Seng collects 40th career NLRA victory at Jamestown Speedway

By Spieker Promotions

Brad Seng parked the No. 12S S&S Transport MB Custom in victory lane Saturday night at the Jamestown Speedway in Jamestown, ND. The win was Seng’s fourth with the series at the quarter-mile oval at Jamestown, and his first since 2014. It’s also Seng’s 40th with the series, which tops the all-time wins list.Aberdeen, South Dakota veteran Curt Gelling, and Trent Grager led the field to the initial green of the main event.

Gelling took the point through turns one and two at the start, and brought former Jamestown native Ryan Mikkelson with him, as the latter moved into the runner-up spot at the completion of the first circuit.

Seng then moved past Grager into third, as Cole Schill rounded out the top five in the No. 44 Mid Ag Dispatch MB Custom through two laps.

The first caution of the race came on the fourth lap for a spinner in turn one, setting up the first Delaware double-file restart of the 25 lap event.

Mikkelson chose to go low for the restart, as Gelling resumed the race as the leader.

The lead trio went three-wide for the lead at the start/finish line at the end of the fourth lap, with Gelling barely edging out Seng and Mikkelson to keep the lead.

Seng took the top spot on the exit of turn two on the following lap, however, and began to build a lead shortly thereafter.

At the halfway point, Seng had built an advantage of nearly a full straightaway, as Mikkelson and Schill battled for second. Seng began working lapped traffic as the race neared the ten to go mark.

Two final caution periods with four laps remaining gave Schill and Mikkelson one last shot to chase down Seng for the victory.

​Mikkelson switched from low to high between the two restarts, eventually playing in his favor, as he was able to keep second, as Seng continued on to victory.
