National Open Notes: Macedo’s Drive, Sweet’s Consistency

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — The 61st Champion Racing National Open has come and gone, marking the end of the season of weekly racing at Williams Grove Speedway and the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series’ final trip of the year to the half-mile dirt oval. With rain putting a lid on Friday’s main event, track and series officials planned to run the 25-lap event prior to the National Open finale. As a result, the 25-lapper was moved to the end of the program, 30 minutes after the conclusion of the National Open. After starting 12th in the 40-lap feature, Macedo vaulted inside the top 10 quickly. “Killer for points, obviously, and then running in the top 10 at the National Open and end up blowing, not very ideal. The majority of the chatter on the PA speaker was the possibility of Pittman, a part-time racer, finally breaking through at the National Open. Pittman did, however, leave the door open to another National Open chase.
