Stewart Friesen Took Home the $10,000 prize and Max McLaughlin is a Guaranteed Starter at the 47th NAPA Super DIRT Week
MALTA, NY – June 26, 2018 – Stewart Friesen held his son high above the Halmar Racing no. 44 in Victory Lane after taking the checkered flag at Albany-Saratoga Speedway. When the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series rising star moved up into second place, he thought that would be as far as he would get with Matt Sheppard walking away from the field. Sheppard, who had lead 95 laps from the pole, got tangled up with the lapped competitor Willy Decker, and spun out between turns one and two. The field streamed by the stalled no. 9s, which gave Friesen the top spot with only 5 laps remaining. From there on it was a shootout with the HBR team cars of Max McLaughlin and Jimmy Phelps. The no. 6H and no. 98H thrilled the crowd by dicing high and low for position but as they battled amongst themselves, the no. 44 of Friesen pulled away.
