QUINCY, Ill. – If Nick Hoffman can even see the front of the field he’s going to be dangerous.

Sunday night at Quincy Raceways he earned the outside pole and powered past Elite Racecar teammate Tyler Nicely to win for the sixth time this year on the DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals tour.

Nicely started from the pole position and took the early lead for the 25-lap Feature, and he didn’t make it easy on Hoffman.

The two raced in an edge-of-your-seat, side-by-side battle for several laps until Hoffman edged ahead to once again park it once again in victory lane and increase his lead in the championship standings.

Nicely settled for second, followed by Dave Wietholder, Michael Long and Kenny Wallace.

The finish:

Nick Hoffman, Tyler Nicely, Dave Wietholder, Michael Long, Kenny Wallace, Will Krup, Hunt Gossum, Chris Spalding, Shaun Deering, Craig Spegal, Bill Roberts, Josh Newman, Dugan Thye, Ryan Meyer, Ben Huff, Kevin Blackburn, Ray Bollinger, Joey Gower, Spencer Havermale, Ronnie Yelton.
