Harrison Scores Summit Racing Equipment AMS Victory at Fayette County

Mike Harrison

Brownstown, IL (May 5, 2018): The Summit Racing Equipment American Modified Series would roll into Fayette County Speedway in Brownstown, IL on Saturday evening. Mike Harrison would pick up his first AMS victory of the 2018 season in his Impressive #24h entry and bag the $2,000 first place prize money.

Josh Harris would take the lead at the start of the 30 lap A-Main event followed closely by Danny Schwartz. The first caution of the event waved on lap four when Matt Cooper would slow off turn two. On the restart, Harris would rocket back to the lead off turn two but the race would be slowed once again one lap later for a multi-car pileup in turn two. This restart would see Harris maintain his lead once again but would be heavily pressured for several laps by Danny Schwartz and new challenger Mike Harrison. The event’s final caution would be on lap seventeen for an accident in turn four involving Chris Smith and Gary Bentley. Harris would once again maintain his lead on the restart; however, his night would come to end on lap-19 with a mechanical failure thus forfeiting the lead to Mike Harrison. Mike Harrison would not relinquish the top spot on his way to the $2,000 victory. Trent Young finished in the runner-up position, with Rick Conoyer driving to a third-place finish. Danny Schwartz would finish in the fourth position and Tommie Seets would finish fifth.
