With the season starting to come
to a close in the Midwest, Tim Kaeding and his Lunstra
Motorsports team are continuing to run well, as the San
Jose, CA driver raced his way to three Top-Five finishes
over the weekend.
“Last week I said I thought we had
found something, and we backed that up by coming out and
running very well all weekend long,” Tim Kaeding said.
Friday night the NSL took to the
high-banked Eagle Raceway in Eagle, NE where Kaeding
timed the Dammer Trucking/Folkens Bros. Trucking/Sioux
Falls Ford No. 3 entry in second fastest.
Racing from fourth to second in his
heat race, Kaeding would line up in the third row for
the 20-lap Nebraska Cup feature event. On a night where
passing was at a premium, Kaeding would battle the likes
of Austin McCarl and Brian Brown as he raced his way to
a fifth place finish.
Heading to Cedar Lake Speedway on
Saturday night, the “TK Express” would qualify seventh
fastest in time trials, before finishing third in his
heat race. Lining up on the front row of the A Main, TK
would fall to the second spot as Brian Brown shot to the
lead, before Terry McCarl put him in the third spot a
A lap six restart would see Kaeding
and Bronson Maeschen battle for show position with
Kaeding ultimately settling into the fourth spot.
Running solidly in the fourth position, Kaeding would
feel pressure from Friday night winner, Billy Balog, for
the fourth spot, but Kaeding was having nothing of it as
he took fourth at the checkered flag.
Sunday night would be the season
finale event at the Huset’s Speedway and subsequently
the final race ever under the Huset’s Speedway banner as
new ownership will take over in 2016.
Timing in fifth during time trials,
Kaeding would again pick up a third place finish in his
heat race aboard the Yager Agriculture Supply/EMI/Matt’s
Repair backed machine.
In the feature event, Kaeding would
come on late as he was able to race his way by Lynton
Jeffrey and Dusty Zomer to get into the second spot, as
he chased after Terry McCarl.
Looking for a way into the race
lead, Kaeding would settle for second, as he also
finished second in the season long championship
“I have to thank Dave and Jamie
Lunstra for continuing to support us weekly,” Tim
Kaeding said. “I would have loved to get them the final
win at Huset’s but I think they were proud of what we

like to thank Dammer Trucking, Folkens Bros. Trucking,
Sioux Falls Ford, Yager Agriculture Supply, EMI, Matt’s
Repair, Octane Ink, and Trac2Trail Arctic Cat for their
support in 2015.
TK and the Lunstra Motorsports team are now set to
battle the World of Outlaws this Friday night at the
Clay County Fairgrounds and on Saturday night at the
Deer Creek Speedway.
