DIRTcar Summer Nationals and DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals Kick-Off Final Dash to Checkers

SummerNationalsCONCORD, NC. July 15, 2014 2014 has proven to be a year to remember in the DIRTcar Summer Nationals and DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals. So far the six-week long tour has provided everything from broken records to photo finishes. Heres what to look forward to as both tours kick-off their final stretch of action with just four races remaining until championship night at Oakshade Raceway on July 19.

The DIRTcar Summer Nationals has seen its fair share of winners so far this year, with 11 different drivers claiming checkered flags. Two drivers have been the headline stealers as they continue their season-long battle for the top spot on the DIRTcar Summer Nationals all-time wins list. Billy Moyer currently holds the top spot on the list with 88 career wins just one ahead of Shannon Babb who scored his 87th career victory Sunday night at Vermilion County Speedway. Moyer has a series-leading six wins, including four of his last five starts, followed by Babb who has four wins, as the two drivers have combined to dominate series action this past week.

As the two continue their back-and-forth battle for career wins, the three-time series champion Babb continues to sit atop the 2014 DIRTcar Summer Nationals championship standings. Babb holds a 41-point margin over Ryan Unzicker, as he looks to claim the $25,000 championship prize and become just the second driver to claim at least four series titles.

The DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals also has a back-and-forth battle currently taking place, as championship-leader Mike Harrison and second-place Jacob Poel continue their season-long battle for victories. Poel holds the upper hand after capturing his seventh victory of the season on Sunday night at Vermilion County Speedway. Harrison, who has six wins this season, hasnt visited victory lane since July 3 at LaSalle Speedway after winning five-out-of-seven events, including three-in-a-row, at the end of June and beginning of July.

In the tightest points battle in series history, Harrison clings to a very slim six-point advantage over Poel for the top spot in the standings. Poel has been red-hot as-of-late, capturing two of the last three races, as he continues to turn up the heat on the points leader with just four races remaining before the $15,000 championship title will be handed out.

Both series take a couple of days off to prepare for the final dash to championship night at Oakshade Raceway on July 19. Racing resumes on Wednesday at Atomic Speedway in Chilliclothe, Ohio for whats sure to be another action-packed night as 2014 continues to be a year to remember in DIRTcar history.
