LAS VEGAS -Two-time Super Bowl champion Mike Cofer won the Super Late Model twin 30-lap main events at The Orleans NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Saturday night.

In the first Super Late Model main event, Cofer started third and challenged 16-year-old race leader Spencer Clark for the lead. At the halfway mark, Cofer took command from Clark and maintained his lead to take the yellow-checkered flag. Clark finished second followed by Chris Clyne and Don Williams. There were a total of eight caution periods.

Cofer started fifth in the second Super Late Model main event and quickly took the lead from Don Williams on lap 10. Cofer maintained a substantial lead to take the checkered flag and post his fourth win this season. Chuck Trickle finished second followed by Williams and Clark.

"It is just great to come out here and double up in the twin mains," said Cofer. "We have put so much work into it, the guys deserve it. Victory lane is where we want to be."

While Taylor Barton looked for his sixth Semi-Pro Legends Cars win, 13-year-old Alex Haase had his own agenda. Barton led the pack from the second lap, while Haase and Jimmy Parker Jr. challenged him for the lead. Haase took command on the white-flag lap in the 20-lap main event. Hasse held on for his first win this season. Barton finished second followed by Parker Jr. and Tom Lovelady.

Although Masters Legends Cars driver Rick Rogas crossed the finish line behind Pro Legends Cars driver Michael Fredericks, he was awarded the Pro/Master Legends Cars win in the 20-lap main event. Fredericks jumped the start and was scored as the last car on the lead lap. Rogas was the top-finishing Masters driver while John Burritt was the top-finishing Pro driver with a second-place finish. Steve Legg finished third followed by Dennis Lovelady.

Wayne Morris Jr. posted his second Stewart Motorports IMCA Modified win this season. Morris worked hard for the win after he was sent to the rear of the field on the start for not keeping the speed of the pace car. Todd Stancliff was awarded the pole position on a full-restart and maintained his lead until Larry Gerchman took command on lap 15. Morris continued to move to the front of the field and took the lead from Gerchman on lap 19 and held on for the win.

Dave Green won the Thunder Roadsters presented by Tri-State Petroleum and VP Racing Fuels 15-lap Main event. Stoney Gray finished second followed by Mike Montes and Matt Ross.

In Bandolero Cars race action, Jonathan Mawhinney won the 10-lap main event. Jeremiah Wagner finished second followed by Connor Kassik and Brandon Oxborrow.

Lee Hatch of Covina, Calif. won the 99-lap Mechanix Wear Speed Trucks feature event. Andrew Lewis of Corona, Calif. finished second followed by Dan Digiacomo of Laguna Nigel, Calif. and John Burritt of Sparks, Nev.
