Pfeiffer, Anderson get NLRA victories in western N.D.
A pair of home-state drivers grabbed victories on the Northern LateModel Racing Association during a July 25-26 doubleheader in the western part of the state. Steven Pfeiffer of Bowbells, N.D., won Saturday at Southwest Speedway in Dickinson and Steve Anderson of Grand Forks, N.D., won at Williston Basin Speedway.
Pfeiffer notched his first career NLRA victory in a new car while Anderson grabbed just his second career victory on the series and first since 2002.
At Southwest Speedway, the third-starting Pfeiffer made contact with polesitter and race-long leader Cody Skytland of Fargo, N.D., in turn four in taking command on the 17th of 25 laps. Skytland slid back to fourth but still moved into the NLRA points lead. Kelly Hample of Billings, Mont., was second and Blaine Doppler of Bismarck, N.D., rallied from his 17th starting spot to finish third. Thirteen of 24 starters were running at the finish.
At Williston Basin, the polesitting Anderson raced to his first victory since Sept. 1, 2002, at Sheyenne River Speedway in Lisbon, N.D. Wayne Johnson of Minot, N.D., was second followed by Skytland, Jeremy Keller of Mandan, N.D., and Hank Berry of Sidney, Mont.
