LANSING, Minn. Miners Outdoor and Rec of Blooming Prairie sponsored the Annual Fourth of July Holiday Races Friday Night at Chateau Raceway powered by Husqvarna. The night of on the track fireworks were capped off with a spectacular "Flashing Thunder Fireworks Display" which left the crowd feeling the heat from the several fifty plus foot high balls of flame that capped the show from the infield grass.

The crowd seems to gear up for this big show every year as with the overhead fireworks being shot off just behind turn two it puts them as close as they can get to one of these displays.

A late caution served as the springboard for a feature winner in the Noble RV USRA Modified main event. Doug Hillson of Blooming Prairie had taken the early lead in the feature after starting on the pole and after a couple of early cautions had worked his way to a pretty healthy lead on the field.

Tommy Myer of Blooming Prairie had been working traffic and he made it up to third with about eight laps remaining.

That's where the late caution came into play. Myer went straight to the outside on the restart and went straight to the front and never looked back as he scored his third feature win of the year at Lansing.

Hillson came home second ahead of Steve Wetzstein of West Conocrd. Wetzstein is the current point leader in the class.

Ben Rippentrop of Hayfield and Jacob Dahle of Morristown garnered heat wins in the class.

Racing action continues next Friday night at 7:30 with all six classes scheduled to compete on "L and D Ag Night". The night's kids activities are being billed as "Christmas in July" so it should be an interesting night for racing and track giveaways.
