LAS VEGAS – The half-mile dirt track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will present its premier event – the 12th annual Duel in the Desert – on Nov. 12-14. The Duel in the Desert has become one of the biggest IMCA Modified events in the country. Last year, the event attracted a record field of 218 IMCA Modifieds – 30 more than the previous record set in 2007. Racers from 17 states and four Canadian provinces traveled to LVMS' half-mile dirt oval for the autumn classic and fans in attendance were treated to a bonus as the record number of entries caused officials to expand Thursday's schedule from 16 qualifying heats to 20. David Murray of Oberlin, Kans., topped the stellar field and collected the $5,000 winner’s check.

The 2009 edition of the Duel in the Desert should attract even more entries as it will offer a record $7,777 to the winner of Saturday night’s A-Feature.

The action-packed weekend also will include Bombers, Legends Cars and IMCA Stock Cars.

Tickets may be purchased by calling the LVMS ticket office at (702) 644-4444 or online at www.LVMS.com.

Entry blanks and rules may be obtained by calling the dirt track’s office at (702) 632-8213 or by e-mailing Mysti Den Hoed at mdenhoed@lvms.com. IMCA Modified teams may save $75 if they pre-enter by Nov. 2.
