It was a picture perfect night for racing at Deer Creek Speedway this week. Ninety-one cars checked in to battle it out on the speedway. This week’s event was presented by Compeer Financial and Ruehlow Farms.

After the redraw for the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods, former track and USRA national champion Brandon Hare was on the pole with Parker Hale flanked to his outside. Hare led lap one with Hale and Channing Warner in hot pursuit. A caution on lap three would slow the race down.

On the start, Dustin Kruse passed Warner for third and was close behind Hare and Hale. Warner then had his hands full when Kadden Kath and Jim Chisholm moved up to challenge. Kruse got by Hale for second and Chisholm was a rocket on the top side and was up to third.

Chisholm shot past Kruse for second and then another caution would keep the lead pack close together. Kruse would battle Hare for the lead on the restart and Kadden Kath was up to third. Kruse stole the lead on lap eight and the yellow flag returned on lap nine.

Hale returned to second on the start while Chisholm and Hare raced for third. Chisholm got to third and then Hale, Kruse and Chisholm went three wide for the lead on lap 12. Kruse was again up front one lap later by a scant .05-of a second.

A caution on lap 15 set up a three lap dash to the finish. Kruse led the rest of the way for his second win in a row and third of the season. Hale finished in second with Chisholm in third. Derek Clement made some late race moves to finish in fourth with Jerry Young in the top five.

Dustin Kruse won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

Josh Angst and Jason Cummins led the Napa Auto Care Centers USRA Modifieds to the green flag for their 25-lap feature. Cummins took the lead while Angst gave chase. Dustin Sorensen moved to third followed by Brad Waits.

Cummins pulled away from the pack while Angst held a solid second. Waits passed Sorensen for third on lap six. The leaders moved into lapped traffic and Angst was able to reel in Cummins on lap 16. Once the leaders had a clear track Cummins opened up the lead once again.

Cummins cruised to his seventh win of the year with Angst second. Waits would finish in the third spot while Sorensen was fourth. Joe Horgdal had a good run to round out the top five.
