08/07/2018 Summer Nationals Ransomville Speedway

RANSOMVILLE, NY – August 7, 2018 – After starting on the outside pole, Stewart Friesen, five-time NAPA Super DIRT Week Champion, powered by Chad Brachmann racing into turn one on the opening lap. Friesen faced challenges from Matt Sheppard and Mat Williamson throughout the 100 circuits around the half-mile Niagara County facility, but was able to hold them off. A familiar “old school” Ransomville cushion formed at the top of the track, and Friesen made expert use of it. He leaned on it like an old friend, and it carried him to Summer Nationals victory for the sixth time. Mat Williamson, not content with second, nearly grabbed the lead out from under Friesen in the closing laps. Third place finisher Brett Hearn had serious mechanical issues early in the race, but his team was able to fix the failed part, and the no. 20 found its way to the podium.
