There's a sitting duck and a wounded duck. Marlyn Seidler was both at Jamestown Speedway on Saturday, June 22.

The 45-year racing veteran from Underwood, N.D., broke the left upper control arm on his IMCA Modified with one of the area's best -- Fargo's Casey Arneson -- bearing down on the leader over the final 14 laps of the 25-lap feature. Arneson made a daring, high-side pass for the top spot exiting turn 4 with three laps remaining, bouncing his No. 2 machine off the guardrail at the flag stand and shooting past Seidler.

Arneson led the final three circuits to notch his fourth feature win of 2019, which includes all three A-mod main events completed at Jamestown Speedway so far this season.

"I was trying to get it into the corner and I'd slide sideways and I'd push across the middle, and it was just terrible after we broke that A-frame," Seidler said. "Congratulations to Casey, anyway, on the win. We were lucky we got second with this."

Seidler led 22 of 25 laps after taking over the point on lap 1 from the third starting position. The veteran stormed out to over a three-second lead before back-to-back cautions nearing the race's halfway bunched the 24-car field back together.

Arneson weaved his way through traffic from ninth and found right-rear grip on the high-side cushion in the corners by the time he got to Seidler. But it was obvious Seidler's ride was wounded.

"I noticed Marlyn had broke the left front there with probably 10 to go or something like that, and that helped me out a lot," Arneson said.

Seidler made his No. 7 as wide as possible with the use of three wheels until a sliver of real estate opened off the top of turn 4 for the Fargo native. Dale Mathison, Eric Edwards and Ryan Schroeder rounded out the top five, respectively.

"I've raced with Marlyn a lot and I knew he'd leave me a lane, and there was just a lane there," smiled Arneson, whose pass sent sparks flying off the concrete barrier in front of the main grandstand. "Just enough to tag the wall and keep her going and that's what I did. I kinda just closed my eyes and held her in there, and hopefully, it was going to stick."

-- Jonny Carter is winning WISSOTA Street Stock features at a clip of nearly 70% in 2019. Saturday's Jamestown victory raised his batting average to 9-for-13 after a string of six-straight feature wins was snapped earlier this month in Mandan.

The Lisbon, N.D., wheelman has been the only street stock driver to stroll to victory lane in Jamestown in four chances. Jamestown's Kyle Anderson was the latest driver to finish second to Carter, who's starting to write himself into local folklore.

"He's gotta brake," quipped Anderson, who's good friends with Carter. "The guy is just fast. He's on a mission this year ... but if I can't win it I'd just as soon have him have it."

The 20-lap streets feature included seven caution flags and a red flag condition for an incident involving local drivers Dustin Erickson and Chris Ritter on the backstretch. Both drivers were uninjured. (Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated Erickson and Ritter were both injured. The typo has been corrected.)

Carter started ninth and somehow led 15 of 20 laps, overtaking Bismarck's Kelly Hoerner on restart No. 2. Anderson worked up to second from sixth and was followed at the line by Bob Banish Jr. and Hoerner, respectively.

Anderson commended track officials for preparing the track after Friday's heavy rain. The speedway had rained out the previous two weeks and had a car count of 121 in returning to action. Saturday's event concluded by 10:40 p.m. after three red flags hampered the feature races.

"(The track) was a little bit choppy where we needed to be running. But great job for the amount of rain we got this week, and thanks to all the fans," Anderson said. "The car was good, just had to run it through the rough a little bit and hang on."

-- Jarod Klein's rookie-of-the-year status in the bombers received a major shot in the arm. The 20-year-old Jamestown driver won his first feature race after just seven nights of racing.

Klein started the 15-lap feature fourth and took over the top spot after two laps. The former motocross pilot led the final 13 laps and held off Jamestown veteran Billy Carow at the checkered flag.

"I saw Billy coming in at the end there and tried to hold him off," Klein said.

Klein's bomber is no stranger to winning, being the former ride of current WISSOTA Street Stock driver Cory Rodin of Marion, N.D. Rodin won three track championships and 21 features races at Jamestown Speedway with the car dating back to 2012.

Carow started eighth and was forced to back out of the throttle in turns 1 and 2 with three laps left, which thwarted a shot at the win. Carow has notched two feature wins this season in Jamestown.

"He got momentum on me by the time I got back into it," Carow said. "I had nothing for him."

-- Brennon Weight of LaMoure, N.D., won his second Jamestown WISSOTA Midwest Modified feature, overtaking Langdon's Lance Schill on a restart with 17 of 20 laps complete.

Both Weight and Reise Stenberberg shot past Schill on the final restart. Schill would pull off the track and be scored 18th in the 26-car field after leading 11 laps. Dave Peterson rolled his No. 37 machine in turn 4 on the race's opening lap, but the Cogswell, N.D., driver walked away.

In the INEX Legends, Bismarck's Drew Papke won a three-wide battle over Andrew Jochim and Donavin Wiest to win his fifth-straight feature and second in Jamestown.

"We've had one heckuva year," Papke said. "The tracks have been good and racy, which always makes it easy."
