SPRING VALLEY, Minn. – Dustin Sorensen nailed down the biggest win of his young career Sunday night as he led all 25 laps en route to capturing the USRA B-Mod main event at during the 16th Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree.

The 13-year-old son of many-time Deer Creek Speedway champion Mike Sorensen started the feature race from the pole position and was never challenged in the 32-car race that featured a three-wide start.

The win was worth $1,000, and may be the first and only victory for the youngster in the Iron Man Challenge as he announced during his victory lane interview that a move to full-blown Modifieds was his plan for 2015.

Shaun Walski gave chase but could never get close enough to make a serious challenge for the lead and had to settle for the runner-up paycheck.

USRA B-Mod national points leader Chad Clancy passed a dozen drivers from his 15th starting spot and garnered third, track champion Jacob Bleess wound up fourth and Cullen DeRuyter finished where he started in fifth.

The finish:

Dustin Sorenson, Shaun Walski, Chad Clancy, Jacob Bleess, Cullen DeRuyter, Alex Williamson, Cory Crapser, Kadden Kath, Trevor Fecht, Erik Kanz, Mike Striegel, Dan Christopher, Michael Wytaske, A.J.
