The South St. Louis County Fair wrapped up Sunday July 13 and the final
act was a night of stock car racing. A total of 79 cars the best total of the
season were in competition and a good crowd of fans were in attendance.
The track turned into one where high groove momentum would rule the day,
a situation that can be dangerous as it forces drivers to run a line that can lead
to disaster with just a tiny error.
The first round of qualifying heats were complete by 6:30 and, after a
brief intermission for track grooming it was time for the five feature events to

It was Open Wheel night at the Proctor Speedway Sunday night featuring
Upper Midwest Sprint Series (UMSS)Traditional and Winged Sprint Cars

For the first time this racing season at the Proctor Speedway the
temperature matched the sunny and windy skies. The track crew did a
yeoman job reclaiming the track surface f rom the torrential rains that had
fallen during the night.
Cory Jorgenson of Hermantown was looking to nail down a Late Model
feature win in the 25 lap WISSOTA Late Model feature but first time visitor
Brent Larson of Lake Elmo, MN had other ideas. Larson mentioned that he
and his crew have been driving all over the area “chasing rain storms”
looking for someplace to race. The search took him to the Proctor Speedway
Sunday evening and paid off for him. Jorgenson led early on from the pole
and was hounded for several laps by Zach Wohlers, Larson, Kevin Carlson
and Terry Lillo. A couple of caution flags aided Larson who was in second
by the ten lap mark and pressuring Jorgenson enough that he spun around at
the top of turn one. The call went against Jorgenson leaving Larson sitting in
front ahead of Wohlers, Carlson, Harry Hanson and Tim McMann. The top
five would finish in that order except for Hanson who encountered trouble
and slipped back giving over fifth place to Kyle Peterlin. Larson turned the
fastest lap with a scorcher at 16.903 seconds for an average speed of 79.9
