Tim McCreadie will be driving for Donald and Gena Bradsher in 2020
It’s December but Tim McCreadie already has his seat lined for 2020.
McCreadie finished 2nd in Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series standings in 2019. Now, he’ll return to the dirt late model series with a new car owner.
He will remain in the Longhorn House Car. However, the house car will be owned by Donald and Gena Bradsher of Burlington, North Carolina.
The new deal means he will part ways with Ann and Carl Myers, Vic Coffey as well as sponsor Sweeteners Plus.
Tim McCreadie on his new team
“First off, I have to thank Ann and Carl Myers, Vic Coffey, and Sweeteners Plus for everything they have done for my racing career since 2002,” Tim McCreadie said in a team release.
“It was a very successful partnership and we were able to win a lot of big races and championships together. While I still have a great relationship with them, I’m excited about this new chapter in my racing career driving for Donald and Gena (Bradsher).”
“They are both great people and do things in a first-class manner. “As a driver, all you can ask for is to have the equipment, the manpower, and the resources available to compete at the highest level possible and there is no doubt that the Bradsher’s are putting together that caliber of a team.”
“I’m ready to get back to racing and hopefully it will be a big year for us in 2020!”
Donald Bradsher on Tim McCreadie
Donald Bradsher is a long-time dirt late model driver. His 2019 season came to an end in July after a crash at Cherokee Speedway.
“I’m pumped up about our new endeavor in putting this partnership together with Tim McCreadie and Longhorn Chassis,” Donald Bradsher stated via the release.
“Both Gena and I are very passionate about racing and make no mistake about it, we want to win a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series title. Tim is one of the best wheelmen in this sport and bringing back crew chief Philip Snellen, along with the expertise of Kevin Rumley.”
“We hope to build off what they accomplished in a strong 2019 season and raise the bar even higher for 2020.”
Justin Labonte on Tim McCreadie
The car owner is changing but the backing from Longhorn Chassis isn’t. The #39 car will remain the house car for the dirt late model manufacture.
“We are thrilled to have Tim (McCreadie) back in our house car for 2020 and the new partnership with Donald and Gena Bradsher has everyone at Longhorn reenergized for next year,” quoted Longhorn’s Justin Labonte.
“Ann and Carl Myers, along with Sweeteners Plus, were tremendous to work with and their support of Tim and dirt track racing in general is undeniable.”
“With that being said, the Bradsher’s are awesome people to deal with and I think everything is aligning for the #39 team to have a terrific season. We have some new things that we are going to test extensively leading up to Speedweeks and working so closely with talented people like McCreadie, Rumley and Bradsher will no doubt help every one of our Longhorn Chassis customers.”
McCreadie’s 2020 season will begin indoors. He’s set to run the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals in January piloting a Jim Neuman entry.
You can take a look at it in person, next week at the PRI Trade Show. The #39 Longhorn House Car can be found in the Bilstein booth in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana.
The new late model will make it’s track debut in February during Georgia-Florida Speedweeks.
