SPRING VALLEY, Minn. -- A nice crowd and 116 cars attended Keystone Automotive Night at Deer Creek Speedway Saturday despite the highly humid and overcast night. Those who braved the humid conditions were treated to some great racing action throughout the night with the final checkers waving at 9:30.

The USRA Modifieds put on a fantastic show again with Hank Rollinger taking the early lead.

Bruce Angst and Dain Schultz were locked in a dead heat for second with Mike Sorensen behind them.

Schultz and Sorensen cleared into their own second place battle while the field stacked up three wide behind them as the first caution flew with sixteen laps left.

With two more laps completed Tim Donlinger moved into the second spot with Neil Eckhart and Steve Arpin battling for fifth.

By the halfway point Donlinger had moved past Sorensen and was checking out from the field while Arpin found his groove up top.

A restart with three to go gave Arpin his shot and he used it to his advantage first nocking off Rollinger and finally Sorensen as he worked into second.

Donlinger was fast in the middle again and held on for the win.
