Pins will be falling by the dozens on Saturday, Dec. 5, when the Las Vegas Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities hosts the eighth annual Bob Tallman Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Charity Bowling Tournament at the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino.

The popular event is part of a seemingly endless array of rodeo-related activities that will take place during the Wrangler NFR, which runs Dec. 3-12 at the Thomas & Mack Center. ProRodeo Hall of Fame announcer Bob Tallman continues to partner with SCC's Las Vegas Chapter to raise money for children in Southern Nevada.

"This is one of our most unique and popular fundraising events of the year, and Bob Tallman has been a wonderful partner for us," SCC Las Vegas Chapter Director Paulette Anderson said. "People have a great time at the Gold Coast's wonderful bowling alley, there are lots of laughs and fellowship, and it's all for a worthy cause. Events like this help us make a difference in the lives of countless children in Southern Nevada, and it's a great time for everyone."

Rodeo champions and Hall of Famers, entertainment industry stars, local celebrities and rodeo industry leaders will be among the nearly 300 people who take part in the bowling tournament.

The entry fee is $160 per team and $50 for individuals, and each participant will receive two games of bowling, shoe rental, a goodie bag, t-shirt and lunch. Event sponsor packages are also available for $325, and that includes one four-person team and a celebrity bowler, corporate logo placement on lane banners, promotional material in participant goodie bags, a t-shirt and lunch.

The tournament helps those in need in Southern Nevada and benefited more than 45 charities in 2014 alone. This year, Speedway Children's Charities will donate nearly $250,000 to more than 50 area charities.

Tournament sponsors include Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino, Coors Light, Royal Wire and Montana Silversmiths. To register, contact Paulette Anderson at 702.632.8242, or visit HERE for more information.

Cansdale, Miinch shine at West Coast Short Track Championships

Ryan Cansdale and Taylor Miinch now have even more to be thankful for heading into Thanksgiving week.

Cansdale, of Laguna Beach, Calif., had a dominant car down the stretch in the Spears Southwest Tour Series 125-lap feature, taking his first checkered flag of the season nearly two seconds ahead of Bobby Hodges. Derek Thorn was the leader early, but had to visit the pits during the race's first caution at the 50-lap mark before finishing a lap down in 14th.

"I'm at a loss for words right now and don't even know what to say," said Cansdale, a Spears Southwest Tour Series rookie. "That race was crazy, and we played it perfectly. I'm so excited."

Jacob Gomes secured the series' season championship by 39 points ahead of Greg Voigt, who had engine issues and finished a lap down in 15th.

Miinch, of El Cajon, Calif., took the checkered flag in the 75-lap Lucas Oil Modifieds feature, a 30-car race that quickly became a crash-filled affair. Miinch passed two-time Lucas Oil Modifieds season champ Jim Mardis on a lap-51 re-start and never looked back en route to a $4,000 pay day.

"I got into the 12 car (Mardis) on one of the re-starts, and I'm sorry about that," Miinch said of the non-points race. "Overall, I thought we had a better car, and I was just trying to stay patient. Four thousand bucks is cool, and I'll probably just give it to my dad to pay some of the bills."

In the SRL S2 Tour Series feature, race leader Kenny Smith spun in turn two on lap 14, and that opened the door for top qualifier and Bullring regular Ryan Vargas. Vargas grabbed the lead and sped to the 35-lap feature victory, his third win of the year at the LVMS short track.

"We had a car that was phenomenal all day," said Vargas, who won two races in the NASCAR Super Stocks division at The Bullring this season. "I'm just so thankful to have the opportunity to race here this weekend. This is just awesome."

SRL S2 Tour Series season points leader Johnny Butler spun in turn two on the last lap, and it ended up costing him. Dylan Garner slipped in and won the season championship by five points thanks to a second-place finish behind Vargas.

California's Cody Jessop took the lead on lap 13 of the 30-lap USAC HPD Midgets feature and never looked back, grabbing the checkered flag by more than three seconds ahead of Jeff Kelley. Jessop was the 2013 USAC HPD Midget Series Rookie of the Year at The Bullring.

"With all the trouble I've had throughout the year, I'm just so glad to finally pick up my first pavement win of the year," Jessop, of Madera, said. "I saw (Kelley) go up the track, and I knew that, if I didn't make the move then, I'd never make it. I was like, 'Oh, come on. You can do it.' I finally got around him and then put it on cruise control and just tried to stay out front as long as I could."

The night's drama was not reserved for the feature races.

Ryan Partridge's 14.993-second qualifying lap set a Lucas Oil Modifieds record at The Bullring & was the third track record of the day for the class. Linny White (15.038 seconds) and Matthew Hicks (15.046) had also lowered the track record earlier in the same qualifying session.

The annual Bullring Awards Banquet will take place Saturday, Dec. 5, at Sam's Town Hotel and Casino, where the season champions will be honored. Doors open at 6 p.m. Pacific Time, dinner will be served at 7 and the awards will follow at 8. Tickets are $35 per person or $300 for a table of 10 and can be purchased by calling LVMS Ticket Services Coordinator Jessica Canning at 702-632-8059.
