LAS VEGAS - Race action was in full-swing for The Orleans NASCAR Weekly Racing Series at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Saturday night.

Thane Alderman posted his first NASCAR Late Model win after qualifying eighth for the 40-lap main event. Alderman moved up to fourth by the half-way mark behind leader Ray Hooper Jr., Mike Cofer and Wayne Jacks. Alderman and Cofer battled side-by-side for the lead out of Turn 2 on lap 32. Alderman took command and held his lead to the checkered flag. Cofer finished second followed by Scott Gafforini and Ray Hooper Jr.

"The crew did a great job," Alderman said. "I want to thank the other racers for clean racing, real clean"

In NASCAR Outlaw Stock action, Glenn Burke and Dick Attisani collected wins in the twin 20-lap main events. Burke held off Michael Haslam and Len DeJoria for the win in the first main event. Burke and Haslam played bumper tag in the second main event until both were black flagged on lap 15. Attisani who was running second, passed Mark Schottmuller on the inside to take the lead. Attisani took the checkered flag followed by Tom Youmans and Schottmuller.

"It was great," the 60-year-old Attisani said. "That was for all the senior citizens."

Guy Griebel collected his first NASCAR Charger win in the 25-lap main event. Tom Youmans gave Griebel a good run, but Griebel was able to hold his lead to take the checkered flag. Youmans finished second followed by Don Sargent and Travis Swalwell.

"This is my first victory out here and my first year of racing," Griebel said. "I give it to Tom (Youmans) he came from way back in the pack. He is the guy to beat out here."

Michael Morrissey proved strong in the Legends Cars division. He took the lead on lap 10 of the 20-lap main event. David Anderson battled Morrissey hard for the lead through to two green, white, checkered periods on the last laps. Morrissey was able to hold off Anderson for the win.
