|Bergman Set for Debut at Southern Raceway This Weekend With USCS Series
Inside Line Promotions - GIBSONTON, Fla. (Feb. 20, 2018) - Seth Bergman will make his debut at Southern Raceway this weekend with the USCS Series.
Bergman is slated to tackle the 3/8-mile oval in Milton, Fla., on Friday and Saturday, and he's looking to top his best USCS Series finish of second place, which he recorded in Florida earlier this month.
"We pride ourselves on being able to adapt to new tracks quickly and be contenders out of the box," he said. "It will be a challenge, but one we're looking forward to facing."
Bergman competed last weekend at East Bay Raceway Park during the Ronald Laney Memorial King of the 360s. Unfortunately, a broken header hampered the team on Thursday during the opening round of the three-day event.
Bergman placed sixth in both a heat race and a B Main as his night ended early. He returned to the bullring on Friday, advancing from eighth to seventh place in a heat race before winning a B Main after starting third.
"We made some changes every time we went out and really hit on something in that B Main," he said. "That was probably the best the car we had all weekend."
Bergman claimed the consolation race by nearly half a lap and he carried that momentum into the 25-lap A Main. Bergman maneuvered toward the top 10, but a broken power steering line with four laps remaining resulted in a DNF.
The event finale on Saturday didn't start any better as a fellow competitor spun out in front of the field on the opening lap of a heat race. Bergman dove low to avoid the melee, but the driver made contact with Bergman, whose car flipped. He was unable to resume the race and was forced to scratch from the B Main.
"It's one of those weekends where you put it behind you and look forward," he said. "Our focus is on being a contender on Friday at Southern Raceway and then doing the same thing there on Saturday."
