2006 Labor Day 200 ASA Late Model race at ELKO

Here is the broadcast of the Labor Day 200 at Elko Speedway back in 2006.  This race features great drivers including:  Jacob Goede, Jonathan Eilen, Dean Cornelius, Chad Wood, Tim Schendel, Landon Cassill and Kelly Bires.

This was the very first race that Dean Reller and Jason Searcy broadcast at Elko Speedway, it also was the first event that we broadcast on KRWC radio.  It was a rainy day, which delayed the race program, but the weather cleared in time for a great race that night.

Here are the official race results

Just before the main event we also broadcast the Great North Legends Regional Qualifier race.  Many of the big names of the era raced in this event including:  Tyler Sjoman, Jaycen Brockhouse, Dirk Henry, Patrick Brejcha, Gary Mueller, Tom Silver, Doug Petty, Todd Tracy, Scott Brandt, Robbie Carter, Mike Tuma, Jon Lewerer, Brian Miles, Mark Skjerven etc.

Here is the link to that Great North Legends race, we were not planning on broadcasting this race, but we are glad we did!
