Nick Hoffman Scores in Oakshade Opener
Returns to Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals victory lane for the first time since July 5
WAUSEON, Ohio – July 15, 2016 – Nick Hoffman had some work to do in the opener of the first ever DIRT Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals double-header at Oakshade Raceway on Friday night as had to battle past a hard-charging Brian Ruhlman and Cory Daugherty to score his series-leading fifth win of the tour.
The current points leader started back in the field but made easy work of several of his competitors. Cory Daugherty put up a several lap fight but Hoffman battled around. Then he started to reel in Ruhlman as Ruhlman closed in on the tail of the field.
Through traffic, Ruhlman opened a lane on the bottom for Hoffman to get around. Ruhlman tried to run him back down but Hoffman held him off. Through the closing laps and a late restart, Hoffman continued to be the class of the field.
