Friesen and Creed to participate in dirt exhibition race

Stewart Friesen and Sheldon Creed are going to rerun their exciting finish to Thursday night’s Eldora Dirt Derby.

The two are going to go toe-to-toe again in their NASCAR Trucks one more time on the dirt, competing in a one-on-one 10-lap exhibition race at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, N.Y.

The exhibition race, which has been approved by NASCAR, is part of the track’s Centennial Race Weekend, which includes a $100,000-to-win big block modified race.

A NASCAR spokesman said since there aren’t any other dirt races in the Truck series the remainder of the 2019 season, neither competitor would gain a competitive advantage. NASCAR also sees this as an opportunity to expose Trucks racing on dirt to another audience.

The 10-lap exhibition will take place Saturday, Aug. 17, prior to the $100,000-to-win race.
