WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Tim McCreadie is continuing the family business.
He comes from a family of racing. His father, Bob, of course, is a big block modified racing legend.
Being around it at a young age spurred his hunger for the sport.
His drive to excel led him to trying different levels of the sport and a chance to perform on a bigger stage.
In 2003, McCreadie started racing late models. That 17-year journey has led him to the Lucas Oil late model circuit, among the best dirt track series in the country.
McCreadie has run the Lucas Oil series for five years. This past season, he won seven feature races and has finished second in the points standings three of the five years on the circuit.
This week, he’s racing in Tulsa, Oklahoma in the Chili Bowl.
We’ll have more on that later.
