Robeline, Louisiana (07/08/19) – Cade Dillard battled to the lead early and never looked back on his way to winning the Independence Day Bash with the Dirt Kings Tour on Sunday evening at Wisconsin’s Eagle Valley Speedway. The triumph came aboard his S&S Fishing & Rental Inc. No. 97 MB Customs/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.
"A.J. [Diemel] took off there good, and I kind of felt a patch of rubber [in the low groove], and I knew I had to get by him before he found it. Luckily, I just found it before he did or we probably would've run second," Dillard said. "I had a really good car. It's been a long year, so to pick up another win feels really good."
