Tulsa, OK — (June 22, 2015) — The ASCS Southwest Region hits the road this weekend for the season’s only appearance at the El Paso Speedway Park in El Paso, Texas on Friday, June 26 and Southern New Mexico Speedway in Las Cruces, N.M. on Saturday, June 27.
A return to home for current Southwest point’s leader, Rick Ziehl, the 1996 Southern N.M. Speedway track champion has posted three wins on the 2015 season, and currently leads by 91 markers over Lance Norick.
The last time Rick saw Victory Lane in Las Cruces was with the NMMRA Non-Wing Sprint Cars on July 20, 2013. In 2014 however, the New Mexico native picked up two wins at the El Paso Speedway Park, first on June 20 with the NMMRA, and June 27 in 305cid competition.
Arizona’s Ryan Linder hold third with Bob Ream, Jr. fourth. The top-five rounds out with Casey Buckman.
