GRAND FORKS, N.D. (September 9, 2018) – The 12th edition of the John Seitz Memorial at River Cities Speedway may be one Brad Seng and the S&S Transport team may want to forget. The week prior, Seng’s primary car was destroyed at an NLRA event at Viking Speedway in Alexandria, Minn. Seng’s backup car was off being updated at MB Customs in Wisconsin, but MB Customs fabricator, AJ Diemel, came through and allowed Seng to run his backup car for the biggest Late Model race on the River Cities Speedway schedule.
Rain Thursday night through Friday afternoon made for a hectic weekend. Seng finished fifth in his heat race on Friday, which put him in a B-main for Saturday night’s finale. Seng transferred through the B with a win and started the 92-lap, $9,200-to-win feature in the 18th position.
Seng moved forward throughout the first half of the race, reaching the eighth position on lap 50, but eventually faded in the latter stages to come home in 15th.
The Prelude to the Johnny, originally scheduled for Thursday night, was run on Saturday afternoon. Despite the River Cities Speedway track crew’s best efforts, the track took rubber in the opening laps of the feature, making passing extremely difficult. Seng completed the 25-lap feature in the seventh position.
The event also served as the 2018 NLRA season finale. Seng finished the season fourth in NLRA points.
Seng will be in action next weekend at I-94 Speedway in Fergus Falls, Minn. for the WISSOTA 100.
