Josh Angst won th USRA Modified feature.

After a week off due to a weather cancellation, racing resumed at Deer Creek Speedway. A field of 101 cars turned out on a nice night for racing on Tru-Green Lawn Care Night. The kids earned some money and prizes with a sandbox money drop before the program got underway.

Twenty-six Dirt Doctor Trucking USRA B-Mods were led to the green flag by J.T. Wasmund and Brandon Hare. Hare took advantage of his great redraw and bolted away from the pack and took a huge lead over the pack. Wasmund and Trevor Fecht had a very good race for second in the early stages of the race.

A caution on lap six wiped out Hare’s advantage when the race was resumed. Hare took off, but Wasmund hung with him. Jim Chisholm was in the mix with Fecht and Jayden Larson. The car to watch was Dustin Kruse who started 18th and he stormed to sixth on lap 12.

One more yellow set up a two-lap dash to the finish. Hare took off and scored the win to make “Hare Nation” a very happy group. Wasmund finished second but unfortunately was tripped up in post-race tech inspection and was disqualified. That moved Jim Chisholm to second and Fecht was third. Kruse’s fine run got him to fourth and Larson was in the top five.


Brandon Hare won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

Joel Alberts and Greg Jensen led the pack to start the 25-lap NAPA Auto Care Centers USRA Modified feature. The bottom opened up on the start and Josh Angst stormed to the lead. Brad Waits challenged Alberts for second and Dustin Sorensen was right there with them. Sorensen and Waits got by Alberts and had a tremendous race for second. Angst had checked out up front, but the race behind him was really good. Sorensen was scored second on lap seven but a yellow set up a restart.

The green flew and Sorensen, along with Waits, drove three wide with Angst through turn two for the lead. Angst used the top side to drive away once again. Jason Cummins moved into the top five and closed in on the lead pack. Sorensen and Waits still waged their battle for second, but Cummins was in the picture on lap 20.

A yellow on lap 21 closed things up and brought a good conclusion to the race. Angst took off and scored his first win of the season. Cummins was able to drive to second in the final laps in a strong run from tenth. Sorensen would up third with Waits in fourth. Joe Horgdal had a very good late race run to crack the top five at the checkered flag.
