OSWEGO, NY – Rob Yetman picked up right where he left off at the Oswego Speedway. The multi-time Super DIRT Week champion put himself at the front of the Pro Stock field.
Yetman is chasing his fifth consecutive DIRTcar Pro Stock victory at Super DIRT Week. Saturday afternoon he earned the pole for the 75-lap main event. Yetman turned in a lap of 25.151 to earn the pole position for the second straight year and his fourth overall.
“Lately we’ve been throwing some stuff at car that we know works and it’s not working,” commented Yetman. “After warm ups we tried something that we haven’t before and it worked good”
Although he is the defending winner, Yetman knows that this year all bets are off. The track is much different in 2017 than it was in 2016. It’s smooth and slippery from the inside wall the outside wall and the main-event is going to be 75-laps instead of the traditional 50-laps.
“We got a whole different scenario this year,” stated Yetman. “It’s 75 laps with different track conditions. It will be a gamble on Sunday. I think starting up front is the place to be.”
Yetman beat out a strong effort from Rich Crane who turned a 25.226. Joceyln Roy ended timing third quick with Nick Stone and Jason Corbin completing the top five.
The rest of the top 10 included Kim Duell, Joshua Coonradt, Dave Bissonnett, Pete Stefanski and Jason Meltz.
