Lance Elson’s two wins made him the only other Modified driver to enter victory lane multiple times. Jesse Wisecarver cashed in with the 5th Annual ‘Let it Ride 55’ win paying a handsome $5,555 to win, while former EDGE Hotmod ace Chad Smith would pick up the traditional 12th Annual Dickson Classic.
