Drake Troutman was in action on Friday night at Bedford Speedway (Bedford, Pa.) powering his RFI Resources Inc. No. 7 Modified. Outrunning Mike Altobelli Jr. in his heat race, Troutman locked into the sixth-starting position for the A-Main. Blasting into the lead on the fourth lap, Drake was running out front comfortably until a flat right-rear brought an immediate end to his night.
The following night at Cumberland Raceway (Cumberland, Md.) in his XR1 Rocket Chassis Late Model, Drake secured his spot into the main event with a heat race win. After running side-by-side with the leader for first three circuits, Troutman took control of the lead on the sixth lap and went on to pick up his sixth win of the season over Chuck Clise, Travis Stickley, Matt Cosner, and Kirk Baker.
On Sunday afternoon back in his Modified, Troutman scored a runner-up finish in his heat, which positioned him fourth on the starting grid for the A-Main. Clawing forward two spots, Drake notched a second place finish behind Mitch Thomas.
