  1. 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."

  2. 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."

  3. 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."

  4. 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."

  5. 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."

  6. 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."

  7. 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."

  8. 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."

Completing the top ten were Tim McCreadie, Kyle Strickler, Vic Hill, Devin Moran, and Ryan King.

  9. 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."

  10. 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.

  11. 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." The winner's Ronnie Delk-owned Rocket Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by: Marathon, Mark Martin Timber and Farms, Franklin Enterprises, R.S. Equipment Sales and Rentals, Integra Shocks, and VP Fuels. Completing the top ten were Tyler Erb, Dane Dacus, Devin Moran, Bobby Pierce, and Don O'Neal.

  12. 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."

  13. 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." The winner's Todd and Vickie Burns-owned, Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Clements Racing Engine and sponsored by: Dyno One, West Side Tractor Sales Company, Sub-Surface of Indiana, Tarpy Trucking, VP Fuels, and Crawford Outdoor.

  14. HAGERSTOWN, MD (April 13, 2019) - Jonathan Davenport became the first repeat winner in Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned events at Hagerstown Speedway on Saturday night. Heading into tonight's event at the Dirt Capitol, the series had made 11 appearances and there had been 11 different winners. The defending National Champion led the entire race on his way to winning the 38th Annual Stanley Schetrompf Classic. Davenport now sits at five series wins so far in 2019, and his 41st overall. Brandon Sheppard roared to a runner-up finish, holding off Jimmy Owens at the line. Rick Eckert was fourth and Tim McCreadie rallied from his 19th starting position to round out the top five. "It's really great to become the first driver to win twice in series races at Hagerstown, this is such a historic track," said Davenport. I was getting really, really loose on that long green flag run and I got behind those lapped cars. Jimmy [Owens] and Sheppard were right on us. Thank goodness for that caution. It saved us. I haven't raced here many times; but it definitely brings back memories of my asphalt days. You have to drive the track straighter than most. You also have to have a different mindset to drive this track. Thank you to Jason, Tyler, Matt, and everybody who works on the crew." A caution for Jason Jameson on lap 25 allowed lapped traffic to clear out in front of Davenport after Owens and Sheppard closed to within a car length. On the restart, Davenport pulled away and Sheppard moved around Owens for second. "A couple of the lap-cars were giving me fits tonight. One of them kept switching lanes on me and I am not sure if he saw me because he was racing me side-by-side. I bumped wheels with him, and I thought here we go. Jack Cornett is here tonight, and he builds a great engine. Thanks to all of the fans for coming out tonight looks like they had a great turnout." Sheppard had his second straight runner-up finish with the series. "We were all bunched up racing for the lead and then the caution came out. JD and Owens were doing a good job and I was going to have a tough time passing them. It was a lot of fun out there. I had to run my stuff harder than I wanted to. Luckily, on the restart I slipped by Jimmy. I couldn't gain any ground on JD. I was trying all sorts of things to catch him, but I think I burnt my tires up too much. This was a lot better than my last showing at Hagerstown for sure." Tonight, Owens piloted the same back-up car which got him to victory lane Atomic on Thursday and recorded another podium finish on Saturday night. "JD was really good, and he was making his way through traffic really well. I felt at the time we had gotten to him [Davenport] and we were a little better than him. We had a bird's eye view and I thought we could sneak up on him and then the caution came out and ruined it for us. Our tires didn't refire and it was just a drag race until we got to traffic again."

  15. Owens recovers for Lucas Oil win at Atomic CHILLICOTHE, OHIO (April 11, 2019) - Jimmy Owens recovered from mechanical issues early on Thursday night to win the 5th Annual Buckeye Spring 50 at Atomic Speedway. The three-time National Champion led all 50 laps of the event for his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season. Owens broke a fan blade in hot laps, which relegated him to his back-up car. His backup entry proved to be the best of the night as he dominated the main event. Brandon Sheppard tried to track down Owens but came home in second-place. Jonathan Davenport came home in third. Tim McCreadie finished fourth and Earl Pearson took fifth at the finish. Owens started third and quickly darted to the lead on the opening lap with Tyler Erb following. Having won a pair of events last September at the Ohio Speed plant, Erb was looking for his third straight win at Atomic. Erb held the second spot until Sheppard got around him. A furious battle behind Owens ensued for the runner-up slot between Sheppard and several drivers, lasting several laps. Pearson went to the outside and briefly took second from Sheppard at the halfway mark. Sheppard came back a lap later to regain the position. Owens was set on cruise control for most of the race and was rolling around the 3/8ths mile track with as much as a straightaway lead at times. A caution flag with 43 laps complete appeared to set up a dash to the finish between Owens and Sheppard, but Owens pulled away to become the seventh different winner this year on the tour. The 47-year-old Owens was ecstatic to finally breakthrough with his first series win of 2019. "We fixed everything on the main car this week from last Saturday. We broke a fan blade in hot laps. Then we had to get our back-up car out. My hat is off to the crew for getting this car prepared. They busted their rear ends tonight. We had a quick turnaround time to get it in line just to qualify." "The crew gave me a good car that I could feel confident in," Owens added. "We had second quick time in our group and then we went out and won our heat race and so here we are in Victory Lane. We have a good car, a great team, and we are just as capable as anybody to run up front night in and night out. Thanks to the fans for coming tonight to watch a good show and thanks to the track crew for a well-prepared track." Sheppard congratulated Owens on his win. "We had a really good race tonight. Jimmy and his crew are really rolling. It is a lot of fun running against these Lucas Oil guys. Everybody races each other clean and it was getting exciting. Thanks for all of the fans for coming out on a Thursday night. Thanks to Mark Richards and Steve Baker for giving me this opportunity." Davenport was seeking his fifth series win of the season. "I tried to slide Brandon there once and couldn't quite clear him. I wanted to try again but I didn't have him cleared enough to do so and I wasn't going to take both of us out. We didn't take off like we wanted to," said the defending series champion who heads to Sharon Speedway on Friday night maintaining his points lead. The winner's Ramirez Motorsports Rocket Chassis is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by: Boomtest Well Service, Rhino Ag, Reece Monument Company, Tommy Pope Construction, FK Rod Ends, Keyser Manufacturing, Integra Shocks, Sunoco Race Fuels, and Red Line Oil.

  18. Brandon Sheppard tops Moran to claim 1st career LOLMDS win at Brownstown Speedway BROWNSTOWN, IND. (March 16, 2019) - Brandon Sheppard denied Devin Moran his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season on Saturday night at Brownstown Speedway. Heath Lawson photo By doing so, Sheppard scored his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory of the season with his first career win at the historic Brownstown Speedway. Sheppard becomes the fifth different winner on the tour this season after holding off a late-race charge from Devin Moran for the win. Jonathan Davenport finished third, with Hudson O'Neal and Tyler Erb completing the top five. Sheppard made a clean sweep of the night; setting the Miller Welders Overall Fast Time; and winning the first heat race of the night to earn the PFC Brakes Pole Award. Sheppard took the lead at the start of the 50-lap main event with Hudson O'Neal giving chase until the caution for debris on lap 21. On the restart, Devin Moran moved into second and held the runner-up position to the finish. The final caution of the race came with just two laps remaining. Moran and Davenport managed to get within striking distance, but Sheppard forged ahead at the end. "It is great to finally win at Brownstown," said Sheppard. "We have won a lot of heat races and started up front but never been able to put it all together in a night. This car is on rail right now. Thanks to Mark, Austin, Joel, and Danny we are hitting on all cylinders. They have worked their tails off on this car. It is just phenomenal right now. It's a dream to drive this car. I am ready to go to the next one." "I didn't really know if the cautions were helping me or hurting me," Sheppard added. "I was kind of maintaining my pace. The traffic was either in the bottom or the top because that was the line, they would be in. I was slowly breaking my way through the middle. I did all I could to get through there." Moran took home his best finish of the 2019 season. "Congrats to Brandon on the win. That was a good race for the lead there in the last few laps. This team is just getting better and better. For the Jackson 100 we are expecting a little better. I love coming here to Brownstown. My dad [Donnie] never won here so I was trying my best to get that first win for my family." Davenport, who was primed for a late race charge to the lead, took third place at the finish. "Congrats to those guys [Sheppard] that's their fifth win in a row. I think we need to make him start a lap down to give them a little bit of a challenge. All of my guys worked hard, thanks to Nutrien Ag Solutions." The winner's Mark Richards Racing, Rocket Chassis is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by: Valvoline, Seubert Calf Ranches, Ace Metal Works, Keyser Manufacturing, Gunter's Honey, and Integra Racing Shocks.

  19. 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."

  20. 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."

  22. 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."

  23. 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."

  25. 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."
