MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 4) Over this past weekend Donald and the Blount Motorsports Team raced three races at three race tracks and they salvaged one top 10 out of the three.
The weekend started Friday night for the Southern Nationals Bonus race at Tri-County Race Track. On lap four there was a big crash and Donald had nowhere to go. Even with severe damage to the car he was able to tough it out and finished 10th.
“The car was really tore up in the wreck, but when you are chasing points a DNF will kill you so we went back out and finished the race,” said David.
Saturday night it was the Lucas Oil Shoot Out at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, GA. Donald qualified well, won the third heat and started fifth.
“After a good qualifying run, winning our heat and starting fifth we thought we were in pretty good shape. In the race we were not good at all and instead of going forward we went backward,” continued David.
At Rome on Sunday they qualified good and finished fourth in their heat. In the feature the car wasn’t great, but it was good.
“We got to moving up in the feature at Rome and the car was pretty good, but we had a flat and that wiped everything out. After a weekend like this you question why you are doing this, but when you get back to the shop you get after it and get ready for the next one,” concluded David.
The next event for McIntosh and the Blount Motorsports Team will be the SNBS Tennessee State Championship at Crossville Speedway on Friday and Saturday night.
