JAM THE STANDS a Huge Success – Racing action was Intense
SPRING VALLEY, MN – July 14, 2013: (Photo courtesy of Gulbranson Photo) Tonight saw a huge crowd on hand for the JAM THE STANDS night at Deer Creek Speedway thanks to the Minnesota Corn Growers and a large group of sponsors. Everyone who walked through the door got in free thanks to this great list of sponsors and they saw a great night of racing with some really close finishes. The track crew had to pull out all the stops again to provide a great racing surface as the rains that hit the speedway in the morning subsided during the lunch hour giving them just enough time to get the races started just shortly after 6:00.
The first feature of the night was the Left Lane Transport USRA B-Modified Feature. Brady Keefe and Alex Williamson raced it out of turn two for the lead on the start. Keefe took the early lead while Jacob Bleess moved under Williamson for second. With two completed Cole Queensland and Williamson raced for the third spot. Troy Hovey worked into the top five. A restart on lap three saw Keefe leading with Queensland and Bleess racing for second. Bleess kept the spot and started to pressure Keefe for the lead. Hovey worked under Queensland for third on lap four as Bleess took over the lead. Hovey moved into second on lap five while Williamson and Brandon Hare raced for fifth. With ten completed Bleess still led with Hovey in second. Queensland started to work low on Keefe for third when Keefe slid up the banking in turn three and pounded the wall bringing out a caution. On the restart Bleess led out of turn two however coming through four Bleess, Queensland, Hovey and Ben Moudry battled four wide for the lead. Bleess held on for the top spot while Queensland now sat in second. Queensland was running the top side of the speedway with Bleess running just slightly lower. Queensland then moved low as they came for the white flag. Entering turn one Queensland moved back to the top side of the speedway and pulled alongside of Bleess for the lead. Exiting turn four the momentum Queensland had on the top side of the speedway propelled him past Bleess for the win by a nose. The win was Queensland’s first win in the class. John VanMinsel won the “B” Feature while Bleess, Moudry, Keefe and Kadden Kath won the heat races.
