    The second night of racing action at the Vado Speedway Park for the inaugural Battle at the Border took place Saturday and Rodney Sanders continued where he left off with another $1,000 feature race win in the Rancho Milagro USRA Modifieds.

    After coming from eighth on Friday night, the Happy, Texas, hustler had to get the job done from tenth on the starting grid tonight but the defending USMTS National Champion was up to the task.

    Calvin Iverson bested Mitch Keeter for runner-up honors, Bumper Jones was third and Fito Gallardo held off his son, Jake Gallardo, to take the fifth spot.

    In the Hacienda Carpet & Tile USRA B-Mod main event, Brock Gronwold claimed the win over Josh Cain with polesitter Dillon McCowan, Lucas Rodin and Clint Johnson rounding out the top five.

    Both Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series divisions will join the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series for a third and final day on Sunday.  The pit gate opens at 11 a.m., grandstands open at 1 p.m., hot laps begin at 3 and racing gets underway at 4 p.m. Mountain Time.

    Reserved seats (top 5 rows) are $35 and general admission is just $29. Kids ages 10 and under get in for free. Pit passes are $40.

    The Vado Speedway Park is a new state-of-the-art, semi-banked 3/8-mile clay oval located just off I-10 at exit 155, then 0.2 mile north on Stern Dr. (track is on your left) in Vado, New Mexico (between Las Cruces and El Paso).
