- Norman County Raceway -
Thursday, July 26, 2007

Coming off the biggest week of the season, there was no let-down for area race fans Thursday night at the Norman County Raceway in Ada. A 70 car field and 592 paid attendance , again, enjoyed great racing! Many times, cars on the track were three and four wide with very few cautions and super driving. It was Shayne Laske continuing with his "run" at NCR, Laske won his seventh feature race in nine events in the Mod Four class. In the Purestock feature, Paul Olson of Barnesville and Tim Shiek of Fargo raced side by side for three of the final four laps, in the final lap Olson pulled away out of the second corner and took the feature. Olson was second to Shiek in the last two weeks feature at NCR. Daniel Bolstad of BattleLake won the 4Cylinder feature. Karl Tollefson raced his way toward the front in the Midwest Mod feature. Following a caution flag, Tollefson took the lead before holding off Arvid Broden on another re-start. Tollefson would eventually pull away from the field in the final five laps and win his second feature of the season. The Modifieds was Brian Strand move through traffic after starting in row four before holding back Blake Jetvig for the feature win.
Here's all the results from Thursday's race.
