Week 3, USRA brings some fast friends to The Creek

Week 3, USRA brings some fast friends to The Creek

Spring Valley, MN

May 15th, 2021: Eric Thronson

115 racers enjoyed a smooth fast track at The Creek.

Napa Auto Care Centers USRA Modifieds:  18 racers, including a few for the first time this year, made for great racing as usual and after two fast heats, the feature provided another family with a racing first, lifetime memory for Ryan Wetzstein in the Families #90, to become an A-Mod FEATURE WINNER, at Deer Creek Speedway! With his, “greatest fan”, Grandfather Dave Wetzstein joining him in Tralo Victory Lane, Ryan used the Pole to jump out front, hang it out on the cushion, occasionally scraping some dirt off the wall and run away from the field after the lap 13 caution. Jason Cummins was 2nd, Alex Williamson 3rd, Joel Alberts 4th and Michael Truscott from Chippewa Falls, WI finished 5th from his 10th starting position.

Eagles Club of Rochester, USRA Late Models:  The first of four visits to Deer Creek brought 19 screaming Late Models and the fans loved to see them once again. After 3 heats the field was set for a blistering pace on the smooth track for the feature, we did have a few cautions for the 20 laps with Matt La Duke setting the pace out front. As 2nd -8th we’re at times door to door, running every line possible to catch the 17 of La Duke. It wasn’t until a late caution brought the field back together, that Lance Hofer in the #11 finally found a little more bite off of turn two and made the pass for the lead to take the checkers with less than a car length between he and La Duke. In Tralo Victory Lane he shared, “La Duke lives right down the road and we help each other out so it’s fun to race with him as we can count on it being clean every time”. They were having a great time and put on an awesome show for the fans.  

Wissota Super Stocks:  Ryan Wiome was flying as he made it two in a row as he took the feature win. With the battle for 2nd—5th behind him was tight at times, Spencer Stock, lost an engine midway, to end the caution free streak, but once underway again the green flag racing was fast and clean. A real credit to the level of talented Drivers.

USRA B-Mods: Jim Chisholm continued his winning ways at The Creek, making his 3rd straight trip to Tralo victory lane. Although, this trip had to start from the 9th position on the grid. Kullen Kath started on the pole with Phillip Dunbar to his outside, Dustin Kruse behind him with Brody Shaw outside row 2.

However, Elward, Wytaske, Hare, Schubbe, Grinstead, Chisholm and Jett Sorensen were lurking in the field, just to name a few. 

What a feature race, we had a few cautions that bent up a few race cars, but once we were green, these drivers put on an exhibition. Everyone in this class charges to the front, cars that handle well arguably make this another class that is really fun to watch. In the end after Garrit Wytaske drove his way to the front and lead for many laps, it was Jim Chisholm who found his way from 9th to take the checkered flag, to make it Back to Back to Back feature wins at The Creek. So many drivers in this class are fast and race clean, so it raises the level of competition every week. Who’s going to be the one to outrun the 24C?

Adams Graphix, Wissota Street Stocks:  What a race by Dustin Doughty and the entire top 10. Doughty agreed in the Tralo Victory Lane, “we’re having fun now”, as he made it two in a row at the Creek, coming from 8th for the win. Richards, Elward, Brauer, both Adams, Jacobsen, Brauer and Williamson made it another awesome Deer Creek feature. Close racing all the way to the checkered flag was so impressive and fun to watch.

Dirt Dr. Trucking, Wissota Midwest Mods:  19 racers attacked the fast track at the Creek, with a few new faces making their first appearance and for Brandon Jensen in his 21B from Ellsworth, MN. It was worth the trip. Brandon used his 7th starting position to win the feature after a few cautions took out a few of the drivers. He had to run a mistake free race to outrun Trevis Underdahl, Adam Martinson, Peter Leuschner, Dylan Goettl, Ryan Doergen and both Kath brothers to grab his first win at The Creek this season, I’m sure we’ll see him again soon.
