Making his departure from the 2017 California Micro Speedweek well worth the almost 10 hour drive to the Arizona Speedway, the win is Hardy’s fourth overall with the ASCS Southwest Region.
Leading all 25 laps, Hardy was followed to the finish by New Mexico’s Wes Wofford, who came from the 11th starting spot. Jesse Baker was third with Lorne Wofford coming from 12th to finish fourth. James Aragon made up the top-five. Casey Buckman from 15th was sixth with Cody Sickles seventh after starting 18th. Steve Cushman, Lance Norick, and Darrell Sickles rounded out the top-ten.
Heat Race winners picked up an extra $100 each from Ron Gilson Photography and the Southern New Mexico Speedway. Winner’s included Colton Hardy, Jesse Baker, and Josh Shipley.
The ASCS Southwest Region hits the road for their next stop at the Southern New Mexico Speedway in Las Cruces, N.M. on Friday, July 28 and Saturday, July 29. More information on the events can be found at http://www.snmspeedway.com.
