Schott and Kanz Continue Early Season Strength at The Creek
Spring Valley MN – May 10, 2015: (Photos courtesy of Gulbranson Photo and Buck Monson Photo) After a week of solid rain the crew was able to put together another good racetrack and with the help of the drivers room was found in the pit area for all the racers that showed even with unusable portions of the pits due to saturated grounds.
The Dirt Doctor Trucking WISSOTA Street Stocks pulled onto the speedway first for their feature event. Brad Seavers and Don Schaefer raced for the top spot. Dan Wheeler and Jared Boumeester were close by in a battle for third. Seavers was credited with lap one but Wheeler quickly took over the spot on the second lap. Boumeester followed Wheeler through into second on lap three with Seavers holding onto the third spot. Josh Crary sat in fourth with Dustin Scott in the top five early on. With seven laps completed Seavers pressured Boumeester for the second spot while Scott worked past Crary for fourth. With ten down Wheeler was out to a really large lead while Scott and Seavers raced for third. Scott took over third on lap eleven with the first caution flying on lap thirteen. On the restart Wheeler led with Scott moving into the second spot. Seavers, Robby Franklin and Jason Born were in a tight battle for the fifth spot as the laps wore down. At the finish it was Wheeler with the win, Scott, Boumeester, Crary and Seavers rounded out the top five. Heat races were won by Scott and Don Schaefer
The KIK Graphics WISSOTA Street Stocks ran their feature next with Troy Voth jumping into the early lead. Fred Prudoehl sat in second early on. With two down Bernie Adams was in third while Mike Blowers, Kory Adams and Danny Richards raced for fourth. On Lap three Richards moved into third and quickly took second away from Adams. With four complete Richards kept his charge to the front and pulled alongside of Voth for the lead. Richards took over the top spot and never looked back. Kory Adams, Blowers and Schwebach continued to battle for the third spot now as they sat on Voth’s rear bumper. With eight complete Schwebach finally took control of the runner up position. Adams and now Voth battled for the third spot with Blowers in fifth. With ten down Adams took over the third spot with Voth and Blowers racing for fourth. Blowers took over the spot and hunted down Adams to take over the third spot with two to go. At the finish it was Richards with the win. Schwebach, Blowers, Adams and Voth rounded out the top five. Heat races were won by Bernie Adams and Blowers.
The Wagner Trucking USRA B-Modifieds had the caution fever tonight. Andrew Bleess jumped into the lead from his front row starting spot. Cory Crapser and Erik Kanz were close behind in second. On lap two Kanz moved under Bleess to take over the lead while Kylie Kath pulled alongside of Crapser for the third spot. The caution fest started on lap three with the first yellow. Over the next four laps the yellow waved a lot eventually causing officials to drop five laps after the fifth green flag incident brought out the yellow hanky. After clicking off a couple laps Shaun Walski took over the second spot behind Kanz. The Final caution flew on lap ten causing officials to call for a green white checker dash to the finish. Kanz took home the checker with Walski and Kath in a tight battle for second. At the finish Walski, Kath, Crapser and Brandon Hare rounded out the top five behind repeat winner Kanz. Heat races were won by Trevor Fecht, Crapser, Ben Moudry and AJ Zvorak
The Brauer Roofing WISSOTA Super Stocks pulled onto the track with Harlan Morehart and Neil Eckhart racing for the early lead. Eckhart took control of the race until his mount started smoking hard on lap two bringing out the caution. On the restart AJ Hoff took the lead with Jeff Brauer already working into second. Brian Fetting sat in third with Tommy Richards in the fourth spot. Another caution flew with two complete. On the restart Brauer took over the lead with Fetting working into the second spot. By lap four Richards moved into the third spot. Another caution flew on lap nine with Brauer leading on the restart. Richards took over the second spot running the high line on the speedway with Brauer working the middle of the track. Brauer stayed strong up front even with a sick sounding motor which he stated was running on seven cylinders. Brauer took home the win followed by Richards, Fetting, Ed Sanders and Dave Solum. Heat races were won by Brauer and Richards.
The NAPA AutoCare USRA Modifieds were up for the final feature of the night. As the feature rolled onto the track the track lights were turned on for the final race which was completed just about 8:30 for a nice quick show on this Mother’s Day Weekend. Jake Timm and Jacob Bleess battled hard for the first two laps until Timm took control of the race. Joel Alberts sat in third early while Lucas Schott and Keith Foss raced for the fourth spot. With four down Schott took over the third spot running around the bottom of the speedway. Schott moved alongside of Bleess as they raced for the second spot. With seven complete Foss moved past Alberts for the fourth spot while two laps later Brandon Davis worked past Alberts for a top five position. On lap twelve Davis moved past Foss for the fourth position. A caution on lap thirteen sat Timm with issues going into turn one with him and Schott making contact ending Timm’s night. On the restart Schott led with Davis and Bleess racing for the second spot. Davis took over the second spot and sat to the inside rear corner of Schott looking for a mistake to get around him. Schott was consistent on his line and on lap twenty Davis made a bid for the top spot that didn’t work giving Schott some breathing room over the remaining laps. At the checkers it was Schott with the win, Davis, Bleess, Foss and Alberts rounded out the top five. Heat races were won by Josh Angst, Bleess and Alberts.
