With only three races remaining in the K & N Pro Series East schedule, Eddie
MacDonald is prepared for a solid finish to move into the top five in the
championship point’s race in the American Fence Association 150 presented by
Mayfield Ice Creamier at Gresham Motorsports Park on Saturday, August 28th.
The team currently sits in sixth place as they have come on strong in the
last three races.

“We are really expecting to do well at Gresham despite never racing there
because we are bringing the car we raced at Martinsville and that thing was
fast,” said the veteran driver. “We were running up front there until we had
a flat tire that ending up causing a lot of damage. I believe the tracks are
similar in length (one-half mile) and banking (12 degrees in the corners),
so hopefully we won’t have any issues and have a top five finish, at least.”
MacDonald received the Wix Filters Leader Award after his performance
leading the most laps at Lee USA Speedway and knows a similar effort at
Gresham is necessary to move into the top five in points. “We are not too
far out of the top five (18 points) and we are in seventh place in owner
points so a good run at Gresham would be awesome. Rob Grimm is such a great
guy the team would really like to finish up strong to get him into the top

“We have two races left at tracks we have been successful at, so a really
strong run this Saturday will put us in a good position for the end of the
season. We had some frustrating runs at the beginning of the season and with
only ten races, it is hard to make up lost ground but the team has really
come on strong over the last half. Rollie and the crew have worked really
hard and the results prove it.”

The one day event is scheduled for a morning and afternoon practice,
qualifying at 4:00 pm., and racing at 8:30 pm. for 150 laps. Lap by lap
coverage is usually provided on the NE Racing website and/or NASCAR Home
Tracks. Speed will televise the event on September 2 at 6:00 pm.
