EAST GRAND FORKS, Minn. (May 31, 2023) - It's been a great start to the local Modified season for Dustin Strand, driver of the No. 71 Q&Z Plumbing and Heating / Shocker Hitch Mullens by Millenium, as he scored his first victory of the 2023 campaign last Friday night at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, ND.
EAST GRAND FORKS, Minn. (May 25, 2023) - Coming off a pair of runner-up performances in consecutive weeks, Dustin Strand, driver of the No. 71 Bemidji Welders Supply / Novacek Honey Farms Mullens by Millenium, was in contention for his first victory of the season, but ended the night with a DNF.
EAST GRAND FORKS, Minn. (May 18, 2023) - Coming off a runner-up appearance with the Modified a week prior, Dustin Strand, driver of the No. 71 Carr's Grain Service / Keewatin Truck Service Millenium SRT, continued his strong start to the 2023 season with a runner-up finish with the Northern Late Model Racing Association at Devils Lake Speedway near Doyon, ND. Tonight, he will pilot his Mullens by Millenium WISSOTA Modified at his home track, River Cities Speedway, for the first time.
Breaking out the Late Model for the first time this season last Saturday, Strand started the night winning the first heat race. Heading into the main event starting third, Strand had a good chance at scoring his fifth series win at the track.
Strand made his way to second on the seventh lap, and held the spot until five laps were remaining. At that point, Strand caught leader Brody Troftgruben in heavy lapped traffic and took the lead on lap 21.
The second and final caution with three laps left gave Strand one last chance at the victory. While holding off two-time and defending series champion Mike Greseth, Strand was unable to regain the top spot, finishing second.
This Friday, Strand will move back over to the Mullens by Millenium Modified during the season opener at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, ND. With last week's rainout, Strand is still two wins away from his 100th win at the track in his career, seven of which are Modified victories.
