Tesch takes down third straight Kasson Klash title, third win in last eight USMTS ‘Hunt’ races

KASSON, Minn. -- Jon Tesch of Watertown, S.D., captured his third victory in the last eight races Sunday night during round 13 of the Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup at the Dodge County Speedway in Kasson, Minn., for the 11th running of the Kasson Klash.

It was also the third straight win for the ‘Wizard of Watertown’ in the Kasson Klash. Four of his 35 career USMTS triumphs have been notched in the traditional Labor Day Weekend event at the 3/8-mile clay oval.

From the pole position, Tesch beat outside front row starter Stormy Scott into the first turn at the drop of the green flag, and then proceeded to lead all 40 laps en route to another $3,000 payday, plus and additional $250 from Stevenson Insurance.

Jason Hughes rebounded from a rough night before to capture the runner-up finish Sunday. A four-car melee knocked the 2010 USMTS national champion out of the main event Saturday night at the Deer Creek Speedway.

Scott held on for a third-place finish while Mike Sorensen and Kelly Shryock wound up fourth and fifth, respectively. Sixth through tenth were Rodney Sanders, Jason Cummins, Daniel Hilsabeck, Jeremy Payne and Brandon Davis, who won here on May 27 by beating Tesch to the checkered flag.

Defending USMTS national champion Ryan Gustin has finished outside the top 10 just seven times in his 29 starts during the USMTS Casey’s Cup Series. Unfortunately for ‘The Reaper,’ three of those have occurred in the last three nights.

A flat tire during Sunday’s main event forced Gustin to the pits for repairs, and he was able to climb no higher than 20th by the time the checkered flag waved.

Sanders’ sixth-place finish was enough to propel the 22-year-old from Happy, Texas, back into the points lead with a narrow eight-point cushion (1,170 to 1,162) over Gustin. It was the fourth lead change at the top of the standings between the two drivers.

Meanwhile, Scott continues to chip away at the deficit, and now sits just 43 points out of first place with 1,147 points. Hughes is fourth with 1,072 markers, followed by Johnny Scott (1,047), Payne (1,003), Shryock (987), Zack VanderBeek (976), Bryan Rowland (944) and Dereck Ramirez (937).

Just two races remain in the Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup prior to the Featherlite Fall Jamboree, Sept. 20-22, where the final three nights of racing will determine the USMTS Casey’s Cup Series champion.
