Stewart Friesen certainly had his fill of traveling both on and off the race track during a recent four-day period as he competed at both the Orange County Fair Speedway and Martinsville Speedway in Virginia.
But Friesen capped off that four-day stretch Sunday evening in impressing fashion as he withstood both a long weather delay and a star-studded Modified field to defend his championship in the 58th annual Eastern States 200 at OCFS.

In 1989, actor, film writer, and voice actor Johnny Brennan formed a comedy act consisting of recording prank calls he would make to unsuspecting recipients. Each call was made in character, usually with over-the-top voices influenced by Brennan’s youth growing up in New York. In 1993, the first Jerky Boys album is released and it would go on to sell enough copies to become certified platinum and develop a worldwide following.
One of the settings of Brennan’s youth to inspire his comedy was the legendary Orange County Fair Speedway. Having first attended in 1966, he remembers leaving the races with a picture of prolific OCFS driver, Will Cagle.
