Hearn Grabs Pole For Eastern States 200
MIDDLETOWN, N. Y. – Big-Block Modified star Brett Hearn set the bar high last year, taking victory at Orange County Fair Speedway’s Super DIRTcar Series Eastern States 200 after wins during NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week and Lebanon Valley Speedway’s Mr. DIRT Track U.S.A.
He’s ready to do one better this year, speeding into Eastern States Weekend with the Super DIRTcar Series point lead and claiming the pole starting position for Sunday’s Eastern States 200.
Hearn’s Madsen Ovehead Doors No. 20 was fastest overall Friday followed by Stewart Friesen, Tim Hindley, Billy VanInwegen, Tim McCreadie and Justin Haers. The top six in Friday’s time trials have locked in the top six starting positions in the Eastern States 200, which begins at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27.
In Friday’s heat races, Tim Fuller, Danny Johnson, Mike Kolka, Billy Decker, 2012 DIRTcar 358-Modified Series Champion Dale Planck and three time defending Super DIRTcar Series Champion Matt Sheppard picked up wins to also claim strong starting positions in Sunday’s Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modified Eastern States 200.
