Lund is the Man of Steele in ASCS Northern Plains Action
OWATONNA, Minn. (June 21, 2006) -- Curt Lund recorded his first career American Sprint Car Series feature victory by topping Wednesday night's 25-lap ASCS Northern Plains Region feature event at Steele County Speedway.
Lund avoided a wild opening lap melee that eliminated several entries, including Jerry Richert, Jr., who got the worst of it with a turn one flip. Richert was uninjured in the tangle.
Back under way, Lund took command from the outset and paced the field throughout aboard the Jackpot Junction Casino & Hotel No. 87 machine to secure the win.
Current series point leader Chuck Swenson chased Lund across the line, with Gregg Bakker, Dustin Lindquist and Bill Boles rounding out the top five. Jesse Drost was sixth, with the balance of the top ten including Scott Broty, Mike Sitzmann, Jr., Lee Grosz and Jake Peters.
Lund, Roger Rager and Boles topped heat race action for the 28-car field, with Sitzmann winning the "B" Main.
