BULLRING: Kiser grabs NASCAR Super Stocks points lead


Jason Kiser's Super Stock feature victory puts him on top of points.


Las Vegas' Jason Kiser earned more than a race victory with his NASCAR Super Stocks feature win at The Bullring on the night of May 16.

The reigning class champion catapulted into the season points lead with his win - the 15th of his career at Las Vegas Motor Speedway's 3/8-mile paved oval - and now leads the division with 210 points. Matt Larsen, who finished second, is 11 points behind, while former points leader Phil Goodwin missed the May 16 race with a back injury and fell to fifth with 160 points.

Meanwhile, five-time track champion Scott Gafforini widened his NASCAR Super Late Models points lead with another feature victory, and he holds a 25-point advantage (256-231) over Barry Karr. Peyton Saxton also used a victory to widen his lead in the USLCI Legends Pro division and stands 64 points ahead of Bryan Grandin with a 298-234 margin.

Cameron Morga, whom Saxton passed in turn four on the final lap, expanded his USLCI Legends Young Lions class points lead over Caden Carlin to 350-276. Gina Tillman (USLCI Legends Master) and Devin Lane (USLCI Legends Semi-Pro) also maintained their divisional points leads.

The USLCI O'Hanley's Bandolero standings remained tight, with Kyle Jacks holding a four-point advantage over Philip Root in the Outlaws division and R.J. Smotherman using another victory to stay ahead of Ethan DeGuevara, 348-326.

NASCAR Bombers and Grand American Modifieds, as well as the USLCI Thunder Cars, did not run on May 16, and their points standings remained unchanged.






Cappello, Gafforini among big winners on Military Appreciation Night


Scott Gafforini celebrates in victory lane after winning the NASCAR Super Late Models feature.


The wind blew, engines roared and fans helped celebrate Armed Forces Day at The Bullring on Lucas Oil Presents Military Appreciation Night on Saturday.

Active-duty and retired military personnel and their families were given free admission to Las Vegas Motor Speedway's 3/8-mile paved oval for a full night of racing, and distinguished representatives from Nellis Air Force Base were on-hand to participate in the night's festivities.

Col. Ross Anderson, the base's 926th Wing Commander, performed a swearing-in ceremony for new recruits, the Nellis Air Force Base Honor Guard presented the colors, Chaplain Glen Harris gave the invocation and 2nd Lt. Daniel Vargas belted out a beautiful rendition of the national anthem to begin the evening.

"This sort of thing is very important to all of us, and recognition for our contributions is massive for our people," said Col. Anderson, who waved the green flag to kick off the night's first race. "It just means a lot for our team, and I hear about it many times down the road. The swearing-in is not just for the kids who signed up to join the Air Force it's a public statement of support for everything that's going on right now."

The Lucas Oil Modifieds made one of their two annual appearances at The Bullring, anchoring the night's schedule with a 75-lap feature that will be shown on MAVTV. Reigning Lucas Oil Modified Series Champion Dylan Cappello of Peoria, Ariz., out-raced 29 other cars to cross the finish line first and was all smiles during his victory lane interview.

"That thing just drove itself, practically," said Cappello, said of his No. 11C STR Chevrolet. "My right foot is a little sore, but that's about it (for negatives tonight)."

Jason Irwin, who has 31 career Bullring victories, was second, followed by Jimmy Mardis in third and Las Vegas' Doug Hamm in fourth.

Scott Gafforini easily won the 40-lap NASCAR Super Late Models feature to break a tie with Phil Goodwin for most Saturday night victories at The Bullring since 2000 with his 59th. The talented veteran has more than 500 career wins since beginning his racing career at the age of 13.

Peyton Saxton took advantage of a final-lap mistake by Cameron Morga and passed his good friend on the final turn to win his fourth USLCI Legends feature of the year. Saxton was energized by the hardfought victory.

In addition to Insomniac, the event is co-sponsored by Las Vegas Motor Speedway, The Cannery, Enterprise, Big Valley Towing, City National Bank and ESPN Radio Las Vegas. Registration begins at 7 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at 8 a.m.

The tournament helps those in need in Southern Nevada and benefited more than 45 charities in 2014 alone.

The entry fee is $1,000 per foursome or $250 for individuals, and players will receive a round of golf, golf cart use, unlimited range balls, continental breakfast, awards lunch, gifts and goodie bags. Complimentary chair massage and a ball drop, courtesy of Maverick Helicopters, also will be available.
