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. A win and a second place, we’ll take it, as we head to the Show-Me 100 next weekend.”   Francis, last August’s winner of Batesville’s biggest race, the COMP Cams Topless 100, had a solid finish in third as he held off Billy Moyer and Owens. Owens retook the championship points lead from Don O’Neal, who finished eighth.   Completing the top ten were Scott Bloomquist, Earl Pearson Jr., O’Neal, Eric Jacobsen, and Jack Sullivan. In preliminary action, Earl Pearson Jr. set the overall time (Group A) amongst the 40 entrants, with a lap of 13.679 seconds. Bobby Pierce set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 13.738 seconds. Earl Pearson Jr., Steve Francis, Dennis Erb Jr., and Wendell Wallace won their respective heat races. Jimmy Owens and Billy Moyer Jr. won their respective B-Mains.    The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will be back in action next weekend at the “Diamond of the Dirt Tracks”, Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO with the 21st Annual Lucas Oil “Show-Me 100” presented by Protect the Harvest. Events will get underway on Thursday, May 23rd with a complete show for the Lucas Oil MLRA late models. The LOLMDS will take to the track on Friday, May24th and Saturday, May 25th.

2013results_4-21.jpg   MINERAL WELLS, WV (April 21, 2013) – Eddie Carrier Jr. finally claims his first ever win at West Virginia Motor Speedway, by winning tonight’s event. Carrier took the lead from Brian Birkhofer on lap 33 and held off Josh Richards for his fourth career LOLMDS win. Richards, who brought out the first caution of the race with one lap scored, charged through the field to finish second. Don O’Neal came home third followed by Birkhofer and 13th starting, Jimmy Owens.

“It feels pretty good to finally win here, so close to Rocket Chassis. West Virginia has been my home-state since I moved from Kentucky back in ’02,” said Carrier in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. “To win on this stage, with the caliber of drivers here, they are the best of the best no doubt about it, that’s why this is so special, the car was excellent today from the time we unloaded it out of the trailer.”

Birkhofer took the lead at the start of the 50-lap main event and was in control for most of the first-half of the race until Carrier started to apply pressure. Carrier’s car was better in the long runs as he eventually tracked down Birkhofer. On lap 33, Carrier was able to make the pass on Birkhofer coming off of turn number four.

“I have to thank Carl Grover, he gave me an opportunity to drive his car several years ago, and we have had a great relationship through the years. I want to run this Lucas Oil Series to become a better driver,” said the 42-year-old pilot of the Engines Inc, Integra, VP Fuels, and Grover Racing Engines Ford-powered, Rocket Chassis.

Richards commented in Lucas Oil Victory Lane: “Hats off to Eddie, he drove a great race. We were catching him at the end, but just ran out of laps. I am glad to see a Rocket win here in West Virginia. The track was really good, but on the first lap I just slid there into the guardrail. I thought our night was over, but the crew checked the car out and we came back with a strong finish.”

O’Neal posted a solid third place finish to put himself in a tie with Jimmy Owens for the points lead. “Tonight went way better for us than last night did,” joked O’Neal in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. “The track was really smooth, I was surprised after they reworked it. It was still fast, but our car had the right set-up for a strong run. Congratulations to Eddie on his win!”

Completing the top ten were John Blankenship, Scott Bloomquist, Jared Landers, Jared Hawkins, and Jonathan Davenport. In preliminary action, John Blankenship set the overall Time (Group A) amongst the 32 entrants, with a lap of 17.021 seconds. Vic Coffey set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 17.361 seconds. John Blankenship, Steve Shaver, Brian Birkhofer, and Eddie Carrier Jr. won their respective heat races. Scott Bloomquist and Bobby Pierce won their respective B-Mains. 

After taking the next weekend off, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will kick-off a busy month of May with events at Tri-City Speedway in Pontoon Beach, IL on Friday, May 3rd and Paducah International Raceway in Paducah, KY on Saturday, May 4th.

2013results_4-20.jpg   HAGERSTOWN, MD (April 20, 2013) – Jimmy Owens won his second consecutive Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series sanctioned event Saturday night at Hagerstown Speedway. Owens took the lead on lap five passing Steve Francis and paced the field the rest of the way to become the eighth different winner in eight LOLMDS appearances at Hagerstown Speedway. Earl Pearson Jr. advanced from his seventh starting position to finish second followed by Vic Coffey, Steve Francis and 18th starting, Gregg Satterlee.   Owens commented on his winning car in victory lane. “It’s a new car that we have only run four or five races with it this year. We were a little worried early on this year but we got the kinks worked out of it and it seems to be really fast. We have never really run that well here so to come here tonight and get this win is great for our whole team. The track was racy and we had a good battle with Francis early on before we were able to pull away towards the end”, said Owens, whose victory was his first at the historic half-mile track   Steve Francis would lead the first four circuits, until Owens, who started third passed Francis for the lead on lap five and built a straight away lead at times. Earl Pearson Jr. moved up to second during the early stages of the feature but could not find enough to over-take Owens. Pearson kept within striking distance of Owens as a couple of lapped cars kept Owens from lengthening his lead during the late stages of the event. Pearson closed to a few car lengths of Owens, but his momentum was slowed by a lapped car that prevented him from making a late-race run at Owens.   Pearson, who started seventh, was extremely happy with his second place finish. “Jimmy was dominant here tonight and we really didn’t have anything for him. We were running second to Jimmy in Texas and felt like we had a car to win there until we broke. To come here and get second and show that we have a good car feels good and that will help us in the points,” said the 4-time series champ. “This car was redesigned by Kevin Rumley and really is proving to be something we can build on. I love coming to this place and racing on high speed tracks,” said the driver of the #44 Bobby Labonte Racing, Lucas Oil Products sponsored Longhorn Chassis.   Vic Coffey, who survived a torrid battle for third among five drivers, came home in third place. “We had a real good car tonight. We took a little different line there than most of those guys coming off of turn four that really helped me to get into the top three. That was really a heck of race between all of us, just too bad it wasn’t for the lead. We will take third place and head to West Virginia tomorrow” commented Coffey in his post-race interview.   Finishing sixth through tenth in the final standings were Dan Stone, Steve Shaver, Billy Moyer Jr., John Blankenship, and Eddie Carrier Jr. With his win Saturday night Jimmy Owens took over the top spot in the series championship points standings. Owens leads Don O’Neal by fifteen points.   In preliminary action, Marvin Winters set the overall Time (Group A) amongst the 34 entrants, with a lap of 19.402 seconds. Steve Francis set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 19.551 seconds. Jamie Lathroum, Jimmy Owens, Steve Francis, and Vic Coffey won their respective heat races. DJ Myers and Gregg Satterlee won their respective B-Mains.    Tomorrow Night, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series returns to the “Mountaineer State”, making its return to West Virginia Motor Speedway in Mineral Wells, WV on Sunday, April 21st. The event will pay $10,000-to-win, and will include RED BUCK Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and the 50-Lap main event.
