Thursday, July 30, 2009

First time drivers, first time winners and familiar faces highlited the race night Thursday at Norman County Raceway. Scott Beckman of Mahnomen enjoyed a successful night with two heat victories and two second place finishes in the features of 4-cylinders and purestocks. Shawn Dement, the NCR points leader won the 4-cylinder feature. Cody Erickson of Ulen won his first feature of the season at NCR in the Modfours after winning his heat race. Currrent national points leader ( thru 7-26) Dustin Strand raced past Travis Sauer and Cale Arneson with five laps remaining in the Midwest Mods for another feature win. Arneson and Sauer spent the first ten laps racing side by side before Strand cruised to the victory. Justin Olson won the caution filled purestock feature. Alex Engelstad of Beltrami took the lead with fourteen laps remaining and held off Jami Trautner for the feature win of Modifieds. Engelstad raced the bottom and Trautner raced the top of the track to complete the race program.
