Colton Hardy returned to Victory Lane with the ASCS Southwest Region on Saturday night as the series kicked off a two night run at Show Low Speedway Park.

Collecting his ninth career win with the ASCS Southwest Region, Hardy’s performance was cut five laps short as a power outage gripped the track with five laps to run when the track went under red for the No. 57x of Jesse Stonecipher.

J.T. Imperial moved up to finish second with Rick Ziehl in third. Lorne Wofford made up four spots to finish eighth with Billy Chester making the top-five. Wes Wofford from 11th crossed sixth, followed by Josh Shipley, Casey Buckman, Alex Pettas, and Jesse Baker to make up the top ten.

Action continues Sunday, September 2 with gates opening at 5:00 P.M. and racing getting underway at 7:30 P.M. (MT). The weekend will also include Modifieds, Micros, Pure Stocks, and Bombers. Show Low Speedway Park is located at 4701 E Deuce of Clubs, Show Low, AZ 85901.
