July 6, 2018 (Malta, NY) – Big Time Little Tim has won the Northeast Crate Nationals twice thus far and was looking to add to his KOD resume. He took the next step by claiming victory in the Friday Night Lights event, while two-time winner Connor Cleveland extended his Sportsman tour point lead.
Tim Hartman Jr. started sixth and worked his way up to leader Andrew Buff before making the winning pass. The current Albany Saratoga point leader never looked back once in the top spot and rolled to his 3rd KOD Sportsman victory, which includes two Northeast Crate Nationals titles.
Connor Cleveland, Robert Bublak Jr., James Meehan, Jake Scarborough, Chris Johnson, Dave Constantino, Jack Speshock, and Jeremy Pitts rounded out the top 10.
“It’s actually good we ran second for a while, because I was able to try a couple lines and see where Buff was running. Car was fast and everyone in our race did great. It’s not too often we go caution free. I want to thank Mike Parillo for everything he does for this team,” said a victorious Tim Hartman Jr.
