At Eldora, McCarl started things out with the sixth quick time of the night. After the heat race, the Altoona, Iowa driver noticed a problem with the motor and went back to the pits for an engine change. “We were lucky enough to have more than one motor on hand,” he said. “We went out again and the car was perfect.”

McCarl had a plan to get to the front of the pack on the restart. “I wanted to get by Dale Blaney, because he is so good on the Eldora Speedway,” he said. “I was able to do that on the start and we were in the top five around lap six. The track was perfect and so was the car. I ran the bottom, went up to the middle and ended up on top. I was having a blast.”

On lap 23, McCarl made his winning move. “During the yellow, I knew it would be tough to pass,” he said. “In the end I was able to pass everyone and won by a straightaway. It was always a dream to win at Knoxville, Williams Grove and Eldora and this was very special to me.”

McCarl uses K&N products. “In order to compete at the level that Big Game Motorsports does in the world of winged sprint car racing we require the utmost performance from our engine program,” said Rich Toews, Big Game Motorsports Team Operations Manager. “To insure that our engines make the most horsepower possible, and to protect our engine investments, we count on K&N air filters. They deliver the performance we need, and on top of it all, they are easily maintained and last us an entire season competing at dirt tracks across the United States."

McCarl’s next race with the World of Outlaws is the US36 Raceway near Osborn, Missouri.
