DALE MCDOWELL FINISHES SECOND AT WYTHE
1August 18th, 2012 - Team Dillon Racing made the trip to Batesville Motor Speedway (Locust Grove, Arkansas) over the weekend for the 20th Annual COMP Cams Topless 100 with Dale McDowell, who was the 2004 event champion, in action. Forty-four Super Late Models registered for battle in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) sanctioned program, and after qualifying tenth fastest in his group he started fifth in the second heat race. He would go on to advance to a second place finish, which earned him the seventh starting spot in the 100 lap finale on Saturday evening.

In front of the SPEED TV cameras and a huge crowd McDowell pursued his second event crown in the $40,000-to-win, 100 lap finale on Saturday night. However, bad luck would strike Dale on lap 24 as he slowed entering turn one with mechanical issues. As he headed to the high side of the corner he would receive heavy contact from behind from Tyler Reddick, which resulted in a great deal of damage to his #17m Team Dillon Racing Warrior Race Car, and ended his night. McDowell was credited with an 18th place finish. Full results are available at www.LucasDirt.com.
