Horsepower Happenings Speedweeks 411 - Week 2, Tuesday

Updated: Feb 13

Despite the entire Florida campaign not accumulating points toward the overall Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 championship, if Florida results could give any indication on how the 2020 All Star title chase will unfold, Clute, Texas’ Aaron Reutzel is a surefire favorite to earn the $65,000 top prize, ultimately increasing his consecutive championship run to three.

Picking up right where he left off in last year’s DIRTcar Nationals presented by Bozard Ford, Brandon Sheppard ran away with Monday night’s DIRTcar Late Model Feature for his fifth consecutive victory at Volusia Speedway Park.

The defending Dirt Late Model Big Gator champion stole the lead from polesitter Tim McCreadie at the drop of the green and never looked back, leading all 30 laps en route to his sixth victory at Volusia in the past seven DIRTcar Nationals Late Model Features.

The DIRTcar UMP Modifieds concluded their week-long battle at the 49th DIRTcar Nationals presented by Bozard Ford with the $5,000-to-win Big Gator Championship, before crowning the 2020 DIRTcar Nationals Champion.  A thrilling last-lap pass for the win by Spencer Hughes, scored the 19-year-old his first-ever Big Gator, while Nick Hoffman took home his fifth straight DIRTcar Nationals championship.
