LAS CRUCES, NM : Twenty-laps for the Casa Nissan Legends with fifteen cars was a good one. Tyler Beiter established the front row with your 2017 Casa Nissan Legends track champion Dylan Harris. Beiter would lead lap one over Harris by a good little gap until a caution flew for Peter Smith spun in turn one.
Harris would power to the lead until another caution flew on lap four for Eli Woody, who spun in turns one and two which forced Asa Flores to sky rocket off one and two. Flores would rejoin the field.
Harris would jump back to a healthy lead with Cameron Sogge on his rear bumper. Sogge came alive with Daniel Blaeser on the charge as well. Sogge and Blaeser would battle for second before Blaeser took the battle. Both drivers were wicked fast as they both tried to chase down Harris.
Blaeser gave Harris a couple love taps to warn him he was there as the laps winded down. Harris would slip in turn two and make it even closer before a caution flew with just three laps to go. On the restart, all three drivers hugged the bottom in search for every ounce of horsepower.
Dylan Harris would lead them to the checkered flag as Blaeser tried a last corner pass as they come to the line, but fell short.
“This season is going to be really fun with Sogge and Blaeser because he’s [Blaeser] really smooth, good and hard to beat,” said Harris in victory lane as the 2017 champion sees a lot of talent in this year’s 2018 Casa Nissan Legends field.
