McIntosh Controls Opening Night In Tulsa

TULSA, Okla. — Fending off the field is one thing, but doing so with a failing right-rear tire made Cannon McIntosh’s victory during Monday’s Cummins Qualifying Night preliminary feature even sweeter at the 37th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals presented by General Tire. “That yellow coming out, I didn’t know if it was a good or bad thing, not knowing how many laps were left, but I had zero confidence going into the restart. I could hear the right rear just rolling over in the corner, and I could feel it every caution lap we rolled, but thankfully there were only three to go,” explained McIntosh. 08 led from start to finish but was not without pressure as Chris Windom stalked McIntosh throughout. 89 at bay through the start, McIntosh fended off Windom through restarts on lap four and lap seven, all while Windom was under attack from Ryan Timms. Windom closed the gap gradually, but a lap-28 yellow flag erased it.
