MARYVILLE, Tenn. (July 31) Donald was relegated to a second place finish when Brandon Overton overtook him with two laps remaining in the Southern Nationals Series finale at Tazewell Speedway Saturday night.
Donald was fastest in the second qualifying group, won the third heat and started third in the feature. He would lead 36 of the 51 laps in the feature before being over taken by Overton.
“We had a good car and were running good, but lapped traffic got us again. With two to go Donald opted to take the low groove past a lapped car and Overton took the high groove, the lead and the win,” said David.
For McIntosh this was his third Southern Nationals and it was his best effort.
“Donald and the team did a great job, worked hard and it showed. We had a good run this year with three consecutive feature wins, a number of fast times and heat race wins. We lacked three points or we would have been second instead of third in the points,” concluded David.
Looking down the road after the Nationals the schedule shows The North-South 100 at Florence Speedway is the next race. That one is not written in stone. When a final decision is made on whether the team is going or not it will be posted on BlountMotorsport.com
At the Crossville event on Thursday Donald was the fast qualifier in the second group, started and finished second.
