EDDIE 24th after a LAP 107 FIVE CAR WRECK
Eddie MacDonald finished 24th in the 3 Amigos Tequila 125 at Phoenix International Raceway while participating in the final race for the K & N Pro Series West. The Grimm Construction Chevy was running in the eighth position when taken out with a hard crash into the turn one wall.

The race was marred with 11 caution flags for 49 laps including three red flags in the 125 lap event on the mile oval. MacDonald was involved in the ninth caution on lap 107 when the #2 car of Daryl Harr tried to make in three wide in turn one with a bonzi move below the yellow line. The west driver lost it and slid into MacDonald sending both cars up into the

MacDonald was okay but said, "That was two hard hits. I don't know what the #2 car was thinking. You can't run three wide in that turn. The car is junk now. It is just a shame because we qualified good and wanted to have a solid finish. We didn't have anything for the leaders but we were in position for a top ten and possibly a top five but it was not to be." MacDonald ran a qualifying lap of 27.906 sec. (129 mph) that was good enough to start fifth in the 40-car field. When the green flag waved MacDonald took
the fourth spot but it didn't take long for the first caution flag to fly on the second lap. After racing resumed the yellow flags flew regularly with MacDonald saying, "It was really hard to get any kind of rhythm going with all the flags. We were bouncing a bit and the car was free of but the green flag run were not long enough to get the car settled in."

MacDonald ran in the top eight until pitting for tires on caution lap 63 then began making his way back up through the pack. The Rowley, Mass. driver managed to miss a couple of wrecks but was tagged in the right rear and spun on lap 70. The crew repaired the damage and MacDonald restarted in the 25th position. By lap 87 Eddie Mac was 13th and moving to the front. On lap 101
MacDonald was eighth and poised to make a run for a top five finish but his night ended in turn one on lap 107.

"It was getting crazy out there with the laps winding down and I had to back out a couple of times with guys pinching me. We were running three wide a couple of times and you knew something was going to happen and unfortunately it happened to us. It is a shame to come all this way and the only thing to show for it is a wrecked racecar. We had fun up to that point. This track is
a lot of fun to drive and it is not anywhere near as similar to Loudon as we thought. The dogleg on the back stretch makes it totally different that anything we ever raced on. I just want to thank Rollie, the crew, and team owner Rob Grimm for all the hard work and support, as well as, all our sponsors and fans."

Stat Advance: Analyzing K&N West At PIR

Eddie MacDonald and the Grimm Racing Team will travel west this week to compete in the season finale for the K & N Pro Series West at Phoenix International Raceway. The 3 Amigos Tequila 125 will be held on Saturday, November 13th as a prelim to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Chase race to be run on Sunday.

“We have wanted to run out there for some time and the entire team is really pleased to be going out there to compete with the west guys,” said MacDonald. “It will be a lot of fun to be part of another Chase weekend and we hope to have a good finish. The west guys definitely have an advantage at Phoenix since they run there twice a year but the track is similar in some ways to Loudon in length and banking, so hopefully we will have the right set up there. I know Rollie and the crew are excited about racing there and putting on a good show. ”

The final will be the twelfth race of the season for the K & N Pro Series West as Eric Holmes has dominated with five wins in eleven races and will certainly present a challenge to MacDonald and the rest of the field. “Eric is having an awesome year and has had great success at Phoenix over the years but there are also a lot of other guys who can get it done. We have seen how well David Mayhew runs and Paulie Harraka has had a great season. We have run with most of those guys at Iowa and Irwindale so we know what to expect. They are every bit as competitive as the guys in the East series.”

MacDonald and crew chief Rollie LaChance would like nothing better than to steal the win out there with Eddie Mac saying, “We finished fifth in the points race this year and we did not have a win so the season was a little disappointing. It would be great to take the win out there to finish the season off strong. Everyone on the team is happy to be racing out in Phoenix but we are not just going for the fun of it, we are going there to win.”

Practice and qualifying for the 3 Amigos Tequila 125 on the mile oval will be held on Thursday then have Friday off before competing on Saturday.
The Sunoco 150
Friday, September 24th
4th for EDDIE at the "MONSTER MILE"
Eddie MacDonald finished the final race in the K&N Pro Series East schedule with a strong run in the Sunoco 150 at Dover International Speedway to achieve two pre-season goals. Both MacDonald and team owner Rob Grimm scored in fifth place in team and owner points.

“I am real happy for Rob and Carla Grimm to have a top five finish. They have been great since we started and to get this for them is awesome,” said MacDonald. “With all the Cup teams racing now, it is a real challenge to finish in fifth for any owner. Just having Rob with us each race and working in the pits says a lot about his commitment to this team and we can’t begin to thank him enough for all his family has done.”

The Grimm Construction Chevy qualified tenth and ran in the top ten for the first half of the race with the Rowley, Mass. driver saying, “The car was not very fast for most of the race. We have been missing something here the last few times. I wish I knew what it is but in spite of that we had a good finish. Rollie and the crew never give up and with the adjustments and the tires with about 50 laps to go made the car a lot better.”

MacDonald restarted in 13th with a third of the race left to run the leaders down saying, “It was really tough to get back to the front with all the cars I had to pass. It isn’t easy passing there and with the car not as fast I had to pick my spots to get by. Plus, I had to be very careful with Danica and Quarterly banging off one another. With ten to go I was outside the top ten but I was able to get by a number of cars into fifth place on the second green white checker restart. I was happy to get past Quarterly for fourth at the end of the race.”

The fourth place run gave MacDonald two top five and seven top ten finishes for the ten race season. “We finished second in the points last season and I know we could have been a top three team this year but we had bad runs at Martinsville, Gresham, and Greenville-Pickens. With such a short season you have to have good runs every race. We are pleased with the fifth place finish but know we could have done better. Isn’t that what racing is all about? Unless you finish first, drivers are never satisfied. It has been a lot of fun this year and I thank the crew, sponsors, and fans for all the help and support.

The Sunoco 150 will be televised on Speed on Thursday, October 7, at 6 PM.

Saturday, Sept. 18th
Eddie MacDonald and the Grimm Racing Team competed in three of the five feature races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and their effort was rewarded with a sixth place finish in the K&N Pro Series East and a fifth place run in the ACT Invitational. The “experiment” in running a “spec” engine in the Camping World Truck Series ended with a wrecked truck and scored in 30th place.
The K&N Pro Series East race kicked off a busy weekend for the team with MacDonald posting the fifth fastest speed in the practice and followed it up with a fourth place run in qualifying. The Rowley, Mass driver maintained the position early in the race then slipped back to ninth on lap 45 as the car became tight. MacDonald restarted in second place on lap 51 after the leaders pitted and held on to the spot until the caution on lap 74.
 MacDonald restarted in 22nd on lap 79 after pitting for tires and fuel then began making his way to the front. On lap 85 the Grimm Construction Chevy was tenth and with 15 laps to go, MacDonald was in sixth place then moved to fourth when the two leaders took themselves out forcing the first green/white/checker. MacDonald was in third when another crash caused a second G/W/C attempt when the #9 car did not go on the first restart from his second spot on the grid sending cars all over the track at the start finish line. Officials then decided that the #71 car did not maintain speed even though MacDonald slowed to avoid slamming into Swindell’s car that was facing the wrong way on the track and placed him in the tenth position for the final restart. MacDonald was able to gain four positions over the last two laps.
 The finish pushed him into fifth place in the points with MacDonald saying, “It is great that we moved back into the top five despite the tough day. The car was tight the entire race and to have that call at the end really hurt but we’ll take the finish and get ready for Dover next week. We want to finish up strong there and it is one of our favorite places to race.”
 MacDonald and the crew prepared for their first Camping World Truck Series race in what was considered an experiment. No one ever ran a “spec” engine in a truck race so there was a lot of interest throughout the NASCAR community. MacDonald hoped to run in the top 20 saying, “The engine is one of our East engines and is a lot less horsepower than the teams running the trucks and because it is lighter NASCAR added a 100 pounds of weight to our truck so it will be tough but we’ll see how it goes.”
 MacDonald qualified 22nd and when the green flag waved it was evident the added weight and less horsepower would play a major role in the race with MacDonald saying, “We just couldn’t keep up with those guys on the restarts. They had way more power than us. It took us a while to get going and the truck was really tight like the East car so we were just hoping to maintain our position which we did until we got taken out on lap 84 in turn one by David Starr. That was the hardest I ever hit the wall and the official said afterward it registered 39 g’s. The truck is pretty torn up and if we got out of here without too much damage we were going to run at Martinsville but now I don’t know if we will be able to get it fixed. It was a tough day but it was fun to race with those guys.”
MacDonald won the first ACT Invitational at NHMS last September and hoped to repeat but it was not to be. Teams were placed on the starting grid according to their performance ability and the Bank North 250 champion was slated to start 23rd but a penalty was levied forcing MacDonald to start 33rd. After passing inspection both driver and crew chief Rollie LaChance headed to the truck garage to prepare for that race. The remaining crew jacked up the left side of the Late Model to attach the transponder. It was at that time ACT officials measured the height of the right side and determined it to be too low forcing the team to cut a quarter of a inch off the bottom side panel and leveling the penalty.
 MacDonald said of the penalty, “I told them that when you jack up one side of the car you just can’t measure it then. The car has to be re-set and then you can measure it. We went through inspection once and it was okay. After the race we measured it and it was an inch and a half higher than what is mandatory. Starting back where we did was tough because we had to pass so many cars that were running side by side and the car was tight just like the East car and truck.”
 Despite the penalty, MacDonald drove the NEMO Pontiac from 33rd to sixth at the halfway mark of the sixty lap feature and into fourth with nine laps remaining, Brian Hoar took the fourth position with six laps remaining giving MacDonald the fifth place finish.
 “It was a great weekend of racing for us and the crew did an incredible job getting three vehicles ready,” said MacDonald after the race. “It was amazing because we were really spread so thin. Everyone worked their tails off and I really want to thank them for all the hard work. A number of other people stepped in to help and we really appreciate it. We have great support and we could not have done any of this without them.”

EDDIE 4TH in K&N QUALIFYING with a 30.578 for 124.560 mph

Eddie MacDonald and the Grimm Racing Team will have their hands full this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway as they will participate in three of the scheduled five events at “The Magic Mile.” MacDonald will take the green flag in the K&N Pro Series East” New Hampshire 125 on Friday, then compete in the Camping World Truck Series and the American-Canadian Tour Invitational races scheduled for Saturday.

The team has been preparing for the weekend for some time and MacDonald realizes the pressure saying, “This is something we have planned on since the beginning of the season but we have been out straight preparing both cars and the truck. I can honestly say that all the preparation is worth it because we feel really good about our chances, at least in the East and ACT races. We decided to race our truck, we bought two Roush trucks earlier this year, and it’s really an experiment, so our goal is to qualify for the race and hope for a good finish. We are definitely excited to be in three events. We will be dragging afterward but it should be a lot of fun.”

The experiment MacDonald spoke of will be in running a “spec” engine for the first time in the Camping World Truck Series. Running a “spec” engine has been talked about for a while and has been tested at some tracks but no team has decided to use one in a race. Questions about horsepower have generally kept its use on the back burner. NASCAR claims the engine produces only 20 less horsepower than the conventional power plants but independent tests claim the difference to be between 80 and 100. The engines are lighter in weight but NASCAR has decided that anyone running the “spec” engine will have to add 100 pounds to the car in order to level the playing field. Probably the reason the spec engine has not been used is the horsepower disadvantage and the added weight to the car. The experiment will begin with qualifying for the New Hampshire 175 on Saturday at 10:05 a.m. followed by the race at 3:00 p.m.

With three wins in the last five races in the K&N Pre Series East races at NHMS, MacDonald knows what it takes to get to victory lane saying, “We have had great success there in the past and we definitely learned a what not to do after our June race. We made some changes that we thought would help the car but they went the other way. The car is always fast there so we are just going to go with what got us there before. Of course we would like to win there again since all our fans are from the area and will be there, so every win there is special. After our run at Gresham we need to get back on track and there is nothing like being at home to do that.”

After the Camping World Truck Series race on Saturday, MacDonald will climb into the #17 Late Model to defend his title in the ACT Invitational. Last year was the inaugural race for the ACT Tour and it was so successful both NHMS and ACT officials decided to stage the event again. MacDonald has won races running the ACT Tour this season when his schedule permitted and won the prestigious TD Bank 250 at Oxford Plains earlier this year. MacDonald is the early favorite to repeat as champion at NHMS but is quick to point out, “It would be awesome to win it again and that is what we are going there to do but there are a lot of strong cars entered this year with a year of racing at NHMS under their belts so I expect a tough race.”

MacDonald and crew chief Rollie LaChance were not pleased with the car during the test session held in August at Loudon with MacDonald saying, “It just didn’t go as we expected it to go. It just wasn’t fast as it usually is so we made some changes since then and we just tested at Lee and it was fast. It handled great so it is where we want it to be.”

LaChance was pleased with the car saying of the chance to repeat, “I am now. The car was great. I am really happy with it and I am looking forward to racing it at Loudon. Hopefully we can win another one.” On the truck test LaChance said,” It was okay until we developed a leak in the master cylinder, which I didn’t need with everything going on but better to find it here that at Loudon. We pretty much got rained out at Oxford Plains testing this week so it was good to get out on the track. I think we will be alright.”

Practice for the K&N Pro Series East race begins at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday with qualifying at 3:15 p.m. The New Hampshire 125 will take the green flag at 5:00 p.m. on Friday following the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying for Sunday’s Sylvania 300. The Grimm Race Team will have only a few hours of rest until the 8:00 a.m. start of ACT practice on Saturday morning.

“I hope we get a lot of people to come out to support us in all three races, said MacDonald. “Hopefully we can post two wins and a top twenty finish. That’s the goal. We are really looking forward to the weekend.”

Eddie Out of Race in Lap 133 Accident for a 16th Place Finish


With only three races remaining in the K&N Pro Series East schedule, Eddie MacDonald is prepared for a solid finish to move into the top five in the championship point’s race in the American Fence Association 150 presented by Mayfield Ice Creamier at Gresham Motorsports Park on Saturday, August 28. The team currently sits in sixth place as they have come on strong in the last three races.

“We are really expecting to do well at Gresham despite never racing there because we are bringing the car we raced at Martinsville and that thing was fast,” said the veteran driver. “We were running up front there until we had a flat tire that ending up causing a lot of damage. I believe the tracks are similar in length (one-half mile) and banking (12 degrees in the corners), so hopefully we won’t have any issues and have a top five finish, at least.”

MacDonald received the Wix Filters Leader Award after his performance leading the most laps at Lee USA Speedway and knows a similar effort at Gresham is necessary to move into the top five in points. “We are not too far out of the top five (18 points) and we are in seventh place in owner points so a good run at Gresham would be awesome. Rob Grimm is such a great guy the team would really like to finish up strong to get him into the top five.”

“We have two races left at tracks we have been successful at, so a really strong run this Saturday will put us in a good position for the end of the season. We had some frustrating runs at the beginning of the season and with only ten races, it is hard to make up lost ground but the team has really come on strong over the last half. Rollie and the crew have worked really hard and the results prove it.”

The one day event is scheduled for a morning and afternoon practice, qualifying at 4:00 pm., and racing at 8:30 pm. for 150 laps. Lap by lap coverage is usually provided on the NE Racing website and/or NASCAR Home Tracks. Speed will televise the event on Sept. 2 at 6:00 pm.

The K&N 125

Eddie MacDonald returned home and came close to achieving his goal to win on the track that began his racing career when he was sixteen years old on the family owned Lee USA Speedway facility. While most drivers would be happy to finish fourth in the K&N Pro Series East 125 at Lee, the run for the Grimm Construction Chevy was bittersweet.

“Obviously we wanted to win at home in front of family and friends and the car was certainly fast enough but finishing fourth was our best run this season so we are happy about that,” said the Rowley, Mass. veteran. “For the last part of the race, Truex and I had a great battle going and were running each other real clean but I guess he should have been protecting the bottom instead of pushing me up the track. Wallace made a real aggressive move on the bottom and used twelve tires instead of four to hold the bottom. Unfortunately we were four of those tires.”

MacDonald qualified second with a fast time of 86.6 mph (15.589 sec) on the three-eighths mile oval, and then took the lead on the green flag lap from polesitter Kevin Swindell. MacDonald led five times for a race high 65 laps to earn ten bonus points. The bonus points were enough to move into sixth place, one ahead of Matt Kobyluck, in the championship point’s race with three races remaining on the schedule.

MacDonald was running second when contact was made with Swindell in turn two on lap 54, “I really felt bad for Swindell but I didn’t do on purpose. My car was tight and when I hit the gas it pushed up the track just as he was making a diamond turn in the corner. He came down and I went up and we got together. I know he was upset with me and I don’t blame him. He had a car capable of winning but as I said, it was not intentional. You can ask anyone I race with and they will tell you, I don’t race like that.”

MacDonald led until Truex finally made the pass just as the yellow flag flew on lap 116 and the battle was on when the green flag waved with three laps to go. “I had to restart on the outside for the earlier restarts because we were pushing up the track and Truex was really good on the inside so I knew it be a great race the final three laps. I was surprised when Rollie told me we were three wide and that worked for about one lap but it was not going to last the rest of the way. We almost wrecked in turn one and by the time I got it back we were in fourth. I know Truex was pretty upset with Wallace but he did what he had to do to win the race. Unfortunately we got caught up in it and it definitely hurt us. We had a good point’s race and now we will try to get more at Gresham Motorsports Park at the end of the month.”

Many of the former drivers and officials of the old Busch North Series and the family of former director Bunk Sampson were on hand for the event with MacDonald saying, “It was really great to see some of the guys that made all of this possible, especially Bunk’s family. I knew Bunk when I was just a kid and he was a great guy. He did a lot for this series but he was the kind of guy you wanted as a friend. His name is all over this series and always will be.”

The Grimm Construction Chevy will be in action next in the K&N Pro Series East at Gresham Motorsports Park in Georgia on Saturday, August 28.

NASCAR REPORT - LEE, N.H. -- Darrell Wallace Jr. made a three-wide pass for the lead with two laps to go and held on for the victory Friday in the K&N Pro Series 125 at Lee USA Speedway.

Wallace started behind Ryan Truex and Eddie MacDonald on the race's final restart. Truex and MacDonald had swapped the lead four times over the previous 35 laps, and appeared setting up for a final dash to the checkers for the win. But it was Wallace who had drove up through the field after getting tangled up in an early race incident and wound up stealing the spotlight. He dove inside the side-by-side leaders going into Turn 3, and emerged with the lead coming out of Turn 4.

MacDonald ended up fourth. The Rowley, Mass., driver seemed poised to win at his home track, where he made his series debut in 2001. He led five times for a race-high 65 laps only to get shuffled out of the lead in the final laps.

The K&N Pro Series 125 will air on SPEED on Thursday, Aug. 5 at 6 p.m. ET.

The next stop for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East will take place at an old familiar facility.
 Lee (N.H.) USA Speedway, has returned to the schedule for the first time since the 2004 season. The .375-mile banked oval played host to the K&N Pro Series East 16 times from 1992-2004.
 While the NASCAR K&N Pro Series 125 will be the first trip for the vast majority of teams and drivers to Lee, for one driver, it will be a homecoming.
 Eddie MacDonald, who hails from Rowley, Mass., has a strong connection to the New Hampshire short track. As the son of track owner and operator Red MacDonald, he has spent many a Friday night at Lee.
 "Before I started racing there, they would bring us up - my sister and I - to the track and someone would put us to work," MacDonald said. "A couple of the employees would look over us because we were still fairly young. I'd be selling popcorn and pizza and she would be selling 50/50 tickets and
 different stuff like that. We did that for quite a while."
MacDonald moved from one side of the fence to the other at age 15 in the Hobby Stock division. He then moved up to Late Models and eventually made his K&N Pro Series East debut there in 2001.
 Since he began competing in the K&N Pro Series East full time, MacDonald hasn't been back to the track a whole lot. In addition to the commitments with his East team, he's just not very comfortable as a spectator.

"I hate going to races unless I'm racing," MacDonald said. "It gets my mind going, thinking I need to go home and get a car ready to come back and race. I do love going up there and watching the guys I used to race with, but every time I go up there I wish I had my own car. "
 As one of the veterans, and combined with the series' six-year absence from competition at the track, MacDonald and Matt Kobyluck are the only drivers on the preliminary entry list who have K&N Pro Series East experience at Lee.
 MacDonaldhopes that his extensive experience at Lee will provide an edge on the competition, and he will undoubtedly have a comfort level that the other drivers will not.
 "That's going to go quite a long ways - having raced there so many times in the past," MacDonald said. "The tough thing is, the development teams have so much technology and experience. Hopefully we can really get our car to handle there, and my experience from being there so much will give us an
 MacDonaldhas embraced the perceived pressure on him and the team as the hometown favorite, and is using it as further motivation.
 "We put pressure on ourselves for every race, but having not won a race there in the K&N Series yet, definitely puts a little more pressure," MacDonald said. "It is our home track, and it just means that much more."

 'Busch North' Reunion To Highlight Series' Return To Lee
 When the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East returns to Lee USA Speedway, past and present will meet as the track has organized a 'Busch North' Reunion.
 The K&N Pro Series East was established in 1987 as the Busch North Series, and has strong ties to Lee, which played host to the series in 13 of its first 18 years of competition.
 Among the many former K&N Pro Series East drivers expected to attend the reunion are past champions Joey Kourafas, Dick McCabe, Mike Olsen, Andy Santerre and Dale Shaw.
 Olsen, Santerre and Shaw are still involved in the K&N Pro Series East. Olsen owns his own team, Santerre is director of competition for the four-team Revolution Racing and Shaw helps field a team for his son, D.J Shaw.
 Fans in attendance will have a chance to meet the former drivers in an autograph session as part of the evening's activities. Race fans are encouraged to bring collectors items to have signed by
 NASCAR North Series drivers from past and present, as an autograph session will also be held at 6:30 PM for the current North Series drivers, some of who will become the future stars of the top three divisions in NASCAR.
 The NASCAR K&N Pro Series 125 will also feature a tribute to former series director, the late Bunk Sampson. Former K&N Pro Series East technical director Ken Farrington will also serve as grand marshal for the race.
