Friesen ends 2013 season "with a bang", winning Super DIRTcar Series finale
Hearn crowned Super DIRTcar Series champion after four wins and consistently strong season
CONCORD, N.C. - Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013 - Ontario's Stewart Friesen, of Niagara-on-the-Lake, wrapped up his racing season in style, charging to victory in Saturday's Super DIRTcar Series 40-lap feature at The Dirt Track at Charlotte.
"It's always good to go out with a bang," said Friesen, who made a smooth late-race move in lap 37 to take the lead from series point leader Brett Hearn. "We passed the best in the business."
Hearn, of Sussex, N.J., had already collected four Super DIRTcar Series wins and was aiming for number five, drawing the third starting position after winning Thursday's heat race. Pole-sitter Ryan Godown had the initial lead, but Hearn charged ahead at the green flag and was a nose ahead of the No. 747 at the lap 1 start-finish line before the race's first yellow flag waved.

World of Outlaws World Finals win widens point gap between leader Hearn and runner-up Sheppard
CONCORD, N.C. - Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013 - Brett Hearn is rounding out another strong Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series season with unparalleled success at the World of Outlaws World Finals. After winning two heat races Thursday, Hearn made the redraw for Friday's feature, drew the pole, and led the 40-lap race flag to flag.
"I knew we had a good car yesterday in qualifying," Hearn reflected after Friday's victory, which didn't come easy with Matt Sheppard and Stewart Friesen challenging Hearn's supremacy.
Three-time defending Super DIRTcar Series Champion Matt Sheppard was just over 100 points shy of the tour leader, Hearn, before Friday's race, and went into the feature hoping to pick up his first Charlotte win and shake up the point standings. Sheppard started the race in seventh, but by the second lap was challenging Ryan Godown for third thanks to a strong restart.Full Story...
