The AMSOIL Speedway finished off the month of July Sunday evening with the Twin Ports Twin 25s Late Model special.

The event included the first of two 25-lap main events of the OneMain Financial WISSOTA PolyDome Dirt Track Series Challenge Series race.

It was the third Challenge Series race over the weekend and drew the largest contingent with 35 cars in attendance. Also on the card were the WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds and Pure Stocks.

Four heat races and a pair of B Features qualified racers for the first of two 24-car features along with a provisional starter to make the field of 25.

Travis Budisalovich won the first 25-lap feature and Rick Hanestad won the second feature. Both were also heat winners.

In other action, Skeeter Estey won his fourth WISSOTA Midwest Modified feature of the season at the speedway, and Dustin Follett completed another WISSOTA Pure Stock sweep for his 13th feature win and fifth at the Speedway this season.

Racing resumes at the AMSOIL Speedway on Aug. 10 when the U.S. Modified Touring Series comes to Superior.
