The weather wasn't typical "Vegas-style," except for the wind, but the racing prevailed. The
dreaded R-word (rain) came through for a brief period but never really slowed the action for long.
Day 1 of the K&N Spring Fling Vegas event at The Strip At Las Vegas Motor Speedway was reserved for
a free test 'n' tune day sponsored by Yukon Gear & Axle. By the end of the day, over 400 tech cards
were sold coming from 18 states, three Canadian provinces and Mexico. With more entries expected in
the coming days, it will once again set Spring Fling Vegas attendance records.
The day also included the Ultimate Shootout reserved for the first 48 door cars and 48 dragsters to
enter the high roller event. Each category ran separate until the final round where the winner of
each squared off with the winner receiving a brand new Don Davis Race Cars roadster and the
runner-up receiving a new Racetech dragster.
With two cars left to run in each class and nightfall upon the track, the decision was made to
complete the race on Thursday morning. The remaining combatants are Mark Simonian in his '89
Firebird and will race Zak Clark in his Nova for the right to go to the final against either Shane
Thompson or Aaron Steinky.
