Spring Valley, MN) June 22

Racing action was back in swing for the Deer Creek Speedway after last weekend’s rain out. A big field of 117-cars turned out for Pink-Out Night at the speedway. The annual event to raise money for Join The Journey and the fight to end breast cancer. A preliminary calculation estimated that over $10,000 was raised from various activities that took place.

This week’s event was presented by Old Dutch Foods, Weber Auto Parts, Evans Printing and Blake Adams Racing. Two drivers would cash in on some bonus money, while two others remain hot and another scored his first win of the season.

The Adams Graphix WISSOTA Street Stocks started off the main events with their 18-lap race. Jason Newkirk took the lead from Greg Lammers on lap one. Lammers then spun and collect eight other drivers and that damaged quite a few cars.

Braden Brauer took over the lead on lap two with Zach Elward in the mix. Elward got to second while Dustin Doughty then spun to bring out the yellow. Ryan Jacobsen challenged Newkirk for third on lap seven. Jacobsen got to third and then past Elward for second. Meanwhile, Dustin Doughty was on the charge from the tail and got to fourth.

Brauer extended his lead and Doughty continued his moves towards the front. Doughty got to second, but Brauer held a big lead. That went out the window with when the white flag was about to wave. George Schrumpf lost a tire to trigger a caution. This would set up a wild chain of events that took a bit of time to complete the race.

Doughty snagged the lead in turn one, but Elward got into Brauer and set off a seven car pile-up for another yellow that sent Elward to the rear. Two more yellows flew after that on the restart. The next restart, Brauer made contact with Doughty and that sent the entire pack into the crash. Brauer went to the back and the race was still not complete.

Finally Doughty completed the final lap and won his fourth of the season. Bernie Adams would finish in second with Jesse Stahl third. Kyle Siviesind had his best finish in fourth and Brent Holland was fifth.

After the Street Stocks took over 30-minutes to complete their feature, the National Fleet Graphics USRA B-Mods ran their race without a caution flag. Parker Hale jumped to the lead and took off to open up a big lead. Jim Chisholm worked from sixth to third on the second lap.

Hale was gone up front when Chisholm drove to second on lap three. Hale’s lead dwindled when Chisholm tracked him down. Ryan Maitland got to third on lap seven as Chisholm caught Hale up front.

Hale and Chisholm had a great battle for a few laps. Eventually Chisholm made the pass and drove on to his fourth win of the season. Hale finished second and Maitland was third. Nick Wagner finished fourth and Kadden Kath was fifth.

This week’s Crenlo WISSOTA Super Stocks had Brian Fetting lead the pack as Ryan Wiome moved to second and Dexton Koch followed him to third. Neil Eckhart got to fourth when a yellow came out and slowed the race.

Koch slid to the lead on the start, But Wiome and Fetting made it three wide. Wiome and Koch raced for the lead and Eckhart was now third. Eckhart slipped past Koch for second and then set after Wiome. Jeff Brauer started 14th and at this point was up to fourth.

Eckhart nabbed the lead on lap 11 and led the final nine laps for his second win of the season. Eckhart also scored a $300 bonus for winning the feature and the Brauer Roofing Super Stock Challenge. Next week’s challenge will be worth $150.

Brauer’s charge ended in second place with Wiome in third. Koch finished ibn fourth and Kevin Hager was fifth. With last week’s rain out there were four Hoosier tires given away by Coordinated Business Systems. Dennis Dunbar, Brandon Duellman, Kevin Hager and Harland Morehart were drawn at the pit meeting for the tires.

A mystery fan put up an extra $2400 into the Dirt Doctor Trucking WISSOTA Midwest Modified feature purse this week. The race distance was extended to 25-laps for the $1000 to win main event.

Ryan Wetzstein moved from row two and took the early lead. Dylan Goettl was second, but not for long when Mitch Weiss zipped past. Weiss reeled in Wetzstein and took the lead on lap six. The race’s lone caution flew on lap seven but it did not slow Weiss down.

Weiss took off and opened up the lead over the rest of the pack. Kylie Kath got to second on lap 8 but could not catch Weiss. Weiss drove another flawless race for his third win of the year and the big payday. Kath finished second while Ryan Goergen came from ninth to third. Jamie Davis finished fourth and Austin Schrage was fifth.

The 25-lap NAPA Auto Care Centers USRA Modifieds had Jason Cummins and Steve Arpin in row one. They made contact on the start and sent Cummins to spin into the infield. A complete restart was needed and this time Cummins took off.

Cummins would lead all 25-laps to win his first of the season. The race behind him was good when Arpin, Dustin Sorensen and Jacob Bleess raced for second. Joel Alberts got into that mix also and Brandon Davis was on the fly from the 12th spot.

Davis got stronger the longer the race went and passed Sorensen for second late in the race. Sorensen was third with Alberts in fourth. Bleess would round out the top five.

Tonight’s feature winners were also challenged with the Pink-Our Push Up Challenge. Each push-up that the drivers did was worth $31 with the proceeds going to Join The Journey.

Dustin Doughty did 20-push-ups and Jim Chisholm did his car number with 24. Neil Eckhart did 15 push-ups and Mitch Weiss got to 31. Then Jason Cummins was challenged by his daughter to do his car number which is 71. Cummins had the crowd go nuts when he ripped off 71 push-ups much to his daughter’s delight.
