Friesen Gobbles Up Georgetown Field


GEORGETOWN, Del. – Stewart Friesen stomped the big-block modified field during the Gobbler event on Saturday at Georgetown Speedway.

Friesen led nearly the entire 35-lap distance, eventually racing away to a more than 13 second victory at the half-mile dirt oval. He took the lead from Mike Maresca on the second circuit and was unchallenged thereafter.

The only thing that slowed Friesen down was a caution on the 14th circuit, but even a restart was no challenge for him. He quickly pulled away again, eventually crossing the finish line 13.288 seconds ahead of runner-up Anthony Perrego.

Rick Laubach was second, 14.5 seconds off the pace set by Friesen. Maresca was fourth and Kevin Sockriter, nearly 18 seconds behind Friesen, finished fifth.

Michael White took home $2,000 for winning the companion 602 sportsman feature. Other winners on the evening included Kyle Hardy (RUSH Late Models), Todd Sammons (Little Lincoln), Robert Smith (Delaware Super Trucks) and Robert Paczkowski (Chargers).

The finish:

Stewart Friesen, Anthony Perrego, Rick Laubach, Michael Maresca, Kevin Sockriter, Danny Creeden, Billy Pauch Jr., Dom Buffalino, Richie Pratt Jr., Danny Bouc, Derrick McGrew, Tyler Siri, H.J. Bunting, Brad Roberts, Jimmy Zacharias, Trent Van Vorst, Jordan Watson, Eric Williams, Joseph Watson, John Willman.
