Hoffman Begins 2023 WoO Campaign at Volusia
Nick Hoffman opened his 2023 rookie campaign with the World of Outlaws (WoO) CASE Late Model Series on Thursday night at Volusia Speedway Park (Barberville, Fla.).
Forty-three Super Late Models entered the $8,000-to-win Sunshine Nationals program, and after qualifying third fastest in his group in the Tye Twarog Racing No. 9 Longhorn Nick won his heat race from the outside-front-row starting spot.
The feature redraw positioned him fourth on the starting grid for the 25-lap affair. Unfortunately, Nick battled the handle throughout the feature and crossed the finish line in eighth.
On Friday evening another $8,000-to-win program was held for the WoO contingent. Nick was sixth fastest in his group before winning his heat race from the second-starting spot to earn the pole position for the 25-lap feature.
Hoffman took the lead from Ricky Thornton Jr. on the second circuit and paced the field through lap 7 before Devin Moran shot to the lead. Nick went on to race in the Top 5 throughout the feature before crossing the finish line in fourth behind Moran, Tim McCreadie, and Ricky Thornton Jr.
Saturday night's finale fell victim to rain.
