SEDALIA, Mo. (Sept. 20, 2016) – Seth Bergman returned to Victory Lane last Saturday at Missouri State Fair Speedway.
It was his first ASCS Warrior Region win of the season and his first career triumph at the huge half-mile oval, where he took advantage of a little luck to garner his sixth total victory this season.
“We’ve been in contention to win there a couple of times this season so it was nice to be able to seal the deal,” he said.
Bergman kicked off the event by earning a third-place result in a heat race, which locked him into the feature redraw. He pulled the No. 3 to start the main event on the inside of the second row.
“We were up to second and chasing Jonathan Cornell when he had an issue with a few laps to go so that put us in the lead,” he said. “I just made sure I hit my marks and was consistent and it worked in our favor.”
The win gives Bergman 24 top 10s in his last 30 races.
“We’ve been pretty consistent, but I’m looking to be consistently winning races,” he said. “It’s great to get back to Victory Lane and hopefully we can add a couple more this weekend.”
Bergman will return to Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition this Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., for the Hockett/McMillin Memorial.
“It’s a big event and we haven’t gotten the results we’ve wanted there the last few years,” he said. “We have some top 10s at Lucas Oil Speedway, but we’re looking for wins and hopefully we can get our first one there this weekend.”
Bergman placed ninth during his lone visit this season. That gave him five consecutive years with at least one top-10 finish at the track.
