BLYTHE, California (September 27, 2014) – Dylan Cappello's first win was memorable. His second was even better.
The 18-year-old from Peoria, Arizona, said it was "awesome," and that's an accurate description. Cappello, a rookie in the Lucas Oil Modified Series presented by LoanMart, dominated the Next Era Energy 100 presented by Sunoco Fuel at Lucas Oil I-10 Speedway Saturday night (September 27) by leading 82 of 100 laps on the tight quarter-mile oval and never facing a challenge en route to his second victory in a row and a tighter hold on the Hoosier Tire West championship points lead with two races remaining.

They had made the trip to Irwindale, California, for another race in the Lucas Oil Modified Series and were excited about racing on the fast half-mile oval for the first time. But two nights before the race thieves drove into the parking lot of their motel and drove out with the Robinson’s truck and trailer, a brand-new race car, a spare motor, all of Vanessa’s driving gear and all of their tools and equipment.
