August (By Tyson Graves)
Tim McCreadie is always a force to be reckoned with no matter what he drives. Tim has driven midgets, big block modifieds and many others. We found out early on that Tim would remain in the Longhorn house car but the Bradshears would be the team fielding his car in 2020. The change did not affect Tim in any way. Tim still found himself in victory lane in 2020.
Tim, already a winner in the North South 100 rolled into Florence Speedway back in August with momentum on his side. Great runs all season had put in contention for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series title. The way Tim would win the North South 100 this time around was nothing but a show. Starting back in the 20th position, we saw a typical Tim McCreadie do what he does. Tim drove his way through the field in a strategic manner. Not pushing the envelope too much put picking his spots and moving towards the front of the field. As the laps wound down it was McCreadie rising to the top of the heap. On lap 88 Tim would slip by Jimmy Owens and drive on to his second North South victory paying a cool $50,000.
There is no better celebration in all of dirt late model racing than watching Tim pound his fists on the top of his machine as he exits and the rooftop celebrations that shows his passion for the sport. Any time McCreadie wins is a show in victory lane, but the show he put on coming from twentieth to win the crown jewel at Florence makes this a moment for us to remember in 2020.
