Seidler takes Dacotah checkers with late pass

MANDAN, N.D. (Aug. 10) – Two was the magic number Friday night for Marlyn Seidler, as he scored his second IMCA Modified feature win of the season at Dacotah Speedway with a pass for the lead with two laps to go.

Travis Peery started to pull away from the field early on, but cautions came early and often and worked in Seidler’s favor as he quickly moved through the field from ninth starting to second.

Drivers calmed down after a lap eight restart and a fantastic battle for the lead played out between Peery and Seidler. They raced side-by-side until lapped traffic forced Seidler to follow Peery through the slower cars.

Contact between Peery and a lapped car reset the field for a four-lap shootout. Another yellow regrouped the field with three laps to go but on the final restart of the night, Seidler looked to the outside of Peery.

Finding speed, they again battled side-by-side for the win and with two laps to go, Seidler passed Peery for the lead. Peery quickly felt pressure from behind from Marcus Tomlinson.

Seidler found victory lane while Tomlinson made a last-lap pass to grab second from Peery.

Craig Kastner prevailed in a tussle with Seth Howe-Kellar for his third Mach-1 Sport Compact feature win of the season at Mandan.
