Brandon Davis won the USRA Modified feature.

Tasseldega Nights was the prime attraction this week at Deer Creek Speedway. The corn and soybean growers of Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Olmsted, Southwest Wabasha and Mower Counties along with the Minnesota Corn Growers Association offered free admission on Saturday.

The night was meant to educate people on the corn growers and the ethanol industry in the state of Minnesota. There was much to see and do for fans to learn more about the corn growers. Compeer Financial was also a presenting sponsor for the evening.

The Out-Pace USRA B-Mods had another stout field of 32-cars sign in this week. Four heats and one “B” Main whittled the field down to 24 cars field for their 18-lap feature.

Cole Christensen and Eric Thill led the pack to the green, but second row starter Dan Hovden quickly moved in to challenge Christensen for the lead. Kadden Kath jumped to third before a yellow came out for Ben Moudry who slowed.

On the restart, Hovden took off while Kath moved to second. Christensen bounced off the wall in turn two and dropped back a few positions. Ryan Maitland worked his way past Joe Chisholm to fourth on lap 10, then another yellow flew for a stalled Christensen.

Hovden led Kath on the start while A.J, Hoff and Maitland raced for third. Hoff grazed the wall on lap 14 and that allowed Maitland to take the spot. Hovden appeared to be in control of the race, but a caution on lap 15 set up a wild three lap dash.

Hovden led on the restart, but Kath hung right with him. Kath made a serious bid for the lead and got alongside Hovden. Hovden held on to score the win with Kath a close second. Maitland finished in third with Hoff and Scott Demmer fourth and fifth.

The USRA Modified feature got off to a rough start with a five car pile-up in turn four. Pole sitter Dustin Kruse was penalized one row for the bad start and that moved Dustin Sorensen to row one alongside Brandon Davis. Josh Angst went pit side, but was able to return and become a factor.

On the start, Sorensen threw a slide job at Davis to take the lead in turn two. Davis shot to the bottom and took the lead lap one. J.T. Wasmund and Jason Cummins followed the leaders and Joel Alberts got to fifth on lap three.

On lap five, Sorensen again threw a slider in turn two to take the lead, but Davis fired right back to regain the lead. A yellow then came out to close everyone back together. Davis and Sorensen were primed to continue their torrid battle, but the caution came out on lap seven.

Davis led Sorensen with Wasmund, Cummins and Jacob Bleess in the top five. Angst had charged from the tail and was all the way back up to sixth at this point. Bleess came alive on the start and charged to third by Wasmund while Alberts rallied past Cummins to get back in the top five.

Davis and Sorensen rocketed away from the pack. Davis opened up a bit of a lead, but Sorensen found something and reeled Davis back in. Bleess, Alberts and Wasmund were close for third with Angst right behind them. Sorensen caught Davis on la p17 and the race was on again.

The lead duo was close on lap 20 when they ran into lapped traffic. Sorensen made things interesting, but Davis held on for his fifth win of the year and fourth in a row. Bleess was third with Alberts fourth and Angst’s charge from the tail got him to fifth.
