Kenny Wallace comments as he appears to be the first driver to finish his 2022 dirt modified; Highlighting new rules
Weeks ago, DIRTcar UMP released new rules for 2022. Drivers, teams and fans were in an uproar. To the point that some even posted Sam Driggers cell number on social media and requested that fans tell them how much they love the new rules, sarcastically.
The body games have been simplified. Instead of twisting sheet metal for better aerodynamics, everything on the new bodies are straight and square.
Kenny Wallace is already done with his 2022 car and the world is still spinning. He’s posted a video below, highlighting the new 2022 UMP body.
Allgaier Motorsports built the body for Kenny Wallace to the specs in the new rule book. They’re out of Illinois.
For years, Hoffman’s twitter bio has stated, “Creator of a page or two in the rule book.”
Shortly after the 2022 DIRTcar rules announcement, Nick Hoffman tweeted, “I can now change my Twitter bio to creator of a whole damn rule book.”
