The Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway featured a history-making ARCA Menards Series West race on Friday night when the first mother-daughter duo took the track.

Bridget and Sarah Burgess left the mark at the Star Nursery 150. Both drivers were able to finish the race, though they lost to Taylor Gray in the No. 71 DGR Ford. Bridget Burgess got the better of her mother, finishing in 12th place while Sarah finished in 17th.

But the result didn’t matter. It was all about sharing the experience on the racetrack and having some fun as well.

“I’m so happy for her. I hope we do it again,” Bridgett Burgess told NBC Sports after the race. “I hope the next one is a road course because that’s what I love. I’m really happy for my mom and I know it’s tough because she has zero experience on oval racing, so to be in an ARCA car at the Bullring, I’m really impressed. I think would’ve struggled because in modified before ARCA, so I give a lot of props to my mom on that.

Sarah Burgess was just as elated to have competed next to her daughter.
