Donald McIntosh Scores Trio of Wins; Leads Southern Nationals Points
Dawsonville, Georgia (07/24/17) – Donald McIntosh experienced a career weekend with the Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals in his Blount Excavating #7 Ole Ben Franklin Motors/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Vic Hill Racing Engine Super Late Model. The Georgia racer streaked to a trio of victories, which propelled him to the top of the series standings.
“It was truly an amazing week for our team,” McIntosh said a big smile. “To win three races against such a stout field of racers is a dream come true. My family, my team, my sponsors, and so many other supporters helped make this possible. We’ve got our work cut out for us this if we are going to win the championship, but I have no doubt that our team is up to the challenge.”
For the second round of the Schaeffer Oil Southern Nationals Series, Donald McIntosh was one of 23 Super Late Models registered at Tri-County Race Track (Brasstown, North Carolina) on Monday night to do battle for the $3,500 top prize. Laying down the second-fastest time in qualifying behind Brandon Overton, McIntosh earned the 2nd-starting position for the A-Main. After running in a podium spot early in the finale, Donald suffered a flat tire on lap-29, sending him pitside. Rejoining the tail of the field, Donald McIntosh improved one spot in the remaining distance to place 9th.
The following night brought 29 Southern Nationals followers to 411 Motor Speedway (Seymour, Tennessee). Locking his spot into the feature via qualifying, McIntosh timed in fastest overall earning him the pole position. Jumping into the lead on the drop of the green flag, Donald led flag-to-flag capturing his fourth win of the season and a $3,500 payday. Vic Hill, Jake Knowles, David Doherty, and Jason Cardwell completed the Top-5 finishers in the 35-lapper.
After taking a scheduled day off on Wednesday, McIntosh returned to action on Thursday at Senoia Raceway (Senoia, Georgia) for the fourth round of the Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals Series. Following the fastest time overall in a field of 37 Super Late Models, McIntosh coasted to a 10-lap heat race win positioning him on the pole for the feature. Holding the field at bay after a caution flag came out with five laps remaining, Donald McIntosh wheeled his way to his second-straight victory and fifth win on the season in the 35-lap affair.
