MARYVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 5) Debuting the new car Saturday night at 411 Motor Speedway Donald McIntosh started seventh and finished sixth in the unsanctioned $5,000 to win event.
During Friday night’s practice the new car responded well to changes, felt good and Donald was able to feel the car. On Saturday night for the race their adjustments, based on some of the older cars, didn’t work that well as the new car was too tight in the race.
“The new car is and will be changing out whole game plan and we didn’t adjust well for the race,” said David Bryant. “All we have to do now, that we have a car that responds well is figure out what adjustments to make.”
Coming up are five races in six days starting with the Castrol 10k event at Tri-County Racetrack on Thursday night. Friday night at Smoky Mountain, Saturday night at Dixie and Sunday at Rome are three Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series races. On Tuesday a Castrol 20k event at 411 Motor Speedway.
“Right now it looks like we will run one of the old cars at Tri-County on Thursday night and the New Car for the next four races,” concluded Bryant.
