Porter Smith Wins The Modified Feature At Aztec Speedway–Again

By Lynn Hensley

Once again, Porter Smith showed that he and his Smith Ranch #7p modified are the dominant duo at Aztec Speedway as he led the most laps in the 25 lap feature to post another win. At one point in the race, Smith held a half lap lead on the 2nd place car. Following Smith for 2nd was Kevin Faddis with Danny Bradford a close 3rd. In fourth was Charlie Felker with Kevin Brown 5th. A small field took the green as three cars did not start the main. JJ Harpole fielded a new car and was in 2nd when he left the race after 18 laps. Craig Nelson brought out a new car and showed that not racing for quite sometime didn’t mean he had forgotten anything about driving. He started last and had moved the #11x into the top five. But on lap 17 he “tail slapped” the wall and popped a tire. His night was over. Rounding out the top ten were: Bob Harter (led several laps), Julian Garcia,jr., Jason Keeler, Garland Tucker, and Tom Cadle.

In the IMCA stock car feature, the fans were treated to one of the best races of the year. The race started out with a couple of yellows that damaged Rex Higgins and Lee Moss’s racecars. Moss had to pit for repairs but Higgins stayed on the track with the right side of his car almost ripped away. After the restart about lap 5, Higgins worked his way back to the top three and with about 6 laps to go, he and four other drivers put on quite a show for the crowd. At the checkers, Rex Higgins was the winner by a slim margin over his son-in-law, Steffan Carey. Kenny Hendershot was 3rd after leading a few laps. In fourth was Samuel Sansoni(the early leader) and fifth was Allen Bradley. Four and five wide and bumper to bumper was the action all through the 25 laps. At one point it seemed that 8 cars were in 5th place. Rounding out the top ten were: Larry Bradley, Frankie Hendershot, Jeff Jennings, Michael Farley and Shane Devilbiss.

In the IMCA Southern Sport Modified 25 lap feature, Wayne Soares charged to the front on lap 19 and then swapped the lead with Zach Hamilton and Ryan Henley for four laps. Then it turned into a two car race with Soares leading the last lap over Hamilton. This was Wayne’s 3rd win of the year. Hamilton did get 2nd with Dakota Kibel in 3rd. Brian Carey moved up to 4th with Joey Klemish coming up from 14th to a 5th place finish. Sixth through 10th were: Shane Simonton, Ryan Henley, Julie Boettler, Kristi Tenski (led a few laps) and Brandon Tenski.
Julie Boettler will journey to Boyd, Texas next week for the IMCA Southern Sport Modified Super Nationals. Julie leads the state of New Mexico in points and is 2nd at Aztec and ranks 12th in the nation. Good luck Julie Boettler.

The hobby stock feature was a wild race with Dennis Spencer moving to the front with just a few to go. Spencer beat Jeremy Bradley to the checkers for the win with Randy Dorsett taking 3rd. Darell Cordary took 4th followed by Jerrett Guilory. In one of the heat races prior to the feature, Amador Milliano barrel rolled his car three times and landed up against the wall below the flagstand…on his roof. Milliano climbed from the car unscathed. The car appeared to be a total as a portion of the cage collapsed in the violent flips. The safety crew did their usual great job after the crash.

The mini stock feature was taken down by Amanda Tenski with Jim Griffin 2nd and William Millard next. Fourth was Brandi Morrow followed by John Kester.

The Floyd Reynolds Memorial is set for next Saturday and Sunday nights. Make your plans to attend this annual event. Sprint cars and late models will be featured. Watch for more info all next week on Oval Racin, Facebook, Twitter, and
