MARYVILLE, Tenn. (May 27) Donald McIntosh wheeled the BMS Rocket to a fourth place finish on Saturday at Thunderhill and was running fifth on Monday night at 411 when mechanical problems relegated him to a 15th place finish.
The car hasn’t been bad, in fact it has been pretty good, but not as good as it was or needs to be.
“The car is OK, but OK doesn’t get it. We have lost the balance and a lot of the traction we were enjoying earlier in the year,” said David. “We have had everything apart trying to figure it out and we have a couple of things we are going to try.”
On Monday night in the Scott Sexton Memorial they ran over something and it flattened the tires and ripped off the brake line.
“Scott was a good friend and a good guy and we always want to do good in his race. We were not doing too bad, when we ran over something and shelled the right front break line and flatten the tire,” continued David “Its great to be back racing, but we need to be racing better.”
The next event on the BMS schedule will be the Toyota of Knoxville 10K to win event at Tazewell Speedway on Saturday night.
