Yetman Earns Syracuse Pro Stock Pole


SYRACUSE, N.Y.  – Rob Yetman set fast time in Saturday’s Pro Stock time trials at the New York State Fairgrounds, speeding his way to the top starting spot in the BACC-OFF DIRTcar Pro Stock Championship.

Stefanksi claimed the outside pole with the second-fastest time.

“It’s the best place to start around here, that’s for sure,” said Yetman, who has been gaining momentum all season with eight wins at his home track, including a DIRTcar Pro Stock Series win, to claim the track championship. “When you have a year like that, the momentum seems to carry.”

Yetman finished fifth in last year’s NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week BACC-OFF DIRTcar Pro Stock Championship rwith Stefanski picking up the win. After his success yesterday, Yetman is confident rolling into Sunday, even if he’ll be sharing the front row with Stefanski.

“We haven’t touched the car all weekend, just nuts and bolts. We’re not going to change anything for tomorrow either,” Yetman said. “It’s been substantially quick, and handling – it’s been a dream to drive. I don’t really want to mess with it at all.”

Saturday’s Pro Stock time trial set the first 24 spots in Sunday’s field. The remaining six positions in the 30-car field will be determined by Last Chance Qualifiers before the race Sunday. Green flag for the NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week XLII BACC-OFF DIRTcar Pro Stock Championship is scheduled for noon Sunday, Oct. 13.
