Inside Line Promotions – BRANDON, S.D. (May 31, 2016) – Seth Bergman returned to Victory Lane on Sunday at Badlands Motor Speedway, where he won a heat race before claiming the main event.
The win was his fourth of the season and his first at the high-banked track since August 2014.
“We needed to get back to winning races so that was a good boost for our team,” he said. “We had a good starting position for both the heat race and the main event and we were able to capitalize.”
The triumph capped a solid weekend for Bergman, who also competed on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. Bergman qualified eighth quickest and placed third in a heat race before he maneuvered to his first top five of the season at the half-mile oval.
“We are making great strides at Knoxville and have improved every time we’ve been there this year,” he said after finishing fifth. “We want to make as many laps as we can at Knoxville before the 360 Knoxville Nationals in August and I think we’re gaining on where we need to be.”
Bergman will take his momentum to Indiana and Michigan this week as he returns to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition on Wednesday at Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Ind., before events on Friday at Hartford Speedway in Hartford, Mich., and Saturday at Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Ind.
“We haven’t been to any of those tracks, but I doubt any of the other ASCS National drivers have either,” he said. “We are used to going to new tracks and having to adapt quickly so we shouldn’t have any problem doing that this weekend and being able to contend for the lead.”
Bergman ranks eighth in the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour championship standings, but he is only 48 points out of fourth place.
