Schmitt Shines In Spring Valley

Tom Schmitt picked up his second win of the season Saturday night as the Holley Iron Man Series featuring USRA Stock Cars invaded the Deer Creek Speedway as part of the 5th Annual World Modified Dirt Track Championship presented by Red Tail Tackle.

Schmitt, who started sixth, was part of an eight-car pack at the front of the field that jockeyed for position for the first half of the 20-lap main event at the high-banked clay oval in Spring Valley, Minn.

But the former USRA Stock Car National Champion and Holley Iron Man Series Champion asserted himself on lap 12 and then kept the field at bay for the remaining eight laps.

The win was worth $750 to the Independence, Iowa, driver.

Shawn Peter, who won Thursday night’s USRA Stock Car feature here, came home in a close second with Kyle Falck finishing third and earning an extra $250 as the NFG Fleet Graphics Hard Charger after starting 19th on the 23-car grid.

Kevin Donlan rebounded from an early flat tire to claim the fourth spot with Mitch Hovden rounding out the top five finishers.

Sixth through tenth, respectively, went to Brian Mahlstedt, Lynn Panos, Stefan Sybesma, Jake Newman and Steve Jackson.

The next Holley Iron Man Series event for the USRA Stock Cars happens Friday, Aug. 7, at the Fayette County Speedway in West Union, Iowa.

The next Holley Iron Man Series race for the USRA B-Mods takes place on Wednesday, Sept. 2, at the Hamilton County Speedway in Webster City, Iowa.
