AMHERST - Amherst's Ryan Mackintosh placed 12th during a 20-lap feature last week in Bandolero racing in North Carolina.
After finishing seventh at Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, N.C. on June 6, Mackintosh headed to Lowe's Motor Speedway as part of the Summer Shootout Series. He finished second in a rookie race by less than a car length after starting on the back row.
He started 24th in a field of 27 in the feature after a poor showing in the heats, racing his way up to eighth in the main event before settling for 12th.
The 13-year-old will be racing in at least five more shootout events with the Chris Woods Racing Team out of Kannapolis, N.C.
Driving the Scotia Hyundai and Amherst Napa Bandolero, Mackintosh is also a developmental driver with the Dan Synder Racing Team in Mooresville, N.C.
