Brett Hearn claims victory at Fonda Speedway, and with it the series point lead
Broken axel pits the No. 9h early, leaving Hearn and Decker to battle for Super DIRTcar Series points at Fonda Speedway
FONDA, N.Y. - Monday, September 22, 2014 - With just five feature races left in the Super DIRTcar Series, Sunday's racing at Fonda Speedway brought a dramatic points shakeup that will keep drivers battling to the very end. Eight-time series champion Brett Hearn picked up the win Sunday, Sept. 21, and with it became the new Super DIRTcar Big Block Modified Series point leader.
"These races here after Labor Day are a little bit more meaningful," the Sussex, N.J., driver reflected in Victory Lane Sunday night. "You could make up, or lose, a lot of points in one race, and I guess that's what we did."

New track promoter Matt DeLorenzo gearing up for Fonda’s season finale
WEEDSPORT, N.Y. - Thursday, September 11, 2014 - Big Block Modified driver Matt DeLorenzo spent this summer’s Saturday nights at Fonda Speedway yet he has only raced there four times this season. As the track's new promoter, DeLorenzo has been keeping himself busy off the track.
“It’s been challenging at times. It’s new to me. I’ve always been on the other side of the fence – the race car driver – and now I’m dealing with both sides of the fence,” said DeLorenzo, who has grown into his new role at the Fonda, N.Y. track. “Now that I’m almost to the end of the season, I’ve got a rhythm going.”
