Kenny Wallace Knocks Down Peoria Win
The series returns to action on Thursday at Macon Speedway
PEORIA, Ill. – July 6, 2016 – Kenny Wallace dominated Wednesday night’s DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals at Peoria Speedway as he claimed his first win of the season and became the ninth different driver to stand in victory lane.
Wallace started on the front row with reigning series champion Mike Harrison, but quickly jumped out to the lead. Very quickly he had to contend with a charging Levi Kissinger. A caution came out with 10 laps to go which added Harrison back into the mix.
Through the remaining laps, Harrison fought Kissinger for second as Wallace worked to hang on to the lead. Ultimately it was Wallace across the line in first with Kissinger in second and Harrison in third.
“I can tell you this, the reason I run the Summer Nationals is for these trophies,” Wallace said in victory lane. “When we had that caution, I heard (Kissinger) was in second. I watched him at Brownstown and he rolled the bottom really good. I knew I had to hit my marks.”
