Before the main event got underway, the field decided to forgo their traditional four-wide salute to the crowd, and went three wide in honor of the series' Canadian supporters, who are still unable to join us due to border restrictions.
Once the field got back into two-by-two formation, it was Seng, and his No. 12S S&S Transport MB Custom, and Dustin Strand, driver of the No. 71 Walhalla Building Center Millenium, sharing the front row as the field took the initial green.
Strand lead the first three circuits around the high-banked, third mile oval, before Seng took the point on the fourth round.
A caution on the ninth lap saw the field re-stack for the events first which saw Seng retake the point on lap ten.

Seng remained the leader and opened up a decent advantage over Strand, continuing on to victory.
Joey Pederson was second in the No. 7P Vesey Plumbing Victory, with former track champion Brody Troftgruben fourth in the No. 14 Gateway Auto Tech Rocket, and Troy Schill rounding out the top five in the No. 11 Mid Ag Dispatch MB Custom.

Seng commented on his move to the top post race, saying, "because I knew the 71 [Strand] was coming, and you usually run around scared when he's following you."
Strand and Pederson were the heat winners, twelve cars were in attendance on Saturday night.
The series 23rd season continues this Saturday night at the Greenbush Race Park in Greenbush, MN, with the races set to begin at seven o'clock.
