Brad Seng has won two of the past four NLRA titles and he's in the mix for his fourth overall title this season.
The late model circuit's title won't be decided for quite a while but local late model drivers can take a big step toward a season title depending on what happens this weekend.
"We had a DNF in Jamestown and that set us back," said Seng. "But we'll be racing as hard as we can and hope for some good finishes."
The NLRA is in the midst of four-straight nights of racing. Seng won Wednesday night's NLRA feature at the Norman County Raceway in Ada, Minn., where the circuit raced again Thursday night.
Tonight, the NLRA will race at the Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo before wrapping up the grinding schedule Saturday night at River Cities Speedway, where the track is hosting racing this weekend in conjunction with the annual Greater Grand Forks Fair. Entering Thursday night's show in Ada, Winnipeg's Shane Edginton led the NLRA season points race with Seng a close second.
The field of late models at RCS on Saturday likely will be higher than in previous weeks.
"We could see 25 to 30 cars," said Seng.
And it's been awhile since late models have raced during fair week in Grand Forks.
"I'm actually looking forward to racing and then being able to take my daughter and go to the fair," said Seng. "I can't remember the last time I've been able to do that."
Before the Saturday night races, a driver meet-and-greet has been scheduled in front of the RCS grandstand beginning at 4:30 p.m.
Tonight, NOSA sprint cars will race at RCS. There will be two sprint features. Legends, lightning sprints and sling-shots will fill out the field tonight with the sprints and Saturday night with the late models.
It's fan appreciation night both nights at RCS. With a paid admission of $5 to the fair, fans will be admitted free to the races each night.
On Sunday, a 200-lap enduro is scheduled at RCS.
