Racing Action from the Murray County Speedway
By Liz Prahm

It was a great night for racing action! Friday July 18th races were sponsored by Viking Coco-Cola and the Royal Supper Club. One of the biggest events for the year was held as the Dominick Bruns Memorial Stock Car race. Next week will be kids night!

Hegstad Equipment IMCA Sport Compacts.
The car count was looking good as the first sports compacts take their positions on the line-up. The green flag drops and Stephanie Forsberg takes the lead. John Joehnck begins to challenge Forsberg for the lead. Forsberg pulls away with Chuck Wilhelm pulls around Joehnck for second trying to run down Forsberg for the lead. Forsberg was able to hold off Wilhelm to take home the win.

R&H Sealcoating IMCA Northern Sport Mods.
The Sport Mods take their way onto the track with an average amount of cars. The green flag is waving and there’s a battle out front for the lead between Randy Hook and Bruce Egeland.  Egeland will take the lead. Hook falls back in the field leaving Aaron Krohn to take the second place position. Krohn pass Egeland for the lead. Tony Rialson is working his way through the pack and then passes Egeland for the second place positon. Krohn is able to hold Rialson off for his second feature win of the season at the Murray County Speedway. Following behind Krohn was Rialson and Danny Myrvold.

Hadley Elevator IMCA Hobby Stocks
As the hobby stocks take the track, 18 cars take the green flag for the feature race. Corey Groenwald takes the early lead as the green flag drops. Groenwald enters the spin cycle to bring out the caution. The caution was charged to Dan Strandberg leaving Groenwald to start on the pole position. On the restart Groenwald pulls away from the field, only to fall off the pace a lap later. Matt Hanson takes the lead with Eric Gillette following close behind him. A battle for the fourth place position takes place between Derek Platt and Brad Synder. As Platt and Synder battle Trevor Holm makes his way around them to take over the fourth place position behind Travis Radke. Holm passes Radke to take over third place. The caution is out and on the restart they will start single file lined up behind Hanson. Hanson gets the early lead. Gillette begins to challenge on Hanson but just doesn’t have time to get around before Hanson gets the checkered flag. Close behind Hanson is Gillette and Holm.

Sign Pro/ Car Toyz IMCA Stock Cars.
The special event of the season with a $1,000 check to the winner, pulled onto the track with balloons tied to their cars in memory of Dominick Bruns. Daddy Shaun Bruns led the four wide parade lap, with a bundle of balloons tied to his car. The green flag dropped and Kevin DeBaere gets the early lead. Derek Green makes his way around Debaere, however a caution is pulled out. On the restart DeBaere pulls out for the early lead. Elijah Zevenbergen begins to challenge Chris Palsrok for third place. Jim Larson begins to battle Zevenbergen for fourth place.  DeBaere and Green would do battle for the next 15 laps as the track begins to take rubber and creates a one lane track. Green makes several attempts to get pass Debaere on the outside, but is never able to hold grip on the slick track. Palsrok, Larson and Zevenbergen is able to catch up to the two front leaders, but are not able to improve their position. DeBaere is able to hold of Green and Palsrock for the win and celebrates with the $1,000 check in the winner’s circle.

Wingless Sprints
Murray County Speedway hosted the Wingless Sprints for the first time in several years. The car count was down in the feature as Courtney Pedersen rolled his sprint car in the heat race and took out two cars that were behind him. On the start of the feature, Chuck McGillicray is out to the early lead. Bret Mellenberndt is able to find some grip on the higher side of the track and makes his way around Alex Shreiver for second place. Mellenberndt now sets his sight and begins to challenge McGillicray for the lead. Mellenberndt continues to slide around on the high side of the track and takes over the lead and is able to hold it to the finish, with McGillicray and Shreiver finishing behind him.

The Murray County Speedway will be hosting “Kids Night” on Friday, July 25th, with car rides for the kids at intermission and a candy toss. Children, ten years and under, are admitted free into the grandstand. The sponsor for the races this night is CPS of Slayton & Pipestone.
