BATTLE OF TITANS: Nick Hoffman Wins Unpredictable Titan Machinery Showdown at Norman County Raceway 

“The Thrill from Mooresville” bests Devin Moran and Brandon Sheppard in a 50-lap dogfight to win the inaugural Feature in Ada, MN 


Nick Hoffman continues to win Feature races with the World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Models in spectacular fashion. 

The Mooresville, NC driver had to survive a leader’s curse and claw his way to the lead against a stout field of Late Models to score his fifth Series Feature win of 2024 at Norman County Raceway. 

Beginning the 50-lap Feature from outside the front row, Hoffman had to play second fiddle to Brandon, FL driver Kyle Bronson as he took command of the early portion of the race. 

Hoffman fell back to seventh while Oakwood, IL driver Bobby Pierce and Marshalltown, IA driver Ryan Gustin stepped up to challenge Bronson for the lead. 

Then, on Lap 24, Bronson blew a right rear tire while racing Pierce for the top spot, evaporating his chance to win the Feature. 

Then, three laps later, Pierce lost his motor while leading and pulled off the track to bring his night to a disappointing close. 

The struggles with the leaders continued as Gustin suffered mechanical issues on the restart and pulled off in Turn 1. 

The three leaders suffering problems opened the door for Dresden, OH driver Devin Moran to inherit the lead with 23 laps to go. Hoffman moved back to second and four-time Series champion Brandon Sheppard moved into the final podium spot. 

Using his familiar bottom-line tactic, Hoffman got to the bumper of Moran as lapped traffic approached the two leaders. 

When Moran got stuck on the bottom line, Hoffman swapped to the high line to take the Feature lead, sneaking his way through traffic as Moran was relegated to a fight with Sheppard for second. 

A caution with two laps to go set up a green-white-checkered finish at the Ada, MN facility. Hoffman fired off the way he needed, leading the last two laps to win the inaugural Titan Machinery Showdown at Norman County and score a $15,000 payday. 

“I got a couple of gifts there with those guys falling out,” Hoffman said. “It sucks for them, I was back to seventh at one point and I was getting frustrated there, but eventually the track came back to me. When you get back there, you feel like you’re screwed and can’t get back to the lead, but it all played out there and it was pretty good. I found the middle lane there and could start hammering on it. I was able to drive by (Devin) there. 

“I was definitely worried because I hit a piece of debris with about eight to go, then the caution as you take the white flag definitely sucks there. It got the wheels turning of what I need to do to block a slider and still carry enough speed off the corner. The racetrack came in better than I think a lot of us expected, but it was a fun place to race.”

Moran finished second to Hoffman after one last gasp to steal the win. The Double Down Motorsports No. 99 pilot is ready to try and get his third Series triumph of 2024 on Sunday at River Cities Speedway. 

“My team makes sure I have a great car underneath me,” Moran said. “It was unfortunate to see Bobby, Kyle and Gustin have those issues, but I feel like we got some work to do. We didn’t have near enough of a good race car, so we’ll have to work on it and hopefully be better in (River Cities) tomorrow.”

Sheppard completed the night’s podium, viewing the improvements his team can work on while continuing to lead the Series points by 14 points over Hoffman. 

“We were OK,” Sheppard said. “We had a good balance so we could race with everyone there. The restarts were our weakest point there, so we need to work on that. All in all, the track was awesome there, it raced about as good as it could have, I believe. Another good night, just need to keep plugging away and keeping to work at getting better.” 

Chatham, IL driver Brian Shirley picked up the fourth-place finish and Robeline, LA driver Cade Dillard took the last spot in the top five to move back to third place in the championship standings.
