PEORIA, Ill. – June 23, 2015 – Mike Harrison fought off Dave Wietholder on a restart Tuesday night at Peoria Speedway and drove to his second DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals victory in the past three races.

Harrison, of Highland, Ill., got the jump on the initial green flag and was pulling away from Justin Allgaier when a caution bunched the field on lap 12. Wietholder charged to the inside of Harrison on the restart, but Harrison was too strong on the top and powered his way to the 25-lap, $1,000 victory.

“This car has just been phenomenal,” said Harrison, who has won two of the three races he’s entered on this year’s tour. “I can’t ask for anything better. Me, the car, the motor, we’re all just clicking. That’s what it takes, the whole deal.”

Wietholder, Allgaier, Nick Hoffman and A.J. May rounded out the top five.

The DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals is back in action on Wednesday night at Belle-Clair Speedway. A driver’s best eight finishes count toward the championship, and through seven completed events Tyler Nicely is atop the points lead.
