ABOUT STEWART FRIESEN
Stewart is a very accomplished Super DIRTcar Series driver winning several marquee events multiple times and is closing in on 400 Dirt Modified victories. As a full-time competitor in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, he partnered with Chris Larsen to create the multiple-race winning Halmar Friesen Racing and the No. 52 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro team.
Friesen, a native of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, is a decorated stand out driver of Dirt Modifieds and Sprint Cars with almost 400 victories stretching back to 1999. Friesen won the Short Track Super Series North and South Championships in 2020.
Friesen made his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut in July 2016 at Eldora Speedway. The venture was supposed to be a one-time deal, but quickly blossomed into five more races that season. In turn, it led to the creation of Halmar Friesen Racing and the No. 52 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro team, based in Statesville, NC.
Friesen’s opportunities in the NASCAR Truck Series came largely from his ability to develop a complete driver’s skillset while racing 800-horsepower Big-Block Modifieds in the Northeast.
