Chad Lonneman won the USRA Hobby Stock feature.

ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa—Another hot night at Rapid Speedway drew 72 race cars. The night featured the Old Timers Series and the USRA Hobby Stock special.

The Out-Pace USRA B-Mods had 18 cars take the green flag and Thor Anderson took the lead on lap one from the pole position.

A couple mid-race cautions would bring the field together and Mitch Van Engen charged around the top-side of the track to catch Anderson on the final lap, but it wasn’t enough, giving Thor Anderson his second victory of the season at Rapid Speedway.

Thor Anderson won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

The Holley USRA Stock Cars took to the track next, and Roger Verdoorn and Matt Lange battled for the lead for many laps.

Lange would get the outright lead, but the 40 car of Scott Overgaard was coming from his 7th starting position.

Overgaard drove Verdoorn and Lange to pick up his 2nd victory of the year.

Scott Overgaard won the Holley USRA Stock Car feature.

The USRA Hobby Stocks capped off the right with a lot of drama.

Blake Arends grabbed the early lead, but Chad Lonneman was on a mission from his 10th starting spot.

Lonneman grabbed the lead before halfway, but the race would be halted with a red flag when Tim Waltner spun and got upside down on the backstretch.

The race went back green but was short lived when there was a four car pile-up in turn one, bringing out another lengthy red flag.

The race would eventually stay green and Chad Lonneman had to battle constant pressure from point leader Dylan Fitzpatrick and Blake Arends.

Chad Lonneman held off the pack to pick up his 3rd victory of the year at Rapid Speedway.

Next Friday, July 29, will feature the Holley USRA Stock Cars, Out-PAce USRA B-Mods and USRA Hobby Stocks again at Rapid Speedway!
