Dale McDowell Competes in March Madness Weekend at Cherokee
1March 2nd, 2014 - Team Dillon Racing made a late week decision to stay close to home this weekend. Dale McDowell entered the annual March Madness event at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, South Carolina.

Eighteen competitors registered for night one of March Madness, the event boasted a $3,000 prize. Dale laid down the eight quickest lap in qualifying which locked him into the main event. Despite rough track conditions during the 30 lap feature, McDowell was able to secure a solid fourth place finish. Jason Hiett claimed the win followed by Casey Roberts, Brent Dixon, McDowell, and Dennis Franklin rounded out the top five.

The March Madness finale on Sunday boasted a $10,000 top prize and twenty-three drivers registered for battle. Dale posted the eighth quickest lap in time trials and went on to finish second in his heat race, earning him the eighth starting spot for the main event. McDowell had worked his way into the top five before his night came to an early end when contact with a lap car near halfway forced him to take the #17m pit side with heavy right front damage.
