KIRKWOOD, N.Y. – July 15, 2015 – Stewart Friesen slipped under Pat Ward exiting the fourth turn on the final lap to win the Super DIRTcar Series “Greatest Drivers 65” at Five Mile Point Speedway Wednesday, July 15.

The racing at the front was superlative, while deeper in the field there was enough contact on the quarter-mile bullring to require 10 yellows.

Ward took the lead from the outside pole and led all but two of the first 64 laps. Friesen, working the bottom, got a wheel in front at the line twice before winning by less than half a car-length.

Friesen started 9th and took over 2nd place from Larry Wight on lap 35.

Danny Johnson, Tim Fuller and Billy Pauch Jr. were 3-4-5.

Unofficially, by finishing 11th and 12th respectively, Matt Sheppard and Billy Decker are tied for 1st in the point standings.
