Troutman parks Modified in victory lane at Hagerstown, third in Late Model

Drake Troutman piloted the Jerry Foster Racing / CertainTeed No. 5 ABC Supply Co. / All About Doors / Longhorn Chassis Modified to his 14th overall win of the 2023 season on Sunday evening with a triumph at Hagerstown Speedway.

“We came away with the Modified win on Sunday at Hagerstown (Maryland), and we were in contention for a pair of Super Late Model wins, but the cards just didn’t fall our way,” Troutman said. “I’m looking forward to heading west this week to kick off the Summer Nationals in Illinois. A big thank you goes out to all the great people who support my racing program!”

Drake Troutman kicked off a tripleheader weekend with the Appalachian Mountain Speedweek on Friday with a trip to Clinton County Speedway (Mill Hall, Pa.) for the $4,000-to-win opener.

With the top three qualifiers from each group getting sent to a dash, Troutman timed in second-fastest in his group before placing first in the dash. Earning the pole for the A-Main, Drake led the opening nine circuits but began to fade as his tires started to wear. He suffered a flat tire with three-to-go that ended his night early.

For Saturday’s stop at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway, Drake followed up the eighth-fastest lap in his qualifying group with an eight-lap heat race victory. Chasing a $4,000 payday in the feature, Troutman ran a steady pace in the 35-lapper to finish eighth.

Breaking out his Modified alongside his Super Late Model on Sunday evening at Hagerstown (Md.) Speedway, Troutman’s preliminary results in his Super Late Model placed him on the second row for the feature. With $4,000 on the line, Drake jumped to the lead and paced the field until a lap 30 restart relegated him to a third-place finish. He followed Gregg Satterlee and Kyle Hardy across the line.

In the Modified ranks, Drake went fifth-to-first in his heat before leading flag-to-flag in the 25-lap feature. He notched his 14th win of the 2023 campaign ahead of David Stremme, Michael Altobelli, Glenn Elliott, and George Dixon.
