Schott snares first USRA Modified win at Chateau Raceway
by Todd Narveson
LANSING, Minn. -- After a rain-out last week, the pit area was packed with 104 cars at the Chateau Raceway Friday.
The L&D Ag USRA B-Mod feature started off badly as Mike Yeager got pinched to the top off the track and went off the end of turns 1-2. His car dug in a rolled over several times, but fortunately Yeager was unhurt in the crash. It took three attempts to get the first lap completed, and when they got it in Cresco, Iowa's Brian Schrage and Scott Demmer were up front.
There were five yellow flags in the first four laps and five laps were knocked off the scheduled 18-lap race. The race finally ended up going to a green-white-checkered finish and Schrage took the win with Jacob Bleess second. Kylie Kath, Leon Mulder and Ben Moudry finished out the top 5.
Lucas Schott of Chatfield dominated the French’s Repair & Fabrication USRA Modified 25-lapper. Schott started on the pole and led all 25 laps for his first win in Lansing. Even a late-race yellow on lap 23 did not faze “Cool Hand Luke” as he took off and finished first in front of Todd Scharkey and Jason Cummins. Brandon Davis and Brandon Aggen rounded out the top 5.
