Recap of June 13
Friday the 13th…a full moon…and the racing was great and safe and very close. Part one of a two night show went like this: The modified feature had Aaron Spangler leading for 14 laps with Zane Devilbiss racing side by side with him for five laps before Devilbiss finally got by on lap 14. Devilbiss went on to take the feature win with Spangler 2nd and Regan Tafoya 3rd after having to restart in the back early in the race. In fourth was Allen Bradley followed by Wayne Soares. One caution late in the race made for a fast race. The rest of the finishing order was: Robbie Chiles, Ryan Spangler, Jeremy Farley, Shane Devilbiss, Trevor Combs, Aaron Wheeler, and David Davis. Heat race winners in the modifieds were: Aaron Spangler and Zane Devilbiss.
In the Sport modified 20 lap feature 15 cars took the green and ran a caution free race. Juanita Faddis was in front for the first 6 laps before Joey Klemish in his Mopar car took over. Joey never looked back as he went on to a commanding win. The race for 2nd through 7th was back and forth between 6 cars. When the dust settled, Julie Boettler finished 2nd with Ryan Henley next. In fourth was Juanita Faddis with Rex Higgins 5th. Sixth on back were: Brian Carey, Jordan Eddleman, Luke McCormick, JC Yates, Glenn Spangler, Bub Hughs, RL Henley, Roger Cordary, Darrell Cordary and Dillon Terry. The heat race winners in the sport modifieds were: Juanita Faddis, Jordan Eddleman and Rex Higgins.
The stock car feature of 20 laps turned in another caution free race with Ron Brewer leading the first several laps until Stephan Carey eased on by to take the lead and the win. The race for 2nd was a close one with Brewer and Kenny Hendershot battling it out. Brewer held on for the 2nd with Kenny in 3rd–his worst finish of the year at two tracks. In fourth was Jeramey Bradley, and Frankie Hendershot in fifth. Sixth on back were: Richard Trujillo, Skylar Heath, Josh Turnbull, Larry Bradley, Traci Jennings and Scott Livingston. Heat race winners in the stock cars were: Kenny Hendershot and Stephan Carey.
The sport compacts saw a few cars show with Austin Maxwell winning the feature and the heat race. Second in the feature was Josh Smith with RaNai Toler exiting early after hitting the wall. Ranai was ok.
The hobby stock feature saw repeat, repeat, repeat winner Freddie Brooks take the checkers. Early competition was Jason Duggins in Randy Dorsett’s car. Duggins was in front early but spun out of contention. Taking 2nd was Patricia Phillips with Kelly Klemm in 3rd and Jason Duggins was fourth. Paul Dorsett was fifth with Jason Hockinhull, Luke Klemm and Jessica Radojits rounding out the finishing order. Luke Klemm and Freddie Brooks were the heat race winners.
First night intermission the fans saw the first of many Wheelbarrow races. We pulled people out of the stands and they teamed up to run one lap around the Kart track for a chance to win $50 sponsored by Matrix Title Loans in Farmington. The winners were Ben Wallace and Robert Cattagaia.
The second night of racing at Aztec Speedway this weekend is in the books. For the most part all of the racing was the usual great stuff you expect at Aztec. Maybe an exception or two popped up. In the Modified feature Jeremy Farley jumped out to the front for four laps until a hard charging Regan Tafoya came up to take over the lead. Last night’s winner eased past the Farley car and started a challenge for the lead that culminated with another side by side dual for several laps. On lap 16, Zane Devilbiss put the #18 in front with a move to the bottom of turn one and completing the pass on Tafoya down the backstretch. The only caution came out on lap 19 that set up a one lap shootout for the win. Devilbiss held off Tafoya for his 2nd win of the weekend with Mark Rodgers a close 3rd and Aaron Spangler 4th. Spangler was boxed in on the final lap or he might have been in the hunt for the win. Finishing 5th was Shane Devilbiss. The rest of the field in order were: Robbie Chiles, Allen Bradley, Ryan Spangler, Wayne Soares, Trevor Combs, Jeremy Farley, Aaron Wheeler, and David Davis. Heat race winners were: Mark Rodgers, Zane Devilbiss and Regan Tafoya.
The 20 lap sport modified feature had 15 cars take the green. Jordan Eddleman jumped out front for 3 laps until the Mopar car of Joey Klemish came roaring by on the outside. Klemish and Eddleman then pulled away from the pack with Eddleman trying over and over to take the lead back but to no avail. Klemish went on make a clean sweep of the weekend. Eddleman held off challengers for the last three laps to keep 2nd spot. In third was Julie Boettler with Rex Higgins up to 4th and Ryan Henley fifth. Sixth on down were: Brian Carey, Glenn Spangler, RL Henley, Luke McCormick, Killian Carey, Juanita Faddis, Roger Cordary, Darrell Cordary, Bub Hughes and JC Yates. Heat race winners were: RL Henley, Julie Boettler and Rex Higgins.
The Stock car feature of 20 laps saw Kenny Hendershot back in his familiar spot, Victory Circle. Hendershot pushed his #7 past Richard Trujillo on lap 3 and never looked back until he noticed last night’s winner in his mirror, Stephan Carey. Carey was close but just couldn’t make the pass. After Kenny Hendershot and Stephan Carey, Larry Bradley took 3rd with Frankie Hendershot 4th and Richard Trujillo 5th. Rounding out the field was Skyler Heath, Ron Brewer, Josh Turnbull, Scott Livingston, Travis Southerlin, Michael Farley and Jeramey Bradley. Jeramey had a rough night with a few altercations with other cars. Heat race winners were: Larry Bradley, Kenny Hendershot and Stephan Carey.
The Hobby feature took about an hour which included a 30 minute red flag due to the ambulance being summoned to the pits for a medical emergency. Several cautions were out for the hobby feature with a familiar face back in front. Randy Dorsett took the win with Freddie Brooks 2nd and Luke Klemm next in 3rd. Fourth went to Jessica Radojits forllowed by Paul Dorsett and Jordan Hockinhull. Heat race winners were: Paul Dorsett and Freddie Brooks.
The sport compacts had only three cars with one of them not making the call for the feature. Two cars ran 8 laps with Ranai Toler taking the win and Austin Maxwell in 2nd. Ranai also won the heat race.
Intermission on night two brought out the Suitcase Race with the Sportmod division being represented.
The contestants were going for the $50 prize from Carland in Farmington. The contestants were Darell Cordary, Kilian Carey, and Damen Lopez. From the start it was Damen that proved he was faster in the car and at putting on womens clothing than the other two men. Damen was first across the finish line, taking home the $50 from Carland.

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.
