Advance Racing Association - Championships are nothing new to Steve Blair and his father George. They have won them racing on dirt and on pavement.

ASA Midwest Tour - Donny Reuvers used his home track advantage to go from sixth to the lead in the first eight laps to win the Shakopee 100 at Raceway Park.  Reuvers used the outside line to make his burst to the front.  It was the first win of the season for the veteran driver and owner of Raceway Park, who has been on hiatus from ASAMT competition this season as he held off a tough challenge from Steve Carlson for win.

Chris Wimmer started eighth and used the outside line to work his way up to a third place finish.

Jeff Storm started where he finished with a fourth place finish with Jamie Farrell coming home fifth.  Nick Neville was sixth with current ASAMT Point Leader Nathan Haseleu in seventh.  Jamie Iverson was eighth with Blake Brown finishing ninth.  Andrew Morrissey rounded out the top-ten.

Big 8 Series - 16-year-old Ross Kenseth claimed his second consecutive BRP Big 8 Series presented by Gandrud Chevrolet feature victory Friday at the Madison International Speedway, claiming the rain-delayed “Rockweiler Insulation 38” a month and a half after he set fast time for the event. Kenseth used a late race restart with three laps remaining to jump past Andrew Kulka on the outside and drive to his third Big 8 Series feature victory of the season with four races down. Kulka put up a challenge but couldn’t find the grip he needed on the inside lane, allowing Kenseth to complete his charge from deep in the field, starting on the sixth row, to the front.
