Friesen Dominates for Second Consecutive Cole Cup Victory at Utica-Rome Speedway By MIKE MALLETT/JOHN TIFF
VERNON, NY - In the 2013 version of the SUNY Canton/Gates Cole Associates Cole Cup Stewart Friesen rallied on the final lap to win the race. This year’s edition went much differently for the Sprakers, N.Y., driver as he dominated the 30-lap race securing his second win of the event as well as the $10,000 winner’s share.
Making the victory even more special is that husband and wife finished one two. Friesen and long-time Sprint Car driver Jessica Zemken were married earlier in the week and the duo grabbed the top two spots on the podium on Saturday night.
“Totally unbelievable,” said Friesen in Victory Lane. “I have to thank Jess (Zemken) for pushing me toward these Sprint Cars. I have to thank Doug (Emery) and Barb (Patterson), Tommy Patterson and everyone associated with this Doug Emery Motorsports team for all they give us. Doug tweaked on this car all year just preparing for this race and the notes paid off and for the 1z team to be second is unbelievable. It caps off a great week for us.” Read More...
UTICA-ROME SPEEDWAY WILL CLOSE 2014 SEASON OUT WITH ANNUAL BANQUET ON NOVEMBER 29
VERNON, NY- On Saturday November 29, the 2014 season will officially be put to rest as the Annual Awards Banquet will be the final event on the Utica-Rome Speedway calendar. Track point money and tire refund will be handed out at the annual gala at the beautiful Turning Stone Casino and Resort with the top 10 in points being honored for their efforts.
Stewart Friesen fought tooth and nail with Matt Sheppard all season long to become the 2014 Modified Track Champion, earning the $10,000 top prize that goes to the top point getter. Add in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series track title money plus the New York State NASCAR title, Friesen will net over $27,000 for his track title. Sheppard, who had to settle for second, will still earn just over $10,000 for his efforts. Mike Mahaney, Larry Wight, and Pat Ward rounded out the top five spots while Ryan Phelps, Willy Decker, Danny Varin, Jason Rood, and Tim Mayne filled out the top 10 positions.
Jeremy Vunk was the 2014 Sportsman titlist over Claude Hutchings Jr., Steve Way, Jack Miller, Mike Walton, Randy Shantel, Mike Stiles, Heath Carney, Craig Pope, and Kyle Kiehn.
A familiar face was once again the champion in the Pro Stock ranks as Tom Denton was again the champion, out racing Glenn Forward, Mark Effner, Chris Carr, AJ Digsby, Bret Belden, Chris Cunningham, Ed Ostrander, Dana Camenga, and Ryan Lund to the championship.
Russ Marsden returned to weekly competition in the Pure Stocks and was rewarded by taking home the 2014 Pure Stock title. Marsden held off Bill Mason, Ricky Breed, Ron Hawker, Chuck Cushman, Rob Thieme, Frank Hyatt, Jim Thomas, Ernie Staelens, and Bryan Owens to secure the championship.
