Hello, racing enthusiasts! Dr. Joaquin Acosta here, welcoming you back to Vado Speedway Park for a night that promised high stakes and delivered even higher excitement. As the engines roared and the dust settled under the bright lights this April 20th, 2024, we witnessed an evening where champions were forged and rivalries intensified. From the seasoned pros making strategic comebacks to rising stars claiming their spots on the podium, every race was a chapter in the thrilling saga of our beloved track. Let’s dive into the action-packed highlights and relive the moments that made last night unforgettable.

🚘 S. H. Automotive Pure Stocks
The night kicked off with David Garcia Jr. showcasing an outstanding performance in the Pure Stocks category. Starting from the 10th position, Garcia masterfully navigated his way through the field to clinch his second consecutive victory. His adept handling of multiple cautions and precise line choices set him apart, proving that a well-dialed car and a sharp driver are an unbeatable combination.

🛻 Johnstone Supply Super Trucks
In the Super Trucks race, Billy Roy Harris defended his pole position fiercely against Christy Georges-Barnett, who surged from the back with determination. The race was a tactical battle, with Harris maintaining a low line around the turns, fending off Barnett’s late-race charge. The crowd was thrilled as Harris emerged victorious, holding off the “fastest woman on dirt” in a nail-biting finish.

💨 POWRi Jackson Compaction Winged Sprint Cars
The Winged Sprint Cars race was a showdown of tactics and tenacity, featuring brothers Vance and Wes Wofford along with Caleb Saiz, who eventually took the lead. Saiz’s resilience was on full display as he managed heavy lap traffic and sustained pressure from Wes Wofford to secure a well-earned victory. His recovery from a severe crash last season to triumph tonight was nothing short of inspiring.

🏎️ Anthony Sosa Roofing & Construction Late Models
Jonathon Ortega dominated the Late Models, delivering a masterclass in track control and strategic racing. From an eighth-place start, Ortega worked his way to the front, expertly using the lower line to his advantage and holding off challengers like Cory Davis and Walton Kyle Jr. His performance not only secured a victory but also set a high bar for competition.

🏆 Hacienda Carpet and Tile USRA B-Mods
The final race of the evening, the USRA B-Mods, was a dramatic affair with Aasa Flores emerging victorious after a series of intense duels and restarts.
