The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will open its 2012 season on March 7-8 with World of Outlaws Sprint Cars, West Coast 360 Sprint Cars, West Coast Late Models and IMCA Modifieds on a new clay surface.

Late Models and IMCA Modifieds will open the two-day show during LVMS’ NASCAR Weekend on Wednesday, March 7.

World of Outlaws Sprint Car and West Coast 360 Sprint Cars will take to the half-mile track on Thursday, March 8. The West Coast 360 Sprint Car Showdown will attract the top drivers from the United States Auto Club’s (USAC) Western Region, battling with the top regional racers from the American Sprint Car Series (ASCS).
