Jackson Hale won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

This week at Deer Creek Speedway was a salute to military veterans and current serving military members. There were several things that took place to raise money for the DAV (Disabled American Veterans) of Minnesota. There was a silent auction, live auction, 50/50 ticket sales, event t-shirts and the push-up challenge in victory lane. Thirty businesses and individuals chipped in a dollar a piece for each push up done by the feature winners.

Free admission to all veterans and their guest was provided by Clements Subaru of Rochester. The program was presented by Weber Auto Parts, BK Millright, Adams Graphix and Rusty’s Last Call. A field of 113 cars were on hand to perform for the good sized crowd.

A secret donor put up an extra $200 for the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature winner. Jackson Hale bolted from row one to led the race with Trevor Fecht and Dustin Kruse close behind. A caution slowed the race early on and Hale again took off from the start.

Jim Chisholm drove to second and then got to Hale. But a series of three cautions, one for a seven car pile-up in turn one kept the race stagnant. Chisholm mounted a serious threat to Hale’s lead on laps nine and ten. Hale edged back out front on lap 11 as Kruse moved to second. Another yellow flew on lap 14 to keep Hale in check.

Hale used the top groove throughout the 18-lap race. Chisholm and Kruse had a dandy race going for second. Eyes were also on J.T. Wasmund who charged from 20th and entered the top five. Kruse passed Chisholm for second as Wasmund was up to fourth.

Hale would go on to get his first career feature win. Hale then reeled off a Push-Up Challenge record 53 push-ups in victory lane for the DAV. Kruse finished in second and Chisholm was third. Wasmund’s great run ended in fourth and Andrew Bleess raced from 11th to fifth.

Jason Cummins redrew the pole with Adam Hensel to his outside to lead the 26-car Napa Auto Care Centers USRA Modifieds to the green. Cummins took the lead with Hensel close and Jacob Bleess was third. Brian Shaw was fourth but spun to bring out a caution.

The green flag flew and Cummins nailed his right rear quarter panel into the turn two wall. Hensel bolted by and the race was on when Cummins got back to the outside and reclaimed the lead in turn four. Brad Waits and Josh Angst were behind the lead duo and row seven starter Dustin Sorensen was fifth on lap four.

Cummins extended his lead a bit with Hensel and Waits behind. Sorensen got past Angst for fourth on lap five. They would stay in that formation until a caution came out on lap 12 to set up a wild restart.

Hensel went low, Cummins high and Sorensen darted to the middle and they were three wide for the lead. Cummins came out on top and Sorensen was up to second. Cummins held his lead, but Sorensen got faster as the laps wound down.

Sorensen closed on Cummins and the race for the lead heated up on lap 18. Cummins led lap 19 by just .005 of a second with Sorensen to his inside. They continued to dice back and forth in a great battle for the lead. Sorensen was tucked to Cummins inside as they came to the white flag.

Sorensen led lap 24 as they charged into turn one. Cummins got a great run on the top shelf in turn two and drove back by Sorensen for the lead. Cummins held off another charge from Sorensen to nab his eighth win of the season in dramatic fashion.

It was also Cummins’ 18th feature trump of 2017 and then he ripped off 50 push-ups in victory lane. Sorensen was second and Hensel finished in third. Angst would take a fourth place finish and Waits finished out the top five.


Jason Cummins won the USRA Modified feature.
