1July 24th, 2013 - While Austin Dillon and Ty Dillon focused on getting their NASCAR Camping World Truck Series entries fine-tuned for Wednesday night's inaugural Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) Dale McDowell took his #17m Team Dillon Racing/Mastersbilt/Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model into battle in the opening round of the Dirt Late Model Invitational on Tuesday night. The event was highlighted by twenty Super Late Model pilots, who were invited to take part in a $2,000 to win feature on Tuesday and Wednesday evening.

For Tuesday's program McDowell blazed to fast time honors in qualifications with an 18.809 second lap around the 1/2 mile oval. However, with the top eight inverted for the feature, he started in the 8th position. In the main event Dale passed three cars to finish 5th behind race winner, Kent Robinson, Jeep Van Wormer, Tyler Reddick, and Duane Chamberlain.

Wednesday night found another $2,000-to-win race being held in front of a capacity crowd at Eldora Speedway. Dale finished 3rd in his heat race before starting 9th in the feature. In the main event McDowell enjoyed a solid run as he raced to a 4th place finish in the feature behind race winner, Jacob Hawkins, Duane Chamberlain, and Tyler Reddick.
