GRAND FORKS, ND (June 10) - A near record breaking field of NOSA Sprint Cars were entered into Friday night's event at River Cities Speedway. Thirty-three cars fought for 24 positions in the A-main and as a result, a few familiar names were forced to load up early, including point leader Wade Nygaard.
That left the door open for many drivers to come home with a solid finish and gain those valuable track and series points.
Dave Glennon and Cory Mack started on the front row for the 25-lap feature with Mack showing the way in the early going. Glennon filed into second as Jack Croaker, Trent Stengl and Mark Dobmeier fought for third.
On lap five Dobmeier moved up, took second from Glennon and set his sights on the Miracle Ear #25 of Mack. It took the driver of the Senske & Sons/Big Trucks by Jimco #13 another five circuits to track down and get by Mack. Once out front, Dobmeier got his elbows up and masterfully maneuvered through the dense lapped traffic for the remainder of the caution-free event.
Behind Dobmeier, Glennon regained second with a pass on Mack, but there was no catching Dobmeier at that point in the race as the winningest driver in River Cities Speedway history added another tally to his astronomical win total.
Glennon, Mack, Austin Pierce who started eighth, and Stengl rounded out the top five.
Casey Mack was the race's hard charger as he scratched and clawed his way from 18th to finish eighth.
Next Friday night the NOSA Sprint Cars will be joined by the World of Outlaws for their first of two appearances at River Cities Speedway.
