DAVID VAN HORN ENDS 4-YEAR, 15-DAY STSS DRY SPELL TUESDAY AT NEW EGYPT

NEW EGYPT, NJ – Four years and 15 days.

That’s how long it had been since David Van Horn Jr. reached Victory Lane with the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco.

On Tuesday night at New Egypt Speedway, Van Horn picked up his first series win since August 5, 2015 in style, topping the ‘Dirty Jersey 6’ 40-lap main for a $6,250 payday in Round No. 6 of the STSS Velocita-USA South Region presented by Design for Vision and Sunglass Central.

The win – Van Horn’s second with the series – came at the controls of Fred Vahlsing’s VAHLCO Wheels-sponsored No. 323ov with big-block power between the frame rails.

Van Horn, whose prior checkered flag came at Delaware International Speedway in Delmar, Del., felt he brought the right combination to the unique D-shaped 7/16ths – mile New Egypt track.

“It was awesome,” Van Horn, who resides in Ringoes, N.J., reflected. “Even last week, when the track was slick here the car was perfect. Tonight the track had a little more bite. The bottom was the place to be early then the top cleaned off and I moved up.

“It feels good to win one of these (STSS) races again. The competition is always tough.”

Van Horn started third in the main event. From the pole, veteran Wade Hendrickson shot into the lead and paced the opening four circuits before Van Horn took command for the first time.

Hendrickson held second position through a lap-15 restart when Danny Bouc – driving the Craig and Leslie Pondish No. 6 – rolled the extreme outside lane to second after starting ninth. 

Bouc continued his drive toward the front, sweeping by Van Horn to take the lead before a caution on the 19th lap.

Bouc picked the outside lane for the restart, but Van Horn was ready. DVH surged off the bottom to lead the Precision Hydraulic & Oil Halfway Lap. Van Horn now changed his line to the outside with Bouc in pursuit.

Bouc’s effort stalled on lap 24 with a flat right-rear tire. Van Horn led Hendrickson and an emerging Brandon Grosso, who started seventh.

Grosso took over the runner-up spot on the 26th lap. Despite four cautions in the race’s final 14 circuits, Van Horn was flawless, powering to a victory at the track where he is the defending champion.

Montgomery, N.J.’s Grosso finished a stout second, collecting the $3,000 payday that accompanied it. Ryan Watt of Boyertown, Pa., righted his New Egypt misfortunes with a third-place result in the Ron Roberts-owned No. 14W. Mike Gular of Boyertown, Pa., raced amidst the top-six for the entire distance and placed fourth with Terry Fasnacht’s No. 2A.  Lawrenceville, N.J.’s Hendrickson was fifth in Pat Michael’s No. 51M.

Finishing sixth through 10th, respectively, were Andy Bachetti of Sheffield, Mass., who charged forward after pitting early in the event; 12th-starter Duane Howard of Oley, Pa., in Norm Hansell’s No. 357; Craig Von Dohren, also of Oley, Pa., after starting 15th; track regular Cale Ross of Lambertville, N.J., up from 18th; and a resurgent Bouc of Pipersville, Pa.

Billy Pauch Jr. set the Beyea Headers Fast Time Award with a lap of 16.613 seconds, collecting $100.

Heat winners were Howard, Blewett and Pauch Jr. Anthony Perrego topped the consolation.

The Capitol Renegade United Racing Club (URC) 360 Sprint Cars returned to New Egypt for the $2,000-to-win ‘Turnpike 25’ event. Wantage, N.J.’s Davie Franek took home the cash. After a mid-race challenge from J.J. Grasso (who succumbed to a flat tire), Franek motored away for the triumph on Garden State soil.

Adam Carberry, Josh Weller, Tyler Ross and Ryan Stillwaggon completed the front five.  

Steve Davis of Jackson, N.J., led wire-to-wire in the 20-lap STSS Crate 602 Sportsman main event, taking home a $1,500 payday aboard the Howie Finch Jr. Hig Fab Chassis.

The Crate 602 Sportsman drivers completed timed hot laps to set the order for the fourth event of the ’19 South Region. Davis set the fast time and started from the pole. In a fast-paced event slowed just twice by caution flags, Davis led wire-to-wire.

Ryan Simmons finished a stout second, followed by Ryan Heim, Joe Toth and Jim Housworth.

NEW EGYPT NOTEBOOK: The efficiently run program saw the final checkered flag of the night for the URC 360 Sprint Cars waving at 10:10 p.m. with 76 total race cars in the pit area (30 STSS Modifieds, 26 STSS Crate 602 Sportsman and 20 URC Sprint Cars)….

The Chemidlin family presented a $747 Hard Charger Award in the STSS Modified division in memory of late driver and car owner John Chemidlin. Rick Laubach received the extra cash driving from 24thto 13th with members of the Chemidlin family making the presentation….

The STSS Modified podium saw a trio of engine combinations. Van Horn won with a traditional big-block; Grosso a large cubic inch small-block; and Watt a sealed spec engine on gasoline….

Uncharacteristic tough night for Matt Sheppard, who suffered a flat tire running inside the top six, spun once and was collected in a turn-three incident before limping home 16th….

Track conditions were wide and tacky with limited dust for the event, drawing praise from competitors and fans….

Delaware’s Georgetown Speedway hosts the next STSS event with the VAHLCO Racing Wheels ‘Blast at the Beach’ presented by Melon 1 on Tuesday, August 27 (rain date Wednesday, August 28). The event will be recorded for broadcast on MAV-TV and features STSS Modifieds (35 laps, $6,000 to win) in a Velocita-USA South Region event, STSS Crate 602 Sportsman (20 laps, $1,500 to win), Delmarva Chargers and Delaware Super Trucks.

Stewart Friesen Needs All 50 Fonda Speedway Laps to Win STSS ‘Firecracker 50’ Wednesday Worth $10,700

Written by Chris Moore

FONDA, NY – For the first time in the history of the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco, Fonda Speedway joined the series schedule in 2019.

And what a debut it was on Wednesday night.

After a wild 50-lap roller-coaster of a race, it was Sprakers, N.Y.’s, Stewart Friesen grabbing the win and the $10,700 in the inaugural Fuccillo Automotive Group ‘Firecracker 50’ presented by Teo-Pro Car at the Track of Champions.

Friesen needed every one of the race’s 50 laps to get the job done before the largest crowd in Short Track Super Series history.

After blowing a right-rear tire with 19 laps to go, Friesen roared back to beat Matt Sheppard to the line on the final lap to grab the Sunoco checkered flag in Event No. 5 of the Halmar International North Region.

At the drop of the green it was a Friesen leading the way. However, it was Jessica Friesen who grabbed the lead from her front-row starting position in the early going.

After a yellow on lap five for Larry Wight, who made his STSS debut Wednesday night, Jessica Friesen began to show the field, and the crowd, she was there to win.

Friesen pulled away from Rocky Warner and Erick Rudolph before catching lap traffic. Meanwhile, Stewart Friesen had climbed from his eighth starting position, and got to second.

Stewart would eventually make the move past his wife, Jessica, to take the lead on lap 23. However, on lap 31 the entire race flipped on its ear.

The yellow flag came out with Jessica slowing due to engine issues off of turn two, while nearly simultaneously, Stewart blew a right-rear tire in turns three and four.

All of a sudden, Waterloo, N.Y.’s, Matt Sheppard would inherit the lead after stealthily climbing from his seventh starting position to third. However, on the restart, Rudolph, of Ransomville, N.Y., jumped to the outside and drive around Sheppard for the lead.

It appeared his lead would be short lived with Sheppard applying the pressure, going high and low, searching for a lane. Meanwhile, Friesen had quickly gone from the back of the pack, to the sixth position after slicing through the field.

After a yellow on lap 37, Sheppard took advantage of the restart, taking the lead and pulling away from Rudolph. After a couple of laps, it became apparent, Sheppard’s biggest competition was a blue and black number 44 machine powered by a 360 small-block engine.

Friesen had gotten to the runner-up spot with eight laps to go, but it appeared he would run out of time. That was until Sheppard caught the tail of the field with three laps to go. Friesen closed fast and was on Sheppard’s bumper at the white flag.

Setting up a last lap for the ages, Sheppard left the top open in turns three and four, and it was all Friesen needed. Side-by-side, door-to-door, sparks flying and a roaring crowd, it was Friesen edging Sheppard for the win.

“I thought we were gonna drive away when we got the lead, but Stew’s just so fast here,” Sheppard said afterward.

“This is just awesome,” was the most Friesen could muster in Victory Lane following the win in front of a vocal crowd.

Rudolph hung on for a podium finish in third. Middletown, N.Y.’s, Anthony Perrego would drive the Graham Racing No. 18 machine to a fourth-place finish. Track regular and four-time Fonda winner Rocky Warner of Gloversville, N.Y., rounded out the top five.

Andy Bachetti of Sheffield, Mass., recorded a sixth-place result.  Phoenix, N.Y.’s Larry Wight came back for seventh after his lap-five flat tire. The “Corporate Jet” Brett Hearn of Sussex, N.J., grabbed an eighth-place finish. Mat Williamson of St. Catharine’s, Ont., finished ninth and Johnstown, N.Y.’s Craig Hanson got his second consecutive STSS 10th-place finish.

$100 Rob Sherlock Roofing heat winners were Mike Gular, Rudolph, Perrego and Friesen with 39 Modifieds in attendance. Larry Wight topped the consolation.

Tim Hartman Jr. of Niskayuna, N.Y., took home $2,000 as the winner of the 25-lap STSS Crate 602 Sportsman main event. Hartman, the current point leader at Fonda and in the STSS Crate 602 Sportsman North Region, started third and took the lead on lap seven from pole starter Adam McAuliffe.

Brian Calabrese, Adam McAuliffe, Mark Mortensen and Chad Edwards put on the most entertaining battle of the night, battling back-and-forth for the second and third positions.

When the checkered flew, it was Calabrese grabbing the runner-up spot and McAuliffe would round out the podium finishers. Edwards and Mortensen completed the front five.

Hartman won for the second time this season with the STSS. He was a Memorial Day weekend victor at Thunder Mountain Speedway in Center Lisle, N.Y., to kick off the North Region.

FONDA FINDS: The stout 39-car STSS Modified field was joined by 35 Crate 602 Sportsman on hand. The spacious grandstand area was filled to near capacity with a huge crowd on hand….

A FONDA FIRST: SHORT TRACK SUPER SERIES INVADES TRACK OF CHAMPIONS JULY 3

FONDA, NY – There are very few ‘firsts’ left for a facility with a storied history such as Fonda Speedway.

On July 3, however, there will be something all-new to the famed Track of Champions.

A number of other cash awards and contingency awards will further sweeten the pot for competitors.

Short Track Super Series Modifieds will sport sail panels, unique to the speedway at Fonda.

The night’s program will be recorded for broadcast nationally on MAV-TV with a September air date targeted.

The ‘Firecracker 50’ marks the fifth of nine STSS Halmar International North Region events with a $12,500 championship looming at year-end. Following his win at Outlaw Speedway in Dundee, N.Y., on June 19, Stewart Friesen of Sprakers, N.Y., sits atop the standings.
