What won the race: Reigning series champion Tony Toste of Pismo Beach, Calif., captured 2016's West Coast Late Model Shootout opener at Las Vegas Motor Speedway's Dirt Track, earning $3,000 for the victory from his fourth position.

Speedway and first in Vegas. ... Polesitter Don Shaw, who led the first lap, dropped out on lap 21 of 30. ... Toste took the lead from Steve Drake, who led most of the first half of the race. ... Eric Turner spun in turn four for an early caution. ... John Duty brought out a mid-race yellow. ... The Chris Kearns-promoted tour heads to Bakersfield (Calif.) Speedway on Saturday. ... The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series and IMCA modifieds were also in action with Joey Saldana taking the sprint feature and Late Model ace R.C. Whitwell winning the modified main.
