Dr. Tyler Mann and Four Corners Family Dental of Farmington sponsored a Dash For Cash. The top 3 cars from each heat race gained a starting spot in the Dash. Travis Montgomery won in an exciting 8 lap run as he beat Darrell Cordary to the flag by only .200 sec. Dr. Mann presented Montgomery with his prize of $250.
In the A-modified class, more cars checked in for Saturday night's racing. But once again nobody could handle the Gallardo racing family of El Paso, Texas as Fito Gallardo was in front for the 25 lap race. His son, Jacob Gallardo, was 2nd. This finish was just the opposite of Friday night. Fito pocketed $1,000 for the win. The racing behind these two was intense with cars changing positions on almost every lap. Third spot was claimed by Zane Devilbiss with Aaron Spangler in 4th. These two drivers have over 200 feature wins between them. Devilbiss is a two time national champion including this past year. Fifth spot went to a hard charging Mark Rodgers. Sixth on back were: Austin Adams of El Paso, Eddie Farley, Chase Ruble, Deral Meeks, Sr. of Rio Rancho, N.M., Jason Keeler, Julie Keeler, Doug Goodenough and Deral Meeks, Jr. of Rio Rancho, N.M. Heat race winners were Fito and Jacob Gallardo running sub 16 sec laps.
The stock car fature was 25 laps of fantastic racing. The fans were treated to several laps of the leaders running sided by side and swapping the lead four times. Race Fisher managed to make a last lap pass on young Jereamey Bradley and win a close one by .399 sec. Bradley had take the lead from Fisher on the previous lap. A great run from both of these drivers and an especially amazing run for Jeramey as he had rolled his car the night before. In a very close 3rd was Allen Bradley. Fourth was Travis Southerlin followed in fifth by Larry Bradley. Sixth on back were: Michael Farley, Jason Hockenhull, Samuel Sansoni, Ron Brewer, Traci Bradley and Skyler Heath. An early 4 car crash sidelined Sansoni and Traci Bradley. Heat race winners were: Jeramey Bradley and Race Fisher.
The B-modifieds were again dominated by Rex Higgins with Andy Hockenhull, Randy Dorsett, Kelly Klemm and Robert Cody following Higgins to the checkers. Higgins also won the heat race.
The hobby stock feature had Jason Duggins taking the early lead and pulling away for another win. In 2nd was RaNai Toler with a very strong run and 3rd went to Robert Mason. Fourth was Anne Martinez up from Grants. Fifth and sixth went to Brooklynne Kibel and Trent Najera. Duggins won the heat race.
