Ryan beats the heat at Deming Speedway

Liam Ryan continued to show his dominance in the 600 open class on Friday, July 3, at Deming Speedway.

The season points leader won the 600 race, overcoming Chance Crum’s early lead. Kyle Mithcell took second and Crum took third.

The 1,200 class went to Eric Turner, who parlayed a front row starting spot into a wire-to-wire win for his first triumph of the season.

Jesse Schlotfeldt won his fifth race in the last six contests in the 600 restricted division, despite spinning out on lap 5. Due to a concurrent spin on the opposite end of the track, the caution was thrown and Schlotfeldt maintained his lead.
