The Strip's inaugural Wild, Wild West Thanksgiving Classic



LAS VEGAS -- Mark Cook of LaGrange, Ohio, today won the final round of Super Pro competition to complete Saturday's round of the rain-delayed Wild, Wild West Thanksgiving Classic at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The second round of Super and Pro drag racing had been completed on Saturday evening when rain again fell on The Strip. The rain, coupled with falling temperatures, caused Saturday's race to be continued on Sunday morning. Saturday and Sunday's Jerry's Nugget Casino Run for the Money were combined into one event.

Neil Evans of Las Vegas, driving a '79 Chevrolet LUV sponsored by Jerry's Nugget Casino, defeated Matt Paulin of Melba, Ida., to claim the $1,000 first prize in Saturday's Pro finale.

The combined Saturday-Sunday Jerry's Nugget Casino Run for the Money event, which included additional purse money from Jerry Mock and Write-On Window Markers, was won by Jeff Dewey of Twin Falls, Ida. (Super Pro) and Tom Easterday of Fullerton, Calif. (Pro).
