Story By: LUCAS OIL LATE MODEL DIRT SERIES – BATAVIA, OH – The 2020 Arizona Sport Shirts Crown Jewel Cup – Presented by DirtonDirt.com goes to Tim McCreadie of Watertown, NY, after it slipped from him in 2019 by way of a tie breaker.
The mini-series within the full Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series schedule consisted of events that paid a minimum of $15,000 to the winner.
“This is really cool to win, especially with the new Paylor Motorsports team, owned by Donald and Gena Bradsher. Crown Jewel events are important to our sport and it’s special to know we are able to ‘show up’ when money is on the line. I also want to thank Arizona Sport Shirts and DirtonDirt.com for giving us this opportunity for additional money,” McCreadie stated.
He also wanted to thank Longhorn Chassis, Cornett Racing Engine, Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas, Bilstein Shocks, VP Fuels, Sweeteners Plus, D&E Marine, and Racing for Heroes.
