The weekly award showcases a driver or team that exhibits outstanding effort and performance during a Friday Night Excitement weekly event at Ohsweken Speedway.
Friday, June 1 was the APC Auto Parts Centres event for Friday Night Excitement at Ohsweken. After finishing third in his Heat, Iftody started in the 17th position for the 15-lap Feature. Wheeling his way through the pack, Iftody was in fifth position by a lap nine caution.
There was plenty of side-by-side racing with several drivers battling for the lead, A late caution at lap 12 and a strong final restart found Iftody in first place. Although he drifted up the track on the final lap, he was able to hang on for his very first podium finish over Dave Crumbie, Jonathan Ayrton, Nick Masi and Gillian Hills in the Mini Stock Feature. Congratulations to Sean Iftody and the No. 15 HRW Automotive Mini Stock Team on your first win
