WINNIPEG, Manitoba (May 22) — Brad Seng of Grand Forks, N.D., captured the thrilling Northern LateModel Racing Association season opener at Red River Co-op Speedway for his 11th career series victory. Seng, who started sixth, denied 10th starting Ricky Weiss of St. Francis, Manitoba, his first career NLRA victory. Weiss was second followed by hometown driver Mike Balcaen, and a pair of Grand Forks drivers, Howie Schill and Steve Anderson. | Slideshow

A three-way battling developed over the closing laps among Seng, Weiss and Balcaen. With Seng leading, Weiss took second from Balcaen with two laps remaining and set his sights on the leader. Weiss made a last-ditch move to get past Seng with an outside move in turns three and four on the last lap, but he fell inches short in the drag race to the checkered flag with Balcaen just behind in third.
