(Middlebourne, WV) Eddie Carrier Jr. piloting the 2Brothers Motorsports “Outlaw” made his way to Portsmouth Raceway Park on Thursday sporting a familiar black and orange paint scheme with the traditional flames engulfing a large #1 on the door. Symbolically foreshadowing the weekend ahead for the Salt Rock, WV native who charged from 5th to earn the checkers on Friday night during the modified portion of 39th Dirt Track World Championship for UMP Renegades of Dirt Modifieds.

Carrier Jr. wasted no time gobbling up positions on his way to the lead off the start. Meanwhile, the entire field battled for positions with a plethora of cars battling for top five honors.
