By JOHN DOUGLAS JR. Brett Hearn has always had a knack for the tough surface at the moody mile, and his luck continued this week with a front row starting spot for the NAPA Super DIRT Week Syracuse 200. ” I know exactly where I lost it.” Hearn said, ‘I got a little loose into turn one and it just held me back from getting to the gas as quickly as I wanted to. Man, to lose a qualifying run like that by .002, even though it’s the front row, it still hurts a little bit.  It’s good for the…More

Team Effort Brings Friesen and Daley Third SDW Championship – DTD Exclusive

By MIKE MALLETT Hollywood couldn’t make a movie as compelling and thrilling at Sunday’s finale to Super DIRT Week XLIII because if they did no one would believe it was true. By all accounts Stewart Friesen was fortunate just to finish the race on Sunday, let alone win it. The Sprakers, N.Y., driver broke a shock mount, was leaking fuel and eventually needed a push to get the car to Victory Lane. Although he felt down and out during the middle stages of the race, Friesen and his Jeff Daley-owned team never gave up. Matt Hearn and the crew joined…More
