Seng Makes History - Peterson Sweeps Midwest Mods
Casey Mack and Ryan Johnson also winners
On the weekend one would come in thinking just about anyone in the a-main field of 25 had a chance of winning the event. Racing 92 laps is a long distance and just about anything is possible in that time span and distance, Especially with a competition red flag period for refueling at lap 32.
Seng started in 4th position, and was patient while looking for a line his car would work well on. At lap 52 Seng had worked on Anthony Diemel (58) from Elk Mound, Wisconsin, and made his move to the lead and did not look back.
Prior to the competition break, the one driver who stood out was Cody Skytland (11s) of Fargo, ND starting 21st and had gained 11 spots on the field before the refueling stop.
The Breakdown on how the A-main was formed:
The field was scored in the heats on passing points and heats were set by draw. The top 20 in passing points at the end of the heats raced in Friday's dash and were locked in for Saturday's a main. With a field of 2 B-mains set with the remaining drivers, and 16 drivers who stayed for the A-Main from the dash, 4 drivers from each B main transferred to tag the rear of the A Main. The Promoter's provisional was awarded to Shane Edginton (5b) of Winnipeg Manitoba, Canada to fill the 25th spot.
Track Officials were heard commenting that Brad Seng was so excited to get this win, Seng was heard celebrating on his way to the tech area before going to Victory Lane. Numerous drivers and fans praised the RCS track crew as the track had multiple lines of racing all weekend, and the drivers who raced provided everyone with a great show.
