Cannon McIntosh Ready for Pair of POWRi
West Showdowns this Weekend
Lonnie Wheatley, BIXBY, Okla. (June 21,
2019) – After two weekends of Speedweek action
throughout Indiana and Illinois, Cannon McIntosh
races closer to home this weekend with a pair of
Lucas Oil POWRi West League events in Oklahoma.
The POWRi West Sooner Showdown gets under
way Friday at Sapulpa, Oklahoma’s Creek County
Speedway before moving on to Tulsa’s Port City
Raceway on Saturday night.
Rather than being in the familiar Dave Mac
Motorsports Toyota-TRD Spike No. 08 this
weekend, the 16-year-old will wheel the No. 11b
entry normally driven by teammate Kaylee Bryson,
who will be in Micro Sprint action at the High
Banks Hustle at Southern Illinois Speedway.

After the Wednesday night opener was
rained out at Belleville, IL, McIntosh rebounded
from an early-race incident on Thursday at
Brownstown’s Fayette County Speedway to secure a
ninth-place finish. He then raced to a
fourth-place finish in a makeup feature at
Jacksonville Speedway on Friday before the
balance of the night as well as Saturday and
Sunday cards at Macon and Lincoln all fell
victim to rain.
“We were fighting some brake problems and
I just got in there and looped it at
Brownstown,” McIntosh comments.
“Jacksonville was heavy and a had a huge curb
right in the middle, there wasn’t a lot of room
to do much of anything.”
McIntosh will be looking for victory lane
with the POWRi West Midget League in Sapulpa and
Oklahoma City this weekend.
