KRA Speedway hosted the Kandiyohi County Fair Night Races Thursday evening in Willmar.

All seven classes competed with a number of local racers hitting the dirt track.

Willmar's Taylor Garberich won the Pure Stock A Feature, edging an all-local field. Pennock's Austen Bowman took second place, followed by Brayden Hedtke and Taylor Krueger, both from Atwater.

Matthew Dittman, another Willmar resident, won the first heat and A Feature in his No. 22 Sport Compact car. Clara City's Justin Tammen bounced back from a third place finish in the second heat of the Street Stocks to win the A Feature.
