Street: Dennis Ward (and won class points) over Danny Dean
Motorcycle: Ryan Cairns (and won class points) over Juan Romero

VERY UNOFFICIAL POINTS WRAP UP: All of the classes were technically still up for grabs for the 2007 ASR Points Championship. Pat Muller from Silver City, NM had the Pro class Championship wrapped up after first round when the two racers closest in points (George Vanatter and Geno Leyba) lost early. In the street class Dennis "the Killer" Ward from Wilcox, AZ and Brian Schuetta (the guy in the rental) battled down to the semi finals to determine the points champ. Dennis Ward made sure he won the championship finishing the season with another street class win. But the big drama came down to the Motorcycle and Modified classes, both determined in the final round of the last race of the year. Going into the Mod final - Danny Dean led the points over Andy Wiles. Wiles could have taken the class points lead and won the championship for the second year in a row but came up short in the final round against Travis Patterson. In Motorcycle, Robert Bonjione has been leading the points all year long with a 60 point advantage over Ryan Cairns coming into this final race. But an early round loss for Bonjione left a chance for Ryan to get the points lead if he could win the last two rounds of the race. Ryan took out his brother Sean in the semis then won the final over Juan Romero giving him the Motorcycle class points championship. Congrats to the champs and the race winners!

Albuquerque Dragway has new owners......
- After months of negotiations, an agreement has been reached to buy the assets of Labbate Enterprises LLC. The purchasing groups of Robert Costa, Lawren Jones, and Bill Elliott have bought in as major share holders of Labbate Enterprises LLC. Bob Labbate will be stepping down from his track manager position but will still be involved in some of the day-to-day activities. In his place, Lawren Jones will take over managing and promotion of the track.
- The New Mexico Land Commissioner, Patrick Lyons, has assured the group that they will get a new three year lease at the tracks existing location but with the understanding that the group will need to build a new track at a different location. Commissioners Lyons will provide land for the group. The groups plan is the keep the current track operating for the purpose of generating revenue, and at the same time keeping a safe place to race for our racers. The excess revenue would then be used for construction of the new facility.
- In closing, we have a big job ahead of us but we all feel very confident that we will get the job done.
We are currently working on the 2008 schedule and hope to have it done shortly.

It will precede a planned "full blown" $20 million casino at that location that will open in about two years, Floge said. Akela Flats is located 18 miles east of Deming.- Read theLas Cruces Sun-News Article
