Dylan “The Hitman” Cappello Scores Fourth Straight Win in 2019
Bakersfield, CA – For the fourth straight Spears Manufacturing Modified Series presented by Lucas Oil event, Peoria, Arizona’s Dylan Cappello drove his Team RBK, Arizona Quick Response Garage Doors #11c to victory lane.
From his 7th starting position, Cappello quickly made his way to the front of the field, where he eventually wrestled the lead from his teammate Eddie Secord on Lap 36. From that point, traffic and two late race restarts were the only things that slowed Cappello on his way to the checkered. Secord held on to second at the finish, with Peyton Saxton in third, Doug Hamm fourth and Travis McCullough rounding out the top five. Of the top five, McCullough was the only driver not using a 602-crate engine.
