Alex Engelstad, Josh Abrahamson were double winners at the Norman County Raceway in Ada, Minnesota Friday night. Alex Engelstad led from start to finish in his heat. In the Feature, Engelstad started in row four and made his way through traffic to contend with race leader Bryan Dyrdahl of Bagley. Dustin Strand drove his way into second place before ayellow caution moved him to the back. The caution came with five laps to go, Engelstad would pass Dyrdahl on the third corner after the restart and race to the victory. Josh Abrahamson of Moorhead also led start to finish in his heat and then drove a steady race in the feature to claim another victory at NCR. Abrahamson started in the third row and raced to the front on the opening lap. With six yellow caution flags, Abrahamson was challenged by Rob VanMill but didn't give up the lead.

In the Four Cylinder feature, Bryce Mueller's #11 car caught on fire with the driver safely escaping. Chris Geray came back to win the feature this week after a roll over and landing on the top of the guard rail last week, the driver from Mahnomen took the lead after a yellow caution and three laps remaining.

Christopher Christian of Fertile drove his 33C in the lead for the first 12 laps in the Midwest Mod Feature and watched points leader at NCR Austin Arneson make the pass with three laps left to another feature win for Arneson.
Christian would finish second for his best finish this season.
Tim Shiek of Moorhead took the lead in the Purestock Special with nine laps left and won the feature.
