SOMERTON, Ariz. — Taking on the ASCS Southwest Region at Cocopah Speedway on Saturday night, Washington’s Seth Bergman led all 25 laps at the southwest Arizona oval.
A shakedown session for Seth before taking on the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network on March 19-20 at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway, the Cocopah win is his third overall against the Arizona based tour.
Pursued by defending series champion Colton Hardy, the pair slipped through slower traffic at breakneck speed, with New Mexico’s Lorne Wofford working to keep pace.
Closing in on Seth numerous times, Hardy could not get the advantage as the Stagg Insurance/Evergreen Coffee, Co. No. 23 found the checkered flags with 1.311 seconds to spare.
Hardy settled for second with Lorne Wofford in third. Eric Wilkins made up two spots to fourth, with Tucson’s Nick Parker moving up five positions to complete the top five.
