Spring Valley MN – July 19, 2014: (Photo courtesy of Jamie Goff Photography) A huge thank you to the Minnesota Corn Growers for their Tasseldega Nights promotion as a record setting crowd was on hand to take advantage of the free admission to the races. A special thanks to all of those organizations and businesses who were on hand to provide solutions and answer questions about corn production and ethanol production. Those on hand learned many facts about ethanol and corn production.
The first race of the night was the Six Two Graphics WISSOTA Street Stock Feature event. Fred Prudoehl and Kory Adams charged out of turn two trying to settle the top spot.
