Nick Hoffman Scores in Oakshade Opener

Returns to Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals victory lane for the first time since July 5

WAUSEON, Ohio – July 15, 2016 – Nick Hoffman had some work to do in the opener of the first ever DIRT Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals double-header at Oakshade Raceway on Friday night as had to battle past a hard-charging Brian Ruhlman and Cory Daugherty to score his series-leading fifth win of the tour.

The current points leader started back in the field but made easy work of several of his competitors. Cory Daugherty put up a several lap fight but Hoffman battled around. Then he started to reel in Ruhlman as Ruhlman closed in on the tail of the field.

Through traffic, Ruhlman opened a lane on the bottom for Hoffman to get around. Ruhlman tried to run him back down but Hoffman held him off. Through the closing laps and a late restart, Hoffman continued to be the class of the field.

For Mike Harrison however, it is the how that is difficult to overlook. Though Harrison has the numbers to stake his claim in DIRTcar Racing, the black-and-white numbers are not as lustrous as the color behind the paper.
