Brauer Back on Top at Deer Creek Firecracker
SPRING VALLEY, MN – July 5, 2015: (Photos courtesy of Buck Monson Photo) Another great night of racing action was held on Saturday night with over 100 cars in the pit area and a spectacular fireworks display after the racing action on Trom Transportation night at the speedway. A special thanks to all of the businesses and individuals who contributed to the fireworks show. Fans and crews were treated to one of the best displays for almost 15 minutes after the races were completed.
The first feature of the night saw Corey Crapser and Cole Queensland in an epic battle for the win in the Wagner Trucking USRA B-Modifieds. Crapser took the early lead with Queensland working to his inside as the duo raced around the speedway. Queensland found a groove to his liking and on a lap ten restart pulled alongside for the lead only to have another caution fly and the cagy Crapser moved down on the ensuing restart to take away the line. Erik Kanz kept pace with the duo early and on the final restart on lap sixteen moved past Queensland to take over the second spot. Kylie Kath continued to show his strength taking home the fourth spot while Cole Denner worked through the field from his eleventh starting spot to finish fifth. Heat races were won by Trevor Fecht, Andrew Bleess, Eddie Schwope and Queensland
In the KIK Graphics WISSOTA Street Stock Feature Bernie Adams used his pole starting spot to jump out into the early lead with Durand Peterson in second. Danny Richards, Kory Adams and Mike Blowers put on another excellent battle for the third spot throughout most of the race. The trio slowly worked past Danny Hanson on lap five and each took their turn in the third spot over the remainder of the race always racing two wide and very frequently three wide as they raced for the spot. Up front though it was all Bernie Adams as he cruised home for the win over Peterson, Richards, K. Adams and Blowers. Zach Elward and Nick Schwebach took home the heat race wins.
Brad Seavers jumped out to the early lead in the Dirt Doctor Trucking WISSOTA Midwest Modified feature event with Casey Trom, Jeremy Misgen and Jared Boumeester three wide for the second spot for two laps. With two down Trom took control of the spot and quickly caught Seavers out front as a caution slowed the field. On the restart Trom took over the top spot as Dustin Scott now quickly worked into second. Scott got his shot on a restart and moved past Trom for the top spot on lap seven. Garitt Wytaske found the top side early on in the feature and by lap ten moved past Trom for the second spot after starting nineteenth on the field. Wytaske ran down Scott but then the groove started to slip away from him allowing Boumeester to sneak by for the second spot late in the race. At the finish it was Scott with the win, Boumeester, Wytaske, Robbie Franklin and Trom rounding out the top five. Heat races were won by Franklin, Cory Crapser and Boumeester
Ed Sanders led the Brauer Roofing WISSOTA Super Stock feature event for the first six laps until Jeff Brauer and Tommy Richards had worked through the pack from seventh and eighth to take over the top two spots. Brauer led running the lower part of the speedway while Richards ran up top. Richards pulled alongside of Brauer on lap ten as a yellow flew over the field. On the restart Brauer immediately moved up top in the corner and took away Richards line. Richards fought hard and they two battled for the next two laps until Brauer slowly started to pull away. At the finish it was Brauer with the win, Richards in second. Dave Solum had a great run finishing third ahead of Patrick Heikkinen who finished fourth after starting eleventh on the field. AJ Hoff rounded out the top five. Kevin Hager and Richards won the heat races.
The Final feature of the night was the NAPA AutoCare USRA Modified feature event with Cory Crapser jumping out to the early lead. Brent Larson, Bob Timm and Jake Timm had an entertaining race for the second spot for the first seven laps until Jake dropped back to fourth. Timm and Larson raced side by side as they started to encounter lapped traffic while Crapser slowly pulled away up front. Brandon Davis was working on Jake Timm for the fourth spot on lap twelve as Bob Timm made contact with a squirrely back marker damaging his left front allowing Davis to take over the third spot behind Larson. A caution on lap seventeen saw Crapser continue to lead while Davis worked past Larson for the second spot. Zack Vander Beek worked into the top five and with three laps left in the race Davis moved under Crapser for the top spot. At the finish it was Davis with the win ahead of Crapser, Vander Beek, Jacob Bleess and twelfth starting Les Duellman. Heat races were won by VanderBeek, Davis and Crapser.
