Chris Ferguson Finishes Fourth in the Dirt Late Model Dream
Three-Race Weekend Up Next
Mt. Holly, North Carolina (06/10/19) – Top to bottom, the 2019 edition of the Dirt Late Model Dream was a great experience for Chris Ferguson. The North Carolina racer put a cap on the crown jewel weekend with a fourth place finish in the finale in his Diff-Tran Machining #22 K and K Trucking/ Sweet-Bloomquist Race Car/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.
“We’ve shown some speed at Eldora in the past, but up until this weekend, we’ve never been able to put a whole weekend together. That all changed at this year’s Dream,” Ferguson revealed. “We actually had an oil leak for much of Saturday’s feature but we were still fast. We also battled a tight condition all weekend, and I actually pushed on the last lap giving up a couple of spots. We got a bit of a break though because the leaders got together at the checkered flag, and they threw the caution so they reverted back to lap 99, which gave us a fourth-place finish.
“It was fun racing these guys and being in the front all weekend at such a big event.”
Thursday found Chris Ferguson making the trek to Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) for the 25th annual Dirt Late Model Dream. Drawing a stout field of 92 Super Late Models for a pair of $10,000-to-win preliminary features, Ferguson recorded the seventh-fastest time in his group before placing third in his heat. Starting the A-Main in 11th, Chris streaked through the field seven spots to claim a fourth-place finish behind Darrell Lanigan, Jonathan Davenport, and Brian Shirley.
Returning on Friday for another round of preliminary features, Chris laid down the eighth-fastest lap in his time trial group before placing second in his heat race behind Shane Clanton. With $10,000 on the line in the feature, Ferguson jumped up two spots in the 25-lapper to finish second behind Shane Clanton with Ross Bailes, Chase Junghans, and Don O’Neal trailing them to the checkers.
For the final night of the Dirt Late Model Dream on Saturday evening, Ferguson placed sixth in his heat race, but was granted a provisional into the $125,000-to-win finale based upon his point’s total from the preliminary nights. Rolling off 20th, Chris passed 16 cars in the 100-lap affair, reeling in a fourth place finish behind Brandon Sheppard, Dale McDowell, and Shane Clanton.
