Part-time Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints competitor Stewart Friesen parleyed a fast car and a bit of luck into his second Albany-Saratoga Speedway Empire Super Sprints win in three years Friday night, sharing victory lane with first-time DIRTcar Modified winner Matt Depew on a strange night with intermittent sprinkles but never real rain.
Archrivals Brett Hearn and Kenny Tremont Jr. split the twin DIRTcar modified features at the Albany-Saratoga Speedway Friday night, with leading winner Hearn prevailing easily in the opener, which was rained out in June, and point leader Tremont taking the regular 35 lapper
Albany-Saratoga Speedway’s enthusiastic crowd saw two things they seldom see Friday night.
It was a wet, wild and crazy night at Lebanon Valley Speedway Saturday night, with the Empire Super Sprints feature the only one to go into the record books. And Steve Poirier only had to lead to halfway to win as rain hit yet again during a red flag for a flip by Chuck Hebing.
Brett Hearn made it look easy Friday night as he won yet another DIRTcar modified feature at Albany-Saratoga Speedway, leading Kenny Tremont Jr. to the checkers by a full turn after a mad dash from 14th to the lead in just 10 laps.
After a midday rain added moisture to the Fonda Speedway surface, humid weather kept the half-mile much tackier than normal Thursday night, a situation that played right into Shane Clanton’s hand
Saturday night’s DIRTcar modified feature at Fonda Speedway was anything but routine, though the end result was pretty much the same as other weeks.
Brett Hearn lived up to his “Jersey Jet” nickname Saturday night, flying through the DIRTcar Modified field from 13th to claim the third-annual J.C. Flach Memorial at Lebanon Valley Speedway.
Brett Hearn had to fight hard for his 119th Albany-Saratoga Speedway win Friday night, but he finally managed to drive around Marc Johnson with two to go to get back to Victory Lane after consecutive wins by Kenny Tremont Jr.
Those who follow NASCAR have certainly heard that the NASCAR Hall of Fame Class of 2016 will include track owner O. Bruton Smith and drivers Curtis Turner, Terry Labonte, Jerry Cook and Bobby Isaac, great choices all.
