Hudson O'Neal Runner-Up in $30k I-80 Nationals!

(July 25, 2021) The Double Down Motorsports (DDM) team was busy in a long week at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska from July 20-24. Things kicked off with the 'I-80 Nationals' and Hudson O'Neal promptly led laps 15-18 of Tuesday night's $7,000 to win preliminary event before finishing a strong runner-up behind only victor Brandon Overton. In Wednesday's $7,000 to win prelim, Hudson had a top five run going as well until rear-end issues sidelined him on lap 9 and relegated the Martinsville, Indiana star to a twenty-second place showing. By virtue of racking up the sixth most points in preliminary action, Hudson rolled off from the outside of the third row on Thursday night in the 'I-80 Nationals' and climbed up to second to finish behind only $30,000 winner Tyler Erb!

When the weekend rolled around at I-80 Speedway, a $53,00 paycheck was on the line in the annual running of the 'Silver Dollar Nationals.' In the two rounds of heat race action on Friday evening, Hudson advanced to fourth in his first heat race, while he secured a triumph in his final prelim of the night. The "New Deal" accumulated the eighth most passing points to earn the outside of the fourth row for the start of Saturday's 80-lap headliner. Hudson then raced hard all over the top ten before settling for a solid seventh place performance in the 'Silver Dollar Nationals.'
