Dawsonville, Georgia – In his season opening event Donald McIntosh came up one spot short of a win in his Blount Excavating #7 Stowers CAT/ Rocket Chassis/ Vic Hill Racing Engine Super Late Model. The Georgia racer registered a runner-up finish in the 26th annual Ice Bowl at Talladega Short Track.
On Friday night Donald McIntosh opened the 2017 season at Talladega Short Track (Eastaboga, Alabama) with the preliminary events for the rescheduled 26th annual Ice Bowl. Drawing 51 Super Late Models for the two-day event, McIntosh followed up the 4th-fastest time overall in qualifying with a heat race victory.
Earning the 3rd-starting position for the $6,000-to-win A-Main on Saturday, Donald battled rubbered-up conditions to notch a podium finish in the 50-lap main event. Jumping into the 2nd position early in the A-Main, McIntosh closed in race-leader Michael Page on lap-12 due to lapped traffic. Unable to make the pass for the lead early in the race, Donald McIntosh made a last lap dash for the top spot but came up short when the checkered flag flew, registering a 2nd-place finish behind Page with Jason Hiett, Brian Smith, and Jason Welshan rounding out the Top 5.
“We had a real good car, but Michael [Page] was just a little bit better,” said McIntosh. “It was one-groove so it was tough to pass, but I’m really proud for this team and we’ll definitely take a runner-up finish to start the year.”
