Jared Jones Collects 2 Wins & R/U at LVMS Bracket Nationals

LAS VEGASThe Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway hosted the 17th Annual Las Vegas Bracket Nationals over the Thanksgiving weekend.  The four-day big dollar bracket race featured daily racing action in Super Pro, Pro, and Sportsman classes.  Racers from all over the western states competed for $5,000 to win each day in Super Pro and $2,000 in Pro.  While most of the Thanksgiving weekend races across the country dealt with bad weather and scheduling issues, The Strip enjoyed a full weekend of bracket racing.

Although a number of racers made multiple final rounds, the star of the weekend was Sportsman racer Jared Jones in his beautiful red ’67 Camaro.  Jones kicked off the weekend with a runner-up on Thursday, then followed it up with a win on Friday, and finished the weekend by winning Sportsman for the second time in three days on Sunday.  To recap, Jones made three finals and collected two wins in four days of racing.

Other top performers included James Warden who swept the racing action on Saturday by winning both the Super Pro final along with winning the Gambler’s race.  Saturday’s Sportsman winner Jacob Evans drove his ’79 LUV truck to back-to-back final rounds taking runner-up honors on Sunday to event MVP Jared Jones.  And last, Seth Polvadore drove his Fairmont to back-to-back final rounds on Saturday and Sunday collecting a runner-up on Saturday and a win on Sunday.
