Race Report for 08/15/2020
The racing has been hot at the Devils Lake Speedway!!!!
In the Purestock division #1CJ Joe Armstrong started 6th in the feature. Armstrong slowly worked his way to the front. But he had to get passed Daniel Bromstad of Laverne and Carter Tuenge of Rugby who were both having an Epic side by side battle for 1st place. After a car spinning brought the caution out. It bunched the cars back up giving Armstrong an opportunity. Not long later Armstrong muscles his way to the lead and ultimately took the checkered. But he wasn't show stopper watching Bromstad and Tuenge go door to door without touching for half the race was where the excitement was.

The Western Renegade Non-Wing Sprints just continue to grow in numbers and driver ability throughout the season. The class has had some support from the Northern Renegade Non-Wing Sprints this season. Jack Berger of Lake Elmo MN made the trip west to join the Western Renegades this Saturday night. This class started this year in the North Dakota area so everyone is a rookie. But has grown in popularity week after week. Joel Larson of Fertile MN had some tough luck in the heat ending up on his lid. The 16 race teams that were present all came together and helped put Larsons car back together again. Borrowing him parts and manpower. It is truly a great community to be apart of. Larson started 15th in the Feature and ended up finishing 5th. Winning the Shocks by Mindy Hard Charger Award. Veteran 410 Sprint Car Driver Dusty Lawson was driving a flawless race on the bottom and then all of a sudden gets passed by the founder of the Western Renegade Brand Myles Tomlinson on the top. After Tomlinson passed Lawson it was a photo finish coming across the line. Tomlinson ultimately took the checkered flag by .263 seconds. If you are interested in joining the class please reach out to the track or Myles Tomlinson.
