Six for Siegelman at Freehold Saturday
Posted 13 days
Freehold Raceway’s leading driver, Austin Siegelman, got off to a slow start at the summer/fall meet. He didn’t win a race on opening weekend. However, he bounced back in a big way on Saturday (September 4), with six winners on the 13-race card.
Siegelman’s first win of the day came in race 3, when he guided Ultimate Flyer N to victory for trainer Mark Infante. He got back-to-back wins in race 4, as Van Diesel rallied up the inside to win for trainer Salvatore Sciarrino.
Siegelman completed the hat trick in race 8, as Bilbo Hanover scored for trainer Mike Watson. It was already a great day for Siegelman, but he was only halfway done.
In race 9, he got the grand slam, guiding Pro Beach to victory for trainer Ron Burke. He got win number five in the 12th race, as Gaius Crastinus, for owner/trainer John Novello, prevailed. Siegelman had one shot to get six wins, and he took full advantage, moving Frankie Boy first-over and drawing off to victory for owner/trainer Brandon Mongiello.
Through the first four days of the summer/fall season, Siegelman has seven winners from 37 drives. That places him in a tie with Dan Dube atop the driver standings. In 2021, Siegelman has 109 winners at Freehold, giving him a commanding lead in the overall standings.
Live racing resumes at Freehold on Friday (September 10), starting at about 12:30 PM.
