On Friday afternoon, Drake Troutman trekked to the Dirt Track at Charlotte (Concord, N.C.) to enter his Modified into battle for the Drydene World Short Track Championship.

Starting Saturday night’s $4,000-to-win A-Main in 18th, Troutman ran as high as sixth but a left-rear tire packed full of mud dropped him to 10th when the checkered flag flew. He also improved one spot in the All-Star Invitational feature to finish seventh.
