Nicely Bringing Summer Nationals Title Stride to Prairie Dirt Classic

FAIRBURY, Ill. — Tyler Nicely will have his name etched in the history books alongside Modified legends Mike Harrison, Kenny Wallace and Nick Hoffman during the 33rd Prairie Dirt Classic, July 28-29. Nicely pointed to a new chassis and help from last year’s Summer Nationals Modified champion as key elements. “We switched back to an Elite Chassis this year,” Nicely said. “Nick (Hoffman, the owner of the chassis company) has been very helpful. Hoffman, the five-time DIRTcar Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals champion and all-time winningest driver in the Series with 69 wins, has more than 100 Elite Chassis racing around the country. With Nicely, Hoffman said he sees a lot of himself in the 28-year-old; a young guy, racing with a couple of young crew members. “Fairbury has been good to me, and it’s been bad to me,” Nicely said. “That there is probably the most atmosphere other than the [Gateway Dirt Nationals],” Nicely said.
