One of the biggest stars of the Super DIRTcar Series also races full-time in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series. Stewart Friesen has partnered with Chris Larsen to create Halmar Friesen Racing for his full-time foray into NASCAR Racing.
Friesen, a native of Niagara-on-the-Lake Ontario, is a decorated standout of Dirt Modifieds and Sprint Cars with over 275 victories in his dirt racing career stretching back to 1999. Friesen finished second in Super DIRTcar Series points in 2016 and picked up his fifth NAPA Super DIRT Week win at Oswego Speedway.
Stewart Friesen made his NASCAR Truck Series debut in July 2016 at Eldora Speedway, NASCAR’s only race on dirt. The ride was supposed to be a one-time deal, but quickly blossomed into five more races for Friesen before the end of 2016. It led to the formation of his new team, which will be based in Mooresville, NC.
Friesen’s opportunities in the NASCAR Truck Series have come largely from his ability to develop a complete driver’s skillset while racing 800-horsepower Big-Block Modifieds in the Northeast.
