Race Recap: Hoffman Scores Feature Win #11 at Thunderbird

MUSKEGON, MI – Last year, Nick Hoffman set a new DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals record for most Feature wins in a single season at 13, driving his own personal Elite Chassis #2. This year, behind the wheel of NASCAR veteran Justin Allgaier’s #7, he’s got a chance to break it.

After another dominating victory Thursday night at Thunderbird Speedway, Hoffman is now two wins away from tying his own record and three away from breaking it with just four races remaining.

The Thrill from Mooresville was challenged early in Thursday’s Feature event by West Virginian KC Burdette, who led the opening three circuits before Hoffman took the spot away on the low side.

In a caution-free race, Hoffman ran away with the victory untouched for his 37th career Summit Modified victory and 11th of the season.

As he’s said so many times before, Hoffman loves the slick racing surfaces to race on, which was exactly what he got Thursday night.

“When I go to bed, I dream of racetracks like this – just polished-off and slick,” Hoffman said. “This thing is just perfect when it gets like this.

“You could maneuver anywhere, at least I could. I could run the top and pass them lapped cars wherever I needed to and didn’t really get held up by them.”

UP NEXT

Hoffman continues his quest for the wins record against the rest of the Summit Modified field Friday night, Aug. 21 in the tour debut at Tri-City Motor Speedway in Auburn, MI. Catch every lap of action live on DIRTVision presented by Drydene.
