Hoffman Wins Terre Haute Thriller

TERRE HAUTE, IN — Will Krup led the first 19 and a half laps of Friday night’s DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals Feature at the Terre Haute Action Track, but Nick Hoffman swung by on the outside coming off turn two on the final lap to earn his third third consecutive victory and fourth overall on the tour this summer.

Hoffman, of Mooresville, NC, chased Krup from the outset, but when the white flag flew Krup was dealing with traffic that allowed Hoffman to pick his way to the lead and hold off Krup to the checkers. Tyler Nicely was third with Hunt Gossum and David Stremme rounding out the top five.
