Bollinger Scores Victory Over Massive Field at Lincoln Speedway

 

LINCOLN, Ill. June 30, 2013 Illinois native Ray Bollinger took advantage of leader Justin Allgaier’s mid-race spin to capture a home-state win Sunday night at Lincoln Speedway during the 13th-leg of the 2013 Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals at Lincoln Speedway.

 

With a massive field of 59 DIRTcar UMP Modifieds at the quarter-mile oval, each chasing the $2,000 checkered flag, it was almost guaranteed to be a shootout. Bollinger, of Kewaee, Ill., started the A-main from the outside of the front row, with NASCAR Nationwide Series regular Allgaier on the pole. Allgaier led for the first half of the race before things quickly changed when Allgaier spun, turning over the lead to second-place-running Bollinger. The wreck destroyed the driver’s side of Bollinger’s car but that didn’t slow him down as he dominated the remainder of the race, capturing the $2,000 purse over Brian Lynn.

 

“I was getting a good run on (Allgaier) in turns 3 and 4, he was kind of messing up and getting tight through the corner,” said Bollinger, the current DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals points leader. “He kind of stood on it, getting it pinched down, and ended up spinning out. I couldn’t believe my eyes when he came off the corner and the yellow came out.”

 

 

Tyler Nicely, Rusty Griffaw and Allen Weisser rounded out the top five.

 

Heat race winners included Brian Lynn, Tyler Nicely, Rusty Griffaw, Justin Allgaier and Erik Bruce.

 

The DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals continues Tuesday night at Quincy Raceways located in Quincy, Illinois.
