In 2009 Seidler also chalked up a North Dakota IMCA state championship, placed fourth in the modified ButlerBuilt north central regional point standings and twelfth in the national point standings.

At last years Winter Challenge Series, Seidler battled it out with a forty-car field and finished nineteenth in the feature. Canyon fans saw a home state driver and a traveler from halfway across the country win the IMCA Modified opening weekend double header at Canyon Speedway Park's 2009 Modified Winter Challenge Series. Local racer Ricky Thornton Jr. topped Saturday's round one show pocketing a grand for his work in the first IMCA event held at Canyon since the 2004 season. The following day, Seidler put on a show with an impressive second place feature finish but it was the DandyLand team traveling from Iowa and driver Rich Lewerke that picked up a $1,000 winning payout on the Sunday’s round two show.

Seidler again finished up front with a fifth place pay out as it was team DandyLand and Lewerke that stayed on the throttle with a round three victory.

The North Dakota resident got everything worked out and Seidler led the way in round five. Round five also saw 2009 rookie phenom 4tw-Tim Ward from Mesa, Arizona start off his career in front of a stellar field with a remarkable second place finish.

Things really heated up in round six with a 52 car field in that 28 teams traveled from 9 states including CA, NE, ND, IO, WI, CO, NM, TX & MN.
