Friesen VL

Stewart Friesen’s flag to flag victory at the Heroes Remembered 100 guarantees him a starting position at NAPA Super DIRT Week.

WEEDSPORT, NY – May 28, 2018 – Can a race that is lead flag to flag be exciting? You bet it can. Folks will be talking about this one for a long time. Full-time NASCAR Craftsman Series Truck driver Stewart Friesen needed every ounce of talent, determination, and equipment he had to hold off the 18-year-old HBR driver Max McLaughlin. The pair diced and dueled through lapped traffic for the better part of the 100 lap Feature. McLaughlin closed in for the kill multiple times, but Friesen stayed slippery and managed to gap 6h again and again. All the effort was worth it as Stewart Friesen becomes the first guaranteed starter for this year’s NAPA Super DIRT Week.

When the Super DIRTcar Series season finally gets underway on Memorial Day with the Heroes Remembered 100 at Weedsport Speedway in New York, Erick Rudolph will be in the field. And for every series race after that in 2018.

The 26-year-old native of Ransomville, NY, is making his second attempt to run full-time with the Super DIRTcar Series, which is starting a full month later than it was scheduled to after rain washed out races at Fulton and Bridgeport speedways. He last competed as a tour regular in 2014 at just 22 years old. The series’ offseason decision to eliminate DIRTcar home track points as part of the championship was a big reason Rudolph decided to tackle the entire tour this year, he said.

Battle at the Bridge Washed Out

The Super DIRTcar Series tour stop at Bridgeport Speedway has been canceled due to rain

CONCORD, NC – May 15, 2018 – Unfortunately due to a full week of torrential rains and severe thunderstorms, the Super DIRTcar Series tour stop at Bridgeport Speedway for the Battle at the Bridge has been cancelled.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for much of the region through tonight and tomorrow. The grounds have already taken on a lot of water, so the facility will not be safe for racing action on the 5/8th mile track. Between the wet forecast and the rains in the week prior, the track will not have a chance to dry out. Bridgeport Speedway and Super DIRTcar Series officials wanted to get the race in but the call had to be made in the name of safety.

The Premier Big-Block Modified Series of the Northeast Travels to Bridgeport Speedway for the Battle at the Bridge

CONCORD, NC – May 4, 2018 – Last year, Bridgeport Speedway regulars successfully defended their home turf against the Super DIRTcar Series travelers. On Wednesday, May 16, the Super DIRTcar Series stars will be looking to take the fight back to the New Jersey faithful on Bridgeport’s big track – the extremely fast and racy 5/8 mile clay oval. It was Ryan Watt from Boyertown PA who captured the win after 60 hard-fought laps last year. Although technically the same size as Oswego Speedway, the home of NAPA Super DIRT Week, Bridgeport Speedway’s 5/8-mile track is unique in its own right. Tacky and fast, the New Jersey clay allows drivers to hit seriously high speeds.

Tim McCreadie is the Super DIRTcar Series track record holder with a 20.182 second lap, a 111 MPH average speed. No single driver has been able dominate the 5/8-mile Bridgeport Speedway in Super DIRTcar Series races. Only two drivers have multiple Series wins going back to 1976: Billy Pauch and Frank Cozze, with two Series wins each to their credit. The last Series regular to win was Danny Johnson in 2005.
