This week featured Deer Creek Speedway’s annual “Pink Out” night. The night is dedicated to raise money and awareness on breast cancer for Join The Journey. There were t-shirt sales, 50/50 and silent auction fundraisers and the push-up challenge for the five feature race winners.

The program was presented by Rochester Golf Carts, Ulven’s Hardware, Wagner Trucking and Evans Printing. Another big field of 120-racers assembled and put on another fantastic show.

Karlie Wagner and Drew Williams led the 26-car field to the green in the Dirt Doctor Trucking WISSOTA Midwest Modified feature. Williams jumped to the lead after a first lap caution. Jason Haugerud gave chase, but Austin Schrage quickly challenged.

Schrage slipped to second and then grabbed the lead on lap four. Amundson followed to second while Ryan Wetzstein raced Williams for third. A caution on lap seven closed the field back up.

On the restart, Wetzstein took off and got to second and Dan Wheeler was on the charge and was up to third. Another caution on lap 10 slowed the race, but Wheeler had a great restart and got to second. Wheeler drove past Schrage for the lead on lap 14, but a yellow flag negated the pass.

Wheeler chased Schrage until lap 15 when he finally took over. Wheeler shook off one more restart to get his first win at the track this season and a clean sweep. Wheeler them volunteered track entertainment manager Shannon Merkel to do the push up challenge for him Merkel reeled off 21 push-ups worth one dollar a piece for Join the Journey. Wetzstein finished in second with Amundson third while Schrage was fourth and Don Schaefer was fifth.

The Adams Graphix WISSOTA Street Stock feature was a doozy. Bernie Adams led early with a big pack of cars behind him. Ryan Jacobson worked to second as Kory Adams and Blake Adams were door-to-door for third.

Kory Adams zipped past Jacobson and Bernie Adams for the lead on lap six. Jacobson, Bernie Adams and Blake Adams were three wide for second. Blake Adams moved to second but eyes were now on Travis Krause and Zach Elward who were moved into the top five on the top of the track.

Blake Adams got the lead on lap nine, but it was Krause and Elward who put on a show. Krause was up to third and then took second with Elward right behind him. Krause rode the rim to the lead while cars behind him tangled. Elward was tagged with the yellow as Bernie Adams and Braden Brauer were left locked up on the frontstretch.

Krause led, but Blake Adams made one last charge on the final lap. Adams got close, but Krause took the win by .067. Krause then did 28-push-ups for Join the Journey. Blake Adams, Kory Adams, NickSchwebach and Jacobson finished out the top five.

Another huge field of 37-National Fleet Graphics USRA B-Mods were whittled down to their 26-car field through five heats and two b-mains. Dan Hovden redrew the pole and led all 18-laps to score the dominant win.

Nobody had anything for Hovden, even a couple of cautions did not slow him down when he picked up his sixth win overall this season. Hovden then performed 40-push-ups for Join the Journey in victory lane.

Jerry Young and Kadden Kath had a superb race for second with Young on top at the checkered flag. Nick Wagner had another good run in fourth and Dustin Kruse raced from 15th to fifth in the final rundown.

Brandon Duellman had already logged a lot of wheel time on Saturday before he arrived to the speedway. He was in Ohio on Saturday morning and made the drive back to Minnesota just in time to make the show. It paid off when he led all 20-laps of the Brauer Roofing WISSOTA Super Stock feature.

Duellman started outside of row one and led from the drop of the green flag. Neil Eckhart stayed close for a bit, but Duellman slowly edged away. A caution with five laps to go did not slow Duellman.

Duellman picked up the win and did 30-push-up in victory lane. Jeff Brauer edged past Eckhart after the lap 15 restart to claim second. Eckhart was third with Chad Gullixson fourth and Brian Fetting fifth.

Nate Wasmund used his front row redraw the lead the 27-car NAPA Auto care Centers USRA Modified feature. Keith Foss was close behind with Brad Waits and Blake Arndt behind them. Waits bolted to second on lap five and then set after Wasmund.

The lead duo was close on laps five and six. Waits used the low groove to steal the lead on lap eight. Wasmund made the pass back in turn two of the next lap, but Waits got back by to lead the lap. Adam Hensel entered the top five at this point.

Foss changed his line and went up top and found something. Foss got by Wasmund for second on lap 14 and quickly closed on Waits. The leaders then entered heavy lapped traffic and Waits worked them to perfection. Waits opened up a bigger lead, but late in the race the lead duo cleared the lapped cars.

Foss made an incredible run off of turn two on the final lap and quickly closed on Waits in the final two corners. Foss zoomed up to Waits, but came up short at the checkered flag in an exciting finish. Waits then had his wife Angela’s son Spencer do the push-up. Spencer clipped off 44 of them to help raise money for Join The Journey.

Foss would finish in second with Wasmund in the third spot. Hensel had raced with Wasmund but ended up fourth. Blake Arndt had his best run to date in his rookie season in the fifth position.
