Jason Cummins of New Richland, Minn., celebrates in victory lane after winning the USRA RHS Modified main event on Friday, July 30, at the Chateau Raceway in Lansing, Minn.

LANSING, Minn. - Mother Nature dug into her bag of tricks again this week at Chateau Raceway. Early morning rains again made things a challenge to get the facility up to speed and ready for racing.

It misted right before start time, but the show went on from there. This week’s action was sponsored by Misgen Auto Parts along with R&S Racing. R&S Racing gave the winner of the Modifieds a coupon worth $50 from Allstar Performance and R&S Racing.

Jacob Dahle was the leader of the USRA RHS Modifieds in the early stages. Doug Hillson ran second while Josh Mattick was close behind him in third. Several yellow flags would keep the field tight.

Dahle was in control past the halfway point, but Jason Cummins made some noise when he showed everyone the topside was fast. Cummins started tenth and cracked the top five on lap 10.

Cummins continued his assault towards the front when he got by Joel Alberts for the fourth position. Another yellow on lap 12 slowed the field and again brought the pack back to Dahle’s rear bumper.

When the race resumed, Cummins again went upstairs and bolted by Mattick and Hillson and now was second. Cummins reeled around the top and pulled alongside Dahle for the lead. Cummins stole the spot on lap fourteen and stretched it out.

Cummins survived a couple of late race cautions to win his third of the season. Dahle was second with Hillson third. Mattick finished fourth and Todd Scharkey was the fifth place finisher.

In the S&S Auto Salvage Hornets, Jake Bigelow stole the win from Casey Trom when he took the lead in turn four of the last lap for his third win in the Junior class. Terry Blowers outdueled Gary Stahl for win number five in the Senior class.

Next Friday is Fan Appreciation Night with $10 admission for the adults. It will also be Trick-or-Treat Night for the kids. Hot laps are at 7:00 p.m. with racing to follow.
