Drown tops Sunoco American Late Model Series at Attica Raceway Park
by Brian Liskai
ATTICA, OH (May 27) - In the Sunoco American Late Model Series action, “Hammer Down” Doug Drown from Wooster, Ohio would hold off Matt Irey for his third win of the season at Attica. It is his 16th career victory at the track. But the night wasn’t easy as mechanical issues early had the team scrambling to make repairs.
“We’ve won four out of the six races we’ve run. This Swartz Race Car is phenomenal. I don’t know why other people haven’t switched to them sooner. They are definitely a pretty darn good piece. I went a little harder on tires than the other guys,” said Drown beside his Hall’s Auto Sales, Kar Konnections, Malcuit Racing Engines, Nationwide Vehicle Protection, Wooster Glass backed #240.
“The guys worked their butts off. We broke a header in hot laps. We welded one up…thanks to Byron Reed and Mike Bores for letting us borrow their welder. My son brought me another one from the house…it’s been an adventure in the pits for us. But the car was just phenomenal,” Drown added.
Drown and Devin Shiels led the field to green for the 30-lap late model feature. Drown would grab the lead over Matt Irey, Shiels, Brad Malcuit, Rob Anderzack, Ryan Markham and Mike Bores before a caution was displayed for a Larry Bellman, Nate Potts tangle.
On the restart Drown would be hounded by Irey with Shiels, Malcuit, Markham and Bores waging a terrific battle for third. With five laps in Drown had pulled away slightly from Irey with Shiels, Malcuit, Markham, Bores and Jon Henry in pursuit.
The final caution flew on lap 15 for a multi-car crash. This time on the restart Drown couldn’t shake Irey as the pair would run nose to tail the last half of the race. Meanwhile, the race for third continued to entertain between Shiels, Malcuit, Bores, Markham and Henry.
Henry was the car on the move as he drove into sixth with six laps remaining and into fourth by lap 26. No one was going to touch Drown as he drove to the win over Irey, Henry, Shiels and Bores.
“I had a little bit of a respect issue…on those restarts they hit me in the rear a little bit. I don’t understand. That’s why I locked them up. If you can’t pass on the race track you shouldn’t have to wreck somebody. I’m a little upset about that. But other than that the car was phenomenal,” Drown said.
