Tri-Track Open Modified Series
Hirschman Carrying Momentum into SRX at Stafford
Jun 30, 2022
Ryan Newman landed in victory lane Saturday night at Stafford Motor Speedway to earn his first win of the 2022 SRX season. Newman finished Heat 1 in seventh place followed by a sixth-place finish in Heat 2. For the 75-lap Main event, Newman started the race from the ninth position and made a late-race pass to score the win. Marco Andretti finished second followed by Paul Tracy in third. Ryan Hunter-Reay won Heat 1 and Bobby Labonte won Heat 2.
A really special night to win here tonight at Stafford. Amazing night for me in the SRX Series. For Bruton Smith and his family, this is special. For Bryan Clauson and his family, we got to park it in victory lane. I’m just really proud of everybody’s efforts collectively. To have my daughters here was so special.
It was really cool racing SRX. I took me all day to start figuring out where I was going and I really only started figuring it out the last 10-15 laps of the race of how to drive these cars. It was really cool to be side by side with Tony Stewart, Ryan Newman and Greg Biffle, all these guys I grew up watching that honestly, motivated me to pursue a career in racing. That was great.
