Stewart Friesen, HFR Head Into NASCAR Truck Series Championship Race With Momentum

Story By: HALMAR FRIESEN RACING – STATESVILLE, NC – Stewart Friesen has qualified for the NASCAR Truck Series Championship 4 for the first time in his career and enters the weekend at the Homestead-Miami Speedway as the number one seed.

Friesen has two top-10 finishes in three starts at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

“In racing I feel like you’re only as good as your last race,” Friesen said.  “We were able to overcome adversity last week in Phoenix and get another win and gain momentum that none of the other competitors had in this round of the playoffs, which was pretty cool.  I feel like having that momentum puts us a step ahead of our competitors going into Homestead.”

Friesen has made 29 starts at 1.5-mile tracks and has earned 10 top-five and 14 top-10 finishes. He has two runner-up results and two third-place finishes already this season at 1.5-milers.

“I enjoy going to the mile-and-a-half tracks,” he said.  “We’ve had good speed there all year.  Our Chevy Silverados have always been fast but we haven’t been able to get a win on intermediate tracks yet. Going into a track like Homestead with the tire fall off we’re going to encounter, it’s going to be fun.”

Friesen and the No. 52 team will utilize chassis No. 301 this weekend in Homestead.  The Sprakers, NY driver has two top-10 finishes and 88 laps led in six events with this chassis this season.
