Aaron Spangler wins another IMCA modified feature at Aztec Speedway, May 7, 2011
Aaron Spangler eased his #16 IMCA modified in front of JJ Harpole midway in a 25 lap feature at Aztec Speedway. Regan Tafoya gave chase for a few laps in his Rimco Special #24 but relinquished 2nd to a hard charging Porter Smith. Smith moved the Smith Ranch #7 between Toafoya and Harpole and then set his sights on Spangler. Smith tried to take the win but had to settle for 2nd as Aaron Spangler would not be denied his first feature win of 2011 at Aztec. Tafoya was a close 3rd with Harpole 4th and Matt Higgins 5th. Jason Keeler put his #73 in front early but was shuffled back to 6th at the end. During a restart after a caution, Bill Dowdy was clipped by another car and sent up the track in turn one. He carried the #110 of Tyrone Yazzie with him to the wall. Both drivers were ok but Yazzie’s car appeared to be a total loss. Dowdy also had some heavy damage. Aaron Spangler just keeps adding wins to the IMCA modified record book. He is well over 100 career wins. In a side note: Camron Spangler, Aaron’s son, won his quarter midget feature earlier in the evening.
In the IMCA sport modified feature, 20 cars were set to take the green but two cars failed to make the call. Eighteen took the green with Ryan Henley leading for a couple until Jordan Eddleman took over till lap nine. Julie Boettler put her #97 in front followed by Zach Rouse. These two traded the lead three different times in the next six laps. On lap 15, Rouse finally pulled in front as Boettler slipped in turn two. Zach Hamilton followed Rouse for 2nd spot. They ran this way till the white flag came out with Boettler spinning out going into turn one. The yellow and checker waved giving the win to Zach Rouse. Zach Hamilton had to settle for 2nd, Jordan Eddleman 3rd, Anthony “Ace” Eaverson 4th and Brandon Tenski 5th.
The IMCA stock car 25 lap feature had 19 cars set to go. Danny Stevenson could not get his car going and was a DNS. Eighteen cars did take the green and ran three and four wide for 19 laps with Shane Devilbiss leading the way until the yellow flag flew for a three car get together of turn two. The last six laps saw Devilbiss hanging on for a three car photo finish. In second by .021 seconds was Allen Bradley and 3rd was Rex Higgins by a wee bit more than that. Fourth went to Larry Bradley and a strong 5th was Steffan Carey. Carey started this race in last place. Shane Devilbiss takes his first win this year in the black #43.
The hobby stock feature saw five different leaders before Dennis Spencer put his #07 in front to stay. Randy Dorsett was 2nd with Kevin Southerlin next followed by Jeremy Bradley and RaNai Toler.
The mini stocks fielded only four cars tonight. Breezy Hopper took the win over Amanda Hamilton, Ross Whipple and Jeannie Henley. Jeannie popped a radiator and spun.
The first powder puff race was held this year with eight ladies taking a stock car around the track for 10 laps. Maygen Carey drove her husband’s #3 to an easy win as she lapped all but the 2nd place car. We may have found a relief driver for Steffan. In second was Becky Higgins driving her husband’s #47. Third went to Caley Lapaire in Michael Higgin’s #27. All clean racing with no spins, crashes or close calls.
Aztec Speedway will take next weekend off but will return to racing on May 21st featuring the NMMRA non wing sprint cars.

The 2010 National Champ wins at Aztec Speedway
Zane Devilbiss notched his 2nd win this year at Aztec Speedway in the IMCA modified feature. Devilbiss put his Pink Panther #18 in front on lap seven and cruised to a 2.1 second win over his nearest competitor. Devilbiss dodged an early bullet when his car jumped the wheel of another car. “Zippy” barely slowed down. Finishing 2nd was Matthew Higgins in his Bloomfield Pawn #74. Finishing in 3rd for the second week in a row was Danny Bradford, fourth went to Kevin Faddis and rounding out the top five was JJ Harpole. Last weeks’ Wild West Modified Tour winner, Porter Smith, finished out of the top five in seventh.In other racing: The IMCA sport modifieds had 18 cars take the green in their 25 lapper. Three time winner, Zach Rouse, looked as though he would have to settle for 2nd as Zach Hamilton had his Hot Chassis #14 in the lead with one lap to go. But as Hamilton slipped high on the exit of turn 2, Rouse charged underneath and went on to win, leading only 3/4 of a lap. Julie Boettler was 3rd with Shane Simonton running a strong 4th. In fifth was Tre Harpole for his second top five this season.
The IMCA stock cars had 17 cars taking the green. A family gathering took place up front as Kenny Hendershot jumped in front about lap six. His brother Frankie Hendershot moved his car into 2nd a few laps later and the pair led everybody to the checkers. In third was Rex Higgins, Allen Bradley next and fifth went to Travis Southerlin. Southerlin was later DQd and this placed Danny Stevenson in 5th.
In the hobby feature, Jerrett Guilory showed to be the strong suit as he led the pack to the winner’s circle. In second was Roger Nixon followed by Dennis Spencer, Kevin Southerlin and Randy Dorsett.
The mini sprints traveled to Aztec this week from the Albuquerque area. The easy winner was Kenny Wheeler with Mike Wheeler 2nd and Cody Dons third. Finishing fourth was Chris Perea and fifth..James Hatch.
Everyone was treated to great racing as usual at Aztec Speedway. Our ongoing construction should be finished by next Saturday’s races.
