Boat leads NM/AZ Sprints back to Aztec Saturday.

The USAC New Mexico/Arizona Sprint Car Series returns to Aztec (N.M.) Speedway this Saturday night and Arizona's Mike Boat hopes to extend the lead he has built with victories at Aztec June 29 and Tucson in May.

Boat leads runner-up Mike Martin by 81 points and although his lead is safe for now, a total of 72 points are available Saturday and five races remain on the 2002 schedule.

A 30-lap feature is scheduled on the 1/3-mile dirt track where Boat scored a "clean sweep" a month ago, posting fast qualifying time, winning his heat and leading all 30 laps of the main event to beat Martin, Dave Burns, Mike Ziehl and Miles Merritt.
