Another great night weather wise greeted race fans and racers for action at Deer Creek Speedway. This week’s program was presented by Randy & Sandy Norby, Bob The Bug Man and Express Pressure Washers.
Four drivers scored their first wins of the season this week and one continued his hot start to the season. In the five feature events there was only one caution flag. That came in the final race of the night which was the USRA Modified main event.
Zack VanderBeek would grab the lead from the start of the 25-lap USRA Modified feature. Dustin Sorensen hung with VanderBeek but a quick yellow on lap two would slow the race.
VanderBeek took off from the start but behind him Sorensen now felt pressure from Brandon Davis. Davis used the low groove to take second and While Tony Schill and Jacob Bleess had a good race for fourth. Jason Cummins was close behind that battle on lap five.
VanderBeek led, but Davis slowly reeled in the leader when the started to encounter lapped traffic. The leaders approached the back of the field and VanderBeek went high in turn one with Davis low. Davis worked past the lapped car and took the lead.
From there Davis pulled away for his first win at Deer Creek this season. VanderBeek would finish in second with Sorensen a solid third. Cummins wound up in fourth and Schill was fifth.
