MSTS 360 Midwest Sprint Touring Series
Ryan Bickett strikes MSTS gold with I-90 Speedway victory
The last time Ryan Bickett visited victory lane at I-90 Speedway was 2014. That streak ended Saturday night when the three-time track champion took home the victory with the Property Solutions of America Midwest Sprint Touring Series.
Bickett took the lead on lap five of the feature with a move to the inside of Gregg Bakker, the initial leader of the event. On the seventh lap, Eric Lutz took over the second spot just before Bakker shredded a tired.
A good battle formed up behind the leaders with the third through fifth positions trading between five different drivers.
The win for Bickett is the fourth of his career with MSTS and win number 20 for the Ramona, South Dakota, driver at I-90 Speedway. Lutz was second ahead of Jody Rosenboom. Justin Jacobsma was fourth with Tommy Barber in fifth.
The Cressman Sanitation IMCA Sprint Cars had the fans on their feet on the closing lap. John Lambertz and Christopher Thram were side-by-side and racing for the win. Thram railed the top line but fell one-tenth of a second short of the win, with Lambertz getting his second victory of the year at I-90 Speedway. Thram took second with Micah Slendy in third. Trefer Waller started in the tenth row and raced all the way to fourth with Casey Abbas in fifth.
Zach Olivier used to move on lap 12 of the T&R Contracting Late Model Street Stock feature to take over the top spot. He’d go from there to his third win of the year at the track. Ron Howe led the first eleven circuits and placed second ahead of Dan Jensen who had started at the back of the field. Tim Dann and John Hoing completed the top five.
It was a second win in 2020 for Tyler Myers in the Great Western Bank USRA B-Modified feature. The Alexandria, South Dakota driver took over the lead on the seventh lap of the feature event with a move around Nate Grehl. Derek VanVeldhuizen started 13th and made his way to second just ahead of Brock Hess who has started outside row six. Camden Myers and Tyler Tesch completed the top five.
For the twentieth time in the class, Dustin Gulbrandson took the win in Saturday’s www.LawnSnow.com Hobby Stock feature. The two-time track champion took the lead on lap six after starting outside the sixth row. Landon Krohn moved from eighth to take second with initial leader Brian Campbell third. Tracy Halouska was fourth with Dylan Fitzpatrick charged to fifth after coming out of the B-main.
I-90 Speedway welcome the Property Solutions of America again next Saturday. The MSTS sprints are in action this Tuesday at Rapid Speedway before coming back to I-90.
