Story By: TOBY LAGRANGE / GLEN RIDGE MOTORSPORTS PARK – FULTONVILLE, NY – Sunday night at the Glen Ridge Motorsports Park Lance Willix proved that patience definitely pays off.
The Theresa, New York veteran campaigner picked up the win in the nights DIRTcar 358 Modified feature event and did so after running in the second position for most of the event.
Current points leader Jordan McCreadie took control of the race lead early on and held the top spot until a flat right rear tire brought him to a stop in turn one. On the restart Bill August would take over the lead. August held off Willix for nearly 20 laps before giving way to the north country driver.
On the final lap Willix had troubles with a lapped car which allowed August to get along side. The duo battled to the checkers with Willix narrowly holding on for the win. August finished second with Brian Calabrese third, McCreadie fourth and C.J. Castelletti fifth.
Andre Buff picked up the win in the DIRTcar Sportsman Championship Series event. For more information, please see the DIRTcar press release.
