CRESCO, Iowa -- Six hours before Dillon Anderson pulled is USRA Stock Car out on the track for the feature event, he was rippin’ dirt at a go-kart track in Canton, Minn. Anderson started in the front row for the USRA Stock Car feature on Sunday night at the Cresco Speedway and had jumped out to an early lead. Anderson received heavy pressure throughout the entire race from fourth-starting Dan Jones.

As Jones and Anderson duked it out, Kyle Falck was wiggling his way through the field. After two mid-race cautions, the stage was set for the remaining 10 laps. With under five laps remaining, Falck made contact with Anderson and the No. 44 machine was sent spinning in front of the field, and collected a couple cars in the process. Falck was the penalized car and was sent to the back of the field with Anderson regaining his lead position.

On the restart, a hard-charging Shay Curtin snuck past Jones for second, but it wasn’t enough for Anderson who claimed wins in back-to-back weekends at the Cresco Speedway.

Dan Hovden picked up his first career win at the Cresco Speedway a few weeks ago. Needless to say, Hovden has begun to figure out the 4/10-mile track. Hovden started in the front row for the feature event in the USRA B-Mod class and led every lap thereafter.

Even after a late-race caution, Hovden steered his way into victory lane untouched in the process.

Adam Cline has seen the runner-up check many times this year at the Cresco Speedway. Cline, like Hovden, started on the front row for the feature race for the USRA Hobby Stocks. Cline was able to drive away from the rest of the field, but another mid-race caution brought the field together.

Cline showed he had the dominant car of the night and led every lap of the feature race.

The Cresco Speedway will be home to another Labor Day Weekend special as the United States Modified Tour Series rolls into town for the final race of the season. The “Cresco Bowl” will take place on Sunday, Aug. 31.
