Doss Set For Bullring Double Duty

LAS VEGAS — Young California driver Jeremy Doss annually comes to the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to hit the jackpot. 

Doss, the 24-year-old racer lists the popular Bullring short track as one of his favorite ovals in the West Coast and there is an obvious reason. Doss wins big races in Las Vegas. 

Now, the seven-time Spears SRL series point champion returns to the Bullring in search of another big payout in the annual Sigma Performance Services West Coast Short Track Championships set for Nov. 4-6 when Doss competes in the pro late model and modified classes. 

Doss, already crowned the point champion in the SRL Pro Late Model and modified series in West Coast tour action, is no stranger to the Bullring’s winner’s circle dating back to 2014 when, at age 17, he captured the Open Comp 150 super late model race. 

“The Bullring is one of my favorite tracks,” said Doss, the 2019 Kulwicki Cup Driver Development Program national champion. “Of course, I’ve had a lot of success at that track too. But the Bullring always has had great racing. I’ve won some events on the last lap and I’ve lost some there on the last lap. There are always some races at the Bullring that come right down the white-flag lap. I’m sure it’s fun for the fans, too.”

Doss, whose father, Mike, was a successful West Coast stock car driver, began his racing career at age seven in the Outlaw Dirt Kart series and vaulted to the Legend Car category at age 11. But, by age 13, Doss was behind the wheel of a super late model and his successful rise in racing continued. 

“Jumping into the late models was a big move,” said Doss. “My dad was a good late model racer and he had plenty of knowledge of the cars and how to race them. That was a big advantage for a teenager then. I was able to gain experience and then compete in the late models and the modifieds. The competition was strong, and I had to develop my skills to race with the top guys.”

But Jeremy quickly showed his talents by traveling through the West Coast and even to the East Coast to compete against the best short-track drivers in the nation. 

Teaming with S & S Sports Enterprises, Doss began to produce feature wins in rapid succession as well as series championships. And that string continued this year with nine of 11 Spears SRL Pro Late Model series main event wins and seven of nine Spear SRL Modified feature victories. 

“It’s been a great season with wins and championships here on the West Coast,” said Doss. “Now, we have the big event in Las Vegas — $10,000 to win in the pro late models and $5,000 in the modifieds – and then the big national race, the Snowball Derby down in Florida in December. I’m very excited about both of those races. Of course, the first one at the Bullring is next up and I can’t wait to get back at that track. It’s been a great track for me over the years.”

But Doss knows that the competition level on Nov. 5-6 at the Bullring will be high as he attempts to add to his impressive 2021 win total. 

“The West Coast Short Track event at the Bullring is always tough,” Doss explained. “They get drivers and teams from all of over the western states and you have to be on your game to win that weekend. I’ve had some good runs there and I hope to continue the success this time.”
