SPRING VALLEY, Minn.—This week was Pink-Out Night with Join The Journey at Deer Creek Speedway as everyone joined together in the fight against breast cancer. Several fundraisers were held throughout the night to help raise money. There was a silent auction, a live auction, 50/50 ticket sales, T-shirt sales, fan donations, a push up challenge to the feature winners and Greg Jensen even auctioned off one of his race cars and donated some of the money from the sale.

The show was presented by Ag Star Financial Services, Ulven’s Hardware and Join The Journey. A total of 103 cars checked in on a very hot and sultry day. There was also a special appearance by the UMSS Winged Sprint Cars. Thunderstorms were in the forecast and would come into play later in the evening.

While thunderstorms approached the area, out came the Dirt Doctor Trucking USRA B-Mods for their feature run. This race was a caution filled affair and the race never developed any sort of rhythm at all. Kylie Kath led early while Cody Ahrendt hung with him. Cole Queensland quickly moved to third and challenged the leaders.

Through all the yellows, Queensland got to second and then got the lead on lap three. The race made to lap 12 when the fifth caution under green flag conditions came out. That put the tracks five-five rule in effect and five laps were dropped. That set up a green, white, checkered finish to decide things.

Queensland led the final two laps for his third win of the season. Despite the marathon race, Queensland performed 30 push-ups on victory lane and the crowd cheered him on. Kath finished in second with Ahrendt third, Jim Chisholm raced from 14th to fourth and Alex Williamson was fifth.

The lightning was really intense all around the speedway when the NAPA Auto Care Centers USRA Modifieds were staged for their 25-lap feature. Joish Angst took the lead while Jason Cummins chased him while Marl Motl and Bead Waits ran for third. Brandon Davis drove from row five and got up to third on lap five. At that time the skies let loose and an intense downpour ensued which sent the crowd running for cover and put a halt to the race. It will be picked up where the race was stopped next Saturday, July 2.
