Hedges takes first place in close Pure Stock race

Fans were treated to a close race in the Pure Stock feature last Friday night at Eagle River Speedway, as C.J. Hedges narrowly took the checkered flag.
With Hedges starting from the fifth spot, he had to find a way to first get around Pelican Lake’s Herb Dett­man. Once he accomplished that, he got into a three-way battle with Rhinelander’s Jason Melton and Tomahawk’s Michael Brown.
From the second lap to the 11th lap, Melton led with Hedges and Brown going back and forth for the second spot. While those three drivers were side by side for much of the race, Eagle River’s Ken Valeria was close behind.

In the Midwest Modified feature, Phelps’ Jerry Grasse used his 21 years of racing experience to keep defending champion Jesse Aho in check. That is, until Aho made a move that few drivers have ever attempted in the track’s 40-year history.

Aho went as low on the track as a
