Wednesday Winner Danny Johnson Still Leads in Event Points for DIRTcar Nationals presented by Summit Racing Equipment

BARBERVILLE, FLA. – February 22, 2013 – Stewart Friesen found his groove yesterday, Thursday, February, 21, in the second of four Super DIRTcar Series feature races during UNOH DIRTcar Nationals presented by Summit Racing Equipment, and that groove took him all the way to victory lane.

“I was able to roll in the middle, I was good on the bottom, good on the top,” Friesen, of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, said of driving on the track at Volusia Speedway Park. “We had a really balanced car, which is key.”

Friesen, a two-time VP Small Engine Fuels 200 Champion, was off to a slow start earlier in the week, breaking the top 20 in only one of three timed practice sessions Tuesday. His performance improved Wednesday, and has continued to improve Thursday. He hot lapped strongly at the sixth fastest time overall and placed second in his heat, carrying the momentum through the checkered flag.

“We worked really hard on the car; we had a couple problems in the practice session Tuesday and we worked them out yesterday in the feature,” Friesen said. “We made some good adjustments to the car.”
