LANSING, Minn. - A perfect spring night greeted fans and drivers for weekend number three of racing action at Chateau Raceway in Lansing powered by Husqvarna. The car count continued to grow as well with 16 drivers making there first appearances at the track this season and four of the six classes saw their highest individual car counts as well.

With so many new faces it only stood to reason that plenty of new faces could be showing up in victory lane for the first time this season and by the end of the night there were 10 drivers who had that first checkered flag of the year - just two of those, however, were first-time visitors.

The Noble RV USRA Modifieds mixed it up despite the slick track conditions. Tyler Rubin of Grand Meadow, making his first appearance at the track this season, jumped out to the early lead holding the point for the first four laps. Tommy Myer of Blooming Prairie, also making his first appearance of the year, got a good jump on a restart on lap 5 and bolted by Rubin for the lead.

The restart came out after a caution when Mark Noble of Blooming Prairie spun in turn 2 as he battled in the top-5 with Myer, Alan Mondus of Lakeville and Wally Bustad of Austin. Rubin got forced up high and fell back into the middle of the pack and had to try to fight his way back forward, eventaully making it back to sixth. Mondus, meanwhile, came home in second ahead of Ben Rippentrop of Hayfield.

Noble came back for fourth outdueling Mark Wytaske of Austin for the spot.

The night's heat winners were Jacob Dahle of Morristown and two first-time winners this season: Rippentrop and Doug Hillson of Blooming Prairie. After Hillson's good run in his heat, things went bad right off the start in the feature. After starting on the pole in the main event the car didn't come up to speed and he eventually ended up in the pits in last place.

The night's race program, sponosred by Power 96, featured Stock Car rides for all the kids at the begininng of the night. Chateau Raceway will continue its season-long kids promotions next week with a "Kids-R-Free" night. The track will also bring out a couple of the "Box Cars" for the kids to see next week. There Small Box shapped cars that the kids wear over there shoulders to race in. Then after giving the kids a few weeks to make one of there own the track will have "Kids Box-Car Races" on June 1st. Race time every Friday Night for Chateau Raceway Thunder in the Dirt is 7:30.
