Bryan Hulbert – CALHAN, Colo. (June 27, 2020) Fresh off his first career victory with the ASCS Elite North Non-Wing Series, New Mexico’s Michael Fanelli added his second in as many races with his latest coming Saturday at El Paso County Raceway.

Trailing Spencer Hill the first half of the A-Feature, traffic came into play for Fanelli to help propel the No. 2 into the lead with Coby Pearce in tow. Caution with two laps to run, the green, white, checkered restart saw Michael having to fend off the pair as Hill reclaimed the runner-up position, but was unable to get back around Fanelli.

Coby Pearce crossed third from seventh, followed by Jeff Seesholtz in fourth. Ryan Devitt moved forward from 13th to fifth.

Nick Nichols, Adam Trimble, Gary Land, Matt Bolin, and Ryan Riggs completed the top ten.

The ASCS Elite North Non-Wing Series squares off again in the state of Texas as the ASCS Elite and Elite North go head-to-head at West Texas Raceway in Friday, July 24, and Saturday, July 25.
