McReynolds Backs Up Win With Second-Place Finish at Dillon
Sep 23, 2009 - updated Sep 23rd, 2009 9:55pm

Mooresville, NC. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:September 23, 2009

18-Year-Old Gets Shuffled Back Early, Battles Back to Runner-Up at Checkers

When Brandon McReynolds and the #28 Airplus Insoles / Team McReynolds Dodge visited Dillon Motor Speedway in Dillon, SC earlier this year, he carried the victor’s trophy home to Mooresville, NC after a dominating performance. So one would think anything but a win in his second appearance at Dillon this season would be a huge disappointment to the 18-year-old driver.

However, that was not the case in the UARA 150 on Saturday night at Dillon. McReynolds came home with a second-place finish and was happy about the performance, considering the jump in improvement he and the team had from the start of the day to the checkered flag.

“I’m really happy with our run because we were not very good Saturday morning when we started practice. The guys (Crew Chief Nick Hutchins, Adam Fournier, Chris Howell and Brandon

Laws) worked on the car and got it where it needed to be by the end of the night,” said McReynolds. “It was a solid run for the Airplus Insoles Dodge. We got another top-five finish and showed, once again, that we are one of the cars to beat out here week in and week out. Hopefully, we’ll head off to Hickory and get us another trophy soon enough.”

McReynolds’ #28 Airplus Insoles / Team McReynolds Dodge was fastest in open practice on Friday at Dillon, but come Saturday morning, the team tried a few things and struggled to find the handle on the car. After qualifying 10th, McReynolds was ready to turn things around and focused on getting the car to the front.

Just a few laps into the race, Brandon got run into by another competitor and shuffled out of the groove. It made McReynolds’ run to the front even tougher.

“We were on the outside line since we started 10th and got hit and shuffled back to 13th or 14th,” added McReynolds. “After that, I was determined to get this car back to the front of the field. So I just started digging hard and making good, clean passes when the right opportunity presented itself. I wasn’t going to do anything to take us out of the running. I wanted to be there at the end.”

By lap 60, McReynolds was up to the fifth position. However, around the faster cars, McReynolds knew positions would be harder to come by in the last half of the event.

“Once you get into the top-five, you have to spend a lot more time working guys over. Up front, there were four really good cars and we were all pretty equal. I just wanted to ride and be there for the end of the race. I didn’t think we had the best car, but we were one of the three or four best cars there. And you never know what can happen in one of these races.”

On the final lap, the two leaders made contact racing for the win, with one spinning directly in front of Brandon. McReynolds made a solid move around the spinning car and crossed the line third, just behind friend Kyle Grissom. However, UARA penalized the race winner and moved him to the end of the lead lap in the final running order, handing Brandon second-place.

“We were right there at the end,” added McReynolds. “I never thought we would get up to second at the end of the night after the way our day started and after getting shuffled back right there at the beginning of the race. But the team never gave up and I never gave up behind the wheel, so we persevered. It was a great night.”

McReynolds has two victories on the season, along with five top-fives, eight top-10s and has led a total of 265 laps in 13 starts thus far in 2009. With his second-place finish at Dillon, Brandon jumped to fourth in point standings and sits only 20 points out of third and 191 points out of first.

Brandon and the #28 Airplus Insoles / Team McReynolds Dodge are testing at Martinsville Speedway on Wednesday, September 23 in preparation for the annual Bailey’s 300 at the famed half-mile. The Baileys 300, which is widely considered the biggest of all races for Late Model Stock Cars, is set for Sunday, October 4th. The next UARA-event for McReynolds will be October 18th at Hickory Motor Speedway. Brandon finished 11th at the series’ first event at Hickory back in June.
