LAS CRUCES, N.M.—It was a fast and furious night at the races here at the Southern New Mexico Speedway as a bunch of rain in the last three days made for a tricky track.

The Holley USRA Stock Cars were on track first tonight for 20 laps and Donovan Flores wasted only four laps to go to the lead in this one.

Lloyd Turner skyrocketed from the back of the pack into second with 14 laps to go, and on a charge he went.

Flores pulled from the pack with four laps to go and Jaime Torres roared into second over Turner with one to go.

Flores took the No. 07 to victory lane again with Torres second and Turner third.

The Out-Pace USRA B-Mod 20-lap main event got kicked off with a bang as only one lap into the race the front cars got together and caused a major chain reaction.

Christy Georges-Barnett, who started in the back, got the short end of the stick, going straight into the front stretch wall and up and over and around. She unhurt but her car was junked.

After a full restart, three laps in and Jimmy Ray was all the way into second and found the perfect groove on an unforgiving track.

Ray wasted no more time and shot into turn one like a speeding bullet for the lead.

John Carney Sr. finally got into second, but not in time to get the job done as Ray won another main event at Southern New Mexico Speedway.

Carney was second after a late charge to the leaders.

Not many race nights left at the Southern New Mexico Speedway, so if you missed tonight then don’t do the same thing next Saturday. Gates open at 5:30 with racing at 7:45. Don’t be late.
