Race Recap
Weisser Beats Nicely After Clash with Lapped Traffic at Lincoln

Allen Weisser had led since the drop of the green with Tyler Nicely right on his heels. He crossed the stripe to take the white flag – surely, he could hold the DIRTcar national points leader off for one more lap. Or so he hoped.

Weisser, the DIRTcar UMP Modified ace from Peoria, IL, rolled through the middle of Lincoln Speedway with Nicely creeping to his inside through Turns 1-2. The lapped car of Casey Lappin also rolled through the middle groove directly ahead of the leaders and stayed out front as they entered Turn 3.

As Weisser pulled up to the rear bumper of Lappin entering Turn 3, Lappin opted for the middle groove like Weisser, leaving the door open down low for Nicely to take one final shot for the win.

Weisser stayed in the gas behind Lappin as Nicely pulled ahead slightly with a big run out of Turn 4. As Lappin came out of the corner, Weisser tagged his backside down the frontstretch, and Nicely made contact of his own with Lappin before the stripe, slowing his progress as Weisser snuck by on the outside and crossed the line first to score the win – the fifth of his DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals career.

“I didn’t know where to go,” Weisser said of his thoughts on the final lap. “I knew Nicely was gonna be right there. That lapped car was right there, and I just had to push this thing.


The Summit Modifieds will take Monday and Tuesday off while their Summer Nationals Late Model counterparts are racing in Springfield, MO, and pick the action back up Wednesday, June 28, at Adams County (IL) Speedway in Quincy, IL. Tickets will be available at the gate; streaming live at DIRTVision.com.
