McDOWELL & GIFFORD SCORE PODIUM FINISHES AT DUCK RIVER

1May 9th, 2013 - After being washed away by Mother Nature last weekend Team Dillon Racing traveled to Duck River Speedway (Wheel, Tennessee) on Thursday evening for a $4,000-to-win, Ray Cook's Spring Nationals event at the 1/4 mile oval with team drivers, Dale McDowell and Ryan Gifford in action.

The night started on a strong note as Gifford blazed to fast time honors in not only group but also overall to earn the pole position for the feature event. McDowell was second fastest in his group, which locked him into the fourth starting spot for the 40 lap finale. It would be Clanton, who jumped to the lead at the drop of the green flag with Gifford and McDowell in pursuit. A few laps later McDowell overtook Gifford for second as he set his sights on the leader. Lap 12 found Tim McCreadie race past both TDR competitors before inheriting the lead a few laps later, when Shane Clanton slowed with a flat.

Over the remainder of the event McDowell and Gifford ran second and third to the McCreadie before registering respective second and third place finishes at the checkered flag. Full results from the event are available at www.SouthernNationalsSeries.com.
