The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Hosts the Las Vegas Bracket Nationals
The 2007 Las Vegas Bracket Nationals have gone away with the Thanksgiving leftovers, but the holiday race was a blast for K&N Engineering Project Manger and Super Pro driver Jonathan Fiello.

Teams from 20 states and two Canadian provinces converged on the four-day Thanksgiving weekend race at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. “Competition was tough,” said Fiello. “There were at least 180 cars.”
Fiello owns a 2003 undercover dragster with a 635 cubic inch big block Chevrolet with K&N Engineering products. It is fuel injected on alcohol and runs about 1200 horsepower.
For the Bracket Nationals, he raced Carl Cannavo’s 2007 Yancer Dragster 598 cubic inch big block Chevrolet. “Carl is my good friend and we make a good team,” said Fiello. “He does the set up for the race and I do the driving.”
Competitors had to go nine rounds for a final opportunity to win $5,000. Fiello did well on Thursday and lost in the 6th round. “On Friday, I lost in the 3rd round and Saturday I lost in the 6th round,” he said. “On Sunday we blew a head gasket in the motor. Overall, it was a blast.”
The bracket nationals put a lot of wear and tear on the race vehicles. “We used K&N oil filter (
) and a K&N air filter on Carl’s car,” said Fiello. “The K&N air filter keeps the dirt and particles from the track out of the engine and increases horsepower. The oil filter meets all our demands as racers. The heavy duty construction and sturdy one-inch wrench nut make oil filter removal quick and easy. The K&N oil filter also keeps our motor clean.”
Fiello did not participate in the $45,000 Ultimate Gambler. “The car was struggling too much for us to spend the $1,000 entry fee,” he said. “Kyle Seipel defeated K&N racer Peter Biondo to claim the big money.” However, Biondo won the Madcap Ultimate Engine Giveaway Presented by Mike’s Transmissions.
The next race for Fiello will be at Las Vegas in late January. He will start testing his own car there in the NHRA Top Comp Class.
