LANSING, Minn.—The 60th anniversary season of racing came to an end Friday night at the Chateau Raceway in Lansing, Minn., with the crowning of the final three track champions and more than 100 cars filling the pits.

Kylie Kath of Owatonna racked up his fourth track title at Lansing in the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod class.

Kath, who won a Pure Stock championship here in 2009 and claimed the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod title last year as well as in 2012, started last in the field of the 19 cars which took the green for the start of the feature but still managed to come home in fifth.

The night belonged to a driver making his first visit to the track this year: Troy Hovey of Decorah, Iowa.

Hovey drew a front row starting spot for the feature and led flag to flag for the win in a race that was slowed by numerous cautions.

Cole Lonergan of Dexter, who had a pass for the lead wiped out by a caution, came home in second ahead of defending Out-Pace USRA B-Mod national champion Andy Bryant of Fort Scott, Kan., who made his first visit to the track.

Heat winners for the class were Dustin Kruse of Brandon, S.D.; Brian Mahlstedt of Ionia, Iowa; and Andrew Bleess of Chatfield.
