HAUBSTADT, Ind. – July 5, 2015 – Dustin Beck outlasted a 41-car field on Sunday night at Tri-State Speedway for his first DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals victory.
Beck, of Petersburg, Ind., hit his marks in every corner and survived three restarts on the quarter-mile dirt oval to hold off Stephen Schnapf and Zach Fair in the 25-lap feature, collecting $1,000 for his victory.
Mike Harrison, the three-time series champion and current points leader, surged from ninth to fourth with Josh Harris rounding out the top five.
“Our car was going away from me a little bit, I had to adjust my entry and I was hoping I wouldn’t have a déjà vu of what happened the last time I was leading on the last lap,” Beck said. “I’m glad we could pull it through, we’ve had a fast car all year long but it’s the first victory for the season.”
The DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals tour rolls into Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., on Sunday and then heads Monday to Lincoln (Ill.) Speedway, which was rained out on June 28.
