Sears Aces 358-Modified Futures Race


SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Tim Sears, Jr., debuted his No. 83x small block at the New York State Fairgrounds’ Moody Mile with a win in Friday’s DIRTcar 358-Modified Futures race.

Sears started at the pole in the 15-lap rookie race, and showed that he was taking to driving his 358-Modified on the Mile like a fish to water.

“It’s a little different, not quite as much motor, but almost,” Sears said of his new ride.

Sears placed 20th in time trials, putting him in the tenth starting spot for tonight’s Twin 20 qualifier for Saturday’s Gander Mountain 150.

Rounding out the top five in the DIRTcar 358-Modified Futures race are Jason Herrington in second, Brian Murphy in third, David Papineau in fourth, and Jeff Rockefeller in fifth.
