Dustin Sorensen won the USRA Modified feauture.

It was a perfect Spring evening Friday at the Chateau Raceway in Lansing, Minn., for the second week of action in the 2017 racing season, and a nice field of cars filled the pits.

A short field of just eight Out-Pace USRA B-Mods put on a nice tight competitive feature event. Jett Sorensen of Rochester started on the pole and took the early lead battling with fellow front row starter Jayden Larson of Mankato. The two dueled for a half a dozen laps along with J.T. Wasmund of Pine Island before Larson took over the top spot.

Wasmund actually nosed out Larson for second on lap three before Larson went back by for the spot and than to the lead. Wasmund was persistent, however, and hung tough and at the halfway point of the 18-lap race moved past Sorensen for second and set his sights on Larson again. Wasmund pulled up on him and the two ran nose to tail for several laps.

With five laps to go, Wasmund made the winning pass as he scored his first feature win of the young season. Larson held on for second ahead of the lone heat winner, Kadden Kath of Owatonna.


J.T. Wasmund won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

In USRA Modified action, Dustin Sorensen of Rochester, who picked up his first career feature win in the class last Friday night, added a second to his résumé. Sorensen drew the outside of the front row for his starting spot and went right to the lead. While picking his way through traffic as he lapped the back half of the field, Sorensen maintained a nice advantage over runner-up Jason Cummins of New Richland. Steve Wetzstein of West Concord, Keith Tourville of Webster, Wis., and Greg Pfeifer Jr. of Austin made up the rest of the top five. Cummins and Wetzstein had the heat wins.

Racing action continues next Friday night with action scheduled to get under way at 7 p.m.
