After Nordjysk Elite Speedway's withdrawal from the Danish Speedway League, all of Nordjysk's matches have been reset. This means that SES -Sønderjylland Elite Speedway drops to 2nd place in the overall standings, while the reigning Danish champions from Holsted Tigers are new.
Both top teams compete on Wednesday evening, when SES meets GSK Grindsted and Holsted is away against Region Varde.

The battle for first place in the SpeedwayLigaen's regular series is now further intensified after Nordjyske's fall. It is about home ground and hosting for this year's Team DM final on 21 September.
The winner of the regular season gets the host and takes second place directly into the final.
The number 3-4-5-6 of the basic series runs the semi-finals on September 14 for the last two final places.
However, the close race in this year's series is not something that gives SES company manager Helge Frimodt Pedersen sleepless nights:
- No, not really, because we have known all along that the SES away match against Holsted Tigers, on 31 August at the Moldow Arena, will be the focal point for the final result.
- But, having said that, there are no free tickets in this game. We still have to keep the cable tight in our upcoming matches, to keep pace with the reigning champions, states Helge Frimodt Pedersen.
After North Jutland's regrettable announcement, the Holsted staff quickly went out and hijacked the North Jutland profile Thomas Jørgensen.
