Spring cleaning has begun for multiple Legend drivers in the area to prepare for the big names like Nelson Stewart, Tim Brockhouse, and others that are getting set to battle for the big five thousand to win Casa Nissan Legends Spring Fling presented by Sound & Signal. Dylan Harris has been the man to beat in 2017 as he continues his winning streak alive. Harris isn't just trying to keep the perfect 2017 season alive, but his perfect 2.0 Spring Fling alive. Both $5,000 to win Spring Flings have all been owned by Harris.

"You better watch out, because I'm coming after you Dylan Harris" Said the multiple time National Champion Tim Brockhouse in his interview with Ruben last week at the Texas Motor Speedway. Tim Brockhouse has had fast runs at the El Paso Speedway Park, but has never ran the Southern New Mexico Speedway. Bullrings are nothing new for Brockhouse, in fact those are more of a driver skill track. Tim is super excited to make the trip down from Shakopee, Minnesota to give a run for five thousand dollars.

Nelson Stewart is another driver gearing up for the Southern New Mexico Speedway. Nelson made his first appearance to the Spring Fling last year, and had a top ten result. Nelson told us in his interview he likes bigger tracks, but is super excited to change things up and battle on a short track for $5,000.00. Brian Hansen, Baiden Heskett and other out of town drivers are ready to make the trip to the beautiful Land of Enchantment.

Dylan Harris, Derek DeMartino, Justin "Faster" Lasiter, Dave Smith, Dusty Riggs are just a few talented drivers that are getting ready for the five thousand showdown. DeMartino the driver who finished runner up in 305 Sprint Car Points last year, and ten time go kart champion is ready to pilot the 0i Legend. Plus Dusty Riggs a big name at the Southern New Mexico Speedway who ran USRA Modifieds and made the big ten thousand to win Fall Nationals, and Winter Meltdown mains in the past years. Plus the 2014 USRA Stock Car National Champion Justin Lasiter is driving the 11L machine along with Dave Smith driver of the 11D. Tons of local talent is ready to battle the heavy hitters.
