McDowell wires Iron-Man field in Gobbler at Boyd's Speedway
Dale McDowell wrapped up his 2022 season on Saturday afternoon with a $10,000 victory aboard his Shane McDowell Racing/ E-Z-GO No. 17m Cometic Gaskets/ Klotz Synthetic Lubricants / Team Zero Race Cars/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.
McDowell’s ninth win of the year came in the Valvoline Iron-Man Late Model Series sanctioned Gobbler.
“I gave one away here (in September). I felt like I just wasn’t aggressive enough for the World of Outlaws race and the win got away from us,” McDowell said after claiming his fifth-career Gobbler triumph. “It’s hard. When you’re leading, you don’t know where to go, but it worked out for us tonight. Thank the good Lord for a good safe race, and thanks to everyone who supports our race program."
Shane McDowell Racing pilot, Dale McDowell, made the short trip to Boyd’s Speedway (Ringgold, Ga.) on Saturday afternoon to compete with the Valvoline Iron-Man Southern Series for the annual Gobbler.

He took the checkers 2.424 seconds ahead of Mack McCarter with Cory Hedgecock, Michael Page, and Michael Chilton completing the Top-5 finishers.
