Superstar Racing Experience
SRX Hits I-55 Raceway Ready to get Dirty
Jul 16, 2022
Stewart finished second in Heat 1 and won Heat 2. With the best average finish of the heat races, Stewart started the 70-lap Main Event from the pole position and held off a hard charging Marco Andretti to score the win.
Andretti finished second for the third week in a row followed by Ken Schrader who made his SRX Series debut on Saturday night.
With his finish, Andretti unofficially takes over the points lead ahead of Ryan Newman and Tony Stewart.
This place is pretty awesome. Kenny Schrader and these fans are diehard race fans and you aren’t going to find fans that are any more diehard in this country for late models, modifieds and sprint cars than here at Pevely.
Stewart continued, "We appreciate Kenny and all his staff, just everybody that works hard at this race track. It’s hard, it’s been a 90-degree day, sunny, windy, everything that kills dirt tracks and their staff did an awesome job giving us an awesome race track. I love it when it gets close to the wall like that, that’s when I’m having the most fun. Last year when we got ready to go to Denver for the NHRA race on Sunday, we had just won the championship at Nashville and now we won at Pevely, so looking forward to going to Denver tomorrow and having a good time.”
