The Pinconning, Mich., driver used an outside front row starting spot to put him in position to capitalize on Brian Shirley’s engine woes early in the 40-lap main event.  Van Wormer would never look back to claim his fourth DIRTcar Summer Nationals victory of 2010 worth $5,000.

 

 

Current series point leader Jason Feger of Bloomington, Ill., climbed from eighth to finish second behind Van Wormer but will extend his point lead over defending Summer Nationals Champion Dennis Erb Jr. of Carpentersville, Ill.,  who settled for a seventh place finish on the night.

ATTICA, OH — July 15, 2010 — The miles, the sweat, the frustration and the jubilation that comes with surviving the DIRTcar Summer Nationals Hell Tour will culminate Friday and Saturday with the championship weekend in Ohio.

This tour featuring DIRTcar Late Models is a month-long test of endurance, a test of patience and a test of wills. Simply making it to all 29 scheduled events in 32 days is a true measure of resilience. Making it to the final checkered flag and knowing you have a shot at winning the championship adds so much more pressure to crews and equipment worn thin by night-after-night of abuse on dirt tracks throughout the Midwest.
