MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 30) Donald McIntosh and William Thomas were behind the wheel of the Blount Motorsports cars at East Alabama Motor Speedway for the SAS Alabama State Championships Friday and Saturday night.
On Friday night Thomas finished 11th and McIntosh 12th On Saturday night McIntosh started sixth and finished 23rd after being run off the track. Thomas started 14th and had moved to fifth when he jumped the cushion and ended up finishing eighth.
“Both Donald (McIntosh) and William (Thomas) did better than it showed on the final rundown especially when you consider William jumped into the car cold and Donald had one race in the car he drove,” said David. “It is not an easy deal for us or for the drivers and we knew that going in.”
The driver changes have shown that there are some parts of the BMS program that needs to be looked at and possibly some changes made.
“We are in the process of evaluating our whole program. We have found that there are some other things that need to be addressed and that’s what we are doing,” concluded David.
This coming weekend the team with McIntosh behind the wheel will race at Tri-County on Friday night, Dixie Speedway on Saturday night and Rome Speedway on Sunday night.
