Poel Captures Third DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals Victory at I-96 Speedway

 

By Jordan Morris

 

LAKE ODESSA, Mich. – June 22, 2014 – Jacob Poel continued his great start to the 2014 DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals, capturing his third win in six races on Sunday night at I-96 Speedway.

 

Poel came into the night sitting third in the point standings behind Matt Goulden and Jeff Curl, after missing the previous race at Tri-City Speedway. With Goulden and Curl not at I-96, Poel had a good shot at regaining some of the points he lost after missing the race two nights before.

 

Sunday consisted of two local stars, Poel of Spring Lake, Mich., and Chad Bauer, of Farewell, Mich., battling for the top spot early. Bauer secured the lead at the drop of the green-flag and led the opening four laps of the 25-lap main event, before Poel powered around him on lap 5.

 

Poel was too fast for Bauer to handle as he stretched out to a 2.15-second lead by the end of the race. Bauer’s car dropped back through the field after losing second to Travis Stemler, resulting in an eighth place finish. Poel led the remaining 21 laps en route to capturing the $1,000 checkered flag, his third in just two weeks of the six week-long tour.

 

Collin Thirlby, David Mielke, and Tim Stemler rounded out the top five.

Heat race winners included Poel, Bauer, and Joe Rokos.

The DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals continues on Monday night at Peoria Speedway in Peoria, Ill.
