SOMERTON, Ariz. (May 8, 2021) – Coming down to a last-lap battle at Cocopah Speedway on Saturday night, the margin of victory was the blink of an eye as Arizona’s Colton Hardy held off New Mexico’s Wes Wofford by 0.031-seconds for his 12th career victory with the ASCS Southwest Region.

Rolling from seventh, Hardy slipped past Wofford coming to the white flag, then had to throw everything he had at it off the final turn to hold off the No. 01. In a race, all their own, third finishing Lorne Wofford crossed 8.122-seconds later with Jayme Barnes and Charles Davis, Jr. completing the top five.

Vance Wofford was sixth with Eric Wilkins in tow. Logan Calderwood, Chris Bonneau, and Jesse Stonecipher made up the top ten.

The 2021 season is the 30th year of competition for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network.
