June 17, 2013- The past couple weeks at Brockville Speedway haven’t been good for Brian McDonald and the LaSalle Motorsports team. The damage from last week was bad enough that McDonald would arrive at the track with his own KB Motorsports ride while repairs were still underway on the LaSalle M96 car.
McDonald started the night out by winning his qualifying heat race, and returned to the pit area to fine tune the setup on his car in preparation for the 30 lap main event. Due to the track handicapping for lining up the feature and the bad luck from the past few weeks, McDonald lined up on the front row. At the drop of the green flag, Brian checked out on the field, gaining a huge advantage over the second place car and continued to build on it with each passing lap. With just five laps remaining the only caution of the race regrouped the field, but when the race resumed, he continued to set the pace and picked up his second win of the 2013 season.
“It feels good to get the win here at Brockville in our own car, but really we are all just one big team”, says McDonald referring to the KB Motorsports/LaSalle Motorsports teams. “It has been a tough couple weeks here at Brockville so its nice to get back to victory lane again”.
The previous night at Mohawk Raceway, McDonald started at the back of his 10 lap preliminary qualifying heat race, and moved to third place before the checkered flag. In the 25 lap feature he started from the outside of row six in the 12th starting position and moved forward at the drop of the green flag. By lap seven he was up to sixth, and continued to battle his way inside the top five, and was running in the fifth position at the halfway point. McDonald would cross the finish line with a respectable sixth place finish, placing him third overall in track points at Mohawk Raceway.
