Donald McIntosh picked up a $4,000 paycheck at Tri-County.
What won the race: Donald McIntosh of Dawsonville, Ga., led all 40 laps Thursday at Tri-County Racetrack for a $4,000 Schaeffer's Spring Nationals victory. McIntosh took the checkers 2.688 seconds ahead of series points leader Dale McDowell while Casey Roberts was third.
Quotable: “We made the right call on changes and everything. We had a really good car," McIntosh said. "Any time you can outrun Dale (McDowell), you’ve done something. The track was pretty good tonight. It had a top and a bottom. I wasn’t so good in the bottom and around the lapped cars I was a little scared.”
Key notes: The victory was McIntosh's first Schaeffer's Spring Nationals victory of the season and his fourth career series victory. ... Nine of 14 starters completed 40 laps. … It was the opening night of the tour’s three-race weekend. … There have been four winners in six series races this season.
