As the checkers flew it was Bleess with the win, Hale, Wheeler, Queensland and Benson rounded out the top five. The “B” Features were won by Daughters and Dustin Sorensen with Kath, Scott Demmer, Queensland and Alex Williamson winning the heat races. Also a big shout out to Miah Christenson who during an initial start caused a caution that was not caught by a race official. After the officials stated on the raceceiver that there was no call, Christenson moved to the back of the field letting the officials know who was at fault. This is what sportsmanship is all about. After pulling from Sioux Falls SD to race, take full blame for an on track incident. A big thank you to Christenson for this move and we look forward to having you race with our great racers anytime.
Mike Prochnow jumped out front in the Altenburg Construction WISSOTA Late Models at the drop of the green. Justin Sass and Adams Hensel battled briefly for second.
