Yetman Takes Pro Stock Feature

Yetman Conquers NAPA Super DIRT Week Pro Stock Championship Presented by Bacc-Off for Third Consecutive Year

 

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Oct. 11, 2015 - Polesitter Rob Yetman of Castleton, N.Y., powered to victory in the DIRTcar Pro Stock 25-lap feature presented by Bacc-Off on Sunday during NAPA Super DIRT Week at the New York State Fairgrounds.

 

Yetman’s third consecutive NAPA Super DIRT Week victory – a $2,000 triumph – was hotly contested by Francois Adam, of St. Pie, Quebec.

 

Adam was able to sneak ahead of Yetman on the white flag lap, but Yetman never relented and charged back on Adam's outside through turns one and two and used a lapped car as a pick off the second corner to regain command.

 

Adam fell short of hitting paydirt in his fifth career event appearance. His runner-up performance was his third consecutive top-five finish after placing fourth in 2013 and fifth in '14.

 

Glenn Forward of Morrisville, N.Y., the 2015 Utica-Rome Speedway Pro-Stock champion, finished third. Forward, who was the 2014 runner-up, started eighth on the grid.

 

Yetman drove the Lazzaro’s Auto Body/Prestige Sealcoating No. 7 for car owner Joe Lazzaro.

 

“He is always at his fastest here,” Adam said of Yetman. “I was able to catch and pass him, but the lapped cars were trouble for me. I got blocked in turns 1 and 2 and he got by me.”

 

Jay Corbin started ninth and placed fourth. Dave Bissonette completed the top five.
