Team #60 was back at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Ohio last night for the 33rd Annual Dirt Track World Championship. Thursday night was a full schedule of Modified racing. 98 Modified drivers from all over were registered and the stands were packed! Dan qualified 3rd fastest in his group which put him in heat 5 starting on the outside pole. Due to light rain all day the track condition was tacky and fast. Green flag dropped for heat 5, Dan and Johnson were side by side coming into and out of corner 2. Dan had a little faster line, he took the lead on lap 1 and for the remainder of the race all the way to the checkers. A top 3 finish in the heat was the goal, it guaranteed you a spot in Saturday nights big show. So, a 1st place finish in the heat was just a bonus. Tonight (Friday) will be a full schedule of qualifying and heats for the Lucas Oil Late Models. Saturday night will consist of Dan's Modified feature and the Lucas Oil Late Model $50,000 to win feature. For immediate updates and results on Saturday check Dan Ebert #60 on Facebook.
Thanks to all sponsors and fans. We are looking forward to Saturday nights Modified feature!
