McKenzie, Neilheiser Top Reutimann Memorial Showdowns

BARBERVILLE, Fla. — In a field 54 cars deep, 20 of the best DIRTcar UMP Modified drivers at Volusia Speedway Park are now locked into Saturday night’s main event — the ninth annual Emil & Dale Reutimann Memorial. The stage is now set for a redraw, last chance showdown and 50-lap, $7,000-to-win feature Saturday night. 1 by leading all 15 laps to cash-in on the $500 bonus. “I’m just so happy for the opportunity,” McKenzie said. Neiheiser, the UMP Modified veteran racer from Panama City, Fla., bagged his first career showdown feature victory. His second laps around on Friday night proved to be the fastest turned in a UMP Modified in track history, smashing Clint Bowyer’s previous record from 2011 by almost a half-second at 17.031. “Breaking the track record is pretty cool, I’ve never done that before,” Dotson said. Not many dirt track racers in the country can say they’ve won in their first competitive start in a UMP Modified, but Ashton Winger now can.
