SPRING VALLEY, Minn. -- A perfect day for racing saw 131 cars check into the back gate on Snap-On Tools night at the Deer Creek Speedway. A great crowd was treated to some great racing action around the high-banked Speedway.

Tim Donlinger started on the front row for the USRA Modified feature and took the early lead with Brian Shaw directly behind in second.

Shaw in a recently purchased Skyrocket chassis has looked vastly improved and was in the top five until a late breakdown.

Mike Sorensen and Brad Waits worked into second and third respectively until a caution with fifteen to go sent Sorensen to the pits with a tire change.

Donlinger continued to lead on the restart with Waits and Shaw duking it out for second. Bruce Angst and Bob Timm were flying around the top in fourth and fifth.

Waits gained second with twelve to go with Timm moving into third shortly thereafter.

Timm worked past Waits with six to go for the second spot as Steve Wetzstein cracked the top five.

A restart with three to go made for an exciting finish. Donlinger continued to dominate while Timm followed him around the track to the checkers.


Feature - Tim Donlinger, Bob Timm, Brad Waits, Bruce Angst, Mike Sorensen, Nate Wasmund, Jay Ihrke, Hank Rollinger, Jay Poidinger, Chris Ortel.
