Racing Season at River Cities Hits Halfway Point

GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - The racing at River Cities Speedway hits the halfway point on Friday, which means it's time for the mid-season track championships.

GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - The racing at River Cities Speedway hits the halfway point on Friday, which means it's time for the mid-season track championships.

When the heats start at 7:30 p.m., the cars will be lined up according to their point totals.

By design, this set-up rewards drivers who have been racing at the track weekly, which means there should be some Grand Forks drivers among the leaderboards.

That includes Brad Seng, who will start Friday on the pole in the late models division. It's good news for one of the track's favorites who has been on a roll, but not so good news for the other drivers.

"The car has been awesome. We have our routine that we do every week and for whatever reason, our car adjusts to this race track. It's just fun to ride," Seng said.

"It's tough to make up points, especially at mid-season because they line us up by points. All the fast guys are going to start at the front, so even if you get lucky and win, you are only gaining a point or two over the next guy, so that's tough," driver Dustin Strand said.
