The dirt late model team has posted image of the No. 71 for their new driver
Double Down Motorsports is a dirt late model team that was established in 2015.
In 2019, the team made the step to the national dirt late model tour. Shanon Buckingham ran full time with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.
In 2020, Hudson O’Neal signed as the driver of the MasterSbilt house car. The team struggled to get a footing and dropped off the tour ahead of a trip to Lucas Oil Speedway.
Weeks later, O’Neal landed with a new team. It was created by the family of his girlfriend and put him back in the seat for the rest of the year.
Also in 2020, Shanon Buckingham dropped off the tour to focus on his business. A second car, driven by Robby Moses, remained in action.
Now, for 2021, Hudson O’Neal is set to take over the No. 50 machine at Double Down Motorsports. They’ve also made the switch to Rocket Chassis.
