Steve Wetzstein poses with his son, Ryan, after winning the USRA Modified feature on Friday, June 14, at the Chateau Speedway in Lansing, Minn.

Friday night's action at Chateau Speedway, sponsored by GT Construction, was some of the best of the season. A great field of cars filled the pits f with two- and three-wide racing highlighting each and every feature.

Steve Wetzstein of West Concord drew a front row starting spot outside of Kevin Stoa of Albert Lea for the USRA Modified feature. Wetzstein got the better jump on the drop of the green and shot to the front on lap 1. Stoa fell in line second just ahead of Jason Cummins of New Richland. Josh Angst of Winona, making his first appearance at the track this season, moved up to fourth on lap 2.

Three cautions in the race's first 11 laps slowed the pace some, but once they restarted after that final caution they ripped through the final 14 laps.

Wetzstein stretched out his lead while Angst and Cummins went side by side for second as they shuffled Stoa behind them. Angst took control of the spot and Cummins was soon joined by Brandon Davis of Hayfield who had picked his way forward after starting back in row 5. The pair ran the final half-dozen laps side by side with Cummins running the top of the track and Davis on the bottom.

The third place position changed several times but at the end it belonged to Cummins. Davis took fourth followed by Stoa. It was the first time this season that Davis did not go to victory lane  at Chateau.

Angst and Greg Pfeifer Jr. of Austin took heat wins.

Brandon Hare of Elma, Iowa, claimed his second Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature win of the season as he led flag to flag after coming off the outside of the front row. Kadden Kath of Owatonna was running second early in the race when he got a little loose out of turn 4 on lap 7 and came down into the middle of a three-wide scramble for position. His contact caused several cars to spin, bringing out the fourth of five cautions in the race and sending him to the tail end for the next restart.

Noah Grinstead of Austin, who started on the pole, moved back up to second and out-dueled Scott Demmer of Ellendale for the runner-up spot. Alex Schubbe had a solid run coming from a sixth row starting spot to finish fourth just ahead of Kath who rebounded for a top-five finish.

A.J. Hoff, last week's feature winner, went out on the lap-7 caution had a heat win on the night as did Kath.


Brandon Hare won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

The highly anticipated Inaugural Chateau Speedway Hall of Fame Night and Induction Ceremony is next Friday, June 21. The induction ceremony will be at intermission. The first green flag of the night is scheduled for 7:15 p.m.
