2013results_7-17.jpg   WEBSTER CITY, IA (July 17, 2013) – In his inaugural appearance at the historic Hamilton County Speedway, Jason Feger wins his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event. In front of a capacity crowd, Feger cruised to the victory after passing Steve Francis on lap 15 and pulled away in the final laps to become this season’s 14th different winner on the LOLMDS tour. Francis finished second, followed by Earl Pearson Jr., Don O’Neal, and Brian Birkhofer. “It feels great to finally get a Lucas Oil Series win. We have won in a lot of different series, but to get this one is really special. To beat such a talented field of drivers like Francis, [Don] O’Neal, [Billy] Moyer, and [Scott] Bloomquist, we couldn’t ask for a better night as a team.  After having a little bad luck recently, we were due for a good finish. We have been getting on each other’s nerves recently, but the crew has worked their tails off, and this win should take the pressure off of us,” stated Feger in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. “When I saw them watering the topside of the track before the feature, I was really salivating at the chance to run up there!  The car was fast all night, starting from the time we unloaded it. I had confidence that we could get to the front early and stay there. Steve [Francis] and I diced through traffic, I tried a couple of different lines, and was finally able to get by him on the outside,” continued a jubilant Feger. He is driver of the Cheap Cars, Box Seat Productions, Rhyne Competition Engines, Bob Pierce Race Cars entry. Francis was at the helm of the Bowyer Dirt Motorsports, Georgia Boot-sponsored Barry Wright Race Cars #15. He scored his second runner-up finish in a row and narrowed the series points lead to a mere 20 points behind John Blankenship. “Congratulations to Jason on the win! I was hoping the track would stay racy all night. The first part of the race we could run anywhere on the track, then it started taking some rubber, and we couldn’t make up any ground on Feger after that. Thanks to everyone on both Bowyer Dirt Motorsports teams for working so well together,” stated Francis. Earl Pearson Jr. finished a solid third place finish on Wednesday Night. His Longhorn Chassis Chevrolet is owned by Bobby Labonte Racing, and is sponsored by Lucas Oil Products and MAVTV American Real. “We got here late tonight, but we were able to set fast time in Group A and win our heat. The car was strong for the entire night. Feger and Francis had a good race in front of me and we were just a tick off from them, but we will certainly take this finish and head to Nebraska!” Completing the top ten were Scott Bloomquist, Chad Simpson, John Blankenship, Jimmy Owens, and Billy Moyer. In preliminary action, Steve Francis set the overall fast time (Group B) amongst the 29 entrants, with a lap of 19.459 seconds. Earl Pearson Jr. set the fastest time in Group A with a time of 19.655 seconds. Earl Pearson Jr., Brian Birkhofer, Steve Francis, and Jason Feger won their respective heat races. Wendell Wallace won the B-Main. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will round out its July Midwest swing with the Silver Dollar Nationals at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, NE. The event will include a practice session on Thursday, July 18. There will be two rounds of heats on Friday night, July 19.

2013results_7-16.jpg   KANSAS CITY, KS (July 16, 2013) – Hall-of-Famer, Billy Moyer, took over the lead on lap 19 and went on to win the first-ever Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Model Series event on Tuesday Night at Lakeside Speedway. Moyer pocketed $10,000, in scoring his first LOLMDS win of the season. He also became the 13th different winner this year.   Steve Francis started 18th, and came roaring through the field to finish second. He was followed by Don O’Neal, Jared Landers, and John Blankenship, who started 15th.   Landers grabbed the lead at the start of the 50-lap race and held the point until Moyer passed him with 19 laps scored. Landers remained in second until his Clint Bowyer teammate, Francis, took the spot away from him on lap 27.   Moyer held a sizable lead over Francis until a caution came out with 20 laps to go. Francis tried to overhaul Moyer, closing to within a car-length with five laps left. Moyer was able to use lap-traffic to his advantage and was able to hold off Francis at the checkers.   “This has been a rough year for us so far,” said Moyer, who registered his fifth overall win of the year. “We had a rough weekend at Wheatland, so we went home and worked our rear ends off to get this car ready for tonight! I have to give a special thanks to Sparks Racing, as well.”   “I have to thank all my sponsors. There are several that have been with me for a long time. I’d also like to thank all my product sponsors as well, without any of them we couldn’t do this,” said the driver of the Henderson Motorsports, Banner Valley Hauling, Midwest Sheet Metal, L&D Trucking, Clements Racing Engines, Moyer Circle Chevrolet.   Francis, who was coming off his first series win of the season last Friday Night at Tri-City (IL) Speedway nearly, came home with the victory again tonight. “We wanted to win so badly for Clint here tonight, especially with it being his home track. We had to dig deep after qualifying. I didn’t think we could ever recover from that. I have to thank Barry and Lance Wright, they had to work on two cars tonight and I hope Clint is pleased with our efforts,” said the driver of the Georgia Boot, Barry Wright Race Cars #15.   O’Neal ran second, for the first 15 laps of the race, brought his Optima Batteries, MasterSbilt house-car home in third. “We had a good car all night, we switched to the bigger Jay Dickens engine and it really performed well. We hung in there with Landers early on, and then the car started to push a little, but in the last few laps, we got back going and was catching Francis.”   Completing the top ten were Tyler Reddick, Mike Marlar, Ryan Gustin, Terry Phillips, and Eddie Carrier Jr. In preliminary action, Jared Landers set the overall time (Group B) amongst the 34 entrants, with a lap of 17.011 seconds. Tyler Reddick set the fastest time in Group A with a time of 17.356 seconds. Tony Jackson Jr., Tommy Weder, Jared Landers, and Don O’Neal won their respective heat races. Eddie Carrier Jr. and Steve Francis won their respective B-Mains.    The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will continue its July Midwest swing this week.

2013results_7-13.jpg   WHEATLAND, MO (July 13, 2013) – John Blankenship dazzled the impressive crowd on-hand at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO tonight in the 7th Annual CMH “Diamond Nationals” co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil MLRA. Blankenship took the point’s lead from Jimmy Owens last night, and came into tonight’s event a-top the points standings for the first time in his career. He and Owens had a fierce battle for the lead, until lap 28, when Blankenship finally put some distance between himself and the “Newport Nightmare”. Blankenship went unchallenged the rest of the way in the race that had no cautions.  

Blankenship’s third LOLMDS victory of the season also marked his first-ever at the track. He took home $10,000 for the win and put an end to Owens’ reign over the facility. Owens entered the event having won six out of the last seven LOLMDS races at Lucas Oil Speedway, including 3 Show-Me 100’s.  

Trailing Blankenship and Owens to the finish line were Tony Jackson, Jr., Earl Pearson Jr., and Steve Francis.   “I don’t know what to say,” said the winner in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. “To beat Jimmy here is just unbelievable! He has been so strong here; I didn’t think anyone was ever going to beat him here. Our car tonight, once we got going really was fast, to catch Jimmy and then to pass him says a lot about our team and this Rocket Chassis. We have come so close to winning here before, and to finally do it tonight in front of this big crowd, is just tremendous!”  

Blankenship started fifth and wrestled the second position away from Dennis Erb Jr. by lap 8. “Dennis and I had a good race going early on. Once we broke free from him, I was finally able to get Jimmy in my vision, he must have had a straightaway lead or better on us by the time we got to second, we slowly tracked him down, and once we got into traffic that was our chance.”

“What a way to bring a new sponsor into the sport! GeneratorWorld.com has come on board with us, and along with all of our other great sponsors: Todd Case Trucking, Coal, Bear Cove Village, VP, and Integra. We have also been alternating back-and-forth between the Cornett and Jay Dickens Engines. Tonight we had the Cornett in the car and both engines have been really strong!”   Blankenship forged ahead of Owens for the lead the first time on lap 23. But Owens came back and led the next three circuits, until Blankenship shot by him for good on lap 28 and was never able to seriously challenge the 32-year-old racer for the remainder of the race.   

“Congrats to John on the win! I am just as excited for him as he is,” said Owens afterwards. “We have been struggling over the last month, and with last night’s parts failure, we didn’t even get to turn a lap in the feature, but his team works hard! John has gotten so much better as a driver over the last few years, it’s scary for the rest of the competition what he could become,” said the driver of the Reece Monument Company, Cornett Racing Engines, Bloomquist Ford.  

Jackson had his best career LOLMDS finish with a third place finish. Jackson was outside of the top five for the first half of the race, but got going late in the 50-lapper. “I wish we had as good of a car early in the race as we had later on! To have a podium finish against these guys lets us know how far our race team has come in the last year,” said the driver of the RLB Financial, Rocket Chassis, Chevrolet. Jackson came into the race as winner in seven events since Memorial Day Weekend.

Completing the top ten were Dennis Erb Jr., Wendell Wallace, Don O’Neal, Jesse Stovall, and Terry Phillips.

In preliminary action, Ryan Gustin set the overall time (Group A) amongst the 38 entrants, with a lap of 16.347 seconds. Jimmy Owens set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 16.398 seconds. Eric Turner, Will Vaught, Jimmy Owens, and Dennis Erb Jr. won their respective heat races. Mark Dotson and Eddie Carrier Jr. won their respective B-Mains. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will continue its July Midwest swing next week. On Tuesday, July 16th, the series will make its first appearance at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, KS.

2013results_7-12.jpg   PONTOOON BEACH, IL (July 12, 2013) – Steve Francis won his first feature of the season on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series tonight at Tri-City Speedway.  Francis started third in the $10,000 to win “Battle at the Beach”. He took the lead on lap nine and was challenged all the way to the checkers by John Blankenship, who finished second. Trailing Francis and Blankenship to the finish were Chris Simpson, Don O’Neal, and Billy Moyer.

Francis; claimed six series wins last year; recorded his 12th career LOLMDS victory. He also became the 12th different winner on the tour in 2013.  Blankenship, in the Coal World’s Energy Rocket stayed within striking distance until the end, and came up just short of his third win of the year.  With his second place finish, Blankenship took over the series points lead from Jimmy Owens, who failed to make a lap in the main event due to transmission issues. “The team worked really hard for this win,” said Francis, who registered his first ever win at Tri-City.  “I told Kevin (Gundaker) earlier that I liked the old half-mile better, but not now! We had a meeting this week with Clint (Bowyer) and decided we wanted to finish the season strong, this is a very good start to that goal!” Blankenship bolted to the lead and led the first eight circuits until Francis took to the outside and dashed by him.  The race was slowed by three caution flags and remained close all the way with Blankenship cutting the lead on the final lap to less than one-car length.  “Congrats to Steve, he drove a heck of a race! We switched cars before the night, and went with the car that had the smaller motor in it, Tom (Buckingham) made the right call on that and it nearly paid off!  I didn’t even know Owens did not run a lap,” said Blankenship who leads the series points for the first time in his career. Francis thanked a multitude of people in Lucas Oil Victory Lane and hopes the win can vault the team to bigger things.  “Our goal every year is to win the championship. I have to thank all the crew, along with Lance and Barry Wright, Clint Bowyer, and everybody back at the shop. It’s a big win for my sponsors: Georgia Boot, Peak Motor Oil, Cometic Gasket, Toyota, VP, Clements Racing Engines, and of course Barry Wright Race Cars.” Simpson, who was the runner-up in the Show-Me 100 back in May at Lucas Oil Speedway came home in another solid run.  “Congrats to Steve for his win! John and I battled hard for second; we never touched the whole race! It’s great to able to compete with these guys, they do it on a weekly basis, we are getting our program to where we are a threat to win each time out,” said the driver of the Simpson Farms, Five Star Shop Service, MB Customs Chevrolet. Completing the top ten were Brian Birkhofer, Billy Moyer Jr., Randy Korte, Jason Feger, and Tyler Reddick. In preliminary action, Billy Laycock set the overall time (Group A) amongst the 33 entrants, with a lap of 15.506 seconds. Michael Kloos set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 15.774 seconds. John Blankenship, Steve Francis, Chris Simpson, and Jimmy Owens won their respective heat races. Craig Smith and Tim Manville won their respective B-Mains.  The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will be back in action tomorrow night, July 13th. The series will head to the “Diamond of the Dirt Tracks” Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO for the annual running of the “CMH Diamond Nationals”.

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.
