Dale McDowell Nabs Top Five in 27th Annual Dirt Late Model Dream!
(June 13, 2021)
A very lucrative week at Eldora Speedway took place from June 9-12, as a pair of 'Dirt Late Model Dreams' were held at the storied Rossburg, Ohio oval. On Wednesday evening in his Twin 25 preliminary program, Dale McDowell ran third in his heat race prior to advancing up to seventh in his $10,000 to win feature. At the "Big E" on Thursday, Dale ran second in heat race action and later moved past a handful of competitors during the 100-lap headliner to land in the fourth finishing position behind only $127,000 victor Brandon Overton, Tim McCreadie, and Kyle Bronson!

The 26th Annual 'Dirt Late Model Dream' then took center stage at the 1/2-mile, high-banked speedplant over the weekend. In Friday's $10,000 to win Twin 25, Dale grabbed the fourth transfer spot through his heat race before running thirteenth in the 25-lap sprint. All eyes in the pit area were then focused on capturing the $126,000 payday on Saturday evening. "MacDaddy" finished fourth in his stacked heat race, won his B-Main, and later blitzed up to tenth by the conclusion of the 100-lapper.
