LAS CRUCES, N.M.—The Holley USRA Stock Cars and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods invaded the Southern New Mexico Speedway again Saturday night and raced wide open for the big crowd in attendance.

Holley USRA Stock Cars would roll the track tonight first, and a dull 20 lap main event was set. The 11 of Cliff Everage would lead the opening lap but it was the 10 of Bryan Bennett stealing the show to lead lap 4 out of turn 4. The 0 of Lloyd Turner would be all over him with 17 to go and those two would make it fun for the rest of this one. After 5 laps the 07 of Donovan Flores was closing in from third and looking to make it a three-way battle for the lead. Turner would drive under the 10 with 12 to go but nothing would stick and the 0 would fall back from the lead which opened the door for the 07 of Flores to come zooming in. Only 7 complete and the 0 giving it another shot at the line. Lloyd Turner darting to the front! The 0 was hooked up on the low line tonight. With 8 to go the first caution would fly in this one just as the 21z of Robinson was looking to shoot into second. The 0 will now lead the 10 and 07 back to green with 21z there as well. Flores shooting his 07 into second on the restart. With 15 complete and 5 to go the 0 and the 07 where pulling from the field but the 21z fighting off the 44JT for 3rd. Flores would try a slide job in turn 1 but Turner with a solid low line dig and Turner leads again! Turner would never look back after that point and all the way down to the wire the 0 would put on a clinic. Lloyd Turner would fight off a hard charging, stacked field to win this one. The 07 of Donovan Flores got a little high on the last lap and second will have to do. The 21z of Martin Robinson drives all the way into third for yet another top 3 finish.

Out-Pace USRA B-Mods would go 25 laps tonight but a few cautions would cut the laps down before any real fun could actually begin. The 0H of Shane Helton would lead lap 1 but the 07 of Donovan Flores was on a charge to the front and not to be denied. After 5 cautions with 2 laps complete the officials would rule and take 5 laps off the board. It was 17 to with 2 complete and the 07 would lead the 0 and 82 back racing. Finally getting some laps complete and it’s the 3H of Noah Hollingshead trying to make a charge at the leaders now. With 14 to go another caution would wave but the 93 of Gorham was already into third! Gorham on a hard drive tonight. With 10 to go the 07 was pulling away again as the 93 and 0H where battling hard. Shane Helton would get loose in turn 2 and the 93 would go by but only 5 to go and no time for the 93 to chase down the 07 tonight. Donovan Flores would make it look easy tonight as the last 5 went smooth as butter and the 07 wins it by a quarter mile. The 93 of Gregory Gorham bringing it home in second and the 9 of Jammin Jimmy Ray with a rounded out third place.

If you missed tonight then you missed out and you better not make the same mistake next weekend as we go racing once again! Gates open at 5:30 with racing at 7:45. Don’t be late!
