Herrera Shines at Hollywood Hills with ASCS Rocky Mountain Sweep
SAN FELIPE PUEBLO, N.M. (June 28, 2008) -- Albuquerque's Johnny Herrera completed a sweep of the weekend's American Sprint Car Series Rocky Mountain Region double at Hollywood Hills Speedway by wiring the field in Saturday night's 30-lap feature.
With the victory and his second ASCS Rocky Mountain Region weekend sweep of the year, Herrera has now reached victory lane in his last nine ASCS Rocky Mountain Region starts within the state of New Mexico, dating back to 2005.
Originally slated to start fourth, Herrera slid up to the front row outside when slated second-starter Tim West was forced pitside with mechanical ills.
Herrera then outgunned pole starter Scott Box for the point at the drop of the green and was never headed despite several cautions along the way.
Herrera took the checkered flag in front of James High, with Box taking the show position. Derrik Ortega reclaimed the series points lead by finishing fourth, with Jerry Brey rounding out the top five.
Jeremy McCune advanced seven positions to finish sixth, with Billy Page, Bud Goodwin, Paul Whitehead and Scott Milan completing the top ten.
After entering the night atop the point charts, Chad Corken finished 13th after experiencing fuel system issues and left the night eight points in arrears to Ortega.
Page, Bob Schaeffer and Corken won Saturday night's heat races, with Jesse Baker victorious in the "B" Main.
