Right Place, Right Time for Richie Pratt Jr in $5,000 Tri-County Race Track Feature Win
Richie 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. | full results

The 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. | full results
