EAST GRAND FORKS, Minn. (August 10, 2022) – Dustin Strand returned to victory lane last weekend at Greenbush Race Park…. Twice! Strand won both the Modified and Late Model features to put him at five total wins in 2022.
Strand’s weekend began on Friday night at River Cities Speedway where he also pulled double duty in his Millenium SRT Modified and Late Model. Strand put on a strong drive during the Modified feature, advancing from 12th to 4th.
After picking up four positions in the first two laps, the charge to the front became a methodical task for Strand. The East Grand Forks driver picked up a position about every three laps throughout the remainder of the race, moving into fifth late in the going before taking over the fourth position with four to go.
The run through the field made Strand the race’s hard charger.
Unfortunately, the night was brought to an end early in the Late Model as a mechanical failure forced him back to the pits before the conclusion of the 20-lapper.
Strand was a heat race win away from being perfect on the night on Saturday at Greenbush. He began the night by driving from fifth to win his Modified heat and driving from fifth to second in the NLRA Late Model heat.
Strand drew the outside of the front row for the Modified feature and the pole for the NLRA main event. He absolutely dominated feature action leading every lap of both features to score two checkered flags on the night.
Strand now has tallied four Late Model wins this season and one Modified.
He’ll look to keep the momentum going this week as he returns to River Cities Speedway in the Late Model on Friday.
