Tuesday December 11, 2018 – Kendal Tucker takes home round 8 of the D1RT Racing Jackpot Modified Series Presented by VLR at Volusia Speedway Park! With the win, Tucker becomes the 8th different winner in eight races in the Jackpot Modified Series.
The win was Tucker’s first in a major series sanctioned by VLR. The Mt Airy, NC driver started from the inside of row two before eventually working his way to the lead and never looking back. Tucker would have to hold off stout challenges from a host of drivers, including previous Jackpot Modified Series winner Dylan Wilson to earn the win.
Fans were treated to an action pack race that came down to a final Green White Checkered shootout for the win. Once the dust settled on the 1/2 mile D-Shaped dirt oval, Tucker had managed to pick up the win by just .130 seconds over Dylan Wilson. The two drivers came off turn four and made contact and both drivers slid across the line sideways in a wild finish, with Tucker getting the top spot. Be sure to tune in next Tuesday night for the season finale LIVE from Knoxville Raceway!
