Cannon McIntosh, the fifth-place finishing driver in USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget points for 2020, will return to the family-owned Dave Mac Motorsports team for the 2021 season as announced via social media video on the team’s Twitter page Thursday afternoon.
McIntosh earned two victories in his one and only year with Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports during 2020 at Missouri’s Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex and Indiana’s Gas City I-69 Speedway, finishing inside the top-five 12 times and the top-ten on 19 occasions in 28 starts, three of which he earned a fast qualifying time in.
Additionally, as recently as last week, McIntosh drove the KKM No. 71K to victory on the opening night prelim feature at the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals in Tulsa, Okla., and was fourth in the A-Main of Saturday’s finale.
The 18-year-old Bixby, Okla. native will now focus his forthcoming season as the pilot of the Dave Mac No. 08, the same team and car number with which he utilized to win his first career USAC National Midget feature, in 2019, indoors at the Southern Illinois Center in Du Quoin.
“(I’m) thankful for the opportunities I’ve had with Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports in the 2020 season,” McIntosh stated. “(I’m) onto new journeys now and looking forward to a great season.”
McIntosh, a veteran of 40 career USAC National Midget feature starts since 2018, will join new Dave Mac Motorsports teammates, 2016 series champ Tanner Thorson (#88) and Taylor Reimer (#25K), in a three-car team effort for the 2021 USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget season openers at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Fla. on Feb. 5-6.
