Thursday, July 23, 2009

Area race fans enjoyed a fast night of racing, fast in terms of time and speed. The entire race program was completed in two hours with 74 cars enjoying the fast track at NCR. Nick Duncan of Glyndon returned to NCR to claim the feature in the 4-Cylinders after a second place in his heat. Rob VanMil of Hawley was a double winner in the ModFours. It was his second straight feature win at NCR. The Midwest Mods brought the fans to the edge of their seats with Bryce Borgen (#7 of Perley) leading the race and building a lead with five laps to go. Unfortunately for Borgen, a yellow caution created a re-start and as he continued to hold his lead, he slid up in turn four and opened the bottom lane for NCR points leader Dustin Strand who took advantage of the opportunity and raced his way to another feature victory. Borgen would finish second. Justin Olson of Thief River Falls returned to familiary territory, winning both the heat and feature race Thursday night. The night came to a strong finish in the Modified feature as Jason Grimes, Alex Engelstad and Blake Jetvig raced side by side, two lanes of racing and tail to nose around the track. Grimes kept Engelstad from getting around on the bottom and Jetvig ( winner of the last two weeks feature) raced up top the final five laps. Grimes would claim his first feature of the season at NCR, Jetvig crossed the line just ahead of Engelstad to cap off a fantastic night of racing. Here's all the results:
