Gafforini Rules Las Vegas


LAS VEGAS — Scott Gafforini won the 40-lap NASCAR Super Late Model feature at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Gafforini grabbed the lead early and had things pretty much his own way until the caution flag flew with just nine laps remaining. Gafforini cruised away on the restart and won his first Bullring NASCAR Super Late Model feature of the 2011 Whelen All-American Series. Jay Beasley finished second and Robert Ewing was third. Steve Anderson and Glen Burke completed the top five.

Chris Trickle is undefeated so far in 2011 in the USLCI Bandolero Bandits division. His win tonight marked his third consecutive victory in as many race nights. Austin Morris shares the same status with Trickle: he is undefeated this year in the USLCI Bandolero Outlaw class.

The 30-lap NASCAR Charger main event was won by Patrick O’Hanley — his first win in only the third race of his rookie year. Wade Pearson won the 25-lap NASCAR Bomber feature.

Seventeen-year-old Jessica Clark won the 30-lap USAC Focus Midget feature. Frank McCourt won the 12-lap Thunder Car feature. C.J. Hulsey won the 25-lap Legend Cars feature.
