MCCREADIE RETURNS TO THE SPOTLIGHT AT THE DIRTCAR NATIONALS!
Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., ended an eight-year absence from Victory Lane during the UNOH DIRTcar Nationals with a memorable triumph on VP's Late Model Plus fuel in Wednesday night’s 40-lap DIRTcar UMP Super Late Model A-Main at Volusia Speedway Park.
Racing at the half-mile oval where he won his first-ever dirt Late Model feature in 2004, McCreadie outdueled Darrell Lanigan for the lead on lap 29 and then hung on for dear life, ultimately nipping Lanigan and Billy Moyer in a thrilling three-car finish to the week’s third and final DIRTcar UMP-sanctioned event.
McCreadie, 38, flashed under the checkered flag just 0.062 of a second ahead of Lanigan, who swapped the lead three times with his fellow World of Outlaws Late Model Series regular. Third-place Moyer was also part of the photo finish, just 0.119 of a second behind Lanigan.
McCreadie’s $10,000 triumph was the fifth of his career during the UNOH DIRTcar Nationals by Summit but first since he captured the WoO LMS finale of the 2005 racing extravaganza. He won three of the six dirt Late Model features contested that year. “It’s been since ’05 since I thought that we were a threat (at Volusia),” said McCreadie, whose career-first dirt Late Model win on Feb. 9, 2004, came in a DIRTcar UMP-sanctioned event at Volusia. “Tonight kind of felt like that (year).”
