Supertrack Southwest results from 6/15
By Mike Jaxson


     Who ever said the best man for the job is a woman. Must have had Shelby Hinte in mind.  During  the Junior Sportsman I main event, June 15 at Supertrack Southwest, she held off Derek DeMartino, Shane Smith and Cory Stogden to claim the beginners class title trophy.  "It felt great beating all the boys," she said of her 12 lap main event victory. "The track was nice and tacky and the go-kart was perfect thanks to Charlie Graham."  Graham is a veteran of the Las Cruces stock car wars and this season he has been passing on his knowledge to the young charge.
      In the Adult Briggs Medium class, Justin Hopper lost the first heat race of the night to Sohn (spelling is correct) Montano.  However, he came back to win the main event edging out Jarrett Yearwood and Eddie Weardon.
     In the Tecumseh class, Yearwood rebounded blowing past Weardon and Jamie Nabors.  Weardon has been this year's version of Marathon Man at Supertrack Southwest. Along with the Briggs Medium and the Tecumseh categories, he competes in the Yamaha division.  Two weeks ago, he was disqualified in the main event along with newcomer  Manny Frausto. The rookie had the last word over the veteran last week. Once the checkered flag went down, Frausto waved three fingers in the air in honor of NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt who was killed earlier this year at the Daytona 500.
      In the Junior Sportsman II division, Jared Lacy from Deming took first place over Bryan Stevens and Joseph Cuilty won the Junior class main event.
     The next race is for June 29, which is fireworks night. July will be a busy month for the go-kart track located at the Southern New Mexico Fairgrounds. July 13 is Hooters of Las Cruces night and July 27 is Southern
New Mexico Speedway night. Racing action starts at 8 p.m.  Mike is the track announcer at Supertrack Southwest and at El Paso Speedway Park.
