BARBERVILLE, Fla. — Kyle Bronson edged Ty Dillon during the DIRTcar Nationals presented by Summit Racing Equipment on Thursday night at Volusia Speedway Park.

As the early leaders in the 20-lap DIRTcar UMP Modified feature found trouble, Bronson kept pushing to the front, eventually moving to the high side of the half-mile oval and edging NASCAR Nationwide driver Ty Dillon by 0.28 at the checkered flag.

“He went with a harder tire and I figured they would be better on the longer runs, but I think my softer tire worked better on the shorter run,” said Bronson, of Brandon, Fla. “Everybody acts like they’ve been given everything, but I’ve raced with them and they’re the best in the business, they should have been in NASCAR a long time ago.”

The finish:
Kyle Bronson, Ty Dillon, Matt Westfall, Austin Dillon, Justin Allgaier, Brian Ruhlman, Billy Workman Jr., Nate Zimmer, Paul Miles, Kenny Wallace, Collin Thirlby, Devin Gilpin, Kody Weisner, Kyle Strickler, Austin Arneson, Tyler Nicely, Jeff Babcock, Kenny Schrader, Kent Robinson, Nick Hoffman, Bryce Jewell, Dwight Niehoff, Dale Mathison, Garret Stewart.
