“I’m so happy, when I was going to work this morning something told me that we would be here tonight. I can’t believe it. We were able to put everything together,” said Fulper post race.
Kory Fleming led the Vahlco Wheels Modified feature to the green flag and would lead the first five laps of the event before giving way to JR Fulper.
With Fulper out in front the man on the move in the early stages was Dakota Kessler racing up to second from his seventh place starting spot by lap eight.
The first yellow of the event flew on lap 11 when Eric Engstrom broke and veered into traffic, clipping Kessler severely damaging the right rear corner of his No. 449 and ending his promising night.
