"It was a great feeling to get the first win of the year out of the way," said Bud Kaeding after winning the "Sin City Showdown" at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Campbell, California, USAC West Coast 360 driver passed leader Ryan Bernal with less than two laps remaining. This was the first round of the USAC versus ASCS series and for his win Kaeding collected the $2,500 jackpot.

At the end of the 2011 season Kaeding was entertaining thoughts about changing his number to two, as he had scored numerous second place finishes to close out his campaign. With his 2012 season opening win in Vegas, Kaeding got the monkey off his back, as he out-dueled Bernal to a crowd pleasing photo finish.

As Kaeding stalked the young driver, the red flew on the lap-19, and Kaeding drove around Bernal on the restart to grab the lead. With the white flag waving, Kaeding nearly lost the lead as he got up on two wheels in the first set of turns, nearly opening the door for the hard charging Bernal. The duo had fans on the edge of their seats with a drag race coming out of turn four, but Kaeding held the spot and took home the big check.

"We grabbed the lead on the last lap," added Kaeding. "I entered turn one and two and I biked it up."

After the race a jubilant Kaeding entertained the crowd by spinning impressive donuts into victory lane. "It feels awesome to finally get back in victory lane," said an excited Kaeding. "This car was on a rail in the feature, and rolled around awesome on the top. I almost gave it away on the white flag lap, but luckily we were a little better then Bernal. I can't thank Buster, Ziggy and all my guys for working their tails off."
