Steve Wetzstein won the USRA Modified feature on Saturday, Aug. 23, at the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn.

SPRING VALLEY, Minn. -- A warm and muggy evening for racing was preceded by a wet and rainy morning which had the track crew very busy through the day trying to get the Deer Creek Speedway race ready. The track held up great throughout the night with a little wheel packing throughout the night.

The Elma Performance and Fabricating USRA B-Mods pulled onto their track for their feature event with Ben Moudry jumping out to the early lead. Jacob Bleess quickly took over the second spot. The first caution flew at the completion of lap one and on the restart Moudry again led with Bleess in second. Cory Crapser and Alex Williamchampionnightson battle for the third spot. With three down Bleess moved up the track and flew around Moudry to take over the lead while Crapser and Williamson still battled for third in a great race. Another caution with seven down saw Williamson move to the high side and blast into the second spot behind Bleess. Chad Roseendahl moved inside the top five moving past Crapser for fourth. With thirteen down another caution flew and on the restart Williamson led. Bleess held onto the second spot with Moudry in third. Crapser retook the fourth spot while Erik Kanz moved into the fifth spot. At the finish it was Williamson with the win followed by Bleess, Moudry, Crapser and Kanz. Kenny Boge Jr. won the "B" feature while Trevor Fecht, Bleess, Roseendahl and Williamson won the heat races.

Jason Cummins was shot from a cannon on the start of the NAPA AutoCare USRA Modified feature and quickly pulled away from Steve Wetzstein in second. Watching through the pack there were some great saves and the cars were on edge during this fast paced feature. Nate Wasmund and Jacob Dahle had a great battle going for fourth. Les Duellman started to pressure Dahle for the fifth spot on lap seven until a caution flew on lap ten. Cummins again led on the start with Wetzstein in second and Joel Alberts in third. Another restart on lap eleven saw Cummins slow bringing out another caution. Wetzstein used the lucky break to restart the race holding the lead. Wasmund moved into second with Alberts in third. Duellman and Brandon Davis battled for the fourth spot. Duellman pushed up in four allowing Davis and Bob Timm to move past into fourth and fifth. Another caution flew on lap fourteen with Wetzstein leading. Alberts was in third until he also pushed up allowing Timm to move into the third spot leaving Alberts to race with Davis for fourth. A final restart saw Wetzstein’s horsepower move him back out in front with Wasmund in second. Alberts and Lucas Schott raced for third ahead of Davis. With two to go Davis made it a three wide battle for third. As the checkers flew Wetzstein took home the win ahead of Wasmund, Davis, Alberts and Schott. Heat races were won by Cummins, Timm, and Dahle.

Some really tight point battles were decided on this final night of track points. Brandon Davis topped Jason Cummins in the USRA Modified division by 50 points.

Jacob Bleess and Cole Queensland were in a tight battle coming into the night but when points leader Queensland’s night ended up in an incident with the back stretch wall, Bleess took home the USRA B-Mod championship.

Congratulations to all the point champions and thank you to all the drivers and fans that supported the speedway in the 2014 season.

Racing action resumes next Saturday with the 9th Annual Labor Day Duel featuring the USMTS Modifieds. Racing action is set to start at 6 p.m.
