McCreadie Departs Paylor Motorsports To Pursue Other Opportunity

Tim McCreadie, two-time Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series champion, has departed from Paylor Motorsports to pursue another driving opportunity.

Though the team confirmed the news via a Facebook press release on Friday.

“Tim McCreadie recently notified car owners Donald and Gena Bradsher of his intentions to pursue another driving opportunity and effective yesterday (Thursday), is no longer associated with Paylor Motorsports,” the statement read. 

The duo won the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series title in both 2021 and 2022, with McCreadie at the helm of the No. 39 Paylor Motorsports dirt late model. They also finished runner-up in 2020. 

Among their long list of wins are the Firecracker 100, the North/South 100 and the Jackson 100. 

“There is no ill-will at all towards Timmy for pursuing another opportunity,” team owner Donald Bradsher said in a press release. “He is a stand-up guy, a tremendous driver and we accomplished a lot together since we started back in 2020. I would have loved to chase our third Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series title together this year, but he made a decision he feels is best for him personally.” 

With McCreadie leaving the Paylor Motorsports stables, Carson Ferguson will now be the team’s lead driver.
