By Curtis Berleue | This past weekend, Davie Franek and crew only had one event scheduled, and that was at the Woodhull Raceway in Woodhull, NY for the third and final Patriot Sprint Tour visit of the season.
The night started out with Franek starting deep in heat race number one – eighth out of nine cars. In the 8-lap affair, Franek would pilot his #28f machine up to a third place finish.
With enough passing points to make the top-8 redraw, Franek drew the pole position starting spot for the main event. On a tricky track that was tough to pass on, Franek was able to out last many cautions and a brief red-flag period for a third place finish.
With just one full points paying event left on the 2019 Patriot Sprint Tour schedule (Fonda Speedway make-up A-Main from May 25 to be run September 27), Franek holds a 41 point lead over second place Joe Trenca.
This coming weekend, the Davie Franek Racing team will be in action for four consecutive nights of racing with the Empire Super Sprints. Friday night, Franek in crew will be in action at the Brewerton Speedway, then moving on to the Fulton Speedway on Saturday. Sunday, Franek will return to the Utica-Rome Speedway, the site of his Cole Cup victory and $5,000 payday earlier in the season, and will then round out the weekend at the Weedsport Speedway in Weedsport, NY.
