by Clayton Johns

OSWEGO, NY — Oct. 6, 2016 — Tim Fuller was the only driver to crack the 22-second bracket as his lap time of 22.829 seconds earned him the pole for the DIRTcar 358 Modified Series Riccelli-Northern Salute the Troops 150 at the 45th Annual NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week.

Fuller was the first car to hit the track for time trials after fastest time in the noon practice session. He took full advantage of his qualifying position to grab the pole for Saturday’s 358 Modified main event.

“I was so close to the wall. You have to nip the wall down here in turn one and I can’t believe I didn’t hit it,” Fuller said following time trials. “That’s all we had to do – we just had to hit it right.”

"With support from Governor Cuomo, the State of New York, and incredible fans and sponsors, we are excited to announce that the State of New York has committed the resources that will allow Super DIRT Week to return to Oswego Speedway in 2017,” said DIRTcar Racing CEO Brian Carter. "Over the last several months we've developed a great relationship with John and Eric Torrese and their team as we took on an extensive overhaul project to ready the historic Oswego Speedway for Racing’s Biggest Party. The infrastructure is now here, the support from the fans and sponsors has been tremendous, and we look forward to improving on 2016 and making 2017 at Oswego Speedway the best Super DIRT Week yet.”
