Nick Hoffman continued his DIRTcar Summit Modified Nationals domination with Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 victory!

Nick Hoffman
For the second consecutive season, Nick Hoffman has now eclipsed the eight-win mark in Feature racing action with the DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals.

Only a driver’s eight-best finishes are taken into consideration for the overall points standings; Hoffman’s eight best will now all be wins in his quest for a third Summit Modified championship.

Another dominant, flag-to-flag victory for the Mooresville, NC-driver came on Saturday night at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55, as he drove the Federated Auto Parts Elite Chassis #7 to victory for his third Summit Modified victory in five days.

“I spent a lot of nights up in these grandstands watching my dad win, and I stood right there as a junior flagman,” Hoffman recalled in Victory Lane about his aspirations as a young race fan. “It’s really cool to come back here and put the Federated Auto Parts car in Victory Lane at Federated Auto Parts Raceway.”

Jumping to the lead right from the drop of the green, Hoffman held off the early challenges from one of his own customers at Elite Chassis, Will Krup. Krup displayed a very well-handling hot rod early, but Hoffman was just too strong.

He led the field around through several cautions and restarts, even a red flag at one point. It just didn’t seem to matter what he got thrown at him, Hoffman was not going to be denied Saturday night.
