You could feel the heat last night at the El Paso Speedway Park for the Fourth of July races. Burning rubber on the track were the USRA Stock Cars and USRA Modifieds.

The USRA Stock Cars laid down on the accelerator for the chance to win a $500 bounty. Any driver who could win beating out Jon McDaniel and Justin Lasiter would walk away with the bounty. If McDaniel or Lasiter won they would get an extra $100 on top of their winnings.

At the start Gil Almanza took the lead, but not for long. Jason Ziehl pulled ahead of Almanza with Justin Lasiter pulling into second. After a yellow with 17 laps to go Lasiter pulled ahead of Ziehl and laid down on the gas. The restart is all Lasiter needed and he was able to put a full turn between himself and the other drivers. Another yellow with nine laps to go brought the pack back nose to tail.

Lasiter held onto his lead but Troy Wells was able to get up close and personal with Lasiter for a few laps. Wells was not quite fast enough to pass Lasiter and steal the bounty, leaving Lasiter to get a total $350 in winnings.

Last up the USRA Modifieds went four wide to celebrate Independence Day before tearing up the track. In the opening lap Royal Jones and Austin Adams went door to door with Fito Gallardo hot on their tracks. Jones was able to pull into the lead but Adams and Gallardo were not letting up on the gas. Gallardo passed Adams four laps into the race gaining on Jones. Gallardo was trying every turn to get around Jones, but Jones was not going to let him get a lead on him. Jones maintained his lead from white to checkered flag.

Next week you won’t want to miss the return of the ASCS Winged Sprint cars, USRA Stock Cars, USRA B-Mods and the Hornets.
