LAKE ODESSA, MI – July 11, 2019 – Nick Hoffman “eight” ’em up as he charged to his eighth victory on the 2019 DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals tour Thursday night at I-96 Speedway. Hoffman, the 2016 champion, dominated the 25-lap Feature to collect $1,000. 

 

Hoffman’s Elite Racecar was dialed in perfectly for I-96, where he picked up his seventh overall checkered flag on the tour this year, one more victory than he had in his 2016 championship-winning season. He has 21 wins overall in his career on the DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals tour. Mike Harrison leads all-time win lists with nine victories in a single-season and 49 wins overall.

 

Curt Spalding, who won the tour’s opener at Kankakee County Speedway, returned to competition this week and finished second for the second night in a row.
