Drake Troutman scores seventh-place finish at Atomic Speedway
Drake Troutman entered his Smith Transport No. 7 Modified into battle with the Renegades of Dirt Modified Tour on Thursday afternoon at Atomic Speedway (Chillicothe, Ohio) for the Atomic Blast Renegade Nationals.
With 33 Modifieds on the grounds, Troutman timed in fourth-fastest before placing second in his heat. Starting Thursday’s $1,500-to-win qualifier in sixth, Drake was challenging for third when he suffered a mechanical issue with his driveshaft that sidelined him on the 10th circuit.
Back in action on Saturday, Drake followed up the fastest qualifying lap in his 16-car group with a heat race and dash victory. Starting on the pole for the main event, Troutman battled an ill-handling car to a seventh-place finish in the 30-lapper.
Sunday’s finale was cancelled by race officials.Back to News
