DIRTCar Summernationals: Jeep Jets to Vermilion Victory on "Hell Tour"

Kellen Burns

DANVILLE, Ill. - June 21.  Rebounding from a bitter breakdown while leading a night earlier, Jeep Van Wormer of Pinconning, Mich., led all 40 laps Monday at Vermilion County Speedway to capture the sixth leg of the DIRTcar Summer Nationals.

Van Wormer, who also won in Danville in 2008, earned $5,000 for his 12th career Summer Nationals victory. He turned back an early challenge by fifth-starting Jason Feger of Bloomington, Ill., who appeared to edge ahead just before a lap-13 caution for a turn-four scramble.

The yellow flag reset the field with Van Wormer on the point, and he was never headed again. Outside front-row starter Dennis Erb Jr. of Carpentersville, Ill., the three-time and reigning series champion, finished second for his first top-five finish on the tour. He fought off challenges from third-finishing Ryan Unzicker of El Paso, Ill., while Feger fell back to fifth behind Brian Shirley of Chatham, Ill., in the closing laps.
