Dylan Kwasniewski, who made the jump from The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to the NASCAR Nationwide Series, will return to his racing roots this weekend when he competes in the Fall Classic featuring the Open Comp 150 on his hometown 3/8-mile paved oval.

Kwasniewski will be joined in the field for the Open Comp 150 by 2013 Bullring Super Late Model champion Jay Beasley, who just completed his rookie season in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Series, recently crowned Bullring Super Late Model champion Scott Gafforini and up-and-coming driver Chris Trickle.

Kwasniewski will attempt to qualify for Saturday night's $10,000-to-win, 150-lap NASCAR Super Late Model feature race in a car prepared by Phil's Phabrication of Las Vegas. Other divisions competing Friday and Saturday include NASCAR Late Models, Super Stocks and Bombers, USAC HPD Midgets, Southwest Tour Trucks and Bandoleros.

Kwasniewski, 19, won Legend Car track championships at The Bullring in 2008 and 2009 before moving up to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, where he was the West champion in 2012 and the East champion in 2013. This season, Kwasniewski is driving the No. 31 Chevrolet for Turner Scott Motorsports in the Nationwide Series. After 30 races, Kwasniewski is 11th in points and has posted three top-10 finishes.

This picture was taken when we used to do demolition derby competitions back in 2009. This is Dan Patella in the #69 car and Gary Wyatt in the #65 car.

The station wagon with the bent frame, was repaired and continued on to a few more demo derby competitions.

All in the name of the sport, we're considering going back on the road again during the 2015 season.

Beasley posted eight Super Late Model wins last season en route to the track championship and capped his season with a victory in the $10,000 Open Comp at the Fall Classic. He earned a fulltime ride in the K&N Pro Series East this season, where he finished 13th in points with four top-10 finishes in 16 starts.

Gafforini is coming off a banner season in which he won six feature races and claimed his fifth track championship. He also won the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Nevada state championship and, with 57 career victories at The Bullring, will be considered one of the pre-race favorites to claim the $10,000 first-place check on Saturday night.

Trickle, 14, made his first start in the Super Late Model division on Aug. 30 and finished sixth. He drove to a third-place finish in his second start two weeks later and capped the season with his first victory in the division on Oct. 4. Trickle, the grandson of former Bullring track champion Chuck Trickle, is the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Rookie of the Year in Nevada and was the youngest driver to win a NASCAR-sanctioned race in 2014.

Spectator gates will open at 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday, qualifying begins at 4:30 Friday and heat races begin at 4:15 Saturday.

The Bullring is one of the best entertainment values in Southern Nevada with affordable ticket prices and family-friendly concession prices including $1 hot dogs, $1 Coca-Cola products and $2 Budweiser beer.

Irwin captures Legend Cars Race Victory at The Bullring


Drivers celebrate after clinching the national championship.

Jason Irwin continued his domination at his adopted home track by winning the 40-lap Pro Division main event and clinching the national championship Saturday night during the U.S. Legend Cars Asphalt Nationals at The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Irwin, who lives in Albuquerque, N.M., but has raced much of the year in Las Vegas, grabbed the lead from Las Vegan Peyton Saxton with 12 laps remaining in the Pro Division feature and held off a furious charge from Saxton during the closing laps. It was his ninth Legend Car victory at The Bullring, where he also won the NASCAR Grand American Modified track championship this season with four victories.

"My car was a little loose all night," Irwin said. "I thought it'd tighten up from practice but it was a little loose. Overall, it was good enough."

Saxton, who won the Legend Car Pro track championship this season, led for 17 laps Saturday night before he was overtaken by Irwin on the backstretch on lap 29. The two drivers ran bumper-to-bumper from that point until Irwin pulled away by a couple of car lengths at the finish.

"The car was pretty dialed in at the beginning and I was able to lead most of the race and then that caution came out (on lap 25) and the car was leaking a little oil and getting on that right rear and it was a little loose coming out," Saxton said.

"But Jason is just a great wheel man and finishing second to him is like winning to me. He's a real good driver and I have to congratulate him. He's a good buddy of mine so it's pretty cool to see him win and finish on his bumper."

Jeremy Wood, Joey Padgett and Kyle Beattie rounded out the top five in the Pro Division main.

T.J. Clark of North Las Vegas scored an emotional victory in the Masters Division main, where he led three times for 34 laps. Clark's son, Spencer, was a promising NASCAR racer on the West Coast who was killed in a traffic accident in 2006.

"I'm very thankful to be here tonight … but Spencer Clark was riding with me - he was driving that car and I was just riding along with him and it worked out in our favor," Clark said.

Clark beat Robert Gayton to the finish line, Randy Schaaf was third, Tim Brockhouse finished fourth and Scotty Scott took fifth. Sean Glennon and Bob Weymouth were tied for the lead in points going into the race and Glennon finished eighth, one spot ahead of Weymouth, and clinched the national championship.

In the Legends Semi-Pro main event, Tim Mangini grabbed the lead on the fifth lap and held off Julia Landauer for the win. Robby Lyons, Tristan Haider and Will Martin rounded out the top five.

In the Young Lions main event, Carson Ferguson took the lead on lap 12 after the second caution period of the race and stayed in front through four more cautions to capture the race and the national championship.

It was no surprise that Ian Anderson of Henderson ran away with the 40-lap Thunder Car main event. Anderson, the 2013 Bullring track champion in the division, won five feature races this season and led flag to flag in Saturday's main for the victory. Anderson twice had built up sizeable leads before a pair of cautions came out and tightened the field. Adam Welch was second and Kyle Beattie was third.

Braden Langille of Nova Scotia, Canada, led flag to flag and won the 20-lap Bandolero main event by a dominating 4 seconds over Dezel West of Henderson. West started last in the six-car main and worked his way into second place by lap 19 but didn't have enough for Langille.

NEXT RACE - Oct. 24-25: The Fall Classic featuring the Open Comp 150: NASCAR Super Late Models, Late Models, Super Stocks, Bombers, USLCI Bandoleros, USAC HPD Midgets, ASA Pro Truck Series. The Bullring continues to be one of the best entertainment values in the Las Vegas Valley with affordable ticket prices and family-friendly concession prices including $1 hot dogs, $1 Coca-Cola products and $2 Budweiser beer.

Tickets are available online by visiting www.LVMS.com/Bullring.
