Drivers from Calif., Wash., Utah, Colo., Idaho and Canada to Compete in Fall Classic at LVMS

October 23, 2008 by  

Drivers from Calif., Wash., Utah, Colo., Idaho and Canada are towing in to Las Vegas for this weekend’s Fall Classic at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The highlight of the two-day event is the 150-lap, $5,000-to-win MetroPCS Super Late Model feature.

MetroPCS Super Late Model invaders set to take on Las Vegas’ finest include: Ryan Philpott (Tracy, Calif.), Jared Vorse (Olympia, Wash.), Nathan Fleury (Spokane, Wash.), Andy Allen (Orange Grove, Calif.), Dave Garber (Spokane, Wash.), Eric Richardson (Bakersfield, Calif.), Dan Rhodes (Yelm, Wash.), Tony Jackson (Palmdale, Calif.), Michael Hadderheim (Salt Lake City, Utah) and Zan Sharp (Logan, Utah).

Last year’s Fall Classic concluded with a thrilling finish as Taylor Barton passed Tom Lovelady on the final lap to win the MetroPCS Super Late Model feature.

The weekend’s racing program also will include Late Models, Modifieds, Bandoleros, Legends Cars and Bombers.

A former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver has filed an entry. Trevor Boys, of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, once again is entered in the Modified race. Boys competed in the nation’s premier stock car division in the 1980s when it was called the NASCAR Winston Cup Series.  He perhaps is best known for the spectacular flip he took at Talladega, Ala., in 1984, on CBS-TV (which still may be seen on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_HPGS5oH_o ).
