Dillard does it again at Ark-La-Tex Speedway

By USMTS (Vivian, LA) -- The Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt rolled into the Ark-La-Tex Speedway in Vivian, Louisiana, Thursday for the first of three nights at the ‘Land of Three Wide’ with native son Cade Dillard of Robeline notching his series-best fourth career USMTS victory here.

Opening night at the 10th Annual USMTS Cajun Clash saw a scary-good field of 59 powerful Summit USMTS Modifieds roll through the gates for the fifth race of the season with USRA Limited Mods and Sunoco USRA Factory Stocks also on the card.

Houston’s Colton Horner set the pace for the 30-car starting field to get the green flag, and then proceeded to lead the first seven laps before Dillard was able to race ahead to lead the eighth lap.

Just two brief cautions slowed the action in the 35-lap main event with the final yellow flag waving with just a handful of laps remaining when Rodney Sanders and Jim Chisholm split a lapped machine, resulting in Sanders sliding to a stop atop turn three.

Back under green Chisholm challenged Dillard in the final five laps but had to settle for runner-up honors while ‘The Thriller’ pocketed a $3,000 paycheck and his 20th career USMTS triumph.

“This is where I got my first USMTS win,” Dillard recalled. “It’s been a long road since then and I’m just thankful for the opportunities I’ve had.

“I never thought I'd still be racing, much less doing the things I've got to do, but it's a blast. To me there's nothing more fun than mod racing… There’s not better modifieds in the country than what races with these guys and I got so much respect for them.”

Behind Chisholm, Dereck Ramirez held off Darron Fuqua for third while Grant Junghans USMTS Rookie of the Year contender Chase Holland completed the top five. Horner, points leader Jason Hughes, 18th-starting Tyler Wolff, Brandon Givens and Taton Hansen rounded out the top ten.

Action continues Friday and Saturday at the Ark-La-Tex Speedway for rounds two and three of the 10th Annual USMTS Cajun Clash. USRA Limited Mods, Sunoco USRA Factory Stocks and USRA Tuners will also be on the card.
