Yetman Scores His Fourth Super DIRT Week Win

by Kayla May


OSWEGO, NY — Oct. 9, 2016 — Rob Yetman claimed his fourth NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week title during the Pro Stock 30 Feature, but it wasn’t an easy path to Victory Lane for anyone on the podium.

 

Yetman started in the ninth position, and it wasn’t until halfway through the feature (and many cautions) that he appeared in the top three, battling against PJ Peters, Jason Casey, Jim Normolye and Pete Stefanski to get there. He wasn’t the only driver charging the front line from behind.

The 30-car feature event was comprised of more than 60 percent native New Yorkers. Cayuga, N.Y. driver David Marcuccilli led the field into the green flag for 50 laps after recording the fastest lap in time trials on Friday with a 23.451.

by Mandee Pauch

 

OSWEGO, N.Y. – Oct. 9 2016 – Stewart Friesen is no stranger at doing the NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week roof dance, which he did as he picked up his fifth NAPA Super DIRT Week victory Sunday night at Oswego Speedway. Friesen closed the books at Syracuse with a win last year and made history this year with the first ever dirt win at Oswego Speedway in the Halmar International No. 44 Big Block Modified.

 

“I’ll tell you what, my guys worked so hard. The Halmar racing team did a great job. I have great teammates,” Friesen said in victory lane. “I want to thank everyone for supporting this event. The track conditions were challenging, but that was an exciting race. Just standing up here on this thing with all of the great guys that won the Classic and the modified races is pretty damn cool. It’s a dream come true. It’s so surreal. I have to thank all of my people who got me to this point."

First 30 Spots Locked in for Sunday's Bud Light 300

Varin, Friesen and Haers dominate Friday Night Lights Triple 30s

by Mandee Pauch

 

OSWEGO, NY — Oct. 7, 2016 — Camping World Friday Night Lights came to a head almost an hour into Saturday with the culmination of the Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modified Triple 30s that locked in another 24 spots for Sunday's Bud Light 300, the flagship of NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week. 

 

On Thursday, the first six spots were sealed during the Big Block Modified Time Trials: Matt Sheppard, Tim McCreadie, Justin Haers, Danny Varin, Carey Terrence,  and Brett Hearn. And unlike the Sportsman division — in which only one of the guaranteed-spot drivers chose to run the Triple 15s — all of the drivers ran in the Triple 30s. Varin and Haers each picked up wins, along with $4,000 checks. 


But more importantly, four-time Big Block Modified Super DIRT Week Champion Stewart Friesen — who missed the cut in Time Trials, in which he came in eighth — secured his spot immediately following the top six.
