By Curtis Berleue | Davie Franek continued his 2019 season this past weekend, adding three more races to the stat sheet, bringing his season-long race count to 57. An originally planned four-race weekend with the Empire Super Sprints saw 3 of 4 events completed, losing one to mother nature on Sunday at Utica-Rome Speedway.
Friday night, Franek made his way back to the Brewerton Speedway. Starting third in his heat, he would remain status-quo and bring the #28f across the line in third. With a 3rd place finish being good enough for the redraw Franek would draw the 8th place starting spot for the A-Main, and work his way forward for a 5th place finish.
Saturday, the Davie Franek Racing team made its way to Brewerton Speedways sister track, the Fulton Speedway. Starting on the pole of his heat race, Franek would ultimately lose one spot for a second place finish, which was still good enough to make the redraw for the second night in a row. Drawing a four, Franek would lose a little ground over the course of the 25 lap event and come home 6th in the A-Main.
After a day off due to a rainout at the Utica-Rome Speedway on Sunday, Franek made his way to the Weedsport Speedway. Again starting on the pole of his heat, Franek came home with a third place finish. Starting 12th in the A-Main, Franek would pull off early due to mechanical issues and would ultimately end the night being scored as the 19th finisher.
This coming weekend, the Davie Franek Racing team will be in action for two nights of Patriot Sprint Tour action at the New York Nationals at the Land of Legends Raceway in Canandaigua, NY. Friday night will see triple 15 lap events worth $1,000 to the winner of each. The top two finishers of each 15 lapper will be locked in to Saturday nights 30 lap $5,000 to win main event.
