ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa—On a cool evening at the Rapid Speedway Friday night It was “Hobby Stock Madness” in the USRA Hobby Stock feature.

Nineteen cars started but only 11 finished after a huge wreck about halfway through the event. Tim Waltner led the race early from the fourth starting position but contact with another car on a restart sent Waltner spinning in front of the entire field, creating a massive wreck. Coming out of the wreck was a gift as it sent eight of the race cars to the infield for the night. Dylan Fitzpatrick inherited the lead for the restart and Alex Wiertzma, from the 16th starting spot, pressured Fitzpatrick the remaining laps but it was to no avail as Fitzpatrick held on to win his second feature of the season at Rapid Speedway.

Dylan Fitzpatrick won the USRA Hobby Stock feature.

Colter Deutsch, fresh off a win from one week ago, was hungry for another as the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature was kicked off. Deutsch quickly weaved through the field from his ninth starting spot to grab the lead from Trevor Tesch after a couple laps. Lyndon Johnson worked his way to second throughout the race after starting 12th, but it nobody could keep up with Deutsch. He went on to lead the remaining laps, through many restarts, to claim his third victory of the season.

Colter Deutsch won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

Seventeen Holley USRA Stock Cars took the green flag to cap off the night. Darwin Klaassen jumped to the lead early but the second caution of the night waved after Marlin Kracht cut a tire down, causing Roger Verdoorn to spin and gets broadsided by Eric Gaul, ending both of their nights. On the restart, Elijah Zevenbergen went where nobody else was running: the bottom. He drove under Klaassen for the lead after methodically working his way from his 12th starting position. Zevenbergen left the rest of the field in the dust after taking the lead, taking home his sixth trophy of the season at Rapid Speedway, followed by Justin Regnerus and Rich Gregoire, respectively.

Elijah Zevenbergen won the Holley USRA Stock Car feature.

Next Friday, Aug. 12, we will have the Stock Car Special. You won’t want to miss the drivers battle it for the extra money.
