2013results_7-3.jpg   ZANESVILLE, OH (July 3, 2013) – Devin Moran led all 50 laps in a hotly contested Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Budweiser 50 on Wednesday Night at Muskingum County Speedway. The 18-year-old son of Hall of Fame driver, Donnie Moran charged ahead of the pack and delivered a career-best $10,000 victory.    The second-generation racer crossed the finish line to the cheers of the home-track crowd just as his dad flipped in turn number two. The elder Moran escaped the flip uninjured and joined his son in victory lane. Earl Pearson Jr. finished second followed by Doug Drown, Steve Francis, and John Blankenship.   “I can’t believe it, I can’t thank my dad and grandpa enough for all of their support! This is a dream come true to win one of these Lucas Oil races! These guys are the best of the best, and to win here on my home track is super special,” said the youngster in Lucas Oil Victory Lane.    “The car was really good in one and two, but at one point, I thought I had given it away. I hit a rut and it almost took me over the bank in turn four. There were a lot of cautions and it was nerve-wracking, but the car handled so well all night. Hopefully one day we can run this Lucas Oil Series full-time! I have to thank all the fans who came out tonight and survived the rain.”   “I have to thank all my sponsors Custom Cutters, Bazell Race Fuels, Eddie’s Sunoco, Cameron Oil and Gas, Malcuit Engines, and MasterSbilt Race Cars.”   Completing the top ten were Don O’Neal, Eddie Carrier Jr., Jared Landers, Jimmy Owens and Dennis Erb, Jr. In preliminary action, Earl Pearson Jr. set the overall time (Group A) amongst the 35 entrants, with a lap of 15.130 seconds. Doug Drown set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 15.189 seconds. Devin Moran, Steve Francis, Doug Drown, and Jacob Hawkins won their respective heat races. Josh McGuire and Jimmy Owens won their respective B-Mains.    The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will be back in action tomorrow night, Thursday, July 4th, with the “Independence 50” at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, OH. The event will include RED BUCK Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and the 50-Lap, $10,000-to-win main event.

2013results_6-22.jpg   RURAL RETREAT, VA (June 22, 2013) – Four-time Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion Earl Pearson Jr. passed race leader John Blankenship on the white flag lap, to win the Blue Ridge 50 on Saturday night at Wythe Raceway. Pearson pulled away on the final circuit for his second LOLMDS win of the year and the 26th of his career.   Blankenship, the winner a year ago at Wythe came home second followed by Steve Shaver, Jared Landers, and Steve Francis.   “I have to thank all the fans for coming out here tonight at Wythe, this place is packed! I had a second-place car, I didn’t think I could pass John (Blankenship), I just took a different line after the caution and found enough moisture, and I just went for it,” said the driver of the Bobby Labonte Racing, Longhorn Chevrolet.    The frantic last 8 laps of the race was set-up when sixth-place running Don O’Neal slowed with a flat tire. On the restart Blankenship was able to pull away from Pearson. It took Pearson just a few laps to rebound his momentum as he drove his car harder into the turns.   “I don’t know what happened to Davenport there. He was leading and then he slowed, he was probably the car to beat tonight, we are glad that Terry Labonte was here tonight to see, we finished first and third in these Longhorns, so all the work that Kevin Rumley has done on these cars is really paying off.”   Davenport held the lead for the first 19 laps of the race when he suddenly slowed coming off of turn two. His car came to a stop in turn four and had to be pushed back to the pit area.   “My crew has worked their butts off, we thought we were going to get one Thursday night at Swainsboro. It’s been an up-and-down roller-coaster ride this year, but we may finally be on the right track. I have to thank Lucas Oil, MAVTV, Sunoco Race Fuels, CV Products, PRC and Allstar Performance, and of course Kevin and Leroy Rumley for the Chevrolet Horsepower.”   Blankenship, who had a sterling run a year ago in winning at Wythe, looked like he was going to take the victory two years in a row. “I didn’t even know he (Pearson) was there, he came out of no where, the car took off really well after that last caution and I just tried to hit my marks lap-after-lap, but obviously it wasn’t good enough. Congrats to him on the win, we gained some more points tonight on Jimmy (Owens),” said the driver of the Coal World’s Energy Rocket Chevrolet.   Completing the top ten were Eddie Carrier Jr., Chris Ferguson, Jimmy Owens, Dennis Erb Jr., and Ty Dillon. In preliminary action, Jonathan Davenport set the overall time (Group A) amongst the 21 entrants, with a lap of 16.207 seconds. Dale McDowell set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 16.303 seconds. Jonathan Davenport, Dale McDowell, and Earl Pearson Jr. won their respective heat races.   The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series celebrate the Fourth of July in traditional action at Muskingum County Speedway in Zanesville, OH on Wednesday, July 3rd, and Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, OH on Thursday, July 4th. Both events will feature RED BUCK Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and 50-Lap, $10,000-to-win main events.

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.

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.
