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.
Aztec, New Mexico: What a difference a week makes! No big wind and warm compared to last week’s deep freeze. And what a night for Danny Bradford in his #111. Bradford led the last seven laps of the 25 lap IMCA modified feature and registered his first win in some time at Aztec. Matthew Higgins looked like he was going to take an easy win after leading the first 15 laps. But a yellow for a spin bunched everyone up and Regan Tafoya jumped into the lead on the restart followed by Bradford. Tafoya managed only a couple of laps in front before Bradford made the final pass. The margin of victory was .704 seconds over Tafoya. In 3rd was Aaron Spangler of Dove Creek, Co. Fourth went to Matthew Higgins and Porter Smith rounded out the top five. Higgins actually held off challenges from four different drivers but the lap 15 restart relegated him to fourth. Defending National IMCA modified champion, Zane Devilbiss, was running 6th most of the race but spun on the last lap to end up 12th. These drivers and about 45 more will be on hand next weekend for the two night Wild West Tour’s first action of the 2011 season.
The IMCA sport modified 25 lapper saw 19 cars take the green. Wayne Soares in his #26 sporty took the lead from the pole and led every lap for his first win this year. Zach Hamilton was closing fast but ran out of laps and settled for 2nd. Zach Rouse has three wins this year but had to settle for 3rd in this one. Fourth went to Brandon Tenski and fifth to Randy Eitel. The race saw a couple of cautions early with one being thrown for a five car pile up.
The IMCA stock cars fielded 18 cars. The 19th car of Stephen Carey was a DNS due to a broken camshaft. As usual, the stock car drivers put on a great race with three and four wide racing. Samuel Sansoni led for the first couple of laps, then Arlen Cochran showed some strength and led six laps. On lap 8, Shane (that’s Shane) Devilbiss put his #43 out front by running the extreme high side of the track. He led until lap 19 when a challenge from Danny Stevenson out of turn 2 ended with both cars in the wall. Shane was out as Stevenson continued at the back of the pack. Rex Higgins was on the move in 3rd when the crash occured. Rex graciously accepted the lead and the checkers six laps later. That’s two in a row for the #47 of Higgins.
The mini stocks came out for a fifteen lap feature that saw a first time winner. Breezy Hopper took her #37 mustang to the front and led all 15 laps to notch that first feature win. Defending champ, Amanda Hamilton, took 2nd with Ross Whipple 3rd followed by William Mallard and Jeannie Henley.
The hobby race was taken down by Dennis Spencer with Jeremy Bradley running a very good 2nd and leading a few laps. In 3rd was Roger Nixon with Darrell Cordary 4th and Randy Dorsett 5th.
