MORGANTOWN, KY – Nick Hoffman won the first-ever Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals visit to the Cedar Ridge Speedway on Friday night. Will Krup picked up the $6,000.00 payday to wrap up the weekend in Kentucky.
Friday night, Hoffman held off fast qualifier Tyler Nicely in the 30-lap, $1,500-to-win Feature. The current points leader led flag-to-flag to pick up the inaugural visit to the Cedar Ridge Speedway.
Saturday night was a picture-perfect night for Will Krup. The Illinois driver set Quick Time in qualifying, putting him on the pole of his Heat race. Krup won the Heat, sending him to the redraw and starting him in the second row, inside. Nicely led the race into one and two until he got lose on the exit of two. This allowed Krup to advance to the lead. Hoffman battled his way to the runner-up position, challenging Krup for the lead, but Krup had an excellent car on the top groove allowing him to pull away.
Krup becomes the 66th different winner with the DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals as he cashes the $6,000 payday to conclude the Hope for Harley weekend.
