Have Some Fun! The Chris Trickle Classic Takes Place At The Bullring On 6/3
The NASCAR Super Late Models division will be on display as Las Vegas Motor Speedway honors one of its own at the Chris Trickle Classic at The Bullring on Saturday night.
Two 35-lap NASCAR Super Late Models features bookend a full schedule of racing on the special night, which will honor the memory of the late Chris Trickle, who died in 1998 after being the victim of a still unsolved drive-by shooting the previous year. Trickle was a Bullring star before his untimely death, and his nephew, Chris, a 24-time winner at the LVMS short track, will compete in both Super Late Models races.
Reigning NASCAR Super Late Models track champion Justin Johnson, current points leader Peyton Saxton and six-time track champion Scott Gafforini are also expected to compete in the dual 35-lap races. NASCAR Bombers, Super Stocks and Grand American Modifieds, as well as USLCI Legends, Thunder Cars and Bandoleros, will be in action on the nine-race evening.
Fans can enjoy a pre-race autograph session on the track, where they can meet and mingle with their favorite drivers and get up close and personal with the 3/8-mile paved oval.
Saturday’s race night is the seventh event at The Bullring in 2017 and is the fourth racing weekend in a five-week stretch for the short track. The Bullring will take a month-long break before hosting the highly popular Night of Fire on Monday, July 3, which will be the track’s final action until competition returns again on Aug. 26.
A fun and affordable event, racing at The Bullring features $2 hot dogs and Coca-Cola products and $3 Budweiser beers. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $8 by calling the LVMS Ticket Office at 800.644.4444 or visiting LVMS.com and are $10 at the gate, and children 12 and under receive free admission when accompanying a ticketed adult.
