Friesen and Pesarek added to Little Valley Pro Stock Field.

Eighteen year old Stewart Friesen, son of Ransomville Speedway promoter Jamie Friesen, and an accomplished racer despite his tender years, will be accepting a new challenge, as he will chauffeur the No. 7 Good Guys Transmissions Monte Carlo of Scott Kerwin, who has prior commitments, at the Empire Network Super DIRT Series Pro Stock tour event at Little Valley Speedway on Wednesday, July 3rd. Friesen drives the No. 10a Sportsman car at Ransomville, where he is the current point leader and winner of the 25 lap event on June 28th, and Merrittville Speedway. He is also an accomplished three quarter midget pilot. Racing both outdoors at Lancaster Motorsports Park and other venues, and indoors on the tough Norhtern Motorsports Indoor Midget Series at the Niagara Falls Convention Center, Stewart has had remarkable success. Racing indoors against the likes of Greg Furlong, and Lou Cicconi, he garnered a victory at the tender age of seventeen and is one of the fiercest competitors on the circuit. No stranger to high speed, Friesen will get the chance to test his mettle against the top Pro Stock pilots at what is arguably the fastest track, other than Syracuse, that the Pro stocks will visit.

Also making an appearance at Little Valley will be Steve Pesarek, the 1995 Mr. DIRT Pro Stock champion, who will be piloting the Met Life Monte Carlo of tour director, Dave McCready, in quest of the $1,000.00 winner's check.
