Don will be seeking his fifth career ‘Jackson 100’ title this weekend when the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series roars into Brownstown Speedway to sanction a pair of lucrative races. A $10,000 top prize will be on the line for the Super Late Models on Friday night, September 25, while Saturday’s annual ‘Jackson 100’ will boast a $15,000 payday. Don’s lone appearance this year actually came behind the wheel of the MasterSbilt House Car at Brownstown back on June 6, as he placed sixth in a $2,200 to win special event at the 1/4-mile fairgrounds oval.
“I’m really excited to return to racing this weekend at Brownstown,” quoted O’Neal via telephone today. “I kind of had my mind made up after leaving the (Clint) Bowyer deal that I was just going to race here and there and go into semi-retirement mode. With all of this time off and only racing once this year; however, I really started to get the itch and I am ready to get back behind the wheel. I’m thankful for my relationship with Tader and Jerilyn (Masters), as well as with Jim Beeman, and look forward to racing with them for the rest of this year and kicking off 2021 down south during Speedweeks!”
While the schedule is currently up in the air for the rest of 2020, Don and the MasterSbilt House Car team are already making plans to attend “Speedweeks” next year and run a full schedule of selected events in 2021.
