  1. Jimmy Owens repeats as Late Model Knoxville Nationals Champ KNOXVILLE, Iowa (September 14, 2019) - Jimmy Owens became just the second driver in the history of the Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals to win the $40,000 event in back-to-back years. The 47-year-old Tennessee veteran did the trick on Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway. Jimmy Owens with Brandon Sheppard (L) and Hudson O'Neal (R) (HeathLawsonPhotos.com) Owens joins fellow Volunteer State driver Mike Marlar as the only drivers in the 16-year-history of the crown jewel event to win in consecutive years. Owens took the lead from Brandon Sheppard on lap 86 and held off one final charge from Sheppard coming off of turn four to take the win. Sheppard finished in second with Hudson O'Neal charging from the back after making two pit stops to Owens and Sheppard on the podium. Devin Moran, in his first start in the Knoxville finale, finished in fourth with Kyle Bronson coming from his 20th starting position to round out the top five drivers. Polesitter, Shane Clanton grabbed the lead at the start of the event with fellow front-row starter Darrell Lanigan running in second. Those two ran 1-2 for the first 44 laps of the race until Sheppard was able to get by Lanigan after a lap 44 caution. Clanton led the first 55 circuits of the race until a restart on lap 56 allowed Chris Madden to become the first car to lead other than Clanton. Madden was seeking his first Knoxville win after being absent from the speedway for nearly twelve years. Once in front, Madden started to pull away from Clanton. Clanton slowed on lap 72 with a broken axle, bringing his night to an end. On the restart, Sheppard became the third different leader of the race as he zipped around the top to take over the lead from Madden. Like Madden did before him, Sheppard was pulling away from the field. However, the race for the top spot was far from over. Owens took second on lap 80 from Madden in swift fashion but was still several car lengths behind Sheppard. With 20 laps remaining, Owens found the momentum he was looking for, and with that rally he began slicing into Sheppard's huge lead. The laps were winding down in rapid-fire fashion, and Owens was ready to pounce. He darted under Sheppard with fourteen laps to go and wrestled the lead away from the fellow Rocket Chassis driver. Sheppard was not done though. Owens had to battle traffic in front of him and Sheppard was able to make one last-lap ditch effort to steal the win from Owens, but came up just short at the finish line. Owens started 18th and made history in event as no other driver has ever started that deep in the pack and managed a victory. "We had a really good car. We had to be married to that top way more than I wanted to, but our tires fired up and we got going really well. We chased Sheppard down in lapped traffic and we had one opportunity to get by him, so we took it the best we could. On that last lap I could hear him [Sheppard]. I didn't know if he was above me or below me. I figured if he was below me, he couldn't get around me so I just scooted down the track a little bit to kill his line coming off of turn four and I thought, well heck if it's going to be a drag-race, maybe we can beat him to the line." Sheppard once again felt the disappointment of coming up just short of his and car owner Mark Richards' first win at Knoxville. "That was the most fun I have had in a race car in a while. Jimmy did a heck of a job and my hat is off to him. He was there when he needed to be. There were a few things during the race that made me run harder than I wanted to. I am just disappointed; we had a really fast race car." Hudson O'Neal came home with his best career Knoxville Nationals finish. "We were somewhere around 15th-20th place for most of the race. We made a pit-stop before the fuel-stop and I think it really brought the car to life. It definitely got the car a whole lot better because it was more maneuverable. I had some good restarts, and I think on that last one, we drove past four cars through the middle. Everything has to line up to drive from the back like that.

  2. Ricky Weiss powers to first career Knoxville LOLMDS victory KNOXVILLE, Iowa (September 13, 2019) - Ricky Weiss passed Chris Madden on lap sixteen and went on to record his first career win at Knoxville Raceway on Friday night. The 30-year-old Canadian racer became the 17th different winner on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series tour this season. Weiss started on the pole but fell to second behind Madden on the opening lap - trailing the South Carolina racer for the first fifteen laps of the 25-lap main event. Madden got bogged down in heavy traffic and that allowed Weiss to slip by for the lead. Madden rallied to make a final attempt to overtake Weiss on the final lap but came up short of his fifth Lucas Oil win of the season. Josh Richards brought the Clint Bowyer Racing, Rocket home in third after starting in eleventh. Iowa native Tyler Bruening recorded his best career finish at Knoxville by taking fourth and Don O'Neal completed the top five. "It's awesome to be in Victory Lane here at Knoxville," said Weiss. "We haven't been able to capture the big one here yet, but this is our chance. After last night, we were happy with that. We were locked into the show for Saturday and we debated switching cars tonight and trying something. Shawn [Gage] didn't want to, because he knew this car is good and he has the confidence in me to keep it in one piece." Weiss added: "Everytime we touch the track; it gets better and better. I didn't mind that Chris [Madden] set the pace at the start. We don't seem to fire like those guys at the start of a race, but we are there at the end. It was good to learn off of him [Madden] to know where we can get better. I used to play this track on a video game and now we are here in Victory Lane." Madden came up just short of his first-career win at Knoxville, crossing the line a close second. "We had a good car for the first half of the race, but I got extremely tight and I couldn't turn across the middle of the corners. I was just trying to bide my time and I was hoping not to get into traffic, that opened the door for Ricky. To have the night we had last night and to bounce back and have the night we had tonight is great. We can tune on it now and be ready for tomorrow night." Richards' stirring run was without the benefit of a single caution flag during the race. "We absolutely needed a caution. I feel like I was running those top two down. We had a fast car. I was relying on the cushion get up there. That was more of an old-school Knoxville with a ledge up there by the wall. It was slick all the way across the track and we could carry speed wherever we wanted to go. I had a lot of fun out there."

  3. Josh Richards Banks $30,000 in front of home state crowd at Hillbilly Hundred MIDDLEBOURNE, W.V. (September 1, 2019) - West Virginia native Josh Richards won his first career Hillbilly Hundred on Sunday night at the Tyler County Speedway. Heath Lawson photo The 31-year-old grew up coming to the track, and tonight, led all 100 laps to score the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory worth $30,000 in front of a capacity crowd. Richards' third Lucas Oil win of the season came over the defending Hillbilly Hundred winner Brandon Overton, Tim McCreadie, 20th starting Shanon Buckingham, and Jimmy Owens. Richards fought off the challenges of Owens for the first 80 laps of the race as they ran 1-2 for that entire distance until a caution flag with 20 laps to go changed the complexion in the race for second. On the restart Richards maintained his lead and McCreadie moved into second. At one-point McCreadie, Overton, and Buckingham raced three-wide around the tight bullring for the second position. A caution with seven laps to go set-up a quick dash to the finish. Richards again pulled away just enough to pick up the win while Overton passed McCreadie for second with two laps remaining. In front of a partisan West Virginia crowd, the homestate driver had accomplished one of his life-long dreams, by winning America's oldest dirt late model crown jewel event. "I don't know if I wanted to see that last caution. I wanted to get a couple of lap cars between myself and those other guys. You never know what you got. The right rear tire was getting a little warmer than I wanted. The car was phenomenal. The guys did a great job on the car." "I used to come here with my uncle Robbie Scott and watch everybody win this race, guys like Davey Johnson who drove for my dad won this race. I want to thank the crowd; they are great as always tonight and thanks to Carl Short for putting on this event." "We have had a good car all year long. We have had a lot of speed. We just don't have the finishes we deserve. It's pretty cool to finally win this race. I would have liked to have seen it go all 100 laps without caution. Once you're out there you are laser focused. I felt like I had some pretty good distance from the lapped cars. The track was smooth all night it was a fun race." Overton, who captured the 50th anniversary of the Hillbilly Hundred last year the event with a two-race win streak at Tyler County. "That was a good race. It's like being a day late and a dollar short. My hat is off to Josh and his crew for the win. They deserved it. Rocket Chassis ran first and second so that's good. We've had a good weekend to come with the win last year and second tonight we are very pleased with that. I felt like we had a winning car, we just ran out of laps." McCreadie topped off his weekend with his third podium finish in as many nights. "That's the way it goes when that last caution came out. Our car got too snug. I had to run so hard early on to get to the front. It was a racy little track tonight for sure. The track was drier than last year and that made it racier. I hope everybody had a great time watching that. It was great fun racing out there tonight."

  4. Davenport controls Bob Miller Memorial at Portsmouth with LOLMDS PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (August 31, 2019) - Jonathan Davenport went to Victory Lane for the twelfth time in 2019 on Saturday night at Portsmouth Raceway Park. Heath Lawson photo Davenport took the lead at the start of the 50-lap, Bob Miller Memorial, and held off a charging Josh Richards before pulling away for the victory. A torrid battle for second place ensued in the final circuits with several drivers taking a shot at Richards, but the two-time Dirt Track World Champion held them off and finished for the runner-up spot. Tim McCreadie advanced from his tenth starting spot to finish third. Polesitter Tyler Erb finished in fourth and Jimmy Owens rounded out the top five. Davenport and Erb bolted away from the pack at the drop of the initial green flag. Richards then caught up to Erb and passed him for second on lap seven. The third and final caution flew on lap 20 that bunched the field a final time. Davenport held the top spot easily on the restart and pulled out to a comfortable advantage, but Richards started to reel in the leader as the race wore on. Richards cut Davenport's lead to a car length, but Davenport gained the advantage back as he cleared heavy traffic in a timely manner and continued to pull away in the closing laps. Davenport the two-time and defending Lucas Oil National Champion was excited with his finish. "I am glad I didn't see the race behind me. I am out of breath. This was the best driving car I have ever had. We have been struggling here lately. Everybody knows I am not too good here. I didn't think I knew the directions to Victory Lane here. We are so bad here. We could run anywhere from fifth-tenth and maybe a third would be the best we could do. We changed a bunch of stuff tonight and it paid off." "I am tired of chasing these Rocket cars around here," Davenport added. "That Randall Edwards is so good at setting cars up, especially here with that number 1 car. He's won the big $100,000 to win race here three years in a row. Our car and all the Longhorns are really running well. I think if McCreadie would have won the heat he would have been tough to beat again tonight." Richards who has collected the last two $100,000 paychecks in the DTWC at Portsmouth, gave Davenport a run for his money. "We had a good race there with Tyler [Erb] and everybody else. Everyone raced each other clean. I love coming to this track. I didn't realize it but at one point I about ripped my spoiler off. We were too free at the end there to take a shot at him [Davenport]. I knew we were holding on at the end and if they got by me, they got by me, but fortunately we held them off." McCreadie charged to third at the end and was challenging Richards for the runner-up spot when the race ended. "The track finally slowed down enough for us to keep up. We are just happy for all of our sponsors. I made a mistake in the heat and it cost us, but we kept on swinging and came home with another podium finish."

  5. McCreadie breaks through at Ponderosa for LOLMDS win JUNCTION CITY, Ky. (August 30, 2019) - Tim McCreadie picked up his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory of 2019 on Friday night at Ponderosa Speedway. Heath Lawson photo A record-setting crowd for the 15th annual John Bradshaw Memorial saw McCreadie become the fifteenth different winner on the tour this season. McCreadie held off a mid-race charge from Tanner English to take his first-ever win at the d-shaped oval. English's family owned Rocket Chassis finished in second, followed by current series point leader Jonathan Davenport, Don O'Neal, and Tyler Erb. Billy Moyer Jr. and McCreadie made up the front row of the starting grid for the 50-lap main event. McCreadie charged to the lead at the drop of the green flag. Moyer Jr. held the second-spot until Kyle Strickler moved by him on lap ten. Strickler then pressured McCreadie for the race lead by closing on his bumper several times as the two entered heavy traffic. The first caution of the race came on lap thirteen, just as the race for the lead was heating up. When the race resumed, McCreadie and English took the second spot after Strickler got stuck against the wall coming off of turn number two. At the halfway mark, McCreadie still showed the way with English in second and fifteenth starting Don O'Neal in his first race since mid-June. O'Neal and Davenport went back-and-forth in the race for third and fourth for several laps. Davenport was finally able to clear O'Neal with four laps to go to earn a podium finish. Meanwhile, McCreadie pulled away from English in the waning laps to deny the Kentucky racer his first career Lucas Oil victory. The New York native did his customary victory lane celebration to a cheering crowd. "It was very aggressive out there tonight. It was more demanding than I wanted it to be. Thanks to Longhorn Chassis, Kevin Rumley, Justin Labonte, Philip Snellen, and everybody else with the team. This car has won a lot of money this year. We keep parking it, so maybe we shouldn't leave it in the stable anymore. It's about time we finally won one of the Lucas Oil races." "It's pretty cool to race here," McCreadie added. "The crowd is right on you here with this d-shaped oval. We don't normally run tracks like this. You can see when someone is coming behind you because the grandstand comes to its feet. So, I want to thank all the fans for helping me in lapped traffic. We have been working really hard on the shocks the last few weeks. This whole deal is tough, and we are just glad to be back in Victory Lane." English, who has been a frequent visitor at Ponderosa Speedway, was pleased with his runner-up finish. "I thought we might have had him [McCreadie] in lap traffic. I also thought I was the only one to make a softer tire work, but I was fading at the end and he [McCreadie] got away from me. I will take second against these guys any night." Davenport, who started eighth, charged to a third-place finish. "We have been working on this Longhorn program a lot. McCreadie has been catching up and doing really good. Kevin [Rumley] has been working with him and hopefully we can get him up to second in the points. I took my time at the start and was trying to save my tires until the end."

  6. Sheppard Rules Mansfield's Dirt Million MANSFIELD, Ohio (August 24, 2019) - Brandon Sheppard took the race lead from Jonathan Davenport on lap 30 and led the rest of the way to win the 2nd annual Dirt Million - Presented by Arizona Sport Shirts on Saturday night at Mansfield Motor Speedway. Brandon Sheppard and Crew Celebrate in Victory Lane Heath Lawson photo Sheppard held off both Mike Marlar and Chase Junghans at the finish line. It was Sheppard's third Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the year and his 22nd triumph in 2019. Sheppard and his car owner, Mark Richards took home $101,626.20 for his second six-figure victory of the season. He withstood a caution with two laps to go and another on the final lap while fighting off challenges from Marlar and Junghans. Marlar earned a career-high $50,813.10 payday for finishing second. Junghans also topped his best previous earnings for a race by collecting over $33,000 for third. Jimmy Owens and Ricky Weiss completed the top five finishers. Davenport took the lead at the start of the race with Sheppard and Scott Bloomquist running in the top three. Junghans slipped by Bloomquist on lap three and joined in the fray. That trio ran nose-to-tail up to lap 14 as traffic started to become a factor. With the back-to-back cautions on lap 16 and 17, Davenport was unable to pull away from the field. On the lap 18 restart, Junghans moved into second, dropping Sheppard to third. Junghans stayed with Davenport in the race for the lead. On lap 30, Sheppard passed both Davenport and the second place running Junghans to take over the lead of the race. Sheppard went to Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the 14th time in his career. "This is just amazing! My guys worked so hard on this thing. I put a lot of pressure on myself. I know this car can go to Victory Lane every night as long as I do my part. It was a phenomenal night. I knew I didn't want to lead early on in that race. I didn't want to run the top all night, so once I got to the lead, I got back on the bottom. It was a fun race. Thanks to Mark Richards and Steve Baker for giving me this opportunity." Marlar tried a couple of times on the topside to pass Sheppard, but ultimately settled on a second-plcae finish. "The whole race, I was just trying to make sure I had enough tires at the end. I was hoping when Brandon got to the traffic that he would get behind one of the cars in the back long enough to hold him up. Brandon is an awesome driver; he doesn't make many mistakes. He is always fast, and you have to be faster to beat him. My car owner Ronnie Delk is a go for it type of guy and he trusts me with whatever decision I make out there and I think he would have had faith in me to make the best choice." Junghans, who entered Saturday with two consecutive runner-up finishes, was looking for his first career Lucas Oil victory. "If I could have gotten around JD [Davenport] earlier or if I had started on the pole it might have been different. The car has been good all weekend I just need to thank my crew for giving me a great car. I am kind of disappointed that we ran third, I felt like we should have won. It's pretty cool to earn that kind of money for third. I am here to race. I wish I was standing in Victory Lane with the trophy and big check but we will try again next time."

  7. Sheppard and Marlar Win Night Two Duels at Mansfield MANSFIELD, Ohio (August 23, 2019) - Brandon Sheppard and Mike Marlar won Duel feature events on Friday night of the 2nd annual Dirt Million - Presented by Arizona Sport Shirts at Mansfield Motor Speedway. Brandon Sheppard Wins Duel #1 at Mansfield Heath Lawson photo Each driver earned $10,000 for their 30-lap victories and are guaranteed a starting spot in Saturday night's Dirt Million finale. Sheppard took the lead on lap two from pole-sitter Kent Robinson and led the rest of the way to win the first Duel. It was not an easy win for the 26-year-old Illinois racer, as he had to hold off both a charging Jimmy Owens and the defending Dirt Million winner, Earl Pearson Jr. Brandon Overton was fourth, with Hudson O'Neal coming from the fifteenth starting spot to register a fifth-place finish at the checkers. "It was really hard staying out front," said Sheppard. "They have got the track really good right now. You had to have a line where the car would go best. With traffic in front of us, we really didn't know where to go. My crew guys are awesome, they kept me up to date on where I needed to be on the track. It was tricky out there. I felt good around the top of three and four and in one and two I felt good all over." "This car is just phenomenal right now. They have it really tuned in. We had a car that was capable of winning last night. It was just a little harder to pass last night," said the winner, who recorded his 13th career Lucas Oil win and his first since winning the Indiana Icebreaker at Brownstown (IN) Speedway in March. Owens was in the hunt for the win from the halfway mark and came home in second after passing Pearson on lap 21. "It is hands down better than we ran here last night. It felt good to be battling for the win. Brandon [Sheppard], he is one of the toughest guys in the country right now, and to have him moving around and looking over his shoulder the whole race was pretty awesome." Pearson; who collected over $202,000 for his win in the Dirt Million a year ago; returned to the Lucas Oil podium with his third-place finish: "It wasn't too bad tonight. We got up on the cushion and did our thing, which is unusual for me to go to the cushion. We weren't bad up on the cushion either. When Brandon moved up there, we couldn't do much after that."

Mike Marlar Wins Duel #2 at Mansfield Heath Lawson photo Marlar claimed his fourth Lucas Oil win of the season, leading all 30-laps for a convincing victory. Chase Junghans; for the second night in a row; recorded a second-place finish. Michael Norris, in the Clint Bowyer Racing #5 entry, posted his best career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series finish rounding out the podium. Jonathan Davenport finished fourth with Tyler Erb crossing the finish line in fifth. Marlar who also started on the pole of a Thursday night duel was not going to be denied tonight as he stormed to the lead early on over Norris and Junghans. Norris, who like Junghans, was seeking his first career Lucas Oil win, closed on Marlar in heavy traffic with twelve laps scored. Junghans made the pass on Norris for second on lap 20. Marlar held steady in lapped traffic as Junghans and Norris could not get close enough in the waning laps to challenge for the win. Like Sheppard, the win also marked Marlar's thirteenth career win with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. Marlar led every lap for his win. "Last night was a bummer when you get a good starting spot like that. It's tough when you win a heat and get to start up front like we did. The car was something I could deal with today better than last night. It was definitely 'elbows up' early. Last year we had a real good shot for the win and a carburetor spring broke I think I was running second when it broke and I had to start lifting on the gas pedal." Junghans was pleased with another runner-up finish. "The third times the charm, right? Mikey is hard to beat. I wish the track would have gotten a little wider for us. We still have a little bit of tuning on the car to do yet. But it's really good right now. We just need to build off of last night and tonight." Norris was thrilled with his podium finish. "Just to run with these guys is pretty awesome. The car was really good there. I thought we might actually have a shot at Mikey. The car got a little snug at the end there and that kind of played a factor. Congrats to him. We are glad to have two solid nights here."

  8. Bloomquist and Davenport Star at Mansfield MANSFIELD, Ohio (August 22, 2019) - Scott Bloomquist and Jonathan Davenport claimed feature victories during Thursday night's preliminary program for the 2nd annual Dirt Million - Presented by Arizona Sport Shirts. Scott Bloomquist Wins Duel #1 at Mansfield Heath Lawson Photo Bloomquist, a three-time Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion won the first 30-lap Duel of the night in the new format instituted for this year's race. Davenport, the two-time and defending series champion held off a trio of drivers in a furious finish in the second 30-lap Duel. Both feature races went caution-free. Bloomquist took the lead at the start of the first feature and sprinted away to easily pick up the win. The win marks his all-time leading 95th Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series career win. Both Josh Richards and Brandon Sheppard tried to track down Bloomquist, but the boss of Team Zero went to Victory Lane for the first-time at Mansfield. With the win, Bloomquist cemented himself into Saturday's 100-lap Dirt Million main event. Richards held off Sheppard to earn the runner-up spot with Michael Norris and Darrell Lanigan rounding out the top five. Bloomquist was elated in Lucas Oil Victory Lane: "The car has felt great after we found out what was wrong with it. We put in on a jig last week and it was pretty far off. We had a pretty good car last week at Batesville. I hope it feels as good here Saturday night. We hot lapped fast tonight, we qualified a little off, and we changed a few things that we didn't like. I want to dedicate this race to Chris [Madden]. I hate it that he got hurt earlier in the week. He should be back in a few weeks." "He [Bloomquist] was in a league of his own," said the runner-up Richards. "There was one time we got caught up in lapped traffic that we were gaining on him just a little bit and that was only because of the lapped cars. We needed to be better. Me and Sheppard had a good race for second. We need to be a little better tomorrow night. This place has always been good to me."

Jonathan Davenport Wins Duel #2 at Mansfield Heath Lawson Photo The second duel feature saw Davenport take the lead from Mike Marlar on lap five and hold off a trio of drivers before he could go to Victory Lane for the eleventh time this season with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. Davenport got caught up in lapped traffic and that allowed Chase Junghans, Bobby Pierce, and Ricky Weiss all to close on him in the final ten laps of the race. Junghans passed Weiss for second with four laps to go as Pierce followed topside two laps from the finish. As the four drivers came off of turn four Davenport had traffic on front of him, but he held off a furious charge from the other three competitors for the win. "I was hoping to see the checkered flag sooner. I was looking around and I couldn't really tell if anybody was underneath me. I was trying the bottom and the top. They were two-wide in front of me. I couldn't make the middle work like I could the bottom and the top. I saw Stormy [Scott] down there on the bottom and he was pretty good, so I just tried to stay focused on what I was doing." Junghans came close to scoring his first career Lucas Oil victory with his runner-up finish after starting in sixth. "The only way we were going to win was if JD missed his marks. It was a hornet's nest down there with those lapped cars. I felt good around the bottom in three and four. The track was great once it cleaned off. Hopefully we will get one spot better tomorrow night."

  9. Madden Stays Hot with Topless 100 Triumph LOCUST GROVE, Ark. (August 17, 2019) - Chris Madden is undoubtedly the hottest driver in dirt late model racing after winning his third consecutive crown jewel event in as many weeks on Saturday night. The 44-year-old South Carolina native stormed to his first career COMP Cams Topless 100 - Presented by Nutrien Ag Solutions at Batesville Motor Speedway. Madden earned $40,000 for his effort and became the fifteenth different driver to win the annual crown jewel event sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series. Madden led the first 33 laps of the race until his Team Zero teammate Scott Bloomquist took over the top spot. Bloomquist, who was seeking his sixth career victory in the August race, led until Madden regained the point on lap 76. From there, Madden held off both Brandon Overton and Bloomquist for the win. Josh Richards finished in fourth, followed by a hard-charging Shannon Babb who took fifth after starting in sixteenth. Madden and Bloomquist went back-and-forth for the lead several times early in the race after starting on the front row together. Overton would later make his presence known in the fight for the top spot. Overton, who started tenth on the grid, charged to second just two laps shy of the halfway mark. At halfway, it was Bloomquist, Overton and Madden running in tight quarters. Bloomquist slipped in turn four on lap 76 and allowed Madden to take over the lead for good. Overton never gave up, challenging Madden for the remainder of the race but ultimately settling for a runner-up finish. The Topless 100 marked Madden's thirteenth-career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory. "We got to heavy traffic with 15 laps to go. I tried to back up off of the traffic. I got by a couple of guys I thought I could and there were ones I didn't think I could get around so easily. I got off of that bottom there one lap and I could see Brandon was there, so I quickly got back down there." "I got back on the bottom just in time," Madden added. "I tried not to get loose going into the corner and I wanted to set a pace to finish it off. I had no intention of pitting for tires. I took it easy for a long time. Brandon just slipped up enough to give us the advantage. What an awesome race car I have here with Cody Sommer and Scott. I just see big things happening with this team." Overton, in the Rum Runner Racing entry, earned $20,000 for his second-place finish. "Chris showed me the top down there and I got beside Scott. Then I slipped a little and Chris got around both of us. Hats off to those guys they have been running really well. Stuff is falling their way. That was a heck of a race out there. Thanks to Joey Coulter for giving me the chance to drive his car. Thanks to my crew chief Harold Holly, and all of my crew as well." Bloomquist who was looking to make it back-to-back wins took the third finishing position and took home $10,000 for his efforts. "We were running the bottom and that was the place to be. We had dropped back to fourth and then we got back by Richards there. If you were outside you were hung out to dry. I felt pretty good tonight. I was a little sore at the end. I had a tough time getting out of the car. We are getting stronger race-by-race."

  10. LOCUST GROVE, Ark. (August 15, 2019) - Chris Madden continued his recent hot streak by winning Thursday night's opener at Batesville Motor Speedway. The win marks his third consecutive trip to Victory Lane in Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series competition. Madden survived a battle with Brandon Overton to score the victory on night one of the COMP Cams Topless 100 - Presented by Nutrien Ag Solutions. Madden was unchallenged other than when he slid up the track after a lap 19 restart and Overton forged ahead on lap 21. Overton slid up the track a lap later which allowed Madden to get back by him and go on for the victory, his 11th career Lucas Oil Late Model Late Model Dirt Series win. Madden; the 44-year-old South Carolina native; started alongside polesitter Mike Marlar on the front row for the 30-lap main event. Madden bolted to the lead at the drop of the green with Marlar going to the second position. Those two were joined by Overton and Davenport in lapped traffic as a four-car battle for the race lead was developing until a caution for fifth-place running Tyler Erb slowed the field. After losing the lead for just one lap, Madden managed to regain his momentum and powered his way to the victory. Overton crossed the finish line in second with Madden's teammate, Scott Bloomquist finishing in third. Jimmy Owens and Jonathan Davenport completed the top five. "We were bottoming out getting into one. We shoved the nose across the center, and we got hung up in the fluff," said the winner talking about how Overton had gotten by him for the race lead. "It opened the door for Brandon. We gathered it back together and made a good corner in 3 and 4. Right now going through the race I am wondering what we are hurting in this race and what we need to maintenance the car for tomorrow night's race. We don't want something to bite us that we overlooked tonight for Saturday's big race." "If the track stays like this for tomorrow night we definitely learned a lot. I think Mooney will work on it and get it ready for the rest of the weekend. It will be back to the old Batesville." Overton, who was seeking his fifth career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory was in the hunt the entire race. "As soon as he [Madden] pushed up the race track we were able to get by him. Then I went down there and did the same thing. I just got a little choppy and if you let it roll in there it would sit down for a little bit. Chris has the best car in the country right now so congratulations to him." Bloomquist ended up on the podium after starting in fifth. "Definitely this car is on track now. We can race now. I felt like we were holding our own out there. We might have to tweak it little bit more. We have got a different car under me now. It is great to see Chris winning. It's great to know our cars are good right now. We just have to keep working hard and we will be fine."

  11. Jimmy Owens on Sunoco North/South 100 Pole UNION, Ky. (August 9, 2019) - Friday night's portion of the Sunoco Race Fuels North/South - Presented by Lucas Oil kicked off with 53 of the nation's top dirt late model drivers battling in twelve heat races of passing points. In the first round, heat one was won by Mike Marlar. He led all the way to pick up the victory. Marlar stayed in front of a fantastic battle for second that lasted for the entire distance. Ultimately, he was followed to the line by Michael Norris and Ricky Weiss. In the second heat, Zak Blackwood led all the way to win. Dale McDowell charged from the fourth starting position to take the runner-up spot. Scott Bloomquist took the third spot. In heat three, Frank Heckenast Jr. passed Billy Moyer Jr. on the white flag lap to win an exciting battle between the two. Moyer Jr. would cross the line in second over seventh-starting Stormy Scott. Hudson O'Neal made a daring move early in heat four as the 18-year-old went on to win the heat after starting in eighth, collecting the most passing points in round one with his winning effort. Duane Chamberlain would finish in second followed by Florence first-timer Chris Garnes. The fifth heat race saw a torrid battle between the top three finishers. Jimmy Owens, Jonathan Davenport and Bobby Pierce ran away from the rest of the field over the last half of the race. Jonathan Davenport, who started seventh and Bobby Pierce, who started eighth rocketed through the field to finish second and third. The sixth and final heat race of round one saw Kyle Bronson use his outside front-row starting spot to take the win as a hotly contested battle for second took place, with Nick Hoffman finally edging Brandon Overton for the second spot. In the second round, heat one turned out to have a battle of number 8 cars as Mike Benedum took the lead at the start and stretched it out from the other number 8, Kyle Stickler.

  12. Madden Scores first Florence victory in North/South Shootout UNION, Ky. (August 8, 2019) - Chris Madden found his way to Victory Lane on Thursday night in the Sunoco North/South Shootout at Florence Speedway. Chris Madden celebrates with his son Avery in Victory Lane (HeathLawsonPhotos.com) The win marks the South Carolina native's first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season and his first ever at Florence Speedway. Madden becomes the thirteenth different winner on the Series in 2019. Madden started on the pole and faded as far back as fifth in the running order early in the race. Zack Dohm led the first fifteen laps of the 50-lap race before Owens charged to the lead on lap sixteen. Owens went on to hold a comfortable lead until contact with a lapped car sent him spinning out of the lead with 43 laps scored. Madden inherited the top spot on the restart and pulled away from Tim McCreadie in the closing laps to pick up the win. The defending North-South Shootout winner, Tim McCreadie, was second with Dohm registering his best career LOLMDS finish, in third place. Stormy Scott claimed the fourth spot ahead of Kent Robinson who rounded out the top five drivers. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane, Madden was worried at the start of the race. "I went too far on my adjustments for sure. The first 20 laps, I wasn't as comfortable as I should have been and then searched and found a line that was working. We just hustled the car and got back up there in the thick of things. I got back into second and then Jimmy had a lead on us. I hated to see that happen to him but am thankful for the win." "We have been really good in this car," Madden added. "We now have two wins and a second-place finish. There are a lot of crown jewel races coming up. We got one last week at Cedar Lake and we hope to get one here on Saturday Night." "The track was really good tonight. There's definitely going to be some awesome racing here the next two nights. I want to thank Cody Sommer and Scott [Bloomquist] for giving me this opportunity. Thanks to all of the fans for coming out and supporting us tonight," said the 44-year-old Madden. McCreadie came home in second. "This surface and the tire rule just suit me really well here. You just can't run it through the middle, you just have to maneuver it. Jimmy was doing that; he was running half-way through the middle and then on the bottom. Chris was just a little bit better there at the end. We tried to run that top, but we just couldn't make up much time on him." Dohm, whose father Tim owns one-career LOLMDS win, was looking for his first-ever series triumph. "We seem like we always run good here, but we never have started up front like we did tonight. I was a little shocked when I drove by Chris there at the start and I thought we were setting a pretty pace. I could feel the right rear tire getting hot and it was shoving the car across the track. Coming out of here with a third is awesome. It was just myself and my brother Nick, so we feel pretty good to run like we did against this caliber of competition."

  13. Davenport Claims I-80 Speedway's Go 50 GREENWOOD, Nebr. (July 18, 2019) - For the second consecutive year, Jonathan Davenport claimed a thrilling victory in the Malvern Bank Go 50 at I-80 Speedway. Heath Lawson photo The race saw five different drivers grab the lead at one point. Davenport became the last of the five, as he took the point on lap 34 from Brandon Sheppard and cruised on to his tenth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season. Davenport and Sheppard were followed to the finish line by Devin Moran, Mason Zeigler, and Shannon Babb. Tyler Bruening led the first lap until Tyler Erb took over the top spot just one lap later. Erb held his lead until Zeigler; last year's Lucas Oil Rookie-of-the-Year; grabbed the lead away from him. Zeigler held on to the point until Sheppard went by him on lap 21. Sheppard and Davenport ran one-two using the top groove for several circuits, until Davenport caught Sheppard on lap 34 to gain the lead and held it to the finish line. Davenport was able to pull away on the final lap to pick up the victory and extend his series points lead over Josh Richards and Tyler Erb. "It was a little shaky at the end," Davenport commented. "But once we got passed traffic, we were good to go. I knew he [Sheppard] would probably be on the top. We had a little problem with the car after the heat, but Jason and the crew got it fixed. We took off pretty good and then started to pick up the pace around the halfway mark when we got in to second. Brandon and I rode that top groove for a long time until I was finally able to catch him and pass him. I am sure that was a heck of a race to watch." Davenport added: "This is a new car we rolled out tonight. This was our Eldora car. We will come back here the next two days and see if we can get it done again. Thanks to Steve Martin of Nutrien Ag Solutions for all he does for our race team." Sheppard; who has one LOLMDS win this season; led 13 laps and came home in second place. "We had a real good car. I want to thank Mark Richards, Steve Baker and my whole crew. We were right there at the end. I thought maybe with two to go we had another shot at him. That one caution hurt us because we had a run up top on the restart and I think we might have cleared him [Davenport], but we will come back tomorrow night and hope for a good racetrack like they gave us tonight." Moran, who earned the Optima Batteries Hard Charger of the Race, came home with a third-place finish. "We finally got it rolling after a while. Tyler [Erb] and I had a great race for a long time, we were throwing sliders on each other. I think we touched maybe once but it was good hard racing. I didn't need those last cautions because we were moving good on the bottom through the middle. Congrats to JD and Sheppy. This is our first-time here and it has quickly become one of my favorite tracks to race on."

  14. Richards Charges to Brown County Victory ABERDEEN, S.D. (July 16, 2019) - Josh Richards stormed to the victory in the 3rd annual Bullet Sportswear Shootout on Tuesday night at Brown County Speedway. Richards started fifth and powered to the lead ahead of Brandon Sheppard on lap 35 en-route to claim his second Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season. Tim McCreadie climbed from his eleventh starting position to finish second as he passed Stormy Scott for the runner-up position in the final laps. Scott recorded his best career LOLMDS finish by taking third at the checkers. Sheppard held on to finish fourth and took Jonathan Davenport took fifth. Sheppard was in control of the race in the early going, but Richards quickly made his way from the inside of row number three to wrestle the second spot from Scott. Sheppard and Richards then duked it out for the lead with Richards passing Sheppard through the middle of the racetrack with fifteen laps remaining. Richards had to withstand one last caution flag with eleven laps remaining, but once the race resumed Richards went on uncontested for the 27th time in his LOLMDS career, which is fifth all-time in series history. "It feels good to get back to Lucas Oil Victory Lane," said the 31-year-old West Virginia native. We have had a fast car for most of the year, just a lot of bad luck has hit us. We had two runner-up finishes at Portsmouth and Tyler County. We haven't run here that much in the past. I got the lead from Brandon [Sheppard] by rolling through the middle." Runner-up Tim McCreadie, commented: "We had that incident in the heat race which set us back. We qualified well and then we had to go to the tail. The car was real maneuverable tonight. From where we started, we are pleased. Congrats to Josh, he was strong there especially at the end of the race." Scott continues to show improvement in his maiden season with the series. "We have had a real good car the last few weeks. My crew continues to work and work on this thing and they have got it the best it's been all year. This has been a tough year, but a learning one. A lot of these tracks I have never run on before. We have been here once before in a modified. If we can keep the good finishes going hopefully, we can knock out a win before the year ends."

  15. Jimmy Owens Rules Diamond Nationals Opener WHEATLAND, Mo. (July 13, 2019) - Jimmy Owens continues his mastery of Lucas Oil Speedway by capturing the first night of the CMH Diamond Nationals - Presented by Super Clean on Saturday night. Heath Lawson photo In a race that saw three different leaders, Owens fought off several challenges from Earl Pearson Jr. to secure his second straight Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory and his fourth-career Diamond Nationals. Saturday night's $15,000-to-win event marked Owens' 63rd LOLMDS win. Scott Bloomquist; the defending CMH Diamond Nationals winner; started from the pole and led the first 10 laps until Owens charged to the lead after starting fifth. Pearson moved by Bloomquist on lap 20 using the top groove and within just a few laps caught the front-running Owens. Owens and Pearson then dueled side-by-side for several laps as the two went back-and-forth for the top spot. Owens eventually pulled away from Pearson in heavy lapped traffic and he went on the record his ninth career win at Lucas Oil Speedway. For the second night in a row, Pearson ran second to Owens. Mike Marlar edged out Bloomquist in the waning laps to secure the third spot. Bloomquist was fourth, with current LOLMDS point leader Jonathan Davenport coming home in fifth after starting in 13th. "We are rolling right now," Owens said. "This is a big win for us! My car owner Leon Ramirez is here. My crew has worked their tails off in the last week. I didn't want to see any cautions. We are still struggling on restarts. It'll be awesome to get to back here tomorrow night and race. The crew is pumped up. It's a great feeling to get back to victory lane at Lucas Oil Speedway." "We couldn't get off the corner," commented Pearson. "Everybody knows that Jimmy is so good here. He has won countless times here before. We tried to run with him for 12 to 15 laps. He could move around a lot better than us. We finished second to Jimmy last night and again here tonight. We'll come back tomorrow night and give it another shot." Marlar continued his streak of solid finishes with the LOLMDS by coming home in third. "We changed some stuff on the car before the feature. It was a fun track to race on tonight. We went with something out of the ordinary and it worked. Congrats to Jimmy on the win, he deserves this win. It was good to race against Scott [Bloomquist] again, and it's good to see him back. He and I battled the whole race."

  16. Owens Holds Off Richards at Tri-City GRANITE CITY, Ill. (July 12, 2019) - Jimmy Owens fought off challenges from both Shannon Babb and Josh Richards to win the NAPA Know How 50 - Presented by Schoenfeld Headers on Friday night at Tri-City Speedway. Owens earned his first-ever win at the Kevin and Tammy Gundaker-promoted facility. It was Owens' second Lucas Oil win of the season and the 62nd of his career for the 3-time national champion. Owens held the point for the first 11 laps of the race until Babb forged ahead for a lap. Owens and Babb went back-and-forth until just past the half-way mark of the race. Babb held the second spot until he suddenly slowed on the 32nd lap and retired from the race. Richards picked up the challenge for the lead as he pulled even with Owens on several occasions, but never managed to take the top spot. Earl Pearson Jr. charged by Richards to take the runner-up position on the final lap. Pearson and Richards joined Owens on the podium as Stormy Scott recorded his best career series finish by taking fourth ahead of 23rd starting Devin Moran, rounding out the top five. "I want to thank all of my crew, my car owner Leon Ramirez and his family for giving me this opportunity to drive their car. Thanks to the fans for coming I hope they enjoyed the show. This will give us a lot of momentum heading to Wheatland tomorrow night. We have been leading a lot this year and things have happened. We had a good car last night. We made a few tweaks for tonight and everything went our way." Pearson topped off a spirited run with his last lap pass of Richards. "I got too tight around the bottom, so I went to the top. I could run right through the middle and the car wasn't so tight. To come home second after starting 15th,we worked hard to get there. I really love this track; it's been good to us in the past. It races so good." Richards, who came into the weekend with back-to-back second place finishes was pleased with his third-place run. "Last night we got into the tire barrier and it cost us a good finish. I felt like tonight I should have moved up sooner. Jimmy had a good car. I felt like I could have got him, but he was just better tonight."

  17. Tyler Erb Does it Again at Tri-City GRANITE CITY, Ill. (July 11, 2019) - Tyler Erb emerged victorious after battling Jimmy Owens and Mike Marlar to win his fifth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event of the season on Thursday night at Tri-City Speedway. The Hoker Trucking Best in the Business 50 - Presented by Schoenfeld Headers was also Erb's second consecutive Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory. Tim McCreadie came on strong to finish third just ahead of Owens and Earl Pearson Jr. Erb started the day by setting fast time, then went on to earn the PFC Brakes Pole Award for the main event. Owens grabbed the early lead and held the point for the first 22 laps of the race. The next six laps saw a back-and-forth race for the lead between Owens and Erb. Erb took the lead for the first time on lap 23, but Owens fought back to regain the top spot. The two raced side-by-side with Erb regaining the lead on the 30th circuit. Marlar took over the second spot on lap 39 after he and Owens had battled side-by-side for several circuits. A caution came out with five laps to go, which gave Marlar one more opportunity to sneak by Erb. On the restart Erb used the clean air in front of him to open up a slight lead, and went on to cross 3/4 of a second ahead of Marlar at the finish line for his sixth career LOLMDS victory. "I really didn't want to see that last caution because I had gotten into a rhythm," said Erb. "I was kind of kicking myself when Jimmy got back by me for the lead. I knew when Mikey was behind me that things were going to be tough. I could hear Jimmy under me and then the same thing with Mikey. I just kind of let it go for broke in the last four laps. About a month ago I was in the same position and I wasn't going to let what happened last time, happen again." With the win, the 22-year-old Texan not only keeps his points lead in the Rookie-of-the-Year chase but also cut into point leader Jonathan Davenport's championship point lead. Davenport finished 18th after pulling off the track due to heavy damage to his racecar. "That was a pretty exciting race! Thank you to Jimmy and Mikey for racing me clean. We are really looking forward to racing again here tomorrow night. I really like this place. They do a great job preparing it. You can really move around all over it." For Marlar, the runner-up finish continued his strong run of podium finishes since the first of June in the LOLMDS. "This was an awesome race-track tonight, we could run anywhere on it. I ran the top, but I felt the car working better on the bottom. I have always enjoyed coming here, but I have never had much success here. Glad to come here tonight and get the monkey off of our back." McCreadie stayed in the top five and grabbed the third spot at the finish. "This was a good run. It's Phillip's [Crew Chief Phillip Snellen] birthday today. We are still working on a lot of things and we are getting closer. We started with a new shock company for the team and they had been out of racing for a long time, but we keep making strides and hopefully we can get a win soon."

  18. Mike Marlar conquers Independence 50 atPortsmouth with LOLMDS PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (July 4, 2019) - Mike Marlar ran away with the Independence 50 on Thursday night at Portsmouth Raceway Park - earning his third Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season. Heath Lawson photo At the drop of the green flag, Marlar sprinted to a comfortable lead and held the point for the entire race. Marlar had to withstand a 5-lap shootout to the finish with second-place running Josh Richards and Jimmy Owens after a lap-45 caution. Richards moved into the second spot on lap four and tried to stay within striking distance of Marlar, but at stages during the race Marlar held a more than a straightaway advantage over Richards. Owens, who started sixth moved into third past Hudson O'Neal on lap 33 as he tried to track down Richards inside the last ten laps of the race before settling for the third spot. O'Neal and Jonathan Davenport completed the top five. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane for twelfth time in his career, Marlar commented that his third heat race win over his good friend Owens is what set the stage to get the victory tonight. "I want to thank Jimmy for running me clean in that heat race. We went back-and-forth for most of the race. It was probably one of the best heat races you will ever see. Jimmy could be standing here right now if he would've won that race. He had a really good race car tonight as well." "These Rocket XR1 chassis are stout. This track has been kind of tough on us for a while now, but it feels good to win in front of this crowd. The track crew did a great job with the track today. It was fast all over, it was probably the best I have seen this place. This car could go anywhere I drove it on the track. Thanks to the entire crew for their help. My wife Stacy is from Ohio and a lot of her family is here this weekend." Owens was elated with the win. "We have been coming here a long time and I would say it's the best I have seen this place. I had a good race with Hudson and then I thought I could catch Josh then that caution with five to go came out. I am not sure if it helped me or not. But we hung in there and got another good finish." Richards continued his string of strong finishes at Portsmouth. "This place has been really good to me over the past two years. The track was in really good shape tonight. We had the car set-up for the top and it really paid off. Congratulations to Mikey on the win, he was just too good tonight for anybody. We have been running really well and I hope the momentum carries over to Tyler County tomorrow. It is one of my top five favorite tracks. I will have a lot of friend and family there."

  19. Davenport Goes Flag to Flag at Florence UNION, Ky. (June 29, 2019) - Jonathan Davenport posted a flag-to-flag victory in Saturday night's 33rd annual Ralph Latham Memorial at Florence Speedway. Heath Lawson photo Davenport held off a furious late-race challenge from Jimmy Owens for a $12,000 payday. Davenport's triumph marked his eighth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season. Davenport and Owens ran first and second the entire 50 laps, battling nose-to-tail in the early stages of the race. Hudson O'Neal; the defending race winner; and Josh Richards exchanged the third spot on several occasions in the final laps before O'Neal edged out Richards. Mike Marlar rounded of the top five finishers in a race that went the entire distance without a caution flag. Davenport earned his second-career Ralph Latham Memorial win and was very pleased in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. "I had a good spot to watch the race last night at Tazewell. I think we had a car that could've won last night. We started in the back and I went too hard too early. I thought the rain was right on us. I wasn't going to give this one away. After they watered the track tonight, I had no idea where to go. I knew Jimmy [Owens] was under me and I wanted to give him some room." "I didn't want to ruin our night right off the bat," said the two-time and defending National Champion. "I have to thank Josh [King] for giving us a good track to race on. I tore this thing up last night and thanks to my crew guys for putting it back together. We are happy to be back in Victory Lane. I wasn't making up any time on the lapped cars. I was just spinning my tires there for a while. I was trying to save them until the end. I was trying to keep Jimmy at bay." Owens was coming off of a fifth-place finish at Tazewell and hounded Davenport for the entire race. "I didn't expect it to go caution free. We have a lot of professional drivers out here and everybody did a great job. I was needing some oxygen there about half-way through. I was pounding on that cushion and that just wasn't for me. It was a rough night at Tazewell last night. The crew busted their tails to get this thing ready for tonight." O'Neal charged from eleventh to pick up the third spot. "I wasn't hoping for a caution I was praying for one. We needed one there. We got behind early tonight. We were pretty good in the heat race. We drove up through there in the feature and I can't complain a bit, we have had a really good weekend. I know we have wins but we have been missing that consistency. This is a race track we have been waiting all year to come to. I can't wait to come back here in August."

  20. Buckingham scores first career Lucas Oil Late Model victory TAZEWELL, Tenn. (June 28, 2019) - Shanon Buckingham took over the lead on a lap 44 caution, after Tyler Erb and Dale McDowell both suffered flat tires, and went on to claim his first-career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory. Heath Lawson photo For the 46-year-old Tennessee native, the Toyota Knoxville/Secret City Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram/Ted Russell Ford 50 on Friday night at Tazewell Speedway marked the biggest win of his Super Late Model career. Buckingham held off first-time Tazewell visitor, Jared Hawkins for the victory to become the eleventh different winner this season on the tour. Earl Pearson Jr. finished in third place, with Hudson O'Neal and Jimmy Owens completing the top five. Josh Richards and Jimmy Owens led the field to the start of the race before a huge crowd of fans. Richards took the lead on lap one ahead of Owens before the first caution of the race flew on lap eight for Moyer Jr., who had a flat tire. Jonathan Davenport subsequently suffered a drive-line failure, putting him out of the race. The field was slowed again on lap ten for Owens, who suffered a flat tire along the frontstretch while running in second. When the race resumed, Richards continued to show the way until Erb took the lead. Richards then slowed on lap 42 with a flat tire while running in second. Buckingham was emotional in Lucas Oil Victory after winning in front of his homestate. "We have worked so hard for this," said Buckingham pausing for several seconds to recollect his thoughts. "When we set out to do the Lucas Oil Series this year, we had a goal of winning some races. To do it here at Tazewell, in front of all of these people is just fantastic. I want to say thank you to everybody who got us to victory lane tonight." "I want to thank my wife Amanda, my car owner Roger Sellers, my mom and dad, and especially J.C. Crockett, my crew chief. I don't think we had the best car tonight. Tyler Erb had the best car. Sometimes things like flat tires are a part of racing and we took advantage of what happened to Tyler and Dale [McDowell]. We kept the car up front for the entire race and everything just fell our way tonight." Hawkins earned the hard-charger of the race, coming from 15th to finish second behind Buckingham and was pleased with the Tim Logan Racing entry. "I have heard a lot about this place. Trust me, I was on YouTube a lot this week to check it out. It was fun out there tonight. We just stayed out of trouble and came home in second. Congratulations to Shanon on the win." Pearson's third-place finish moved him to second place in the championship standings. "We just stayed out of trouble tonight. There were guys wrecking in front us, some had flat tires as well, but we stayed up there and had a solid finish." The winner's Roger Sellers-owned, Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by: Lazydays RV, 2150 Enterprises, Penske Racing Shocks, and FK Rod Ends.

  21. Hudson O'Neal Bags $15,000 at Smoky Mountain MARYVILLE, Tenn. (June 15, 2019) - Hudson O'Neal wrestled the lead from Mike Marlar on lap 30 and then cruised on to his third Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season on Saturday night at Smoky Mountain Speedway. Heath Lawson photo The Big Daddy 60 was the biggest paying single-day event in Smoky Mountain Speedway history with a first-place prize of $15,000 up for grabs. Ricky Weiss crossed the finish line in second, but he was several car lengths behind the winner. Weiss moved by Josh Richards on lap 47, and despite a caution with 11 laps remaining, he was unable to challenge O'Neal for the lead. Richards was third, with Tim McCreadie and Jimmy Owens completing the top five. Marlar was looking for his third Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win this month as the Tennessee veteran and O'Neal went back and forth for several laps with O'Neal finally gaining the lead for good with 30 laps remaining. Marlar suffered a left rear flat while running third to O'Neal and Josh Richards which forced a caution flag, ending Marlar's night as he took his car pit side on lap 36. O'Neal had to wait through a lap 49 caution before he extended his lead back out again over the field. The 18-year-old third-generation racer went on to record his second straight Father's Day weekend victory. Last year O'Neal scored his first career LOLMDS win by capturing the Clash at the Mag victory in Mississippi. "Hopefully this makes my dad feel a little better. He has had a rough weekend inside and out of his race car," said Hudson referring to his father Don, the 2014 series champion. "This one's for him. He has had such a rough weekend. What a great Father's Day gift. To do it two years in a row, it doesn't get any better than that." "This car was a rocketship tonight," O'Neal added. We started out a little slow. I had some concerns earlier in the night, but we made some changes and they went the right way for us. I felt just as good on lap 60 as I did on lap 1. It is not that often you get that kind of race car. We have been up-and-down all year long. We have found something. The cautions went our way tonight. Thanks to everybody for their help." Weiss came home with a runner-up finish after falling back as far as eighth. "Our car was little snug at the start. I was actually bottoming out. It seemed to work better the longer we went. We like the longer races. We started forward and then went back and then back to the front. Josh [Richards] and I had a good race for second. I thought I might have had something for Hudson there on that last restart, but I don't think he missed a mark. Hats off to him for a great race." Richards rallied for a podium finish. "Hudson could really hit the brown on the track. We thought we could be pretty good in the race. My nose folded under me a little bit; it was starting to chatter going into three. Ricky was able to get by us. We've had a fast car all weekend, but just no luck whatsoever."

  22. Mike Marlar rockets to LOLMDS Cherokee Speedway score GAFFNEY, S.C. (June 14, 2019) - Mike Marlar ran away with the 21st Annual Grassy Smith Memorial on Friday night at Cherokee Speedway. Marlar led flag-to-flag for his second Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season. Heath Lawson photo A terrific battle for the second spot took place between several drivers in the last five laps of the race. Davenport held Ross Bailes to secure the second spot finish at the checkers. Jimmy Owens came from the eighth starting position to finish in third. Completing the top five were Tim McCreadie and thirteenth starting, Don O'Neal, with Bailes slipping back to sixth on the final lap. Marlar's previous trip to Lucas Oil Victory Lane this season, came just two weekends ago in the Clash at the Mag at Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Mississippi. Tonight, he stamped his eleventh career series win in front of a packed grandstand at Cherokee Speedway. The 41-year-old Marlar was ecstatic in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. "We got a good qualifying lap here tonight and it just set us up for success. I don't feel like I drove my best race. I made a few mistakes out there. The cautions really helped me. They cleared out the lapped traffic. The guy leading here is really at a disadvantage because the cars in the back are just as fast as you are." "Devin [Moran] showed me a lane and it really helped me," Marlar added. "At the end of the race I felt like I was running really well. I came out here to race five or six years ago and I thought this place was awesome. It has been really good to me. It is a really technical race-track. There is always a ton of support around here." Davenport, who has yet to finish outside the top-five this season, recorded another podium finish. "We had to burn our stuff up a little too much. Ross and I had a good race for a long time. I am not sure what happened to him at the end. The cautions didn't go in our favor tonight. I thought maybe Mikey would come to us when we got into traffic, but it just wasn't meant to be." Owens charged through a pack of cars to get to third and was challenging Davenport for second when the checkered flag came out. "The middle was really good. I was able to move around well. I went to the top there a few times and I thought I was going to end up in the wall. It really sneaks up on you here. Moving down there was really good for the car. I didn't want to burn off the right rear, but we ended up with plenty of tire left." The winner's Ronnie Delk-owned, Rocket Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by: Marathon Oil, Mark Martin Timber and Farms, Franklin Enterprises, RS Equipment Sales and Rentals, Integra, and VP Race Fuels.

  23. Marlar shines in LOLMDS Magnolia 100-lapper COLUMBUS, Miss. (June 1, 2019) - Mike Marlar charged from his fifth starting spot to win Saturday night's GEICO Clash at the Mag - presented by Big River Steel at Magnolia Motor Speedway. Heath Lawson Photo With the $15,000 victory, Marlar becomes the ninth different winner of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series tour in 2019. The 41-year-old Tennessee veteran also became the first three-time winner of the annual Clash at the Mag. Tim McCreadie led the first three laps of the 100-lap main event until Marlar passed him for the top spot. Marlar then held McCreadie at bay for the remainder of the caution-free event to score the win. McCreadie crossed the line in second, marking his third-straight runner-up finish. The current Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series point leader, Jonathan Davenport finished in third followed by Josh Richards and Earl Pearson Jr. In Marlar's tenth- career LOLMDS victory, he and his crew were excited in Lucas Oil Victory Lane, remarking: "Typically, you run the bottom here, but lately you could float to the middle which is different than in past years. I had run the bottom for so long and I thought to myself if I am going to get passed it is going to be on the right side of me. I got out of line and passed some lapped cars. It was pretty close down in turn one passing some lapped cars. I had a few close calls." "This place is so racy, that's why we enjoy coming down here," Marlar added. "It's fun to race here and it gets you excited to race here. My car owner and I were wanting to take some time off this year. I was going to drive for Kevin [Rumley] and we just couldn't get everything together. It's clear that he [Rumley] is doing great with McCreadie and my situation is great as well." McCreadie completed a successful weekend as well. "Congrats to Mikey! He was better than us tonight. All-in-all for Sweeteners Plus and Bilstein, we continue to make strides with this whole program. It's been thrown together really quickly, and we are trying our hardest and we are gaining fast. We probably needed a caution to mix things up a little bit. We need more maneuverability and we will really have something." Davenport will maintain the series point lead heading into an off weekend for the series. "We didn't really know what the track was going to do tonight. When we decided to go the car was on point. I know there were guys coming up on the outside of me. We ran the leaders down and got into lapped traffic. We got together with a car down there in turn four and I guess he didn't see me. It towed it in pretty good and we were just hanging on from there. It was one of those what if races for sure."

  24. Davenport Strikes at 300 Raceway FARLEY, IOWA (May 17, 2019) - Jonathan Davenport dominated the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event on Friday night at 300 Raceway, leading all 50 laps and collecting $12,000 for the effort. Davenport survived a late-race charge from Tyler Erb to claim his sixth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season. Devin Moran trailed Davenport and Erb to the finish line, passing Josh Richards on the final lap to take third. Richards came home fourth, followed by Tim McCreadie who crossed the finish line in fifth after starting in 20th. Davenport took the lead at the start of the Truck Country 50, with polesitter Brian Birkhofer settling into the second spot. In only his second race of the 2019 season, Birkhofer set the Miller Welders Overall Fast Time and went on to earn the PFC Brakes Pole Award. Throughout the race, various drivers challenged for the top spot. Along with Birkhofer and Erb, Moran and Richards also made a bid for the lead. Erb closed the gap on Davenport in the final laps but came up just short at the finish line. The win marks Davenport's 42nd-career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory. He emerged from his car to the cheers of a large crowd. "I wasn't going to let another race slip away this weekend. Hudson did a great job last night. Hats off to my crew, I tore the car up last night, not on purpose. They worked hard on this car today and everything was spot-on tonight." "We were really close to fast time tonight," Davenport added. "We were second overall in time trials and won our heat. This new car has been on a rail. We've been saving it a little bit; I don't think we need to change a thing on it. They farmed the track, but we had the right set-up on it. Our car was so balanced. Thanks to Jack Cornett for giving us all that horsepower. Hats off the 300 Raceway staff and all of the fans that came out tonight." Erb was happy with his runner-up finish in the Best Performance Motorsports, Rocket. "I didn't think I could get by him [Davenport] at the end. We had a bad night last night. Our car has been fast, but we just haven't had any luck. I got to JD's right rear and chased him down at the end. The tires would come and go. You just had to make good decisions out there. I could see under caution that he [Davenport] had tread left on the right rear. I was worried about the left rears with all the tire spin in the last 10-15 laps." Moran reached a well-deserved podium finish with his last lap pass of Richards in the Big River Steel, Dunn-Benson Ford, Rocket. "I wish I hadn't picked the bottom on the restart. We had a good car tonight. To come from 16th to get third was a good finish for the team. The track cleaned up near the end and got really wide. It was a lot of fun out there for sure. It was kind of a tire game tonight. I was trying to conserve my tires the whole race. I didn't want to get a flat tire like some of the others did."

  25. Hudson O'Neal Grabs Second Lucas Oil Win of the Season at 34 Raceway WEST BURLINGTON, IOWA (May 16, 2019) - Hudson O'Neal passed Jonathan Davenport on lap 48 and went on to score his second win of the season on Thursday night at 34 Raceway. Heath Lawson photo O'Neal battled with his father Don for several laps after the 18-year-old charged from the 10th starting position. Then, a single file restart with three laps to go saw O'Neal pass Davenport to score a one-two finish for Longhorn Chassis. Hudson O'Neal's fourth career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory came over Davenport, Josh Richards, Kyle Bronson and Earl Pearson Jr. Don O'Neal took the lead heading the down the backstretch on lap 38, but that lap was never completed as contact between Don O'Neal and Davenport caused the caution flag when O'Neal came to a halt with a left rear flat. Davenport then went back in front with Hudson O'Neal in second. It was the fateful lap 47 that allowed Hudson O'Neal to saddle up behind Davenport. The 3-lap shootout was set, and Hudson O'Neal came out on top. Davenport then held off Richards by just half-a-car length for second. "Oh my gosh I am out of breath," said the winner in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. "The surface was bumpy, but it made for some good racing. I was all over this thing. It really widened out there at the end and it gave me a chance to make a move there on JD. We weren't very good at the beginning, but we continually got better and better. I just put myself in a good position there at the end." "I hate what happened to my dad," Hudson added. "We were battling hard. I thought for a moment I had a right rear flat under that one caution because it was lying low really bad. It scared me for a little bit. This car was on a rail tonight. We made the right adjustments to get it to the front. It's good to be back in Victory Lane after not being very good for a couple of months." Davenport congratulated the young O'Neal in Victory Lane. "It was a heck of battle with the O'Neal's and inside my own racecar. I am sure it was a heck of a show for the fans. I didn't know where I was going there sometimes. I want to tell Don [O'Neal] I am sorry. You can't see out of these things. As soon as he slid me, I ran over his left rear and I tried to get off of him." Richards' in theClint Bowyer Racing No. 14 battled with his teammate Don O'Neal before settling for a third-place finish. "We had a good car early and we drove our way up to third after starting seventh. I had a good there with Don. I kept bottoming out on the restarts. We were way too tight for the conditions, but it was a lot of fun out there tonight. The crew has been working hard, and I thought we might be able to get both Bowyer cars in the top three, but we will take it and head the next one."
