Gilpin Dominates DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals Main Event at Indiana’s Daugherty Speedway
BOSWELL, Ind. – July 1, 2015 – Devin Gilpin powered to his second DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals victory of the season, winning Wednesday night at Daugherty Speedway.
Gilpin, of Columbus, Ind., is the three-time and defending DIRTcar UMP Modified national champion and showed why he’s been so successful on Wednesday night. He jumped out to the lead in the first corner, survived two restarts, and never looked back en route to winning the 25-lapper worth $1,000.
“I knew I wanted to get to the top, I just wanted to make a good start and get to the top and get clear,” said Gilpin, who also finished seventh in the DIRTcar Summer Nationals late model feature. “My grandpa just had this thing dialed in tonight. I was undecided what to do with the tire. We had a little bit of tire wear in the heat and I didn’t know what tire to put on it. He put the perfect tire on. All the glory to my grandpa.”
Bob Pohlman, Joe Godsey, points-leader Tyler Nicely and and Tim Reynolds rounded out the top five.
