Sanders picks up win 13 at Deer Creek Speedway
Friday night saw Rodney Sanders return behind the wheel of his Wichita Tank Racing No. 20 Modified at Mississippi Thunder Speedway (Fountain City, Wis.) for the Karl Fenske Memorial. In a field of 28 USRA Modifieds, Sanders jumped up three spots in his heat race to register a fourth place finish. Passing five cars in the 39-lap feature, Rodney notched a runner-up finish behind Dustin Sorensen with Cory Crasper, Lucas Schott, and A.J. Diemel rounding out the Top-5.
After Mother Natured wiped out his original plans at Cedar Lake Speedway (New Richmond, Wis.) on Saturday, Rodney headed to Deer Creek Speedway (Spring Valley, Minn.). Clawing forward three spots in his heat to place third, Sanders locked into the pole position for the feature. With fellow front-row starter Zack VanderBeek grabbing the lead on the initial green flag, Rodney faded back to third. After taking back second following a restart, Sanders slid ahead of VanderBeek for the lead on lap 16. Leading the remaining distance, Rodney Sanders rolled to his 13th win of the season over VanderBeek, Brandon Davis, Jason Cummins, and Dustin Sorensen.Back to News
