Nicely Dominates Paducah for Back-to-Back Summit Modified Wins

Tyler Nicely has gone back-to-back with the DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals.

Nicely, 27, of Owensboro, KY, put on a clinic Friday night at Paducah International Raceway, leading all 20 circuits around the big, 3/8-mile oval and holding off close challengers Lucas Lee and Kenny Wallace to score his third Summit Modified win of the season and eighth of his career.

“On that long green flag run, the motor started getting a little warm,” Nicely said. “I just tried to take care of my motor and not do anything stupid.”


The DIRTcar Summit Modifieds next visit the Clarksville Speedway in Clarksville, TN, on Saturday, July 1. Tickets will be on sale at the gate. If you can’t be at the track, stream every lap live on DIRTVision.
