Wallace Captures DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Checkered Flag at Spoon River Speedway

 

CANTON, Ill. — June 19, 2013 —Defending DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals champion Kenny Wallace picked up his first victory of the 2013 tour on Wednesday night at Spoon River Speedway.

 

Wallace started on the outside of the front row and quickly charged to the front with Michael Long in pursuit at the 3/8-mile track. As the top five pulled away, Jake Griffin thrilled the crowd by wheeling his car around the cushion in an effort to run down Wallace and Long. Griffin’s efforts went for naught, though, when he slipped over the banking on the backstretch while running second with two laps to go.

 

Wallace held off Long for the $1,000 victory on a green-white-checkered finish, with Jeff Curl, Griffin and Allen Weisser rounding out the top five.

 

 

“We led the whole race but I could hear somebody was up top,” Wallace said. “My crew chief said go to the top, but I couldn’t go to the top because I didn’t have a half a lap up there. … We really needed this win because we’ve been struggling.”

 

 

There were 43 DIRTcar UMP Modifieds in the event.

 

Heat race winners included Bruce Erik, Ray Bollinger, Wallace and Curl.

 

The DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals continues at Belle-Clair Speedway in Belleville, Ill., on Thursday June 20.
