McCreadie ends season with third-place finish

Lucas Oil Model

GREENWOOD, Neb. — Watertown native Tim McCreadie made a daring pass of series points leader Jimmy Owens with two laps to go to win the 80-lap Al Belt Custom Homes I-80 Nationals Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series race Saturday night at I-80 Speedway.

McCreadie passed Josh Richards on lap 59 to set up his late charge at Owens. He bolted ahead of Owens and picked up the victory by .872 seconds and the $30,000 first-place prize. Ricky Thornton Jr., Richards, and Kyle Strickler rounded out the top five.

The win was McCreadie’s 21st on the circuit and the fourth since Aug. 14.
