If you come at the king, you best not miss.
That’s what all of the other drivers are starting to find out in the WISSOTA Modifieds division of the Borderland Racing Association.
Brody Strachan of Emo roared to his division-leading fifth checkered flag of the season on Saturday night at the Emo Speedway.
The three-time defending points champ cruised to yet another victory over the likes of Matt DePiero of Fort Frances and Tyler Brown of Rainy River.
Brandon Pelepetz of Emo took fourth while Brady Caul of the Fort rounded out the top five.
Strachan’s win also widened his points lead to 59 over Brown (845-786).
Pelepetz currently sits third in the points standings (717), Ron Korpi of the Fort is fourth (705), while Gary Wilson of Devin is well back in fifth (616).
In WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds action, meanwhile, two-time defending champ Cody Ossachuk of the Fort nailed down his first feature win of the season.
Ossachuk nabbed the checkered flag ahead of James Lambert of the Fort and Wyatt Boyum of International Falls.
