McCreadie Outduels Lanigan For First WoO Triumph
Of 2010 At Swainsboro
SWAINSBORO, Ga. - May 1. It was finally Tim McCreadie's turn to celebrate in Victory Lane.
Ratifying his return to championship contender status on the World of Outlaws Late Model Series, McCreadie scored
his first tour win of 2010 by outdueling Darrell Lanigan in Saturday's 50-lap A-Main at Swainsboro Raceway.
McCreadie started outside of Lanigan on the race's front row and spent virtually the entire distance battling for
the top spot with his fellow former WoO LMS champion. Lanigan grabbed the lead from McCreadie on lap 29, but
McCreadie regained command on lap 40 and held on for dear life over the remaining circuits.

A regular on the WoO LMS for the first time since capturing the tour's title in 2006, McCreadie drove his
Sweeteners Plus Rocket car across the finish line 0.428 of a second ahead of Lanigan's Rocket mount. He became the
ninth different winner in 10 tour events this season and moved into the points lead.
"It was my day I guess," said McCreadie, who earned $10,675 for his 13th career win on the WoO LMS. "Darrell might
have had the better car, but we got lucky enough to get to the lead and get a win."
