Thanksgiving weekend Las Vegas Bracket Nationals Nov. 26-30

September 4, 2008 by  

The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will present its annual Thanksgiving Weekend high-stakes bracket race Nov. 26-30. The Las Vegas Bracket Nationals will feature a complete show with winners each day in the Super Pro, Pro, Sportsman and Motorcycle classes from Thursday through Sunday of the Thanksgiving holiday. The Super Pro class will race for $7,500 to win on Saturday and Sunday.

The thrilling and extremely popular Ultimate Gambler returns on Sunday morning with its $1,000 entry fee and winner-take-all purse. In the past, purses for the 1/8-mile shootout have paid as much as $67,000 to the final-round winner.

The holiday drag racing extravaganza begins one day earlier this year – on Wednesday, with the Turkey Thaw Thrill Show – featuring Jet Cars, fireworks, Monster Trucks, a Super Quick Shootout and the senior citizens’ “Geezer Gambler.”

Another holiday tradition that draws heavy participation is the Christmas decoration contest, where race teams “deck the halls” with lights, motorized figures – and even a snow-making machine or two.
