It was another exciting night of racing action Friday Night at Chateau Raceway in Lansing.

Kadden Kath of Owatonna scored his fourth feature win of the season in Out-PAce USRA B-Mod action. Kath started front row but had plenty of company all race long.

A.J. Zvorak of Blooming Prairie and Scott Demmer of Ellendale ran second and third just ahead of Kylie Kath as the field completed lap one. Demmer moved up to second on lap four and was making a bid for the lead two laps later when he and the leader made some contact. Demmer had to lift off the contact and that allowed Kylie Kath to move by him for second.

It was brothers dueling at the front as a caution came out with five laps to go. On the restart, Kylie Kath tried to dive hard to the bottom in turn one to make a bid for the lead but the car did not stick and he went around, bringing out yet another yellow. That moved Zvorak and Demmer back up on Kadden Kath's back bumper but that’s all they saw the rest of the way.

Zvorak won the battle for second with Nate Chodur of Lake Mills, Iowa, and Jayden Larson of Mankato making up the top five. Zvorak and Jett Sorensen of Rochester scored heat wins.

Kadden Kath won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

Putting a wrap on the night were the USRA Modifieds. Defending track champion Jason Cummins of New Richland continued his dominating season with his fourth feature win of the year. In fact despite taking a week off from the track last week, Cummins continues to lead the points as he looks to defend his title.

Mick Glenn of Minnesota City led the early laps off the outside of the front row with Cummins coming out of row two to second on lap two. The two ran side by side for a lap before Cummins finished off the pass. With most of the field running the middle or the bottom of the track the leader found the cushion more to his liking and went rim riding for the rest of the race and sailed off to the win.

Eventually, most of the rest of the field went to the top as well. Steve Wetzstein of West Concord, starting back in row five, put on a nice show as he worked traffic and rolled all the way up to a second place finish going by Greg Pfeifer Jr. of Austin for that spot on a late restart. Doug Hillson of Blooming Prairie and Darwyn Karau of Kasson came home fourth and fifth.

Cummins also had a heat win giving him his third sweep of the season. Pfeifer picked up a heat win on the night as well.

Jason Cummins won the USRA Modified feature.

Next Friday night the track will be hosting a benefit night for USRA Modified driver Jake Stark. Stark has been racing through some health issues having been diagnosed with Stage 2 Melanoma (skin cancer) on his head earlier this year. A silent auction and a 50/50 drawing are among the fund-raising efforts on the night to help with the costs of dealing with the issue. More information can be found on the benefit's Facebook page.
