MCCREADIE NABS 'W' AT UTICA ROME
Tim McCreadie (Watertown, NY) made it a repeat performance from a year ago on Wednesday Night in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event at Utica-Rome Speedway. McCreadie, running on VP Racing Fuels, started fourth and grabbed the lead on lap nine from Earl Pearson Jr.
McCreadie then held off a furious challenge from Jimmy Owens to capture the $10,000 victory. Owens charged from his ninth starting spot and pulled even with McCreadie several times in the race, but couldn't clear him for the lead. Gregg Satterlee of came from the 18th starting position to finish third, for his best career LOLMDS finish. Pearson was fourth. Twenty-third starting Don O'Neal rounded out the top five.
Pearson started from the outside of the front row, and led the first eight circuits of the race. He was looking to win his first series race since July of 2010, but he couldn't hold off McCreadie. "T-Mac" then had to withstand heavy traffic in front of him and a hard-charging Owens as the two went tooth-and-nail over the last half of the race. Owens pulled even with McCreadie in the turns, but McCreadie held the advantage at the flagstand.
"This is a great win for this team, they all work so hard. I have got some of my dad's crew helping tonight. I want to thank Sweeteners Plus, Pro Power Racing Engines, and Warrior Race Cars for all of their help. To win again in front of these fans, it's just awesome," said the 38-year-old, who became the 11th different winner on the series tour in 2012.
