out in full force at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord, North
Carolina from May 11-14, as both Tim McCreadie and Carson Ferguson
were in action during the 'Colossal 100,' which was sanctioned by
the XR Super Series. Tim ran third in his heat race in Wednesday's
$25,000 to win opener before placing sixth in the final rundown
of the 30-lap feature. In a similar $25,000 to win program on Thursday
night, Tim won his heat race prior to running an impressive fourth
in the 30-lapper behind only victor Kyle Larson, Brandon Overton,
and Chris Madden. Following a rain-out on Friday evening, a whopping
$50,000 paycheck was up for grabs on Saturday in the 'Colossal 100'
grand finale. Tim placed third in heat race action, but was unfortunately
an early retiree in the 50-lap headliner and was ultimately paid
for an eighteenth place performance.
Carson was also in the pit area at the Charlotte-area speedplant
to compete in those same three XR shows. On Wednesday, Carson grabbed
the fourth and final transfer spot through his heat race prior to
winding up eighteenth in the final finishing order of the 30-lap
main event. At the 4/10-mile oval on Thursday, Carson picked up
an impressive heat race triumph, but a broken carburetor stud early
in the 30-lap A-Main forced him to retire prematurely in the twenty-fourth
position. Following the rain-out, Carson finished third in his heat
race on Saturday before advancing past a handful of competitors
during the 50-lapper to land in the twelfth spot. Complete results
