SUSQUEHANA, PA – The Dirt Modified Nostalgia Tour got it’s 2020 season rolling this past Friday here at Penn Can Speedway.
The 15 lap Nostalgia and Modified combined feature would see brothers Chip and Scott Gauthier battle for the race lead for the majority of the race. Behind them George Palmer would have his hands full with Steve Longo eventually taking the position for third overall.
Over in the brand new Unlimited class Mike Houghtaling would make it interesting for a few laps but veteran racer John Flach would assume command by the second lap and power on to the win. The pair would be followed to the line by Dwayne Hiller.
Pit notes….a lot of first time faces in the series, Alan McDonald, Flach, Hiller, Turner and Houghtaling…Mike & Jay Garris both unable to start the features with mechanical issues…Steve Longo taking his legal Modified up into the Unlimited class for the double dip.
