Las Vegas, Nevada (October 13, 2001) Craig Raudman of Bakersfield, Calif. set a new track record in qualifying for the Featherlite Southwest Series, NASCAR Touring for the Nevada "100" Saturday night at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Raudman toured the 1.5 mile oval with a time of 36.354/148.539 mph and extended his own season record of seven Bud Pole Awards for the 2001 season. Raudman eyes Lance Hooper's mark of nine Bud Pole Awards in a season set in 1995 by Lance Hooper. "I think the record is within reach," stated Raudman. "Records are nice, but this season we are just focusing on the big prize."

Raudman currently leads Auggie Vidovich Jr. in the season point standings by 199 points. Vidovich qualified 11th for the 67 lap contest that is scheduled to start at 6:35 pm PST. Following Raudman in qualifying was Doug McCoun of Prunedale, Calif. in second, Scott Lynch, Dan Holtz, and Jim Pettit II rounding out the top five qualifiers.
