Dale McDowell Snaps World of Outlaws Winless Streak with Duck River Win
Holds off three-time series champ Lanigan to score the win
WHEEL, Tenn. - April 8, 2016 - Dale McDowell hopped out of his car, pumping his fist to a near-capacity crowd Friday night at Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, Tenn. This is a feeling of accomplishment he has not felt in 11 years.
McDowell snapped his winless streak with the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series, a streak dating back to May 20, 2005 when he was last victorious at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex in Peebles, Ohio. But, this was not an easy feat, as the 26-car feature was one filled with many battles.
"The draw was big for us tonight," said McDowell, whose No. 17M Bad Boy Off Road Team Dillon Racing Inc. car started the race in the top spot. "It's was awfully racey, especially in lapped traffic."
