MARYVILLE, Tenn. (May 23) Donald was on a roll and rolled the Blount Motorsport’s Rocket to a Southern Nationals Bonus Series (SNBS) win at Crossville Speedway on Saturday night.
McIntosh was fast qualifier, won the Dash and won the SNBS Plateau 50, but it was anything but a cakewalk with Mike Marlar and Cory Hedgecock making things interesting.
“The car was awesome. Mike (Marlar) was right there all night and that slide job he put on me about midway in the race was really something,” said Donald who after three laps returned the favor and went back around Marlar to retake the lead and go on for the win. “David Bryant, B.J. Hillman and everyone gave me a winning car and I was able to win with it. What a great night!”
“I wouldn’t say it was a perfect night, but when you have a good race car, good competition, exciting racing and you come out with a win, it was definitely a good night,” said David. “We are going into the last three Spring Nationals races this weekend and hopefully tonight will give us the momentum we need to win the championship again this year.”
Memorial Weekend will see the Blount Motorsports Team racing the three final Spring National events. On Friday night they will race at Boyd’s Speedway, Saturday night at Dixie Speedway and Sunday at Rome Speedway. On Monday they will make it four races in a row as they will race the SNBS race at Tri-County Race Track.
