IMPERIAL, PA (October 8, 2016) – Josh Richards roared to the lead on lap 25 and never looked back - winning his second career Pittsburgher 100. The victory for his team was worth $20,000 on Saturday night at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway. Richards took over the point from the early pace-setter and new track record holder, Michael Norris.

Richards’ Mark Richards Racing/Valvoline/Seubert Calf Ranches/Durham Race Engines/Rocket Chassis house-car captured his sixth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season over Scott Bloomquist, Gregg Satterlee, Don O’Neal, and Jimmy Owens.

Norris was making his first career LOLMDS start and looked strong early on in the race, but Richards went by him on lap 25. O’Neal then got by Norris for second as Bloomquist - who started tenth - began to make his way to the front.

The 28-year-old Richards held a healthy lead despite several caution flags in the first half of the race. O’Neal and Bloomquist had a terrific side-by-side race for second for several laps, but Bloomquist was finally able to clear O’Neal for the runner-up spot on lap 61.

With no caution flags for the second half of the 100-lap event, Bloomquist constantly cut into Richards’ advantage, but Richards was able to maneuver around traffic and keep enough of distance between him and the current LOLMDS point leader to claim the win.

“It feels good to win this race for a second time. This is my favorite race track. I have said this since I was little. There is nowhere else like it. It’s a great place to race at. The fans are great. Our hearts go out to Mike Farr who passed away last night and to John Flinner for a speedy recovery. We are hoping that John is ok and will get back in a race car soon,” said the winner afterwards.

“I gambled on tires, and I didn’t know how it would turn out. At the end of the race I started to lose it a little. I couldn’t roll through the top like I did earlier in the race. I knew when I saw Scott [Bloomquist] on the board that he would be coming too.”

Bloomquist was looking for an unprecedented sixth Pittsburgher 100 win, but came across the finish line in second. “I had a good car all night. Our Andy Durham Race Engine ran well all night. Thanks to Crop Production Services, Reece Monument, Steve Sorbera Chiropractic, Horton Coal, and the rest of our sponsors who make this possible.”

Satterlee started 14th and thrilled his home-state fans with his third place finish for the Satterlee Petroleum/Rocket Chassis. “We didn’t have enough for those two guys up front. From the position we started off, our night turned out well. I got behind when we qualified and made some questionable moves in the heat race. We started too far back. You can’t give these guys that much real estate ahead of you. We changed all four corners on the car after the heat race and it paid off,” said Satterlee who joined Richards and Bloomquist on the podium.

Completing the top ten were Dennis Erb Jr., Tim McCreadie, Earl Pearson Jr., Darrell Lanigan and Michael Norris.

In preliminary action, Michael Norris set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 46 entrants, with a lap of 17.106 seconds. Jon Mollick set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 17.746 seconds. Michael Norris, Josh Richards, Earl Pearson Jr. and Tim McCreadie won their respective heat races. Rick Eckert and Jared Miley won their respective B-Mains.
