LANSING, Minn. -- The Chateau Raceway opened its 56th season Friday with a large crowd and a packed pit area on a nice, albeit cool, spring evening. Ninety-nine cars were set to do battle to see who would be the first winners of the season.

The debut of the USRA B-Mod class had 11 cars take the green flag for their 15-lap finale. It was a good race up front with Scott Demmer the leader and Nate Chodur along with Kylie Kath dueling for second. A caution on lap 9 for a stalled Jacob Bleess was the undoing for Demmer.

On the restart, Demmer’s machine pushed up the track allowing both Chodur and Kath to flash past in turn one. Chodur held off a couple of attempts from Kath to become the first ever USRA B-Modified winner. Kath finished a close second with Demmer third. Brian Mahlstedt and Austin Schrage rounded out the top five.

The final race of the evening featured the French’s Repair and Fabrication USRA Modified 25-lapper. Brandon Davis took off from the pole position and dominated the field to take the checkered flag. Davis was in his own zip code and even a couple of yellow flags did nothing to slow him down. Josh Angst wound up in second with Doug Hillson third. Lucas Schott and defending track champion Jason Cummins finished out the top 5.
