At Elkins, on Friday night, the Modifieds were in the spotlight as they battled for a $1,000 winners check.
Jared Hawkins (subbing for his younger brother Jacob, who usually drives the Throw ‘N Dirt house car) and Dave Defibaugh grabbed the prelim honors.
When the race was restarted, Defibaugh blasted to the lead with Hawkins, Brent Trimble, Deana Groves and Robert Smith following him. With two go-a-rounds left, Defibaugh’s right rear tire began to go down, but he held on for his second win of the season. Hawkins, Trimble, Groves and Phil Jeffries rounded out the top five.
