Dale McDowell takes the checkers for a $10,000 payday at Boyd's.
What won the race: Home-track driver Dale McDowell of Chickamauga, Ga., led all 40 laps from the outside front row Saturday at Boyd's Speedway, cruising to $10,000 victory in the 34th annual Gobbler. McDowell notched his second Valvoline Iron-Man Racing Series victory of the season and third of his career in taking the checkers ahead of Mack McCarter.
Quotable: “I gave one away here (in September). I felt like I just wasn’t aggressive enough for the World of Outlaws race,” McDowell said. “It’s hard. When you’re leading, you don’t know where to go, but it worked out for us tonight."
Key notes: Utilizing Jensen Ford as his crew chief this weekend, Mack McCarter finished 2.424 seconds back. ... Cory Hedgecock advanced six positions and finished third. ... Filling-in for injured Dalton Cook, Michael Page gained nine spots and finished fourth in the No. 44D. ... Polesitter Michael Chilton finished fifth. He enters next weekend's season finale at 411 (Tenn.) Motor Speedway with an insurmountable points lead, as he seeks his second career Iron-Man Racing Series championship. ... Cameron Weaver advanced six spots and finished sixth. ... Ray Cook finished ninth in the Joe Denby-owned Capital Race Car. ... Jimmy Owens gained 10 positions and finished 11th in the Richard Austin-owned Robert's Trucking Capital Race Car. ... Saturday's feature, the penultimate stop on the 2022 Iron-Man Southern Series schedule, was slowed by two cautions and lasted 16 minutes, with 19 competitors completing 40 laps.
