GRAND FORKS, ND (June 12) - Racing continues this Friday night at River Cities Speedway with WISSOTA-sanctioned Street Stocks, Midwest Modifieds, Late Modesl, the NOSA 410 Sprint Cars, and the fan favorite School Bus races.
Last week at the Bullring, Brad Seng took advantage of a late race caution to get by both Steve Anderson and Mike Balcaen to pick up his 44th RCS Late Model win and 51st career win overall at RCS.
Seng's win, combined with a Joey Pederson DNF (Did Not Finish), put the driver of the S&S Transport #12S atop the Late Model points standings by 15 markers.
Austin Pierce leads the way in the RCS Sprint Car points standings, but only by a mere four points over Wade Nygaard. Greg Nikitenko is right there as well, sitting just seven points behind Pierce.
Ricky Hamel won two feature races to open up the season at River Cities Speedway. Those great runs have him sitting 11 points ahead of Austin Hunter in a very competitive Midwest Modified division.
Jim Geringer has yet to park his SK Reality #12 Street Stock in RydellCars.com victory lane in 2015, but the Harwood, ND driver has a pair of runner-up finishes and sits nine marker ahead of newlywed, Daniel Aberle.
As mentioned before, the School Buses will be in action throughout the night. They may be the slowest class on the track, but the drivers make it some of the most exciting racing as they beat and bang with a "bring me the trophy or bring me the steering wheel" type of attitude.
Hot laps are at 6:30pm and racing, presented by Big Jim's Tire and El Roco, starts at 7:00pm.
