Columbus, Mississippi –July 7, 2012-
Don O’Neal of Martinsville, IN dominated the Columbus Convention Center and Visitors Bureau “Clash at the Mag” on Saturday Night at Magnolia Motor Speedway in his Weld Racing Wide 5 XL wheel equipped Late Model. O’Neal started ninth and took the lead from Wendell Wallace of Batesville, AR on lap 20 and stayed in the lead to capture the $20,000 to win Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event.
“The car was terrific, to get the win here in Jay Dickens’ home area is special, he does such a great job with our engine program, thanks to all my crew. I don’t what to say! We struggled a little bit in qualifying and in the heat race, we worked all night long and we went out to hot lap tonight, I knew we going to have a good car,” said O’Neal, who turns 48 on July 10th.
