The 1995 SCORE Las Vegas 250 takes place this weekend in Las Vegas, Neveda. The course, located 22 miles south of downtown Las Vegas, is a 79.91-mile loop. The racers will make 3 laps on the course.

The Tecate Trophy-Truck series for unlimited utility vehicles gets underway at 6:00 a.m. Saturday morning. Drivers include Toyota's Ivan Stewart, Dodge's Walker Evans, Chevrolet's Larry Ragland and Roger Mears, Jeep's Kurt LeDuc and Ford's Robby Gordon. Bob Richey of Riverside, CA, who is currently 10th in the championshhip points, drives a Ford without factory support. Richey says that it's important to start at the front in a race where several laps are run.

"Dust has a tendancy to hang in the valleys. It will be to our advantage to stay out front" Richey said.

Richey hopes to close the gap between him and points leader Ivan Stewart this weekend. A win for Richey would put him in contention for the championship.
