BARBERVILLE, Fla. — Ty Dillon motored his way to victory lane for second consecutive night during UMP modified competition during the DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park Saturday, putting himself in prime position for a shot at Monday’s Gator Championship.
In the 20-lap feature, which was one of two qualifying races for Monday night’s Gator Championship, Dillon couldn’t be touched. As he was in control out front, a wild battle behind him broke out as six cars battled for the fifth position, guaranteeing them a shot at the pole on Monday night’s random draw. Brian Ruhlman, Nick Hoffman, Devin Gilpin and Kyle Strickler eventually rounded out the top five and will join Dillon plus the top five finishers from Sunday night’s feature in the draw for positions on Monday.
“You always want to keep going because the second you slack up, there’s some good drivers here and they’ll pounce on you,” Dillon said. “If we can keep chugging along like this, we want to get that big Gator and then we’ll have an awesome weekend. I’m as tickled as I can be right now with getting two wins this week. It’s a lot of fun for us.”
