BREWERTON, NY – August 29, 2011(By Dave Medler) – It all comes down to one race this Friday, September 2nd to crown the 2011 Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modified Track Champion at the Brewerton Speedway.
At the start of the 2011 season Stewart Friesen wasn’t sure if he would be a weekly competitor at the “D-Shaped Dirt Demon”. Right out the box Friesen picked up a win, and has been a strong presence on a weekly basis behind the wheel of his M.R Burdick, No.85, TEO. Going into Friday he has a slim 12 point over Matt Sheppard lead going into the final point’s race.
Last Friday night, Matt Sheppard put his XTREME Lubricants, No.9s, Bicknell in victory lane for the fourth time this season. Sheppard has related his team has really hit on something during the last half of the season and has one of the fastest cars when he unloads his hauler on Friday nights.
Sitting just 17 points out of the points lead is Jimmy Phelps behind the wheel of his J&B Installations, No.99j, Troyer. The defending track champion has one win in the 2011 season but keeps racking up top finishes to be in the fight on the final point’s night.
With 11 different feature winners at the Brewerton Speedway, it’s no guarantee that Friesen, Sheppard or Phelps will end up in victory lane. It all could come down to a top-finish and staying out of trouble to determine the Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modified Champion.
Also on the race card Friday night will be the Nationwide Insurance IMCA Modifieds, Beaver River Distributions ESDCA Mod Lites and Metalico Four Cylinder Super Stocks.
Before or after the races stop into The Waterfront and Calypso Cay Restaurants for great food, drinks and atmosphere as they are located within sight distance of the Brewerton Speedway located on the Oswego County side of the Brewerton Bridge on Route 11. Remember to support those who support racing.
With hockey season just around the corner, the Syracuse Crunch will have a presence at the speedway with their promotional team and mascot. The speedway is pleased to continue their long relationship with the Crunch as many race fans and race teams spend their winter months at Crunch games. Go towww.syracusecrunch.com to learn more about the upcoming season and ticket information.
Adult grandstand admission will be $12 with everyone 18 years old and younger admitted free to the grandstand. Gates will open at 5:30 with racing at 7:30.
The countdown is on for the 19th Annual Hurricane 100 presented by SUNY Canton on Thursday night October 6th. With the race paying at least $7,500 to the winner and for the first time including Big Block Modifieds, look for the Brewerton regulars to defend their turf against what promises to be a stout field of invaders.
