Fans filed in on a beautiful Sunday night edition at the Southern New Mexico Speedway for night two of the Labor Day Fling.The Holley USRA Stock Cars and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods  gave the fans a good night of racing to end the Labor Day Weekend.

The Out-Pace USRA B-Mods got rained out two weeks ago due to Mother Nature pouring down on the race track making it unable to race. The same line-up stood and it was two weeks ago. John Carney Sr. shared the front row with Israel Ortega. At the green, Carney led the main with a caution flying on lap five. On the restart, Carney led until Fito Gallardo challenged for the lead. Gallardo ran away by a half-track to win the make-up feature.

Race track conditions started to go away as it was a top line race track for the Holley USRA Stock Cars. Jake Gallardo started on the pole with Jaime Torres on the outside. Gallardo would take off, not being touched, while Jimmy Ray and Torres battled for the runner-up position. Donovan Flores started last and found himself fourth, but the leaders were far gone. A caution flew on lap 11. On the restart, Flores got to third and battled Ray, but Gallardo just ran away and picked up the main event win.

The Out-Pace USRA B-Mods ended the night with a topless $1,000-to-win main event. Mike Rosales and Jake Gallardo started on the front row and at the green it was Gallardo taking off with it. Fito Gallardo jumped to second followed by Josh Cain. Things were single-file as the track started to rubber down. Jake Gallardo broke into a big lead until lapped traffic came into play on lap 10. Fito Gallardo closed in on him, but Jake Gallardo didn't waste any time as he lapped 11 cars until a caution flew on lap 17. On the restart, Bumper Jones managed his way to second after starting 20th. Jake Gallardo and Jones were equal in speed, but with no cautions Jake Gallardo ended up leading it from flag to flag to win the main event.
