Garrett Krummert’s last win on the BRP Modified Tour series came on June 5th at Hummingbird Speedway. He has been shut out since, but on Sunday night Garrett Krummert put the competition in his rearview mirror and scored his second BRP Modified win of the season at Tri City Raceway.
Kyle Fink and Brad Rapp brought the twenty-five car field to the green flag with Rapp getting the jump on lap one. Rapp held the lead through the sixth lap when eighth place starter, Krummert used the outside of the track to take the lead. The first caution flew on lap twelve for Rex King, Sr. that had problems with the rear suspension on his car and came to a stop in turn four. On the restart, Krummert once again took command another seven laps clicked off before a caution for Steve Slater on lap nineteen slowed the action.
Two more quick cautions during the final portion of the race found Krummert in command and at times ¼ of track lead over the other drivers. A caution on lap twenty-nine of the thirty-lap event for JR McGinley and Tom Holden brought out a green-white-checkered finish, but Krummert was never challenged for the lead. At the finish Ryan Susice came home second behind Krummert with Brad Rapp holding onto third after losing a header pipe. Chad Brachmann finished fourth with Jeremiah Shingledecker coming from the seventeenth starting position to finish fifth. Sixth through tenth went to Rex King, Jr., Dave Murdick, Jimmy Holden, Greg Martin and Mark Frankhouser.
Heats were won by Krummert, King, Sr. and Rick Regalski. There were 27 cars in the pit area with Steve Barr and Chris Haines unable to make the call for the feature.
The next event on the BRP Modified Tour schedule is this coming Saturday night, September 11, 2021 at Latrobe Speedway. Gates open at 5pm with racing at 7pm.
