Video of Mark Dobmeier @DobmeierRacing in @RydellCars Victory Lane Holds After Spectacular Spinning and Spinning
May 6th 2016 Rick Rea from RickRea.com recorded Mark Dobmeier making an evasive move at The World Famous Legendary Bullring River Cities Speedway to avoid crashing into a Sprint Car that collected the wall but Mark still collided and damaged his wing and then spun 3 times avoiding coming to a complete stop to get his position back. Mark came back to take the win!
Twenty-five Buffalo Wild Wings NOSA 410 Sprint Cars made up the field for the 25-lap main event. The father-son duo of Brenden and Zach Wilde led the field to the green, but third place starter Cory Mack led the opening circuit.
Brent Loftsgard and Robertson led the field of 18 Wells Concrete Street Stocks to the green flag. Robertson put the Tires Plus #10R into the lead at the get go as Bryce Reimer, Dan Aberle, and Loftsgard battled for the runner-up spot. The trio battled three wide, which allowed veteran Street Stock driver, Jim Geringer, to sneak up and steal the third spot away on lap three. Geringer, who started back in seventh, then grabbed the second position on the following circuit and set his sights on Robertson.

GRAND FORKS, ND (May 6) - Mike Balcaen is the second-most winningest driver in River Cities Speedway history, but the Canadian pilot hadn’t visited RydellCars.com Victory Lane since June 20, 2014. There has been several instances since then were Balcaen has put his Black Diamond #10 in position to pick up a win, but blown motors, late-race cautions, flat tires, and even a rock puncturing the radiator while leading has kept him out of the winners circle.
Great Weather And Great Racing Friday May 6th
May 5th 2016 Grand Forks, ND:
Great Weather and Great Racing are two things that go together like Cheese on a Cheeseburger with cool beverages with good friends on a summer evening. All of which will be experienced this Friday at The World Famous Legendary Bullring River Cities Speedway. Mid 70's and overcast is the forecast when the green flag drops this Friday at The Bullring. A great time will be had by all that is for sure! This year has started early, very competitive & thrilling leaving everyone wanting more.
Last week the WISSOTA NLRA Late Models had a surprise visit from Donny Schatz in his NLRA Late Model and in the heat race Donny had the fastest lap times in the ending laps as you can see by the stats in the image below, but in the last lap with 2 turns to go local NLRA drivers Steve Anderson Jr and Mike Balcaen held 1 and 2 at the finish and Donny Schatz landed 3rd at the line.
