In addition to a full schedule of racing, the special night will include waterless boat races, skid plate car racing and post-race fireworks. The evening’s race lineup will be anchored by the 76-lap “Spirit of ’76” feature in the NASCAR Super Late Model division.

In addition to the NASCAR Super Late Models, NASCAR Super Stocks, Grand American Modifieds and Bombers, as well as USLCI Legends, Thunder Cars and Bandolero Bandits and Outlaws, will see action. The Bombers feature will be a 25-lap “Breakout race,” where drivers will be penalized with a mandatory stop on pit road for breaking the 20-second barrier on any lap.

The Night of Fire is The Bullring’s last race until Aug. 27, when NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing action will resume after a seven-week break to avoid the summer swelter. That night is the Keith Danser Kids Candy Toss Presented by Whelen Engineering and will be the third-to-last racing weekend of The Bullring’s 2016 regular season.

One of the most affordable entertainment options in Las Vegas, the Bullring’s annual series features family friendly concession prices that include $2 hot dogs and Coca-Cola products and $3 Budweiser beer. Spectators can also save money by purchasing admission tickets in advance by visiting or calling the LVMS ticket office at 702.644.4444 or online at

Gates open for spectators at 5 p.m. Pacific Time on Saturday, opening ceremonies are set for 7 p.m. and racing follows immediately.
