The week started out rough when Marriott didn’t qualify for the feature race and had to take a provisional starting spot as a former Dakota Tour champion, starting 29th in a field of the nation’s top IMCA Modified drivers. He fought his way to an impressive 10th by the end of the race.

Things got a lot better on night two at Nodak Speedway in Minot. Hunter not only qualified for the feature, he won the feature after lining up 3rd on the grid! After two more wins at Williston Basin and Southwest Speedway, Hunter clinched the points with a second place finish at Dacotah Speedway in Mandan.

ABOUT Bilstein Corp of America®

When August Bilstein laid the foundations for the innovation incubator BILSTEIN in Altenvoerde in Germany's Westphalia region in 1873, nobody had any idea of the crucial influence the company's products would one day have on the driving comfort and safety of cars.Now, the name BILSTEIN has for many decades been closely associated with high tech in the field of suspension design, driving comfort and safety. In order to expand this position in the future, BILSTEIN became a division of ThyssenKrupp Technologies AG in 1988, and a wholly-owned subsidiary in 2005.
