Stanford is outstanding at Pahrump’s Stormin’ Mormon

PAHRUMP, Nev. (March 2) – February starts in Arizona helped put California IMCA Modified driver Alex Stanford in victory lane in Nevada. Stanford topped Saturday’s Stormin’ Mormon special at Pahrump Valley Speedway, passing Ethan Dotson for the lead 30 circuits into the 40 lapper and then holding Hunter Marriott at bay for the $2,000 checkers.  “I was able to pick cars off one at a time after the field started to spread out,” said Stanford, who had started seventh. “There were a couple cars I went around but the bottom was the place to be. I just concentrated on hitting my marks and got them one at a time.”  “There were some yellows at the right time so the leaders didn’t get away from me,” he added.  Kollin Hibdon led early from the pole before the sixth starting Dotson took over up front on lap six.

PAHRUMP, Nev. (March 3) – Brad Pounds recalled finishing third in a street stock feature in his first visit to Pahrump Valley Speedway some 11 years ago. He has a lot more to remember from his second visit.
