PORT ROYAL, PA (August 27, 2020) – Tim McCreadie led wire-to-wire on Thursday Night at Port Royal Speedway to score his fifth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of 2020. He did so in dominating fashion on the first of three nights of racing at “The Palace of Speed.”


Kyle Strickler equaled his best career LOLMDS finish by placing second ahead of current point leader, Jimmy Owens and Chris Ferguson. Open-wheel standout Kyle Larson came home fifth in his dirt late model debut.


While McCreadie went unchallenged, the race for second on back was hotly contested as Strickler moved into second on lap 18 but was too far behind McCreadie to make a late-race challenge. Larson held the third spot until the final corner when Owens got underneath of him. Larson got into the frontstretch wall and that enabled Owens and Ferguson to get by him at the finish.


McCreadie has now made his way to Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the third time in his last five starts.  “This is a new car. I think we have three wins, a second and a third with it. This is as close to home as I get. You could tell these fans are excited. I am happy. I hope I didn’t make it too bad to watch, but it was fun. It’s hard to lead here. I just figured I would live on  the cushion and if I got beat, that was the way it was going to be.”


Strickler finished second to equal his runner-up finish in the Show-Me 100 last month. “We were on a little tire strategy tonight. We have struggled the last couple of weeks. This was a bare frame on Monday at Longhorn and we worked our tails off to get here and it paid off.  We were definitely a lot better tonight than we have been recently.”


Owens was thankful for another podium finish. “We had a second place car tonight. We didn’t have anything for McCreadie. I chose the inside on the last restart and I thought I could get a run on him [McCreadie] and maybe pull a slider or something on him gong into one. The high-side was the place to be and then we made that last lap run to get third.”


The winner’s Donald and Gena Bradsher Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and is sponsored by Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas, Bilstein Shocks, VP Fuels, Sweeteners Plus, and D&E Marine.


Completing the top ten were Hudson O’Neal, Mason Zeigler, Brandon Sheppard, Shane Clanton, and Josh Richards.
