Featherlite Southwest Series, NASCAR Touring: Craig Raudman, who has never won the Series championship but who has long been one of the fastest drivers on the West Coast, won the Star Nursery 250. The event was a 250-lap chase around the 3/8-mile Bullring on the grounds of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Eddy McKean finished second to Raudman, Mark Reed was third, John Baker finished fourth and Nick Joanides came home fifth.

M.K. Kanke held on to his lead in the championship standings, despite finishing 16th at The Bullring.

Four races into the season, Kanke leads second-place Darrell LaMoure 645-550.

** American LeMans Series: In preparation for the 24 Hours of LeMans endurance racing classic this summer, 10 cars using Goodyear tires participated in a test session for race entrants at the venue.

The test is an important event, as it is the only chance to practice on the complete circuit before the week of the event. Part of the LeMans track includes public roads.

Goodyear cars looked very fast during the test. The Reynard-Judd entry from Dick Barbour Racing was the fastest car in the LMP 675 class and the Speedlab Saleen team was quickest among the GTS cars.

Team Corvette, which won the 24 Hours of Daytona earlier this season, also participated in the test.
