Roger Verdoorn won the Holley USRA Stock Car feature.

ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa—The USRA Hobby Stock feature was missing something on Friday evening: caution flags.

The feature went caution-free and Todd Uhl took the early lead, but after four laps Blake Arends passed Uhl for the lead.

Chad Lonneman got to third, but it was not enough as Arends grabbed his third victory of the year at Rapid Speedway.

Blake Arends won the USRA Hobby Stock feature.

The Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature event had drama with two laps to go as leader Cullen De Ruyter had a lapped car spin in front of him and making contact.

Luckly, De Ruyter had no major damage and regained his spot for the restart.

He held off Tyler Tesch on the final restart for his fourth victory of the season.

Nick Vanbelle picked up a season best second-place finish as well.

Cullen De Ruyter won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

The Holley USRA Stock Car feature was the race of the night, started off by Eric Gaul grabbing the lead on the start.

After a caution for contact between Woelber and Kracht, Roger Verdoorn raced his way by Gaul to gain the lead.

Verdoorn and Rich Gregoire would go on to battle side by side for many laps until a caution came out with two laps to go, giving seven-time feature winner Elijah Zevenbergen a new found hope.

On the restart, Zevenbergen went from third to first, but it was all for not as a caution waved before they completed a lap.

The next restart, Zevenbergen got by Gregoire, but couldn’t clear Verdoorn.

Verdoorn drove a flawless final lap as he beat Zevenbergen to the finish line by three-quarters of a car length.

The victory was Verdoorn’s first of the year at Rapid Speedway.
