Shaun Walski won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

This week was Tasseldega Nights time at Deer Creek Speedway and that meant free admission to all fans in attendance. The gift to fans was provided by the Minnesota Corn Growers Association and with huge support from the area county corn and soybean growers along with many agriculture related businesses.

The night was all about educating people on the Corn Growers and what they do. Also to inform the crowd on the benefits of Ethanol use in their motor powered vehicles. There were several displays to view for that purpose and all sorts of other activities to take in.

People took advantage of the free admission when a huge throng packed the stands to watch the racing action. Another stellar field of 106-cars filled the pit area in the five divisions that race weekly.

The racing world had a heavy hearts this week with the loss of two people. Rex Garr who raced in the area in the 1960s passed away on Monday. A day later, Jessica Miller, founder of Karsyn’s Krusaders and owner of the #45 Levi Nielsen USRA Modified, lost her life in a highway accident on Tuesday. Drivers lined the wall in turns one and two during the emotional opening ceremony tribute for those two individuals.

After the qualifying events were completed there was a short break in the action. At that time many of the drivers walked through the crowd with their helmets and raised $2,000 for the Miller family and Karsyn’s Krusaders.

Shaun Walksi took advantage of his number one redraw to lead the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod main event. Scott Demmer and Kadden Kath hung right with the leader in the beginning stages of the 18-lap race. This was a caution plagued race, but the racing was good when the green was out.

Kath challenged Walski for the lead on lap six and took the lead on lap eight. Parker Hale then raced Walski for second while Kath extended his lead a bit. Jim Chisholm charged from 17th and got to the top five on lap 10. The top three ran close on lap 11 and Walski used the top groove to reclaim the lead on lap 12.

Walski survived one last yellow on lap 14 to record his first win in almost two years in his second night out in his new Dirt Dueler car. Walski became the ninth different winner in nine nights of racing to start the year which is a new record. Kath finished in second with Hale in third. Jerry Young had a great run to finish in fourth with Chisholm fifth.

The USRA Modified feature was a dandy with Josh Angst and Jake Timm in row one for the 25-lap race. Timm jumped to the lead, but Angst went low and slid in front of Timm to lead lap one. Timm slid Angst right back to regain the lead while Dustin Sorensen stormed from eighth to third.

Timm and Angst kept their intense battle for the lead going. Angst slid Timm again, but Timm did not allow him by and Sorensen closed in to make it a three car tussle. Angst stayed up alongside Timm with Sorensen right on them on lap nine. Behind them the racing was just as good for fourth. Jason Cummins who started 12th and Brandon Aggen were door-to-door for that position.

Timm was finally able to break away from Angst, but Angst was under a serious challenge for second. Sorensen got by on lap 18 and tried to reel in Timm. Timm raced to his first win of the season with Sorensen and Angst second and third. Cummins was able to pass Aggen for fourth and Aggen was fifth.


Jake Timm won the USRA Modified feature.
