Greenwood, Nebraska (July 22, 2017) – Tim McCreadie took the lead on lap 21 and never looked back as he went on to the biggest win of his career on Saturday night at I-80 Speedway. The New York native earned $53,000 for his win in the 7th Annual Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals. It was McCreadie’s fourth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season. The event was also co-sanctioned with the Lucas Oil Midwest Latemodel Racing Association.
Polesitter, Steve Francis led the first eleven laps of the race until former event winner Don O’Neal took over the top spot. Just a few circuits later, O’Neal and second-place running Brian Shirley made contact in the middle of the backstretch as both cars got into the wall. Both cars kept going as Shirley suffered minimal damage, but O’Neal’s nose-piece was heavily damaged and he started to lose spots in the running order.
McCreadie, in the Sweeteners Plus, Longhorn Chassis, surged underneath both O’Neal and Shirley to take the lead on lap 21.
