Rob Yetman three-peats at Syracuse

SYRACUSE, N.Y.- October 11, 2015 – Polesitter Rob Yetman of Castleton, N.Y., won the DIRTcar NE Pro Stock 25-lap feature at the New York State Fairgrounds Sunday.

Yetman’s third straight 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 to lead lap 24, but Yetman stayed 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 straight 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.
