Jacob Bleess won the USRA Modified main event.

This week’s program at Deer Creek Speedway featured the annual “Pink Out” Night with Join The Journey to raise awareness and money in the fight against breast cancer. There was a 50/50 drawing, donation buckets and a driver push-up challenge for the feature winners. Weber Auto Parts and the Osage Co-op helped support the program.

Twenty-seven USRA B-Mods took the green flag for their 18-lap feature. Jim Chisholm drew the pole position and took the early lead. Brandon Hare stole the lead for a moment, but Chisholm drove back by to reclaim the top spot.

Chisholm opened up the lead and left the pack to battle it out for second. Hare, Garitt Wytaske and Kadden Kath were in the mix while Dustin Kruse cracked the top five.

Kruse worked the low line and got to fourth on lap 10. Kruse kept up his charge and passed Hare for third on lap 13. A caution slowed the race and on the restart Kruse drove to second. A caution with one lap to go set up a green, white and checkered finish.

Chisholm led the final dash for his third win in a row this year. If you go back to 2019 this was his sixth straight at the speedway. Kruse finished second followed by Hare in third. Kath finished in the fourth spot but was later disqualified, moving Joe Chisholm to fourth and Eric Thill to fifth.


Jim Chisholm won the USRA B-Mod main event.

Twenty-six USRA Modifieds answered the bell for their 25-lap main event. A yellow on the initial start brought a complete restart. Pole sitter Jacob Bleess took off into the lead followed by Lucas Schott, Josh Angst and Brandon Davis.

Davis raced the low line to take third from Angst before the races second caution came out on lap two. The top three were close when the race resumed. Bleess roared around the top side, while Schott ran low to challenge.

Schott took the lead on lap five, but Bleess rallied on the top side and pulled even with Schott once again. The lead duo remained even with Bleess on the extreme high line and Schott low. Davis reeled in the two and it became a three car tussle while the leaders entered some lapped traffic.

Schott surged back out front on lap 15 and Davis who also used the low groove now challenged Bleess for second. Bleess continued to blast the top side and again drove up even with Schott with Davis right there. Schott took the lead briefly and then the trio went three wide for the lead to end lap 20.

Bleess never gave up on the top and snagged the lead again on lap 21. Bleess led the final four laps to take his second win of the season. Davis ended up in second with Schott third. Dustin Sorensen raced from 12th to fourth and Cory Crapser came from 11th to fifth.
