“Since we put together Blount Motorsports in 2006 all three of our drivers, Tommy Kerr, Billy Ogle Jr. and Donald have won championships. They have been a credit to our sponsors, our fans and our team,” said Larry Garner. “Donald did a good job for us and we feel like both he and Blount Motorsports have grown in the three years he has been here.

We hate to see him leave, but understand his decision and wish him success in all his future endeavors.”

“It was an emotional day for sure. We have spent a lot of time together over the last three years and leaving the team is like leaving family,” said McIntosh, “Sad about leaving, but excited about what is coming up. I have wanted to run a touring series since I started racing Late Models and we are going to take a shot at the Lucas Oil Series in 2018.

I want to thank Larry Garner, David Bryant, Tommy Kerr and everyone at Blount Motorsports. It was a great experience and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

David Bryant, who has been the crew chief for all three drivers, is turning the page and ready to start chapter four with Casey Roberts.

“I really thought we were going to win the race, but Overton took a gamble on tires and it paid off,” said Bryant. “Donald did a good job like he has done for us the whole time he has been here. At the beginning of the year we set our goals and the only one we didn’t realize was winning the Spring Nationals. I wish him a lot of luck with the Lucas deal.”

The Iron-Man Leftover 50 at 411 Motor Speedway Saturday afternoon will be the start of what everyone hopes to be a long and winning relationship with Casey Roberts behind the wheel. Drivers’ meeting for Saturday’s race is 2 PM.

Hagar Records Nine Feature Victories During Stout Season

Inside Line Promotions - MARION, Ark. (Nov. 21, 2017) - Derek Hagar visited Victory Lane nine times during a season that was hampered by wet weather.

"It was a good year overall," he said. "We had way too many rainouts, but there's nothing we can do about that. We tried to make the most of the opportunities we got to race and I think we did that for the most part."

Hagar scored six USCS Series triumphs and he won an ASCS Red River Region and ASCS Mid-South Region co-sanctioned event and one with the ASCS Warrior Region. He was victorious in Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee, Missouri and Georgia.

"We take a lot of pride in being able to win at a lot of different tracks," he said. "All nine of our wins this season were at different tracks and I think it's a boost to know that you can contend for wins anywhere you go."

His final victory of the season came during his final night of sprint car competition on Oct. 21 at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., where he claimed the opening race of the Fall Nationals before charging from 22nd to fourth in the second A Main.

"It's always great to be able to close out the season with momentum," he said. "We've won during the final night of the season three of the last four years and it certainly is a boost going into the offseason."

Hagar had other special moments this season outside of the wins and championship. He earned a career-best seventh-place finish during the Short Track Nationals, he was the Race of Champions winner during the Ralph Henson Memorial and he recorded a runner-up result during a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour show.

"It was a great year for our team and we owe a lot of gratitude to the sponsors and fans who support us," he said. "Thank you to everyone who has backed our team and to my family and crew for always being there. We'll take a little breather this offseason and prepare hard for 2018 because it'll be here before we know it."


44 races, 9 wins, 28 top fives, 33 top 10s, 36 top 15s, 38 top 20s

Skinner Produces Pair of USCS Speedweek Wins to Highlight 2017

Inside Line Promotions - MARION, Ark. (Nov. 21, 2017) - Marshall Skinner scored a pair of USCS Speedweek victories to highlight his 2017 campaign.

"I felt like I had a pretty decent year," he said. "We had a couple of wins and a lot of top fives. We were a contender wherever we showed up."

Skinner was victorious on May 26 at Hattiesburg Speedway in Hattiesburg, Miss., during the opening round of the USCS Speedweek.

"Me and Derek (Hagar) were battling for the lead in traffic," he said. "We were side by side and lapped cars crashed in front of us at Hattiesburg. I made it through there and Derek didn't so we had luck on our side."

Six days later Skinner stood in Victory Lane at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, Ala.

"At Talladega I passed Derek on the first lap and followed Tim (Crawley) for a while," he said. "I think his left rear tire was going down and on a restart he bobbled. I drove under him and never saw anyone again. That was pretty cool because my truck broke down in Alabama about two hours from the track. My uncle drove to me and brought me his toterhome. We got to the track late and missed hot laps. That was pretty cool to overcome that and win."

Skinner finished the season with 16 top fives and 23 top 10s with a few more near misses of earning wins.

"There were a lot of races I should have won, but the cards didn't play in my favor," he said. "However, any time I can roll the race car in the box and do decent at the pay window it's a successful night."

Additionally, Skinner placed in the top five in the championship standings for the USCS Mid-South Region and at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., and in the top 10 in the ASCS Mid-South Region and at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., despite missing races with both series and at both tracks.

"I want to thank my wife, Kristy, and all of our sponsors for their continued support," he said. "We appreciate everyone who helps out our team. We really enjoy racing and are looking forward to what 2018 entails."


36 races, 2 wins, 16 top fives, 23 top 10s, 26 top 15s, 29 top 20s
