Boat, Martin renew NM/AZ battle Friday at Tularosa.

The USAC New Mexico/Arizona Sprint Car Series resumes action this Friday night as it makes its inaugural appearance at Sertoma Speedway's 3/8-mile dirt oval in Tularosa, N.M.

Mike Boat of Phoenix, Ariz. leads the series standings by 46 points over Mike Martin of Yuma, Ariz. going into Friday night's race with 72 total points available.

Three different winners have emerged from the first four races in the brand-new series, including Boat, who won at Tucson, Ariz. in May and Aztec, N.M. last month. Lady driver Kaylene Verville won at Show Low, Ariz. in May and Rick Ziehl won the series opener at Las Cruces, N.M. in April.
