Donald McIntosh (7) battles Cory Hedgecock (23) at Crossville.
What won the race: After a lead-swapping battle for the lead, polesitter Donald McIntosh of Dawsonville, Ga., pulled ahead of fellow front-row starter Mike Marlar of Winfield, Tenn., on lap 28 of 50 and paced the remaining distance for a $5,000 Southern Nationals Bonus Series victory at Crossville Speedway. Marlar and Cory Hedgecock both challenged McIntosh in the first series event at Crossville.
Quotable: "Man, that was something. I can't thank (Marlar) enough for racing me clean," McIntosh said. "I'm green on those slide jobs; that's something I've never had the opportunity to do. But man, what an awesome night."
Key notes: McIntosh scored his third special event victory of the season. ... He and Marlar traded multiple slide jobs while Hedgecock made noise on a pair of restarts in the second half of the race. ... The race was slowed by three cautions. ... A yellow flag flew on lap 19 when fourth-running Robby Moses slowed on the racetrack. ... Jason Welshan stopped on the track to draw a caution on lap 25. ... The final yellow flag waved on lap 35 when fifth-running Skylar Marlar spun. ... The race was originally scheduled for May 20 but moved back a day by weather.
Winner's sponsors: McIntosh drives a Blount Motorsports Rocket Chassis with a Vic Hill Racing Engine and sponsorship from Stowers (CAT) Machinery Corp., Arnold Trucking, Blount Excavating, Cherokee Millwright, Food City, GEO Services, Insurance Partners, Massey Electric, Tennessee RV, Turner Hydraulics, VP Race Fuels and Wine and Spirits Cellar.
