June 8, 2019 - Strickler Makes All Three Features in Dirt Late Model Dream at Eldora
1Kyle Strickler embarked on a life-long “Dream” over the weekend as he took a Dirt Late Model into battle at Eldora Speedway. The first-year driver of the G-Style Transport No. 8 Wehrs Machine/ Longhorn Race Car Super Late Model enjoyed a great, debut weekend at the 25th running of the Dirt Late Model Dream.

Strickler claimed multiple rookie awards, started on the pole on Saturday night and led more than 30 laps in the crown jewel finale.

“I’ve dreamed my whole life of driving a Dirt Late Model at Eldora Speedway, and this weekend I got to do just that,” Strickler noted. “We had an unbelievable weekend. To earn the pole position for the feature and then lead so many laps was something special for our team. I hate that we saw our chances at a Top-5 run eliminated by that late-race tangle, but it still doesn’t take away from our weekend accomplishments. I can’t wait to go back in September for the World 100.”
