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.
