NickHolt Posted September 7, 2006 Report Share Posted September 7, 2006 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 7, 2006 Contact: K-MAC Sports, 512.417.9414 Spreen unofficially clinches Legacys title Things have been good to 12-year-old Dillon Spreen for the 2006 Lonestar Legacys season. So much so that the youngster only has to attempt to qualify – and attempt to start – the last race of the season, Oct. 28 at the Texas Stock Car Spectacular at Thunder Hill Raceway to clinch his first-ever Lonestar Legacys points championship. Spreen drove the the #81 South Bay/Spreen Racing Engines Chevrolet Monte Carlo to a third-place finish Saturday (Sept. 2) at Thunder Hill Raceway behind race winner Jeff Weir and Taylor Brandes, who came in second. The team has been having problem with its Legacys sealed crate motor, the motor required by the series. “We’re very proud of Dillon considering he was running with a motor that was down one cylinder,” said Spreen Racing Team owner Greg Spreen. “The last couple of races we’ve been having motor problems. Basically we were points racing on Saturday; I was hoping we could get through the race and Dillon came home third. He did a great job.” Greg Spreen added, “We tried a new setup for THR; we put some different springs in the car. Dillon loved the setup and feels confident he’ll do well in the Texas Stock Car Spectacular. He feels he’ll run towards the front that night.” The Spreens will hit the track again this Saturday (Sept. 9) at San Antonio Speedway for a non-points race at the famed half-mile paved oval. It will also be a good “test night” for the Spreen Racing Team. “We’re going to run a brand new motor for this weekend,” Greg Spreen stated. “I figured we’d use it for this weekend instead of last weekend (during a points race) just in case it failed. I’d rather have it fail on the track during the non-points race at SAS.” Information about Dillon Spreen can be found at the Spreen Racing Team web site, www.dillonspreen.com.
