Wednesday, June 21, 2017 Racing ~ Afton Action 50 ~ Results

VP Racing Fuels / Halmar International / Bob Hilbert Sportswear / BD Motorsports Media / Short Track Super Series North Region Race 3

Afton, NY — After re-drawing the worst possible number on Wednesday night for the Short Track Super Series North Region Race Number three presented by Halmar International. Stewart Friesen of Sprakers, NY took four laps into the 50 lap contest to figure out where he had to race if he wanted to have an opportunity to win the race.

Friesen who started 12th was still in 12th on lap four and on the lap five restart Friesen took to the extreme top groove at the Afton Motorsports Park. With the next 32 laps going without a caution Friesen raced hard in the extreme top groove of the multi grooved Afton Motorsports Park surface. When the yellow did come out for debris on lap 35 Friesen was in second right behind leader Danny Creeden.

After another restart on lap 37 Friesen raced his away around Creeden in turns three and four to take the lead. Friesen then led the final 13 laps unchallenged to claim the $5,000 first place prize. Friesens's take would increase by an additional $100 as that money came from the New York State Stock Car Association for being the first NYSSCA Member to cross the finish line.

Ryan Godown who won both Short Track Series races last year at the track came from 17th to finsh second with polesitter Jeremy Smith ending up in third with Creeden fading to fourth and Ryan Jordan nipping Andy Bachetti at the line for fifth.

The American Racer Cup Sportsman 25 was all Cody Clark of Dogeleville, NY as he led all 25 laps to claim the $1,000 top prize to win over Harold Humphrey, Matt Brewer, Tim French II, and Kyle Rohner.

Dylan Robinson of Harpursville, NY led all 20 laps to claim the $200 top prize in winning the FWD Four Cylinder Stock event. Mike Robinson, Nick Kennedy, Frank Kennedy, and Michael Brown rounded out the top five.

Afton, NY — After his normal Friday night track was rained out Danny Creeden had in his mind not to race on Friday night. But crewman Dennis Dietrich kept after the Wurtsboro, NY driver that four hours before race time the decision was made to go to Afton Motorsports Park and race.

That was the correct decision as Creeden came from 15th place starting spot to grab the lead from Mike Trautschold with an inside turn four pass coming down for the two laps to go signal. Creeden in for the very popular win over Trautschold, Paul Jensen, Kurt Decker, and Mitch Gibbs.
