Kevin Faddis Notches First Modified Win at Aztec Speedway

By Lynn Hensley, August  6, 2011

Kevin Faddis swapped the lead early in the IMCA modified feature with Mark Rodgers and Robert Reed. The first 10 laps saw several possible winners in the fight for the lead. JJ Harpole, Porter Smith and Regan Tafoya were all up there trying to mount a challenge. Only one driver cleared the others and was trying to chase down Faddis, as he had pulled the 31k out to an eight car length lead. And that was the “hired gun” from Arkansas, Jeff Taylor. Taylor came to town with both six shooters loaded. Garland Tucker put him in the 9T Taylor Motorsports car…hmmm…and told him to go for it at high noon (actually about 10:30pm). Taylor was fast, and smooth but he made his move too late and came up short by about four car lengths. He settled for 2nd after starting 12th. Kevin Faddis ran a great race and earned the victory from his 6th starting position. Finishing 3rd behind Taylor was Mark Rodgers with Robert Reed 4th and JJ Harpole 5th. Porter Smith, Reagan Tafoya, Tommy Cadle, Bob Harter and Jeremy Farley rounded out the top ten.

In the IMCA sport modified feature, Zach Hamilton piloted his #14 Hot Chassis, XL Concrete speacial to the win. But Ryan Henley was on his bumper for the last 12 laps of the 25 lap feature. Henley could get close but just couldn’t pull off the pass. He settled for 2nd with Joey Klemish placing his Mopar #1k in 3rd. Fourth went to Julie Boettler with Shane Simonton fifth. The rest of the top ten were: Dakota Kibel, Jordan Eddleman, Brandon Tenski, RL Henley and Juanita Faddis.

The IMCA stock car feature had 19 cars taking the green for the 25 lap feature. And it seemed that at least half of them tried to lead lap one. Four and five wide for awhile until a few eliminated themselves with spins and crashes. After four lead changes, last week’s winner came through again and ran off with the race. Kenny Hendershot had the #7h working the high line of the track and once he cleared Samuel Sansoni…he was gone! The race for 2nd 3rd and 4th was fun. Danny Stevenson managed to move his bent car, damaged in a lap one crash, back toward the front to claim 2nd. The 3rd spot went to Frankie Hendershot with Lee Moss 4th and Steffan Carey 5th. The other five in the top ten were: Allen Bradley, Shane Devilbiss, Arlen Cochran, Larry Bradley, and Darin James.

The hobby stocks fielded only nine cars but still put on a competitive race. After Clint Proffitt and Darrel Cordary led in the early laps, Amador Milliano eased by them on lap 7 and lead the rest of the way for his first win at Aztec Speedway. Milliano’s car rolled twice in a powder puff derby a few weeks back. Obviously Milliano put it back together nicely. Amador Milliano was followed by Cordary, Valdez and Spencer.

The mini stocks had just three cars sign in at the gate. Amanda Tenski took the win with Brandi Morrow 2nd and William Millard 3rd.

No racing at Aztec Speedway next Saturday….check out Cortez, Colorado or The Dirt Track at Sandia next week. Racing will resume on the 20th at Aztec Speedway.
