It's Friday and you all know what that means, it's racing day at River Cities Speedway.

So let's get right to the action happening out at the Bullring.

In heat one of the street stocks. It's James Meagher who's from right here in Grand Forks taking the checkered flag.

Now to the midwest mods where in heat three Matt Schow in the 2S car gets the win.

Then we go to the late model races where you saw at six Kelsi Pederson, this is her dad Joey Pederson getting the W.

And last but not least, it's the sprint cars where in heat two Nick Omdahl comes around to take the checkered flag.
