When a stock car racer earns the inside, front row position or pole position for a race, his or her mission is to win.
The mission was completed for every A or main feature winner in all four classes raced Saturday night at North Central Speedway.
Brad Jensen, Brainerd, did one better. He also won his heat race from the pole position to collect a clean sweep.
The other winners were Mike Jones, Onamia, in the Wissota Midwest Modified feature, 16-year old Derek Olson, Brainerd, in NCS Pure Stock, and Mark Johnson, Baxter, in Wissota Street Stock.
Olson's victory was his second consecutive this season. Johnson also collected a clean sweep.
The B feature winners were another polesitter, Kevin Busbey, Brainerd, in Midwest modified and Craig Paul, Crosby, in NCS Pure Stock.
Jensen, whose victory was only his second in three years of racing super stocks, said he owes his success this season to having a new engine and a good handling car.
He also led every lap in Saturday's feature.
"I just got out in front and basically didn't know how hard to drive," he said.
He said he almost spun out in the third and fourth turns. Once this happened he said he knew how to race the rest of the feature.
"I didn't know anybody was behind me or real close or how far a lead I had," he said.
He had some top guns behind him. Dave Mass, who started fifth, finished second and Kurt Loftis, who started fourth, finished third.
Jensen said overall the track became more slippery as the laps counted down.
"The bottom groove was good and tacky," he said.
Johnson, who finished second in the main feature the last two weeks, and Olson also led every lap in their feature wins.
Johnson was followed by Randy Sprague and Wayne Wooden. This was Wooden's highest finish this season after purchasing a new car to start this season.
In the pure stock feature, outside polesitter Louis Wermter finished second and Charlie Peterson, who started seventh, finished third.
For Jones, it was his second feature win in as many weeks (he won the class's B feature last week).
Outstide polesitter Dick Peterson, Elk River, and John Thompson, Brainerd, followed Jones in Saturday's feature. Thompson started seventh.
