Event Preview: Devils Lake Speedway

CRARY, N.D. (August 2, 2017) – This Saturday night the Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA Sprints make their fourth and final appearance of the season to Devils Lake Speedway. The event will mark the 35th visit to Devils Lake in series history.

When the NOSA Sprints last visited DLS on July 22nd, Wade Nygaard picked up his series leading 13th career win at the high-banked quarter-mile clay oval. Nygaard held off Casey Mack and Nick Omdahl to claim what was his second consecutive win. Since then, Nygaard has made it three straight wins on the NOSA tour, however, that steak will come to an end this weekend as he heads down to Knoxville to compete at the 360 Nationals.

That leaves the door wide open for a host of hungry competitors.

NOSA point leader, Austin Pierce, has won at every active NOSA track besides two, with Devils Lake being one of them. The driver of the Opp Construction / Lithia Ford No. 2A hasn’t finished outside of the top five since May 19th and hopes his consistency will lead to a win on Saturday night.

Casey Mack has the second-most wins at Devils Lake with four, including a win earlier this season. The East Grand Forks, Minnesota driver has the momentum of back-to-back top five finishes behind him entering this weekend’s action.

Nick Omdahl will be another driver to keep you eye on. Omdahl scored his first career NOSA win at DLS last year. On July 8th of this year, he backed up that win with another. Omdahl finished third in his last visit at DLS and will be looking to grab another win on Saturday.

The Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA Sprints will also be racing on Friday at River Cities Speedway.

Racing starts at 7pm on both Friday and Saturday.
