MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Feb. 27) Donald qualified the Blount Motorsports Stowers Cat Rocket third, started third and finished second in the Frostbuster at 411 Motor Speedway on Saturday.
“We had a good car and Donald did a good job, we just came up one position short,” said David. “Donald and Jason (Welshan) swapped slide jobs and the lead with about 10 laps to go, but Jason came out on top.”
Blount Motorsports, who has won the last three OMG Spring Nationals’ Championships, has their sights set on making it four in a row. They are looking for a strong start in the upcoming Spring Nationals opener, The Fourth Annual Tennessee Tip-off Classic at Smoky Mountain Speedway on Friday and Saturday March 10th and 11th.
“You never know if racing in Georgia and Florida is going to make things better when the season really cranks up here in a couple of weeks, but you like to think that it did,” continued David. “We are always looking for more seat time and getting more experience at different race tracks with different drivers and we accomplished that.
With the Spring Nationals kicking off at Smoky Mountain in a couple of weeks we will see if in fact the early racing helped things.”
