HIGHLAND, IL – Another chapter in the big book of Mike Harrison’s dominance at Highland Speedway was written on Saturday night as he scored the 51st Summit Modified victory of his career over Ray Bollinger and Zach Schantz.
Harrison won his heat and redrew the pole for the 25-lap Feature, jetting out to an early lead that he would never relinquish. Lapped traffic was unable to slow the Highland-native’s pace as he led the field back to the checkers untouched for his sixth Feature win in Summit Modified action at Highland.
Coming into the night, Harrison said he felt a bit of added pressure to win with all the extra family and friends on hand for a special night they and the track dedicated in memory of their friend Brett Korves. Needless to say, he wanted this one bad.
“This, right here, this means everything,” Harrison said in Victory Lane. “It would have taken something for somebody to beat me in this race because I probably would have destroyed my car to win this race, to be honest with you.”
Bollinger and Schantz held onto their podium spots while Tyler Deibert and Jeff Leka rounded out the top-five.
The Summit Racing Equipment Modifieds next head to Moberly, MO, on Sunday for a debuting visit to the Randolph County Raceway. Catch all the action live on DIRTVision!
