MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 9) Three races in three days at three different race tracks led to three different outcomes for Donald McIntosh in the Blount Motorsports Dirt Late Models.
At Tri-County on Friday night McIntosh finished third, at Dixie he missed the race by one position in the consi and at Rome on Sunday he won his consi, started 18th and had worked his way to 10th when something broke. And he was relegated to an 18th place finish.
“It was a long and interesting weekend for sure,” said David Bryant. “We had a good run at Tri-County, just missed making the race at Dixie and had a competitive race car and a good run going at Rome when the flywheel broke.
Even though the weekends results don’t show it we gained a lot of ground this weekend and came away feeling positive about the whole deal.”
Although the team will not race the next couple of weekends they plan to close out the season with a flurry of races hoping to get a jump on 2015.
“We won the Spring Nationals championship and a couple of races, but this year has been a struggle and has been very frustrating. This happens in racing and the only way to get out of it is to work your way out of it. And that is what we are doing,” concluded Bryant.
