MARYVILLE, TENN (JULY 25) This years Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals started with 11 races on the schedule, two were rained out, six have been run and Crossville Raceway, 411 Motor Speedway and Tazewell Speedway remain.
Going into number seven at Crossville tonight Donald McIntosh and the BMS team find themselves third in the series points. They are eight behind Brandon Overton and 40 behind leader Jake Knowles.
“So far we have had problems and Overton has had problems, but Jake (Knowles) has had everything going his way. I don’t want it to sound like Jake hasn’t driven well and he has, but one DNF can make all the difference,’ said David. “We run well at the last three tracks on the schedule and even if we run really well and Jake’s luck continues to hold we won’t catch him.”
In the first two events the BMS team had flat in each one or them. They were able to come back and record decent finishes. Then in the fourth event they were wrecked early and finished 19th.
“We haven’t run bad this year, but we haven’t run real well either and we haven’t been on a good roll in a long time. All we can do is just keep digging and hopefully pick up a win in these last three races, concluded Bryant.
