Ricky Weiss won his first NLRA series feature of the season Saturday night at the Devils Lake Speedway near Doyon, ND. The win is Weiss' 19th career series victory, and his first with the series in nearly two years. Weiss took the lead from early leader Dave Smith, then held off a hard charging Dustin Strand at the line for the victory.
Another John Seitz Memorial is in the books as the tenth running of the event took place at the River Cities Speedway last week. Thursday night was marred by rain delays, but produced a new track record holder in Wissota national point leader Dustin Strand, and a new three-time NLRA series champion in Brad Seng. Friday saw the original Seitz memorial pole sitter, Steve Laursen, earn the pole once again. Saturday saw Elk Mound, Wisconsin native AJ Diemel join Brad Seng as the only two-time champions in the events' history.
