No Rancho MiLagro USRA Modified driver picked up the $1,000.00 bounty presented by S&S Fishing & Rental, G3 Fitness, and Pine Top Construction as Jones scores back to back to back to back! Jaime Torres runs away with the Sun Valley Hardware USRA Stock Car main event, Dylan Harris with yet another Legend main event win and "No Mercy" Christy Barnett dominating to Super Trucks, Late Models, and the All Star Race!

Thirteen Sun Valley Hardware USRA Stock Cars checked in as Asa Flores lead the first two laps of the twenty lap feature with Jamie Torres getting around him to steel the lead. Asa Flores, Donovan Flores, and Victor Colobrio battled three wide for runner-up while Torres worked a bigger lead. Torres would win by a whole Southern New Mexico Speedway straightaway.

Dylan Harris get's the win after Dusty Riggs gets disqualified after tonight's Casa Nissan Legends main event. Riggs started twelfth and worked his way to the lead with eighteenth starter Dylan Harris. Riggs took the lead from Harris on lap twelve and survived four cautions with the lead but was disqualified for not going to tech! Joshua Jackson also got disqualified for following Riggs (teammate) to his pit. Riggs was told to not go to tech and hop into his modified and get on track. With both drivers skipping tech Dylan Harris inherits the win!

Thirty-two Rancho MiLagro USRA Modifieds checked in for battle as the $1,000 bounty was still on Bumper Jones. "the Monster" Butch Reid Jr started on the pole and had the thousand dollars on his hands until Bumper Jones got around Reid for the lead on lap three after starting fifth. Jones would run away with Christy Barnett fast on the bottom battling Reid for second. While both driver battled for runner-up Jones broke into a huge lead. Cautions flew down the road with Jones having to defend the lead and streak after three late cautions forcing a one lap dash to the finish. Nothing stopped Jones as Bumper gets his fourth straight win in a row with the Rancho MiLagro USRA Modifieds.

Christy Barnett couldn't of had asked for a better night as she started on the pole of The Body Works Super Trucks main event. At the green "No Mercy" was gone! The race was for second and Mike Garcia, and Walton Kyle Sr put on a show for runner-up. Lloyd Duffey then joined the action and stole third from Garcia. Walton Kyle Sr tried hard to catch the 44, but Christy Barnett was to fast for the boys as she would dominate The Body Works Super Trucks main event.

It was again the Christy Barnett show with the Shaw Trucking Southwest Dirtcar Late Models as she started on the pole and stayed there! Xavier Ortega was fast but had troubles in turn two. Jon Ortega would get second, but had nothing for Barnett. Fito Gallardo started tenth and worked his way to third. A caution flew on lap six bringing the field back together. No one had nothing for Barnett on the restart as she would drive into a different zip code and dominate the Shaw Trucking Southwest Dirt Car Late Model main event.

The $1,000.00 to win fifteen lap All Star Race presented by Casa Nissan was a good one! Butch Reid Jr lead the first laps with Bumper Jones working his way to third after starting last in tenth on lap three. Reid then broke into a whole straightaway lead over the field with Christy Barnett on his tale. A caution flew with three laps to go! Bumper Jones would take the lead with two laps to go and was gone! Christy Barnett would get around Reid for second and coming to the checker flag for a sweet on thousand dollar pay check Bumper Jones over shot turn four!!!
