A number of drivers at the PRI Show being held in Indianapolis this weekend are announcing their plans for the 2018 Dirt Late Model season. Among those is Dawsonville, GA driver Donald McIntosh who has let it be known that he plans to compete for Rookie of the Year honors on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.
The announcement was made officially on the young driver’s Facebook page. Here is the text of the announcement:
“Donald McIntosh racing is proud to announce that we are hitting the road for 2018. Donald will be following the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and competing for the Rookie of the Year title.
More details to come as we wrap up our weekend in Indy at PRI. We are very excited about everything the 2018 season has to offer!”
McIntosh has raced for Maryville, Tenn. based Blount Motorsports since 2014. In that time, the 24-year-old driver won championships on the Spring Nationals and Iron-Man Late Models circuits and amassed numerous feature wins for team owner Larry Garner.
The former Rome Speedway track champion left BMS at the end of the 2017 campaign to seek other opportunities and to expand his racing efforts. He will pilot his family owned car in 2018. It has yet to be announced what chassis and engine combination the team will use.
