GRAND FORKS, ND (July 27) - Last weekend the Valley Oral/S&S Transport
team was back in action with two races on the schedule. As usual, the
weekend started Friday night at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks.
Brad opened the night by cruising to his 12th heat race win of the
season, which put him in the eighth starting position for the 20-lap
Up North Financial main event. As the green flag waved, Brad looked to
move through the field but was stuck in the eighth position in the
On lap nine Brad got by a couple of cars to move into the sixth
position and continued to pick off positions from there.
Brad maneuvered by two more cars in the second half of the feature
to finish in the fourth spot on the fast, but racy three-tenths mile
Seng and crew made the 90-mile trek to Devils Lake Speedway in Crary,
ND for the NLRA Late Model special at the high-banked quarter mile.
Brad finished fourth in heat race number one, which buried him in the
12th starting position for the main event. The two-time NLRA champion
had his work cut out for him, but Seng scratched and clawed his way
through the field to come away with a solid fifth place finish; his
18th top-five result in 20 races.
Next up for the Forks Freightliner team will be River Cities Speedway
on Friday night, where Brad sits second in the points standings just
four points behind Dustin Strand. In the NLRA series standings, Seng
holds a 30 point lead over Shane Edginton.
