SPRING VALLEY, Minn. -- Mother Nature tried its best to dampen the racing activities at Deer Creek Speedway as it prepared for the season opener of the 2012 season Saturday. A light mist throughout the early afternoon made the track a mess but Ryan Queensland along with the help of some great people got the track back in great racing shape for the night.

Many of the fans commented on the extra effort to get the track ready and how smooth the surface was after watching the muck peeled off the surface. Randy and Patty Eastvold from Hanson Tire in LeRoy added a $100 bonus to each of the feature winners as 143 cars pulled into the pit area on this cool April day.

The first feature on the track for the night was the USRA B-Mods. Dan Wheeler jumped into the early lead with Scott Demmer in second. Demmer quickly took over the lead in lap 2 while Jacob Bleess moved into third on lap 4. Bleess took over second on lap 6 while Erick Kanz worked into the top 5. With six down the yellow waved and on the restart Demmer again led with Bleess in second and Kanz now in third. Wheeler and Brian Mahlstadt raced for fourth. Kanz pulled alongside of Bleess on lap 10 and then took over the second spot on the next lap. Demmer took home the win ahead of Kanz, Bleess, Mahlstadt and Wheeler.

With 38 USRA Modifieds on hand tonight just making the field was a feat. Jake Timm jumped out into the early lead with Doug Hillson in second. On lap 2 Steve Wetzstein moved under Hillson to take over second. Further back, Bob Timm and Jason Cummins had the top side working as they tried to work forward. Cummins moved into the top 5 while Wetzstein worked past the younger Timm to take over the lead. About that same time Nate Wasmund started charging and worked into the top five. On the next lap Wasmund was in second and moved past Wetzstein to take over the top spot on the next lap. A caution on lap 12 slowed up the field. On the restart Wetzstein and Wasmund were side by side for the lead. Cummins was up against the wall in third as Wetzstein took over the lead. Wasmund followed Wetzstein to the stripe ahead of Cummins, Kelly Shryock and Hillson.

Racing action resumes next Saturday with a 5:00 start time. Driver cutoff is 4:30.
