Looking Forward to Las Vegas

Antelope, CA (June 5, 2011)–Bill McAnally Racing driver Moses Smith and the No. 16 HASA Pool Products/NAPA Gold Filters Toyota team are looking to give team owner, Bill McAnally a third victory at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Smith is coming to the Bullring to compete in Saturday's O’Reilly Auto Parts 200 NASCAR K&N Series West event.

The series has made only 3 previous visits to the d-shaped short track just north of Las Vegas. Bill McAnally Racing’s Austin Cameron put the NAPA entry on the pole in 2002 and brought home the victory. The following year, veteran driver Jim Inglebright piloted BMR’s Jellybelly entry to Victory Lane after leading the most laps and starting on the pole.

The Bullring is not new to Smith. He ran a full season in the ASA Speed Trucks in 2005 where he brought home a second place finish in three starts.

“The Bullring has some good racing,” said Smith. “Its d-shape reminds me of the track in Kyle, Texas. It’ll allow for some great side-by-side racing with plenty of opportunity to pass. It’s going to be a great race for the fans and a great opportunity for the HASA team to close the point gap for this year’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series West championship.”

Smith and the No. 16 HASA Toyota team are currently second in the chase for the West Series championship with ten races left on the schedule.

Joining the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Series June 11 will be the NASCAR Super Late Model, NASCAR Charger, NASCAR Bomber, Legend Cars and Bandolero classes. Spectator gates will open at 4 p.m. for this event. General admission parking always is free. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the LVMS ticket office or by calling (800) 644-4444.
