Hoffman Scores Second Summit Modified Win of 2020 at Clarksville Speedway

by Jordan DeLucia / July 26, 2020

Summit Modified – However, one of his closest competitors, Mike McKinney, did not have the night he was looking for behind the wheel of his Elite Chassis #96. He got caught in a pile-up with several other cars on Lap 6 and retired to the pit area immediately.

With McKinney sitting at three wins and Hoffman now with two, the points battle is poised to go right down to the wire with 15 races still to go. Despite the fact that only the best eight finishes are counted toward a driver’s overall points total with the Summit Modifieds, they’re both fierce competitors and are each shooting for as many wins as possible by the end of the tour.

If they both reach eight wins, it could come down to some math to decide a champion.
