Alderman collects fifth Late Model win at Bullring.

LAS VEGAS-- NASCAR Late Model driver Thane Alderman posted his fifth win at The Orleans NASCAR Weekly Racing Series presented by Dodge at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Saturday night.

A four-car invert forced Alderman to start third instead of second based on his qualifying time. The Sunbelt Region champion contender took command of the caution-filled 30-lap main event by lap 3 and never looked back. Teammate and 2000 Sunbelt Region champion, Dick Cobb quickly moved through the pack to second behind Alderman. The teammates held off Steve Anderson and Rich Attisani to finish with a one-two punch.

"I got an early lead and all the wrecks were behind me," Alderman said. "A good place to be is in the front.

"This win will help us in the region championship," Alderman said. "Top fives (finishes) are the goal and wins are just a bonus."

In NASCAR Outlaw Stock action, Glenn Burke won both twin 25-lap main events. In the first main event, Burke held off Dick Attisani and Mark Schottmuller. While in the second, Burke held off Attisani and Len DeJoria.

NASCAR Charger driver Tom Youmans had a strong run in the 20-lap main event. Youmans held off a hard-charging Travis Swalwell and Doug Matter for the win.

Spencer Clark took the checkered flag in the 25-lap Legends Cars main event. Rick Rogas finished second followed by Taylor Barton and Michael Fredericks.

Bear Rzesnowiecky posted his third Bandolero Cars win of the season. Tom Lovelady finished second followed by Austin Murphy and Andrew Murphy.

Dave Green won the 15-lap Thunder Roadster main event. Stoney Gray finished second followed by Paul Green and Rick Rogas.

Justin Miller posted his first win in the 40-lap Bullring Bomber race.
