CORNWALL, Ont. – June 27, 2016 – Stewart Friesen battled to a wild first win of the season Sunday night as the Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds took on Cornwall (Ont.) Motor Speedway.
Friesen, who took the lead on the initial start from pole-sitter Max McLaughlin, was able to capture the Mel Valade Backhoe Service 100 lapper, but not without a hard fight by fourth place starter, Matt Sheppard.
“What a racecar. Those cautions drive me crazy. When you pass Matt Sheppard back, that’s really something. He’s on top of his game right now,” said Friesen in victory lane.
