MARYVILLE, Tenn. (May 4) Donald continued his hot streak and his love affair with the new Rocket/Vic Hill combination as he took the win Saturday night in the unsanctioned Dirt Showdown.
Donald dominated the night’s activities as he set fast time, started on the outside front row, took the lead on lap seven and went on to record his second win in the last three races.
“I’m just so glad to be back racing after this six week layoff. I couldn’t be happier and to have the car running as good as it is just makes it that much better,” grinned Donald who raked in $5,500 for the night’s work. “The car is great and the 440 engine package from Vic Hill fits it perfectly.
The Rocket/Vic Hill combination has raced six times. The results so far are six top five finishes with two wins.
“Had another good night. You could get used to this, but you know better because in racing good runs are the exception, not the rule,” said David. “The car, the engine, Donald and I are all on the same page and it shows.”
With the two races in a three day spurt you would like to think that racing is back, but it is far from it. As things unfold and races are scheduled again BMS will work out their schedule.
In the meantime Donald will race his car at tracks in his area. Thursday night he will be at Senoia Raceway for the Dirt on Dirt Shoot Out. Grandstands are closed with a live pay-per-view telecast of the race.
