BULLRING: Doss, Mardis score victories during West Coast Short-Track Championships

Jeremy Doss won the 125-lap SPEARS Southwest Tour season finale and Jim Mardis captured the 75-lap Lucas Oil Modified Series feature race as The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway closed the 2014 season on Saturday night with the West Coast Short-Track Championships.
Doss, from Upper Lake, Calif., dominated the Southwest Tour main event in much the same way he ran away with the 150-lap NASCAR Super Late Model Open Comp at The Bullring on Oct. 25. Doss, 17, grabbed the lead from Ross Strmiska on lap 70 and pulled out to a 2-second lead before a late caution bunched up the field for the final 25 laps.
"This just feels great," Doss said. "We've had really good cars here the last two times we've been here. I can't thank my crew enough for all their hard work."
Doss was followed to the checkered flag by Garrett Archer, Blaine Rocha, Austin Reed and Greg Voigt. Noah Gragson of Las Vegas finished ninth. Derek Thorn, who was caught up in a multi-car wreck on the 25th lap and had to pull behind the wall for the remainder of the race, finished 22nd but clinched the Southwest Tour series championship.
In the Lucas Oil Modified main event, Mardis, of Yucaipa, Calif., led early for five laps but surrendered the lead on the 12th lap. He dropped out of the top five briefly before charging back into second place on lap 41 and passing race leader Shelby Stroebel with 10 laps to go. Stroebel settled for second and Dylan Cappello of Peoria, Ariz., was third and clinched the series championship.
"Shelby Stroebel, I wasn't going to touch him to win this race and I'm glad I didn't have to," Mardis said. "That dude has raced me clean ever since we started racing together. I've got to dedicate this to a buddy of mine who passed away a couple of months ago. We've got (his name) on the dash and took him to Victory Lane tonight. I don't even know what to say - I'm shocked."
Jeff Kelley of Eden, Utah, won the 30-lap SRL Legend Car feature and wrapped up The Bullring track championship. Shawn Buckley of Simi Valley, Calif., finished second and clinched the series championship.
Cory Elliott of Bakersfield, Calif., won the 35-lap SRL S2 Late Model feature and fellow Bakersfield resident Brandon Weaver finished 13th and clinched the series championship.
Peyton Saxton of Las Vegas won the 30-lap SRL Legends main event. Tony Mangini of Benicia, Calif., finished sixth and clinched the series championship.
