Schott Fires First At Deer Creek

SPRING VALLEY, Minn. — It took Lucas Schott one turn of the steering wheel to take control of Thursday night’s Summit USMTS Modified main event on opening night of the 24th annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree at the Deer Creek Speedway.

The 26-year-old from nearby Chatfield beat four-time USMTS National Champion Rodney Sanders to the flagstand to lead the opening lap, and then went unchallenged the final 29 circuits to get his second win of the season and 12th of his career.

Cautions slowed the pace on just three occasions, and while Schott led every lap it was a race-long battle behind him for nearly every other position.

Darron Fuqua snuck by Sanders with two laps to go and earned runner-up money while Tanner Mullens, Jake O’Neil and Dustin Sorensen followed close behind at the finish line.

Sorensen continues to lead the points in the Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt. With five races remaining, his lead dipped by six points Thursday night as Mullens narrowed the gap atop the standings to 78 markers.
Thursday’s triumph was Schott’s third at ‘The Creek’ as he collected $3,000 for his efforts.

The finish:

Lucas Schott, Darron Fuqua, Rodney Sanders, Tanner Mullens, Jake O’Neil, Dustin Sorensen, Jake Timm, Zack VanderBeek, Brandon Davis, Dereck Ramirez, Joe Duvall, Jacob Bleess, Terry Phillips, Clayton Wagamon, Carlos Ahumada Jr., Josh Angst, Parker Hale, Brandon Givens, Ryan Wetzstein, Chase Holland, Cayden Carter, Alex Williamson, Dan Ebert, Kyle Brown, Dylan Thornton, Shane DeVolder, Lance Mari, Cory Crapser, Jason Hughes.
