GRANBY, QC – September 9, 2015 – Super DIRTcar Series (SDS) point leader Matt Sheppard will attempt to increase his Autodrome Granby career-win win total to five at the Quebec half-mile Friday, September 11, as well as end Stewart Friesen’s current three-race winning streak.

Sheppard struggled uncharacteristically at Rolling Wheels Raceway September 3, but he rallied late in the event to place eighth for his 16th top-10 in 17 starts.

Friesen led the final 88 laps at Rolling Wheels for his third consecutive win which has propelled him into seventh-place in the championship point standings.

Sheppard’s closest rival, Brett Hearn, trails him by 95 points. The “Jersey Jet” has six career Super DIRTcar wins at Granby.

Danny Johnson, last year’s SDS winner at Granby, will try to regain momentum in the Finger Lakes Livestock Exchange No. 27j. Johnson has only one top-10 finish in his last six starts and has slipped to eighth in the standings.

Following the Autodrome Granby 100, the next event on the Super DIRTcar Series schedule is at Brewerton Speedway September 19.

Friday’s race card includes a 50-lap DIRTcar NE Pro Stock Series event – the make-up of a June 11 rainout.

Red-hot Friesen strikes again

Red-hot Friesen strikes again at Rolling Wheels

Holds off Larry Wight for 3rd straight Super DIRTcar win

ELBRIDGE, N.Y. – September 3, 2015 – Stewart Friesen led the final 88 laps of the Bud Light 100 at Rolling Wheels Raceway to score his third straight Super DIRTcar Series win and a $7,500 payoff in the Petruska Racing Atlas Paving No. 66.

Friesen drew the pole, yielded to Anthony Perrego for 12 laps and then took over. Pat Ward and Danny Johnson stayed with the leader during the first half of the race, but eventual runner-up Larry Wight pressured him the most for the final 20 laps. Wight, could hang with Friesen and gain ground down the backstretch into turn three, but he couldn’t make the Gypsum Express No. 99L stick into and off the first turn well enough to ever get to Friesen’s door. Friesen’s margin of victory was two car-lengths.
