McIntosh Tops T-Town Showdown Practice

In the first USAC on-track action in 75 days, Cannon McIntosh recorded the fastest single lap in Thursday’s USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget practice session, turning in a time of 9.459 seconds to blister around the 1/8-mile in preparation for this Friday and Saturday’s racing events at Port City Raceway in Tulsa, Okla.

Although this weekend marks the series’ debut at the track, McIntosh, from Bixby, Okla., has extensive experience at the track in micro sprints and finished 2nd in the Sooner Shootout Midget event a year ago.

McIntosh, aboard his Keith Kunz-Curb-Agajanian/TRD – Mobil1 – JBL Audio/Bullet By Spike/Speedway Toyota, set the pace in the second group of practice where most of the 28 drivers who took a time set their fastest speeds of the night.

Five different teams were represented in the top-six fastest times with McIntosh followed by Clauson-Marshall Racing’s Tyler Courtney (Indianapolis, Ind.) in second, McIntosh’s KKM teammate Daison Pursley (Locust Grove, Okla.) in third, RMS’ Thomas Meseraull (San Jose, Calif.) fourth, Tucker-Boat Motorsports’ Chris Windom (Canton, Ill.) fifth and Petry Motorsports’ Kevin Thomas Jr. (Cullman, Ala.) sixth.
