BRASSTOWN, N.C. — Donald McIntosh claimed his first Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series presented by Sunoco Race Fuels victory of the season Thursday at the Tri-County Race Track.
The Dawsonville, Ga., driver collected $4,000 for the win while driving the Blount Motorsports, Massey Electric, Blount Excavating and Stower’s CAT-sponsored Rocket Chassis, which is powered by a Vic Hill Racing Engine.
McIntosh became the fourth different winner in six points races so far. This was also Mcintosh’s fourth career Spring Nationals payday.
Polesitter McIntosh led all 40 laps in the feature and took the victory over series points leader Dale McDowell, who finished second in the Shane McDowell Racing Sweet-Bloomquist entry. Casey Roberts finished third, followed by Kenny Collins and Jamie Oliver.
McIntosh dominated the feature event but credited his team for the winning car.
“Man we made the right call on changes and everything, we had a really good car, anytime you can outrun Dale (McDowell) you’ve done something,” McIntosh said. “Track was pretty good tonight, it had a bottom and a top, I wasn’t so good in the bottom and around the lap cars I was a little scared. I can’t thank these guys enough, David Bryant (Crew Chief) and Eric Watson and everyone that’s a part of this team, it’s cool to be able to drive for them, what a night.”
