Brian Roode from Brooks found it a bit of an education, and different from what he sees here.
"The track was smooth, but it was only a one-lane track, follow the leader," he told Drum FM. "The way they had it so smooth and stuff it was only taking rubber at the bottom where everyone ran. You couldn't really pass, so whoever started out front pretty much stayed out front."
"I was (in) the very first heat race of the whole thing," he added. "When we went to the green, I got out front, but when we got to the first corner I was on the high line and it wouldn't stick, so I went back to 4th or 5th and then started coming up. I started to pass guys and when I went by buddy on the outside, he took me to the wall."
Roode did not finish his race, but he and the other local racers got a real education of what stock car racing south of the border is like.
"At the practice, we had over 100 Sports Mods and after practice night they lost three or four of them because they crashed," he recalled. "We ended up with 96 or 97 and 206 A-Mods."
The other area drivers to visit Vegas included Airdrie's Mike Reneau, Roger Bonneville of Calgary, Kirby Zielinski of Bluffton and Ross Statham of Redcliff.
