28th Annual Pittsburgher 100 up next for LOLMDS

 

WAYCROSS, GA (October 4, 2016) - The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series is en route to Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. A band of the nation's elite dirt late model drivers will tackle the monster half-mile oval in the 28th Annual Pittsburgher 100 - this Friday-Saturday, October 7th-8th.

The 28th Annual Pittsburgher 100 will kick off on Friday, October 7th as the LOLMDS take center stage for Miller Welders Time Trials and Heat Races. The RUSH Late Models and Sportsman will also compete in their preliminary events on Friday night. Saturday's activities will include a Dirt Racing Outreach Service from 3:30 - 4:15pm - followed by a Driver Autograph Session from 4:30 - 5:15pm. The on-track action on Saturday night will include B-Mains and the 100-lap, $20,000-to-win main event for the LOLMDS, along with feature events for the RUSH Late Models and Sportsman.

In 2015, Scott Bloomquist became the first five-time winner of the Pittsburgher 100. Bloomquist took the lead from Jonathan Davenport on lap 85 and then held off Davenport for the $20,000 payday. Trailing Bloomquist and Davenport to the finish line were Don O'Neal, Jimmy Owens, and Dennis Erb Jr.

Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway (PPMS) is one of Western Pennsylvania's premier racing facilities, operated by Miley Motor Sports since 1989. The half-mile oval is sure to produce some of the most high-speed, door-to-door, edge of your seat racing action this season. PPMS is located just off the Noblestown Exit of PA Route 22, minutes from downtown Pittsburgh, Weirton, WV, Steubenville, OH, & Robinson Mall.

With his victory at Rome International Speedway on Sunday night, Scott Bloomquist clinched the 2016 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Championship. Jonathan Davenport is second in latest championship standings. The battle for third thru sixth continues to heat up - with Tim McCreadie, Dennis Erb Jr., Brandon Sheppard, and Don O'Neal - separated by just 135-points.
