Nygaard Gets Fourth Win of the Season at River Cities
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (July 6, 2018) – Austin Pierce and Nick Omdahl brought the Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA Sprints to green from the front row for the 25-lap feature. Omdahl got a great start out of turn four to take the lead on the opening lap over Pierce. Omdahl found himself in lapped traffic by lap three, which allowed Pierce to close in. On the following circuit, Chris Ranten, who was running fourth, spun to a stop down the back stretch. On the restart, Wade Nygaard moved from fourth to second before Pierce made it three wide in turn one to go from third to the lead. Omdahl was shuffled from first to fourth as Hastings also got by him for third.
Chris Ranten, who had made his way from the tail of the field to restart third, briefly took the lead in turn two after putting a big slider on Nygaard. Ranten hit the cushion and wheelied down the back stretch which gave the lead back to Nygaard. The race was slowed a few more times with under 10 to go. One of the cautions included a red flag for Shane Roemeling. Roemeling was okay.
Under the red, Hastings went to the pits for a mechanical issue. Nygaard went on to score his fourth win of the season over Ranten and Omdahl. Pierce charged all the way back to a fourth place finish as Bob Martin rounded out the top five.
