After some issues at Jamestown, Ricky Thornton Jr. made his way to Nodak Speedway with redemption on his mind at the 31st Annual Moritz Sport & Marine Dakota Classic Modified Tour presented by Bismarck Motor Company.
Only one “slider” was necessary to get out front as he slid up ahead of Jason Wolla and proceeded to continue his hot streak in 2020. Austin Arneson, Wolla, Eddie Belec, and Spencer Wilson completed the Top 5.
Elijah Zevenbergen, already having won both main events of the Tour, started on the pole of the Nodak Speedway main event. Chanse Hollatz started to his outside and jumped out to the lead early on. An unfortunate loss of control on one of the early laps by Hollatz made him relinquish the lead to Zevenbergen and Dalton Flory. A broken right front about halfway through the race quickly became Zevenbergen’s biggest challenge yet of the 2020 Tour. Dalton Flory threw everything he had at Zevenbergen, making sure that Zevenbergen earned his victory. Flory, Hollatz, Matt Speckman, and Joe Flory finished out the Top 5.
