Krup & Strickler Split North Florida Modified Races


LAKE CITY, Fla. – Will Krup and Kyle Strickler split a pair of UMP Modified features on Saturday night at North Florida Speedway.

Krup won the first feature, which was previously postponed on Friday and rescheduled for Saturday. Krup started from the pole and survived three early caution periods and a late challenge from Curt Myers to earn the $1,000 victory.

Strickler finished second in the 25-lap makeup feature, followed by Myers, Mavrick Varnadore and Tyler Nicely.

In Saturday’s regularly scheduled feature, Strickler started seventh but marched his way through the field during the 30-lap main event.

A pair of early caution periods allowed Strickler to make up ground and following a caution on lap three he moved into the race lead. Jason Garver made multiple attempts to take the lead from Strickler, but he wasn’t able to get the job done as Strickler took home the $1,500 win.

Garver settled for second in the 30-lap main event ahead of Nick Hoffman, Michael Long and Zeke McKenzie.
