Dale McDowell takes NDRL field at Smoky Mountain Speedway to school during Tip-Off Opener

By Chris Tilley, CT Marketing

 

MARYVILLE, TN (March 7, 2014)—Dale McDowell may hold driving schools when he’s not behind the wheel of his # 17M Super Late Model, but on Friday Night at Smoky Mountain Speedway, he took the field to school during the Nationals Dirt Racing League-sanctioned Tennessee Tip-Off Classic.

 

The Chickamauga, GA driver claimed $7,500 for the event win after leading all 40 circuits, which ran caution free, for his first NDRL victory. McDowell came to victory lane while driving the Team Dillon Racing, Klotz Synthetics, National Boiler Service, Bad Boy Buggy and Cometic Gaskets sponsored ERC-powered Warrior Race Car.

 

Runner-up Chris Madden passed polesitter Ray Cook on the 17th lap and went on to finish second behind McDowell in the Century Plastics, Hamrick’s of Gaffney and Cushman Paint & Body sponsored Clements Racing Engines powered Bloomquist Team Zero Race Car. Cook finished third while driving the Tommy Pope Construction, A+ Moving & Storage sponsored Jay Dickens powered MasterSbilt Race Car.

 

The NDRL Late Models ($12,500 to win), along with the Crate Late Models and Sportsman hit the track on Saturday Night at Smoky Mountain Speedway for Night # 2 of the Tennessee Tip-Off Classic.

Madden Masters NDRL-Tennessee Tip Off Night #2 at Smoky Mountain

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Madden Masters NDRL-Tennessee Tip Off Night #2 at Smoky Mountain

By Chris Tilley, CT Marketing

MARYVILLE, TN (March 8, 2014)–Chris Madden likes Saturday night racing with the NDRL.

The Gray Court, SC driver took the lead from Billy Moyer Jr. on lap 44 to go on to win the National Dirt Racing League-sanctioned Tip Off Classic and $12,500 for the victory at Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, TN a week after he won the Bama Bash at East Alabama. Madden drove the Century Plastics, Hamrick’s of Gaffney sponsored Clements powered Bloomquist Team Zero race car to the victory over hard-charging Mike Marlar of Winfield, TN who started tenth.

One caution flag slowed the race as Casey Roberts slowed on lap 13 in turn two.

Pole sitter Moyer Jr and Jonathan Davenport brought the field of 25 to life for the start of the 60-lapper with Moyer Jr jumping to the early lead. On the 14th lap Madden would take the second spot away from Davenport and take Scott Bloomquist with him for third. Davenport would drop to fourth after that restart.

Madden would look underneath Moyer for several laps but would become the factor and grab the lead away on the 44th circuit. Tenth starting Mike Marlar became the factor for second spot and would grab it away from Scott Bloomquist with five laps remaining. Lapped traffic would be enough to keep Marlar away from Madden as he went on to win his second NDRL event of the season picking up $29,517 in win money in less than a week.
