Pat Doar Wins the Prelude to the Johnny
Winnipeg Manitoba, Canada's Mike Balcaen (10) seemed to be in the hunt to challenge for the lead from 3rd position, until an incident while attempting a pass on the inside of Mehder (55c) with 16 to go ending his night. Meanwhile Brad Seng (12s) systematically works his way to the front getting by Mehder (55c), Adam Hensel (33x) and A.J. Diemel (58) and finally Doar (11d) to lead one lap. Doar (11d) showed that he didn't make the trip from New Richmond, Wisconsin to finish 2nd, and on the next lap reclaimed the lead to hold off a final charge by Seng (12s) to win by a margin of 0.131 seconds at the checkers. Strand's (71s) 12th place finish was enough to win the 2013 NLRA points title over Brad Seng (12s). Full Results
