Night one of the Rancho Milagro Short Track Shootout was a windy cold one but the racing made it all worth it. 128 cars accumulated within the United States Modified Touring Series, Casa Nissan Legends, Sun Valley Hardware USRA Stock Cars, Hacienda Carpet & Tile USRA X-Mods, and the Anthony Sosa Roofing Late Models.

The reigning 2017 USRA B-Mod National Champion out of Springfield, Missouri made the trip to the Land of Enchantment again looking for more hardware with the Hacienda Carpet & Tile USRA X-Mods. The twenty lap feature started with Nathan Smith leading opening six laps with three cautions. Lap seven Josh Cain "the Hurricane" made some noise and scored the lead. Three laps into his spotlight Ryan Gillmore started making a creep. The yellow would fly on lap ten. Gillmore charged on the restart but couldn't get it. Gillmore would then change lanes and march to the top on lap twelve. Making the trip from the Show-Me State pays off as he cashes the opening night check.

Dylan Harris picks up another win with the Casa Nissan Legends as his dominance continues. Harris lead from flag to flag with two cautions during the feature. Cameron C.J. Hulsey, Cameron Sogge, and Daniel Blaeser battled hard for second which allowed Harris to run away. Hulsey got second followed by Sogge and Blaeser.

Canyon Lake, Texas racer GW Egbert drives his way to Sun Valley Hardware USRA Stock Car victory lane in round one of three. The 195 of Michael Sheen lead the opening four laps until Egbert went around him on lap five of fifteen. Egbert broke out to a beefy lead over Sheen who was alone in second. Tony Hill sliced his way to third over Cary White and Allen Bradly. The cars spread out during the fifteen lap feature with good battles for third and fourth.

California, Minnesota, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona represented in the Anthony Sosa Roofing Late Models as Clay Daly picks up his first win in New Mexico. Daly and Fito Gallardo established the front row with Daly starting the party. Fito Gallardo would have his hands full as G.W. Egbert battled for second while he was trying to catch Daly. Gallardo would slip of turn two just a tad and let Egbert and Barnett around. Jacob Gallardo, Fito Gallardo, and Christy Barnett went three wide early for the third spot. Jacob would win the battle and would end up putting the cherry on top of the battle as he got around Egbert for second. Egbert would follow with Christy Barnett and Fito Gallardo. Jacob Gallardo tried to catch Clay Daly on the bottom but Daly looked really smooth on the center. The battle for fourth heated up as Fito would get Barnett around the outside. Lapped traffic came into play on lap seven giving Daly some separation from Gallardo. A lap thirteen caution glued the field back together. Daly would break away with Egbert challenging Jacob Gallardo for the runner-up honors. A caution would fly on lap seventeen and seventeen again. Jacob Gallardo would finally find some speed and get under Daly's left rear with three laps to go! As the laps came to a close Gallardo would get closer and closer taking some shots off of the corners but Daly would win the Anthony Sosa Roofing Late Model Feature!
