First Time Winners Highlight Pink Out Night

Spring Valley, MN (June 18)

By: Todd Narveson

It was Pink-Out Night with Join The Journey at Deer Creek Speedway. The night helps raise awareness and money for the fight against breast cancer. There was a silent auction, raffles, 50/50 sales and a push-up challenge for the five feature winners.

Another good field of 100-cars signed in for the program that was presented by First Farmers & Merchants State Bank, Weber Auto Parts, Old Dutch along with Evans Printing & Publishing.

The Dirt Doctor Trucking WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds were first up for their 18-lap feature event. Ryan Goergen took the early lead but Mitch Weiss zoomed from seventh to challenge Goergen. Kadden Kath was also on the move and was in third on lap two.

Weiss stole the lead on lap three and Kath followed him to second on lap five. On lap eight, Kath threw a slide job on Weiss to take the lead, but Weiss charged to Kath’s inside in turn four to reclaim the lead. Kath executed another slider in turn two and was back out front. A yellow slowed the race on lap nine.

Kath took off from there and led the pack to the checkered flag for his first win at Deer Creek this season. Kath then did 43-push-ups worth $21 each for Join /The Journey. Nick Koehler was able to pass Weiss for second late in the race while Trevis Underdahl and Bill Steinberg were in the top five.

Ross Spitzer took off from row one to lead the Adams Graphix WISSOTA Street Stock feature. Kolton Brauer quickly moved from seventh to second while Nick Schwebach and Braden Brauer raced for third.

On lap four, Spitzer drifted up high and Kolton Brauer used the low groove to take the lead. While Kolton started to pull away, his older brother Braden raced with Spitzer for second.

While the leaders started to catch the back of the field, Aaron Gustafson spun and Spitzer had no place to go and made contact to bring out the caution. Despite the contact, Spitzer was able to continue, but Gustafson was done for the night.

Kolton Brauer ran a smooth line on the bottom of the track and led the rest of the race to score his first ever feature win. Kolton the did 40-push-ups in victory lane for Join The Journey. Braden Brauer ran second with Schwebach third, Spitzer fourth and Kory Adams was fifth.

Another big field of 38 Kid’s Dreams Come True USRA B-Mods were on hand. Five heat races and two B-Features were needed to determine the 26-car field for their 18-lap feature.

Joe Chisholm redrew the pole position inside of row one and he just plain dominated. Chisholm worked the top of the speedway and drove away from the rest of the competitors. Even when he caught the back of the pack Chisholm worked the lapped traffic to perfection.

Chisholm drove under the checkered flag first for his first ever win at Deer Creek. Chisholm then ripped off 84-push-ups for Join The Journey. The race behind Chisholm was good when Jackson Hale edged Brandon Hare for second and Alex Schubbe held off Colby Mann for fourth.

There were 10-drivers that started the Medieval Chassis USRA Stock Car feature and it was the race of the night and could be a candidate for race of the year. Travis Shipman took the early lead with Shawn Peter and Brayden Gjere second and third and Kyle Falck came from eighth to fourth.

The top four ran close and Gjere got to second and then threw a slide job at Shipman to take the lead on lap 11. Shipman crossed over and went low, but Gjere held on up front. Then Falck slipped past Shipman for second and lap 13.

Falck was right with Gjere, and on lap 17 Falck dove low in turn three and slid in front of Gjere to take the lead. Gjere dove low and repaid the slider and took the lead in turn two on lap 18.

Falck dove low again in turn three and it was a perfect slider to regain the lead. Gjere was not done and he came back to take the lead with another slide job in turn two. Falck again fought back to take the lead in turn three, but Gjere led once again out of turn four.

Falck dove low again and led when the white flag was displayed. One more time Gjere dove low and slid in front of Falck in turn two. The race still had two more turns and Falck executed yet another slider to take his third win in a row.

Falck did 20-push-ups in victory lane for Join The Journey. Gjere finished a close second with Shipman third. Chris Adams was fourth and Peter wound up fifth.

The NAPA Auto Care Centers USRA Modified feature also had a dominant performance by the winner. Aaron Benson started inside the front row and took off from the start. Benson opened up a large lead over A.J. Hoff while Keith Foss moved from ninth to third.

By lap seven, Benson had stretched his advantage to a full straightaway. Foss had got to second, but the driver on the move was Brandon Davis. Davis started 12th and got by Darwyn Karau to take fourth on lap eight.

Benson set a torrid pace while Foss was still quite a distance behind. Davis continued to move forward and passed Hoff for third on lap 16. Jim Chisholm who started 10th had now taken over fifth.

Even when Benson caught the back of the field, he negotiated the lapped traffic without any problems. Foss was able to cut the gap a bit, but it was not enough. Benson also got his first ever Deer Creek win and then did his car number in push-ups which is 24. Foss was second, Davis third, Chisholm was fourth and Hoff fifth.
