Grand Forks, North Dakota – Dustin Strand raced to the Modified victory on Saturday night in his RealTruck.com #71 Q&Z Plumbing & Heating/Millenium Race Car at Greenbush Race Park. The third triumph of the year for Strand had a little, extra-special meaning.
“Not only did I win, but dad jumped in my backup car and finished 2nd,” Dustin noted with a big smile. “It’s been a while since we raced together,so to get a 1-2 finish was really something special for both of us.”
On Thursday night Dustin Strand made his first trip of the season to Norman County Raceway (Ada, Minnesota) to compete in the IMCA Modified division.
