This time the Carpentersville, IL driver used the same move in Turns 3 and 4 to take the lead from Jason Feger and drive away with the $20,000 payday. Erb went unchallenged in the final 27 laps to best the World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Models and DIRTcar Summer …Read More »
Lucas Lee captures Modified Nationals win at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 after engine failure leaves Hoffman one lap short of victory!
RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME: Lee Inherits Lead After Hoffman Breaks to Win STL Firecracker Faceoff Finale at I-55 June 25th, 2022 – White flag. Nick Hoffman with a near two-second lead. And suddenly, the car shut off. The four-time and defending champion appeared to be on his way to a dominating eighth DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals victory of the season Saturday night when his NOS Energy Drink #2 lost power going down the backstretch coming to the checkers and brought out caution. Under yellow, now coasted past the start/finish line, his lifeless car was pushed back to the pit area, surrendering the lead to second-place Lucas Lee before a green-white-checkered restart to settle the race. Lee took off at the drop of the green and brought it home for his fifth career Summit Modified victory in the St. Louis Firecracker Faceoff finale at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at …Read More »
ULTIMATE OPPORTUNIST: Erb Scores Night 1 of St. Louis Firecracker Faceoff The Carpentersville, IL driver passed Billy Moyer Jr. with 12 Laps to go to earn his third World of Outlaws Triumph of 2022 PEVELY, MO – JUNE 24, 2022 – A second chance isn’t something that slips away from Dennis Erb Jr. However, the veteran Late Model driver needed that second chance Friday at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 after a caution negated his pass for the lead. Erb found another opportunity to strike 18 laps later, as race leader Billy Moyer Jr. caught the tail of the field. That’s when Erb dove to the bottom, splitting Kye Blight’s car as Moyer tried to pass him on the outside. Erb took the advantage, thundering past both of them with momentum to take the lead with 12 laps to go. This time, a caution wouldn’t get in Erb’s way …Read More »

DESTROYED IT: Conoyer Wins at I-55, Snaps Hoffman’s Win Streak PEVELY, MO – June 24, 2022 – Rick Conoyer has competed all season long at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 but had yet to go to Victory Lane. That was, until Friday night, when he led every lap of the DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals Feature, collecting his second career victory with the tour and snapping four-time and defending champion Nick Hoffman’s perfect season. “To beat those guys, it’s phenomenal,” Conoyer said. Prior to Friday night, The Destroyer had only one other Summit Modified victory in his career – June 30, 2018, right at I-55. Nearly four years in the making, and the Wentzville, MO-native drives back to Victory Lane in the biggest way, defeating the most stacked field of DIRTcar UMP Modifieds the track has hosted all year. The race was 25 laps, but it seemed like …Read More »
