Kadden Kath won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

Rain showers were all around Deer Creek Speedway on Saturday, but only a few sprinkles fell at the facility. This week’s event was presented by Advanced Disposal, Weber Auto Parts, Nu-Tech, Wagner Trucking and Podien’s Power Equipment.

One hundred four cars were in the pit area this week. Three drivers added to their win totals and two would get their first wins of the season. One of those was a first-time winner on dirt.

The Out-Pace USRA B-Mods had Nick Wagner in the lead with Kadden Kath and Ryan Maitland going at it for second. Kath broke away and then chased Wagner to steal the lead on lap two. A couple of early yellow flags would keep things tight.

After a lap-three yellow, Maitland got to second and Dustin Kruse moved to third by Wagner. Wagner fired back and had a good race with Kruse for a few laps until Kruse took over.

Kath led the rest of the way for his second win of the season. Kath was also the first repeat winner in the division this season. Maitland finished second with Kruse third. A.J. Hoff got his first top five in fourth with Wagner fifth.

Troy Hovey picked up the $50 Hard Charger Award from Weber Auto Parts

Brad Waits and Josh Angst led the 25-car USRA Modified feature to the green flag in their 25-lap finale. Waits took the lead and opened up a big gap in the early stages.

Angst settled into second while Ryan Ruter and Darwyn Karau raced for third. Ruter slipped past and then Karau was challenged by Keith Foss. Jacob Bleess ran fourth but 11th-starting Jake Timm was on the fly in fifth.

Waits continued to hold a healthy advantage and Angst was solid on second. Ruter held third as Foss passed Karau for fourth and Timm was up to fifth. Foss and Timm reeled in Ruter and the race was on for third. Timm passed Foss and then got by Ruter on lap nine.

The leaders entered lapped traffic on lap 12 and that allowed Angst to close slightly on Waits. It was a great race behind them with Timm, Ruter and Foss dueling for position. Nate Wasmund started 12th and was up into the top five at this point.

A caution on lap 18 slowed things down and free the lead pack from the lapped cars. The green came out and Timm got past Angst for second while a great raced ensued for third. Waits had once again opened up a bit of a lead, but Timm closed with a few lap to go.

The white flag flew and Timm went low in turn one and was even with Waits for the lead down the back-stretch. Timm made a bold move in turn three and got by Waits to steal the win at the line.

Waits was second with Angst in third. Karau was fourth and Wasmund finished fifth. Joel Alberts and Timm tied for the Weber Auto Parts Hard Charger Award and split the $50.


Jake Timm won the USRA Modified feature.
