Jason Cummins won the USRA Modified feature.

The 2017 race season kicked off in grand style at Deer Creek Speedway. It was a beautiful day and 115 cars and a great crowd turned out for a fine night of racing. Before the action got underway, the kids had an Easter egg hunt with over 1,200 eggs up for grabs. The Easter bunny made a special appearance at the event and the children had a good time.

A huge field of 36-Dirt Doctor Trucking USRA B-Mods was pared down to a 26-car field to start their 18-lap main. Ben Moudry took the early lead trailed by Taylor Ausrud and Erik Kanz. Ausrud drifted high on a restart and Dustin Kruse had a slick move on the low side to steal the lead on lap three. Parker Hale battled Kanz for third and Dan Hovden entered the top five.

Kruse and Moudry had a super race up front as Kruse worked the low side and Moudry lit up the top side. They were close on lap 13 and then Moudry got the lead back on lap 15 before a late race yellow set up an exciting finish.

Moudry got a little too high in turn two and grazed the wall. That gave Kruse a shot and he stole the lead down the backstretch. Moudry regained his composure and reeled Kruse back in as the end of the race drew near. Moudry powered past on the top side and held on to the win by less than a car length over Kruse. Hale would finish third with Hovden in fourth and Kanz fifth.

Ben Moudry won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

The 25-lap NAPA Auto Care Centers USRA Modifieds closed out the night with a 25-lap main event. Jason Cummins drew the pole and that was it as he checked out. Cummins won in a run away and lapped up to the seventh place car at the checkered flag.

Jake Timm ran second until late in the race when tenth starter Lucas Schott took over on lap 20. By the time Schott got to second, Cummins was long gone. Timm drove home in third with Steve Wetzstein and Josh Angst in the top five.
