EAST GRAND FORKS, Minn. (July 5, 2023) - Dustin Strand scored his third win of the season behind the wheel of the No. 71 Keewatin Truck Service / Novacek Honey Farms Mullens by Millenium last Saturday night at Greenbush Race Park in Greenbush, MN
Strand started his night with a runner-up finish in his heat race from the fourth starting spot. Strand went on to start on the outside of the third row for the 20 lap main event. Strand wasted no time finding his way to the front of the field, taking the top spot on the third lap.
From there it was all Strand out front, leading all of the remaining laps to score the victory. The win is his third in his seven Modified starts in the area this season.
Strand was also in action last Friday night at River Cities Speedway as the World of Outlaws Late Models made their annual visit to Grand Forks. Strand went out late in his qualifying group and had to make up ground from there. Strand finished just shy of making the main with a sixth place finish in his Last Chance Showdown.
Strand returns to River Cities on Friday night just six points back of the point lead in the Late Model division. Strand, the 2016 National Champion, is also fifth in the WISSOTA National Title hunt in the Late Model division at the midway point of this season's campaign.
The No. 71 team will also head north of the border to Dead Horse Creek Speedway in Morden, Manitoba on Saturday. Strand will be in action with both the Late Model and Modified.
