McRee Checks Out At Mangolia
COLUMBUS, Miss. — Justin McRee won the Black Ice 40 for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Touring Division on Sunday night at Magnolia Motor Speedway. It was the third win of the season for J-Mac, and his second in as many nights driving the High Roller Race Cars Special.
McRee held off a mid-race challenge from two-time NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Champion David Earl Gentry, who took his Eads Farms/Hardy & Associates Warrior to the high side, and passed McRee for the lead on lap 21. McRee took back the lead one lap later, went to the high side of the track, and checked out on the field.
“We checked out early running the bottom of the track, but when I saw David Earl up on the high side, I knew it was time to get up there,” McRee said. “That’s where I need to be anyway because this is a High Roller Race Car that we built in our shop. We’ve been working with it all season, and I think we’ve got it where we want it. The next phase is to build some to sell. This car is for sale.”
Larry Harrod made a late-race charge to take the second spot in the Harrod Logging Special, and Mike Boland started 15th in the Lee Racing Trak-Star and finished third to earn the Hedman Husler of the Race Award. The Shaw Brothers claim the next two spots.
Kyle Shaw finished fourth in the Knock ‘Em Out Kennels Trak-Star, and Jeremy Shaw was fifth.
