After a few weeks off from official league racing, the DonutsDesigns.com Open Wheel Series returned to the track on Monday night for a 50-lap feature in the UMP Modified division.
Race Winner – Dillon Raffurty led every lap of the feature event, to pick up his 4th UMP Modified win of the season, and his 13th career SARA victory.
Race Summary – After a pair of early cautions, Raffurty jumped out into the lead on the lap 12 restart over Derek Robinson, as the two would begin to pull away from the rest of the field. Robinson was able to hang within a half-second behind the leader until a mistake with about 10 laps to go allowed Raffurty to escape the pressure and he would go on to pick up the victory by over 3.5 seconds.
Pole Winner – Time Trials were used to set the lineup for the feature, and Dillon Raffurty laid down a lap of 16.888 seconds for the top spot.
Hard Charger – Darrell Hamlin started outside the top ten in 12th and gained 5 positions on the night to finish 7th.
UMP Modified Title Fight – With his 4th win of the season, Raffurty holds a 34 point lead with one UMP Modified race left in the season.
Combined Points Title Fight – Derek Robinson’s runner-up finish keeps him on top of the overall combined points and leads by 15 points with two races left on the schedule.
Up Next – Next week, the final 360 Non-Wing Sprint race of the season will take place at Lanier with a 45-lap feature event.
