Farmer City, IL – September 1, 2017 – The Summit Racing Equipment American Modified Series would kick off a three-race Labor Day weekend of racing action in the state of Illinois at Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, IL on Friday evening and Mike Harrison of Highland, IL would pick up his series leading third win of the season and his thirty-first UMP Dirt Car feature victory of the season and score the $3,000 payday.

Nick Hoffman would jump to the early race lead at the start of the event and would survive a pair of lap three cautions to maintain an early advantage in the contest. Hoffman would still hold the race lead by lap ten when the next caution would slow the action for Preston Seratt’s flat right-rear tire. Only two more laps would be completed when caution waved again for a K.C. Burdette spin in turn two and the restart would see trouble for Hoffman as his mount would slow on the lap twelve restart and he would be done for the night. This would turn the race lead over to Dave Wietholder and Wietholder would hold the top spot until lap fifteen when Mike Harrison would charge past Wietholder and take the race lead. The only thing that would slow Harrison for the remainder of the contest would be a caution for debris on lap thirty-six, however, Harrison would keep the top spot on the final restart and see the checkered flag to take the win. Wietholder would claim runner-up honors, while Kenny Wallace would claim the final podium position with a third place finish. Danny Schwartz would start 22nd and would finish fourth, while David Stremme finished fifth.

The remainder of the top ten at the completion of the Farmer City Raceway A-Main would be Devin Gilpin, Jeffrey Ledford, Trent Young, series points leader Josh Harris, and twentieth starting Ray Bollinger.

The next events for the Summit Racing Equipment American Modified Series will be Saturday September 2 at Fairbury’s American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, IL ($10,000 to win) and Sunday September 3 at Fayette County Speedway in Brownstown, IL ($5,000 to win).
