With the win, Perrego took home a $5,000 check. Plus, as a rookie, he also took home an additional $500.

“The race track got tricky and the bottom was a lot like it is in upstate New York racetracks and I race on these style of tracks day in and day out,” Perrego said in Victory Lane. “The more patient you can be the better the car works.”

In his first race in this car, he finished ninth following the disqualification of Josh Conover on Friday night. Billy Pauch Jr. was credited with the win following Conover’s disqualification.

Perrego is the sixth different Dirt 600 winner in the 5th East Coast Dirt Nationals event. Previous winners include Whitney Kidd III, Erick Rudolph, Jon Keller, Tim Buckwalter, and Pauch Jr. before Perrego’s win.

Lineman Motorsports sponsored driver Brian Carber finished second. Carver also had support from Carbers Lawn Cars and Storm Troopers.

LHS Engines sponsored Briggs Danner, the former USAC East Coast Sprint Car Champion, who finished third.
