Huge $30,000 Purse Structure, Bonus Awards Set For Short Track Super Series Halmar International North Region Opener

MIDDLETOWN, NY – The ‘Hard Clay Open’ isn’t just an early season tradition on the hallowed grounds of the Orange County Fair Speedway. It is also among the richest springtime events for big-block/small-block Modified competitors.

On Saturday, April 2 (rain date: April 9) the ‘Hard Clay Open’ presented by United Pump & Tank is headlined by the big-block/small-block Modifieds of the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By VP in the third edition of the BD Motorsports Media LLC co-promotion.

Crate 602 Sportsman complete the two-division open-wheel doubleheader in a 25-lap feature paying $1,000 to win and $100 to start under weekly Orange County rules.

Bonus and special awards have been adding up for STSS Modified competitors at the ‘Hard Clay Open’ event.

The ‘Hard Clay Open’ is unique in its welcoming rules format. Small-block engines (maximum 363 cubic inches) weigh 2,400 lbs. (OCFS/Lebanon Valley/DIRTcar legal 2,350 lbs.) and are permitted to utilize sail panels. Big-block engines (more than 363 cubic inches) weigh 2,500 lbs. and must run traditional window bodywork. This format was popular a year ago as an equalizer for competitors and a visible distinguishing factor among engine combinations for race fans.

A liberal tire rule is also competitor-friendly. American Racer is the official tire of the STSS. Accepted compounds for the ‘Hard Clay Open’ are as follows: 44 or harder left-rear; 48 or harder right-rear; 44 or harder right-front; and any left-front.

To accommodate local competitors wishing to take part in the ‘Hard Clay Open’ race teams will be permitted to qualify on Hoosier tires (D400 or harder, all corners). The Hoosier options will be legal for heat races and consolations; feature-event starters, however, must be outfitted with at least three American Racers (left-front optional).

Stewart Friesen Set To Compete In Delaware At March 12 Georgetown Speedway Melvin L. Joseph Memorial

Friesen To Chase Short Track Super Series North & South Region Championships

GEORGETOWN, DE – Stewart Friesen makes his living behind the wheel of a dirt Modified, often racing more than 100 times in a single season.

He has not, however, turned a lap in the state of Delaware since 2009 during a stint as Maryland car owner Will Brown’s hired driver. Friesen, a native of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., who now resides in Sprakers, N.Y., will change that on Saturday, March 12 when he heads to the First State for the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial at Georgetown Speedway.

Friesen, whose most recent Delaware start resulted in a second-place finish at Delaware International Speedway in November 2009, circled the Georgetown date on his calendar when the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By VP event was announced last fall.

“I was there once I think, with Will (Brown),” Friesen said. “It’s been a while. I know that. But I’m looking forward to it.”

Friesen, who led the Northeast with 34 victories in Modified and Sprint Car competition last year, has been brushing up on his Georgetown knowledge by watching YouTube videos of the half-mile track.

“The track looks fast, and definitely racy,” Friesen said, noting he’ll be heading south with both a big- and small-block combination in his Halmar International race team’s hauler.

“I hope it goes better for me this time,” Friesen said with a laugh. “If I remember right, I hit an infield tire off turn two and didn’t finish the last time I raced there.”

Friesen looks toward his first season driving for Chris Larsen’s potent Halmar-backed race team. He kicked off his 2016 season in Florida at Volusia Speedway Park with four nights of racing. He never finished outside the top-six and ended the mini-series with a runner-up finish in the 50-lap finale.

“We got some notes to build on in Florida I think we can apply for the rest of the year,” he said.

Last season, Friesen won the STSS North Region championship, picking up four series wins (New York’s Orange County, I-88, Woodhull and Thunder Mountain) en route to the title.

In ’16, Friesen plans to not only defend his crown in the Halmar International North Region; he will also chase points in the Velocita South Region, which kicks off at Georgetown.

“I put my schedule together and I’m planning to run both regions,” Friesen said. “The point fund and payout for the series is good and the dates work out for us to be able to chase the North and South championships.”

Georgetown roars to life on Saturday, March 5 with an open practice. Gates open at 1 p.m. and cars hit the track at 3 p.m. Grandstand admission is FREE and pit admission is $20.

The Melvin L. Joseph Memorial Race weekend is set for FridaySaturday March 11-12.

On Friday (March 11) open practice is planned. Gates open at 4 p.m. with practice at 6:30 p.m. Grandstand admission is FREE. Pit admission is $20.

The grand reopening of the fabled Georgetown Speedway is Saturday, March 12 with the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial. The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By VP big-block/small-block Modifieds race 49 laps for $4,900 to win, $1,000 for 10th and $490 to take the green flag. This event is Round No. 1 of the seven-race STSS Velocita South Region with a total point fund of more than $25,000.

Also on the March 12 card: Crate 602 Sportsman, Southern Delaware Vintage Stock Cars, Little Lincolns, Delmarva Chargers and Delaware Super Trucks.

On Saturday (March 12), pit gates open at 11 a.m. and grandstand gates are unlocked at noon. The drivers’ meeting takes place at 2:30 p.m., with hot laps at 3 p.m. and racing at 4 p.m.

Admission is $20 for Adults. Seniors (ages 65 and up) and Students (ages 13-17) pay $16. Kids 9-12 are $10 and those under eight are admitted FREE. Pit admission is $35 (ages 13 and up), $10 for Kids 6-12 and $2 for those five and under.

A Sunday, March 13 rain date for the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial will be utilized if needed.
