Lance Hofer won the USRA Late Model feature.

True, it was a bit chilly, but that's late April in the Upper Midwest. The action at the 2017 Mississippi Thunder Speedway season opener more than made up for the cool temperatures with the hot on-track action presented to the crowd on hand.

Many familiar faces and some new names hit the newly-reconfigured Mississippi Thunder Speedway with battles for positions, bragging rights and checkered flags.

Reigning USRA national champion and former Mississippi Thunder Speedway track champion Lucas Schoot returned in story book fashion to win the 25-lap Rivercity Manufacturing USRA Modified feature while 2015 Mississippi Thunder Speedway track champion Lance Hofer raced back into the Dahl Auto Plaze Victory Lane by winning the 20-lap feature for the Centerville Welding & Repair USRA Late Models presented by Big Toy Storage.

Flyin' Ryan Olson used the all-new high line and every inch of the newly-created 20-foot width of banking at the top of the track to grab the feature win in the Black Horse Bar & Grill USRA B-Mod feature, with Brady Link winning the Jailhouse Saloon USRA Hobby Stock main event.
