Queen Creek, AZ — (July 6, 2013) — Welcome to the desert, where races are sometimes halted for blinding dust storms which was the case Saturday night at the Arizona Speedway.
Working past Lap 11, the red lights blinked on around the Arizona oval as dust choked out the valley. Down for as much as ten minutes, the storms passing saw the green flag return to the one-third mile oval where Rick Ziehl picked up his third Hose Advantage Southwest Regional score of the season.
Joshua Williams crossed second with early leader Bob Ream, Jr. completing the podium. The top five concluded with Ryan Linder and James Aragon.
