Dacotah Speedway Recap - August 14

Posted by Becca Rattei 8/17/2020 12:48:59 PM

Dacotah Speedway decided to celebrate their 30th Anniversary on Friday, August 14th. The first 100 race fans received free cupcakes as they walked in the fan gate. During intermission, the first two candidates for the Dacotah Speedway Hall of Fame were announced, long-time volunteer Curt Klein and former race car driver, Carrie Mundahl. The track also honored the fallen race car drivers that we have lost within the past year. 


Pole sitter JayDe Satcho and Levi Ensz battled for the lead in the IMCA Sport Compact feature. Satcho led early while it was a four car battle for second between Ensz, Ken Sandberg, Paul Schuh and Alex Thompson. Sandberg shuffled into the second and reeled in Satcho for the lead. A mid race caution grouped the field and on the restart Sandberg pulled away on the restart. Meanwhile, it was a battle for second between Satcho and Thompson. They raced side by side for second before Thompson made a late race pass. As the checkered flag waved, Alex Thompson edged JayDe Satcho for second place. Braydee Hanson, who started ninth, passed Levi Enze for fourth while Ken Sandberg pulled away to win his third feature win of the season. 


Outside pole sitter, Bill Hultberg, passed pole sitter Roy Erickson in the Hobby Stock feature. As Hultberg started to pull away, Nathan Mundal and Daniel Kaseman battled for second. An early caution reset the field and on the restart, Kaseman passed Hultburg for the lead, bringing A.J. Davenport with him. Davenport reeled in Kaseman but a late race caution set up a green white checkered restart. Daniel Kaseman pulled away on the restart to win his second career Hobby Stock feature, his first at Dacotah Speedway. A.J. Davenport settled for second while Bill Hultberg finished third ahead of John Gartner Jr. Mike Appert rounded out to the top five. 


Austin Wiest and Nate Keena battled for the lead in the INEX Legends feature. They raced side by side for several laps before an early race caution regrouped the field. On the restart, it was a three car battle for the win between Wiest, Keena and Drew Papke. Using the highside to his advantage, Papke blew by Wiest and Keena to take the lead. A mid-race caution regrouped the field and on the restart, Wiest challenged Papke for the lead. As the laps wound down, Drew Papke pulled away to win his second feature victory over Nate Keena. Austin Wiest finished third while points leader Donavin Wiest held off Ryan Braseth for fourth. 


Mandan’s Kyle Zittleman led the field to the green flag in the WISSOTA Street Stock feature. As Zittleman pulled away, second place Jason Meidinger had his hands full with Brad Kadrmas, John Feist and Zach Frederick. Frederick motored by to take second and quickly reel in Zittleman for the lead. By lap seven, Frederick passed Zittleman but now Zittleman was feeling pressure from points leader Hunter Domagala and Kyle Anderson. Domagala swiftly passed Zittleman, bringing Anderson with him and wasted no time catching Frederick. With five laps to go, Hunter Domagala Domagala passed Frederick for the lead and went on to win his fourth feature victory in a row. Kyle Anderson made a late race pass to finish second ahead of Zach Frederick while Tracy Domagala held off Kyle Zittleman for fourth place. 


In the final feature of the night, Crist Pittenger passed pole sitter, Tony Marsh, for the lead in the IMCA Modified feature. Pittenger felt pressure from behind from Scott Gartner and Marlyn Seidler. Gartner briefly took the lead on lap seven but his lead was short lived as Seidler slipped by to take the lead on lap 11. Gartner then started to fade through the field, losing positions to Spencer Wilson, Shawn Strand, Travis Olheiser. Strand passed Wilson who then fell into the clutches of Olheiser. Making a late race pass, Rusty Kollman finished fifth behind Spencer Wilson. Points leader Travis Ohleiser finished third while Shawn Strand finished a distant second. Marlyn Seidler was in another zip code as he cruised to victory lane to win his 97th IMCA Modified feature victory.
