Race Notes:



Sunday: Just prior to the start of the 50-lap feature event, promoter Royal Jones announced that if Friday night’s winner Tommy Myer or Saturday’s winner Stormy Scott would drop to the tail, they would not only win $25,000 if they won the 50-lapper, but no matter what, they would be guaranteed $5,000 no matter where they finished. Both drivers eagerly took what the track dubbed as the Double Dog Dare!



Outside pole sitter Tommy Weder Jr. took the lead at the drop of the green and took off from the field as a tremendous battle ensued behind between Johnny Scott, Bumper Jones and Johnny Bone Jr. The trio circled the speedway in a tight pack as Weder drove alone out front uncontested. Weder ran away from the field out front as the battles behind the leaders were intense as well between the charging Ryan Gustin, Tommy Myer and Stormy Scott. Weder Jr., lead at the half way point with Scott, Jones, Bone and 12th starting Rodney Sanders in the top five at the 25-lap mark. The second caution of the event flew on lap 31, which bunched the field up and allowed Sanders to dive to the bottom and challenge for the race lead. Sanders dove inside of Scott and then Weder to take the lead with less than 20 laps to go and then he began to fend off the challenges from behind. Sanders was forced to withstand a third and final caution with just six laps left, but the 21 year old Happy, Texas racer was up to the challenge and raced to his second big-money event win of the season over Scott, who held off Weder at the line. Bone and Gustin waged a tremendous battle for fourth with Bone holding the spot as the checkered flag flew. Gustin ended up charging 13 spots to come home in fifth with Stormy Scott coming from 24th to 9th to earn the $2,500 hard charger award.



Joplin, Missouri’s Dave Commer won the $1,500 to win Legends of the Southwest feature. (20 cars)



Las Cruces, New Mexico’s Jack Skillin won the $500 to win Street Stock feature. (39 cars)



Alamogordo, New Mexico’s Kyle McCutcheon won the $950 to win Southwest Super Truck feature. (20 cars)
