Herrera Hauls in ASCS Rocky Mountain Region Win at Aztec
AZTEC, N.M. (May 30, 2008) -- Albuquerque's Johnny Herrera continued his winning ways at Aztec Speedway by racing to victory lane in Friday night's 25-lap American Sprint Car Series Rocky Mountain Region feature event.
Starting from the front row outside, Herrera gunned into the lead at the outset and led throughout, denying several bids from former series champion Keith Rauch on the way to his sixth consecutive ASCS Rocky Mountain Region win at Aztec.
Current series point leader Derrik Ortega chased Herrera and Rauch to the stripe, with Chad Corken taking the fourth and final lock-in position to Saturday night's main event.
Colt Treharn rounded out the top five, with Jerry Brey, current ASCS Southwest Region point leader Ben Gregg, James High, Scott Box and Bud Goodwin completing the top ten.
Brey, Corken, Herrera and Box topped heat race action for the 28-car field, with Jeremy McCune winning the "B" Main.
