Drake Troutman registered his 17th win of 2021 over the weekend by taking his Smith Transport / RFI Resources No. 7 MB Customs Race Car / Lasalle Racing Engine Modified to Victory Lane at West Virginia’s I-77 Speedway.
The Renegades of Dirt Modified triumph was worth $1,500 and allowed him to extend his advantage atop the series standings.
“We missed the setup for the feature at Hilltop Speedway on Friday night, and as a result faded in the feature. However, on Saturday night at I-77 (Speedway) we won the Renegades of Dirt Modified feature and finished third in the Super Late Model main event. It was a late but a strong night for our team,” Troutman noted. “We’ll head to Indiana this week in search of more wins. Thanks as always goes out to each-and-every person who supports our team.”
Friday night found Drake Troutman in action at Hilltop Speedway (Millersburg, Ohio) for the Jeff Norris Memorial. With 31 cars entered, Troutman qualified second fastest in time trials before finishing second in his heat race. Starting the $10,000-to-win A-Main in fifth, Drake faded three spots in the 50-lapper to finish eighth.
Pulling double duty on Saturday afternoon at I-77 Speedway (Ripley, W.V.), Drake notched a third-place finish in the $5,000-to-win Late Model feature. He trailed Freddie Carpenter and Chris Carpenter to the checkers.

With his victory, Drake padded his advantage atop the series standings.
