  1. Davenport does it again at East Bay's LOLDMS Winternationals TAMPA, FLA (February 9, 2019) - Jonathan Davenport withstood an incredible ten-lap battle to win the Wrisco Industries Winternationals presented by Lucas Oil finale on Saturday night at East Bay Raceway Park. Davenport took the lead for good from Tanner English on lap 45 and scored his third win of the week at "The Clay by the Bay." Davenport came alive in the final 15 laps of the 50-lap main event as he powered his car around the top side of the track. English led the majority of the race, and then battled Davenport in heavy lapped traffic lap after lap. The caution flag waved on lap 47 for Earl Pearson Jr., who was forced to pit for a flat tire. Davenport then dashed to the finish line for his 39th career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win. Tyler Erb slipped by English with two laps to go to finish in second. Devin Moran barely edged out English at the finish line to take third. English led 40 of the 50 laps before coming home in fourth, with Justin Williams scoring the best Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series finish of his career rounding out the top five. "I knew we had a really good car, it was a little bumpier out there tonight. I was just trying not to buzz my tires. I just wanted to save my tires until the last ten laps. We went with a little different set-up tonight," said Davenport, the 35-year-old, two-time National Champion. "The car hasn't felt good the last two nights even though we won," Davenport added. "Tanner did a great job tonight. I have driven that car for Randy [Weaver] and Chip [Stone] so I knew they were going to be tough to outrun. This was a heck of a race track tonight. I really didn't know where to go at the end. I knew Tanner was better on the bottom than I was. I saw there was a little bit of brown in the middle, and the top was getting so dirty. I don't know if there were other guys running up there or not." Erb continued his early season success finishing in the runner-up spot. "I stayed on the bottom for a while, then I moved to the top. The track has been different every night this week. About one out of every five laps I might make up some time. That last caution helped us get by Tanner on the restart. It was another good run we can't be unhappy with second. It's been a really good week, I hate to leave this place." Moran moved his Big River Steel, Dunn Benson Ford, Rocket into fifth place in the championship point standings with his third-place finish. "We just got around up there where nobody else was running. Our car still didn't have the right balance we needed. We just kind of did what we had to do to get up there. We ended the week with three top-five finishes, so we made a lot of progress throughout the week. If we can just start up front, we should be in the contention for a win here soon." The winner's Lance Landers Motorsports, Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by: Nutrien Ag Solutions, ASC Warranty, Spartan Mowers, Penske Racing Shocks, Hoosier Tires, Valvoline, Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas, and Hawkeye Trucks. Completing the top ten were Jimmy Owens, Josh Richards, Shanon Buckingham, Billy Moyer Jr., and Kyle Bronson.

  2. Hudson O'Neal over Pearson in LOLMDS Photo Finish at East Bay TAMPA, FLA (February 7, 2019) - Hudson O'Neal rallied from a lap ten caution to stun the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series field on Thursday night at East Bay Raceway Park. O'Neal charged ahead of race leader Tyler Erb and second-place-running Earl Pearson Jr. with two laps to go to win night four of the Wrisco Industries Winternationals presented by Lucas Oil. Courtesy of LOLMDS PR Using the top groove, the 18-year-old former Lucas Oil Rookie of the Year beat Pearson to the finish line by just .031 seconds to score his first career win at the "Clay by the Bay." He and his father Don join Jack and Jackie Boggs as the only other father-son duo to ever win during the East Bay Late Model Winternationals since the event began in 1978. O'Neal spun in turn four on lap ten to bring out a caution flag. He restarted on the tail and began to make his way through the pack. With six laps to go he was running in ninth, but after Erb and Jonathan Davenport tangled while battling for the lead, the final caution flew for Davenport with 36 laps complete. O'Neal narrowly avoided Davenport whose mangled car was sitting against the wall between turns three and four. On the restart, O'Neal used Davenport's line to motor around both Erb and Pearson on the outside. Pearson snuck under Erb and then tried to make a winning move coming off of turn four, but O'Neal nipped Pearson in one of the closest finishes in Winternationals history. Kyle Bronson led the first eight circuits until Erb, who started third forged ahead. Erb was looking for his third East Bay win of the week and held the advantage through a rash of caution flags. Pearson kept the pressure up on Erb for most of the race which set-up a thrilling finish. "We had a really good car tonight, we just got caught up in that wreck in turn three early on. I thought I kind of took myself out it," said the third-generation racer, O'Neal. "I found something up top. I didn't know if it was good enough to win the race or not. I saw Davenport get up there and then he had his misfortune. I will take any one I can get. He [Davenport] showed me the line. I just took advantage of the leader not knowing what to do." "I started off up top, but I wasn't making up much ground on the leaders," O'Neal added. "Everything has to fall your way in these races to win. I can't thank everybody enough on this race team. Thanks to Todd Burns for giving me this opportunity and for bringing me down here. It's been a pretty tough Speedweeks so far, but tonight has me pumped up for the rest of the week." Pearson continued his string of solid performances with a narrow runner-up finish. "Davenport got going up top, but it was awfully treacherous out there. That's probably one of the closest finishes ever here. I saw Davenport and Erb go out there, but I was going to stay on the bottom. All-in-all it was a good night for the Lucas Oil car." Erb looked like he was on his to way to winning for the fourth time this year, but came home in third. "Going to the top could have won me the race. I never saw Jonathan there. It's just part of racing sometimes. We are just looking forward to the next two nights. We have a really fast car. I am excited to get back here tomorrow night. I just missed the bottom there the last two laps. Congrats to Hudson for coming from so far back to win." The winner's Todd and Vickie Burns-owned SSI Motorsports, Longhorn is powered by a Clements Racing Engine and sponsored by: Dyno One, West Side Tractor Sales, Sub-Surface of Indiana, Tarpy Trucking, VP Fuels, and Crawford Outdoor. Completing the top ten were Tanner English, Morgan Bagley, Brandon Overton, Allen Murray, and Austin Hubbard.

  3. It was announced during Thursday's drivers meeting at East Bay Raceway Park that Scott Bloomquist will face penalties and fines for infractions during Tuesday night's Winternationals event. Bloomquist left the facility on Tuesday night after an incident in his heat race. He did not compete in the B-Main but accepted a series provisional to start the A-Main. Unbeknownst to series officials, Bloomquist was not piloting the #0 during the five-laps the car completed during the A-Main before retiring from the event. Bloomquist will face the following penalties and fines: disqualification from Tuesday's event; loss of TV Race Challenge points earned; earnings from Tuesday's event of $500 will be forfeited and paid to the next eligible provisional (based on Fast Time), Mike Benedum; a $1,000 fine; suspension from Thursday night's program; and will face an indefinite probationary period.
  4. Tyler Erb Continues Early Season Hot Streak TAMPA, FLA (February 5, 2019) - Tyler Erb continued his recent hot streak as he claimed his third victory in only a four-race season thus far on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series tour. Erb dominated the event, leading every lap of the Wrisco Industries Winternationals presented by Lucas Oil on Tuesday night at East Bay Raceway Park. Erb started on the outside of the front row in his Best Performance Motorsports entry and pulled away from the pack at the start of the 30-lap main event. His torrid pace was only slowed by a single caution on lap eight. Earl Pearson Jr. started alongside Erb on the front row. After dropping back as much as a full straightaway at time, he regained his momentum over the second half of the race to bring his Ronnie and Terri Stuckey-owned, Lucas Oil, Black Diamond Chassis home in second. Dennis Erb Jr. earned his best finish of the year by taking third in his Vomac Truck Sales, Rocket. Brandon Sheppard came home in fourth, followed by Jimmy Owens in fifth. Kyle Bronson charged through the field early on, advancing from the ninth starting spot to take control second from Pearson on lap 14. Bronson then held the runner-up spot until Pearson forged ahead soon after. Pearson started to close the gap on Erb as the youngster approached heavy lapped traffic. Pearson chopped several seconds off of the Texan's lead, but Erb skillfully maneuvered through traffic to elude the challenge of Pearson. "I got high in turn four after I was signaled that my lead was getting smaller and smaller. I made the decision to go to the outside to pass cars after seeing [Brandon] Overton do it in front of me. Going to the outside gave us a little leeway and some space to breathe," said the 22-year-old Erb in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. "Like I said last night, driving for this team has been a dream come true. I am probably one of the happiest people in the world right now. I am lucky enough to be able to do this for a living. I just couldn't imagine being with anybody better than this team at the Best [Performance Motorsports] shop. I am really thankful for this opportunity and I am looking forward to the next four nights." The current Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series point leader, Earl Pearson Jr., survived a terrific battle for second-place. "We restarted on the high-side after the caution. All-in-all it was a good night for us. The track was quite a bit different tonight. He [Erb] is really rolling through the corners well, right now. We can catch him in traffic, but in clean air, he is just a little bit better than us right now." Six-time East Bay Winternationals winner, Dennis Erb Jr., had his best finish of the year with a third- place run. "We have kind of struggled here the past few years. Hopefully things keep going in this direction; we have our car running pretty good right now. We need to get it dialed in a little bit better as the week goes on. The race track is in really good condition, we are able to move around a lot. You have to get the set-up right on these cars to get around here." The winner's Eric and Kelly Brock-owned, Best Performance Motorsports Rocket is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by: Roberts Bee Company, New Point Lighting and Design, Bazell Race Fuels, Sunoco, Franklin Enterprises, Valvoline, Keyser, and KBC Graphix.

  5. Texan Tyler Erb scores 2nd LOLMDS win of the young season at East Bay TAMPA, FLA. (February 4, 2019) - Tyler Erb scored his second Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season in the opening night of the Wrisco Industries Winternationals presented by Lucas Oil on Monday Night at East Bay Raceway Park. Courtesy of LOLMDS Erb started on the pole of the main event but did not take the lead until the thirteenth circuit. He was one of four different race leaders, others being Jonathan Davenport, Josh Richards, and Brandon Sheppard. Erb won the thrilling opener by just nine-tenths of a second - holding off Josh Richards, Brandon Sheppard, Austin Hubbard and Don O'Neal en route to his first ever win at the "Clay by the Bay." Defending series champion Jonathan Davenport bolted to the lead at the start of the race and led the first eight laps. Richards then forged ahead for one lap, before Sheppard took command of the race for two circuits. Erb then charged around Sheppard to take the lead for good on lap 13 and pulled away enough to thwart any efforts by Richards and Sheppard. Richards' Clint Bowyer Racing, Peak Antifreeze and Coolant, Rocket and Sheppard's Mark Richards Racing, Valvoline, Rocket battled hard for second in the last 15 laps of the race to join Erb on the podium, with Richards just edging Sheppard at the finish. The Young Texan [Erb] was elated with his second win of 2019 on the tour. "I am super-excited to get this opportunity to work with Randall Edwards, Eric, and Kelly. This is a dream come true for me. I have been dreaming of this chance for a long time and to finally get to this point is very satisfying, but you have to stay hungry. We still have a lot of racing left this year, but we couldn't ask for a better start to the season." "Thanks to Brian at Integra, Wayne Childress at New Point Lighting, Billy Franklin at Franklin Enterprises, Mark Richards at Rocket Chassis, Steven Roberts of Roberts Bee Company, and all of our product sponsors. I'd also like to say a big thanks to the fans who are here and those that watched the broadcast." "It feels really great to win here at East Bay! This is such an historic track. I led two or three races here last year but let them slip away. I could feel Josh underneath me in three and four and I knew that if I lost the race, it wasn't going to be because of a lack of effort." Richards recorded his best finish of the season with his second-place run. "Tyler did a great job out there. I want to thank all the guys who work so hard on the car to get us up front. We had a pretty good car and we made a couple of changes. It was really maneuverable out there. We have been up front in every race so far this year and we can't complain about that." Sheppard, who entered the night with three-career wins at East Bay, finished third. "We had a strong car all night long. It was fun to drive out there on this track tonight. If they have the track like this every night this week, it will be a whole lot of fun. I am sure it was a good show for the fans as well." The winner's Eric and Kelly Brock owned, Rocket Chassis is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by: Best Performance Motorsports, Roberts Bee Company, New Point Lighting and Design, Bazell Race Fuels, Sunoco, Franklin Enterprises, Valvoline, Keyser and KBC Graphix. Completing the top ten were Billy Moyer, Chase Junghans, Jonathan Davenport, Kyle Bronson and Hudson O'Neal.

  6. Davenport, Zeigler, and more honored at Lucas Championship gala INDIANAPOLIS, IND.

  7. McCreadie Stops Pierce for Florence Victory UNION, KY (August 9, 2018) Tim McCreadie broke through on Thursday night at Florence Speedway to win his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event of the season. McCreadie led all 50 laps, holding off Bobby Pierce in the final circuits to take the win in the Sunoco Race Fuels North/South Shootout presented by Lucas Oil. McCreadie, the reigning Sunoco Race Fuels North/South 100 Champion flashed across the line just 0.759 seconds ahead of Pierce. Nick Hoffman, Josh Richards and Scott Bloomquist rounded out the top five. Pierce moved into second with nine laps to go, overtaking Hoffman who had held the position since the opening circuit. Pierce then tracked down McCreadie, but despite a last lap ditch effort to take the win, fell just short of victory. Hoffman, an open wheel modified standout, claimed his first-career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series podium finish. McCreadie, who became the fourteenth different winner on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series in 2018, saluted the fans in victory lane. "Its amazing how things can turnaround. We have kind of meandered around all year. I just haven't driven it good enough this year. These guys have put together a great piece all year. We went back to the chassis and motor combination we ran last year, and it's really paid off the last two nights. I took two weeks off and I was with my family, but the crew have been working their tails off in the downtime we had." "I could see my crew chief Phillip [Snellen] and I could see him telling me that Bobby [Pierce] was closing. I don't know if we could have held him off, but we did. Sometimes I am not the most confident person in the world, it's the crew that keeps me going and family keeps me feeling good at home. This is a tough life for sure. I appreciate all of the fans cheering us, it makes it all worthwhile." Pierce, who made one of his customary late-race charges, came up short in his bid for the win. "That was a lot of fun. I really had to kick-it up there at the end. It was a great track tonight. Thanks to Josh King and the whole track crew they never stopped working on this track all day and night. I am sure another night working on it the track can be even better tomorrow night. Congrats to T-Mac on the win. Thanks to everybody who works on this car at Dunn-Benson Motorsports." Hoffman, who made his first dirt late model start a year ago in the Sunoco Race Fuels North/South 100, earned a hard-fought third-place finish. "It feels good to get two heat wins here the last two nights and then to come back with a podium finish tonight. I had a good car last night. This is something to build on heading into this weekend. He [Pierce] slid me there, he was faster up top, so I just decided not to slide him back." The winner's Coffey-McCreadie Enterprises-owned, Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Pro Power Racing Engine and sponsored by: Sweeteners Plus, Popejoy Inc. Plumbing, Heating and Electric, FK Rod Ends and Penske Shocks. Completing the top ten were Ricky Weiss, Darrell Lanigan, Hudson O'Neal, Earl Pearson Jr. and Dale McDowell.

  8. JACKSON, MINN. (July 18, 2018) - Scott Bloomquist led all 50 laps in the first-ever appearance by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series at Jackson Motorplex. The first Super Late Model event at the half-mile oval in 30 years did not disappoint. Jonathan Davenport and Josh Richards tracked down Bloomquist in the final laps of the race, but came up second and third, respectively. Bobby Pierce was in the hunt the entire race and came home in fourth. Brandon Sheppard recovered from a lap one collision to take the fifth spot. The 54-year-old, three-time Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion went to Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the series-leading seventh time this season. "I don't know what it is because we have no notes going into these first-time tracks. I told the crew when we pulled in that we were a lock for the win. We just came here to rock-and-roll and let her go. This is quite a beautiful facility. The track reminds me a lot of Knoxville. It has the berm on the bottom and you can race on this track. It holds moisture very well. We need to go to more tracks like this. I ran hard out there. I am ready now to head to Nebraska and try to take their $53,000 on Saturday night." Davenport maintains the point lead heading to Nebraska for three nights of racing. "We have gotten better every time we've gone out in the last couple of weeks, the crew has been working hard and we keep improving. That is all you can ask for. What a great facility they have here, they should be proud of it. We had a few gremlins there that raised their head early on. We were better in the long runs. I thought before that last caution I was going to have a shot at the win." Richards earned his second-straight podium finish and was complimentary of the race track and facility. "They have done a tremendous job here with this facility. The track raced great. The bottom was dominant for a while then the top came into it. On one of the restarts my carburetor stumbled there a little bit. We had a good hot-rod tonight. I was watching the water temperature close there at the end. I don't know if Scott slowed up at the end, but me and Davenport really closed in on him. This is a beautiful place. I hope we get to come here more often."

  9. Pearson powers to Brown County LOLMDS victory ABERDEEN, S.D. (July 17, 2018) - Earl Pearson Jr. charged from his eighth starting spot to win Tuesday night's Bullet SportsWear Shootout at Brown County Speedway. South Dakota veteran Scott Ward grabbed the lead at the start of the 50-lap main event and had the packed grandstands on their feet. Ward led the first seven laps of the race until Bobby Pierce took control. Ward fought back regaining the top spot a lap later. Pierce then moved ahead again on lap ten. Pierce and Ward ran one-two until Ward left the track and headed to the pit area on lap 31. The first of two cautions appeared on lap 34 for Brandon Sheppard in turn four. On the restart Jonathan Davenport and Pierce swapped the lead several times. Pearson made his late-race charge to take the lead on lap 42. With just two laps remaining, Pierce slipped off top edge of the track entering turn one. Pearson forged ahead and went on to his fourth victory of the season. Josh Richards edged out Pierce at the finish line for second. Ricky Weiss finished fourth with Don O'Neal completing the top five. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane, Pearson commented: "First off I want to say hi to all of family and friends back in Jacksonville. What a heck of a race there. We fell back to seventh or eighth there for a while. We had to get to the bottom of the track. When we restarted in third, we got high in turn one and I knew I had to get back down low. Bobby was giving it all he had there up top. I could see him and hear his motor and then he disappeared. It was a good points night for sure." Richards got by Pierce on the final lap coming off of turn four. "I hope the fans enjoyed that race. Thanks to everybody who came out tonight. They re-worked and watered the track and that sure helped. I didn't know after the heats what it would be like if they hadn't done anything, but thanks to the track crew. It was a great race." Pierce was disappointed with his finish, after having such a great run all night until late in the race. "I have raced against Scott [Ward] out in Arizona and I know he is a real good racer. I know the crowd was probably behind him. Once I got around him the car was good up top, and I just stayed there. Then we had the restart and Earl got underneath me and we had a real good race for the lead. I just slipped off the track. I had a stuck throttle from about lap four on. Then the last lap it just about died. I slowed way down. I am not sure, but it was something in the motor, but it ran flawless all night until then."

  10. Satterlee Sensational at Muskingum in LOLMDS 50-lapper ZANESVILLE, OHIO (July 3, 2018) - Gregg Satterlee was in complete control from the start of the 50-lap Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series main event on Tuesday night at Muskingum County Speedway. With the dominating victory, Satterlee becomes the 13th different winner this year on the LOLMDS tour and the 12th different winner in 13 appearances at the Donnie Moran-promoted facility. Satterlee jumped to the lead at the start of the main event and never looked back. There was only one caution that slowed the field and that was with 11 laps remaining. On the restart, Satterlee pulled away again from Darrell Lanigan and went on for the convincing win - his second career on the LOLMDS tour. Lanigan finished in second with current LOLMDS points leader Jonathan Davenport taking third. Josh Richards and Hudson O'Neal completed the top five drivers. "It's been a long-time coming. It's so tough to win a race against these guys. You have to take them when they are there. We have struggled this year, but recently we have been running better. My crew chief Robbie Allen and the rest of the crew have worked hard to turn this thing around. It's great to win in front of my family here tonight. My dad, wife, and new daughter are here. This is my daughter's first visit to victory lane. There was a great crowd here tonight and I hope the fans enjoyed the show." Richards ran in second-place for the first two laps until Lanigan went by him. Lanigan then ran in the runner-up slot the remainder of the race. On the final restart of the race Lanigan was lined up beside his Clint Bowyer teammate Don O'Neal. On the restart O'Neal slipped over the edge of the race track forcing him to lose several positions after climbing to as high as third in the running order. "It was a good weekend for the Clint Bowyer Team," said Lanigan who completed his second straight top-five in the LOLMDS. "Don [O'Neal] had two wins and we have two top fives. Hopefully we have turned the corner and can finish the season strong." Davenport, who started 10th made a late-race charge to finish third and maintain the series points lead. "We aren't really worried about the points right now. We just wanted a good finish. We had a good car last night at Sharon and tonight things sort of fell our way tonight and we were able to get a podium finish. I think we can get back on track to where we were earlier in the season. We have a good car. Now we get to head down south to tracks I have run quite a bit, so we will see what happens." The winner's Gary Satterlee-owned Rocket Chassis is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by: Satterlee Petroleum Distributors, Keyser Manufacturing, Valvoline, Classic Ink, AFCO, and Integra.

  11. Bloomquist Bags Sixth Show-Me 100 WHEATLAND, MO (May 26, 2018) - Scott Bloomquist took over the lead on lap 70 and never looked back en route to his sixth career Show-Me 100 on Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway. Jimmy Owens held the point until contact with another car sent him spinning in turn four to bring out a caution flag. Owens then had to go to the tail-end of the lead lap. He later would drop out of the race for a disappointing 23rd-place finish. Mike Marlar forged ahead in the final laps to register a third-place finish, followed by Bobby Pierce and Chris Simpson rounding out the top-five. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the third time this season, Bloomquist commented: "We weren't as good as I wanted to be. Jimmy [Owens] was pretty good there. I really didn't see exactly what happened to him. That was unfortunate for him. We were starting to put a little pressure on him. We were trying to find the groove that would work best. It probably would have been a good race at the end." "It's always better with a clear view of the track. You really aren't watching what he is doing. When you have a guy in front of you, you are always looking for a way around him. You have just got to keep on trying a different line. We could move around quite bit at the end of the race." Shirley celebrated his best-career, Show-Me 100 finish. "We were racing hard there with Jimmy and the lapped cars. When Scott is out front he is pretty hard to beat. All-in-all it was a good weekend for us. I can't thank Bob and Lisa Cullen for all they do for me. Thanks to my wife and kids and my dad back home for watching on TV. We got one big one at Knoxville in the past and we are going to get us another one hopefully soon." Marlar was pleased with his podium finish. "This is a historical event. We started off the week a little rough when I got into the wall in qualifying. My crew went to work and fixed the car and overall it was a good weekend for us. I want to thank my car owner Ronnie Delk for all he does for us. Thanks to Rocket Chassis and Cornett Racing Engines. We'll come back next year and try to get us a win."

  12. Davenport Shines in NAPA North Star Nationals SPRING VALLEY, MN (May 19, 2018) - Jonathan Davenport fended off a late race charge from Bobby Pierce on Saturday night to find Victory Lane in the inaugural NAPA Auto Parts North Star Nationals at Deer Creek Speedway. Pierce settled for a runner-up finish for the second consecutive night, just 0.281 seconds behind the race winner. Chad Simpson finished in third, with Don O'Neal and Scott Bloomquist rounding out the top five. Jimmy Mars bolted to the lead at the start of the main event and led the first 20 laps of the race. A torrid battle between the top four drivers then ensued, with Simpson taking the point on lap 21. Simpson then led until Davenport put himself atop the scoring pylon as the new leader on lap 32. Pierce began to make his late-race surge, taking over the second position and chasing down Davenport in heavy lapped traffic. Heading into turn four on the final lap Pierce threw a slide job in front of Davenport to momentarily take over the lead. As the two raced down the main straightaway to the checkers, Davenport powered his car to the inside of Pierce and beat the youngster to the finish by just a few inches. In addition to his $12,000 first place prize money, Davenport pocketed an $1,000 bonus from NAPA Auto Part. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane, Davenport commented: "First off, thanks to Chad [Simpson], Jimmy [Mars] and Bobby [Pierce] for racing hard and clean out there. That was an awesome race. I knew he [Pierce] was coming for me at the end. The lapped cars were holding us up bad." "I felt like we had a little better car than to make it that close at the end," Davenport added. "I was just trying to hit my marks out there. I went down the back straightaway and I saw my spotter and I knew the slider was coming. I made sure I entered the corner a little softer so that way I could turn back to the inside of him [Pierce]. I saw him out of the corner of my eye, so I knew he was there. I was just hoping I could make it back to the line and not spin the tires. What a great night, this was a turnaround from last night. Thanks to the track crew for a great track tonight and thanks for the fans for coming out." Pierce was still breathless after nearing pulling off the last-lap-last corner win. "Hats off the JD, he ran a heck of a race, he is one of the best on top. It was really great racing and a lot of fun. I only made one mistake out there tonight. I wanted to slide up earlier because he gave me some room. This track is just great. I can't wait to come back here." Chad Simpson was looking for his second-career Lucas Oil victory. "I knew I was in trouble when that caution came out. You know anytime you can run like that against these guys, you have to feel good about yourself. Hats off to the Queensland Family and everybody associated with the track. We always enjoy coming up here to race. It was disappointing when this show was rained out last year. I have a lot of fans over there in turn four. It's good to come up here and put on a good show for them."

  13. Late Pass Propels Pearson at 141 Speedway MARIBEL, WI (May 18, 2018) - Earl Pearson Jr. made the leap into the infield pond on Friday night, a tradition for first-time winners at 141 Speedway. Pearson, in the Ronnie Stuckey-owned, Lucas Oil Products, Black Diamond Chassis passed race-long leader Bobby Pierce on lap 44 and then sped on to win his second Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event on the season. Pierce led the first 43 laps of the 50-lap main event until Pearson made his way underneath the 21-year-old driver of the Dunn Benson Ford, Campbell University, Rocket coming off of turn four. Pearson then quickly pulled away to claim his 34th career LOLMDS victory. Hudson O'Neal's Todd Burns-owned, Dyno One, Club 29 entry came home in third. Jimmy Mars gave his home state their best finish with a fourth-place run, in his career debut at the 141 Speedway. Darrell Lanigan came from 11th to finish in fifth. Pierce grabbed the lead at the start of the race and was looking for his third win of the season. Pierce fought off the challenges of the younger O'Neal early on until he started to pull away. After a caution on lap 26, Pierce had to contend with O'Neal and Josh Richards in a side-by-side battle for several circuits. Pearson then began making his move on the leaders as he took second from O'Neal and started to track Pierce down. On several occasions, Pearson pulled to the rear quarter-panel of Pierce's car but was only able to muscle his way around him with six laps to go. "We got into lapped traffic and I don't know if I could have done anything with him [Pierce]. We just rode around the bottom and you had to be patient. You just had to stay on those tires. He [Pierce] is one heck of a race-car driver. To run first and second tonight, this finish is for Carlton Lamm. I have a friend back home who is in pretty bad shape and this one's for him as well," said the 46-year-old veteran driver in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. "I hope the fans saw one heck of a show tonight. It was pretty racy for the first time being here. I think we all learned what to do next time we are here at this track. We just took our time and made all the right moves. All the Dunn-Benson Team does a great job. Whether he won, or I won I know it was for Carlton." Pierce commented on his race as well, "We had a good car here tonight. I don't know what happened, the longer the race went I got looser and looser. That turn three was actually kind of tricky a few times. You had to miss the corner to come off good. I missed it way too much there at the end. Congrats to Earl on the win." Hudson O'Neal, who started alongside his father, Don in row two, enjoyed a podium finish. "I was pretty good there early in the race. I stayed there with Bobby for the first 25 laps of the race and then Josh [Richards] got up there and we had a good race. Thanks to my crew for all of the hard-work they have done on this car. To get another podium finish is great for the team." Rounding out the top ten were Scott Bloomquist, Josh Richards, Don O'Neal, Cade Dillard, and Jonathan Davenport.

  14. Owens' misfortune spells LOLMDS victory for Davenport TAZEWELL, TN (May 4, 2018) - The fastest car doesn't always win the race and that was the case in the Toyota Knoxville 50 on Friday night at Tazewell Speedway. Jonathan Davenport inherited the lead when Jimmy Owens left the race on lap 46 with terminal issues. Davenport then held off a hard-charging Tim McCreadie for his fifth series win of the season. McCreadie finished a close second, with Don O'Neal coming home in third. Dennis Erb Jr. and Earl Pearson Jr. rounded out the top five. Courtesy of LOLMDS PR Owens bolted to the lead at the start of the event and dominated much of the race in the Ramirez Motorsports entry. He led by almost a straightaway on several occasions as Davenport and McCreadie battled for second. No one appeared to have anything for Owens, who was looking for the sixth Toyota Knoxville 50 win of his career. Unfortunately, with four laps to go Owens retreated to the pits off turn four in a cloud of smoke. McCreadie pressured Davenport in the final laps, but Davenport held on for first Tazewell Speedway victory since his record-setting 2015 season. "I hate for anybody to have any bad luck, especially when you are leading. We were running second there at the end, early on I don't know if I could have gotten by Josh Richards or Jimmy Owens." Richards pulled out of the race on lap 18 while running second to Owens. "I don't know how much Jimmy was saving. This place is so fast. The top went away, and the bottom was coming back in at the end. Man, I love this place. I didn't see anything coming from the 20 car. I thought he had a tire going down or something. Josh was smoking for several laps there early on. Man, it was heartbreak for those two. We will take it, it was a good points night for us." "Thanks to Lance Landers for putting together this wonderful race team. The sky is the limit. The first time I ever came here I loved it. This place is so unique. There is nothing like it. I wish we could come back here two or three times." McCreadie's Sweeteners Plus, Longhorn maintained for a solid podium finish. "We had a good race there with JD. He [Davenport] got by me and then I was pinned in the middle. We just didn't get any breaks tonight. We had a good enough car to win. This is my best run here, so I am happy. " O'Neal in the Peak Antifreeze and Coolant, Club 29 reached the podium again with his third-place run. "It was a good solid run for us. Man, I thought I had something for them. We were a little too free. It was a good points night for us. We will head to Florence tomorrow where we have had a lot of success in the past."

  16. Pierce Goes Back to Back with LOLMDS in Illinois MACON, IL (April 28, 2018) - Going back-to-back with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, Bobby Pierce fought his way to victory at Macon Speedway on Saturday night. Pierce held off a fiercely challenging Ryan Unzicker to win the St. Louis U-Pic-A-Part 100. Unzicker briefly took the lead coming off of turn number four on lap 93, but Pierce battled back regaining the top spot a lap later. Pierce held off a furious charge from Unzicker on the final lap to score the win. Shannon Babb took third, as the home state drivers swept the top three finishers. Jonathan Davenport came home in third just ahead of Josh Richards, last year's event winner. In Lucas Oil Victory lane for the seventh time in his career, Pierce commented on his win. "Heading into the weekend I didn't think I would win two races. If I did win one I thought it might be here. I got a little nervous there in traffic and then I hit the wall coming out of turn four. I think Big C was looking down on me after that. Man, I am glad to be back home. We go to so many tracks this year that I have never been to before. You have got to have laps at these tracks and fortunately the last two nights that was the case. There is nothing that compares to this track. Just glad to get these wins, thanks to all my crew, family and sponsors," said the 21-year-old before an appreciative crowd. Unzicker thrilled the crowd with his daring moves throughout the race. "I couldn't beat him [Pierce] in a Pierce car and now I can't in the Rocket he's driving. He [Pierce] is a tough competitor. Glad to see him back here. He has a nice team there. We have been busting our tails in the garage and it paid off here tonight. This is one of my favorite tracks to run on. I feel like our programs been pretty good and the finish tonight just proves it." Babb was in the hunt the entire distance as he came home in third. "I felt like we had a pretty good car. I was just biding my time there. I just let the laps go by. Ryan was good on the restarts. We got into traffic and he [Unzicker] got by me. It was a really good race and to run good here it's always nice to come home again."

  17. Bloomquist banks first LOLMDs Port Royal victory PORT ROYAL, PA (April 22, 2018) - Scott Bloomquist continued his hot-streak on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, winning Sunday night's Rumble by the River at Port Royal Speedway. Bloomquist took the lead on lap two and never looked back en route to his 88th career series victory. Josh Richards fought back to finish in second with Earl Pearson Jr. taking third. Tim McCreadie and Darrell Lanigan completed the top five drivers. Jimmy Owens led the first lap until Bloomquist, who started fourth on the grid, wrestled the lead away from him on the second circuit. Owens maintained the second spot until a coil spring broke on lap 17, ending his night. McCreadie picked up the second spot as he and Richards then dueled it out for the runner-up position. The final caution of the race bunched the field up with 2 laps remaining. Richards tried valiantly in the green-white-checker finish, but Bloomquist was just too strong as he held on for his first career win at Port Royal Speedway. "We have run really well since Florida. Last weekend, we had a win and a second-place finish, and this weekend a second and a win. The car, the engine, the shocks, everything is working well," said the 54-year-old Bloomquist in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. "We had good rotation, it carried around the high-line tonight. The car could work low, the middle, or high. I tried to run up high in three and four because my momentum would be really good off the turn-4 corner. When we had to go to the bottom to pass lapped cars we could. Thanks to Randy Sweet and everybody at Sweet Manufacturing." "This really is a great race track. We hadn't had a victory here, but I really enjoyed running on it. There were some crumbs on the track early. It has a lot of character, and you really have to be up on the wheel to drive this place. I think I figured out the high-line pretty good tonight." Richards maintains second-place in the points with his runner-up finish. "We had a great car tonight; those restarts weren't very good for us, but we recovered and gave the Best Performance Team a good finish tonight. Last night at Hagerstown we had a rough night. We worked on some things today. If it could have gone caution free it might have been a different story. This place is so fun to drive on. Thanks to all the fans for coming out tonight. I wish we could race here tomorrow." It was a hard-fought third-place finish for Pearson. "Josh and I had a good race for second there at the end. McCreadie and him ran side-by-side there for a long-time. Thanks to everybody here at Port Royal and thanks to all the fans who came out on a Sunday night to watch us race. This is a heck of a race track, wish we could do a two-day show here."

  18. Davenport Rules Bubba Raceway Park OCALA, FL (February 11, 2018) - Jonathan Davenport's return to the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series in 2018 is off to a superb start, capturing his third series win of the year on Sunday night at Bubba Raceway Park. Davenport became the third different leader of the 50-lap main event when he took the top spot for good on lap five from Tyler Erb. Tim McCreadie and Erb started on the front row, with McCreadie leading the first two laps until Erb forged in front on lap three. When Davenport went by Erb two laps later, he never looked back, but was challenged late in the race by Earl Pearson Jr. Earl Pearson Jr.'s Lucas Oil, Black Diamond Chassis finished in second with last year's Lucas Oil Rookie of the Year, Hudson O'Neal coming home in third. Jimmy Owens was fourth with Kyle Bronson taking fifth. "I thought I was going to turn over at the start. I didn't know that hole was quite as big as it was," said the 34-year-old winner in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. "Tyler [Erb] had a harder tire on at the start and I knew it wouldn't fire after a few restarts. Our car was really good through the middle of the race. The slime came back up just a little bit. Then the rubber came back really really hard. I was just trying to protect my right rear tire. I was grinding on the right front and then I started to feel it vibrate." "You are always concerned about tire wear at this track. This place is so oddly-shaped. You could bounce in turn one and then in three you had to be easy. If you went in too hard, you would just slide out. There is a lot going on in the cockpit that a lot of people can't see." The Lance Landers Motorsports team's winning car is sponsored by: Crop Production Services, Spartan Mowers, Valvoline, ACS Warranty, Penske Racing Shocks, Midwest Sheet Metal and Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas. His Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Durham Racing Engine. Pearson had his best finish of the season with a runner-up position to Davenport. Pearson closed on Davenport in the final laps to make the final outcome close. "I knew that both of us were on soft tires," said Pearson, who was referring to Davenport's choice of tire as well. "I didn't have much of a tire left. I just started riding to the end." Hudson O'Neal made his second podium finish of the week. "I think I had a little bit more of a tire left than those guys ahead of me. I didn't know if anybody was closing in on me. I am very happy with this third-place finish after the week we had at East Bay. We struggled all of last week.

  19. Overton Strikes at East Bay TAMPA, FL (February 7, 2018) - Brandon Overton took the lead on lap 26 from Josh Richards and led the remaining 14 laps to capture his first career East Bay Raceway Park win on Wednesday night. The 42nd Annual Wrisco Industries Winternationals - presented by E3 Spark Plugs produced another spectacular feature race, as the 40-lapper saw three different leaders, and lots of action throughout the field. Heath Lawson photo Overton's third career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory came over Josh Richards, Gregg Satterlee, Jonathan Davenport, and Bobby Pierce. Overton pilots the Chip Stone and Randy Weaver-owned Longhorn Chassis and started on the outside of the front row. He fell back to as far as fourth in the opening laps of the race, as a torrid battle between Jimmy Owens and Richards took place in front of him. Owens led the first three laps, before relinquishing the top spot to Richards. Overton worked his way back into the top three as he passed Satterlee and then set his sights on Richards. Overton chased down Richards passing him for the lead. Richards and Satterlee tried to run down Overton late in the race, but Overton crossed the line in first to give Longhorn Chassis back-to-back wins for the week. "I probably don't have 100 laps total in racing at this track. We have had so much stuff go wrong in these two weeks. We had to borrow an engine from Randy Clary just to run this week. This track changes so much, but it's bad to the bone for sure. We nearly got Jonathan [Davenport] for the win last night and to start on the front row tonight I thought was going to help, but we lost some spots at the start. We were able to gain some ground on those guys up front and the cautions helped as well. I got underneath Josh [Richards] there a few times before I passed him. It's great to finally get a win here! Again, we haven't run here that much in the past, but I am really looking forward to the rest of the week." Richards tried to stay close to Overton but wound up holding off Satterlee for the runner-up position. "We are going in the right direction," said the defending Lucas Oil National Champion. "Congratulations to Brandon on the win, he earned it. Our car was getting much better tonight as we keep tweaking on it. We should be really good by the end of the week when the points start back up." Satterlee had a solid run going on Tuesday night and was pleased with his third-place finish tonight. "We had a good race car last night. We didn't get the finish we wanted, so we worked on some things today to make it better, and it was. I thought I could get under Josh for a moment, but to finish third with these guys, that says a lot. Thanks everyone who helps us out, we appreciate it."

  20. Sheppard Edges Moran in East Bay Opener TAMPA, FL (February 5, 2018) - Brandon Sheppard passed Devin Moran coming off turn four on the final lap to win the opening night of the Wrisco Industries 42nd Annual Winternationals - Presented by E3 Spark Plugs. The 30-lap, Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event saw four different leaders. Moran held the top spot at two different points and finished in second, with Earl Pearson, Jr. claiming the third position. Jonathan Davenport was in contention for the win until the end when he came home fourth. Scott Bloomquist romped from his eighteenth-place starting spot to finish fifth. "I really didn't find anything, it was treacherous getting off the corners. I had to get off the bottom in the brown. It's tricky. I guess I never lifted on that last lap. My dad texted Mark [Richards] before the race and told him to get on me and that I needed to get up on the wheel more," said the former Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Rookie of the Year. "I knew my dad was at home watching on television. I can't thank Mark Richards and Steve Baker enough for what they have done for me, and everybody at Rocket Chassis as well. It's a dream come true to drive for them. My dad and my grandpa have always supported me, and I appreciate that." Kyle Bronson started from the pole and led the first lap of the event until Moran forged ahead. Josh Richards then picked up the pace as he took the lead for the first time on lap thirteen. Richards led three circuits until Sheppard appeared at the head of the field for the first time on lap sixteen. Two circuits later, Moran regained the point and looked to be on his way to first career win at "The Clay by the Bay." However, Moran was forced to battle lapped traffic entering turn three on the final lap, allowing Sheppard to go high on the track and beat Moran to the finish line by a narrow margin. Moran was pleased with his second-place finish, but disappointed he didn't get that first win at the 1/3-mile oval. "It was an awesome race. With all the rain they got yesterday, Al [Varnadore] did a great job with the track. It would have been better if we would have won. My dad [Donnie] and brother [Wylie] were at home tonight and I had my brother Tristan here. It was a good run. We will come back tomorrow and try to improve one more spot," said the driver of the Tye Twarog-owned, Eddie's Sunoco, Rocket. The Ronnie Stuckey Enterprises, Black Diamond, Lucas Oil entry driven by Earl Pearson Jr. battled amongst the top five the entire race before crossing the finish line in third. "Those kids up front put on a good show, that's for sure," smiled Pearson afterwards. "For the first night here at East Bay we will take this and build from there. That was a heck of a show in front of me. They were dicing it out, back and forth, the fans had to enjoy that one." Sheppard's winning Mark Richards Racing-owned, Rocket Chassis entry is powered by an Andy Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by: Valvoline, Seubert Calf Ranches, Gunter's Honey, Integra Racing Shocks, Ace Metal Works, Sallack Well Service, and Sunoco Race Fuels.

  21. Richards wins Exciting Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series season opener BRUNSWICK, GA (February 2, 2018) - The 2018 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series season kicked off in grand fashion on Friday night of the RhinoAg Super Bowl of Racing - presented by General Tire. Defending series champion Josh Richards earned a hard-fought victory over 2017 Rookie-of-the Year, Hudson O'Neal. Courtesy of LOLMDS Richards took the lead from Jonathan Davenport on lap five and then held off a furious late-race charge from the 15th-place starting O'Neal. O'Neal made what appeared to be a winning pass on Richards in turns three and four on the final lap, but Scott Bloomquist was sitting in the middle of turn four and brought out a caution, negating O'Neal's pass for the lead. In the end, Richards was able to hold off O'Neal to score his twenty-third career LOLMDS victory. The driver of the Best Performance Motorsports car took the first event of the season over O'Neal, Davenport, Jimmy Owens, and Brandon Sheppard. Richards and Davenport exchanged the lead three times in the first five laps of the 50-lap main event, with Richards forging ahead. Owens challenged Davenport for third, and finally got by him. Owens ran in second for several laps until O'Neal and Davenport got around him late in the race. Richards breathed a sigh of relief in Lucas Oil Victory Lane, "I knew I was a sitting duck, I didn't pay attention to the scoreboard. I thought I was protecting the top from Davenport making the pass and here comes Hudson on the bottom. He got to the bottom of the burm in turn three and got by, but then the caution came out." "We were too tight to steer down off turn two. I thought I had lost the race. Fortunately, the caution came out and we were able to hold him [O'Neal] off on the last lap. It is a great way to start the season. We didn't run Gateway and Arizona like some of the guys did. We were getting ready for this. There really isn't an off-season anymore. If the race stays green, he [O'Neal] would have had us." While the 17-year-old O'Neal was denied his first career LOLMDS feature, he was happy with his close call. "I just wish we hadn't started so far back. We probably had the fastest car during the race. Yes, it was a desperate pass there on Josh on that final lap and then I saw the caution flag and said oh no. We can build on this. It is just a matter of time before we get that first Lucas Oil win." Davenport was looking for his fourth career win at Golden Isles, and felt he had a good run for his new race team, owned by Lance Landers. "This is a new engine combo that I haven't run before. It will take a little bit of time to get used to that. I didn't cut up my right rear tire enough. I was hoping some cars would run the top and help clean it off more. It was a great run for us and we will back tomorrow night after making some adjustments." Completing the top ten were Earl Pearson Jr., Tim McCreadie, Kyle Bronson, Mason Zeigler, and Don O'Neal.

  22. Josh Richards earns Lucas Oil National Championship BATAVIA, OH (October 27, 2017) After capturing his first-career Dirt Track World Championship victory at Portsmouth (Ohio) Raceway Park, Josh Richards of Shinnston, WV clinched the 2017 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Championship. Richards entered the season finale trailing points leader Tim McCreadie of Watertown, NY, by 40-points, but his $100,000 triumph and McCreadie's seventeenth-place finish, propelled him to his first-career Lucas Oil title. He joins Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN, as the only drivers to claim both Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series championships. "I don't know if it's quite hit me yet," Richards said. "God is so good. I can't even explain it. We made the switch last year, which was a very difficult decision. Eric and Kelly Brock, they gave me the opportunity. I didn't know how we were going to do, what we were going to do." "But fast-forward to now, to look at the year we've had and to be in this position, I think it all hit us at once. We were so happy for the championship and I'm like, 'Oh wow, we just won a big race, too.' To cap it off like this, with this [throwback car] and everything ... it couldn't have been scripted any better." Richards reached Victory Lane on ten (10) different occasions and finished in the top five in twenty-eight (28) Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series events in 2017. Piloting the Best Performance Motorsports, Rocket Chassis - powered by a Durham Racing Engine, the 29-year-old will collect over $75,000 in cash and other prizes at the series year-end awards banquet. Richards' #1 entry is sponsored by: Bulk Material Lift.com, Corey Frazier-State Farm Insurance, Alexander Lawn and Landscaping, Ultimate Firepit, Sunoco Race Fuels, Integra Shocks, Keyser Manufacturing, Riggs Motorsports, and Valvoline.

  23. Richards Wins Dirt Track World Championship; Clinches First Lucas Oil Title PORTSMOUTH, OH (October 21, 2017) - Josh Richards completed a dream night at Portsmouth Raceway Park on Saturday night. The West Virginia native won his first-career Rhino Ag Dirt Track World Championship - Presented by Optima Batteries, worth $100,000, and the 2017 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Championship, worth $75,000. Courtesy of LOLMDS PR Richards became the fourth different leader of the race when he passed race leader and defending DTWC winner, Brandon Sheppard for the lead after a lap 46 restart. Richards led the rest of the way to take his tenth series win of the season over Sheppard, Jonathan Davenport, Mike Marlar, and Jared Hawkins. Jonathan Davenport started on the pole and led early on. Sheppard took over the point on lap 36, and then began pulling away from the field until a caution on lap 46 slowed his pace. On the restart, Richards; who was running third; went around Sheppard to take over the lead and stayed in front until the checker flag waved. Tim McCreadie entered the race as the series point leader by 40 points over Richards and 75 ahead of Bloomquist. During the race McCreadie suffered two flat tires and Bloomquist had a tire go down while running second to Richards. Bloomquist finished the race in 12th and McCreadie was credited with a 17th place finish. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane after the biggest win of his career, the 29-year-old was emotional when being interviewed. "I have to collect my thoughts right now. I can't thank everyone enough for this opportunity. I made a tough decision last year to switch teams. We didn't know what was going to happen. We started the year off well, and then we went to a bunch of new tracks and kind of fell off a little. We struggled a little bit, but so did those other guys. We got on a hot streak in July though." "Coming into this weekend we felt pretty good and I know Scott [Bloomquist] and Timmy [McCreadie] did too. Thanks to Best Performance Motorsports, Eric and Kelly Brock for giving me this opportunity. It's been a crazy year. Randall Edwards has done such a great job as crew chief. There are so many people behind this team and that supported me. I felt everything in the last four or five laps. I have been through this scenario enough to know. I knew the tires were slipping away, but fortunately they held up to the end." The Best Performance Motorsports, Rocket Chassis entry is powered by an Andy Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by: Bulk Material Lift.com, Corey Frazier-State Farm Insurance, Alexander Lawn and Landscaping, Ultimate Firepit, Sunoco, Integra, Keyser, Riggs Motorsports, and Valvoline. Sheppard, the runner-up and defending DTWC winner, joined Richards in Victory Lane with another podium finish in the crown jewel event. "We had a pretty good car. Josh got around me on that restart and he did a good job out in front. I look up to him a lot. I drive for his dad. It's been a dream come true driving for Mark [Richards], we have had a great year. Being able to learn from Josh has been great. We would have liked to get the win tonight, but there's nobody else I'd like to finish second to than Josh." Davenport, who was sporting the Flintstone Flyer scheme commemorating the late Mike Duvall, came home in third in the G.R. Smith-owned, Rocket Chassis entry. "Congrats to Josh and Brandon on their run tonight. We were good early on. I just don't have this place down pat yet for some reason. We keep getting closer." Completing the top ten were Zack Dohm, Chub Frank, Brandon Overton, Darrell Lanigan, and Dennis Erb Jr. Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Race Summary Saturday, October 21st, 2017 RhinoAg Dirt Track World Championship -

  24. Lucas Oil National Championship to be decided this weekend! BATAVIA, OH (October 17, 2017) - Three of the nation's top dirt late model drivers are locked into an unprecedented three-man battle for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Championship. The tightest points chase in series history will be decided this weekend at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio. Courtesy of LOLMDS PR Tim McCreadie of Watertown, NY enters the weekend leading the Lucas Oil championship standings by 40-points over Josh Richards of Shinnston, WV and 75-points ahead of Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN. The continued consistency of Tim McCreadie lifted him into the championship points lead for the first time after his third-place finish at Rome (GA) Speedway on October 1st. "It feels great to be the point leader going into the season finale, we just need to close it out strong," said McCreadie. "This team has worked so hard all year and it has come to crunch time. This is what we have all worked so hard for, a championship." Josh Richards had held the championship points lead from early July through the October 1st event at Rome Speedway. The 29-year-old is looking forward to the $100,000-to-win DTWC at Portsmouth, where he won a 50-lap main event earlier this year. "I can't believe we're really in this position at the end of the year because we had some bad runs where I was just trying to figure things out," commented Richards. After running [Portsmouth] the last couple times, I feel good there. But that's one of Scott's best tracks and McCreadie was good there this year, too, so it's just a crapshoot. With the format in the heat races, that's going to throw a monkey wrench in it. But we just have to go race. That's what got us here to begin with." Bloomquist saw his hopes for a second consecutive and fourth overall series title take a major hit at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway, after contact with the outside wall on lap 13 ultimately resulted in him finishing 24-laps down in 18th place, dropping him to third in the championship standings. "It's going to be a tough road after Portsmouth, but it has been a great season and we're going to keep digging," Bloomquist commented. The 37th Annual Rhino Ag Dirt Track World Championship - Presented by Optima Batteries will get underway on Thursday night, October 19th with preliminary events for the Modified division. On Friday night, October 20ththe Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will take to the track for Hot Laps and two rounds of qualifying Heat Races. Saturday night's program will include: Late Model B-Mains, the $4,000-to-win Modified feature, the $3,000-to-win DirtonDirt.com Jim Dunn Memorial Non-Qualifier race, and the 100-lap, $100,000-to-win Dirt Track World Championship main event. "The intensity of our season finale is greater than ever," said Rick Schwallie, Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Director. "Fans are sure to be on the edge of their seat all weekend in anticipation of who will come out on top. We are looking forward to a thrilling finish to what has been a great year for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series in 2017." For additional information, visit: www.thedtwc.com or www.lucasdirt.com.
  25. Don O'Neal paces Pittsburgher field for $20,000 LOLMDS victory IMPERIAL, PA (October 7, 2017) Don O'Neal completed a weekend sweep, winning the 29th Annual Pittsburgher 100 on Saturday night at Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. O'Neal led from start to finish to collect $20,000 for his first career win in the annual event. It was O'Neal's second Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season as he led his Clint Bowyer teammate Darrell Lanigan in a one-two sweep for the NASCAR team owner. Josh Richards, the defending race winner came home in third. Courtesy of LOLMDS PR Richards' third-place finish moved him into second-place in the championship point standings with one race to go. Richards is now 40 points behind the leader, Tim McCreadie, who finished sixth in the race. Scott Bloomquist finished 18th and is now third in championship standings at 75 points behind McCreadie. O'Neal waited through several caution flags during the race to score the win. O'Neal was untouchable after the restarts as nobody was within striking distance of him at any point during the race. O'Neal had a scare with a lapped car with two laps to go as he nearly got into the turn one wall. He escaped the mayhem unscathed and went on for a dominating victory. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane, O'Neal commented on the roll his team is currently on. "Another podium finish sounds good, and this time we got the win," said O'Neal. "Last week, we had two runner-up finishes and tonight the car was just fantastic, in fact all weekend long it was just perfect." O'Neal completed the weekend sweep at Pittsburgh by setting a new track record and scoring a convincing win in his heat race in Friday night's preliminaries. "I would like to thank Clint and Casey Bowyer and everybody back at the shop, as well as Anthony Burroughs and Keir Hoover, they deserve all the credit. I wish we could go back to Speedweeks and start the season over." O'Neal's Club 29 Race Car is powered by Cornett Racing Engine and is sponsored by Peak Antifreeze and Coolant, Crawford Outdoor, Cometic Gasket, Clint Bowyer Autoplex, Traeger Wood Fire Grills, Penske Shocks, Sunoco, and I-Racing.com Lanigan and his I-Racing.com Club 29 followed his teammate to the line. "We have been really solid here recently, and it's a great way to end the season. Congrats to Don on the win. Thanks to Clint and Casey Bowyer and all my crew." Richards and his Best Performance Motorsports, Rocket was looking for his third win in the famed event and ran as high as second, but eventually claimed the third finishing spot. "We had a good car tonight. There was quite a race among the top five after Don [O'Neal]. He [O'Neal] was unbeatable here tonight. This was a good points finish for us. We'll head to Portsmouth with at least a decent shot at the title." Completing the top ten were Tim McCreadie, Hudson O'Neal, Boom Briggs, Mason Zeigler, and Rick Eckert.
