EL PASO, Texas -- It was a crazy night at El Paso Speedway Park on Friday night.

With rains and wind delaying the show, the show went on and we appreciate our loyal fans and drivers for sticking with us through it to get a night of racing in.

Heat race action got started much later than we would have liked with the USRA HotMods. Heat 1 went to Rob Madrid, heat 2 went to Austin Adams and heat 3 went to Jonathan Barcena.

The main event, however, would prove to be quite a race.

Losing two strong competitors in Javier Zapien Jr. and Donovan Flores to the wall in turn 4, it would be last year’s USRA HotMod track champion Pat Carney taking home the win after an end-of-race surge to edge out Jonathan Barcena.

Barcena was undeniably one of the fastest cars out there last night and is proving to be a force in the USRA HotMod class.

In USRA Stock Car racing, where it appears the rivalries are forming, it was Frank Ray Jr. taking heat 1, Jerrad Warhurst taking heat 2 and Troy Wells taking heat 3.

The best way to describe the main event was tires ... if they weren't coming off the cars prior the race or in turn 1, they were getting cut.

Losing Colby Ellis and teammate Jerrad Warhurst to tires just falling off, we also saw the leader of the race, Ray, leave the track with a cut tire and Steve Jones, who definitely was headed in the right direction for the win, losing a tire.

But in the end, with the crowd’s hands up in the air and on their feet,, it was Wells taking the win with Bryan Wells very close behind.
