Photos: Sunday Fall Nationals at Eldora

It may have been 16 hours later than scheduled, but Jeep Van Wormer (Pinconning, Michigan) and Nick Hoffman (Mooresville, North Carolina) scored the $5,000 victories in the rain-delayed championship events in the Allstar Performance Fall Nationals Sunday at Eldora Speedway.

The UMP Late Model feature restarted with 16-laps completed before Saturday night’s rain. When the race resumed Van Wormer withstood challenges from Kent Robinson and then Bobby Pierce for the lead. The Michigan racer claimed the $5,000 win.

With a 3rd-place finish Robinson clinched the 2017 Eldora Speedway Late Model Track Championship.

Jon Henry  finished in fourth-place and wrapped up the Sunoco American Late Model Series season championship.

Rusty Schlenk finished ninth to secure his second DIRTcar UMP National Championship over Ryan Unzicker.

In UMP Modified action fourth-starting Nick Hoffman drove to the lead on lap 7 and never looked back on his way to the $5,000 win.

Jerry Bowersock finished 9th in the feature to wrap up the Eldora Speedway UMP Modified Championship.
