Jason Cummins won the USRA Modified feature.

Mother Nature again tried to wreck the party at Deer Creek Speedway. Rain began to fall during the heat races, creating a one-hour delay.

This week’s event was presented by Advanced Disposal, Podein’s Power Equipment, Weber Auto Parts and Pfister Seed. There were 104 cars signed in to race in the five divisions.

J.T. Wasmund led the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods until turn four of the first lap when he spun. Several cars were collected and Wasmund was done for the night. Jim Chisholm took the lead from there with Jerry Young and Dustin Kruse on his heels.

Kruse took second but Young continued to apply pressure. Chisholm led after a caution, but Young was right ion his outside and Kruse was there also. Another caution would slow the pace and on the start Kruse again took second away from Young.

On lap eight, Chisholm, Kruse and Young were three abreast for the lead. Kruse led lap 8, but spun in turn three and the caution came out. Chisholm was charged with the yellow and Kruse got the lead back.

Kruse held off Young at the line for his second win of the season. Miah Christensen raced to third and Ben Moudry rallied from 16th to fourth. Shaun Walski would round out the top five.


Dustin Kruse won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

Cory Bruggeman and Owen Grube led the 26-car field to the green for the Napa Auto Care Centers USRA Modified feature. Bruggeman took the lead with Jason Cummins and Brad Waits second and third. The top three pulled away in the early stages and had a great race going on.

Cummins took the lead on lap seven, but Bruggeman drove back by on lap eight. Cummins drove by again and now Waits took second on lap12. Lucas Schott was on the move from the 11th spot and took fourth on lap 14. A caution on lap 17 was brought out and Waits was sent to the tail for getting into a lapped car.

Cummins led and Schott bolted to second with Keith Foss to third. Dustin Sorensen got to fourth and closed on Foss at the conclusion of lap 19. Schott challenged Cummins for the lead on lap 20 and a yellow came out to slow the race. Another yellow on the start for a seven car pileup stacked things up.

The last five laps were really good when Schott tried to wrestle the lead away from Cummins. Schott used the low groove and led lap 23 by a scant .001-seconds. Schott also led lap 24 when the leaders came to the white flag.

Cummins charged hard on the top side of turn three and the race was again on. Cummins glided by in turn four to steal his sixth win of the season at Deer Creek Speedway and 14th overall of the season. Schott was second with Sorensen in third. Josh Angst had a late race rally to fourth and Foss was fifth.
