Britten Dashes From 20th to Become First Australian Super DIRTcar Series Feature Winner

HARTFORD, OH – July 20, 2017 – Peter Britten created a little piece of Super DIRTcar Series history on Thursday night. Britten came from the 20th starting position and then used a slidejob in turns three and four to take the lead from Matt Sheppard following a lap 54 restart. The Brisbane, Queensland, Australia native led the final 46 laps and held off Stewart Friesen on a restart with 12 laps to go to earn the first Super DIRTcar Series win of his career in the Buckeye Ground Pounder 100 at Sharon Speedway. Britten also becomes the first Australian driver to win a Super DIRTcar Series Feature event. 

“I can’t believe it. It’s amazing,” Britten said in Victory Lane. “We had a good car, rolling around and kept picking off cars one by one. I ran the middle and I’m like “man, my car’s pretty friggen good right now”. I just kept picking them off and I got to (Matt Sheppard) and I’m like “this will be the real test”. I was able to clear him and man, I don’t know if they were close to me. It’s unreal, a Super DIRTcar Series win at Sharon.”
