What won the race: Scoring his biggest open-competition engine victory, polesitter Jeremiah Hurst of Dubuque, Iowa, led 40 laps Friday at Peoria Speedway for a $5,000 Ryan Barker Memorial victory. Hurst’s win was a non-points triumph on the DIRTcar Summer Nationals.
Key notes: Hurst was emotional in victory lane in remembering his father who is battling cancer. ... Winning his first Summer Nationals feature, Hurst was largely unchallenged throughout the feature and won by 2.495 seconds over Dennis Erb Jr. of Carpentersville, Ill. ... Jordan Bauer had a series-best third-place finish. ... Outside front-row starter Rich Bell held the second spot for 32 laps but slipped back to finish fifth. ... The caution-free 40-lapper was over in 10 minutes. ... Eleven drivers finished on the lead lap. ... Peoria's race was non-points makeup of the three times rained out DIRTcar Summer Nationals feature. … The series actually had set most of the field for the event on the original July 9 date (the first consolation was in the lineup chute when a heavy thunderstorm hit the track), but the event was started from scratch.
On the move: Runner-up Dennis Erb Jr. of Carpentersville, Ill., started eighth.
Winner's sponsors: Hurst's Robert Motorsports Black Diamond Chassis is sponsored by Roberts Custom Software, Sling Studio, Capri College, Bader Construction, Preston Telephone Company, Roemer Machine & Welding, Nutrien Ag Solutions, Done Right Satellite, A&E Freight Services, Dirty Slots Slot Cars and Swift Springs.
Points chase: Brian Shirley of Chatham, Ill., wrapped up the Summer Nationals championship last month.
