Hearn ready for Eastern States repeat


Brett Hearn hoping for repeat at Orange County Fair Speedway’s Eastern States 200

Defending event champion charging into historic race with Super DIRTcar Series point lead

MIDDLETOWN, N. Y. – Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2013 – Brett Hearn didn’t just win at Eastern States Weekend last year, he took a clean sweep at the historic Orange County Fair Speedway event, charging to victory in both the Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modified Eastern States 200 and 358-Modified feature races.

This year, Hearn has the Super DIRTcar Series point advantage going into one of the biggest events of the year, and is ready to defend his position at the track he still considers his “home track.” The Super DIRTcar Series Eastern States 200 feature takes over Orange County Fair Speedway Sunday, Oct. 27, after completing time trials and heat races Friday, Oct. 25.

“Last year was unbelievable,” said Hearn, who hails from nearby Sussex, N. J., just a short drive from “The Hard Clay” of Orange County Fair Speedway. “Coming off the Syracuse win, and then to go to Eastern States and set fast time in both divisions, and then win both races – it doesn’t get any better than that. I can’t imagine that it’s going to be easy to duplicate that.”
