Jaime Torres won the Holley USRA Stock Car feature.

The Holley USRA Stock Cars and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods supplied the action Saturday, July 8, on a beautiful night at the Southern New Mexico Speedway.

Twelve Holley USRA Stock Cars checked in for battle calling for a 15-lap main event. Troy Miller and Kenny McCoy kicked the show off with McCoy quickly jumping to the lead. McCoy would lead the opening go around until a caution flew for Danny Gross on lap two.

Jason Josselyn would take the lead on the restart. Josselyn had an outstanding race car after dominating his heat race and doing a solid job in the main leading with a caution and holding off the field until the No. 74 lost power steering.

Jaime Torres would take the lead and run on lap seven. Donovan Flores would jump to second trying to catch Torres, but the No. 44jt was very good tonight and would win yet another one at the Southern New Mexico Speedway with the Holley USRA Stock Cars.

Twenty-six Out-Pace USRA B-Mods checked in for battle. The 25-lap main event started off rough with four cautions out and only four laps completed.

After the caution era we got to racing. John Carney Sr. led the way with Dickie Gorham and Melissa Gorham battling for second. A caution would then fly again on lap six, but it didn't stop Carney as he would defend the lead.

Jimmy Ray and Jake Gallardo slowly worked their way into the top five. Dickie Gorham then got to the lead five laps after the restart until a caution flew again and forcing officials to cut laps with drivers approaching their 25-minute time limit.

With five to go now on the restart Dickie Gorham and Ray battled side by side for the lead. Dickie Gorham would then get loose out of coroner number four and that did it as it allowed the No. 9 of Ray to win the main event.
