McCreadie Denies Owens $30,000 Victory In Nebraska; Marlar Takes $20,059 Home To West Tennessee

Sunday, September 20, 2020 - by Steve Hixson

Tim McCreadie (# 39) of Watertown, N.Y. beat Tennessean Jimmy Owens with four laps to spare Saturday night to win the I-80 Nationals worth $30,000. T-Mac's ceremoniously beating of his roof top was met by thunderous applause at I-80 Speedway as fans loudly approved of the fist pumped high in the air in Victory Lane.

McCreadie was the last of four different race leaders that had the current LODLM points leader Owens runner-up Saturday. Thirty-one starters crowded the race track for the 81 lap feature. 

West Tennessean Mike Marlar (# 157) of Winfield won Saturday's $20,059 annual Butterball Wooldridge Memorial race over Canadian Ricky Weiss at Richmond Raceway in Kentucky. Ryan King (# 1) of Seymour, Tn. won the $5,000 at the Lake Cumberland Speedway with the Iron-man series event Saturday. Signal Mountain's Heath Hindman finished 4th, Jason Welshan of Maryville was 6th and Scott Bloomquist was 7th overall at a track very similar to the defunct Cleveland Speedway.

Closer to the Tennessee Valley in nearby Dayton/Spring City just north of Chattanooga, Jesse Lowe (# 5J) of Crossville picked up another Late Model feature Saturday night at Mountain View Raceway. In Seymour, Tn. Zach Sise of Knoxville won the Crate/604 feature. Third starting Ronnie Johnson (# 6D) of Chattanooga won the $2,000 Topless Outlaw Late Model series feature at Tricounty Racetrack in Murphy, N.C. Saturday. In Alabama just Southwest of Chattanooga down I-59, Colten Jackson of Chatsworth won the Crate Late Model race and Ooltewah's Andy Pickelsimer (# 1) won the final Super Late Model feature of the season at Fort Payne Motor Speedway.
