LAS CRUCES, N.M.—It was a wild night at the Southern New Mexico Speedway as the USRA Modifieds raced for $1,000 to win.

The Sun Valley Hardware USRA Stock Cars showed up with 19 cars tonight so they got a full 25 laps in their main event. Ed Engel went to the lead after trouble from some of the starting row and the first three laps were his. But after the checkered dropped, it was last-starting Jaime Torres taking the win ahead of Martin Robinson, Javie Chavez and Turner.

The $1,000-to-win USRA Modified feature saw 24 cars go 30 laps with polesitter Jimmy Ray jumping out to a quick to the lead . When the checkered flag waved, Fito Gallardo cruise across the line with Phillip Houston having a great late run and taking second. Todd Harper was third after running up front all night long.

If you missed the action tonight, then don’t make the same mistake next weekend as we go points racing at the Southern New Mexico Speedway. Gates open at 5:30 and racing starts at 7:45.
