The weather was perfect for racing action Friday Night at Chateau Raceway in Lansing and the racing was as spectacular as the Fireworks that capped off the night. After three straight weeks of rainouts Mother Nature allowed the season to resume. It was just the sixth night of racing action this season at the track compared to seven races wiped out by weather, so there were a lot of excited faces ready to see some action and the drivers provided plenty of it.

In USRA Modified action Greg Pfeifer Jr. of Austin put on a show as he stormed from a outside fifth row starting spot to his first career A Mod feature win. Pfeifer rocketed around three cars on the first lap to move up to seventh. From there he picked his way up to second by lap five as he took two more on lap two, another on lap three, and two more on lap five. Brian Shaw of Brownsdale, who claimed one of the classes heat wins on the night, had jumped to the early lead and was building a lead until a caution on lap six tightened the field back up. Off the restart Pfeifer pulled along side Shaw and the two ran side by side with Greg taking the lead at the line on lap eight. Shaw regained the advantage into turn one but Pfeifer retook the point out of turn two and never looked back. Brandon Aggen of Miltona, who also started back in row five, picked his way through the field a little slower than Greg, moved up to second with ten laps to go but could do nothing but watch the rear sail panel of Pfeifer’s car as they wound down the laps. Shaw came home in third ahead of Doug Hillson of Blooming Prairie and Darwyn Karau of Kasson. Aggen had the other heat win.

A.J. Zvorak of Blooming Prairie picked up his first wins of the season as he swept the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod class. Zvorak drew outside front row for both races and lead every lap on the night. Scott Demmer of Ellendale, who picked up the classes other heat win, made it tough for Zvorak down the stretch in the feature but could do nothing but show his fender alongside Zvorak and make him uncomfortable.

A.J. Zvorak won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

Kadden Kath of Owatonna worked from row four to come home in third ahead of Jerry Young of Blooming Prairie and Nate Chodur of Lake Mills, Iowa. Chodur had a good run going early coming off the pole for the start of the race. He and Demmer had several side by side laps for second early in the race before Demmer took control of the spot and put the heat on the leader.

Racing action continues next Friday night at 7:00 with a full slate of action which will include the Outlaw Mini Mods.
