Hirschman Conquers North Wilkesboro Speedway

NORTH WILKESBORO, N.C. — In a historic night of doubleheader modified racing, Matt Hirschman excelled en route to victory in the Brushy Mountain Powersports 150, the first NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race at North Wilkesboro Speedway. Hirschman was first among a large group that opted to pit for the first time under caution on lap 44. After restarting 13th, it took Hirschman just 15 laps to pilot his No. “I was thinking before this race this was going to be a really hard race to win just because of the amount of strategy, the amount of pit stops,” explained Hirschman. With 50 laps to go Hirschman surrendered the race lead to Ryan Newman, who took advantage of a caution on lap 67 to get fresher rubber on his No. Hirschman trailed Newman after pit stops, but regained the lead on the restart with 38 laps to go.
