Dylan Wilson Wins DIRTcar eSports at Charlotte

Thursday, Jul 16 649

Make it seven different winners in eight races in the DIRTcar eSports league.

Dylan Wilson earned himself a hard-fought victory in Wednesday night's DIRTcar eSports Summit Racing Equipment UMP Modified Showdown after battling it out with Alex Bergeron and Dylan Houser in the latter portion of the race to score the big check at The Dirt Track at Charlotte and a new virtual trophy on his shelf.

Wilson led the opening circuits but was quickly tracked down by the race's Hard Charger, Dylan Houser, who started 14th on the grid and made the pass for the lead just 15 laps in. Houser kept up the momentum while Bergeron began to put the pressure on next, taking the lead for a few laps himself just past the halfway point.

Wilson and Houser later became locked in a dogfight for the lead in the final laps, trading multiple slide jobs in lapped traffic. But in the end, it was Wilson coming out on top, making the final pass on Houser for the lead with 5 laps to go to take the checkers.
