ACDelco Las Vegas NHRA Nationals
Bernstein looking for victory No. 4 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
Bernstein is casting an optimistic eye toward the ACDelco Las Vegas Nationals Oct. 26-28, hoping that might be the site of his 70th victory. After all, he won the first race at The Strip in 2000 and followed it with a defending victory in 2001. He won the ACDelco fall race in 2003 the final year of his tenure at the wheel of the Budweiser/Lucas Oil Top Fuel car.
Bernstein returned to action this season driving the Monster Energy/Lucas Oil Funny Car. He has finished runner-up twice, but is looking for that elusive milestone victory.
“We got off to a slower start than I would have liked,” said Bernstein, “but at the same time it’s rewarding to see the progress made by (crew chief) Jimmy Walsh and the team.

Competition in the Funny Car field is fierce and it’s a battle for every qualifying position and round win.
“We suffered a bit of a setback after the collision with John Force in

“Our 2007 season would look really good with a trophy to top the year.”
