Die Cast Hot Rod All Stars Race



LAS VEGAS --

Header Goes Here
The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway held its annual Thanksgiving Bracket Nationals. A new race was added this year the "Die Cast Hot Rod All Stars". The 8 car field hand-picked by the tower staff, included a chop top Nova, a Pink van, a Blown Camaro, Vega Wagon, '53 Ranch Wagon, '66 Nova wagon, '74 Hemi Challenger, '67 low ride Nova. All cars resembled the pocket die cast cars of our youth.

This showcase event was laddered on a blind draw and raced on a full tree bracket format.

In the first round the Camaro took out the Vega Wagon, the Challenger got past the Nova Wagon, the 53 Wagon over broken 67 Nova, and in a battle of the tallest vs the shortest the Van takes the win.

In second round the '53 wagon and van dialed them even and the Wagon held on for the win. The Camaro turned on the red light giving the win to the Challenger. So the finals will match the Challenger with the '53 Wagon.

Dustin Lee in the '53 Ranch Wagon took the RT.021 over Tony Carestia in the '74 Challenger .093 and held him off at the finish line 11.750 on a 11.73 dial to a 9.067 on a 8.99 dial.
