The series returns to action on Saturday at Highland (Ill.) Speedway
FARMER CITY, IL – July 9, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Ray Bollinger scored his second DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals victory in a week Friday night as he held off Mike Harrison to win at Farmer City (Ill.) Raceway.
Bollinger started on the feature pole but a fierce battle was underway right behind him between Harrison and Kenny Wallace who looked to hang on to their respective positions and challenge Bollinger for the lead.
As Bollinger pulled away and Harrison settled into second, Michael Long battled passed Wallace and worked to reel in Harrison.
Through traffic in the final laps, Bollinger had his hands full with Harrison right behind. It was Bollinger though who crossed the finish in first.
“Farmer City’s track, that was awesome,” Bollinger said. “That was great. That was a helluva lot of passing through the lapped cars there. I was so worried Harrison or Wallace was coming, I just kept praying for the end to come and we had it at the end.”
