A local woman who was killed in the Las Vegas shooting will be honored at a race this weekend at Kern County Raceway. 

Kelsey Meadows, a substitute teacher at Taft Union High School, was shot and killed at the Route 91 concert in Las Vegas. 

Lance Wilson will honor Meadows, 28, with his number 15 car at Kern County Raceway on Oct. 28.

The car will honor Meadows with her portrait on the hood. The number 15 will also be in pink for breast cancer awareness, according to a post on Kern County Raceway's Facebook page.

Saturday's race will be Wilson's fourth Spears Srl Southwest Tour Series start of the season, and the eighth of his career.

The Facebook post states: 

"Kelsey Meadows is a young lady that we will have on the hood of our car. Kelsey and her family are friends of our team, and we would like to honor her, after she lost her life in Las Vegas. It really means a lot to us, to be able to have her on the hood, and show our support to her family and friends, who have had to endure so much emotional pain through this heartbreaking act."

The Spears Srl Southwest Race is from 6 to 10 p.m. on Saturday.
