‘Newport Nightmare’ Takes Lucas Dirt Crown Jewel Cup

BATAVIA, OH — The Arizona Sport Shirts Crown Jewel Cup – Presented by DirtonDirt.com came down to the final race and a tie breaker of most wins in Crown Jewel Cup events. Not only was the tie breaker needed for first and second, but also third and fourth. Jimmy Owens of Newport, TN ended the season tied in points with Tim McCreadie of Watertown, NY but with two wins, Owens had the edge.


“I definitely want to thank Arizona Sport Shirts and DirtonDirt.com for giving us the opportunity to win more money and have something else to shoot for throughout the year,” Owens stated. He also wanted to thank Ramirez Motorsports, Rhino Ag, Boomtest Well Service, Reece Monument Company, Tommy Pope Construction, FK Rod Ends, Sunoco Race Fuels, Red Line Oil, Rocket Chassis, Hypercoil Springs, Integra Shocks, and Midwest Sheet Metal.


The Crown Jewel Cup program awarded points to drivers with perfect attendance throughout the season, at the thirteen crown jewel events within the series schedule, that paid $15,000 or more to the winner. After winning night 1 of the CMH Diamond Nationals presented by Super Clean and the Lucas Oil Late Model Nationals, Owens will receive a $10,000 bonus at the championship awards banquet in December.


While Tim McCreadie did not win a crown jewel event in 2019, his consistency in these races paid off with six top five finishes and eight top ten finishes. McCreadie finished second in Crown Jewel Cup standings and will take home $5,000. Third through fifth, also receiving cash prizes at the championship award banquet – Hudson O’Neal $3,000, Jonathan Davenport $2,000, and Josh Richards $1,000.
