Stefanski & Carlson Top BNC 25 Pro Stock Championship Qualifiers

 

Syracuse, NY— October 6, 2007 — By Tom Skibinski, DIRTcar Racing NorthEast PR Director

 

For the second time in the past four years, overall Hoosier Tire-Sunoco Race Fuels Mr. DIRTcar Pro Stock points leader Pete Stefanski earned the pole position start for the Pro Stock Championship during Super DIRT Week. Only time will tell if it will be enough to score his first victory at the New York State Fairgrounds, where he placed second last autumn in his only previous trip to the podium.

 

Stefanski collected the $500 Pole Award presented by Terrell’s Potato Chips. Connecticut invader Don Carlson was second quickest to win the $250 prize also posted by Terrell’s in support of DIRTcar racing NorthEast’s top full-fender touring division.

 

Stefanski bettered 47 cars under the clocks, earning the pole starting position for the 25-Lap BNC Motorsports Pro Stock Championship with a time of 36.852 seconds (97.688 mph) behind the wheel of his San-Ter Sewing-PJ Niagara Falls Travel #2 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Carlson’s own Chevy MC is backed by Benzinger Wine and Leary Construction.

 

Among the first dozen cars to take time in the first of three groupings, Stefanski set fast time early in the afternoon and watched as his nearest challenges fell by the wayside one by one. Carlson came out at the beginning of group two before circling the Syracuse Mile with the second fastest time of the day bettering those of top touring contenders Clayton Benedict, Joey Ladouceur, Allen Peters and defending BNC Champion Louie Jackson.

 

The top-24 drivers are now locked into the starting grid for Sunday’s BNC Motorspotrs Pro Stock Championship event. Following the fast times posted by Stefanski and Carlson to round out the top six drivers were Capital District chauffeurs Nick Stone and Rick Dempsey, Jackson and inaugural Super DIRT Week (1997) winner Kenny Martin.

 

Line-ups for a pair of ‘Last Chance Race’ qualifiers have been set with 25 drivers looking to secure a spot on Sunday’s starting grid, with the eventual winner taking home the first-place check of $2,000.
