McDowell Capitalizes on Eldora Weekend with $100,000 Dream Victory!
1June 7th, 2014 - Saturday night was a career outing for Dale McDowell as he piloted his #17m Team Dillon Racing/ Warrior/ ECR Racing Engine Super Late Model to the convincing win in the $100,000-to-win, 20th Annual Dirt Late Model Dream at Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio). Photo

Preliminary action found McDowell unable to advance to a transfer spot to the feature via heat race action, but a win in his consolation event positioned him starting 22nd on the grid for the 100 lap, mega-event. As the feature went green Dale began marching through the field, and quickly worked his way into the top ten.

McDowell turned up the heat further in the second half of the event as he began working his way through the top five. A lap 60 restart allowed Dale to work into the second spot, and he began pressure the leader, Scott Bloomquist, for the top spot. Exiting turn two on lap 72 McDowell was able to race to the lead and once out front never looked back on his way to the victory in the crown jewel. John Blankenship, Scott Bloomquist, Jimmy Owens, and Billy Moyer rounded out the top five finishers.
