BRANDON, S.D. (Aug. 9, 2016) – Seth Bergman returned to Victory Lane on Sunday at Badlands Motor Speedway following a successful performance during the 26th annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals.
Bergman capped the busy weekend by taking advantage of a good draw at Badlands Motor Speedway, where he won his heat race from the pole position to make the feature redraw. He then garnered the pole position for the $5,000-to-win event.
“Everyone is so even in racing these days so track position is always important,” he said. “We were fortunate in our draws and we capitalized.”
Bergman led the distance of the main event to pick up his fifth triumph of the season and second at the high-banked track.
The strong result came on the heels of a solid performance during the 360 Knoxville Nationals at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. The event began for Bergman with preliminary action last Friday when he qualified 18th quickest before placing fourth in a heat race to lock into the 11 th starting position in the main event.
Bergman battled for a top 10 throughout the feature before ending 11th. That ranked him 25th – out of nearly 100 competitors – in overall points and started him fifth in the B Main on Saturday.
Bergman advanced a pair of positions in the consolation race to garner a transfer into the main event, which he started 21st. It marked his first career A Main start at the 360 Knoxville Nationals.
“The first goal when you head to the 360 Knoxville Nationals is to make Saturday’s A Main, but I think we have a car capable of winning the event,” he said. “We’re proud to achieve a new goal and we’ll work hard to improve on that next year.”
Bergman ended with a 17th-place finish.
