ATWOOD, TN — official release — Hunter Rasdon captures his first victory of the 2014 DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals season in dominating fashion, leading flag-to-flag and capturing the $1,500 checkered flag Thursday night at Clayhill Motorsports Park.
Rasdon, of Jonesboro, AR, would start the 25-lap main event at the front of the field, with Lucas Lee and Mike Harrison starting right behind him. Lee and Harrison, fresh off their battle for the victory at Clarksville Speedway Wednesday night, looked to carry on their battle from the previous night. Unfortunately for them, Rasdon spoiled their show.
Rasdon captured the lead on the opening lap and never looked back. Harrison had to battle his way to the front, where Lee was having trouble staying attached to Rasdon, who quickly separated himself from the field.
Rasdon led all 25 laps en route to capturing the victory over Lucas Lee and Mike Harrison, who completed a daring three-wide pass on Trent Young and Ken Schrader for the third position with a handful of laps remaining.
Harrison, Young, and Schrader rounded out the top five.
Heat race winners were Harrison and Lee.
The DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals joins the DIRTcar Summer Nationals on Friday night at Paducah International Raceway in Paducah, Ky.
