It’s Drag Racing In Mud

By Staff | Jul 2, 2015

The North Dakota sun brought a blanket of warmth to this past Saturday’s Mud Run at the Pierce County Fairgrounds and a slight northerly wind kept it pleasant. There were about 70 cars that participated, with attendance in excess of 500. Bruce Allen and Dave Trottier were there from KZZJ 1450 AM to provide the entertaining play-by-play calls and made sure everyone was kept informed and entertained.

There were 6 classes of races: Stock, Street Stock, Modified Stock, Modified, Open and Powder Puff with drivers from all around the state participating. This was a points event so all drivers were there to show their stuff.

The winners in the STOCK classifications were: First Place going to Brandon Weidner from Kindred. The second place finisher from Oberon was Anthony Charboneau. Taking third was Kim Dittus out of Fredonia.

The winners in the STREET STOCK division were: first Dean Snow from Jamestown, followed by Jon Johnson out of Cooperstown taking second place, and the third place finisher was Adam Weber from Lakota.

The winners in the MODIFIED STOCK division were as follows: In first place was Korey Kvelstad from Devils Lake. Second place was Jim Beck out of Eldridge. Third was taken by Josh Sattler from Willow City.

The winners in the MODIFIED division were: Shawn Kvelstad finished in first place from Devils Lake. In second place was Joe Sahr all the way from Fargo. Korey Kvelstad driving out of Devils Lake took third place.

The winners in the OPEN division were as follows: Korey Kvelstad out of Devils Lake in first place. Taking second place for the second time at these races was Joe Sahr from Fargo. Finishing in third place was Cliff Reeves, who resides in Oberon.

Last, but definitely not least, was the POWDER PUFF races. In that division Teresa Hannestad from West Fargo took first place. Dana Lemar out of Wolford took second place and Keri Beaver, from Rugby followed taking third place.

The Pierce County Fair wanted to recognize all the volunteers that made this event possible. In addition, they wanted to acknowledge Joy Fuller and Steve Jacobson from B& J Excavating who kept the track drivable and muddy, all at the same time. The Rugby Eagles who manned the beer garden. The Pierce County Volunteer Fire Department who made sure that if there were any problems they would be handled. Last but definitely not least the SWAT Wrestling club who made sure that no one in attendance was hungry by providing the food.
