- Norman County Raceway -
Thursday, August 21, 2008

Brian Strand was very excited to take the checkered flag and make a victory lap Thursday at the Norman County Raceway after earning the win of the Modified feature. Alex Engelstad , last week's feature winner was the early leader and Brian Strand needed to race through traffic after starting behind Engelstad. Strand took the lead with eleven laps remaining, with eight laps to go, Strand watched Engelstad go into the infield to end his night and then had to hold off Rick Jacobson who raced to his side before he slid up the track and ended up going to the pits. This night was far from over as Blake Jetvig moved into second place and on the final corner, Strand's #71 slid to the top and Jetvig appeared to be in position to win, but, Strand found something extra and crossed the line ahead of Jetvig. Ken Crane , second in points behind Justin Olson in the Purestocks made the standings interesting for next week's final race when Crane won the feature. Shane Laske continues with his second half season push winning the Mod Fours. Dustin Strand won another feature in the Midwest Mods to increase his lead in the points at NCR, as well as chasing for the National Points Championship.
Here's all the results.
