ADA, MN (July 11) - The NOSA Outlaw Sprint Car Series made their annual visit to Norman County Raceway Thursday night with a great field of 19 winged Sprint Cars. An hour-long rain delay made for a fast and tacky racing surface all night long underneath the big, bright full moon.
As the race went back to green, Lee Grosz and Wade Nygaard began a heated battle for the lead as they traded slide jobs at both ends of the speedway and raced side by side, inches apart from each other on the straightaways. When it was all said and done, Grosz topped the past Norman County Raceway feature winner, Nygaard, to claim his first-ever win in Ada. Even more impressive was the fact that Grosz took the victory while running a 360 cubic inch engine under the hood against the 410 cubic inch touring series.
"I just knew I needed to get clear of (Nygaard) if I wanted to win," Grosz said following the race. "I needed to get out by myself and run my line in clean air. They had an awesome track tonight. One of the raciest tracks I've been on this year."
Dobmeier came flying through the field to finish in the runner up position, followed by Casey Mack, Wade Nygaard and Dave Glennon.
