Braaten, Deubert, Robustelli Win At Southern Oregon Speedway

Braaten, Deubert, Robustelli Win
At Southern Oregon Speedway

Jorddon Braaten won his third IMCA Sport Modified Main Event of the season Monday night at Southern Oregon Speedway.  Braaten took the lead from early leader Mike Medel on lap 12 and led the rest of the way.  Medel settled for second.

Miles Deubert withstood a constant threat from title contender Scott Flowers to win the 25 lap Valley Boys Auto Sales Outlaw Pro Stock Main Event.

Camden Robustelli gained the 25 lap SODCA Dwarf Car win after leader Kalvin Mortpn tangled with a lapped car in the final turn, sending both cars rolling.  Robustelli took the lead from Brock Peters on the one lap shootout to the checkered flag with Peters settling for second.

Point leader Jorddon Braaten won his third 25 lap IMCA Sport Modified Main Event.  Willie McFall led four laps before being passed by Mike Medel in Turn 4 with Braaten following closely into second.  Braaten made a low pass in turn 4 of the 12th lap to grab the lead.  From there, Braaten pulled away to a satisfying victory.  Medel settled for another second place finish ahead of Jimmy Lipke, A.J. Parker and David Marble.

2014 Street Stock champion Miles Deubert won the 25 lap Outlaw Pro Stock Main Event.  Deubert led from the start as current point runnerup Scott Flowers followed closely into second.  Previous Medford winner Rocky Nash was an early third, but he spun in Turn 2 on lap seven, handing third to point leader Steve Borror.  However, Borror pitted on lap nine.  Deubert had Flowers as his shadow the rest of the way for the close 1-2 finish.  Nash rebounded for a third place finish ahead of Scott Bennett and Matt Harlow.

Camden Robustelli won the 25 lap SODCA Dwarf Car Main Event in dramatic fashion.  Sunday night Yreka winner Kalvin Morton was coming out of Turn 4 with the checkered flag in sight when he tangled with the sixth place car of Randy Slater as he was lapping him.  That sent both cars flipping.  Robustelli shot into the early lead, but soon he had Morton and Peters behind him and next to him.  Peters made a high move in Turn 4 to get the lead on lap 13, but Morton raced underneath him for the lead in Turn 4 two laps later.  Morton pulled away when he had his misfortune with Slater.  B. Peters had the lead on the restart, but Robustelli raced by when the green flag flew.  Robustelli led the final lap with B. Peters settling for second ahead of Rob Gergel and Paul Haslow.

Racing continues next Saturday with a Sprint Car Speedweek race.  Mini Stocks and SODCA Dwarf Cars will also be racing.  Friday night will feature an Outlaw Kart race on the smaller track.  For further information, check out
