MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Nov. 25) Donald and Blount Motorsports finished up their season at Cleveland Speedway Saturday night running the Joe Lee Johnson Gobbler. About halfway through the race their transponder went out and at this time Ray Cook and Cleveland officials are trying to determine exactly where they finished.
“We practiced good, qualified horrible and raced good,” said David. “We were one of few cars that was passing out there, but when you start back where we did, you are not going to get much done. ”
For 2016 the team has ordered a new engine from Vic Hill Racing Engines and has one of the new 2016 Rockets on order. They will be at the Performance Racing Industry Show in Indy in early December and kick off the 2016 season with the Hangover 40 at 411 Motor Speedway on January 1.
“Our first race in 2016 will be that Hangover at 411 on January 1 and we have the PRI Show in Indy coming up in a couple of weeks,” continued David. “We have a number of areas in our program we need to address over the winter and exactly what we are going to do next year depends on what the area series decide to do as far as scheduling and purses go.”
