Tucker Williams won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

Temperatures didn’t make the 90s this week but mid-80s still felt plenty warm for week 11 of racing action at Chateau Speedway on Friday. The night's program was sponsored by Jay Kleemensen at Eagle Prairie Insurance in Blooming Prairie and the Austin Bruins. “Bruiser” the Austin Bruins Mascot was on hand to greet fans and take pictures with the kids. Some thrilling finishes made for some exciting races.

One feature race that was set up for a thrilling finish turned anti-climactic after a late caution.

The USRA Modified main event was setting to be a three-car battle between Jason Cummins of New Richland, Brandon Davis of Hayfield and Steve Wetzstein of West Concord. Davis took the early lead off the front row while Cummins moved into second out of row two. Wetzstein meanwhile started back in row three and had to work a bit to get up into the top three finally getting there just before halfway. Davis had opened up a nice cushion in the early laps before Cummins reeled him in just before they caught the back of the field.

With less than five laps left, Davis went low out of turn 4 to pass a car and Cummins went top shelf and rocketed around both to the front. While the two of them dealt with cars and each other, Wetzstein was closing up on the two in a hurry. He caught them with just over two to go and as he they cleared a car to the outside he went to the bottom and it was set up for a wild three-car battle to the checkers.

However, in the middle of turn 4 Wetzstein ended up sideways and was tagged for the caution. He briefly protested the call before heading off the track. Cummins was able to pull away from Davis for his second feature win of the season while Joe Horgdahl of Kasson came home third ahead of Kevin Stoa of Albert Lea and Joel Alberts of Mantorville.

Heat wins went to Davis and Blake Arndt of Brownsdale.


Jason Cummins won the USRA Modified feature.

In Out-Pace USRA B-Mod action, Tucker Williams of Rochester scored his first career Chateau Speedway feature win. Williams and Taylor Ovrebo of Wells lined up on the front row for the main event with Ovrebo leading a little more than the first half of the race.

Williams made several runs at Ovrebo using the outside line several times to try and make the move for the lead, but it was the inside line on lap twelve that proved to be the winning combination. Once he got to the front he stretched out the lead to score the win.

Kadden Kath of Owatonna made his way up to second but had to settle for the runner-up spot. Noah Grinstead of Austin, Cole Denner of New Hampton, Iowa, and Kobie Kath of Owatonna made up the rest of the top 5.

Williams also had a heat win on the night giving him a sweep. Meanwhile, Kadden and Denner took the other heat wins.

Up next for the track is another big weekend. There will be seven classes of cars next Friday, headlined by the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series featuring USRA Modifieds and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods with a 7:15 race time.
