POTSDAM, NY – August 3, 2017 – The busiest part of Mike Maresca’s 2017 schedule continues to roll along at full steam and the Potsdam, NY based driver is building momentum entering the month of August. Maresca capped a stretch of five races in eight days with a sixth-place finish in the Jack Johnson Tribute race at Fonda Speedway on Wednesday night.

Maresca’s sixth-place finish was his best Big-Block Modified result of the week and his seventh top-10 of the season. After a challenging trip to Quebec last week with the Super DIRTcar Sereis where he finished 26th on back-to-back nights at autodromes Granby and Drummond, Maresca bounced back with a third-place finish in 358 Modified action last Friday at Mohawk International Raceway. It was his best result in Small-Block Modified action so far this season. Maresca also suffered problems last Saturday night at Fonda and finished eighth in weekly competition.

A new stretch of four races in five nights begins this week for Maresca as he heads to Mohawk and Fonda for weekly action on Friday, August 4 and Saturday, August 5, respectively. Then he’ll travel west for a pair of Super DIRTcar Series races in the Niagara Region at Merrittville Speedway in Thorold, Ont. on Monday, August 7 before a stop at Ransomville Speedway in Ransomville, NY on Tuesday, August 8.
