MENOMONIE, WI (April 15) – Brad Seng and the S&S Transport team made the haul out to Red Cedar Speedway last Friday night to open up the 2016 racing season. A good field of Late Models were signed in to battle at the semi-banked 3/8th mile dirt oval. Seng quickly knocked off what little rust he might have accrued over the winter and picked up the heat race win, which put him on the pole for the Randy Buss Icebreaker Classic main event.
With Fall Creek, Wisconsin’s Jesse Glenz lined up to his outside, Seng grabbed the lead at the drop of the green flag. As things got sorted out in the early stages, Darrell Nelson and Rick Hanestad moved into second and third behind Seng.
In a matter of laps, however, Nelson found his groove and drove past Seng for the lead.
Once Nelson was out front, he checked out from the field and went on to take the win by nearly a half lap. At the checkers, Seng held on to the runner-up position by a comfortable margin over Hanestad.
Seng will look to continue his strong start to the 2016 season at the River Cities Speedway opener on April 29th in Grand Forks. Seng is the winningest Late Model driver at the speedway with 46 victories and will be in search of his fourth Late Model track championship at the legendary bullring.
