Rain, Stewart Friesen and David Schilling made headlines in the recent STSS swing through Fla.’s All-Tech Raceway. Friesen, of Sprakers, N.Y., won for a series-leading 37th time, while East Greenbush, N.Y.’s Schilling broke through for his first, the 38th different driver to win with the STSS. Heavy precipitation unfortunately wiped out the final two nights in Florida.
