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.

2013results_5-25.jpg   WHEATLAND, MO (May 25, 2013) – Jimmy Owens’ dominance of Lucas Oil Speedway continued on Saturday Night as the veteran driver notched his third consecutive Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 Presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com. Owens took the lead on lap 11 from Scott Bloomquist and was virtually unchallenged the rest of the way, picking up the $30,000 for his win in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and Lucas Oil Midwest Racing Association co-sanctioned event.   Owens now has won six races at the track since 2010. Chris Simpson came home in second; his best career finish in a crown-jewel event.  Dennis Erb, Jr. charged from 20th to take third. Brady Smith also made his way to a top five finish, grabbing fourth after starting 22nd. Chad Simpson would round out the top five, climbing from 24th to fifth at the finish.   “I have to thank Lucas Oil, Forrest Lucas, everybody with the series and this speedway, this is an awesome facility and to win this race three years in a row, I don’t know what to say!” said the 2-time and reigning series champion. “Scott (Bloomquist) and I had a really good race for the lead early on, and once I cleared him I pretty much felt like if the car held together it would be our race.”   Owens had to survive a first lap melee in turn two when several drivers got together, forcing a restart. “I thought we were in big trouble there, it was little slimy and Don (O’Neal) got sideways. It wasn’t anyone’s fault, but fortunately we had some quarter-panel and door damage. Nothing got into the tires or suspension,” said the winner, who maintains the LOLMDS points lead after his fourth series win of 2013.   “I want to thank Mike Reece, Reece Monument Company, Gantte Appraisals, Sunoco, Red Line Oil, Ohlins, Cornett Racing Engines, Bloomquist Race Cars and Chris Davis from Midwest Sheet Metal. I want to especially thank Chris for what he does not only for our team, but racing in general.”   Chris Simpson, who was also involved in that first lap incident, maintained his position at the start and he steadily climbed through the field. Simpson took the second spot from Bloomquist inside of 20 laps to go, and with a final caution with only nine laps to go, he took one last shot at his first career crown jewel win. “I thought maybe I had a chance there at the end, but he got out of turn two better than me and that was all she wrote. We are happy with this finish, to finish second in this magnitude of a race means a lot to me and my race team,” said the driver of the Five Star Shop Service, MB Customs Chevrolet.   Erb, coming off of heartbreak last week at Batesville, needed a good finish. “Yes we really needed this run tonight, we had bad luck last week while leading at Batesville. It feels good to run up front with these guys, and to come home in third is awesome.” Erb, who started on the outside of the tenth row, quickly moved into to the top ten early on in the race. He kept picking cars off, lap after lap, eventually getting to third place. On the final restart, with nine laps to go, Erb thought his best chance was to take the high side. “He (Simpson) did what had to do, he is a clean racer, I had a run on him and thought I could clear him on the front-stretch, but he shut the door, and from then on I couldn’t build up my momentum.”   Completing the top ten were Steve Francis, Mike Marlar, Tony Jackson, Jr., Scott Bloomquist and Jason Feger.   In preliminary action, Scott Bloomquist set the overall time (Group A) amongst the 72 entrants, with a lap of 14.902 seconds. Eric Jacobsen set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 14.934 seconds. Scott Bloomquist, Tyler Reddick, Jesse Stovall, Jimmy Owens, and Steve Francis their respective heat races. Eric Turner won the LucasOilGear.com Manufacturers’ Dash for Cash. Terry Phillips won the Crawford Supply Race of Champions presented by Traeger Grills.  Jimmy Mars, Dennis Erb Jr., and Billy Moyer won their respective B-Mains Mike Marlar won the Midwest Sheet Metal Show-Me Challenge Non-Qualifiers’ Race.   The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will be back in action from the “Diamond of the Dirt Tracks”, Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO tomorrow night, Saturday May 25th.

2013results_5-18.jpg   LOCUST GROVE, AR (May 18, 2013) – John Blankenship took home the biggest win of his racing career tonight at Batesville Motor Speedway. Blankenship won $20,000 by winning the Second Annual Bad Boy 98 sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, and marked the first series win for him this year. Blankenship pulled away at the end to score a convincing win over Brady Smith, Steve Francis, Billy Moyer and Jimmy Owens.   While Blankenship enjoyed the fruits of the win, Dennis Erb Jr. was left with what could have been. Erb led the first 67 laps of the race until smoke bellowed from his number 28 car forcing him pitside. Erb and Blankenship had put on a side-by-side battle for the top spot for most of the race until that point. Blankenship then ran away with the race as he went unchallenged over the last 30 laps of the event.   “I have to thank all of my crew, Tom Buckingham and everyone else, this is the biggest win we have ever had,” exclaimed Blankenship in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. “That was quite a race for the lead between Dennis and me, and then I saw smoke out of his car and I knew he was in trouble. This Rocket Chassis car has been good all year long, we have been knocking on the door for a big win like this since last year, and tonight it finally happened.”   “The track was really racy tonight,” said the winner afterwards. Blankenship started sixth in the stout field, but first had to withstand a solid challenge from Wendell Wallace early in the race. “Wendell was really good there early on until he had that flat; once he went out, we were able to stay close to Dennis with the caution flags. I have to thank all of my sponsors of course, Coal, Todd Case Trucking, Bear Cove Village, VP Fuels, Integra Shocks, and Cornett Engines.”   Smith, who won last week at LaSalle Speedway, came from seventh as he fought his way to a second finish. “Congrats to John on the win, he was gone there at the end! I couldn’t see him on the track anymore! Our car was tight early on, but as the race wore on, we got a whole lot better. Hey, this has been a solid two weeks for us.

In preliminary action, Eddie Carrier Jr. set the overall Time (Group A) amongst the 38 entrants, with a lap of 13.679 seconds. Randy Korte set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 13.993 seconds. Brady Smith, John Blankenship, Don O’Neal, and Chris Simpson won their respective heat races. Kent Robinson and Brandon Sheppard won their respective B-Mains.    The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will make its next stop at Batesville Motor Speedway in Batesville, AR for the 2nd Annual “Bad Boy 98” next week, from Thursday, May 16th with an Open Practice night and continue on Friday, May 17th, with RED BUCK Time Trials and Heat Races.
