AZTEC, N.M. (June 11, 2022) First it was Lorne Wofford, then Wes Wofford, and now Vance Wofford is a winner with the ASCS Southwest Region as the youngest of the Alamogordo racing trio topped the showdown with the POWRi Desert Sprint Cars Saturday at Aztec Speedway.

The fourth time in a Sprint Car and first in an ASCS style car, Wofford kept pace over J.T. Imperial for the win. El Paso’s Don Grable moved from eighth to third, followed by Lorne Wofford in fourth and Rick Ziehl in fifth.

From 16th, Amarillo’s Shane Redline moved to sixth, with Jesse Baker in seventh. Brett Becker, Logan Calderwood, and Troy Treharn completed the top ten.

The ASCS Southwest Region is off through the summer and will return in October.
