GRAND FORKS,N.D. (July 26, 2019) – It looked as though the Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA Sprint Car feature was going to produce a first-time winner on Friday. Ty Hanten, Shane Roemeling and Jordan Adams, all of whom have not yet won at River Cities Speedway, ran inside the top three, respectively, in the early going of the 25-lap main event.
The first caution flew at the halfway point. On the ensuing restart, Croaker threw a slider on Hanten in attempt to take the lead, but Hanten kept his foot on the throttle and powered around the outside of Croaker to keep the point. On the following lap, Hastings and Adams both slid Croaker as Hastings went from fourth to second.
Hastings took the lead from Hanten with eight laps to go, but just as he did, the caution flew.
On the restart, Hanten jumped out to the lead once again as Pierce moved by Hastings for second. Hanten looked to have the win in hand with a 10 car length lead with five laps to go, but the final caution flew with four to go. Pierce executed a textbook slide job in turns one and two on the restart to take the lead from Hanten. Once out front, the two-time NOSA champion drove away from the rest of the field and collected his third consecutive feature win at the Bullring. Hastings came home second, followed by Hanten.
