- Norman County Raceway -
Thursday, July 10, 2008

Racing returned to the Norman County Raceway in Ada, Minnesota after a Fourth of July break. After the mid-season break, Brian Strand and Dustin Strand continued with their winning ways--- Brian Strand won the Modifieds feature and also his heat race, Dustin Strand also won his Midwest Mod heat and the feature. For both drivers, they held off all challengers after three yellow flag restarts. In the Modified feature, Brian Strand overtook Alex Engelstad with eight laps remaining and then withstood a serious challenge from Blake Jetvig two laps from the end. Jetvig got his 2J side by side to bring the crowd to the edge of their seats watching as Strand held the line into the first corner on the white flag lap and win another feature. Similarily, Dustin Strand took the lead in the Midwest Mod feature with ten laps remaining and held off Bryan Dyrdahl and Danny Strem. Strem had a two point lead over Strand entering this weeks race in the NCR points standings. Michael Griffin of Detroit Lakes was a first time feature winner this season at NCR claiming the checkered flag in the Four Cylinders. It was a crazy Four Cylinder feature--- Daniel Bolstad and Troy Kuehl both rolled their cars in the first corner, fortunately both drivers were safe, Kuehl continued racing for a third place finish. Also, Wayne Nieme went hood first into the fourth corner guard rail/post, he also was able to walk away from the crash. Shayne Laske had to take his time working through early traffic before taking the lead with two laps remaining and holding off Josh Abrahamson in the Mod Four feature. The Purestocks didn't disappoint any fans either, Chad Geray won the feature with a fast moving Ken Crane closing in on the final lap after Crane.

It was a fantastic night of racing at the Norman County Raceway. Here's all the results:
