Traffic would enter the picture with 12 laps to go as Mars was back to a six-car length lead over Birkhofer. The sixth and final caution of the race came out on lap 39 for debris on the racetrack. That would set up an 11-lap shootout with Mars on the point followed by Birkhofer and Bloomquist. On the restart it would take Birkhofer just two laps to take over the lead for the first time in the race.

COLUMBUS, MS (July 15, 2006)- The "Intimagator" Chris Wall of Holden, LA scored his first ever Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win on Saturday Night at the Columbus (MS) Speedway as the 38 year old racer took the lead on third lap of the 50 lap Cliburn Tank Lines 8th Annual James Nickoles Memorial Race presented by the Columbus Convention and Visitors Bureau and then withstood several caution flags to become the 12th different winner on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Tour in '06 as he led the remainder of the race. Wall earned $10,000 for the victory in front of one of the largest crowds in the history of the Johnny Stokes promoted facility. Wall drove his Xtreme Graphics/Stuckey Enterprises/C&M Gator Farm/Gator Trax Boats/GVS Racing/Eagle Motorsports/American Racer Tires/Wall2Wall Performance Engines/MasterSbilt Monte Carlo to his 18th overall win this season. Mike Boland of Cuba, AL also put up an exceptional effort running right with Wall for the entire race as he came home in second in his Boland Performance/Jay Dickens Racing Engines/Rocket GTO with 15th starting Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN passing Earl Pearson, Jr. on the final lap to finish third in his Miller Brothers Coal/Vic Hill Racing Engines/Bloomquist Race Cars Chevrolet as Pearson finished fourth in the Lucas Oil Products/Larry Wallace Racing Engines/MasterSbilt Ford Taurus. Steve Casebolt of Richmond, IN who started 17th on the grid wound up fifth in the Dargie Race Engines/Rocket Ford Taurus. A total of 58 cars were on hand for the event which was also a points race for the Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series. Fellow Alabama drivers Mike Boland and Ronny Lee Hollingsworth would draw the front row from the six heat race winners but it was Kentucky's Brad Neat who would sprint from his third place starting spot to nab the lead as the first lap was being scored. Disaster however would strike Neat on the second go round as he spun coming off of turn number two and came to a halt bringing out the caution flag. With Neat relegated to the tail Boland would inherit the lead with Wall, Don O'Neal, Earl Pearson, Jr. and Donnie Moran your top five at this point. On the restart Wall who started fifth would take the lead from Boland as the pace up front and throughout the field was fast and furious around "The Baddest Bullring in the South." Moran would make a charge taking over third on the fourth circuit with Scott James coming to fourth place. On the sixth lap James and O'Neal would make contact as both drivers would eventually go pit side following their lap six skirmish. On the restart a four car wreck would again slow the action with Wall still holding the point. As the race progressed to green flag action with ten laps in the books it was Wall showing the way with Pearson back in the thick of things taking the runner-up slot just ahead of Boland, Moran and Matt Miller. A caution for debris on lap 12 would again halt the action as Boland would get the advantage over Pearson for second on a lap 13 restart. The race for the lead was extremely exciting as Wall, Boland and Pearson were putting on a show for the huge crowd on hand. Boland and Pearson would run side by side for not only this portion of the race but for most of the half as well. At the halfway mark Wall was still in command with Boland and Pearson in tow. Billy Moyer who had slipped from fourth to 11th in the early running order was now getting it going as he was headed to the front moving into the fourth slot by lap 24 with Scott Bloomquist the previous night's winner at North Alabama hot on his heels. With 20 laps to go Wall would maintain a two car length lead over Boland and Pearson. With Boland and Pearson dueling it out side by side and Moyer and Bloomquist going door to door there was action all over the track. A caution on lap 36 for Eddie Rickman would slow the field for the next to last time. A total of four good green flags would then get scored until the final caution for debris on the track would see the yellow wave for the last time on lap 40. With ten laps to go Wall would again see Boland and Pearson right behind him on the double file restart. A car who really showed strength as the laps wound down was Steve Casebolt. Casebolt who started 17th was hanging tough with Moyer and Bloomquist as he would pass Bloomquist and then Moyer for fourth. With five laps to go Wall was still only one to two car lengths at the most ahead of Boland and Pearson. Boland and Pearson would swap second place lap after lap with Boland scored in second with nine laps to go. The two would still go side by side with Pearson on the low groove and Boland riding the rim of the track. With the five to go signal given it was finally showtime for Boland and Pearson as the question remained could they eventually pass Wall in the closing laps. Boland would shoot off the corners charging to the outside of the middle groove running Wall with Pearson showing his talents on the hub. With the white flag Boland and Pearson would once more give it their all but Wall was just too tough as he would hold on and cross the finish line first for his initial Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory in front of a cheering crowd. Boland who drove a great race as well finished with Bloomquist taking the high side in the last few laps to go by Pearson on the white flag lap to claim third. Pearson would cross the stripe in fourth followed by the strong effort of Casebolt. In victory lane the popular Wall would greet the home area crowd with a fence climbing victory celebration and then told the throng of fans. "Man that was a great race, to outrun Mike and Earl and this great field of drivers is just fantastic." "The car was just great all race long, there were a lot of cautions and we just hung in there and kept our line and you know you can race anywhere on this track and those other guys were giving it their all, but we just had everything right tonight." "I want to thank all the great fans that came out here tonight; I believe they saw a tremendous race." Completing the top ten were Billy Moyer, Donnie Moran, Ronny Lee Hollingsworth, Rick Rickman and Matt Miller. In preliminary action at Columbus Earl Pearson, Jr. would garner the Comp Cams Fast Time for the 58 entrants with a quick lap of 13.93 seconds.

The Mason Racin' Rebel Shock Dyno First B-Main was won by Rob Litton and the Penske Shocks Second B-Main saw David Breazeale victorious.

Billy Moyer, who started ninth had moved to sixth by the fifth lap then went by two more cars a lap later to put his car in fourth. Earl Pearson, Jr. was another car on the move as he was up to fifth challenging Moyer for fourth. With ten laps scored Hollingsworth was still mounting a challenge for the lead pressuring Bloomquist until O'Neal would catch the two frontrunners and pass Hollingsworth for second on lap eight. Bloomquist and O'Neal then would pull away from Hollingsworth as the leading duo would enter traffic by the 10th circuit. O'Neal closed on Bloomquist rapidly as the two encountered some heavy traffic around the racy 3/8ths mile oval. The race for third was heating up as Moyer and Pearson went by Hollingsworth for third and fourth. O'Neal would get within a car length of Bloomquist before the first caution of the race fell on lap 21 for a three car accident in turn four. Then four laps later Tony Morris would bring out the second caution when he stopped in turn three. With 30 laps in the books Bloomquist was holding a three to four car length advantage over O'Neal with Moyer, Pearson and Chris Wall up to fifth place. After 30 laps were complete the third caution was out for Garrett Durrett. This would set up a potential ten lap shootout between Bloomquist and O'Neal. On the final restart of the race Bloomquist would pull away and make it at least seven car lengths over O'Neal with five laps remaining. Meanwhile Moyer and Pearson were fighting it out for third place running side by side as Wall settled in fifth.

With just a few laps remaining Bloomquist was still in control of the race as O'Neal was unable to mount a challenge to him in the final laps as Bloomquist would win by six car lengths. Pearson and Moyer would take their battle to the last lap with Pearson just nipping Moyer at the finish line for third place. Wall in his first ever Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event would take fifth. In victory lane Bloomquist said "the longer my car ran the better it got." "The track was completely different tonight than the last time we were here." "It was a lot slicker and we had to go a lot a harder on tires this time, on the restarts we had to be careful, but it took us a lap or two to get our momentum going and the car was just terrific." Bloomquist's season earnings are now well over the $200,000 mark competing on a very limited schedule than in the past. Completing the top ten were Steve Casebolt, Brad Neat, Jay Blair, Donnie Moran and Matt Miller. In preliminary action Eddie Rickman was the Comp Cams Fast Timer for the 38 car field with a near track record breaking lap of 13.59 seconds. The track record is 13.56 held by Daniel Miller.

ZANESVILLE, OH (July 3, 2006)- Living up to his nickname "Showtime" Vienna, WV's Steve Shaver blasted past three other drivers on a lap 34 restart and then went on to claim the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series "Creno's 50" on Monday Night at the Muskingum County Speedway.  Shaver became the 11th different winner in 2006 on the series tour as he notched his second career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win before a packed house earning $10,000 for the win, his first driving for Sean Cosgrove Racing.  The 42 year old veteran pilot was driving the Waco Gas and Oil/Drywall Systems Inc/United West Virginia Bank/Lakeview Estates/Hershey's Racing Engines/Casey Marshall crew chiefed/Rocket GTO. 11th starting Don O'Neal of Martinsville, IN finished second in the Randall Eller/Independence Lumber Inc/MasterSbilt Monte Carlo followed by series points leader Earl Pearson, Jr. of Jacksonville, FL in the Carlton and Kemp Lamm/Lucas Oil Products/MasterSbilt Ford Taurus.  A solid fourth place finish was turned in by Davey Johnson of Latrobe, PA in the Dale Beitler Racing/Reliable Painting/Rocket GTO with Donnie Moran of Dresden, OH coming from the tail to take fifth in the Custom Cutters/SMS Race Engines/MasterSbilt Monte Carlo.  A total of 54 cars were on hand at the Ronnie Moran promoted facility as the event was held despite a lengthy delay for rain and lightning right before time trials were to begin.   Former Muskingum County track champion Doug Dodd and National Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer, Freddy Smith would make up the front row for the main event with Smith grabbing the early lead right from the start.  It was all Smith early as the "Southern Gentleman" racing in his 40th year of competition was looking for career win #783 on this night.  Dodd would settle into second with a lap scored followed by the third place starting, Shaver, Bart Hartman and Billy Moyer.  With one lap scored veteran Mark Banal would slow in turn four bringing out the first caution of the race.  Earl Pearson, Jr. who started seventh on the grid charged up to fourth by lap two around Moyer, but a lap later the two National Champions would switch spots again with Moyer back into fourth.   With five laps scored it was the high flying Smith on the point with Shaver getting by Dodd for second dropping Dodd to third just ahead of Moyer and Pearson.  An incident involving Josh Richards and Eric Myers slowed the field and then on the restart Corey Conley would stop bringing out the third caution of the event within the first six laps of racing.  After the third caution the restart would see Smith showing the way, but Pearson would be the man on the move exploding past Moyer, Dodd and Shaver on the restart to take second.  Don O'Neal, who started in 11th, was on the move as well picking up the fourth spot by lap seven and then roaring past Shaver to take third a lap later.  The fourth caution for Sonny Conley and D.J. Cline would again slow the pace on lap nine.  On the restart Donnie Moran would get caught up in a tussle heading into turn one and spin his mount.  All the cars avoided Moran's car and he would restart on the back of the pack.   In an action packed event and with ten laps complete Smith was still leading with Pearson, O'Neal, Shaver and 16th starting, Scott James now up to fifth.  Pearson would look for an avenue around Smith and finally found the lead on lap 13.  O'Neal and Smith would then race side by side for three circuits until O'Neal cleared him on lap 17.  With side by side battles all over the track,  Hartman got into the thick of things running side by side with fellow second generation racer James as those two went door to door for several laps with Hartman putting himself into fifth.  Caution number six with 23 laps scored came out for Josh Richards who slowed on the track.   With two laps until the halfway mark Pearson had started to encounter heavy lapped traffic as O'Neal and Smith had closed his advantage. With the caution the track was now clear for Pearson as he would sprint away from O'Neal and Smith on the restart.  The rim riding Hartman would slide off the track in turn four on lap 25 bringing out the yellow flag.  On the restart O'Neal would challenge Pearson for the lead as the top two in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series points would race hard for the lead running within inches of each other.  Smith was closely watching the race for the lead from his seat in third with Shaver quietly in fourth followed by James.  Hartman who was making his way up through the field again ran out of real estate in turn four with 32 circuits scored as the brought out the caution and retired from the event.   After caution number eight Pearson would be on the point with O'Neal and Smith lined up side by side on the restart.  As the cars were rocketing off of turn four to complete lap 33 Smith would take the outside line around O'Neal and he had his sights set on the leader Pearson at the flag stand.  Smith had a run on Pearson and has drifted up the track on the main straightaway there was contact between himself and Smith with Pearson almost ending up into the frontstretch wall and Smith suffering a bent steering rack on his car.  Smith would slow bringing out the final caution of the race as the racing incident would end his night.  With 33 laps in the books Pearson would lead the field on the restart with O'Neal in second.  Shaver, who restarted fourth, would blast around the top of the 3/8ths mile track roaring to the head of the field taking the lead on lap 34.   While Shaver started to build a little bit of an advantage over the field Pearson and O'Neal would crank it up another notch in the race for second place.  O'Neal would pass Pearson for the position on lap 35 and then set his intentions on trying to catch the speedy Shaver.  But Shaver would drive a flawless last part of the race as he would go on to capture his second career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event and his first driving for Sean Cosgrove Racing of Catharpin, VA.  O'Neal would finish second just in front of Pearson with Davey Johnson claiming the fourth spot as Moran, who had come from the tail after an earlier caution flag survived a classic duel with James to take fifth.   In victory lane Shaver was amazed how well his car ran the top side in taking the lead.  "We tried and tried to get to that top groove because I knew we would be good there," said Shaver with steam coming from under the hood after the race.  "On that last restart I jumped up to the cushion and the car just got hooked up there and I drove around those guys, I mean you dream of moves like that and to do that against those guys (Pearson and O'Neal) is tough to do." "I am real happy to get this win for Sean Cosgrove and everybody on the crew, they have worked their tails off all year and they deserve it."  Crew chief Casey Marshall received alot of the accolades as well for the win as the Zanesville, OH native joined Shaver and the rest of his crew in victory lane.   Completing the top ten after James were Dodd, 23rd starting Corey Conley, Richards and Steve Casebolt.   In preliminary action Mike Balzano topped the 54 car field in the Comp Cams Time Trials with a fast lap of 15.786 seconds.  The PBM Performance Product Heat Races were won by Butch McGill, Bart Hartman, Billy Moyer, Freddy Smith, Doug Dodd and Steve Shaver.  The Mason Racin' Rebel Shock Dyno First B-Main went to Keith Barbara and the Penske Shocks Second B-Main was won by Larry Moran.    The K&N Engineering "Clean Pass of the Race" went to race winner Steve Shaver, who went from fourth place to lead on a lap 34 restart.  The K&N Engineering "Clean Pass of the Race" is awarded at each Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event in 2006 and can happen during a heat, consy or main event.   The next Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event will take place on Friday Night, June 14 with a first visit to the North Alabama Speedway in Tuscumbia, AL for a $7,000 to win race followed by a Saturday Night, June 15 first visit to the "Baddest Bullring in the South" the Columbus Speedway in Columbus, MS for the 8th Annual "James Nickoles Memorial" paying $10,000 to win.  The cameras of SPEED will be on hand at Columbus to catch all the exciting Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series action as the event will be shown on a date and time to be announced in the future.   Series officials have also announced an addition to the 2006 racing schedule as the Series will make its first ever appearance at the Rome Speedway in Rome, GA on Friday Night, October 6 for a $10,000 to win national event.  The next night at the Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, GA will be the $15,000 to win 16th Annual Lucas Oil Dixie Shootout.  For more information you can visit www.dixiespeedway.com and www.lucasdirt.com.  Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Race Summary Monday Night, July 3, 2006 Muskingum County Speedway-Zanesville, OH   Comp Cams Fast Qualifier:  Mike Balzano 15.786 seconds   PBM Performance Products First Heat:  (10 Laps-Top 3 Advance):  Butch McGill, Earl Pearson, Jr., Michael England, George Lee, Rick DeLong, Charlie Duncan, Lance Elson, Johnny Boyd, Mike Balzano   PBM Performance Products Second Heat:  (10 Laps-Top 3 Advance):  Bart Hartman, Josh Richards, Davey Johnson, Keith Barbara, Jeff Gress, Shane McLoughlin, Jason Flory, John Mason, Rod Conley   PBM Performance Products Third Heat:  (10 Laps-Top 3 advance):  Billy Moyer, Eric Myers, Steve Casebolt, Eric Jacobsen, Mike Johnson, Norm Aronholt, Bob Moskey, Scott Shelhorn   PBM Performance Products Fourth Heat: (10 Laps-Top 3 Advance):  Freddy Smith, Donnie Moran, Scott James, D.J.

NEW RICHMOND, WI (June 17, 2006)- Defending Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion Earl Pearson, Jr. of Jacksonville, FL withstood challenges from several drivers to win the 8th Annual "Masters" on Saturday Night at the Cedar Lake Speedway.  The $10,000 to win event was co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the World Dirt Racing League.  Pearson, who won this event back in 2004, now joins Wendell Wallace as the only two-time winner of this annual race.  Pearson drove the Carlton and Kemp Lamm owned Lucas Oil Products/Dunn-Benson Ford/K&N Engineering/Sunoco Race Fuels/All-Star Performance/Larry Wallace Race Engines/MasterSbilt Ford Taurus entry to the winners circle after starting in fifth.  Brian Birkhofer of Muscatine, IA was second in the J&J Steel/Pro Power Engines/Rocket Monte Carlo followed by 16th starting Donnie Moran of Dresden, OH in the Custom Cutters/SMS Racing Engines/MasterSbilt Monte Carlo.  Completing the top five were Jimmy Mars of Menomonie, WI in the Deppe Enterprises/T.L. Sinz Plumbing/MasterSbilt Monte Carlo and Darren Miller of Chadwick, IL in the Ideal Ready Mix/Pro Power Engines/Rocket Ford Taurus.  A total of 48 entries were on hand for the event that was delayed for a little over an hour by a rain shower.   The 50 lap event would get underway on a superbly manicured 3/8ths mile race track as Darren Miller would lead the 24 car starting lineup under the green flag rocketing to the point on the opening lap with fellow front row starter Matt Miller taking the second spot.  The first caution of the race came for a slowing Corey Conley on lap three as Conley took his ride to the pit area and was finished for the night.  On the lap four restart Darren Miller would vault to a six car length lead over the new second place car of Dan Schlieper.  With five laps scored it was Darren Miller showing the way followed by Schlieper, Matt Miller, Brian Birkhofer and Earl Pearson, Jr.  Birkhofer would slide by Matt Miller on lap seven to go to fourth and a circuit later Pearson would put Matt Miller another spot down passing him for fourth place.   With Darren Miller holding a somewhat comfortable margin over the field a torrid race for second place on back would continue to heat up as Pearson would pass Birkhofer for third on lap 12 and two circuits later he went around Schlieper for second.  Pearson however was not done as by lap 15 he had caught and passed leader, Darren Miller.  Pearson then started to encounter some lapped traffic by lap 17 as he was setting a blistering pace out front. With 20 laps scored Pearson was well out in front stretching his lead to a ten car length advantage over Darren Miller with Matt Miller now back in the thick of things racing his way back up to third after falling to sixth place.  The second caution of the race would halt Pearson's runaway as Brian Harris topped in turn number four.   On the restart the race would change its complexion as Pearson now with his ten car length erased on the restart would see Darren Miller stay with him as the duo raced side by side for four laps with Pearson just barely holding the lead at the scoring line.  Not only was the race for the lead thrilling for the large crowd on hand, Matt Miller, Don O'Neal and Jimmy Mars were racing three wide for third.  John Anderson would bring out the third caution as he slowed on lap 28.   With the field bunched up again for the restart Pearson would still be showing the way with Darren Miller and Matt Miller behind him doubled up on the restart.  Mars, who started eighth put his car on the bottom of the racy surface and was up to third by lap 30.  With 20 laps to go Pearson had built his lead over Darren Miller back up to ten full lengths and looked to be on his way to an impressive win.  Just before the fourth caution flag of the race for Scott James on lap 35, Darren Miller, Mars, Matt Miller and Birkhofer were putting on a show throwing sliders at each other seemingly every lap.   Not only was the action fast and furious well behind Pearson attention was now being turned to the white #99 entry of Donnie Moran.  Moran who started 16th on the grid was hammer down using the top side of the race track and got into the top five for the first time on lap 36.  Moran then passed Mars for third on lap 37 and two complete laps later he was up to second.  Pearson's huge lead now seemed alot less as Moran was cutting into his lead lap and after lap.  What looked like a smooth trip to victory circle for Pearson was starting to look a little less likely as Moran closed to within two car lengths of Pearson until a caution with five laps to go involving an altercation on the back-straight between Justin Fegers and Kyle Berck as both cars ended up into the wall and out of the race.   Moran's momentum was hurt after the caution because on the restart he had to deal with Birkhofer who now had joined  the race for second and would allow Pearson to open up just enough breathing room in the race for the lead as Moran and Birkhofer went at it door to door in the closing laps.  Birkhofer would slide job Moran with four to go to grab second but Pearson was just enough ahead that it would be Pearson ending up on the victory podium after several drivers had taken their bets shot at him during the race.  Birkhofer would come in second followed by Moran, Mars and Darren Miller.   "Everything went our way tonight," said Pearson after securing his second Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of 2006 extending his points leader over Don O'Neal.  "We had that little shower and the guys here plowed the track up and rolled it back in and it turned out to be a great race track," said the 34 year old racer in the SPEED Channel TV interview afterwards.  The event was taped by SPEED and will be shown at a date and time to be announced in the future.   Completing the top ten were Dan Schlieper, Don O'Neal, Chris Simpson, Matt Miller and Kerry Hansen.   In preliminary action Earl Pearson, Jr. was the Comp Cams Fast Time Award winner with a quick lap of 13.459 seconds.  The PBM Performance Products Heat Races were won by Matt Miller, Darren Miller, Dan Schlieper and Don O'Neal.  The Mason Racin' Rebel Shock Dyno First B-Main was taken by Brady Smith and the Penske Shocks Second B-Main went to Eric Pember.  The K&N Engineering "Clean Pass of the Race" went to Brian Birkhofer for his slide job pass on Donnie Moran with four laps to go to nab the second position at the finish.  The K&N Engineering "Clean Pass of the Race" is awarded at each Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event and can be during a heat, consy or feature event.   Coming up next for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will be a visit to Bill Sawyer's Virginia Motor Speedway in Saluda, VA on Saturday Night, June 24 with a $10,000 to win payday on the line for the winner.  The cameras of SPEED will be on hand to tape the event which will be shown at a date and time to be announced.  Rick Eckert of York, PA won the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event there last year in the series' first ever visit.  For more information you can visit
