Nick Hoffman claims Mountain Modified Championship
Nick Hoffman celebrated his 29th birthday in fine style as he made the most of his trip to Virginia’s Wythe Raceway on Saturday night. The North Carolina racer registered the $3,000 victory in the Mountain Modified Championship, which was co-sanctioned between the Brucebilt Performance Iron-Man Modified series and the Southeast Dirt Modified Series.
A third-place finish in his heat race positioned Hoffman fifth on the starting grid for the finale at the sprawling, 1/2-mile oval. Early in the race Nick worked his way forward into the front of the Top-5 and was up to second by lap 8.
The next few laps found the pilot of the No. 2 pursuing Blake Brown for the lead before racing to the top spot exiting turn four on lap 12. Nick went on to survive a bevy of restarts to race to the victory, which came over Blake Brown, Daniel Parker, Ricky Tinch, and Chris Arnold.
Hoffman’s sixth victory of the 2021 season also marked his second with the Iron-Man Modified Series.Back to News
