Mitch is King!

Plymouth, WI - Mitch McGrath returned to the Gary's Old Fashioned Mix Victory Lane, as he led all 30 laps of the DiscountShopTowels.com 30 at Plymouth Dirt Track Racing to win the race and be crowned King. McGrath won his heat race and had the most passing points of the 28 cars on hand, earning him the first re-draw spot for position in the A-Main. McGrath pulled the lowest number, putting him on the pole for the A-Main. McGrath led from the beginning, pulling out ahead of Paul Parker, Brett Swedberg and Troy Springborn at the start. McGrath led the field to the restart on lap 10, when caution slowed the field for the first time for a spin in turn two. On the restart, McGrath pulled away from the field as Swedberg challenged Parker for second. McGrath had nearly a full straightaway lead on the field and was working with lapped traffic just before the red flag flew on lap 18 as Eric Michaels made contact with the tire in turn one and rolled his car, landing right-side up. Michaels was okay and the race resumed.

On the restart, McGrath led the field, only for the yellow to come out again, as Joel Bennett spun in turn three before a lap was completed. As the field returned to green, McGrath pulled away from Parker and Swedberg. Further back in the field, Nick Anvelink raced three wide with fellow Stockbridge Engineering Touring Kings drivers Mark Rose and Jim Schmidt and also with Josh Moesch and Joe Reuter, moving Anvelink to sixth position.

McGrath encountered lapped traffic with four laps to go but that didn’t slow him down as McGrath would go on to win his first DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model Tour race of 2018 and his second DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model Tour win. McGrath won the Inaugural DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model Tour race at Oshkosh SpeedZone on May 25, 2017.

Parker would finish second, followed by Swedberg, Springborn, and Chris Engels in fifth. Anvelink would finish sixth, his lowest finish of the season, with Rose, Moesch, Reuter and Buhler rounding out the top ten.

The Stockbridge Engineering Touring Kings were all in action, with Brett Swedberg finishing third, Troy Springborn in fourth, Chris Engels in fifth, Nick Anvelink in sixth, Tim Buhler finished tenth, Jim Schmidt finished twelfth, Ron Berna was fourteenth, Justin Schmidt finished sixteenth, Jared Siefert was twentieth, and Diamond Jim Letizia finished ninth in the B-Main.

The Discount Shop Towels.com 30 was also the fourth and final round of the Seubert Summer Series. A series within a series, drivers at the the Seubert Calf Ranches Summer Series events earned both Championship points and Seubert Summer Series points at four different events this season. The four events that made up the Seubert Calf Ranches Summer Series were: May 25 at Spring Lake Speedway, July 1 at Eagle Valley Speedway, August 10 at Outagamie Speedway and September 8 at Plymouth, as TNT Speedway was rained out on September 2. The Seubert Summer Series has a $5,000 point fund, that is above and beyond the Championship Point Fund for the DiscountShopTowels.comDirt Kings Late Model Tour and will be distributed equally to the Top 15 drivers in the point standings.

The DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model Tour has just two races left in the 2018 Kings of Clay Tour. Saturday, September 15, the Tour visits Wilmot Raceway for the Inaugural Jim "Wildman" Watson Classic. The race will pay $2000 to win, as Allied Resource Recovery is sponsoring the event. The Crowning of the King will conclude the season on Thursday, September 27 at 141 Speedway.
