ADA, Minn. (June 15, 2017) – A solid field of 50 race teams were checked in Thursday night at Norman County Raceway as Ag Country Farm Credit Services and Seedex presented the night’s races.

In one of the most exciting finishes of the season, Vince Jegtvig topped Jesse Skalicky by the narrowest of margins in the Titan Machinery IMCA SportMod feature. Jegtvig led on the opening lap over Skalicky, Aaron Wetterlin, and Andy Wagner. Just as they have the previous two weeks, Skalicky, Wetterlin, and Wagner all battled for position, but this time it was for second instead of the lead.

On the final lap, Wetterlin peeked underneath Jegtvig. Wetterlin was only able to drive alongside his rear quarter panel as Jegtvig held the advantage heading into the final set of corners. Coincidentally, both Jegtvig and Wetterlin drifted up the race track exiting turn four, which allowed Skalicky an opportunity to steal the win coming to the checkers.

Skalicky and Jegtvig drag-raced to the Frandsen Bank & Truck flagstand, where Jegtvig edged out Skalicky by 0.011 seconds.

Wetterlin, Wagner, and Kelly Jacobson rounded out the top five.

Cale Arneson picked up his first career NCR Sanders Metal Products IMCA Modified feature win over a stout field of drivers. The Fargo driver took the top spot on lap three as Brady Petermann suddenly slowed while leading as mechanical issues forced him pit side.

Once out front, Arneson paced the field with little challenge as he cruised to KRJB 106.5FM Victory Lane. Lucas Rodin, Dave Shipley, Jamie Trautner, and Tyler Hall rounded out the top five.

Nick Nelson also picked up his first career win. Nelson led every lap of the Christian Brothers Ford IMCA Hobby Stock feature to pick up the win over Tim Shiek and Brandon Schmidt.

It took Matt Schow several years to record his first Christian Motors Midwest Modified feature win at NCR. A week after getting that first elusive victory, the McIntosh driver went back to back as he topped the 16-car field.

Schow took the lead from his outside front row starting position before checking out from the field. Schow led every lap and picked up the win by a whopping five seconds over Brock Gronwold.

With the win, Schow has punched a ticket into the AFCO Race of Champions at the WISSOTA 100 at Dakota State Fair Speedway in September.

Aaron Olson continued his dominance in the Norman County Implement IMCA Stock Cars. Olson led every lap of the feature en route to his fifth win of the season in as many races.

Next week, NCR will be hosting two nights of racing beginning Wednesday night. For just $5, fans can watch IMCA Stock Cars, INEX Legends, and NLSA Lightning Sprints. On Thursday, the Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA 410 Winged Sprint Cars make their annual visit to NCR. They will be joined by IMCA Modifieds and IMCA Stock Cars.

ADA, Minn. (June 1, 2017) – After a week off, Thursday Night Thunder, presented by Christian Motors, roared back to life at Norman County Raceway. Austin Arneson, Jesse Skalicky, Aaron Olson, and Tim Church took home the Speedway Motors IMCA Weekly Racing wins, while Lucas Rodin picked up the lone WISSOTA PolyDome Dirt Track Series victory.

Corry VanMil brought the Norman County Implement IMCA Stock Cars to the green flag and jumped out to the early lead. On lap three, VanMil had a five car length advantage over Kelly Jacobson, but drove his machine too hard into turn three and slid off the embankment to bring out the caution.

That handed the lead over Jacobson, who had Rick Schulz and Aaron Olson lined up behind him for the restart. As the race resumed, Olson got by Schulz for second before tracking down Jacobson.

With 11 circuits remaining, Olson took the lead and checked out for his third win in as many races at NCR.

The Sanders Metal Products IMCA Modified feature got off to a rough start as a four car pile occurred on the opening lap. Fortunately, three of the four cars involved were able to continue racing. Cale Arneson was the only driver forced to go back to the trailer.

On the restart, polesitter Dale Kraling led the field to the green as Lucas Rodin and Tyler Hall fought for second. On lap six, the battle for second went three wide as Austin Arneson had reeled in Hall and Rodin.

Arneson was the beneficiary, moving from fourth to second in one set of corners. From there, the Fargo driver set his sights on Kraling for the lead.

Arneson caught Kraling and took the lead with nine laps to go. Kraling fought hard to keep the lead, but Arneson was too strong and eventually pulled away from the field and taking the win.

On the final lap, ninth place starter Jason Strand passed Kraling coming out of turn four to steal the runner-up position.

The Titan Machinery IMCA Sport Mods had a trio of number three’s mix it up for the feature win. Aaron Wetterlin, No. 3W, Andy Wagner, No. 3X, and Jesse Skalicky, No. 3S, all led the race at one point throughout the 16-lap event.

Wagner and Wetterlin began the race with an intense battle for the lead. With Wetterlin running down low, Wagner used the high lane to keep his momentum up. With eight laps to go, fourth place starter, Skalicky, caught the leaders before making an aggressive move for the lead.

While Wagner and Wetterlin were still racing side by side for the lead, Skalicky split both drivers in a three wide move that allowed him to go from third to first in one corner.

Once out front, Skalicky drove away from the field to pick up the win.

Grady Shearer jumped out to the early lead of the Christian Motors WISSOTA Midwest Modified feature. Shearer, a rookie in the class, had built up a somewhat comfortable lead, but it was all erased when he drove too hard into turn three and spun off the track.

As as result, Larry Samuelson inherited the lead, but he was surpassed by Lucas Rodin with 10 laps remaining. Within a matter of laps, Rodin stretched his lead out to a full straightaway as Matt Schow moved into second.

Rodin went on to take the win over Schow, Dylan Goplen, Don Scholler, and Sam Zender.

In an crazy finish, Tim Church scored the Christian Brothers Ford IMCA Hobby Stock win after another highly contested battle with Brandon Schmidt. However, Church’s steering broke after taking the checkered flag, which sent him hard into the outside wall. Church was given a ride to KRJB Victory Lane on the back of an NCR official’s four-wheeler.

Racing continues next Thursday night at NCR, featuring the fan favorite Meet ‘n’ Greet during intermission where fans can get an up close look at the cars and get autographs from their favorite drivers.
