For the first time in 25 years a NASCAR event was postponed due to snow. Despite the frustration it caused, Stewart Friesen and crew powered through it to race on monday morning.
Friesen didn’t have as easy a time as expected on the short track. Despite leading 6 laps to pick up 21 championship points, he was unable to pull off a top 10 finish. It was a long hard battle on a short track for Friesen, who took damage on lap 16, and was later put 2 laps behind for a pit penalty.
A still positive Friesen says “We left Martinsville happy with a solid qualifying effort. After waiting out the snow day on Sunday the Halmar team ultimately had a tough race on Monday. We will use the break until Dover to work on our short track program and clean up our race strategy with the 52 Chevy Silverado. I’m excited to do a bunch of dirt racing with our 44 Halmar Modifieds in the next few weeks.”
With a scheduled month long break in the NCWTS, Friesen will get in some serious seat time with his dirt modified, returning to the northeast.
