LANSING, Minn.—Perfect weather greeted fans and drives for the fifth week of racing actin at Chateau Raceway in Lansing Friday night. A nice field of cars was on hand with 14 drivers making there first appearances of the season at the track. A full slate of heats were run along with some of the best features of the season with fans often on there feet as finishes went down to the final lap and even the final turn.

In the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod main event it was a pair of brothers who provided the excitement up front. Kadden Kath of Owatonna started on the front row and quickly took control of the race with Jayden Larson of Mankato running second. Larsen was having a good run before he caught the wall in turns three and four getting two wheels up on the wall for awhile. The incident ended his night. The wall also claimed Kenny Wytaske of Lansing who was making his second start of the season. Kenny was making a bid for second past the midway point when something apparently broke on his car and as he tried to slow he slid into the concrete barrier ending his night. Meanwhile Kylie Kath who like Blowers in the Street Stock class has gone four for four to start the year in feature wins had moved to second. It was a race between the brothers and a duel between two completely different lines. Kadden stuck to the top shelf while Kylie hugged the bottom with Kylie getting along side in the middle of the turns but Kadden shooting off the top of turns 2 and 4 to maintain his lead. All the way to the checkers over the final handful of laps the two went with Kadden getting family bragging rights for the week and ending his brothers string of wins. A.J. Zvorak came out of row three to take home third ahead of Taylor Ausrud of Hayfield and Mark Wytaske of Austin. Mark, one of the heat winners on the night came from back in row five for the top five finish. The Kath brothers scored the other two heat wins.

In the USRA Modified main event Jason Cummins of New Richland, who had picked up a heat win earlier in the night, was looking for the sweep when he jumped to the early lead. It turned into another tale of who wants to run top shelf and who wants to run the bottom as Brandon Davis of Medford moved into second and set his sights on Jason. Cummins had chosen to run the bottom so Brandon, who had the classes other heat win, picked the top of the track. Cummins had opened a bit of a lead but the top line was working for Davis as he reeled him in and the two dueled for the top spot. Davis moved to the front on lap 15 of the 25 lap feature but Cummins stayed within striking distance the rest of the way but could not strike back as Brandon scored his fourth feature win of the year at the track. Greg Pfeifer JR of Brownsdale had a nice run coming home third ahead of Darwyn Karau of Kasson. Darwyn had started tail end after being a no show in his heat when mechanical problems stopped him from getting on the track in time.

With June coming to a close the calendar turns to July and it is going to big a big month at Chateau. It was recently announced the track will be adding even more excitement to the Fourth of July fireworks spectacular on Friday, July 8. Along with the yearly spectacular fireworks show NASCAR driver Michael McDowell of Circle Sports-Levine Family Racing will be on hand with his Thrivent Financial NASCAR race car. Michael is driving part time in the Cup series this year and will be on hand with his Car and Crew. There will be a meet and greet with photo opportunities and autographs. On top of that Michael will get behind the wheel of a USRA Modified and do battle with the local boys. Should be a great night. Also coming up during the month of July will be the rescheduled 19th Annual Mike Guttormson Memorial on July 29h with the USMTS on hand running for their share of the big purse.
