What won the race: Taking the lead from Don Shaw on the 58th lap, A.J. Diemel of Elk Mound, Wis., controlled the rest of the 92-lap feature for his second John Seitz Memorial triumph and a career-high $10,092 payday at River Cities Speedway. Diemel's margin of victory over Shaw was 1.365 seconds.
Key notes: Diemel, who has now finished on the podium in the race for five consecutive seasons, previously won the 2014 John Seitz Memorial. … Polesitter Steve Laursen led the first 22 circuits. … Shaw took the lead from Laursen on lap 23. … Diemel moved to second on the 31st lap. … The feature was slowed by a red flag with 32 laps complete. … Laursen fell out after 41 laps. … Diemel, who drives car No. 58, took the lead from Shaw on the 58th lap. … Jake Redetzke took the runner-up spot from Shaw on lap 61 and held it for nearly 20 laps; Redetzke drastically fell back in the final 10 circuits to finish 16th. … The feature's final caution came on lap 80. ... Twenty drivers were running at the finish. ... WISSOTA's 10th annual John Seitz Memorial weekend was presented by Buffalo Wild Wings. ... With a nod to Seitz's familiar car No. 92, the event honored the late Bemidji, Minn., driver, who passed away on Feb. 4, 2007. ... Action kicked off Thursday with the Prelude to the Johnny, a $1,500-to-win event won by Dustin Strand that wrapped up the season for the Northern LateModel Racing Association
On the move: Defending race winner Chad Mahder of Eau Claire, Wis., rallied from 18th to finish sixth after briefly running as high as fourth.
Winner's sponsors: Diemel's MB Customs Race Car is sponsored by Beltline Body Shop, Bobcat of Morris, Mars Race Cars and Prestige Custom Cabinetry.
Points chase: Dustin Strand of Grand Forks, N.D., was crowned the track's WISSOTA Late Model champion in 2016.
