A hot and sultry day greeted race enthusiasts at Deer Creek Speedway this week. A “Christmas In July” celebration was held along with the make-up date for the kid’s box car races and the annual fireworks display that were rained out a couple of weeks ago.

This week’s event was presented by the Essig Agency, Titan Pro, Osage Coop and Blake Adams Racing. A big crowd was on hand for the show which would feature a season high 135-race cars.

The Adams Graphix WISSOTA Street Stocks hit the speedway first for their 18-lap feature. Zach Elward led the 15-car pack to the green flag and would lead the race early on. Braden Brauer challenged Elward with Blake Adams and Jason Newkirk in the mix.

Elward and Brauer remained close for the first eight laps while Adams had cleared Newkirk and joined the party up front. Adams slipped past Brauer for second on lap 11 and battled for the lead two laps later. Adams dove low and pulled alongside the leader, but a caution flag flew and set up a two lap dash to the finish.

The race up front heated up again when Adams again went low on Elward. They went side-by-side in turn three on the final lap and raced each other hard. There was some contact in turn four and it Was Adams who came out on top for his fourth win of the season. Elward was second with Brauer third, Newkirk was fourth and Kory Adams fifth.

Dan Nissalke did not waste any time in the Brauer Roofing WISSOTA Super Stock feature. Nissalke started third and led lap one with pole sitter Kevin Hager in second. Nissalke quickly opened up a huge gap on the rest of the 15-car field.

Nissalke led the caution free race all the way to the checkered flag for his first win and the clean sweep. Nissalke became the sixth different winner in six nights. Hager had a great run in second with Brandon Duellman, Jeff Brauer and Neil Eckhart in the top five.

A big field of 31-Dirt Doctor Trucking WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds took four heats and a B-feature to get down to the 24-car feature lineup. Tianna Mithun and Scott Simmons led the cars to the green for their 18-lap race.

Don Schaefer would lead lap one while Jason Vandekamp bolted from fifth to second. Josh Crary quickly got to third and Ryan Wetzstein was fourth. Vandekamp wasted no time when he drove past Schaefer for the lead on lap two. Schaefer would spin in turn four to trigger a yellow flag.

On the restart, Wetzstein charged to second while Vandekamp pulled away. Steven Amundson got to fourth and Nick Koehler cracked the top five. There was a big melee that started on the frontstretch on lap five. Several cars tangled and Christopher Deno ended up on his roof, but was uninjured.

The race resumed after the red flag and this time it was Koehler with the big move. Koehler got to fourth and then passed Amundson for third two lap later. That left Amundson and Crary to race for fourth.

Vandekamp went unchallenged the rest of the way for his first win of the season and is the seventh different winner to start the season. The win was huge for Vandekamp as it marked his 200th career feature win. Wetzstein finished second with Koehler, Amundson and Crary third through fifth.

Once again the National Fleet Graphics USRA B-Mods came out in drovers. A field of 40-cars went through five heats and two b-mains to reach their 26-car feature line-up. This one was a caution filled affair and it started off rough when it took two tries to start the race.

Kadden Kath led with Jackson Hale second. Jim Chisholm got by Hale for second with Jake Timm and Jerry Young close behind. There was a yellow o lap six. It then took three tries to get the race going again. When the race got going again the leaders made it a dandy.

Kath led, but Chisholm challenged and took the lead on lap eight. Kath came back to lead lap nine, but Chisholm fired back to lead lap 10. Kath rallied one more time and got the lead again on lap 11. Meanwhile Troy Hovey moved to third while the leaders diced it up.

Kath led the rest of the way for his first win and the clean sweep. Kath is now the seventh different winner in seven nights this season. Chisholm ended up second with Hovey third. Jake Timm finished third in Zach Brom’s ride and Ryan Maitland was fifth.

The Napa Auto Care Centers USRA Modifieds produced a big draw with 35-cars signed in. The ran four heats and two b-mains to whittle the pack to a 26-car field for their 25-lap main.

Jacob Bleess took off from the pole and was chased by Joel Alberts. Dustin Sorensen got past Brandon Aggen for third and Brandon Davis was up to fourth. A caution came out on lap four to group the field up tight again.

Bleess took off on the start while Sorensen darted past Alberts for second and brought Davis along to third. Bleess streaked away from the pack and opened up a big lead. Then the leaders caught the back of the field on lap 15 and things got interesting in a hurry.

Sorensen and Davis closed in on Bleess in heavy lapped traffic. Davis slipped past Sorensen for second on lap 17 while the lead trio diced through traffic. Davis then stole the lead from Bleess on lap 19 before a caution one lap later would set up a five lap shootout.

Davis took off while Jake Timm made a charge to third. Timm then took over second but Davis had checked out. Davis picked up his first win of the season and a clean sweep to boot. Timm finished second with Sorensen third, Bleess fourth and Alberts was fifth.
