2013results_6-21.jpg   GAFFNEY, SC (June 21, 2013) – Hometown driver Chris Madden led all the way on Friday night to win the Grassy Smith Memorial at Cherokee Speedway. Madden took home $10,000 for his third career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory. Madden had tough competition early from Brent Dixon and Chris Ferguson until those two drivers experienced problems. The defending race winner, Steve Francis finished second followed by Dennis Erb Jr., Don O’Neal, and Dale McDowell.   “It feels great to win here at Cherokee, it has been a while. The car was super tonight, we had a few problems there in traffic, but overall, after that last caution, I could drive it anywhere on the track. I have a lot of friends here tonight. My wife and kids left for vacation, I will join them tomorrow,” said the winner afterwards.   Madden battled with Ferguson and Dixon for the first several circuits. Dixon got by Ferguson on lap 16 and then pursued Madden for the lead. Dixon and Ferguson were able to stay close to Madden as the race for the lead began to heat up as the trio got into lapped traffic.   Dixon nearly took the lead from Madden before a caution came out as the two split a lapped car. Madden then slipped in turn two drifting up the track on the restart and again Dixon nearly gained the lead. Dixon held second until three laps remained when he slowed suddenly bringing out the final caution of the race.   Madden then cruised on for the victory after Dixon was through for the night. “I have to thank Clements Racing Engines, Bloomquist Race Cars, Hamrick’s of Gaffney, Henderson Amusement, KC Transport and all of my other great sponsors for making this possible, the track was real good tonight it had two distinct grooves and I hope the fans enjoyed the show.”   Francis and Erb, who battled for fourth and fifth for most of the last half of the race, were the beneficiaries after Dixon left the race, but neither driver had anything for Madden in the final laps. Last year’s Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Rookie of the Year, Jonathan Davenport was running third when he lost his fuel cell on lap 42 bringing out a red flag.   Completing the top ten were Jared Landers, Earl Pearson Jr., John Blankenship, Jimmy Owens and Chris Ferguson. In preliminary action, Steve Shaver set the overall time (Group A) amongst the 27 entrants, with a lap of 15.021 seconds. Casey Roberts set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 15.073 seconds. Chris Madden, Chris Ferguson, and Brent Dixon won their respective heat races. Tim Allen won the B-Main.    The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will round out the weekend in the Blue Ridge Mountains at Wythe Raceway in Rural Retreat, VA on Saturday, June 22nd. The event will feature RED BUCK Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and the 50-Lap $10,000-to-win “Blue Ridge 50”.

SWAINSBORO, GA (June 20, 2013) – Dennis Erb Jr. led the final 17 laps, and went on to win the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event on Thursday night at Swainsboro Raceway. Erb’s fourth win of the season was worth $10,000.  Earl Pearson Jr. led the first 32 laps until Erb passed him on the high-side.  Pearson finished second followed by Jared Landers, Don O’Neal, and Steve Francis.

“It’s our first time here; the car was good whether we ran low or high. I was setting him (Pearson) up for four or five laps and finally went into turn three and the car stuck, enabling me to finally get by Earl.  It’s been a great year for us so far, this if our fourth Lucas Oil win! We aren’t worried about the points right now, we just want to win races,” said Erb, who was joined by Crew Chief, Heather Lyne, in Lucas Oil Victory Lane.

“It was a really good race for the lead there early on between us, Earl, and Jared. The track was really good after they worked on it during the break.  I have to thank my sponsors: J&L Scrap Metal Metals, JR McBride Leasing, Bloomquist Race Cars, and Kuntz and Company Motors".

Pearson, who was looking for his second series win of the year, said afterwards, “We really wanted to win this race; we had a lot of friends and family here tonight. The car was strong all night long; we will take this finish in the Lucas Oil Products, MAVTV Longhorn.”

Landers was looking for a clean sweep of the evening’s racing activities after setting fast time and winning his heat. Landers was in hunt for most of the race.  “We are knocking on the door for a win, last week we ran strong in Mississippi, so we are going to move onto Cherokee tomorrow night. We’ve won there before, so we should feel real comfortable racing there.”

Completing the top ten were Eddie Carrier Jr., Casey Roberts, Jimmy Owens, Jeff Smith, and John Blankenship.

In preliminary action, Jared Landers set the overall time (Group B) amongst the 19 entrants, with a lap of 14.069 seconds. Earl Pearson Jr. set the fastest time in Group A with a time of 14.072 seconds. Jared Landers, Earl Pearson Jr., and Steve Francis won their respective heat races.

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will get back underway tomorrow night. On Friday, June 21st, the series will make its only stop in the Carolinas at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, SC. Rounding out the weekend, the series heads into the Blue Ridge Mountains to Wythe Raceway in Rural Retreat, VA on Saturday, June 22nd.

2013results_6-15.jpg

COLUMBUS, MS (June 15, 2013) - Mike Marlar overtook race leader, Don O'Neal with nine laps to go to take the $20,000 to win "Clash at the Mag" Presented by the Columbus Convention and Visitors Bureau on Saturday Night at Magnolia Motor Speedway. Marlar's first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season was hard earned as a caution with 12 laps to go set up a great finish.

Marlar, in his first weekend piloting a Bloomquist Race Car led to the checkers holding off O'Neal and John Blankenship for his fifth career LOLMDS victory. Point's leader, Jimmy Owens, who started 12th, came home in fourth followed by 17th starting, Randy Weaver.

"When I saw the caution come out, I got down in some dry dirt on the bottom of the track, and then I had to clean my tires off really good for the restart," said Marlar. "It was good to have one more shot at it there at the end, I lined up beside Blankenship for the restart, and my car took off really well up top, and it only took us a few laps to get by O'Neal. They had an awesome race track here tonight, we have always enjoyed coming down here to Mississippi to race, and they have a lot of great fans here."

"I really wish Norman Bryson could've be here tonight! He is on a mission trip in Honduras. I am still getting used to this new car, it turns differently than what I am used to driving. I also want to thank the Lucas Oil Series for the tire rule this weekend, we've finally gotten used to it. It saved us a bunch of money to come down here."

"I have to thank all my great sponsors, Convenient Lube, Midwest Sheet Metal, Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, Currin Construction, VP, Clements Racing Engines and Keyser."

O'Neal looked like the car to beat all night as he withstood challenges from Marlar and Blankenship for the first half of the race. O'Neal who won this race last year was trying to end a streak of bad luck in the LOLMDS where he had not finished the last two events. The caution with 12 laps remaining while O'Neal had built up a good lead over Blankenship and Marlar set up a finish that O'Neal did not want to see.

"No we didn't need that caution, our car was good all weekend, to run 100 laps here tonight, we thought tire wear was going to be a factor, but it was not, congrats to Mikey on the win, the way the last few weeks had went we needed a good finish and we got it," said the driver of the Optima Batteries/MasterSbilt House Car Chevrolet.

Blankenship, who continues to cut into Jimmy Owen's point's leader, had another solid finish. ""We didn't need that caution either, we were slowly catching Don, I don't know if I could have ever passed though, the track was real racy all night, my car was better on the bottom, his (O'Neal) car was better getting into the corners, we were a tick better off the turns, it would have been real interesting in those final laps if not for the caution," said the driver of the Coal World's Energy, Rocket Chassis.

Completing the top ten were Billy Moyer, Jared Landers, Billy Moyer, Jr., Chris Wall and Steve Francis.

In preliminary action, Don O'Neal set the overall time (Group A) amongst the 46 entrants, with a lap of 14.077 seconds. Steve Francis set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 14.223 seconds. Don O'Neal, David Breazeale, John Blankenship, and Mike Marlar won their respective heat races. Randy Weaver and Eric Cooley won their respective B-Mains.

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will be making three stops next weekend, beginning on Thursday, June 20th, at Swainsboro Raceway in Swainsboro, GA. On Friday, June 21st, the series will make its only stop in the Carolinas at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, SC. Rounding out the weekend, the series heads into the Blue Ridge Mountains to Wythe Raceway in Rural Retreat, VA on Saturday, June 22nd. All three events will feature RED BUCK Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and 50-Lap $10,000-to-win main events.

COLUMBUS, MS (June 14, 2013) – David Breazeale and Don O’Neal will start on the front row Saturday Night for the $20,000 to win “Clash at the Mag” at Magnolia Motor Speedway. Mike Marlar and John Blankenship were also heat race winners will start in the second row for the 100-lap main event. The four heat race winners redrew for their starting spots after the completion of the night’s race program.   Defending race winner, O’Neal, was the RED BUCK fastest qualifier amongst the 46 entrants. He took the lead at the start of the first heat and fought off an early race challenge from Jared Landers. O’Neal pulled away from Landers in the last half of the 10-lap event to take the win. He drove the Optima Batteries/MasterSbilt House Car. Landers took second followed by Billy Moyer, Jr. and Brian Rickman. Rickman’s brother Rick was running in the fourth and final transfer spot when he lost an engine near the end of the race.   The second heat was a tight battle throughout the entire10 laps, between David Breazeale and Chris Wall. The two drivers ran door to door with Wall pulling even with Breazeale several times during the race. Wall tried one last effort coming off of turn four on the final lap, but fell just short of the win. Breazeale was driving the L&D Trucking, MasterSbilt Chevrolet. Hall of Famer, Billy Moyer withstood a race-long, side-by-side duel with fellow Arkansas driver, Jack Sullivan to grab the third spot.   John Blankenship, who has won two out of the last three Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series events, kept Steve Francis at bay the entire 10 laps of heat number three in the Coal World’s Energy, Rocket Chassis Chevrolet to win the heat. Francis stayed close for most of the race, closing the gap on Blankenship near the end of the 10-lap event. Scott Bloomquist came home third followed by Bub McCool, who was guest driving in one of Leon Henderson’s cars.   The fourth and final heat saw Mike Marlar, driving a Bloomquist Race Car take the lead at the start and win going away. It was the first race for Marlar in a Bloomquist car that was just recently purchased from John Blankenship. Earl Pearson Jr. took the second spot followed by current points leader Jimmy Owens and Eddie Carrier, Jr., who was making his first-ever appearance at the track. In preliminary action, Don O’Neal set the overall time (Group 46) amongst the 46 entrants, with a lap of 14.077 seconds. Steve Francis set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 14.223 seconds. Don O’Neal, David Breazeale, John Blankenship, and Mike Marlar won their respective heat races.   The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will be back in action tomorrow night, Saturday, June 15th, to close-out the Clash at the Mag at Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, MS.

2013results_5-31.jpg   TAZEWELL, TN (May 31, 2013) – John Blankenship took home his first ever win at Tazewell Speedway on Friday Night capturing the Toyota Knoxville 50. Blankenship picked up his second Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of 2013 after taking over the lead on lap nine, when race leader Scott Bloomquist went pitside. Blankenship then held off several challenges from Jimmy Owens as he pulled away at the end. Owens nursed a smoking car home in second followed by Earl Pearson Jr., Dennis Erb Jr. and Steve Francis.   “Yes that was a tough race, Francis got me on the restart and then we were finally able to make it stick. I saw Jimmy’s nose a couple of times, I got a little excited, but we kept at it and it feels good to win so close to our race shop in Knoxville,” said the winner. “I am glad that Bobby’s (Pierce) ok, I saw Scott (Bloomquist) slide in there, he must have gotten a lot of damage, because I saw him pull out of the race.”   Blankenship inherited the lead with Owens, following closely in second. Blankenship and Owens put on a terrific battle for the lead for several circuits with Owens actually being credited with leading lap 20. Blankenship regained the top spot a lap later and went on to lead the rest of the way. Owens started fading in the final ten laps as smoke was pouring out of his car.   “I have to thank all of my sponsors, Coal, Todd Case Trucking, Bear Cove Village, VP, Integra, Cornett Racing Engines and Rocket Chassis. My crew has been outstanding lately; we came into this season looking to win the championship and with a win tonight it sure helps! Two wins out of the last three, so we hope to keep the momentum going at Florence tomorrow night, that’s a track we need to improve our performance at.”   Owens, with his second place finish, maintained his points lead. “We were just hanging on there at the end. I don’t know if it was an oil leak or what, fortunately we were far enough ahead of those other guys, but we will go through the car and get ready for Florence. The track was racy tonight, there must have been a full-moon or something, and I want to thank all the fans for coming out tonight.”   Completing the top ten were Eddie Carrier Jr., Billy Ogle, Jr., Jared Landers, Brad Neat and Billy Moyer, Jr.In preliminary action, Scott Bloomquist set the overall time (Group A) amongst the 21 entrants, with a lap of 10.966 seconds. Jeff Wolfenbarger set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 11.109 seconds. Scott Bloomquist, Chris Madden, and Steve Francis won their respective heat races.   The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will return to action tomorrow night, Saturday, June 1st, for the annual Ralph Latham Memorial at Florence Speedway in Florence, KY. The event will be packed with RED BUCK Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and the 50-Lap main event. The event will pay $800 to start the feature, and $10,000 to win.
