LANSING, Minn. -- Race fans witnessed another wild and wooly night of action at Chateau Raceway this week. Seventy-six cars signed in the back gate Friday night and several first time winners took the checkered flag.

The L&D Ag USRA B-Mod feature got off to a rough start with two early yellow flags. Josh Mattick took off from the pole and the pack chased him throughout the 15-lap race. Kylie Kath and Dustin Sorensen had a spirited race for second as they swapped the spot several times. Kath would take over on lap seven and set off after the leader.

A yellow on lap eight would give Kath a chance at the leader Mattick. Kath got a good drive at the green and wheeled to the outside of Mattick but was unable to wrestle the lead away. Mattick would go on for the win with Kath second and Sorensen in third. Michael Wytaske had a great run to fourth while defending track champion Kadden Kath was fifth.

Todd Scharkey drove off from row one and led the entire 25-lap French’s Repair & Fabrication USRA Modified feature. Scharkey charged past pole-sitter Darwyn Karau and pulled away. Jason Cummins who was in Damon Haslip’s car after his car was damaged in heat race action erupted in a plume of smoke and set off a caution flag.

On the start Brandon Davis who was guest piloting Greg Jensen’s GRT chassied Modified snuck past Craig Shaw for second. Dennis Hillson then broke down on lap 19 to bring out the event’s final caution. Scharkey was unfazed by the two yellows and raced to his milestone 50th win at the speedway. Davis was a distant second with Shaw third. Joe Horgdal ran fourth and Karau rounded out the top five.

Racing resumes on Friday, June 6 with fan appreciation night. All spectators will be admitted free to the speedway this week thanks to Misgen Auto Parts, L&D Ag and Farm Boy BBQ. For more information please visit
