Davis, Kanz winners at Deer Creek
June 30, 2012
SPRING VALLEY, Minn. -- Another hot night was in store for the AGSTAR Financial night at the Deer Creek Speedway.
The Hinz Enterprises USRA B-Mods were up with Lee Jonsgaard and Al Wagner racing for the lead on lap 1. Wagner kept working the high side and on lap 3 took over the top spot. Jacob Bleess, Brady Keefe and Jonsgaard were three-wide for second with five down as they crossed the line. Bleess took over the second spot while Erik Kanz came to life and moved into third ahead of Keefe. With seven down Bleess took over the lead while Kanz moved into second. With twelve down Bleess and Kanz were pulling away from the field as a caution flew. On the restart Bleess led with Kanz in second, Jerry Young moved into third after racing with Wagner who now had his hands full with Keefe. Another restart on lap 16 set up a shoot-out for the win. Bleess led with Kanz right beside him, and as they came out of four Kanz got the run winning by less than a nose cone.
Jake Timm led out of turn 2 in the NAPA AutoCare USRA Modified feature event with J.J. Wise in second. A caution after one lap saw a restart where a nine-car pileup blocked turn 3 with Mick Glenn getting up on his side. All drivers were okay and the race was resumed. Timm led with Brandon Davis moving into second with Wise in third. Four down and Davis took over the lead. Lucas Schott flew through the field working into third by the end of the race following Davis and Timm across the line.
Racing action resumes next Saturday with the Gopher 50 Woo Late Models and USTMS Modifieds
