Lonnie Wheatley, BIXBY, Okla. (June 28,
2019) – Cannon McIntosh and the Dave Mac
Motorsports Toyota-TRD Spike No. 08 team venture
to Illinois this weekend for a pair of events
including a NOS Energy Drink USAC National
Midget card on Saturday and then Lucas Oil POWRi
National Midget competition on Sunday.
With the planned Friday Illini triple
opener washed out at Jacksonville, the weekend
now kicks off with USAC action at Joliet’s Dirt
Oval at Route 66 on Saturday before moving on to
POWRi action at Lincoln Speedway on Sunday.
While running selected USAC events this
season with one win already to his credit,
McIntosh has broken into the top ten in points
in his first full POWRi National campaign.
“We just want to try to be consistent
every time out and hopefully come away with a
win or two along the way,” the 16-year-old from
Bixby, OK, commented.
McIntosh goes into the weekend after
posting a pair of runner-up finishes in POWRi
West League competition last weekend at Creek
County Speedway and Port City Raceway.
“I wish we could have had a win instead,
but they’re coming,” McIntosh commented.
It was seconds all around for last weekend
with a run from fifth to second in heat race
action at Creek County Speedway before advancing
from fourth to second in the main event.
The following night was similar at Port City
Raceway with McIntosh climbing from third to
second in heat race action and then sixth to
second int the feature.
“Creek County started out pretty dry but
they kept working on it and had it pretty good
for the feature, I closed in on Tyler (Thomas)
for the lead but couldn’t quite get there,”
McIntosh explains. “Then Port City is
tight, you can get to other cars but it’s hard
to pass them.”
McIntosh will be looking to crack victory
lane in Illinois this weekend.
Along with Toyota-TRD, other marketing
partners making the 2019 Cannon McIntosh slate
of events possible includes Sanders and
Associates, Car and Fleet, Mobil 1, Speedway
Engine Development, Best Graphics, Fieldhouse
Gear, Precision Inspection, Panels by Smoke,
Walker Performance, Sanders Wheels, American
Discount Brake and Muffler, D&N Fabrication,
Darling Ingredients, PJ’s and Hinds Family.
Up Next: USAC National
Midgets on Saturday at the Dirt Oval at Route 66
in Joliet, IL, and POWRi National League Midgets
