Newsmaker of the Week // Jimmy Phelps

Jimmy Phelps’ win in the Outlaw 200 at Fulton Speedway for Dirt Modifieds is a maker of news for two reasons.

First, the win was worth $20,000 which is one of the highest first place payouts of the season. Anytime someone makes that much money, it’s big.

Second, the win demonstrated that Phelps is peaking at exactly the right time of the year. He made folks stand up and take notice heading into this weekend’s Super DIRT Week’s Modified 300 at Oswego.

Jimmy Phelps is a Newsmaker this week, and may have set himself for even greater laurels in the process.
