What a thrilling night of racing at Vado Speedway Park! Nothing short of what our birthday boy Mike Garcia would’ve wanted. There were thrills, spills, and history made!


We started off with the Johnstone Supply Super Trucks where Lloyd Duffey looked fast leading early on but started to fade and lost the lead to Christy Barnett. After a gnarly pileup, we restarted with 4 to go allowing The Burning Man to take advantage and get underneath Christy for a dramatic last lap attempt at the lead. A little bit of contact down the backstretch lead to some drama after the checkered where Christy showed her displeasure ultimately leading to her disqualification and Michael Hartman finding his way to victory lane!


The Anthony Sosa Roofing late models kicked off flying around the 3/8 mile oval and Keko Perez taking the early lead. He was dominant on the bottom of the track and it seemed that no one could catch up to our friend from just south of the border. With what seemed to be no competition for him tonight, Keko found his first win in the Untied States right here at Vado!


The POWRI 360 Sunset Grill Non-Winged Sprint cars proved to once again put on a nail biter of a show! Don Grable lead most of the race after starting on the pole with Dylan Harris making multiple attempts on the 45X, trying lines high and low with no success. Michael Fanelli had the stars align for him with only 3 to go when Dylan lost some speed at the top of turn two and Grable had a bad push at the exit of four allowing Fanelli to make his way from 3rd to 1st! He ran the next couple of laps perfectly and found himself on Rio Grande Waste Services Victory Lane!


History was made in the Extreme Landscaping USRA Stock Cars as Josh Cain was racing for his 250th Win! After an early pileup with some crazy carnage, The Hurricane Josh Cain took the lead early on. Rob Mosley soon made his way up to second to challenge for the lead but he would need The Hurricane to do something he rarely does, make a mistake. With Josh running what seemed to be a perfect race he found himself on victory lane for his 250th time!


We rounded up the night with the Rancho Milagros Modifieds hitting the clay. After a beautiful 4 wide salute to make Mike Garcias birthday wish come true, we had 25 laps of head pounding racing! Jessie Haynie took the race lead early on with the young Peyton Gallardo holding onto a strong second. After a couple restarts, Fito Gallardo had made his way up far enough that a great restart allowed him to make his way up to second to battle for the race lead. After a successful attempt down the backstretch, Fito held onto the lead and held off Haynie, Nick Rivera, and C.J Hulssy for the rest of the race landing himself once again in Rio Grande Waste Services Victory Lane


It was a perfect night of racing here at Vado Speedway Park! Happy Birthday to our track manager Mike Garcia and we can’t wait to see all of you back here in two weeks for even more thrilling, nail biting, edge of your seat racing action!
