February 1, 2019 - Donald McIntosh Refocused and Reloaded for 2019 Campaign
1Donald McIntosh is back to a familiar place in 2019. He's rejoined forces with Tennessee's Blount Motorsports. The combination, who enjoyed considerable success together when they last raced together during the 2016-2017 season, is preparing for another successful campaign in 2019.

After a one-year absence, McIntosh returned to the driver's seat of the Blount Motorsports/ Rocket XR1/ Vic HIll Racing Engine Super Late Model with a pair of late-season events at 411 Motor Speedway (Seymour, Tennessee).

"We tried some different stuff with our own operation the first half of 2018, and it just didn't pan out," McIntosh said. "I was a little apprehensive before going up to 411 (Leftover event in November 2018) not knowing exactly how things would unfold at the track, but after about 20 minutes in the pits every thing was fine. David (Bryant) and I were back on the same page,” said Donald. “All of us get along and for the most part. David and I agree on the car. When we aren’t on the same page it doesn’t take much to get there.

"I am really excited about the upcoming season. I think that we can win some races and have a good time doing it.”

Mechanical issues sidelined McIntosh while running second in the Leftover event at 411 Motor Speedway on November 25. He then bounced back to advance from the 15th-starting position to finish second in the facilities' annual Hangover event on December 29.

The team will enter their first events of 2019 on February 11-16 at Volusia Speedway Park during the 48th annual DIRTcar Nationals. The week opens with a pair $7,000-to-win, UMP DIRTcar Late Model events, and then ends with four-straight World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series races.
