Matt McCall: NASCAR Cup Series crew chief enters North Carolina Late Model race
 Southern National Motorsports Park 
Posted by:  Bob Barney-RaceRap.com on November 25, 2017 at 7:59am

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series crew chief Matt McCall is returning to his Late Model Stock Car roots this weekend.

The 36-year-old crew chief for Jamie McMurray at Chip Ganassi Racing has filed an entry for the Thanksgiving Classic at Southern National Motorsports Park in Lucama, North Carolina. Before turning wrenches on cars at the highest level of the sport, McCall was a contender in NASCAR’s weekly racing series in the Carolinas and Virginias.

He is also the 2009 champion of the UARA Late Model touring series.

McCall is also a multiple time LMSC winner at Southern National Motorsports Park, most recently in May 2015 when he won a race that was held in memory of the late Jerry Moody. This season, he is once again driving for Wendell Davis, who served as his crew chief in 2009 during their championship campaign.

“Wendell and all these guys have worked hard on this car,” McCall said.   “We basically rebuilt it because it sat around all year.   We’re thrashing to get here.   The plan is to come back and see if we can get a trophy.”

His full-time job precludes him from racing most of the year, but the timing of this race is ideal since it is one week after the conclusion of the Cup Series season.

“Once you’re a short track racer, that’s all you want to do is short track race,” McCall remarked.   “I think, if you give me a chance to race, we’ll try to race for sure.”

Last season, McCall finished third in the Thanksgiving Classic to Tommy Lemons, Jr. and Brenden Queen.   He ran inside the top-five throughout much of the race, but a series of late race cautions and a late race restart ultimately kept him from being able to make the winning move.

This year, he expects things to be different.

“To me, it will be different this year,” McCall commented.   “The pace will be a lot different than the racing has been in previous years.   Hopefully I can time that out correctly and be good at the end of the race.”

The entire event will take place over the course of the full weekend. The 200-lap Thanksgiving Classic is set to go off around 2:30 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. The complete entry list, which includes several NASCAR weekly series notables can be found here.
