LANSING, Minn. - The first of the Chateau Raceway track champions for 2009 were decided shortly after noon on Friday when track officials pulled the plug on the night's scheduled action. Officials decided they did not have the time needed to work in all the mud that a week's worth of rain had created.

Doug Hillson of Blooming Prairie now owns the 2009 crown in the USRA Modified division. Hillson owns a 102-point lead over Ben Mattick of Hayfield with Season Championships next Friday night. The most points any driver in that class can earn on any one night is 100 points, so even if Hillson was to not show up next week he has guaranteed his first track championship at the Lansing where he has raced for years.

Season Championship night gets underway next Friday night, Aug. 28, with hot laps at 7:00 and racing at 7:30.
