Race1.us Dirt Night presented by JB Trucking – Dirt Pro Late Models – Round 11 – March April 29, 2019 – Limaland Motorsports Park
For the final race of the season, the series rolled into Limaland for the second time, this time for 100 laps to crown a new series champion.
Race Summary – Matt Rolfe was inverted to the front of the field and led the opening 11 laps before allowing Dante Curtis to use the high side to take over on lap 12. Devon Morgan, the points leader, eventually followed Curtis up into the second spot, and the two would duel it our for the rest of the night. Morgan threw a couple of sliders, but Curtis would make the crossover to hang on, but a timely slide as the caution came out on lap 58 had Morgan out in front. From there, Morgan looked to be on his way to victory, but a mistake with just 10 laps to go resulted in Curtis getting back out in front. One final restart setup a 1 lap dash to the finish, and Curtis was able to capitalize and held off Morgan and the field to pick up his 2nd career SARA victory.
