LANSING, Minn. - Mother Nature has not been kind to the racers and fans at the Chateau Raceway in 2010. After four of the first six nights were weathered out, she provided a picture perfect evening for night number three.

Close to 90 race cars filled the pit area and a decent crowd turned out to witness the action. A few drivers added their names to the feature winner list including a big career first for one driver.

The Frenchís Repair and Fabricating USRA RHS Modifieds had 22 cars answer the bell for their 25-lapper. Veteran drivers Mike Sorensen and Tommy Myer would lead the field to the green. Joel Alberts had his rear suspension give way and stalled in turn one.

Sorensen fired off of row one and held Myer along with Ryan Ruter at bay. Myer and Ruter had a great race going for second as Sorensen stretched his advantage. Ruter took second on lap four as Jason Cummins was now fourth and Ben Mattick was up to fifth.

Ruter closed in on Sorensen and got alongside on a couple of occasions on lap ten and eleven. Myer rose to the challenge and again battled Ruter for second which he reclaimed on lap seventeen.

Cummins then was all over Ruter and the race for third heated up. Back up front, Sorensen had pretty much checked out. Sorensen would go on for his second win of the season at Chateau.

Cumminsí late race charge saw him overtake Myer at the checkered flag for second. Ben Mattick had a strong run to finish fourth. Jacob Dahle also snuck past Ruter at the stripe to nab the fifth spot.

Racing will continue next Friday with Kidís Rides at 7 p.m. and racing to follow. Kids in attendance will be able to ride in their favorite race car before the program. Also remember to check out the discount coupon at as each week there will be a different special coupon on the website.
