For the second straight year, Estevan’s Aaron Turnbull has won the John Seitz Memorial Race.
And he’s the first to win it in back to back years.
Turnbull won the 92-lap late model race, which carries a $9,200 prize for the winner, t the River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D. Fifty late model cars from throughout the U.S. midwest were vying to win the prestigious event; Turnbull was the only Canadian driver.
Turnbull finished second in his qualifying heat to punch his ticket for the feature race that night. But before the feature, he was entered in the past champions race, where he finished fourth.
In the feature, he wound up taking top spot ahead of two Wisconsin drivers, A.J. Diemel of Elk Mound, and Jesse Glenz of Cadott.
The Mercury will have more details as they become available.
