Paul McMahan Overcomes Up-and-Down Season to Lawrenceburg Win
Scores his third series win of the season and takes over 17th on the all-time wins list
LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. – Oct. 16, 2015 – From the peak of spring where things seemed to be coming together to the desolation of a frustrating summer, Paul McMahan was a driver relieved Friday night at Lawrenceburg Speedway after he scored his first World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series victory in more than five months.
“It’s been a long time,” an emotional McMahan said as he walked to his victory lane interview. “Man, this has been a hell of an up-and-down year for me all year long. We’re not accustomed to be running where we’ve been running. This is where we’re accustomed to running.”
With his father and son in attendance, the CJB Motorsports driver took the quick time earlier in the night, his second in a row and sixth on the season.
Christopher Bell and Shane Stewart led the field to the green flag in the 35-lap feature which had been postponed to tonight following a rain out in May. Stewart jumped to an early lead in his No. 2 GoPro/Eneos/KickIt car as McMahan quickly moved into fourth from a fifth-place starting position.
