If you are missing the thrill of the track since Utah’s racing season wound down, there’s still a chance to see some of the state’s best drivers compete in Las Vegas. 

The Riskon360! Open Wheel Showdown takes place December 1st & 2nd. It will be run on the 3/8-mile Bullring asphalt oval at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway complex. Utah Winged Sprint Car drivers Anthony Quintana (#02), Jarrett Burdett (#36J), Monty Bergener (#12B), Natalie Waters (#1), and Ryan Burdett (#36) are ready to race! They will join many of the nation’s best, driving some of the nation’s most furious cars, and vying for a record $50,000 winner’s purse. 

Midgets and Speed Tour Supermodifieds are also part of the showdown, with winners’ purses of $10,000 and $5000, respectively. Bryan Shafer’s BSR Racing, based in St. George, will run multiple Supermodifieds, in addition to a Winged Sprint Car. Most will be operated by out-of-state drivers, although Bryan will drive one himself. Dave Adamson, also from St. George, will be another Supermodified competitor.
