Over the past few months, Austin Siegelman has emerged as the top driver at Freehold Raceway. After finishing fifth in the standings in 2019, Siegelman looked to build on his performance in 2020.
During Freehold’s Summer-Fall meet, Siegelman took off. He won 71 races from 331 drives in that stretch, the most of any driver by 23 wins, according to a press release from the harness track.
Perhaps his best stretch came between Nov. 27 and Dec. 4, when he won 13 races over three race days. He won at least four races eight times during the summer-fall portion of the season.
Eric Abbatiello finished second in the race, with 45 wins. Jim Marohn Jr was third with 43 wins, followed by Vinny Ginsburg in fourth, with 37 victories.
In the training department, Paul Fusco led the way among trainers during the meet. He won 18 races from 131 starters. Brandon Mongiello was second with 16 victories, Bill MacKenzie was third with 15 triumphs, according to the press release.
