Balcaen started on the pole with Joey Pederson lining up to his outside in his No. 7P B&E Meats Victory. Pederson, however, brought out the events first caution on lap seven.
That started a series of misfortunes for Pederson, as he lined up at the back of the field on the restart, and was involved in a five car pileup.
The wreck ended the night for Pederson, Cole Schill and his No. 44 Mid Ag Dispatch MasterSbilt by JMR, Tom Corcoran, driver of the No. T1 Forks Finest Auto Body MB Custom, and rookie Jesse Teunis, and his No. 70 Performance Auto MasterSbilt.
The only driver able to continue was Steffen Snare, as he continued on to an eighth place finish in his No. 71S High Mark Snomobile Rentals Bloomquist.
Balcaen continued to lead on the restart, as Seng moved past Shane Edginton and his No. 4 Schill Construction Victory.
Edginton would lose another spot to Troy Schill, driver of the No. 11 Todd's Electric MasterSbilt, moving into the final podium spot.
Balcaen at speed in Winnipeg last Thursday night.
Seng set his sights on Balcaen, eventually reeling him in, and pulling even with eight laps remaining. Seng was able to nose past Balcaen at the flag stand with six to go, but the 1991 Greenbush Track Champion Balcaen was able to move back by to score his first Greenbush victory since 2008.
Seng came home second, with Schill third, Ryan Corbett fourth in the No. C4 Diamond Lounge MasterSbilt, and Edginton rounding out the top five.
Bill Mooney was able to cap off a remarkable comeback by finishing sixth in the No. 2 Lithia Toyota of Grand Forks MasterSbilt. Mooney went for a wild ride over the top of turn three in his heat race, and was able to make repairs with help from a trio of Winnipeg Modified drivers and Jesse Teunis.
Mooney was also the hard charger, while nursing his damaged mount forward from the 15th starting spot, while also damaging the right rear again in the five car pileup on lap seven.
Point leader, and two-time series champion Dustin Strand brought the No. 71 Keewatin Truck Service Millenium SRT home seventh, with Steffen Snare eighth, Brody Troftgruben ninth in the No. 14 R&R Contracting Rocket, and Steinbach, Manitoba's Mike Martin rounding out the top ten in his No. 55 Reimer Overhead Door Pierce.
Five-time series champion Mike Balcaen cut Strand's point lead in half with the win, as Strand will take a 46 point advantage into this weekend's action at the Jamestown Speedway on Saturday night, and at the Nodak Speedway in Minot on Sunday.
