After an almost six-month delay, Peter Biondo and Kyle Seipel bring the Fling brand of bracket racing back to the Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. After COVID-19 forced a complete overhaul of the Fling racing schedule earlier this year, race promotors Peter and Kyle worked diligently with Jeff Foster and the LVMS staff to insure West Coast racers had the opportunity to experience the Fling in 2020.
The result of those efforts is the Fall Fling West presented by RAD Torque Tools. The four-day event provides racers an opportunity to race at a premiere facility with great payouts and a shot at over $20,000 in racer appreciation giveaways! For the Fall Fling West only, gate entries will be allowed with no entry cap. In addition, racers will be allowed to double enter under the special Fall Fling West rules.
The Fall Fling West kicks off on Thursday with the A-1 Performance $100,000 64-Car Shootout. 32 doorcars and 32 dragsters will face off for the $100,000-to-win race. This format guarantees a doorcar vs. dragster final round. In addition to the $100,000 winner’s check, the winner will also receive a Nitrous Supply Nitrous and Intake kit valued at $2,000!
Following the $100,000 Shootout is three days of bracket racing action. For a weekend entry of only $690, racers will compete for $10,000 on Friday and Sunday and $50,000 on Saturday! As always, the entire pursed is guaranteed by Peter and Kyle. First up is the Kidd Performance & Dyno Friday $10K followed by the Panella Race Engines $50K Saturday. Racing concludes on Sunday with the Silver State Refrigeration $10K.
For the Pro class racers, the Fall Fling West offers a chance to race your way into the Super Pro ladder. The Gearwrench Pro Field is an all-run field that runs separate from the Super Pro field until there is one Pro racer remaining. Pro racers are eligible for the same round money, purse, and prizes as Super Pro. In addition to the event purse, the last remaining Pro racer each day will receive a Pro Bonus! The Pro Bonus is $500 on Friday and Sunday and $1,000 on Saturday.
In addition to the huge purse, racer appreciation prize vaults, and free giveaways, the Fall Fling West will also include reaction time awards, bounty rewards, best dialer award, and more. Racers will also have a shot at the Free Fall Fling Reaction Time Challenge. 25 lucky racers will be randomly selected for a chance to win $10,000. Each driver earns $100 cash for any .00X reaction time and $1,000 cash for a .000 reaction. There’s a $10,000 bonus if any racer hits two .000’s in a row!
