SPRING VALLEY, Minn. -- After a long cold winter, and a week of rain that dumped 3" on the speedway Deer Creek finally held their opener on Saturday night. The new racing surface that was applied last fall was in very good shape for the amount of moisture received during the week.

Scott Demmer took the early lead in the Elma Performance and Fabricating USRA B-Modified feature with pole sitter Cole Queensland close in second. Kylie Kath found himself in third early on with Brandon Hare and Alex Williamson racing for fourth. Queensland started to pressure Demmer for the lead. On lap five they were side by side for the lead while Cory Crapser moved around Hare for the fifth spot. Kath followed Queensland past Demmer to take over the second spot on lap eight while Crapser now raced with Williamson for the fourth spot. A caution flew over the speedway on lap thirteen for Kath in turn four. On the restart Queensland took over with Crapser flying around the high side into the second spot. Two more quic k restarts saw Crapser continue to apply pressure to Queensland but another caution would fly just as his momentum got going. The final restart on lap sixteen saw Queensland move out front with Crapser getting pressure by ninth place started Erik Kanz. Kanz took over the second spot as the white flew over the field. Queensland came home with the win followed by Kanz, Crapser, Williamson and Matt Jones. B-Feature was won by Dan Hovden. The 31 cars on hand were split into four heat races which were won by Hare, Crapser, Queensland and Jacob Bleess.

Looks like opening night jitters plagued the NAPA AutoCare USRA Modifieds as too many cautions caused the race to be shortened tonight. I can't recall this ever happening for this class before at the speedway and hopefully we won't see it again. Steve Wetzstein pulled out in front of Doug Hillson out of turn two but going into three Josh Angst took the early control of the race. The first caution flew for a failing tire on Hillson's machine on lap three. On the restart Keith Foss, Joel Alberts, Dwaine Hanson, Nate Wasmund and Craig Shaw were involved in a wreck. All cars continued on the next restart. Angst led with Wetzstein in second. B randon Davis started to pressure for the second spot. With seven down Davis took over the second spot. Caution flew on nine and then the problems started. Angst, Davis, Brad Waits, Lance Hofer and Jason Cummins were top five as another caution flew on lap eleven. Davis got a good run on lap twelve to take over the lead as another caution flew on lap thirteen. Davis led on the restart with Waits now taking over second. Cummins moved into fourth as the fifth caution flew on lap fifteen. Cutting five laps from the twenty five lap feature. Davis led with Cummins and Waits racing for second. Waits held onto the next yellow on lap sixteen changing th
e race to a green white checker dash to the finish. Davis took home the win, Cummins worked under Waits for second, Angst and Hofer rounded out the top five. Heat races were won by Angst, Cummins and Davis.

Racing resumes next Saturday night at 5:00. For more information, visit DeerCreekSpeedway.com or "LIKE" our Facebook Page. You can also follow us on Twitter @DeerCreekSpeed (#TheCreek) or on our YouTube channel.
