FOUNTAIN CITY, Wis. -- Tyler Droste took the lead at the drop of the green flag, and then led all 20 laps of the main event Friday night at the Mississippi Thunder Speedway to notch his first victory in the Industrial Material Surplus Iron Man Challenge for USRA B-Mods.

The 16-year-old from Waterloo, Iowa, started from the outside of the front row and wrestled the lead away from polesitter Josh Gesell on the first lap.

He was challenged the rest of the way by Erik Kanz, but held on to pocket the $500 top prize.

Kanz, along with three other Minnesota drivers – Dan Wheeler, Parker Hale and Shaun Walski – rounded out the top five. Sixth through tenth were Brian Mahlstedt, Troy Langowski, Ben Moudry, Jason Schlangen and Alex Williamson.

The Industrial Material Surplus Iron Man Challenge will be back in action for a doubleheader during the Memorial Day Weekend.

On Thursday, May 24, the series heads to the Highway 3 Raceway in Allison, Iowa, and then on Saturday, May 26, it’s a trip to the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn.

Both USRA B-Mods and USRA Stock Cars will be on the card both nights in conjunction with the Modifieds of the USMTS Casey’s Cup Series.
