McIntosh Notches another Pair of Top Tens – POWRi Midget Double this Weekend
Lonnie Wheatley, BIXBY, Okla. (October 11, 2019) – Cannon McIntosh and the Dave Mac Motorsports Toyota-TRD Spike No. 08 Midget team continue to string together strong finishes with another pair of top-ten runs in Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League competition last weekend.
The 16-year-old from Bixby, OK, looks to extend the run of success with another pair of events in Illinois this weekend.
This weekend’s POWRi Midget action begins with a Saturday night card at Southern Illinois Raceway before moving on to Belle-Clair Speedway on Sunday.
Last weekend’s action included finishes of fourth and seventh at Illinois’ Jacksonville Speedway that propelled the young gun into the top five in POWRi National Midget League points.
“It was a good weekend for us, the consistency is coming along and hopefully we can keep it going this weekend,” McIntosh commented.
McIntosh began last weekend’s double at Jacksonville with a heat race win from the pole and then advanced from sixth to fourth in feature action.
“We got up to second, we ran away from Rico (Abreu) and we were running down (Logan) Seavey, then the car kind of went away over the last part of the race,” McIntosh recalls.
Drawing a higher number on Saturday, McIntosh raced from seventh to post a fourth-place heat race finish to land the seventh starting position for the main event. But a rain shower before the feature made for a heavy racing conditions.
“After that rain, we were really tight, it had us bound up,” McIntosh says.
With top-ten finishes in six of the last eight POWRi National Midget features, McIntosh will try to extend that with this weekend’s action in Marion and Belleville.
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: POWRi National Midget League at Southern Illinois Raceway (Marion, IL) on Saturday and Belle-Clair Speedway (Belleville, IL) on Sunday.
