BARBERVILLE, Fla. — Ty Dillon held off his brother, Austin, over the final three laps to win the DIRTcar UMP Modified feature Friday night at Volusia Speedway Park.

Ty Dillon had the field covered until his brother started closing in. On a restart with three laps to go, Ty Dillon charged out to the lead but was forced to hold off Austin Dillon to the checkered flag.

“I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into these cars,” said Ty Dillon. “A lot of people don’t know, we had to thrash for about a week straight, all-nighters, to get these cars together. The only problem we’ve had is being in the same heat with each other, but tonight we were able to prove what we had. Hopefully it’s what we have for the rest of the week with these guys.”

The Dillon brothers have become fixtures at the DIRTcar Nationals in recent years, especially in victory lane at Volusia Speedway Park.

“What we love about this is we get to come out here, break the rust off and run seven or eight races, have a little fun getting into our race scenarios and getting our minds going for the NASCAR season,” Ty Dillon said. “On top of that, we love dirt racing and this is what we love to do. We’re just having a blast.”

The finish:

Ty Dillon, Austin Dillon, Brian Ruhlman, Nick Hoffman, Jeff Babcock, Dale Mathison, Matt Westfall, Paul Miles, Nate Zimmer, Devin Gilpin, Austin Arneson, Tyler Nicely, Kenny Wallace, Will Krup, Dave Wiethholder, Dwight Niehoff, Troy Girolamo, Matt Crafton, Kenny Schrader, Jack Steilder, Nick Kurtz, Billy Workman Jr., Kyle Strickler, Kent Robinson.
