Frankoski Makes It 3 For 3 With Midget Win At Hickory
Jun 8, 2009 - updated Jun 8th, 2009 7:23pm

Hickory, NC. --

For Immediate Release: June 6, 2009

Jeremy Frankoski made his third consecutive trip to victory lane and extended his points lead in the USAC Ford Focus Carolina Series after winning the 35 lap feature held at Hickory Motor Speedway Saturday night. Frankoski also won his second Carolina Series pole with a fast qualifying time of 14.987 seconds.

“We weren’t great in warm ups and I knew we needed to make some changes,” said Frankoski. “Bradley Riethmeyer made a spring change and it really did the trick to improve our lap times.”

However, the line up was inverted to sixth place after time trials and with the other top six qualifiers separated by less than a tenth of a second; the race was looking more like a traffic jam for Frankoski. Steven Intravaia (15.256) and Eric Coomes (15.212) shared the front row while Scott Hunter (15.200) and Michael Sboro (15.185) were positioned in row 2. Shane MacMillan (15.183) started inside row 3 with Frankoski on the outside.

Intravaia took the green flag and the lead, but was overcome by Sboro on Lap 3. Frankoski wasted little time getting to the front and completed the pass for second by lap 4. Sboro led for 14 laps with Frankoski looking him over, unable to see any easy passing.

“Mike was really fast tonight and I had to work hard to get around him,” praised Frankoski. “I realized that the race was getting to the halfway point and I knew I had to do something.” On lap 16, Frankoski set up a move coming out of turn four, getting down low on Sboro who drifted higher coming out. Driving hard into turn one, Frankoski gained an inside advantage and completed the pass as they exited turn two. Racing out onto the back stretch, Frankoski never looked back.

Jeremy Frankoski continues to lead the Carolina Series with MacMillan (-32), Hunter (-41), Coomes (-55) and Intravaia (-60) completing the top five.

The USAC Ford Focus Carolina Series heads to the ¼ mile oval at Concord Motorsports Park on June 17 for the first of 6 races that also make up the Concord Midget Championship.
