Nick Hoffman cruises to Emil & Dale Reutimann Memorial at Volusia
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (11/20/23) – Nick Hoffman returned to familiar territory over the weekend and achieved familiar results.
Piloting the Allgaier Motorsports No. 7 Federated Auto Parts / Elite Chassis Modified, Hoffman streaked to the $10,000 victory in the 10th annual Emil and Dale Reutimann Memorial at Florida’s Volusia Speedway. The victory was his second in the event and fifth overall on the season.
“I joked with everyone that my kids broke the tractor I won in the first one (Emil and Dale Reutimann Memorial) so I had to go after another one. Everything went our way on Saturday night. I missed it somewhere on the setup the entire night and didn’t feel very good, but Maddox drew the pole and I was able to lead all the laps. Thanks to my crew and the entire Allgaier family for the opportunity,” Hoffman shared. “See everyone at the Dome (at America’s Center) in a few weeks.
