WAVERLY, OH (May 14, 2016) – Scott Bloomquist took the lead on lap 48 from Brandon Sheppard and then held off the field in a three-lap dash to the finish to win in the Buckeye Nationals Saturday Night at Atomic Speedway. Bloomquist earned $50,000 for his fourth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season.

Jonathan Davenport came home in second and maintains his series points lead. Josh Richards was third after starting 15th. In his first appearance in ten years at Atomic, Chris Madden was fourth, and 12th-starting Dennis Erb Jr. edged out Steve Francis at the finish line for fifth.

“We’re pretty satisfied with this car, to say the least. We’ve only run this car twice. Those guys [Sheppard and Davenport]; they drive hard and they make you work for it,” said the winner, who took his third LOLMDS victory in the last four events.

An exciting first half of the race saw Sheppard lead the initial lap. Madden then took over the point until Bloomquist grabbed the lead on lap seven. Bloomquist then held the point until the crowd came to its feet when Sheppard darted out front on lap 16.

Sheppard and Bloomquist then set a torrid pace, pulling away from third place running Madden, and the rest of the pack. Jimmy Owens got up to fourth and was challenging Madden for third when mechanical issues struck, ending his night.

Sheppard maintained the lead until Bloomquist was able to maneuver around him on lap 48. Bloomquist pulled away from Sheppard and the rest of the field. Sheppard’s night ended up in smoke on lap 72 when he brought out the last caution of the race. Bloomquist held on over the last three circuits to score the 66th win of his LOLMDS career.

When asked about the last three laps of green flag racing after the caution, Bloomquist responded. “Well I can’t really say what I was thinking because when I saw his [Davenport’s] number on the scoreboard in second I knew I had to really get tough and not make any mistakes, and we didn’t.”

Bloomquist; in his Reece Monument Company/Crop Production Services/Petroff Towing/Sorbera Chiropractic/Horton Coal/Mark Martin Honda/Durham-powered Sweet-Bloomquist entry; kept Davenport at bay in the final three circuits to take his second crown jewel win of the season.

Davenport had won the last two LOLMDS events at Atomic Speedway and just could not muster enough to challenge Bloomquist.

“We went a little softer on tires, and I don’t know if it was a gamble. Congrats to Scott on the win. We have two wins and a second here. I am so thankful for Kevin and Lee Roy Rumley, and Brian Liverman. Thanks to Troy Baird of Baird Transport, Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas, Elite Concrete, and thanks to all the fans for coming out in this cold and rainy weather.”

Richards has four LOLMDS wins this season and came home in third place. “I just got the team in a hole yesterday in the heat race. I think I just used my stuff up getting to the front. We went a little softer than Jonathan and some others. I thought I might have something at the end for those guys, but we didn’t,” said the driver of the Mark Richards Racing/Valvoline/Seubert Calf Ranches/Rocket House Car.

Completing the top ten were Steve Francis, Eddie Carrier Jr., Earl Pearson Jr., Tim McCreadie and Darrell Lanigan.

In preliminary action, Brandon Sheppard set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 49 entrants, with a lap of 14.047 seconds. Steve Francis set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 14.493 seconds. Brandon Sheppard, Chris Madden, Scott Bloomquist, Steve Francis, Jimmy Owens and Darrell Lanigan won their respective heat races. Eric Wells and Mason Zeigler won their respective B-Mains. Gregg Satterlee won the Ten-Not-In Non-Qualifiers Race.
