The ’06 Dodge owned and operated by Joe Dowson is a regular on the central Illinois Work Stock scene, where it had several wins in 2018. Ironically enough, Dowson’s best hook in Lewistown would come while competing in the 2.6 Smooth Bore class, and with the outer duals removed. He squeezed past Patrick Marler’s Ford with a winning distance of 290.65 feet. Later on in the Work Stock field, Dowson wound up in third place after the dust settled.
