If Stewart Friesen is going to win a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, this weeks race comes in a perfect spot to do so in. Friesen, 32 is a dirt racer by nature. That’s where he’s had his most success in the sport. Then, he transitioned into a full time Truck Series ride for 2018. With a team that had a limited budget and transitioned into an alliance with GMS Racing, they’re showing favorable results already.
Friesen’s first race came at Eldora in 2016. His first pole came there last year where he led 93 laps en route to a second place result. This season, the Canadian has finished in the top 10 seven times including six of which inside of the top six. He even brought his No. 52 Chevrolet home runner-up last week in Kentucky. In fact, he enters this weekend’s race on a roll.
Second last year in Eldora, second last week in Kentucky, second last month in Texas. The numbers are all there for him to win. Can he do so?
What a perfect spot if he can reach victory lane on Wednesday night. A dirt racer by trade moving up to the Truck Series on a full time basis this year and earning that historic first win on a dirt track in July.
Find me a better scenario.
