USRA Modified Racing this Saturday Night!
This Saturday evening exciting Family Entertainment is waiting for you at USA Raceway. The USRA Western Modifieds, the Unifirst Super Stocks, Factory Stocks and Hornets will be racing this weekend.
Heading the racing program this week at USA Raceway is the USRA Sanctioned Western Modifieds. Chad Ayers, the points leader, has a slim 25 point margin over Cody Alvarez who had a strong 2nd place finish behind last race winner and Las Cruses standout, Stormy Scott. Tucson racing legend Carl Trimmer is third in points with a 29 point lead above Rick Spencer. Dana Fite rounds out the top five.
Robert Adams could be the spoiler in the chase for the championship especially if he performs this week as well as he did last race with a last lap pass of Ayers for third. Midway through the last race it was like Adams was on rails through the corners as he was catching the leaders but ran out of laps and settled for 3rd. Will Robert Adams be the spoiler in the chase for the championship run between Ayers and Alvarez?
