The event at Greenbush is scheduled to be the 21st appearance by the series at the track. Unfortunately the track, which opened in 1991, remained closed throughout the 2012 season. But weekly racing did return to the three-eighths mile dirt oval last season. The tracks' long straightaways and tight corners produce some of the closest racing on the NLRA calendar.
Pederson's win was during the series last visit to the speedway in August of 2011. The hard chargers were Bill Mooney and Greg Ferris, with each passing eight cars to round out the top five with fourth and fifth place finishes respectively. Racing on Saturday night begins at 7pm.
Last seasons' NLRA event at the Buffalo River Race Park near Glyndon, MN was won by Zach Johnson, who defeated Dustin Strand for the third of his four series victories last season. Strand's performance was won of his nine runner-up finishes that went a long way towards his winning of the 2013 NLRA series championship. Brad Seng, Mike Balcaen and John Kaanta, who started 24th rounded out the top five. Sunday's racing begins at 6pm.
