The Chateau Speedway in Lansing opened up on Friday to start the 66th season the speedway has been in operation. Finally, some excellent weather greeted everyone for the six-division program. A total of 86 cars signed in for the opener.

A.J. Hoff of Mantorville started outside of row one to win his second career USRA Modifieds feature. Jason Cummins of New Richland was second, pole sitter Kylie Kath from Claremont was third while Ryan Wetzstein of West Concord who started 10th charged to fourth and Winona’s Josh Angst was fifth.

The USRA Stock Cars will take the place of the WISSOTA Street Stocks class in 2022. The Stock Cars made their debut with 10-cars in attendance. Travis Shipman of Mason City, Iowa brought home the win.

Three-time defending track champion in the USRA B-Mods, Noah Grinstead of Austin picked up where he left off last season. Grinstead drove from 12th to win the feature. The other driver with a great run was Michael Johnson, also of Austin, who came from 18th to fifth.

Noah Grinstead, of Austin, was the Double M Transport USRA B Mod feature winner Friday, May 13, 2022, at Chateau Speedway in Lansing, Minn.

Jake Smith of St. Joseph made the long haul to Lansing pay off when he topped the WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds feature. Smith was the WISSOTA Rookie of the Year in the Midwest Modifieds and finished fifth in national points, with 16 wins in 2021. It was Smith’s 17th show this season as he has raced in New Mexico, Nevada, Kansas and Missouri.


In other action at Chateau, P.J. Duchene of Faribault won the Pure Stocks feature and Nate Coopman of Mankato won the Hornets main event.

Deer Creek Fires Up 2022 Season

Saturday, the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley got its season underway. A big field of 115 cars came to race for the first night of racing. In the WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds, Nick Koehler from Bloomer, Wis., started in row one and dominated the 18-lap race for the win. Koehler, who spent 2021 in a WISSOTA Modified, will run in both classes in 2022.

Braden Brauer of Eyota, fresh off a third-place finish at Fergus Falls on Friday, won the WISSOTA Street Stocks feature at Deer Creek. Brauer, the defending track champion, took the lead away from Bernie Adams of Osage, Iowa, on lap five and led the rest of the way.

Andrew Hanson made the long four-and-a-half-hour haul from Iron River, Wis., to finish second. Kolton Brauer, Braden's younger brother, ran a strong race and finished in third.

The Gopher 50 Late Model Race has taken a two-year hiatus -- it wasn't held in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and last year's scheduled show was rained out. This year, for the first time the race will be a three-day show, with the winner of Saturday's Late Models finale receiving $50,000, the largest payout in the race's 40-year history.
Parity has entered the local stock car racing scene this summer, as first-time feature winners continue to pop up at area tracks on a weekly basis.

A large field of 40 USRA B-Mods were on hand and it took five heat races and two B-Mains to determine the 26-car field for their 18-lap main event. Trevor Fecht of Allison, Iowa, took off from row one and led every lap but the most important one, the last one.

Fecht held the lead but Hunter Kennedy of St. Ansgar, Iowa, slowly closed the gap and was ready to make a move when the white flag came out. Kennedy dove to the inside of Fecht in turn three and slid up in front of Fecht with room to spare to steal the lead in turn four. Kennedy held on for his second career Deer Creek win. Jackson Hale of Grand Meadow had a fine run from seventh to third.

The USRA Stock Cars have joined the weekly line-up at Deer Creek, taking the place of the WISSOTA Super Stocks. A good field of 15 cars were there and they put on their normal great race. Kyle Falck of Decorah, Iowa, led all 20 laps, but Travis Shipman from Mason City, Iowa, gave him a little scare on the final lap.

The race behind the leaders was excellent, with six cars dueling for third. That went on for most of the race with McIntire, Iowa’s Blake Adams driving from ninth to take the position. Jesse Brown from Nashua, Iowa, was fourth and Cole Denner out of Ionia, Iowa, was fifth.


USRA Modified rookie driver Parker Hale of Grand Meadow held the early lead when the feature race got going. However, defending track champion Cory Crapser of Chippewa Falls, Wis., took over on lap nine. Crapser led the rest of the way for the win. Hale finished a very strong second, West Concord’s Ryan Wetzstein ran third, with New Richland’s Jason Cummins and Joe Horgdal of Kasson in the top five.

Narvy’s Notes

• The Mississippi Thunder Speedway in Fountain City, Wis., did not race this past weekend. They scheduled the weekend off to give their staff a chance to rest after their three-day show the week prior. Their four-division program starts at 7:15 p.m. this Friday.

• Three racers have come back to racing after some time away from the sport. Tony Bloom of Rochester is in a WISSOTA Midwest Modified after about 10 years away. Bloom is a third-generation racer whose dad Jerry and grandpa Jim all raced in the past.

• Ray Rehbein of Byron is also back in a USRA B-Mod for 2022. Rehbein said it had been about 10 years since he was in a race car also. Keith Foss of Winona has returned to the USRA Modifieds after a couple of years off. Foss ran a couple of shows for Steve Wetzstein last year.

• On the other end of the spectrum there were at least six rookies making their first ever races on Saturday. That is good to see for the sport and those drivers will improve as they get more time in the seat.

• Four local Modified drivers are chasing USMTS Modifieds gold in 2022 and they were in action in Oklahoma over the weekend. On Friday at the Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Okla., Rochster’s Dustin Sorensen finished third and Chatfield’s Jacob Bleess was fourth. Lucas Schott of Chatfield finished 10th and Winona’s Jake Timm was 16th.

On Saturday they raced at Tri-State Speedway in Pocola, Okla. After a two-hour delay for an electrical issue at the track, the show went on. Sorensen charged from 13th to finish fourth. Timm ran ninth while Schott was 13th and Bleess was 18th. Sorensen left the weekend still leading the point standings while Schott sits in third.

In two weeks, the USMTS will make its annual Memorial Day swing through the area. On Friday, May 27, the series will invade the Chateau Speedway for the first time since 2016. On Saturday, May 28, the USMTS will tackle the Deer Creek Speedway.
