  1. $53,000 Prize Goes to Bobby Pierce GREENWOOD, Nebr. (July 20, 2019) - Bobby Pierce got his redemption at I-80 Speedway - scoring the biggest win of his career on Saturday night in the Imperial Tile 9th annual Silver Dollar Nationals. Pierce's first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season came exactly one year after he suffered the heartbreak of losing the race lead with three laps to go due to mechanical issues. Pierce took the lead from Chris Madden for the final time on lap 66 and cruised on for the victory to become the twelfth different winner this year on the tour. Madden wound up in second. Brandon Sheppard got around Scott Bloomquist late in the race to take third ahead of Bloomquist and hard-charging Dale McDowell in fifth. The event continued the tradition of exciting racing at I-80 Speedway with nine lead changes during the 80-lap affair. Tim McCreadie led the first 30 laps until Pierce took over the point for one circuit. Pierce who started sixth then yielded the lead back to McCreadie on lap 32. Madden was on the move early on reaching third on lap 32 after starting fourteenth on the grid. Madden then went for the lead, taking it away from McCreadie on lap 33. Madden held the top spot until lap 39 when Pierce regained control. Pierce was on top of the scoring pylon for six laps until once again Madden flexed his muscles and wrestled away the lead. Madden started to pull away from Pierce momentarily, but Pierce regrouped and tracked Madden down, finally overhauling him on lap 59. A caution with 20 laps to go allowed Madden to once again pick up the lead over Pierce. Pierce picked up his speed and momentum for the final time using the outside to pass Madden with fourteen laps remaining in the race and sailed on to the win. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the tenth time in his career, the 22-year-old Pierce was ecstatic. "Thanks to all the fans for coming out and thanks to Joe Kosiski for all he does for the fans and the racers. It is awesome what he is doing. Jeff Hoker and Mike Berger are here tonight, thanks to them for their support." "I felt really good. I had some trouble on the restarts. My dad was showing me different signals and wanting me to do more stuff out there. Luckily there wasn't a caution with a few laps to go because it really could have been interesting. It's the biggest win of my career. There were times tonight I didn't think it was going to happen. Thanks to my crew for keeping the bolts tight on everything." Madden came home the runner-up after leading for 26 laps. "It feels good to be back in the car. Cody Sommer and Scott [Bloomquist] have put their hearts into this giving us everything we needed. What an awesome job they have done the last three days down here in this heat. We never gave up and to come home with a second-place finish I am proud of everyone with the team. He [Pierce] puts his car in positions I am not sure anyone else can. He earned the win." After starting eighth, Sheppard rallied in the final fourteen laps to claim a podium finish. "My car just wasn't where I wanted it to be on the cushion. I felt like we couldn't run down low on the track, like several could. The restarts definitely helped me out. We were good when we restarted on the top, but on the bottom, we weren't nearly as good. Congrats tom Bobby and Chris, it was a lot of fun racing out there." The winner's Bob Pierce Racing, Rocket Chassis is powered by a Pro Power Racing Engine and sponsored by: Hoker Trucking, Allgayer, Inc., Mesilla Valley Transportation, Digital Copy Systems, Premier Waste Services, Border Tire, First Spear, Keyser Manufacturing, Budda Bert Transmissions, and Velocita. Completing the top ten were Jonathan Davenport, Tim McCreadie, Mike Marlar, Devin Moran, and Dennis Erb Jr. Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Race Summary Friday and Saturday, July 19-20, 2019 Imperial Tile 9th annual Silver Dollar Nationals I-80 Speedway - Greenwood, Nebr.

  2. Zeigler and McCreadie Will Lead Silver Dollar Nationals Field GREENWOOD, Nebr. (July 19, 2019) - On Friday night, there were five heat races in each round of the unique format at I-80 Speedway's Imperial Tile 9th annual Silver Dollar Nationals. In the first round, heat one was won by four-time Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion Earl Pearson Jr. who led all the way to pick up the win. Cody Laney finished in the second spot with Corey Zeitner and sixth-place starter Kyle Bronson trailing at the checkers. In heat two, Tim McCreadie used a restart after a caution flag to take the lead from Allen Hopp as he came from the fourth starting spot to take the victory in the twelve-lap race. Hopp came home in second followed by sixth-place starting Tyler Bruening and Jimmy Owens, who came from seventh. In heat three, it was all Team Zero, as teammates Chris Madden and Scott Bloomquist finished one-two in the twlve-lap race. Madden won in his first appearance at I-80 Speedway. Mike Marlar came from the 8th starting spot to secure the third-place finish just ahead of fourth-place finisher Devin Moran who started ninth. In heat four, current Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series point leader Jonathan Davenport went uncontested for the victory. Mason Zeigler was the big mover of the heat after coming from seventh to finish in second behind Davenport. Brandon Sheppard snared the third spot with Nick Deal in his Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series debut rounding out the top four. The final heat in round one saw a terrific race between Nebraska native Bill Leighton Jr., Tyler Erb, and Bobby Pierce. Leighton led Erb and Pierce to the line. Leighton went back-and-forth several times in the race for the lead and scored his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series heat win in front of the home crowd. Josh Leonard finished fourth. The first heat in round two went to three-time Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion Jimmy Owens, who came from the fourth starting position. Bobby Pierce came from seventh to finish in second, with Brandon Sheppard and Dennis Erb Jr. finishing third and fourth. The second heat in round two was taken by Hall-of-Famer Billy Moyer over Hudson O'Neal. O'Neal stayed close to Moyer for most of the race, finishing one-car length behind at the checkers. Tyler Bruening came from fifth to take third with Nick Deal finishing fourth. The third heat saw Devin Moran fade to fifth at one point early in the race but recover to capture the victory over Josh Richards, Chad Simpson, and Scott Bloomquist. The fourth heat went to Mason Zeigler. The 2018 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Rookie-of-The Year continues his impressive runs this weekend by grabbing the win after starting in fourth.

The final heat of the night went to Ricky Weiss as the defending Sunoco Race Fuels North/South 100 winner cruised to the win by leading every lap.

  3. Davenport Dashes to Diamond Nationals Finale WHEATLAND, Mo. (July 14, 2019) - Jonathan Davenport picked up his second-career CMH Diamond Nationals - Presented by Super Clean on Sunday night at the Lucas Oil Speedway. It was not easy for the defending Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion as he had to hold off a hard-charging Mike Marlar to pick up the $15,000 victory. Davenport's only other win in the annual July event was in 2015. Marlar managed to pass Davenport for the lead as the two came out of turn two on lap 52 but a caution for Tyler Erb negated the pass for the top spot. Davenport opened up a couple of car lengths advantage over Marlar on the restart. Marlar closed the gap in the final two laps, but came up just short at the finish line. Shanon Buckingham started alongside Marlar in row number five and went on for another impressive run for the second night in a row as he captured the third finishing position. Tim McCreadie, who led the first ten laps of the race, finished in fourth followed by Billy Moyer. Davenport and McCreadie started on the front row. McCreadie got the jump on Davenport and took the early lead. Davenport passed McCreadie for the lead on lap 11 and held a comfortable lead for a large portion of the race as McCreadie held the second spot. As the checkers grew closer, Marlar started to make his move by taking the second spot away from McCreadie on lap 45. Marlar then tracked down Davenport but lost all momentum, after clearing Davenport just before the caution for Erb came out. Davenport led the last seven laps to record his ninth series win of 2019. "The track started to clean up at the end we were trying to move around," said the 35-year-old Georgia native. "We were trying to find a line that would work. My line kept going away at the top, so I moved back to the bottom. I guess that caution saved us. Mike [Marlar] has been really good here lately. He has been really consistent. We finally got some speed back in this thing." "Steve Martin is here from Nutrien Ag Solutions," Davenport added. "We have had a heck of a week so far. I want to thank my crew Jason, Tyler, and Matt. They made this car a whole lot better for the feature. We just all put our heads together and we got the results we wanted here tonight. I would like to get another championship for Lance Landers Motorsports." "We would have had the pass of the night," said Marlar who recorded another strong finish with the series. "I am not going to whine about it. I got paid to drive a race car tonight so things aren't so bad. I really enjoy coming out here. It is such an awesome facility. It is always a great crowd here. There's a lot of electricity in the air. We had an awesome weekend." Buckingham who is one of 11 drivers to win an LOLMDS race this season had his best ever finish at Lucas Oil Speedway. "This place is super nice. How could you not like this place? For whatever reason this track just fits my driving style. My crew worked themselves to death to get us a podium finish here tonight. Those cautions killed me, if we could have had the last 19 laps all green, I think we would have been up there challenging for the win." The winner's Lance Landers Motorsports-owned, Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and is sponsored by: Nutrien Ag Solutions, ASC Warranty, Penske Racing Shocks, Valvoline, Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas, Spartan Mowers, and Hawkeye Trucks.

  4. FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (June 13, 2019) - Kyle Bronson battled to re-take the lead from Brandon Overton on lap 44 and then cruised to his second career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory on Thursday night at Fayetteville Motor Speedway. Heath Lawson Photo With the win, Bronson becomes the tenth different winner this season on the tour. A healthy crowd was on hand for the Dunn-Benson Ford Wayne Gray Sr. Memorial - presented by GETSCO. Trailing Bronson and Overton across the finish line were Tyler Erb, Hudson O'Neal, and Jonathan Davenport. Bronson is also the fifth different winner in the five appearances by Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series at Fayetteville. Erb led the first twelve laps of the race until Davenport forged ahead on the thirteenth circuit. Davenport held the lead over Bronson until lap 31 when Bronson took over the point. Overton led one lap until Bronson raced back around him for good with six laps remaining. It was a big week for Bronson as he celebrated his 29th birthday on Tuesday and picked up the victory in his first-ever appearance at Fayetteville. "I have had a really good car the last few months, but we don't have the results to show for it. With all the bad luck we have had, we showed how fast of a car we have tonight. I let JD [Davenport] get the lead and I was kicking myself about how I let him by." "It was a fun track to drive on, it had some character," Bronson added. "I have to give a big thanks to Mark Richards, he has helped me so much. We stay at Bob Pierce's shop when we are out on the road. This is the first time we have gotten to come here because we got rained out here last year. We have a fast race car and I knew our time was going to come to get another win. Hopefully we can ride this wave out a little longer." Overton in the Rum Rummer Racing, Rocket Chassis finished second as he and his team were competing with heavy hearts after the passing of crew member Billy Vacek. "It's been a tough week with Billy's passing. I am going to try so hard like I did tonight to get a win for him this weekend. Our hats are off to Kyle for the win. I led a lap and then he got back around me. He [Bronson] did a really good job. I really wanted to get that win for Billy. I guarantee you the fans got their money's worth tonight. I am looking forward to Cherokee tomorrow night." Erb continued a string of impressive runs with his third-place finish. "We got the lead early, but the more the race went on, the crazier it got. Kyle did a good job, especially on the restarts. I think we were about three-wide for a second. We finished and I don't know how. We have two more nights of racing so we have to work on it some more to get this car better. Congrats to Kyle, he is one of my best buddies, we travel up and down the road together and I am really happy for him."

  5. Davenport Rules North Georgia CHATSWORTH, GA (April 6, 2019) - The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series returned to North Georgia Speedway for the first time since 2009 on Saturday night. Jonathan Davenport conquered the red clay oval for his fourth victory of the season. Davenport took control on lap 20 by darting under race leader David Payne. Davenport then led the rest of the way for a convincing victory in front of his home-state crowd. With the win, Davenport maintains his championship point lead. Payne set the Miller Welders Overall Fast Time and went on to win the third heat, putting him on the front-row outside of Josh Richards for the 50-lap main event. Payne led the first 19 laps of the race until Davenport slid under him heading into turn three on lap 20. Payne then ran second to Davenport before he suffered a flat left rear tire on lap 25 forcing him to pit. Devin Moran picked up the chase for the lead and challenged Davenport several times before fading. Tyler Erb; who entered the event second in points to Davenport; then moved into the runner-up position. Erb was attempting to track down Davenport but on lap 37 he hooked the cushion and spun to a stop, forcing a caution flag. The final caution of the race came on lap 42. In the closing laps, Davenport pulled away from the Clint Bowyer teammates, Don O'Neal and Josh Richards to score the win. O'Neal had his best finish of the year by taking second with Richards finishing third. Moran and Earl Pearson Jr. completed the top five. Davenport was jubilant in victory lane before an appreciative crowd. "I was kind of glad to see a few of those cautions. I was needing a water break," Davenport said jokingly. "I have never won a late model race here. This is so fun to come back to almost my hometown crowd and get this win. I grew up just an hour-and-a-half from here. My crew chief is Jason Durham, this is a big win for him as well. This is basically his home track." "I didn't think we could get it done," Davenport added. It was cool to race with David [Payne]. I grew up racing against him and us battling for the lead was pretty great. He had a good car until he had that flat. I drove a line I had never really driven here before. I have seen so many guys passed coming off turn four here. I moved around enough to where I could get comfortable out there." O'Neal, who moved into second on lap 39, was happy with his podium finish. "Man, we need a win bad. After last night it feels good to run up front like that. It was a good night for the Bowyer cars running second and third. The track slowed down after a while. Josh slid under me once and I got back around him. We needed to build some momentum heading into next weekend." Richards started on the pole but fell back significantly as he nearly spun in turn four on the opening circuit. "I was trying to get the lead. I drove it into three and it nearly got away from me. Jonathan and Don did a great job. Like Don said, it was a good night for Clint Bowyer Racing." The winner's Lance Landers Motorsports-owned Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by: Nutrien Ag Solutions, ASC Warranty, Penske Racing Shocks, Valvoline, Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas, and Spartan Mowers. Completing the top ten were Hudson O'Neal, Billy Moyer Jr., Tim McCreadie, Tyler Erb, and Will Roland.

  8. Davenport Strikes at East Bay TAMPA, FLA. (February 6, 2019) - The defending Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion, Jonathan Davenport survived a torrid battle with Brandon Sheppard to register his first series win of 2019 on Wednesday night at East Bay Raceway Park Courtesy LOLMDS PR Davenport took the lead from Sheppard on lap 26 and then held off Tyler Erb to win the Wrisco Industries Winternationals presented by Lucas Oil. It was Davenport's fifth-career win at the "Clay by the Bay" and the 37th Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory of his career. Erb's Best Performance Motorsports, Rocket entered the event winning three of the first four events of the season and was looking for his third straight victory at East Bay. Josh Richards came from the 23rd starting spot in the Clint Bowyer Racing, Peak Antifreeze and Coolant, Rocket to place third. Brandon Overton finished fourth after starting 18th. Sheppard rounded out the top five. A former Lucas Oil Rookie of the Year, Colton Flinner earned the first PFC Brakes Pole Award of his career and led the first eight laps of the main event before yielding to Brian Shirley on the ninth circuit. Davenport started fifth and kept pace with the leaders before charging to the point on the twelfth circuit. Davenport held the lead until Sheppard move ahead on lap 24. Davenport quickly fought back, passing Sheppard on lap 26 to take the lead for the final time. "I definitely wanted to see that last caution," said Davenport. "I was getting into lapped traffic and everybody was on the bottom going into one and two. Everybody out there earned their paycheck tonight. This is the slickest place in the world. When I went into three and four, I just put it on the floor. I can't thank my crew enough. We all put our heads together. We went back through our notes to see what we were missing on the set-up and their hard work paid off." Erb maintained his solid start to the season with a second-place finish. "Not winning that heat race and starting eighth probably hurt us tonight. Those restarts were wild. I was on the outside everytime and I didn't want to be there. We had a good race going. I hated to see that caution once I got past Sheppard. I could tell that JD's [Jonathan Davenport's] crew was telling him to run down the middle. It was a really great night. Good job to JD, Josh [Richards], and Sheppy [Sheppard]. It was a crazy and exciting race for sure." Richards overcame issues in his heat race and rebounded with a strong third-place run. "We had a long night. The motor hadn't been running right. We have had some fuel problems the last few days. I told the crew something wasn't right. We made a change right before the feature and I was just going to ride around there and it started going pretty good. We had a shot at the lead, but I'm happy to finish third." The winner's Lance Landers Motorsports, Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and is sponsored by: Nutrien Ag Solutions, Spartan Mowers, ASC Warranty, Penske Racing Shocks, Valvoline, and Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas. Completing the top ten were Kyle Bronson, Earl Pearson Jr., Brian Shirley, Don O'Neal, and Devin Moran.

  11. McDowell Captures Fourth Dixie Shootout WOODSTOCK, GA (September 29, 2018) - Dale McDowell dominated the Lucas Oil Dixie Shootout on Saturday night at Dixie Speedway. The Georgia native set the Miller Welders overall fast time, won his heat, and led all 50-laps to score his fourth-career win in the annual event. Jonathan Davenport finished second after making several charges at McDowell throughout the main event. Josh Richards finished in third after yielding second to Davenport on lap 18. Brandon Overton came across the finish line in fourth. Tim McCreadie notched his second-straight top five finish with his fifth-place run. "It was a great night for us. We qualified well and started up front. Thanks to Shane [McDowell] and everybody with the team. They all worked extremely hard on this car and it paid off tonight. I was thinking of Mike [Swims] when I came around for the checkered flag. I felt like he was talking to me and saying good job buddy or something like that. Thanks to all of the Swims family, this place has remained such a solid piece of racing history for years and years. Thanks to all of you race fans, without you, we couldn't do this." A caution with 25-laps completed helped McDowell as Davenport had cut the gap between the two. "I never thought I would see the day when clean air is so important in dirt track racing. When I got behind those guys I was trying to lap, it was dirty, messy air, and I couldn't maneuver the car like I wanted to. When you are out front in those situations, you are just a sitting duck. Those guys behind you are going to go where you aren't." "I figured JD [Davenport] was on the top side and Shane [McDowell] was giving me signals that he was closing. He looked really good in his heat, so I figured he was on the top side and Josh was in the middle. I had to get kind of greedy and those guys are tough week in and week out. It's so special to win this race," said the 52-year-old driver in Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the ninth time in his career. With his win, he becomes the 19th different winner on the tour in 2018. "I really don't know if I wanted to see that caution at lap 25," said Davenport, who extended his series point lead with his runner-up finish. "We were pretty good in lapped traffic. We were quite maneuverable and that's how we got by Josh. The track was cleaning up in a hurry. Congratulations to Dale, he had tough luck last night while leading at Tri-County. This might be the best I have ever raced here. I grew-up about an hour and a half from here. It was a great points night for us as well." Richards was happy with his podium finish. "We had a really good car tonight. I have to thank Clint Smith for giving me some pointers, he has a lot of experience racing here and it definitely helped me. We had a pretty good car for the feature. We just need to fine tune it a little bit. Towards the end I was just trying to ride and save the right rear tire."

  12. Late Pass Propels Pierce at Brownstown BROWNSTOWN, IND. (September 23, 2018) - Bobby Pierce passed race leader Jonathan Davenport as the two headed to the white flag and held off Davenport on the final circuit to win Sunday afternoon's 39th Annual Jackson 100 at Brownstown Speedway. The win also marks Pierce's third trip to Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Victory Lane this season and his first at the historic quarter-mile oval. Mason Zeigler led the first seventeen laps until Tim McCreadie powered to the point. McCreadie held the lead until lap 60 when Davenport roared from the sixth-starting position to take over the top spot. After a caution with 19 laps to go Davenport began to pull away. Pierce remained glued to the bottom of the track as Davenport's lead slowly evaporated. Pierce pulled even with Davenport in the waning laps and was able to make the pass as the two exited turn four heading for the white-flag. Pierce then held off a last lap effort by Davenport to take the victory. McCreadie crossed the finish line in third. Jimmy Owens stormed through the field to finish fourth, after pitting on lap 57 for a tire change. Darrell Lanigan came home in fifth. Pierce was breathless in his Lucas Oil Victory Lane post-race interview. "Wow, out of all of the places to win my first big race of the season, I didn't think it would happen here at Brownstown. You have to stay so focused here. It gets really slick. To finish second to JD [Davenport] would not have been bad. Thanks to all the fans for coming. I don't know what to say, my emotions have taken over." "It's been a long year. We have been so close to getting some big wins, to finally get it feels really good," Pierce added. "I have got to thank my dad and Danny Myers. I didn't think what they suggested would work. I think I won a kid modz race here before, but this is obviously very special, this track has such a great racing history." "On that last restart I didn't know if I could stay with him [Davenport] but on the long-run I think I was better than him. It worked out, I don't know how it did. I can't wait to watch the re-play of this race." With his runner-up finish, Davenport will maintain the series points lead heading to Dixie and Rome next week. "Bobby is good no doubt about it. He gave me the Silver Dollar Nationals back in July at I-80. He [Pierce] did a heck of a job. On that last restart I thought I might be in trouble because I didn't have a lot of grip left on the tires. I think I let them cool off too much. From the way we started the weekend and after starting seventh in our heat race and to get to the front, hats off to my crew. We are headed in the right direction and it was a good night as well." McCreadie, who led 41 of the 100 laps commented on his third-place finish. "It was a lot of fun out there today. Hats off to Bobby and Jonathan, we are happy to be competitive. We are doing it harder than anyone in the pit area, it's great to run up front against these guys."

  13. Owens conquers Late Model Knoxville Nationals KNOXVILLE, IOWA (September 15, 2018) - Three-time Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series champion walked away with a $40,000 check after ruling the 15th Annual Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Store. Owens took the lead on lap 41 from Brandon Sheppard and held off a charging Bobby Pierce to score his first Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals victory. Don O'Neal fought off a late-race challenge from Josh Richards to finish second. Richards came home in third, followed by Scott Bloomquist and 28th starter Brian Shirley. Gaining momentum from a lap 38 restart, Owens powered on lap 41. Owens stretched his lead to a full straightaway mid-race before encountering lapped traffic on lap 75, opening the door for Pierce. The duo crossed the line door-to-door on the 80th circuit before Pierce slipped over the berm and lost his momentum, relinquishing the spot to Owens. Don O'Neal moved into second after a lap-82 restart, shuffling Pierce to third. The final caution waved on lap 88 when O'Neal and Pierce made contact while battling for second. Owens sailed away in the final laps to become the twelfth different winner of the annual event. "This is awesome," Owens said. "I have to thank Leon Ramirez and all of my friends and family for believing in me. Thanks to God for a safe race and to all of the fans. I hope Leon, and everyone was watching tonight cheering me on. They have had enough heartbreak like I have this year. It's awesome to get this win and thanks to my crew for busting their tails." "When Bobby [Pierce] got up beside me it didn't change how I was running," Owens added. "We a good car. The lapped cars were running three and four wide and I knew those guys behind me were going to close in on me. I was expecting some sort of pass from someone. It was so hard to maneuver through traffic because the track was so good tonight." O'Neal was looking for his second-career Late Model Nationals victory. "The cushion was really treacherous especially at the end of the race. We would fall back a spot or two on the restarts. We have had a little bad luck and been off a few times, but we got things turned around here tonight and it helps the morale of the Peak Antifreeze team." Richards, who has earned four, second-place finishes in the event was happy with his podium finish. "I had a blast out there. We had some problems yesterday that got us behind. We could have gotten some more points last night, but thanks to everyone on the Best Performance team for working hard on the car. I think we were a little better than Don [O'Neal] at the end I just couldn't quite squeeze by him. We had a fun race there."

  14. Sheppard Romps from Nineteenth to Win at Knoxville KNOXVILLE, IOWA (September 14, 2018) - From nineteenth on the grid, Brandon Sheppard charged through the field to win Friday night's portion of the Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Store. Sheppard used a late-race restart to take the top spot from Frank Heckenast Jr. and then sprinted away for his fifth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory of 2018 and his first-ever win at Knoxville. Heckenast led from the onset of the 25-lap main event as he looked for his third victory of the season. A restart with six laps remaining was the ticket for Sheppard, who had climbed through the field for the second night in a row. Sheppard dove to the inside of the race track entering turn one and powered by Heckenast down the back straightaway to grab the lead from his fellow Illini driver. Sheppard pulled away in the closing laps to clinch the $7,000 victory. Heckenast finished second followed by Don O'Neal in third. Jonathan Davenport came home in fourth after running as high as second in the race. Tim McCreadie, who started tenth, rounded out the top five. "I can't believe it," said the 25-year-old in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. "My crew has been working so hard this week. We have had a really fast car the whole time. We qualified good the last two nights, but we started so deep in the heat races. The earlier heat races it's hard to pass, but the later heats it's a lot better once the track slicks off. The feature tonight I hope it's a lot like tomorrow night, because it's a lot of fun. This is the Knoxville I love coming to." "My car was a little tight there for a while, but I made up good time on the bottom. I had a good restart one time and I hit one-and-two just right and I went around a couple of guys. I got to third and then I was hoping on the restart to start on the bottom. I learned from Josh [Richards] here in 2013 about getting the lead. When Frankie [Heckenast] entered turn one on that last restart he drifted up high and that just opened the door on the bottom for me." Heckenast, who was seeking his first career Lucas Oil win, held on for the second spot at the finish. "We had a really car tonight. We have been good all weekend. We had a fifth here last night. We are kind of parked over there by ourselves. We were really close tonight. I can't thank everyone enough. I gave the race away on the restart. On the restarts they would get such a run on me into one. I thought I could hang out there on the top and get a run off of two, but Brandon obviously had a lot of traction. His car was good. I guess if we are going to have one taken away I would rather have it tonight than tomorrow night." O'Neal, who won the main event at Knoxville in 2011, finished in third to earn the fourth-starting spot for Saturday night's finale. "All-in-all it was good run for us tonight. We had a good race there at the end with Davenport and we were able to get by him. We are getting better this week, we just need to get a little better for tomorrow night. We would have liked to have won tonight, but tomorrow night is what really counts."

  15. Tyler Erb Triumps at Knoxville KNOXVILLE, IOWA (September 13, 2018) - Tyler Erb scored his first career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win on Thursday night at Knoxville Raceway. The 21-year-old Texan took the lead from Mason Zeigler with eight laps to go to become the eighteenth different winner on the series tour in 2018. Earl Pearson Jr. passed Chad Simpson on the final lap to finish in second. Jimmy Owens finished in fourth followed by Frank Heckenast Jr. Zeigler, who leads the Lucas Oil Rookie of the Year chase, led the first sixteen laps of the race until he jumped the cushion in turn four, leaving the door open for Erb to take the top spot. Erb then pulled away to take the victory in night number one of the 15th Annual Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Store. An emotional Erb in Lucas Oil Victory Lane thanked a multitude of people for sticking with him this year. "Thanks to everyone who helps me. It's been a long year and a lot of stuff has happened. Thanks to Wayne Childress and Steven Roberts. It feels like I have been racing forever and it has not been that long. This is the sweetest feeling I have ever had in my life." "I was pretty good there. I had a good run going on him [Zeigler] and I hit that burm in two. Once he [Zeigler] jumped the cushion I figured I had better go, it might have been my only shot. Words cannot even describe how I feel right now." Pearson slid in front of Chad Simpson off the final turn to finish runner-up to Erb. "That's all my fault, Chad and I are real good friends. I miscalculated there on the slide job. I hit the black and just slid up in front of him. My apologizes to him and I am just glad it didn't take out both of us. I don't drive that way and like I said it was just a miscalculation on my part. I was riding around the top. We were not very good on the bottom. That last caution definitely helped us starting on the outside." Simpson, the current Lucas Oil MLRA points leader finished third. "We had a really good race car. I think early in the race when I was trying to take the lead I used up my right rear tire too much. There late in the race I was just kind of wheel spinning with it. I am sure it is all shredded up really good. It was a good night for us and a good finish. It should be a good point night for us."

  16. Brandon Overton scores LOLMDS win at The Hillbilly Hundred MIDDLEBOURNE, W.V. (September 2, 2018) - Brandon Overton won the richest one-day prize in dirt late model racing history, capturing the 50th Annual General Tire Hillbilly Hundred at Tyler County Speedway on Sunday night. The 27-year-old took the lead from home-state favorite, Jared Hawkins on lap 70 and led the rest of the way to the $50,000 payday. Hawkins managed to hold off Mason Zeigler for second. Zeigler came home in third with Jimmy Owens and Gregg Satterlee completing the top five drivers. Overton received congratulations from his crew after a hard-earned victory as he entered Lucas Oil Victory Lane. "I can't quite shaking. We just had the worst two nights of racing I think I have ever had. Last week at Mansfield we didn't even make the race. It's just a miserable feeling. We ran some regional races and did pretty good and we thought we were going to come up here and show everybody what we are made of. We got beat down pretty quick. There are just different parts of the country where you need to race different. Last night we were about to get lapped and to come back tonight and win, this is great." "I am glad to have the support of everybody behind me. I am thankful for Billy Franklin for giving me this opportunity. Billy hasn't said one thing. We have run terrible the last two nights and hasn't said nothing. That's why I love to drive for him. I would rather be on the upside than the downside with this deal. I didn't know what was going to happen after the Dream, but it couldn't have ended up any better than it has," Overton added. Hawkins, who had the capacity crowd rooting for him, nearly pulled off the win. "Early on in the race I was just feeling out the car and where I could run it best. I just tried to maintain a good pace and take care of my stuff. I was just trying to be there at the end. I guess I needed to move up on him [Overton]. He just got up on the wheel and got it done. I love racing with these Lucas Oil guys. It's a lot of fun to do that. Thanks to all of the fans for coming out and thanks to Tim Logan for giving me a shot at driving his car." Zeigler, who currently leads the Rookie of the Year chase, came home in third. "I didn't do well in qualifying and it put us behind. I think if we would have started up front we would have been even better. It is what it is. I am happy for those two guys who ran up front. Congratulations to Brandon on the win. It was good to see the top three being Rocket Chassis. Brandon was really good. I think we could have run second. I got up on Jared [Hawkins], but that was about it."

  18. Pearson Powers to Dirt Million Victory MANSFIELD, OHIO (August 25, 2018) - Earl Pearson Jr. added the Inaugural Dirt Million at the Mansfield Motor Speedway to his impressive list of career victories. His late-race pass around Bobby Pierce allowed him to take home the $202,993.50 first-place prize. The crowd erupted as he took the checkered flags ahead of the field. Pearson was the sixth and final leader of the thrilling 100-lap event. The capacity crowd were kept on the edge of their seats throughout the race, right up until the checkers flew. Pearson started 19th on the grid and pitted twice during the race. The first time was after receiving damage in a multi-car accident early in the race. The 4-time Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion began his surge through the pack late in the race. A caution flag with eleven laps to go helped, eliminating the gap that Pierce had managed to gain over the field. Pierce started 22nd and charged through the field quickly. He was leading with eleven laps to go when the final caution of the race appeared. Pierce then relinquished the lead to Pearson but mounted several challenges on the leader in the waning laps. He ultimately found himself on the podium one spot short of the pinnacle, finishing in second. Gregg Satterlee also charged from the rear of the field to take third. Ricky Weiss and Scott Bloomquist completed the top five finishers. "Well, first off I want to thank Bobby Pierce. With this kind of money on the line he could have pulled a slide-job on me, but he raced me clean. He is a class act. He is going to win a lot of money in his career. Thanks to all the fans here. The kind of money that the track put up for this race is amazing, and it's a great thing for this sport. I can't say enough about my crew." "I got in that wreck down in turn one early on, and I kept coming in and they kept working on the car each time. I knew once I got to the front that their work had paid off. They gave me a shot at the win, and I attribute our success tonight to all of their hard work and not giving up. I would like to thank Ronnie Stuckey, Garrett Alberson, and J.C. Wright, and everybody else on the car that helps." The race saw six different leaders attempting to make a career-best payday. Don O'Neal, Ricky Weiss, Shannon Babb. Jimmy Owens, Pierce and Pearson all took turns at the top spot. "When I restarted on the outside after that final caution I knew my car was pretty good. I got ahead of Ricky [Weiss] and then me and Bobby [Pierce] had a good little race for the lead. I knew he was going to run the top. Once I got in front of him I knew I had to defend the top, because that was the only way I was going to keep him behind me. I can't believe this. This is just a dream come true. I am proud to see all of these people here," said the winner in Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the fifth time in 2018. Pierce also thrilled the crowd once again with his rim-riding exploits and commented in Victory Lane about coming up just short of winning. "That was such a fun race! I can't thank Cody and Jacob here at Mansfield enough for what they are doing for the sport. It might be unique and different but it is what we need to grow the sport. Thanks to all of these fans for coming out and watching. I didn't need that last caution, but I also didn't know how big of a lead I had. My dad was signaling to me and I guess Earl came in and got some tires. It definitely showed at the end because he was pretty good. I was just trying to hang on at the end. My right front tire was kind of giving up on me." Last year's runner-up in the Lucas Oil Rookie of the Year chase, Gregg Satterlee, joined Pearson and Pierce on the podium. "We went a little softer on tires than most anyone in the field. We tried to keep the tires under us for most of the race. We had a really good car. It was really balanced. Earl just snuck by me. Congrats to Earl on the win. Those last 15-20 laps had to be pretty entertaining to watch." The winner's Ronnie and Terri Stuckey-owned Black Diamond Chassis is powered by a Clements Racing Engine and sponsored by: Lucas Oil Products, P&W Sales, Tegeler Wrecker and Crane, Rauen Precision Machining, DriveWFX.com, Midwest Sheet Metal, Sunoco Race Fuels, Papich Constriction, 5-Star Shop service, David Petersen Motorsports, and Cooper's Country Meat Packers. Completing the top ten were Brandon Sheppard, Steve Casebolt, Dale McDowell, Darrell Lanigan, and Max Blair.

  19. Lanigan and Davenport Claim LOLMDS Dirt Million Duels MANSFIELD, OHIO (August 24, 2018) - Darrell Lanigan and Jonathan Davenport each won a feature event on Friday night at Mansfield Motor Speedway, kicking off the inaugural Dirt Million. Lanigan went to Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the first time in 2018 and became the sixteenth different winner in 38 events this season. Lanigan led all the way en-route to the win over Josh Richards, Mike Marlar, Mason Zeigler and Tyler Erb. Jonathan Davenport fought off challenges from Ricky Weiss and Don O'Neal to claim Duel Two. Weiss and O'Neal finished second and third respectively. Devin Moran and Shannon Babb completed the top five in the second 30-lap event. "This pretty cool to start the weekend like this," said Lanigan. "This hot rod was good tonight. I put the set-up on that Anthony Burroughs had. I told myself just hit my marks and be patient. I could hear somebody (Richards) on that last lap. I didn't see him there yet, he wasn't all the way beside me, he gave me plenty of room. He is a true competitor. He wasn't going to take me out. I can't thank Clint and Casey Bowyer enough and all of the guys at the shop." Richards was pleased with his second-place finish. "I wish I had moved to the top sooner. I ran the bottom in three and four. On that last lap I probably should have went to the top to try and get by him [Lanigan]. I just slammed on the brakes going into one. I didn't want to take both of us out. It's a good feeling to be locked into the show tomorrow night." The top four finishers in each of the 30-lap duel features are locked into the Dirt Million on Saturday night. Those drivers drew for starting positions in an eight-lap dash that will determine the first eight spots on the grid for the 100-lap main event. Marlar, who was debuting a new Longhorn Chassis for car-owner, locked into Saturday's A-Main. "I thought we had a real good shot at winning the race. I was about to get by Darrell for the lead and then we had that caution. I guess Darrell's guys moved him down on the track. Then I went to the top and got my right front bumper on the cushion." Zeigler, who challenged Lanigan for the lead early on in the race, took the fourth and final transfer to tomorrow night's feature event. "The car was really good tonight. I thought for a second we were going to win it. That second restart I got crowded on the front stretch and it cost me. We all got bottled up down in one and two and I came out of that corner in sixth I think. It is what it is we are in the show tomorrow night and that is all that counts."

Completing the top ten in Duel One were Chase Junghans, Frank Heckenast Jr., Brandon Sheppard, Earl Pearson Jr., and Kyle Bronson. Davenport's win was hard-fought. "We had a real good car tonight. This is a new car and it's only the second-race on it. We still have a little bit to tweak on it. It has some different characteristics than my other one. I think I like this one. It definitely turns a little better. We might need to tighten it up a little more for the 100-lapper tomorrow night." Weiss, the defending Sunoco North/South 100 Champion, was pleased with his performance. "Our team has just been digging. I can't thank the boys enough. We have been working on this thing hard. It seems every time out it gets better and better. I was happy with fourth, then went got to third. I got under O'Neal. I didn't want to see that caution. I may kick myself tonight once I see the video on what things I should have done differently." O'Neal, who won the LOLMDS event at Mansfield last month, claimed another podium finish. "I just didn't make a good enough arc getting into one on that last restart. It killed me because those other guys got a run on me coming off of two. Other than that, I am pretty happy with the race car and hopefully we can get this Peak car in victory lane tomorrow night." Moran, one of the homestate favorites heading into the weekend, was happy with his finish. "To get a top-four finish from that race, I will be able to sleep good tonight knowing we are in the show. We weren't horrible there. We definitely need to get better. We will just go back and put our thinking caps on for tomorrow night and hopefully we can have it tuned in."

  23. Bloomquist celebrates 600th career victory at Diamond Nationals WHEATLAND, MO (July 14, 2018) - Scott Bloomquist took the lead on lap 32 and then pulled away to his 600th career victory on Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway during the CMH Diamond Nationals. The Hall-of-Fame driver picked up his sixth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season and his all-time series leading 92nd victory. Jimmy Owens led the first 31 laps of the race as he looked to capitalize on his past Lucas Oil Speedway success. Bloomquist, who re-started third on the grid after a caution for debris, went around both Owens and Mason Zeigler for the lead which he stretched out over the final laps of the race. Zeigler finished in second with Friday night's winner at Tri-City Speedway, Earl Pearson Jr. earning another podium finish for the weekend by coming home in third. Will Vaught led the home-state contingent with a fourth-place finish and Owens rounded out the top five. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane, Bloomquist stated that there were so many people to thank as he reached his milestone 600th career victory. "It seems like it's been a few years since we got number 500 at Brownstown. It's basically been me and Cody Mallory the last few years. We put in so many hours in the shop. It was a good race for the fans. They may have finally got the track to where it's right up there with the best in the country. We are going to keep working hard and maybe we can get to 700 someday." Zeigler was pleased with his second podium finish of the month as the Pennsylvania driver maintained his lead in the rookie-of-the-year chase. "We keep knocking on the door for a win. I can't thank my wife enough, she is pregnant and going up and down the road with us, and we enjoy it. I want to thank Brian and Buck. I want to than JLE Industries, without them I couldn't run up and down the road." Pearson advanced from his fifth starting spot to finish third. "We got into traffic and it was good battle with Zeigler. I hope we put on a good show for the fans. I had some people here tonight from Jacksonville and I hope they enjoyed the show as well. Thanks to Ronnie and Terri Stuckey and all of my crew, it was another good points night."

  24. Bloomquist wins LOLMDS Grassy Smith Memorial at Cherokee GAFFNEY, S.C. (July 6, 2018) - Scott Bloomquist wheeled his way into Victory Lane for the fifth time this season during the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, 20th Annual Grassy Smith Memorial, at Cherokee Speedway. Bloomquist took the lead on lap 31 from Josh Richards and then held off a charging Brandon Overton in the final laps to score his 599th career victory. Overton came home in second followed by Josh Richards, Don O'Neal, and Dennis Erb Jr. Hudson O'Neal led the opening lap from his outside front-row starting spot. Richards took over the point on the second lap and then led until Bloomquist forged ahead on lap 31. In Lucas Oil Victory Lane, Blomquist was complimentary of the track conditions and the enormous crowd on hand. "We were good on the restarts and that helped. This is probably the best shape I have ever seen this track in. We could run low, middle, or the top. We went to the top there towards the end and I think that helped us out a lot. The top was the place to be especially getting around those lapped cars." Overton was pleased with his podium finish. "I can't thank Billy Franklin enough. Without him I wouldn't be here. As the race went on we got stronger. That was a heck of a race up front there. I thought maybe I could catch Scott [Bloomquist] there at the end. He changed his line and that was the line I was more comfortable with coming up thru there. All-in-all it was a good race and we look forward to heading to Smoky Mountain tomorrow night." Richards, piloting the Best Performance Motorsports, Colt Firearms, Rocket, commented on his third-place finish. "Congratulations to Scott [Bloomquist] on the win. We had a real good race car. We are running more consistent now. Hudson was good early and then we got the lead. I tried to hold them off for as long a possible. Those cautions kind of hurt me a little because we had some good momentum built up" The winner's Sweet-Bloomquist car is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by: New Direction Ag, Reece Monument Company, CatSpot, Sweet Manufacturing, Sorbera Chiropractic, Penske Shocks, Valvoline, Crossfit by Overton, Petroff Towing, and Horton Coal.

  25. Don O'Neal Goes Back-to-Back in Ohio HARTFORD, OH (July 2, 2018) - Don O'Neal made it back-to-back triumphs in Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series action in Ohio, winning the Steel Valley 50 on Monday night at Sharon Speedway. O'Neal took the lead on lap 14 from Mason Zeigler, who finished in second. Zeigler chased down O'Neal in the final laps but came up short in his bid for his first win of the season. Last year's winner, Josh Richards, finished in third. Current series point leader Jonathan Davenport crossed the line in fourth. O'Neal's Clint Bowyer Racing teammate Darrell Lanigan finished in fifth. Zeigler was looking for a clean sweep of racing activities as he set the Miller Welders Overall Fast Time and won his heat race to earn the pole starting position in the 50-lap main event. Zeigler took the lead at the start of the race. For the first 13 laps Zeigler held off Earl Pearson Jr., Davenport, and O'Neal for the top spot until O'Neal forged ahead on lap 14. The winner's Clint Bowyer Racing, Club 29 Race Car is powered by a Clements Racing Engine and sponsored by: Peak Antifreeze and Coolant, I-Racing.com, Crawford Outdoor, Cometic Gasket, Penske Shocks, Sunoco Race Fuels, and Clint Bowyer Autoplex. "It's pretty cool to equal Clint now in wins this year. Hopefully I will get a lot more than him by the end of the year," said a smiling O'Neal during his 45th appearance in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. "My hat is off to this Peak car, we have been great the last two nights. It's all because of my crew that I am winning races right now. This crew works their tails off to get it done." "Thanks to everybody at Clint Bowyer Racing. I hope we keep this thing rolling. It feels good to run well, especially after Portsmouth where we tore up a bunch of stuff. We got up early yesterday to get everything fixed, and it all paid off after last night," said O'Neal, who won the previous nights' LOLMDS race at Mansfield, OH. Zeigler earned his first podium finish of the year and was pleased with his performance. "Near the end of the race I got held up and wasn't quite able to catch Don [O'Neal]. He was better than us. I was just hanging on for a while tonight and wasn't expecting to begin catching him late in the race. He just had a better car and we were a second-place car and that's exactly where we ended up. We needed a good run and that's what we ended up with," said the driver of the JLE Industries, Rocket Chassis. Richards was trying to repeat his 2017 series win at the historic track. "The race was pretty good for the most part. We just have to get a little better. Don has been great. Those guys over there have done a great job the last few nights. They have got something figured out." Completing the top ten were Bobby Pierce, Earl Pearson, Jr., Tim McCreadie, Jimmy Owens, and Mike Maresca.
