GRAND FORKS, ND (September 10) - The Northern Outlaw Sprint Cars roared into the speedway with 27 drivers set for the 25 lap, $1,500-to-win A-main, sponsored by Buffalo Wild Wings.
Sioux Falls, South Dakota’s Dusty Zomer and current NOSA point leader, Wade Nygaard, lined up on the front row. Zomer grabbed the lead on the opening lap as the field charged into turn one. Nygaard, Austin Pierce, and Thomas Kennedy battled for the runner-up spot as they tried to chase down the Buffalo Wild Wings #82. Finally on lap eight, a driver was able to reel in Zomer, and it was the winningest driver in RCS history; Mark Dobmeier.
After a multi-lap duel, Dobmeier was able to steal the point his in Senske & Sons #13. Once out front, Dobmeier was in a class of his own as he checked out on the pack. Meanwhile, the drivers racing in the top five were all slicing and dicing through the dense lapped traffic. Pierce and Kennedy were exchanging slide jobs and crossover moves nearly every corner of every lap, but when the checkers flew, Pierce came home in second behind Dobmeier. Kennedy, Chris Ranten, and Zomer rounded out the top five.
Dobmeier and Pierce are now locked into Saturday night’s 10 lap dash, which will set the first four rows of the $2,500-to-win/$500-to-start, 35 lap A-main. The top eight drivers on the starting grid on Saturday will also have the opportunity to tag the rear of the field for a chance at the $8,200-to-win Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin’ Challenge.
