Duel In The Desert On Tap For Las Vegas


LAS VEGAS – The 22nd annual Duel in the Desert for IMCA modifieds and IMCA Northern Sport Mods will fill The Dirt Track at Las Vegas’ pit area next week for a four-day event.

Running from Nov. 13-16, Wednesday is practice followed by two nights of preliminary racing, with heats, B-mains and A-mains that will lock drivers into the Saturday finale.

The modifieds have a pair of mains each preliminary night, moving the top four to the championship race, while the single sport mod main elevates the top six.

Last year, 206 IMCA modifieds and 97 IMCA Northern Sport Mods created the largest event in the Western United States, and Jason Hughes from Watts, Okla., won the Saturday finale.

Hughes earned $7,777.77 for his win in the 40-lapper.

In the 25-lap sport mod main on Saturday, it was Denison, Iowa’s Jake Sauchu winning the $1,777.77 share for his championship run.

The event will also be available on IMCA.tv streaming.
