BROCKVILLE, ON – A very busy 2012 racing season came to an end this past weekend for Brian McDonald as he competed at Brockville Speedway for there season ending 1000 Islands RV DIRTcar Northeast Fall Nationals Weekend. McDonald planned to race the LaSalle Motorsports M96 car on Saturday during the 358 Modified event, and again on Sunday with the Big Block Modified Super DIRTcar Series.
After timing fastest in his time trial group, McDonald started his eight lap heat race from the front row, and finished with a solid second place finish, placing him into the redraw for a top 10 starting position. A sixth place draw put him on the outside of row three to start the 100 lap Mr. DIRTcar 358 Modified main event. He continued in the top 10 for the first 37 laps of the race before drifting high off the track in turn three and four, and would have to restart from the tail of the field. By lap 75 he had worked his way back into the top ten, and was looking strong until a flat tire sent McDonald back to the pits. Once again he returned on the lead lap, and drove back into the top ten in the closing laps with a solid ninth place finish.
“We had a great season and I really have to thank Brian and this dedicated M96 crew for all their hard work during the season”, says car owner Lori LaSalle. “We found some things with this new car towards the end of the season, and it looked really good on the track today, coming from the back twice, including a right rear flat late in the race and we were still able to get a top ten finish”.
