HEARN ADDS TWO CHAMPIONSHIPS TO HIS RESUME
Wins point titles at Albany-Saratoga Speedway and Lebanon Valley Speedway
SUSSEX, NJ (September 1)……..All-time winning dirt track Modified driver Brett Hearn, of Sussex, New Jersey, captured two more track point championships in this his 39th season of professional-level racing. Hearn won the Albany-Saratoga Speedway (Malta, New York) Modified championship for the sixth time and the Lebanon Valley Speedway (West Lebanon, New York) Modified title for the eighth time.
“From the beginning, it’s been about winning races and championships,” said Hearn, 55, from his team shop in Sussex, New Jersey. “Our goal has always been to be the best team in dirt track Modified racing.”
Hearn was only 19 in 1977 when he won his first two speedway championships—in the then Sportsman divisions at Nazareth (Pennsylvania) Raceway and Orange County Fair Speed-way (Middletown, New York). Since then, he’s gone on to take top honors in a total of 80 track and series championships.
And along the way, Hearn has won 834 feature event races, including 343 in extra-distance, extra-purse races of 50 laps or more. Hearn’s racing record includes victories at 49 different speedways in 11 states and two Canadian provinces.
In the remaining months of the 2013 racing season, Hearn will be out to win the big end-of-year races and the overall Mr. DIRTcar Modified championship, a title he’s won seven previous times.
During the current Northeast dirt track racing season, Hearn has driven his familiar No. 20 Big- and Small-Block Modifieds fielded by the merged Madsen Motorsports/B.H. Racing Enterprises, Inc. team. Support for the No. 20 Modifieds comes from Madsen Overhead Doors, Benjamin Moore Paints, Foxhill Campground, Don Kruger Motorsports LLC, WLR Construction, 417 Bus Line Ltd, Accurate Collision, Steve Hough Motors, JMMB, and Fairways of Halfmoon. As in past seasons, Hearn relies on Teo Pro Car chassis and Enders Racing Engines. Two-dozen product associates rounded out Hearn’s continued quest for Modified racing supremacy.
