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.
