BROCKVILLE, ONTARIO – Monday, Oct. 21, 2013 – Billy Decker, of Unadilla, N. Y. sped ahead at Brockville Ontario Speedway Sunday, Oct. 20, to claim his second Super DIRTcar Series win of the season.
“We drew good, lucky there. We had a pretty good car early,” said Decker, who drew second for Sunday’s 100-lap feature after finishing second in his heat race. “I was able to fend everyone off – stayed in line and tried to carry enough speed to hold everybody back, yet keep a right rear tire on the car.”
Decker and his fellow competitors faced a challenging track Sunday, and after two straight days of racing in the 100 Islands RV Centre Fall Nationals, tire maintenance became a central part of the racing strategy at Brockville Ontario Speedway.
Starting in the front row next to LJL Racing teammate Larry Wight, Decker was able to power off the high side to an initial lead. Brett Hearn, who started on the outside of the second row, also found speed off the outside to pass Gary Tomkins and Wight for second.Read more: Decker beats Brockville
