FREMONT, Ohio – The pressure of owning your own sprint car team, doing most of the mechanical work, driving the tow rig and then the race car can take its toll. Greg Wilson was beginning to wonder if he could still win.
Teaming up with the Seeling Motorsports team and longtime crew chief Andy Potter late this summer has rejuvenated the Benton Ridge, Ohio, driver and this weekend the results proved Greg Wilson can still drive and win in a sprint car.
Wilson took the lead on the white flag lap of the Ti22 Performance FAST on Dirt 410 A-main at Fremont Speedway and drove to his 13th career win at the third-mile track. For Wilson it was a weekend sweep of the FAST series as he won Friday as well.
Nate Dussel finished second, with D.J. Foos, Cale Conley and Cole Macedo rounding out the top five.
“This is choking me up. Fremont’s like home. We’ve had a lot of support from the fans not only here but when we’ve been out on the road…this is just awesome. I can’t thank Hercules Tire, Ohio Logistics, DNC Hydraulics enough for sticking with me and Joe and Diane Seeling giving an old washed up guy a chance to drive a race car and take some pressure off. Andy Potter is making me look good…we got good communications,” Wilson explained.
Jamie Miller ended a nearly two-year drought with a victory in the 305 sprint car feature, while Thomas Meseraull won the BOSS non-winged sprint car feature.
