SLAYTON, Minn. (May 22) – Hometown heroes David Reisdorfer and Chad Lonneman had them dancing in the streets Friday night in Adrian.
Both drivers won for the first time in their respective careers when the IMCA North Star Tour opened at Murray County Speedway.
Reisdorfer started from the pole and led the distance in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature. Dan Mackenthun tried to stay close but had to settle for second. Levi Feltman was third.
Lonneman also drew the inside row one start. He outran Matt Hanson and John Ross for the checkers.
“It’s kind of neat that we’d both win the same night,” said Lonneman, who pits next to Reisdorfer and noted the number of sanctioned tracks in the area they’d be able to race at this season. “We knew there would be a good group of local cars going there Friday.”
Mat Hollerich won his second career IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified tour feature, in front of eighth starting Jeff Ignaszewski and 10th starting Jason Fisher.
Jake Simpson scored North Star Series career win number four in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods.
