Keith Cumming, Greenish, Minnesota (June 15) Overcast skies and cool temps and rain in the area kept racers and fans guessing as to whether or not the Greenbush Race Park would be able to get their race program in. But the Race Park only received intermittent light sprinkles and was able to get the night under way with a little extra track packing. But before the rains came back cutting the evening short, fans were treated to a couple of exciting features with some fast clean racing.
The Pure Stock feature was up first and they would send 10 of 12 cars to take the green. Bryon Berger of Badger, Mn., started fourth and would lead the first lap with A.J. Lane of Williams, Mn., a close second. Lane was never more than a couple of car lengths from Berger and would challenge for the lead a few times but each time Berger held off Lane. The races only caution came with two to go and set up a green, white, checkered finish. Berger got a good restart and went on to get his first win of the year while Lane came home second. Chris Thomas of St. Malo, Mb., would finish third and win his heat with the other heat win going to Jeremy Anderson of Newfolden, Mn.
Ten cars would take the green for the Lightning Sprint feature, and polesitter Kyle Cole of Warroad, Mn., would shoot out to the early lead. Alan Truscinski of Greenbush, Mn., would take the second spot. Just like in the Pure Stock feature, Cole and Truscinski never got more than a couple of car lengths apart and Truscinski would challenge for the lead but each time Cole would shut the door. A caution with three to go would bunch up the field and with two to go Truscinski would finally get by Cole coming out of corner four. Kelsi Pederson of East Grand Forks, Mn., would also get by Cole. Truscinski would go on to get the win and sweep, while Pederson would finish second and Cole third. Mike Schmiedeberg of Lake Bronson, Mn., picked up the other heat win.
John Current of Wilton, Mn., lead flag to flag to get his second win in a row in the 4 Cylinder feature. Nick Jesson of Bemidji, Mn., finished second and Jarod Guillemette of Karlstad, Mn,. third.
The featured race of the evening would be the Duane “Duggan” Nelson memorial for the Midwest Modifieds. 15 of 16 cars would take the green flag for the 25 lap race and outside polesitter Hunter Hougard of Warren, Mn., would get the early lead. Like the other features this one too had great side by side racing up front. But early cautions would slow the pace. When the race did get going it would be Hougard having to hold of veteran racer Lance Schill of Langdon, N.D. The duo would run door to door but Hougard would maintain his lead. A caution on lap 14 would stack up the field once again but the light rains would return also. The cars were sent to the pits to wait it out but after about 10 minutes the racing was called off for the night. This race is not over, the remainder will be made up this next weekend.
Up next for the Greenbush Race Park will be the first visit of the summer for the NLRA Late Models, along with the completion of the “Duggan” Nelson Midwest Modified feature and double features for the Streets and Modifieds. Also racing will be the Pure Stocks and Outlaw Mini Mods. Pit gates open at 4:30, grandstand opens at 5:30, cutoff for the draw is at 6pm with racing starting at 7pm sharp.
