KANKAKEE, Ill. – June 13, 2014 – After a disappointing 18th-place finish Thursday at Kankakee County Speedway, Jacob Poel rebounded in a big way on Friday night by claiming his first victory of this season’s DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals.
Jamie Lomax, of Lake Village, Ind., started the race from the pole position after winning the first heat race, but Poel, rallying from his third-place starting position, reeled in the leader quickly and moved to the point. Poel, of Spring Lake, Mich., stretched his lead to four seconds, dominating the race and capturing the $1,500 checkered flag.
With third-place finishes on Thursday and Friday, Kenny Wallace claimed the overall River City Shootout title for this week’s races at Kankakee County Speedway.
Wallace, Steven Brooks and Nick Allen rounded out the top five.
Heat race winners included Jamie Lomax, Devin Wright and Jacob Poel
The DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals continues on Wednesday, June 18, at Spoon River Speedway in Canton, Ill.
