Right Place, Right Time for Richie Pratt Jr in $5,000
Tri-County Race Track Feature Win
Pratt scored his first Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super
Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco win in dramatic fashion, taking
the lead at halfway after the top four drivers piled-up before
then holding off a high-flying Alex Yankowski for the Tri-County
Racetrack trophy in the Hurlock Auto and Speed ‘Return
to Racing’ 50-lap feature.
“Last night we were in the wrong place at the wrong time
on the second lap, but tonight we were in the right place,”
Pratt said. “The top four all had problems and we were
there to capitalize on it.”
Stewart Friesen picked up where he left off Thursday night,
leading the way at the start of Friday’s 50-lap feature
and leaving Richie Pratt and Tyler Dippel to battle for second.
That battle didn’t last as long as hoped, as Dippel went
around on lap five. A big pileup on the restart sent Larry Wight’s
brand new Teo Pro Car flipping in its first event, but Wight
continued on track and Friesen continued to lead.
Friesen Finds the Top Side of Tri-County Race Track
to Score $3,000 Return to Racing Win!
Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled
By Sunoco made a wild return to racing at Tri-County Racetrack,
with Stewart Friesen completing a “spin and win”
to grab the checkered in the Hurlock Auto and Speed 40-lap feature
event while picking up the $3,000 payday.
“It was an awesome race car,” mentioned Friesen.
“Thanks to Halmar, thanks to all my guys. There is a lot
of great things going on. Halmar is delivering food and trying
to raise money to help out people in need. People Upstate (New
York) and in the Northeast hopefully get some satisfaction watching
these cars down here in the south. This is awesome.”
The event was streamed live via Dirt Track Digest TV, kicking
off a three-race swing through the Carolinas by the STSS.
