EASTERN STATES WEEKEND – SUNDAY RESULTS (By FRANK CATIZONE)

MIDDLETOWN – It was a real family affair in victory lane at the Orange County Fair Speedway yesterday afternoon as Stewart Friesen and his young family celebrated his second Eastern States 200 championship before a packed house. 

Friesen and his racing wife Jessica, who became the first women ever to qualify for this prestigious race, were all smiles as their young son Parker waved the checkered flag in triumphant fashion following his father's $40,000 victory. 

"I couldn't be prouder," said Friesen. "After Jessica qualified for her first 200 lapper on Friday, we sat down and picked our strategy for the race. Things worked out just perfect."
