Hartung came back to Bellefeuille’s side and flew by for the second point. Hartung continued to rock the high line and caught and passed Thoennes for the lead. Hartung pulled away from the field and the top five separated from the pack, however the yellow waved and drivers were regrouped. Hartung brought the drivers back to green but Bellefeuille moved to his door. Bellefeuille and Hartung were side by side for the lead when contact was made and Hartung spun. The yellow waved and field was reset with Hartung in the lead. Hartung, Dave Cain and Darrell Nelson went three wide for first as the race resumed and Hartung held the point. Hartung then went high on the track and Nelson shot by, but the yellow followed. As the field was realigned, Hartung was first but Nelson flew by when the green dropped. Cain, Hartung and Jeremy Nelson (06) went three wide for second and Cain snagged the point. Shane Sabraski took third and worked Cain as the yellow waved again. D. Nelson was in charge on the restart but Cain worked the low groove and moved to his side. With only three laps to go, D. Nelson and Cain were nose to nose at the line. Cain inched ahead down the back chute but D. Nelson was back in the turn. The checkers were raised and they both floored to the line, Cain was the faster driver and earned the victory.

Cain heads back to Minnesota with a "Little Dream" sweep

By Ed Reichert

The WISSOTA Modifieds were on the card also on Tuesday and Dave Cain from Corcoran Minnesota won his first feature of the year at Rice Lake as he topped a strong field of competitors.

The Modified feature was also a smooth running event which, after spins on laps one and three, went green to checkered the last seventeen laps. Steve Hallquist led the way through the first half of the race, fighting off first Tim Johnson and then Kevin Eder after Eder raced into the runner up slot.

Cain started fifth and was quickly on the move, using both the low and high side of the track.

With a strong move, Cain passed Eder for second and then put the heat on Hallquist for the lead. Several times Cain nearly made the move but Hallquist was able to fight him off with Eder also looking for racing room.

Just at the halfway point, Cain got a good run off turn four and drove past Hallquist on the outside to take over the lead. Once in front, he started to stretch his advantage as Eder then began to pressure for second.

Picking up the pace farther back in the pack was Neil Balduc who drove past first Kevin Adams and then Johnson on the high side. Eder was finally able to get past Hallquist for second but Cain had now built up a substantial lead.

With no more yellows to bunch the field, Cain drove home with little trouble for the win over a strong running Eder. Hallquist held off a late charge by Balduc for third with Johnson completing the top five.

WISSOTA Modifieds:
20 lap Feature – Dave Cain(Corcoran MN), Kevin Eder(Ashland), Steve Hallquist(Eau Claire), Neil Balduc(Bessemer MI), Tim Johnson(Brainerd MN), Kevin Adams(Cameron), Cory Mahder(Eau Claire), Ashley Anderson(Elk Mound), Don Eischens(Richmond MN), Mike Anderson(Colfax), Nick Koehler, Scott Miller, Cody Borgeson, Pat Hoffman, Wayne Poteer, Jason Gross
10 lap Heat 1 – Eder, Hallquist, A. Anderson, Balduc, Koehler(Bloomer), Eischens, Miller, Hoffman

2016 race season well underway for Dave Cain Racing!

- Kicking off the weekend of Memorial Day weekend racing, DCR headed to Casino Speedway in Watertown, SD on Thursday for the first night of the Advantage RV Modified Tour this season. 32 WISSOTA Modifieds checked in the gate. The night started out great. Dave started sixth in the heat and ran away with the heat win. The redraw for the feature didn't go so well - Dave drew the eigth starting spot - the worst starting spot available for the redraw drivers. That didn't stop the driver of the #2c from getting to the front; 15 laps into the 40-lap feature, Dave took the lead and never looked back and picked up his second feature win of the year by more than a straightaway! Along with the clean sweep.

Friday night brough the DCR crew to I-94 Speedway for night two of the Advantage RV Modified Tour. Another stellar 37 Wissota Modifieds were on hand. After starting 4th in the heat the #2c picked up another dominating heat race win for the 2nd night in a row. Dave rolled off the feature in the fourth starting spot. After falling back to 10th early. Dave worked his way back up the third position for another top three on the Advantage RV Modified Tour.

The plan was to race at Viking Speedway for the 12th annual Minnesota Modified Nationals Saturday and Sunday, but mother nature had other plans. The rest of the weekend was canceled. 

Weekend Results
Thursday May 26th- Casino Speedway- Heat: 1st, Feature: 1st

CORCORAN, MN - - With racing season right around the corner, Dave and the team are putting the finishing touches on the cars getting them ready for another racing season.

Over the off season, DCR added another Mastersbilt Modified By JMR to the stable. After switching to a JMR at the midpoint in the season last year and having a lot of success with it, tallying 9 wins in only 24 starts. It was a no brainer to get another car from Jay Mcdonald.

Going into the 2016 racing season, DCR is slated to run at Granite City Speedway(Sauk Rapids, MN) on Friday nights, Ogilvie Raceway (Ogilvie, MN) on Saturdays and new this year will be a new Sunday track,  St. Croix Speedway (St. Croix Falls, WI). Formerly, St. Croix raced on Fridays, but they made the switch to Sundays over the offseason.

With the addition of the 3 local tracks in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Dave and the team plan on running the Advantage RV Modified Tour for the 3rd year in a row. A former champion of the tour in 2014 and a 3rd place in the standings last year, DCR is excited to race the tour again. The Advantage RV Modified Tour races 12 events across Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.. This year the tour will have 3 separate swings. 2 events over Memorial Day weekend at Casino Speedway (Thursday) and I-94 Speedway (Friday). The 2nd swing of the tour brings us 4 nights of racing. Starting on Thursday at Grand Rapids Speedway, Superior Speedway on Friday, Hibbing Raceway on Saturday and a new track this year Proctor Speedway on Sunday. The final swing is a grueling 6 day swing. Starting on Tuesday at Granite City Speedway and finishing up at Miller Central Speedway on Sunday. Fiesta City Speedway, Casino Speedway, Brown County Speedway, and Dakota State Fair Speedway will be the other 5 tracks on the swing.
