EAST GRAND FORKS, Minn. (June 23, 2020) – Dustin Strand’s hot start to the season continued last Friday night at River Cities Speedway. Strand charged to a third-place finish from the seventh starting position to extend his streak of Late Model podium finishes to four to start his season.
“It was a pretty good run for us. We were hoping for a couple more laps or a yellow maybe, but it was good,” said Strand of the Late Model feature that went 20 laps caution-free. “We were coming pretty hard there at the end and it would have been nice to stack them up and give it a shot on a restart.”
After two races, Strand currently sits second in the River Cities Speedway Late Model track points, nine markers behind Brad Seng.
This weekend, Strand will return to River Cities Speedway on Friday, before heading back to Devils Lake Speedway on Saturday for the NLRA season opener. Saturday’s event, billed as the Golden Hammer Classic, boasts a big $2,000 payday to the winner of the NLRA feature.
On June 13th, Devils Lake hosted the WISSOTA Late Models for the first time this season and Strand came away with the victory – leading 22 of the 25 laps.
“We had the car dialed in there pretty good last Saturday at Devils Lake so hopefully we can carry some momentum,” said Strand.
Racing begins at 7:00pm both Friday and Saturday.
