BIXBY, OKLA. (March 2, 2020) – A year ago when the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midgets last visited the Southern Illinois Center, it was Dave Mac Motorsports standing victorious with the loot in hand. This weekend, the Bixby, Okla. based squad returns to Du Quoin, Ill. with a pair of new drivers in the seat, but the same goal in mind.
The departure of house driver Cannon McIntosh, who moved to Keith Kunz-Curb/Agajanian Motorsports with backing from Toyota Racing Development, left a hole in the driver lineup that was quickly filled by two “Sooner State” gassers that are chomping at the bit to get behind the wheel.
Ace McCarthy of Tahlequah, Okla. has teamed up with Dave Mac Motorsports for a full-season campaign which kickstarts this weekend at Du Quoin in the No. 28 Spike/Toyota entry. A multi-time winner with the POWRi West Midgets, McCarthy broke through for his first-career POWRi National Midget League victory last summer and enters 2020 with a pep in his step and a newfound focus on competing for national championships with Dave Mac Motorsports.
“I couldn’t be more excited to make this jump with Dave [McIntosh], Cody [Cordell] and all the supporters that help make Dave Mac Motorsports run,” said McCarthy. “It takes a lot of great folks to make a touring deal like this go and I’m looking forward to being a part of it and hopefully doing my part to deliver them strong results and a championship this season.”
Piloting a second Dave Mac Motorsports ride this weekend at Du Quoin will be Trey Robb of Newcastle, Okla. A veteran of the micro sprint ranks, Saturday will mark “Trey-Way’s” long awaited return to midget racing when he drives the same No. 08 Spike/Toyota that won last year’s running.
“This will be my first midget race in 10+ years and I can’t think of a better car to be driving,” noted Robb. “Thanks Dave and Cody for putting together a top notch car and giving me this opportunity.”
The action all begins this Saturday, March 7 when the USAC National Midgets race in Du Quoin, Ill. at the Southern Illinois Center. For fans unable to attend, you can watch a LIVE pay-per-view at http://www.floracing.com.
