Stewart Friesen and the Halmar Friesen Racing team head to Kansas City, Kansas, this weekend to compete in the fourth race of the 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season.
This will be Friesen’s first time racing at Kansas Speedway, but his fourth time competing on a 1.5 mile track where the Sunoco Rookie of the Year Contender has an average finish of 22nd.
“After being off from the truck series for over a month, I’m pretty pumped to get rolling again.
We’ve filled the gap racing our Modifieds these past few weeks, but I’m eager to get back into the swing of the NCWTS schedule. Everyone at the HFR shop has been working hard and we’ve used the break to prepare for this next stretch where we will race the next six out of seven weeks.”
