150 – will feature pit stops at their midway points where car crews can add fuel, but not tires, for the races’ second halves.

One of the most affordable entertainment options in Las Vegas, the Bullring’s annual series will feature 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 702.644.4444 or online at LVMS.com.
