Dirt Night – Midgets – Race 6 – August 13, 2018 – Lanier National Speedway
The 2018 Summer Season for Dirt Night came to an end on Monday night as the Midgets wrapped up their season at Lanier with a 50-lap A-Main. Entering the night, Jarrid Boiros and Clay Snider went into the night tied atop the points standings.
Race Summary – At the drop of the green flag, Jarrid Boiros made the first move and took the lead from the outside groove, but quickly Clay Snider was up into the runner-up spot and it looked like the two would battle all night long for the title. Snider was able to keep pace with Boiros for most of the race, and nearly took the lead away around halfway, but Boiros was able to hold him off. A late restart setup a mad dash to the finish and Boiros held off the field behind him and went on to lead every lap on his way to victory, and the championship.
