Richie Crane Scores First-Career DIRTcar Pro Stock Series Victory Saturday At Albany-Saratoga

Story By: MICHELINA FRISS / DIRTCAR – MALTA, NY – Richie Crane bested a stout field of DIRTcar Pro Stock drivers to claim his first Series win at Albany-Saratoga Speedway during the Malta Massive Weekend Saturday night.

Crane mastered the bottom line around the 3/8-mile track to hold off recent Series winner Nick Stone and claim the victory in the 30-lap event – the sixth Series race of the 2022 season.

“I knew I had a good group behind me,” Crane said. “They’re tough to beat. But I knew I had a good race car. I knew I had to get a good restart, these guys behind me are really good. I beat the best tonight.

“I’m lucky this is my home track, so to have these fans here, I can’t say enough.”

Behind Crane was Stone in second, Rob Yetman in third, Jason Casey in fourth and Josh Coonradt rounded out the top-five.
