Sterrett & Humphrey Claim Terre Haute Wins
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – June 7, 2015 – Bradley Sterrett slid past Tyler Nicely seven laps into Sunday night’s DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals main event at Terre Haute Action Track and drove away to the checkered flag for his first victory of the 2015 tour.
Sterrett, of Bloomington, IN, pocketed $1,000, needing only to keep Nicely behind him on a restart with four to go in the 20-lap feature at the half-mile dirt oval. Saturday’s winner, Josh Harris, was third with Ken Schrader and Dave Baldwin rounding out the top five. There were 23 cars entered in the event.
The DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals returns to action with the Wednesday-Thursday (June 10-11) doubleheader at Kankakee (Ill.) County Speedway.
Also on hand was the Pro Late Model class. It was the first time that UMP had sanctioned a Pro Late Model race at the facility. Bloomington, IN driver Jake Humphrey took the lead on the start with Bobby Regot moving into second. Regot followed closely and made a bid over the last couple of laps. On the final circuit, Regot drove hard to the outside lane but couldn’t get enough bite to make it work. Remington Gill, Scott Plew, and Andy Scoles completed the top five.
Additional money was added to the purse by Peter Massoni from California. Massoni always wanted to help out by donating at a race and was in Indiana on a racetrack tour. He attended an event at the Indianapolis Speedrome on Saturday and Terre Haute on Sunday. His home track is Silver Dollar Speedway in beautiful Chico, CA. Part of Massoni’s gift went to Sterrett, which made the winner share $1,250 and the other was added into the middle of the Pro Late Model purse.
A busy month of July is up next for the Terre Haute Action Track. The USAC Silver Crown cars and UMP Modifieds will be running on Thursday, July 2. Then during Sprint Week, the USAC Sprint Cars will be running on Wednesday, July 15 along with the UMP Modifieds.
