Challenging economic times have affected scheduling for this season’s NASCAR All-American Series at the Bullring and semi-pro drag racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The Wicked HP E.T. Bracket Series opens this weekend with back-to-back days of racing to alleviate travel expenses for drag-racing teams traveling from nearby states.

The E.T. Bracket series opens at 4 p.m. Saturday and will feature a car cruise and pre-1972 display of cars, street rods and custom motorcycles. Racing resumes at 9 a.m. Sunday.
