The Southern New Mexico Speedway was rocking with 117 cars in house Saturday night for Round 2 of the inaugural Short Track Shootout presented by S&S Fishing & Rental, G3 Fitness, Mesilla Valley Transportation, Barnett Harley-Davidson and Rancho Milagro.

Colorado, New Mexico and Texas were represented in tonight's Holley USRA Stock Car main event, and Donovan Flores redeemed himself after a heartbreaking defeat Friday night. It was an Allen Bradley show early until he and Cortez, Colo., driver Tony Hill got into it out of turn 2 under caution and got sent to the back. Flores inherited the lead on lap 7 and led the rest of the way with two cautions before the finish—one which forced a green-white-checkered finish—as he claimed the $500 winner's check.

Johnny Scott put on a clinic in the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod main event behind the wheel of Rick Hall's No, X15 machine. Twenty-five drivers came out to battle for $500 to win. It was a rough start as the field kicked off their main event with two straight yellow flags. Gregory Gorham got to the lead early and led two laps before Scott took to lead. There was no looking back as he had to deal with five cautions, but didn't effect him.

Scoot dominated the tough USRA Modified field for the $4,000 payday Saturday night. Thirty-six USRA Modifieds checked in representing New Mexico, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Arizona and Colorado. A caution-free but exciting 30-lap main event had the environment fired up as Scott maneuvered ahead of Jake Gallardo through 17 lapped cars for a flag-to-flag victory in round 2 of the Short Track Shootout.

The Short Track Shootout finale takes place Sunday with gates opening at 10 a.m. and racing at high noon. Spectator general admission is just $15 and kids ages 10 and under get in for free. Family Packs are also available for $35. Pit passes are $35.

USRA Modifieds race for $5,000 to win while Holley USRA Stock Cars and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods are both going for a $1,000 top prize. Entry fees are $50 for USRA Modifieds and $25 for Holley USRA Stock Cars or Out-Pace USRA B-Mods. Transponders and RACEceivers are required for all classes.
