By Brendan Capria

 

CONCORD, N.C. – July 11, 2016 – Looking back into racing history, fans of the sport have readily-available statistics as to why drivers rise to greatness. For Mike Harrison however, it is the how that is difficult to overlook. Though Harrison has the numbers to stake his claim in DIRTcar Racing, the black-and-white numbers are not as lustrous as the color behind the paper.

 

In 2015, Harrison became the DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals champion, the DIRTcar UMP Modified National champion and Southern Illinois region champion in 2015. The Highland Creek, Ill., amassed 36 wins, 11 top-five and three top-ten finishes in 60 starts.

 

 

As the Summit Modified Nationals enters its final 2016 stretch, Harrison, sitting second in the championship standings, is poised to claim another title – his fifth. He is just three points out of the lead.

Wallace built the gap on Bollinger but as he worked to get around a lapped car, Wallace caught a tire on the bottom of the track and lost the lead with a damaged car.
