Stewart Friesen has made news before in weekly racing circles and for that reason, his personal accomplishments have to be truly grand in order to qualify as a Newsmaker. It’s a higher standard.
But with consecutive mid-week wins at Accord, Albany-Saratoga and Mohawk, Friesen hit new heights.
That’s three totally different tracks, two wholly different sanctioning bodies, and a unique squad of competitors every night.
When the final checkered flag was thrown and the final oversized check was presented post-race, Friesen had earned over $21,000.
Even for a man who makes news, this was a Newsmaker of a week!
