Big-Block, Big Bucks: Erick Rudolph Ends ‘Sunshine Swing’ with $10,000 Victory; Grant Hilfiger Crate 602 Sportsman Star

Written by Chris Moore

LAKE CITY, FL – Erick Rudolph capped off the inaugural Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled by Sunoco ‘Sunshine Swing’ by winning the 50-lap, $10,000-to-win main event on Saturday night at All-Tech Raceway.

After having strong runs in both feature’s on Friday night, one cut short for mechanical issues, the Ransomville, N.Y., hot shoe powered his big-block powered No. 25R to the front in the final 10 laps to steal the show.

Rudolph’s one prior STSS victory also paid $10,000-to-win at the ‘York County Nationals’ at Pa.’s BAPS Motor Speedway in 2017.

Sprakers, N.Y.’s Stewart Friesen grabbed the LKQ North Florida $500 ‘Sunshine Swing’ championship with a runner-up finish. He also received a set of VAHLCO Elite Series® Wheels worth $1,400.

Milford, Del.’s Jordan Watson and Sheffield, Mass., native Andy Bachetti led the field to series “starter” Joe Kriss’ green flag in front of a packed house at the Florida half-mile. 

The “Wild Child,” Andy Bachetti raced into turn number one to grab the lead. Billy Dunn, of Watertown, N.Y., and Billy Pauch Jr., of Frenchtown, N.J., followed Bachetti ahead of Watson to occupy the top three spots.

The stars of night one at the ‘Sunshine Swing’ – Stewart Friesen and Mat Williamson – were on the charge again, starting eighth and 12th after the Beyea Custom Headers redraw. The two occupied the fifth and sixth spots, respectively, just five laps into the affair.

Pauch Jr. was challenging Andy Bachetti for the lead until the leaders caught lap traffic. Bachetti was able to open his advantage over the rest of the field until lap 15, when Bachetti spun out negotiating lap traffic.

Billy Dunn would inherit the lead and command the race for the next several laps as several drivers around him went pit-side, including several drivers in the top top-10.

Two drivers taking advantage of the chaos in between yellow flags were Mike Gular and Rudolph.

On lap 32, Billy Dunn relinquished the lead to Mat Williamson, and Rudolph pulled up alongside. That restart however, would belong to Mike Gular. Boyertown, Pa.’s Gular restarted fourth, and drove around Savannah, N.Y.’s Matt Sheppard and underneath Rudolph to take second.

One restart later, on lap 39, Gular would do one better, powering around Williamson to take the lead. Williamson would also lose second to Sheppard before the yellow on lap 41.

The restart that changed the race for good, ensued. Gular and Sheppard washed up the track, and Rudolph drove around Williamson and under the two leaders to take the lead for good.

Rudolph survived the remaining restarts to grab the Sunoco checkered flags. Friesen would climb all the way back to second to grab the Sunshine Swing championship. Mike Gular would hang onto third with Billy Pauch Jr., and Matt Sheppard rounding out the top five.

Phoenix, N.Y.’s Larry Wight finished sixth, Beaver Dams, N.Y.’s, Dillon Groover grabbed seventh and the Ocala Restaurant Hard Charger after starting 26th. Williamson faded to eighth, with Belle Mead, N.J.’s Brandon Grosso and Boyertown, Pa.’s Ryan Watt rounded out the top-10 driving for Rick Regalski.

The Crate 602 Sportsman went 30-laps in distance for a $1,500 payday to round out the ‘Sunshine Swing.’ Cresco, Pa.’s Grant Hilfiger started on the pole and led all 30-laps to win the race and the $500 LKQ North Florida ‘Sunshine Swing’ championship.

Despite challenges from Tony Ballestero and Tim Hartman Jr. throughout the race, Hilfiger held onto the lead for his first career STSS win.

Ransomville, N.Y.’s Jim Harbison came from 18th to finish second. Derek Webb, of Watertown, N.Y. finished third. Tim Hartman Jr., of Niskayuna N.Y. and Hamburg, Pa.’s Craig Whitmoyer rounded out the top five. 

Racing resumes for the STSS on March 6-7 at Delaware’s Georgetown Speedway with the fifth running of the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial featuring the STSS Velocita-USA South Region presented by Design for Vision and Sunglass Central Modified opener (49 laps, $10,049 to win) and STSS Crate 602 Sportsman South Region lid-lifter (25 laps, $1,490 to win) and a host of other divisions.

FRIESEN SWEEPS SUNSHINE SWING FRIDAY NIGHT DOUBLE AT ALL-TECH

Written by Chris Moore

LAKE CITY, FL – Sprakers,  N.Y.’s Stewart Friesen brought his broom to the All-Tech Raceway on Friday night, sweeping each of the first two races of the ‘Sunshine Swing’ for the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) fueled by Sunoco.

The “Friesen Sweep” at earned him a total of $12,500 after the first two races of the STSS maiden voyage to Florida.

After Mother Nature intervened on Thursday night, the STSS crew gave the Florida faithful a double program for Friday night, and it lived up to the billing.

Friesen started the first feature on the pole starting position after the Beyea Custom Headers redraw with Phoenix, N.Y.’s, Larry Wight starting alongside.

Friesen would grab the early lead while Wight followed in toe as the guys continued learning the new track.

Waterloo, N.Y.’s, Matt Sheppard had quickly climbed from ninth and into the top five.

After a yellow on lap 13 for Queensbury, N.Y.’s, Demetrios Drellos slowing on the backstretch, things got interesting.

Friesen elected to restart on the bottom, giving Wight the top, and Wight took advantage, taking the lead at the exit of turn two. Two laps later, another came out giving Wight lane choice on the ensuing restart.

To everyone’s surprise, Wight chose the bottom, despite taking the lead from the top side on the previous restart. Friesen took advantage, snatching the lead back from Wight.

While the leaders traded spots back and forth, Saint Catherine’s, Ontario’s Mat Williamson had gone from fifth to third on the two restarts, and was challenged Wight for second the next several laps.

Another yellow on lap 24, gave us another double file restart, and again Friesen, the leader, chose the bottom. This time, it worked for him, as he maintained the lead.

It was “Money” Mat, grabbing another spot on a restart, this one moving him into the runner-up spot.

Another yellow two laps later would result in a single-file restart, but Williamson couldn’t do anything with Friesen, as he coasted to his 18th career STSS win.

Mat Williamson would finish second, with Matt Sheppard climbing to third late. Larry Wight faded back to the fourth spot, with Sidney, N.Y.’s, Billy Decker came from 16th to round out the top five. Finishing sixth was Billy Dunn, with Middletown, N.Y.’s, Anthony Perrego finishing seventh, Brisbane, Australia’s, Peter Britten finishing eighth, Belle Mead, N.J.’s came home ninth, with Frenchtown, N.J.’s, Billy Pauch Jr. rounding out the top ten. 

The second feature, 40 laps in distance, would not come as easy for Friesen. The fans in attendance and tuning in on Dirt Track Digest TV were treated to a phenomenal race. Matt Sheppard had the pole starting position, along with Watertown, N.Y.’s Billy Dunn on the outside.

Dunn would grab the lead with Sheppard, and Friesen following in toe. Mat Williamson was the man on the move, as he had climbed from seventh to fourth and was catching the top three.

On lap 10, things went haywire at the front of the field. The top four traded spots back and forth while working in lap traffic. At one point, Matt Sheppard went from the lead to fifth in a lap and a half. Billy Dunn lost the lead and gained it back twice in the commotion up front.

A lap 15 yellow gave the field a chance to reset after Milford, Del.’s Jordan Watson got into the wall on the backstretch after being three-‘wide with the two leaders.

On the restart, Dunn would lose the lead for good, as Williamson took the lead from the outside and Dunn could never get it back.

Erick Rudolph was another driver making moves, coming from his 22nd starting position, the Ransomville, N.Y. driver had climbed into the top 10 and was still advancing.

Lap 23 Stewart Friesen went to the outside and began to pressure Mat Williamson, before taking the lead on lap 27.

However, the fight wasn’t over, as Williamson moved up to the outside to follow Friesen as the outside groove became the preferred groove among majority of the drivers in the top 10.

A lap 34 yellow presented Friesen with another choice, this time, he chose the top. Williamson threw everything but the kitchen sink at Friesen but never could get by, as Friesen walked to his second win of the night.

Friesen would say a farewell to his friend Jake Marine, who passed away on Wednesday afternoon, in victory lane following the feature. “We’d always end up BS’ing in the trailer until 2 in the morning at Volusia.”

Mat Williamson would take his second runner-up finish of the night. Anthony Perrego made a charge late to grab the third spot with Matt Sheppard finishing fourth, and Erick Rudolph coming all the way from 22nd to a top five.

Billy Pauch Jr. came from 14th to sixth, with Billy Dunn finishing seventh, Billy Decker coming from 24th to eighth, and Sheffield, Mass.’, Andy Bachetti coming from 26th to ninth, and Peter Britten rounding out the top 10.

The Crate 602 Sportsman feature were also swept, but by a pair of brothers as Michael and Tony Ballestero won each of the 25 lap main events, picking up $1,250 apiece plus the Evergreen Fuels Inc. bonus cash.

In the first feature, Michael Ballestero, of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., would start in fourth and passed Brian Sadler at the halfway point and never looked back. Sadler who led the entire first half of the races car went away from him as the race went on.

Cresco, Pa.’s, Grant Hilfiger made a charge from his twelfth starting spot grab the runner-up spot. Tony Ballestero, of Ballston Spa, N.Y., would come from 11th to third. Niskayuna, N.Y.’s, Tim Hartman Jr. came home fourth and Kevin Chaffee of Bradford, Vt., would round out the top five.

In the second feature, Tony Ballestero would again come from 11th, this time to win a thrilling three-car battle with Grant Hilfiger and Tim Hartman Jr. At one point the three were side-by-side for the lead, with Ballestero passing both on the bottom.

Grant Hilfiger would again come from twelfth and come up one spot short. Tim Hartman Jr. finished third, while Robert Delormier, of Akwesasne, N.Y. finished fourth and Bradford, Vt.’s Kevin Chaffee would again grab the fifth spot.

The “Sunshine Swing” concludes Saturday night with the Modifieds running 50 laps for $10,000 to win and the Crate 602 Sportsman running 30-laps for $1,500 to win. The event will again be carried live on Dirt Track Digest TV. Gates will open at 3 p.m. with hot laps beginning at 6 p.m.
