Chad Becker on his way to a $10,000 victory at Dakota State Fair Speedway.
What won the race: Second-starting Chad Becker of Aberdeen, S.D., led all the way at Dakota State Fair Speedway to win $10,000 and the WISSOTA 100 finale. Fifth-starting Ricky Weiss slipped by Jeff Provinzino on the final lap to grab second place.
Quotable: "I'll tell you what, we worked on it all weekend," Becker said. "We kind of had some problems the first night and had to go at it hard the next two nights. I knew the car was good and (we were) confident in it. They dropped the green and we were gone, and it felt good."
