|Bergman Earns Runner-Up Result During Season-Opening Event in Florida
Inside Line Promotions - OCALA, Fla. (Feb. 12, 2018) - Seth Bergman nearly captured a pair of podium finishes during his opening event of the season last weekend at Bubba Raceway Park.
Bergman powered from seventh to fourth place on Friday in a heat race to start the USCS Series doubleheader. That lined him up on the outside of the fourth row for the main event.
"We passed some cars in the heat race to put ourselves in a decent position for the A Main," he said. "We had a good car and moved forward in the main event, but unfortunately got caught up in a racing deal."
Bergman had charged into second place before he collided with another car that lost a tire in the closing laps. The contact knocked Bergman out of the race and he was credited with a 15th-place finish.
The team returned to the egg-shaped track on Saturday and Bergman continued to march forward. He advanced from fourth to second place in a heat race before starting the A Main on the inside of the third row.
"We felt confident we had a good car after moving forward every time we'd been on the track all weekend," he said. "We had a solid outing in the main event and ended the weekend on the podium so that gives us momentum to start the year."
Bergman charged to a runner-up result, which was his career-best finish at the oval.
He is slated to return to action this Thursday through Saturday at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, Fla., for the Ronald Laney Memorial King of the 360s.

Bergman would also like to thank Corridor Electric, Lucas Oil Products, Inc., Young Tools, Triple X Race Co., Scott Baylor Racing Engines and FK Midwest for their continued support.
