Father-son teams hit Bullring for 4th Annual Father's Day Double Header.

LAS VEGAS-- All across the country this weekend, families will celebrate Father's Day with dinners, family trips and fellowship. But a couple of local father-son duos will spend the weekend rooting each other to victory at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Greg Haase and his son Alex will get the chance to go head-to-head with Steve Anderson and his son David in this Saturday's True Value Hardware Night at the Races Father's Day Double Header.

Greg Haase and Steve Anderson will both be looking to move up in the NASCAR Late Model standings as they compete in twin 30-lap features as part of the Orleans NASCAR Weekly Racing Series presented by Dodge. But between races, the two fathers will watch their sons battle it out in the 25-lap Legends Cars feature.

"It's great racing together with my son, " Haase said. "It's a family sport. My wife Tammy, son Alex and I all enjoy it."

"Racing is something I never really pushed him into," Steve Anderson said. " A couple of years ago David decided racing was something he wanted to try. I'm looking to get him into a late model next year and both of us have a chance to run at the Bullring together."

Alex Haase, 12, is second in rookie standings and sixth in championship point standings, while 20-year-old David is the division's point leader.

"My dad started in Legends and I started in Bandoleros, then I moved up to the Legends this year," Alex said. "We are glad to all be at the Bullring together. When I raced go-karts I was at that track while my dad was at the Bullring."

"I grew up watching my dad race," David Anderson said. "I was interested in it. I love racing. I am looking forward to getting into late models to race with my dad next year."
