Weaver Powers to DIRTcar Summer Nationals Win at Wilmot

 

 

WILMOT, Wis. — June 16, 2013 — After breaking a driveshaft while leading two nights earlier, Kevin Weaver bounced back in a big way on Sunday night by capturing his first DIRTcar Summer Nationals “Hell Tour” victory in five seasons at Wilmot Raceway.

Weaver, of Gibson City, Ill., started outside of the first row in his Jimmy John’s-sponsored car and was definitely “freaky fast” on the high side the majority of the night en route to capturing the $5,000 checkered flag. Weaver held off pole sitter Brandon Sheppard, giving Sheppard his second consecutive runner-up finish.

“It was just an awesome car and an awesome race for me tonight," said Weaver, the 2000 DIRTcar Summer Nationals champion.

Brian Birkhofer, Shannon Babb and Ryan Unzicker rounded out the top five.

Heat race winners included Brian Birkhofer, Brandon Sheppard and Kevin Weaver.

The DIRTcar Summer Nationals Hell Tour continues on Wednesday at Spoon River Speedway in Canton, Ill.
