Chad Brachmann punched his ticket into the World’s Richest Big-Block Modified Race with a victory on Saturday night at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park.

The Sanborn, N.Y., resident captured the 25-lap DIRTcar Big-Block Modified ‘Win & You’re In’ feature before a standing-room-only crowd, earning himself $2,000 and the 47th starting position in Sunday’s prestigious Rite Aid 200 Presented By Ferris & Snapper Mowers at the nearby Syracuse Mile.
Adding more significance to Brachmann’s performance on a chilly fall evening, the triumph was his first-ever in Big-Block Modified competition at Rolling Wheels and was his first checkered flag anywhere in 2009.
