- Norman County Raceway -
Thursday, July 17, 2008

On a beautiful summer night, 630 fans were watching another great night of racing at the Norman County Raceway in Ada, Minnesota. Ryan Aho made the trip from Chisholm, Minnesota and claimed the Modified feature after winning the heat race earlier in the night. The feature was led by Alex Engelstad until Brian Strand ( NCR points leader) took the lead with 11 laps remaining. Strand held the lead until the #71 broke with 7 laps left. Aho held back Blake Jetvig and Engelstad for the victory.
Dustin Strand won another feature in the Midwest Mods. Strand started in the third row and raced into second place chasing Bryan Dyrdahl of Bagley until four laps remaining when Strand took the lead and cruised to another feature victory. The Purestocks continue to bring new drivers to the feature winner circle each week, this time it was points leader Justin Olson claiming the win. Troy Kuehl of Glyndon held off Frank Veert and Michael Griffin for the 4-Cylinder feature. Here's all the results:
