MARYVILLE, Tenn. (July 2) Donald scored two Iron-Man top five finishes over the weekend with a fourth at Crossville and a third at Smoky Mountain. Tommy racing only at Smoky Mountain had a seventh place finish.
Donald was fast qualifier at Crossville, started on the pole and came home fourth in the feature.
“The car wasn’t that good in the feature. We just couldn’t find any traction and really got killed on the restarts,” said David.
Saturday night at Smoky Mountain both McIntosh and Tommy Kerr were racing. McIntosh qualified second in the second group and started fourth in the feature. Just before the half-way point he had worked his way to second, when an altercation with a lapped car damaged the car. He was able to hang on for a third place finish.
“Car was a lot better and Donald was running second when a lapped car came down on him, hit the right side of the car taking out sheet metal and the spoiler. After that he was just hanging on,” continued David
Tommy qualified third in the first group, started fifth and finished seventh in the feature.
“Tommy did a good job with what he had to work with. With two cars racing we weren’t able to get all the tweaks we needed to do on the car,” concluded David.
The next event prior to the Southern Nationals will be the Iron-Man Firecracker 40 tonight, July 3, at 411 Motor Speedway.
