Car Football; points battles heat up Bullring at LVMS

LAS VEGAS -- The second annual car football game and NASCAR Weekly Racing Series highlight the card Saturday night at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Division points battles are on the line with three races left in the season.

NASCAR Late Model rookie Jason Allen continues to lead his division. As the season nears its end, Allen looks to hold off Steve Anderson, Ray Hooper Jr., and Bill Newman. One point separates Anderson and Hooper, who both are looking for their first main event win this season. In addition, Allen has a substantial point lead (563-471) over fellow rookie Kyle Busch for Rookie of the Year honors.

Fabian" The Silver Fox" Bray, the 2000 Grand American Modified track champion, trails Doug" The Hound Dog" Hamm by three points. The" fox and hound" battle has become an annual affair as these two fight it out once again for the track title.

Demolition derby teams will compete in the second annual car football game. The object is to push the football, an upside-down Toyota Corolla, across the opposing team's goal line. The metal mayhem, which will be completed in two rounds, will pack plenty of high-energy excitement.

In addition to a 50-lap event for NASCAR Late Models and a 30-lap Grand American Modified feature, the Hitchin' Post/Exiss Legends Cars (30 laps), Chargers (25 laps) and Thunder Roadsters will compete Saturday night.
