LAS VEGAS - Some of the West Coast's best drivers will invade The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to compete in the 10th Annual StarNursery.com NASCAR Late Model Classic this Saturday.

NASCAR Late Model track champions and many other drivers from the West Coast will come together for the twin 70-lap main event to provide high-intensity racing action.

Due to the fact that this is a 140-lap race, drivers will have to take a mandatory pit stop at the halfway point of the racing excitement.

"The two-segment format gives drivers an opportunity to make changes on their car and develop a strategy," said David Stetzer, director of short-track events. "After 70 laps, we will wave the red flag and give the competitors a 15-minute break. They will be allowed to add fuel, change two tires and make other approved adjustments."

Drivers will be competing for a share of the $15,000 purse. The StarNursery.com NASCAR Late Model Classic is giving the biggest payoff of the season.

This year's Sunbelt Regional champion and LVMS' Late Model champion, Dick Cobb, will be competing in the StarNursery.com Late Model Classic. Also competing is Mike Duncan the Mesa Marin Late Model champion. Many other local drivers, such as Chuck Trickle, Steve Anderson and Lance Magin will all add to the event.

NASCAR Winston Cup driver Kurt Busch of Las Vegas won last year's event.

Also adding to the racing excitement is the ARCA Trucks. The trucks will be competing in a 50-lap main event.

Spectator gates open at 5 p.m. The first race starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and military and $2 for children 6-12. Children 5 and under are free.
