Despite a broken front suspension, Tommy Myer walked away with trophy on Friday, May 1, at the Chateau Raceway.

LANSING, Minn. - Beautiful blue skies greeted cars and drivers for week four of American Racer USRA Weekly Racing Series action at Chateau Raceway powered by Miner's Outdoor Power & Recreation. A nice field of cars but on a great show.

Tommy Myer of Blooming Prairie blitzed the field in the French's Repair & Fabrication USRA Modified feature but was lucky the race wasn't one lap longer. Myer jumped from row two to the front with a nice little three wide move down the back straightaway and through turns three and four on lap one. Myer went right up the middle of the front row of Dustin Steinbrink of Austin and Ben Mattick of Hayfield. He never looked back as he stretched out he lead over Mike Sorensen of Rochester.

The hard charger of the race was Tom Paulson of Kasson who started tail end in the race in wound up in third. Doug Hillson held on for fourth follwed by Ben and Joel Mattick, respectively.

Meanwhile, while making his way back around the track after the finish, Myer's car broke down and he pulled to victory lane in with some obvious suspension problem. He left victory lane on the end of the wrecker with his trophy and the spring out of the left front of his car laying inside.

Sorensen and Ben Mattick took the heat wins.

Racing action continues next Friday night, May 8, at 7:30.
