Inside Line Promotions – ORRVILLE, Ohio (Sept. 19, 2022) – Greg Wilson captured his third feature triumph of the season a week ago Saturday at Fremont Speedway.
Wilson guided the Hercules Tires, Ohio Logistics and DNC Hydraulics backed Seeling Motorsports sprint car to quick time during qualifying to kick off the action at the dirt oval in Fremont, Ohio.
“We’ve been struggling over the past month and a half,” he said. “I felt like after Sharon a couple of weeks ago we were doing some things back the way we were when it was going well. It makes it easier when you roll into a place you are confident at. Plus, everything went our way. We drew good and put the whole night together from start to finish. The win was cool, but to be quick time meant as much to me because that’s not our strong suit or something we’ve done lately.”
Wilson advanced from fourth to second place in a heat race to advance into the feature redraw.
“By running second in the heat that put us in the redraw and we drew the No. 2,” he said. “Zeth Sabo drove a really good race. I felt there were times he was better than us. Traffic played into our favor as the race wore on and being patient was key. Once we got the lead with about nine laps to go I felt I could set a better pace because he was running parts of the line I wanted to run.”
The victory was Wilson’s 16th career at Fremont Speedway.
The team ventured to Wayne County Speedway last Saturday for the Pete Jacobs Memorial. Wilson timed in 14th quickest, placed fifth in a heat race and hustled from 14th to sixth in the A Main.
“The track probably was a little better than what it normally is,” he said. “It had more moisture in it and was really smooth. They did a great job. It was one of the cooler nights we’ve had in a while and the moisture came back through it. It was really fast all night and made it hard to pass. In the feature it was more of staying out of trouble and making sure you finished the race. I think we were a seventh to ninth-place car and we ended up sixth so all in all it was a good night.”
Wilson will race this Friday and Saturday at Eldora Speedway near Rossburg, Ohio, during the BeFour the Crowns Showdown featuring the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and the 4 Crown Nationals with Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions.
