Don Grable won the Lucas Oil POWRi 305 Sprint Car feature on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at the Southern New Mexico Speedway.

The Southern New Mexico Speedway presented the Lucas Oil POWRi 305 Winged Sprint Cars, Sun Valley Hardware USRA Stock Cars, Casa Nissan Legends of the Southwest, the Anthony Sosa Roofing Southwest DIRTcar Late Models, and the Hacienda Carpet & Tile USRA X-Mods on a June 9th, 2017 edition.

Donavon Flores revisits victory lane with the Sun Valley Hardware USRA Stock Cars after starting twelfth. Tyler Beiter would lead the first two laps until Jed Smith found momentum to snatch the lead on lap three. Smith would lead until a late caution flew on lap thirteen of fifteen. On the green white, checker finish Flores would get around Smith for the lead and work his way to the checker.

Daniel Blaeser picks up his second win with the Casa Nissan Legends of the Southwest after starting ninth. Teddy McCutcheon would lead the opening round with David Lackey on his rear. Lackey would lead lap two until Cameron Sogge who started tenth lead lap three. Two cautions would fly back to back. Sogge had no trouble until lap ten came around. Blaeser tested each groove, finding the fast lane. Sogge would lose the lead on lap eleven with the thirteen-year-old picking up his second career feature win with the Casa Nissan Legends of the Southwest.

Jacob Gallardo turns his Late Model program around as he cashes the victory with the Anthony Sosa Roofing Southwest DIRTcar Late Models. It was a Javier Zapin Jr show up front until a caution flew on lap seven. On the restart Gallardo would muscle his way to the lead. Gallardo would take control and run away with the victory.

Don Grable parks the Butch Box owned 40x back in victory lane Saturday night with the Lucas Oil POWRi 305-Winged Sprint Cars presented by Sound & Signal Systems. Brandon Schure would lead the opening fourteen laps with Grable turning faster lap times coming from third. Lorne Wofford would get to second trying to reel in Grable but couldn’t as the 40x machine could run anywhere around the race track picking up the win.

Mike Rosales was a humble man after picking up his second win of the season in his Hacienda Carpet & Tile USRA X-Mods. Jed Smith would lead lap one with Mingo Jaurequi taking on lap two after Smith makes hard contact with the turn four wall. Rosales started eight dancing through the field with Nick Rivera who started fifteenth. Both drivers made their way to second and third. Rosales was hooked on the top of the race track getting around Jaurequi for the lead on lap twelve. Rosales had no trouble from there as he would run away to win his second Hacienda Carpet & Tile USRA X-Mod Feature.
