Dale McDowell pocketed $12,000 on Hoosiers Saturday night.COLUMBUS, MS (April 3) -- The 12th annual "James King Memorial" race was contested this past weekend at Mississippi's Columbus Speedway with Dale McDowell coming from the fourth starting position to capture the $12,000 win on Hoosier tires. McDowell, who hails from Chickamauga, GA, now becomes the 11th different winner of the event with Freddy Smith being the only two-time winner of the annual race. Smith also competed in the memorial race Saturday on Hoosier tires.

Despite being outnumbered in the pits, Team Hoosier still managed to claim the top two spots in qualifying with Billy Moyer and Ray Cook. Moyer's time was a scant 14.42 seconds around the 3/10-mile track. The top spot was also worth and extra $500 to Moyer for circling the Columbus track fastest among the 42 entrants. 

All told, Hoosier shod drivers claimed three out of the top four and five of the top eight qualifying positions. Dale McDowell qualified fourth, while Randle Chupp and Wendell Wallace were seventh and eighth, respectively, on Hoosiers. Each of the top Hoosier-shod qualifiers rode on Hoosier's *D55* tire on all four corners.

When the 65-lap race was over, Dale McDowell had emerged the winner using three Hoosier *D55* tires and one standard D55 tire. McDowell took the lead from fellow Hoosier-shod driver Billy Moyer on the 29th circuit and went on to lead the remainder of the event to claim the $12,000 top prize.  

Other top ten finishers using four Hoosiers were Billy Moyer in fourth, Scott Bloomquist in fifth and Wendell Wallace in eighth. Congratulations to all the competitors--particularly those who trusted the Hoosier brand to carrying them to the finish line.
