The weekend opened on Friday night at Cherokee Speedway (Gaffney, South Carolina) as twenty-eight competitors registered for battle. Dale began his night by finishing fourth in his heat race to lock into the fourteenth starting spot for the 50 lap feature. In the main event he advanced eight spots on his way to a sixth place finish.

Ty began his night by battling issues to a sixth place finish in his heat race, which pinned him starting fourth in a b-main. With the top three cars transferring to feature, Dillon earned the third and final transfer spot to lock into the twenty-first starting spot on the feature grid. He would go on to pass three cars to finish eighteenth in the finale.

On Saturday evening the team traveled to Wythe Raceway (Rural Retreat, Virginia) for another $10,000-to-win, LOLMDS event. Twenty-nine competitors entered the Blue Ridge 50, and the night started on a high note for McDowell, who blasted to the win in the fourth heat race to earn the fourth starting spot for the 50 lap feature. He battled in the top five for the duration of the feature before registering a third place finish behind race winner, John Blankenship, and Jonathan Davenport.

Ty Dillon piloted his #41 TDR/Warrior/ECR entry to a third place finish in his heat race, which locked him into the eleventh starting spot for the 50 lap feature. He would battle around mid-pack for much of the event before registering a sixteenth place finish in the final rundown.
