Will Krup Charges to Summit Racing Equipment AMS Victory at Cedar Ridge Speedway

MORGANTOWN, KY JULY 21, 2018                            CEDAR RIDGE


The Summit Racing Equipment American Modified Series completed the weekend doubleheader at Cedar Ridge Speedway Saturday night. Will Krup would take home the $3,000 victory in his #19 Elite Chassis entry.


Brandon McDowell and Josh Harris would lead the field to green for the 30-Lap main event Saturday night at Cedar Ridge Speedway. McDowell would grab the early lead with Harris settling in the second position. The event’s first caution would fly on lap-3 for Rich Dawson’s spin in turn 2. On the restart, Harris would take his turn at the point edging in front of McDowell off turn two. Harris would begin to stretch his lead over the field for the next several laps and close in on lap traffic. While Harris maintained control of the field, Will Krup would begin his assault on the field from his 13th starting position utilizing the low-line around the speedway. In the closing laps, Krup would move into the second position and set his sights on long-time race leader Harris. As the field would begin lap-26, the event’s final caution would fly for a slowing Chad Boone with a flat right rear tire. The final five lap dash would see Krup apply heavy pressure on Harris with the two drivers running side-by-side coming to the white flag. Krup would edge away and complete the last-lap pass off turn two and claim his first series victory of the 2018 season. Harris would settle for second position, while series point leader Trent Young would claim third. Fourth would go to Scott James and rounding out the top five would be Ricky Arms.


The remainder of the top ten at the completion of the Summit Racing Equipment A-Main at Cedar Ridge Speedway would be Brandon McDowell, Peyton Harlow, Kenny Wallace, Brian Shaw, and Blaze Melton.


The next event for the Summit Racing Equipment Modified Series will be August 17th at Charleston Speedway. The event will pay $2,000.00 to the winner.
