Starting field set for 92-lap Seitz feature after Minnesota driver wins pole position Friday night at River Cities Speedway

Well, he’ll see how good it is on Saturday night when the green flag drops on the 15th annual John Seitz Memorial Late Model Invitational 92-lap feature.

Mass won Friday night’s 15-lap pole dash at the Seitz, earning him the top starting spot in one of the region’s biggest-paying late model races.

The winner of the 92-lap feature will take home $9,200. Mass’ win in the pole dash paid $920.

“It was a fast race, a fun race and there were two grooves of racing side-by-side,” said Mass. “You couldn’t ask for much more.”

Mass, who started third in the eight-car dash, captured the lead with seven laps to go and then held off hard-charging A.J. Diemel, a two-time Seitz winner who finished second.

Mass edged Diemel by 0.369 seconds.

Mass isn’t quite sure what to expect in the 92-lap feature.

“We’ll try and go our hardest,” he said. “It’s a long race and my car hasn’t been good on long runs but we’ll see what we can do to make it better.”
