John Kaanta heads to victory in Proctor's Silver 1000.
What won the race: Second-starting John Kaanta of Elk Mound, Wis., led all 40 laps, outdueling Jake Redetzke of Eau Claire, Wis., for a $3,800 victory in Proctor Speedway's Silver 1000. Kaanta's third Silver 1000 victory included lap money and a $500 bonus atop the event's regular purse.
Key notes: Kaanta also won in the race in 2003-'04 and becomes the fifth driver to win the race three times, joining Rick Aukland, Rick Egersforf, Jeff Provinzino and Brady Smith. ... Cory Jorgenson's slower car slowed Kaanta late, allowing Don Shaw and then Jake Redetzke to get within striking distance, but he held them off. ... Three cautions slowed the race: Kyle Peterlin's lap-11 spin, Jeff Provinzino's lap-19 spin and a Kevin Carlson-Zach Wohler's tangle on the lap-19 restart. ... Proctor hosted the first of three Labor Day specials for WISSOTA competitors. ...The 43rd annual race was presented by Brakes Plus, Proctor Builders, Just Ask Rental and Como Oil & Propane.
On the move: Harry Hanson of Eveleth, Minn., charged from the 25th starting position to finish eighth.
