Marohn also won race 6 with Don Maiorano’s Latoka, keeping him in the pocket and powering up the passing lane in the stretch.
Fusco had a training hat trick on the card. In addition to his wins with Marohn, he won race 6 with Fear My Shadow. Jim Marshall III was the winning driver on that one.
For Marohn, he’s now won 39 races on the calendar year at Freehold from 169 starts.That’s good for seventh in the driver standings. His winning percentage of 23% is the second-most among drivers with at least 100 drives at Freehold this year.
