IMPERIAL — Stock car race enthusiasts gathered Saturday for a day of fast cars and collisions at the Imperial Valley Expo here.
The Southwest Racing Association continued its inaugural 2000-2001 season Saturday at the Imperial Valley Speedway at the IV Expo.
The main event race for factory stock cars featured 11 cars and came to a dramatic conclusion.
John Seaman of Imperial was in first place during the final lap but as he was coming around the last turn Tom Harrison of Yuma tapped him in the rear to push him out of the way, allowing Harrison to beat Seaman to the finish line by half a car length.
In the night's second main event, Mike Lerwill of Lakeside outlasted 11 other drivers to win the pro-stock class.
The final race of the day was the main event for the modified stock cars. Doug Peterson of Yuma ran past 10 other drivers to claim the win.
