Races This Weekend at The Bullring

What’s being touted as the biggest race of the year at The Bullring arrives this weekend.

The Bullring, Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s NASCAR-sanctioned 3/8-mile asphalt oval, will host the annual Open Comp. The Fall Classic’s grand finale is Saturday’s 150-lap Super Late Model feature and the winner’s payoff has jumped from $7,777 to $10,000. Races begin today and run through Saturday, and a full schedule is available at the Speedway website listed below.

The Bullring’s annual finale routinely draws racers from California, Arizona and Colorado. Previous Open Comp winners include: Dustin Ash (2010), Justin Johnson (2009), Matt Jaskol (2008) and Taylor Barton (2007), all from Las Vegas.

The Open Comp’s $10,000 winner’s check has attracted entries from NASCAR Camping World Truck Series rookie Tyler Tanner of Rochester, Wash. and Colorado phenom Chris Eggleston. Eggleston recently won the 300-lap “The Race” at North Wilkesboro, N.C.

Saturday’s oval-track festivities also will include a 75-lap Lucas Oil Modifieds feature, Bombers, Late Models, and Legend Cars.

The Bullring's concession stand offers a family-friendly dollar menu, including $1 hot dogs, $1 Coca-Cola products and $1 Bud or Bud Light 12-ounce drafts. General admission parking always is free. Fans viewing the races in the Stockyard are invited to listen to the announcers on 101.5 FM.
