“We’re doing pretty well right now, but the goal is to just keep finishing races,” said Sweet. “If the race goes smoothly, we usually are able to move up and finish in the Top 10.”
Sweet has ten Top 10 finishes in a dozen events this season, including a pair of feature victories. His only missteps were an 18th-place result in early July, and when he failed to qualify his Fortier’s Community Care Home/SymQuest Group Chevrolet for the main event on June 28. As the Sportsman division routinely sees 40 or more cars attempting to qualify for 26 starting positions, only two drivers – feature winner Tom Therrien of Hinesburg and former NAPA Sportsman champion Joe Steffen of Essex Junction – have made all 12 feature races this year.
