Ryan Gifford Places Twelfth in Bonus Series Feature at Boyd's

1March 21st, 2015 - A busy weekend for Team Dillon Racing saw a trio of drivers competing at Boyd's Speedway (Ringgold, Georgia).

Dale McDowell and Ryan Gifford both entered the Southern Nationals Bonus Series season opener, which boosted a $4,000 top prize.

McDowell posted the second quickest lap in his group during time trails and went on to win the Dash, earning him the pole position for the 40-lap finale. Dale took the lead at the drop of the green flag and set the pace until lap eighteen when Randy Weaver went around as the duo battled heavy lapped traffic. McDowell looped his #17m entry in turn four on lap 24 and would retire from the balance of the event.

Gifford raced to a third place finish in his heat race to lock into the sixteenth starting position on the feature grid. Ryan battled around mid-pack for much of the event before crossing the finish line in twelfth.

Kate Dallenbach raced into the Crate Late Model feature via preliminary action, earning the thirteenth starting spot on the grid. Unfortunately, she was involved in an incident that brought her night to a disappointing early end.
