One fast Southern New Mexico Speedway was prepped for the return of the USRA Modifieds, Sun Valley Hardware USRA Street Stocks, Peter Piper Pizza Mini Sprints, Super Trucks, Bombers, and the Hornets.

Thirteen Super Trucks checked in for battle, and Bill Murphy would lead the opening laps as he started on the outside pole. A caution would fly for a tire on the track. On the restart Sherman Barnett would follow Bill Murphy for the lead and they would loose the field. On the third lap Sherman Barnett took to lead. Martin Robinson was piloting the #21 of Walton Kyle Jr's truck. Late in the race with about five to go Robinson got to second after starting ninth. Time would run out for Martin Robinson and Sherman Barnett would clean sweep the weekend in the Super Truck division!

First time at the Southern New Mexico Speedway Trace Herring would bring his Bomber and made it look like he's been here before. At the drop of the green he lead with George La Rose giving him some heat. Well that wouldn't stop Trace Herring from picking up the win in the Bombers. He just drove away and lead it from flag to flag.

A driver who has had tons of bad luck in 2015 is trying to turn things around. Jamie Torres dominated in his heat race, and the opening laps of the main. Patrick Beach came in hot on lap four and stole the lead, but Torres got it right back. They went door to door for the lead. Later we are twelve laps in and Patrick Beach pulled off. Then Noah Hollingshead came around! He showed up to the party and also took the spotlight. Noah Hollingshead would win the Sun Valley Hardware USRA Street Stock main event.

A super fast Southern New Mexico Speedway called for a quick Peter Piper Pizza Mini Sprint main event. All drivers would spread out, and Will Gonzalez lead from flag to flag to pick up another win at the Southern New Mexico Speedway.

No better birthday present could've been possible for "Batman" Rudy Tarin Jr. At the "Park" he lead from flag to flag in the heat and the main, then twenty four hours later he did the same here at the Southern New Mexico Speedway. Rudy Tarin Jr gets a perfect sweep to dominate the Hornets this weekend.

Talk about a caution fest, the USRA Modifieds would run smooth till the last ten laps. Your top four was outstanding! It was Bumper Jones showing the way, with Jacob Gallardo following after starting 11th. Fito Gallardo would run in third after starting 15th, then Royal Jones fourth after starting twelfth. The green flew and they went FOUR WIDE, a Family Reunion!! BUT a caution flew, then another caution and same after that. We finally had a little green flag run. With five to go Royal Jones showed everyone the bottom and Bumper Jones was first to strike. Fito Gallardo had the bottom trying to get around Bumper and just couldn't hang. Bumper Jones comes back to Victory Lane to pick up his first victory of the 2015 season!
