"I am happy with our day all around", stated Chris Woods Racing Co-owner "Woody" Woods from the garage at Rockingham Speedway.
The CWR team had 5 cars in action on the day with Ryan Mackintosh piloting the #03 Scotia Hyundai Bandolero Outlaw and the #03 Allison Legacy on the 7/10 mile road course at historic Rockingham.
The INEX Bandolero event was the final of 3 races to determine the Rockingham Road Wars 2010 Champion. Ryan Mackintosh entered the race in 2nd behind the #92 of Reid Wilson. Wilson qualified his car on the pole after leading wire to wire in the qualifying heat with Mackintosh bringing the #03 from 7th place to 3rd.
Mackintosh and Wilson quickly got out infront of the rest of field and battled hard for the nearly 7 mile feature. With three to go Mackintosh was able to pass Wilson and hold on for the win.
The finish tied both drivers for the points lead in the series with Mackintosh taking first place on the basis of the tie-breaker, most wins.
The team had no time to celebrate as they quickly turned their attention to the Allison Legacy event. Ryan Mackintosh had qualified the car on the outside of row 3 for the event.
Mackintosh battled a fuel uptake problem all race but was able to maintain the pace and finish the race in 6th place.
"The car handled great",commented Mackintosh after the race. "The set up was excellent and we may have grabbed a few more spots but the fuel issue hurt us a little. Woody and Brodie (MacQuarrie) did a great job on the car" "I am happy with the finish and I am looking forward to next season in the Legacy".
Chris Woods Racing driver Ashley Caldwell also took home Championship hardware for the team. Caldwell won two races in the series on her way to bringing home the Bandolero Bandit Championship trophy.
