Seekonk, MA — It was all Seth Carlson in the 25-lap Northeastern Midget Association feature at Seekonk Speedway’s Open Wheel Wednesday. Starting on the outside pole, the rookie led every lap en route to his first-ever NEMA checkered in the Gene Feigel 71.
Carlson, who spent the 2011 season with the NEMA Lites, survived four restarts in the first five laps and then had a trouble-free ride despite the final eight laps in heavy traffic. The 19-year old posted a feature-best 11.152 seconds lap.
The move of the race belonged to Adam Cantor who came from eight to third on the last restart. Two laps later he took second from Joey Payne with an inside move out of four. Cantor, however, had nothing for Carlson. “Nobody did,” he said.
