SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Sept. 12, 2013 – A year ago in the Syracuse 200 at NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week, Brett Hearn was rumbling around the Moody Mile trying to keep his DIRTcar Big-Block Modified in front of the field as his crew was doing a rain dance in the pits.

SYRACUSE, NY – Oct. 7, 2012 – By Kevin Kovac/DIRTcar Racing P.R. – Brett Hearn’s long run of big-block Modified misery during NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week is over.

But it…More

It doesn’t seem real yet.” Warner may have seen victory lane at the New…More
