On a night that saw three modified feature winners, Clint Bowyer came out on top after finishing second to Austin Dillon in the Triple 25 Feature #1. Bowyer wrapped up the eight nights of competition with three victories and three other top 5 finishes, including finishing 2nd to Ty Dillon in the UMP Gator Championship on Monday.

The last night of competition saw three winners pull into victory lane at Volusia Speedway Park. First was Austin Dillon who dominated the first 25 lap feature. “I really feel like we had the team to beat this week,” said Dillon, of Welcome, N.C. “Things just got away from us earlier in the week after we blew an engine.” The blown engine eventually led to one of Bowyer’s wins.
The second 25 lap feature saw Ken Schrader take home the checkered flag infront of friend Kenny Wallace. Schrader led every lap, and his victory would come up just short of taking home the overall crown by placing 2nd to Bowyer in the overall standings.

The third and final race for the UMP modifieds saw Ty Dillon passing for the lead on lap 4 before having to fight off a hard charging Micheal Long to claim the Victory. It was Dillon’s 2nd victory in as many days as he took home the checkered flag at the Gator Championship on Monday over Bowyer.
