ABERDEEN, S.D. (July 16, 2019) - Josh Richards stormed to the victory in the 3rd annual Bullet Sportswear Shootout on Tuesday night at Brown County Speedway.
 
Richards started fifth and powered to the lead ahead of Brandon Sheppard on lap 35 en-route to claim his second Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season.
 
Tim McCreadie climbed from his eleventh starting position to finish second as he passed Stormy Scott for the runner-up position in the final laps. Scott recorded his best career LOLMDS finish by taking third at the checkers. Sheppard held on to finish fourth and took Jonathan Davenport took fifth.
 
Sheppard was in control of the race in the early going, but Richards quickly made his way from the inside of row number three to wrestle the second spot from Scott. Sheppard and Richards then duked it out for the lead with Richards passing Sheppard through the middle of the racetrack with fifteen laps remaining.
 
Richards had to withstand one last caution flag with eleven laps remaining, but once the race resumed Richards went on uncontested for the 27th time in his LOLMDS career, which is fifth all-time in series history.
 
"It feels good to get back to Lucas Oil Victory Lane," said the 31-year-old West Virginia native. We have had a fast car for most of the year, just a lot of bad luck has hit us. We had two runner-up finishes at Portsmouth and Tyler County. We haven't run here that much in the past. I got the lead from Brandon [Sheppard] by rolling through the middle."   
Runner-up Tim McCreadie, commented: "We had that incident in the heat race which set us back. We qualified well and then we had to go to the tail. The car was real maneuverable tonight. From where we started, we are pleased. Congrats to Josh, he was strong there especially at the end of the race."
 
Scott continues to show improvement in his maiden season with the series. "We have had a real good car the last few weeks. My crew continues to work and work on this thing and they have got it the best it's been all year. This has been a tough year, but a learning one. A lot of these tracks I have never run on before. We have been here once before in a modified. If we can keep the good finishes going hopefully, we can knock out a win before the year ends."
 
The winner's Clint Bowyer Racing, Rocket Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by: iRacing.com, Peak Antifreeze and Coolant, Ford Performance, DeKalb Seeds, BlueAg, Sunoco Race Fuels, and Integra.

Davenport Dashes to Diamond Nationals Finale

WHEATLAND, Mo. (July 14, 2019) - Jonathan Davenport picked up his second-career CMH Diamond Nationals - Presented by Super Clean on Sunday night at the Lucas Oil Speedway.
 
It was not easy for the defending Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion as he had to hold off a hard-charging Mike Marlar to pick up the $15,000 victory. Davenport's only other win in the annual July event was in 2015.
 
Marlar managed to pass Davenport for the lead as the two came out of turn two on lap 52 but a caution for Tyler Erb negated the pass for the top spot. Davenport opened up a couple of car lengths advantage over Marlar on the restart. Marlar closed the gap in the final two laps, but came up just short at the finish line.   
Shanon Buckingham started alongside Marlar in row number five and went on for another impressive run for the second night in a row as he captured the third finishing position. Tim McCreadie, who led the first ten laps of the race, finished in fourth followed by Billy Moyer.
 
Davenport and McCreadie started on the front row. McCreadie got the jump on Davenport and took the early lead. Davenport passed McCreadie for the lead on lap 11 and held a comfortable lead for a large portion of the race as McCreadie held the second spot.
 
As the checkers grew closer, Marlar started to make his move by taking the second spot away from McCreadie on lap 45. Marlar then tracked down Davenport but lost all momentum, after clearing Davenport just before the caution for Erb came out. Davenport led the last seven laps to record his ninth series win of 2019.
 
"The track started to clean up at the end we were trying to move around," said the 35-year-old Georgia native. "We were trying to find a line that would work. My line kept going away at the top, so I moved back to the bottom. I guess that caution saved us. Mike [Marlar] has been really good here lately. He has been really consistent. We finally got some speed back in this thing."
 
"Steve Martin is here from Nutrien Ag Solutions," Davenport added. "We have had a heck of a week so far. I want to thank my crew Jason, Tyler, and Matt. They made this car a whole lot better for the feature. We just all put our heads together and we got the results we wanted here tonight. I would like to get another championship for Lance Landers Motorsports."
 
"We would have had the pass of the night," said Marlar who recorded another strong finish with the series. "I am not going to whine about it. I got paid to drive a race car tonight so things aren't so bad. I really enjoy coming out here. It is such an awesome facility. It is always a great crowd here. There's a lot of electricity in the air. We had an awesome weekend."
 
Buckingham who is one of 11 drivers to win an LOLMDS race this season had his best ever finish at Lucas Oil Speedway. "This place is super nice. How could you not like this place? For whatever reason this track just fits my driving style. My crew worked themselves to death to get us a podium finish here tonight. Those cautions killed me, if we could have had the last 19 laps all green, I think we would have been up there challenging for the win."
 
The winner's Lance Landers Motorsports-owned, Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and is sponsored by: Nutrien Ag Solutions, ASC Warranty, Penske Racing Shocks, Valvoline, Mega Plumbing of the Carolinas, Spartan Mowers, and Hawkeye Trucks.
 
Completing the top ten were Josh Richards, Scott Bloomquist, Stormy Scott, Will Vaught, and Devin Moran.

Jimmy Owens Rules Diamond Nationals Opener

 
Owens Goes Back-to-Back with Diamond Nationals Victory
(HeathLawsonPhotos.com)

 
 
WHEATLAND, Mo. (July 13, 2019) - Jimmy Owens continues his mastery of Lucas Oil Speedway by capturing the first night of the CMH Diamond Nationals - Presented by Super Clean on Saturday night.
 
In a race that saw three different leaders, Owens fought off several challenges from Earl Pearson Jr. to secure his second straight Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory and his fourth-career Diamond Nationals. Saturday night's $15,000-to-win event marked Owens' 63rd LOLMDS win.
 
Scott Bloomquist; the defending CMH Diamond Nationals winner; started from the pole and led the first 10 laps until Owens charged to the lead after starting fifth. Pearson moved by Bloomquist on lap 20 using the top groove and within just a few laps caught the front-running Owens.
 
Owens and Pearson then dueled side-by-side for several laps as the two went back-and-forth for the top spot. Owens eventually pulled away from Pearson in heavy lapped traffic and he went on the record his ninth career win at Lucas Oil Speedway.
 
For the second night in a row, Pearson ran second to Owens. Mike Marlar edged out Bloomquist in the waning laps to secure the third spot. Bloomquist was fourth, with current LOLMDS point leader Jonathan Davenport coming home in fifth after starting in 13th.
 
"We are rolling right now," Owens said. "This is a big win for us! My car owner Leon Ramirez is here. My crew has worked their tails off in the last week. I didn't want to see any cautions. We are still struggling on restarts. It'll be awesome to get to back here tomorrow night and race. The crew is pumped up. It's a great feeling to get back to victory lane at Lucas Oil Speedway."
 
"We couldn't get off the corner," commented Pearson. "Everybody knows that Jimmy is so good here. He has won countless times here before. We tried to run with him for 12 to 15 laps. He could move around a lot better than us. We finished second to Jimmy last night and again here tonight. We'll come back tomorrow night and give it another shot."
 
Marlar continued his streak of solid finishes with the LOLMDS by coming home in third. "We changed some stuff on the car before the feature. It was a fun track to race on tonight. We went with something out of the ordinary and it worked. Congrats to Jimmy on the win, he deserves this win. It was good to race against Scott [Bloomquist] again, and it's good to see him back. He and I battled the whole race."
 
The winner's Leon Ramirez-owned, Rocket Chassis is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and is sponsored by: Rhino Ag, Boomtest Well Service, Reece Monument Company, Tommy Pope Construction, FK Rod Ends, Sunoco Race Fuels, Integra Shocks, Red Line Oil, and Midwest Sheet Metal.
 
Completing the top ten were Shanon Buckingham, Billy Moyer, Jesse Stovall, Rick Eckert, and Hudson O'Neal.

Jimmy Owens Battles with Josh Richards at Tri-City Speedway
(HeathLawsonPhotos.com)

 
 
GRANITE CITY, Ill. (July 12, 2019) - Jimmy Owens fought off challenges from both Shannon Babb and Josh Richards to win the NAPA Know How 50 - Presented by Schoenfeld Headers on Friday night at Tri-City Speedway.
 
Owens earned his first-ever win at the Kevin and Tammy Gundaker-promoted facility. It was Owens' second Lucas Oil win of the season and the 62nd of his career for the 3-time national champion.
 
Owens held the point for the first 11 laps of the race until Babb forged ahead for a lap. Owens and Babb went back-and-forth until just past the half-way mark of the race. Babb held the second spot until he suddenly slowed on the 32nd lap and retired from the race.
 
Richards picked up the challenge for the lead as he pulled even with Owens on several occasions, but never managed to take the top spot. Earl Pearson Jr. charged by Richards to take the runner-up position on the final lap. Pearson and Richards joined Owens on the podium as Stormy Scott recorded his best career series finish by taking fourth ahead of 23rd starting Devin Moran, rounding out the top five.
 
"I want to thank all of my crew, my car owner Leon Ramirez and his family for giving me this opportunity to drive their car. Thanks to the fans for coming I hope they enjoyed the show. This will give us a lot of momentum heading to Wheatland tomorrow night. We have been leading a lot this year and things have happened. We had a good car last night. We made a few tweaks for tonight and everything went our way."
 
Pearson topped off a spirited run with his last lap pass of Richards. "I got too tight around the bottom, so I went to the top. I could run right through the middle and the car wasn't so tight. To come home second after starting 15th,we worked hard to get there. I really love this track; it's been good to us in the past. It races so good."
 
Richards, who came into the weekend with back-to-back second place finishes was pleased with his third-place run. "Last night we got into the tire barrier and it cost us a good finish. I felt like tonight I should have moved up sooner. Jimmy had a good car. I felt like I could have got him, but he was just better tonight."
 
The winner's Leon Ramirez-owned, Rocket Chassis is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by: Rhino Ag, Boomtest Well Service, Reece Monument Company, Tommy Pope Construction, FK Rod Ends, Red Line Oil, Sunoco Race Fuels, and Midwest Sheet Metal.
 
Completing the top ten were Tim McCreadie, Michael Norris, Gordy Gundaker, Scott Bloomquist, and Hudson O'Neal.

Tyler Erb Does it Again at Tri-City


Tyler Erb Claims Second Consecutive Lucas Oil Victory
(HeathLawsonPhotos.com)

 
 
GRANITE CITY, Ill. (July 11, 2019) - Tyler Erb emerged victorious after battling Jimmy Owens and Mike Marlar to win his fifth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event of the season on Thursday night at Tri-City Speedway.
 
The Hoker Trucking Best in the Business 50 - Presented by Schoenfeld Headers was also Erb's second consecutive Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory. Tim McCreadie came on strong to finish third just ahead of Owens and Earl Pearson Jr.
 
Erb started the day by setting fast time, then went on to earn the PFC Brakes Pole Award for the main event. Owens grabbed the early lead and held the point for the first 22 laps of the race. The next six laps saw a back-and-forth race for the lead between Owens and Erb. Erb took the lead for the first time on lap 23, but Owens fought back to regain the top spot. The two raced side-by-side with Erb regaining the lead on the 30th circuit.
 
Marlar took over the second spot on lap 39 after he and Owens had battled side-by-side for several circuits. A caution came out with five laps to go, which gave Marlar one more opportunity to sneak by Erb. On the restart Erb used the clean air in front of him to open up a slight lead, and went on to cross 3/4 of a second ahead of Marlar at the finish line for his sixth career LOLMDS victory.
 
"I really didn't want to see that last caution because I had gotten into a rhythm," said Erb. "I was kind of kicking myself when Jimmy got back by me for the lead. I knew when Mikey was behind me that things were going to be tough. I could hear Jimmy under me and then the same thing with Mikey. I just kind of let it go for broke in the last four laps. About a month ago I was in the same position and I wasn't going to let what happened last time, happen again."
 
With the win, the 22-year-old Texan not only keeps his points lead in the Rookie-of-the-Year chase
but also cut into point leader Jonathan Davenport's championship point lead. Davenport finished 18th after pulling off the track due to heavy damage to his racecar.
 
"That was a pretty exciting race! Thank you to Jimmy and Mikey for racing me clean. We are really looking forward to racing again here tomorrow night. I really like this place. They do a great job preparing it. You can really move around all over it."
 
For Marlar, the runner-up finish continued his strong run of podium finishes since the first of June in the LOLMDS. "This was an awesome race-track tonight, we could run anywhere on it. I ran the top, but I felt the car working better on the bottom. I have always enjoyed coming here, but I have never had much success here. Glad to come here tonight and get the monkey off of our back."
 
McCreadie stayed in the top five and grabbed the third spot at the finish. "This was a good run. It's Phillip's [Crew Chief Phillip Snellen] birthday today. We are still working on a lot of things and we are getting closer. We started with a new shock company for the team and they had been out of racing for a long time, but we keep making strides and hopefully we can get a win soon."
 
The winner's Eric and Kelly Brock-owned, Best Performance Motorsports, Rocket Chassis is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and is sponsored by: Industrial Resourcing Group, Roberts Bee Company, New Point Lighting and Design, Bazell Race Fuels, Sunoco, Franklin Enterprises, Valvoline, Keyser, and KBC Graphix.
 
Completing the top ten were Devin Moran, Chris Simpson, Hudson O'Neal, Scott Bloomquist, and Stormy Scott.

Tyler Erb Back in Lucas Oil Victory Lane

 

MIDDLEBOURNE, W.Va. (July 5, 2019) - For the first time since February, Tyler Erb returned to Lucas Oil Victory Lane on Friday night as he wired the field in the 25th annual Topless 50 at Tyler County Speedway.
 
Erb became the tenth different winner in as many visits by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series at Tyler County Speedway. The victory didn't come easy, as podium finishers Josh Richards and Devin Moran charged after Erb the entire 50-lap distance.
 
Moran and Erb led the field to green with Erb taking the lead on the initial lap. There was a tight battle the entire distance for second as three different drivers held that position during the race. Chris Ferguson, Moran, and Richards all had a turn in the runner-up position behind Erb.
 
Richards cleared Moran on lap 42, then setting his sights on Erb who was battling lapped traffic. Richards closed on Erb, but the 22-year-old made his move around a lapped car with two-to go, and that allowed him to open up enough distance to cross the finish line as the winner for his first ever victory at Tyler County.
 
Richards took second just ahead of Moran, with Chris Ferguson and Tim McCreadie rounding out the top five.
 
"I am super-pumped!" exclaimed Erb in Victory Lane. "We have a super-fast racecar right now. This is the best car I have ever driven. It feels like a year since we won a race. This is one of my favorite tracks. We haven't been here a lot, because it's a long way from Texas."
 
"I wanted to move up higher in turns one and two; that's what got me the lead on Devin. It's hard to move up when you can see those guys below you. I was getting sideways into turn three and I could almost see the entire field behind me. This just shows how good of a team we have. We put in the work to win and it paid off tonight," said Erb, who currently leads the LOLMDS Rookie-of-the-Year point standings over Moran.
 
Richards was looking to win in front of his home state fans but was happy with his second-place finish. "Man, I sure wanted to win here tonight. I love coming here. I am glad we get to come here twice a year now. I had a lot of family and friends here tonight. We went with a little different right rear tire and it took me a while to get rolling up top. I knew with Tyler up front it was going to be hard to catch him."
 
Moran sat on the pole for the start of the main event and earned a podium finish. "I got close a few times. It feels good to get back on the podium. Tonight, we learned from our mistakes from last night. If we keep running up front, I feel like we can get a couple of wins here soon."

Marlar Conquers Independence 50 at Portsmouth

PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (July 4, 2019) - Mike Marlar ran away with the Independence 50 on Thursday night at Portsmouth Raceway Park - earning his third Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season.
 
At the drop of the green flag, Marlar sprinted to a comfortable lead and held the point for the entire race. Marlar had to withstand a 5-lap shootout to the finish with second-place running Josh Richards and Jimmy Owens after a lap-45 caution.
 
Richards moved into the second spot on lap four and tried to stay within striking distance of Marlar, but at stages during the race Marlar held a more than a straightaway advantage over Richards. Owens, who started sixth moved into third past Hudson O'Neal on lap 33 as he tried to track down Richards inside the last ten laps of the race before settling for the third spot. O'Neal and Jonathan Davenport completed the top five.
 
In Lucas Oil Victory Lane for twelfth time in his career, Marlar commented that his third heat race win over his good friend Owens is what set the stage to get the victory tonight. "I want to thank Jimmy for running me clean in that heat race. We went back-and-forth for most of the race. It was probably one of the best heat races you will ever see. Jimmy could be standing here right now if he would've won that race. He had a really good race car tonight as well."
 
"These Rocket XR1 chassis are stout. This track has been kind of tough on us for a while now, but it feels good to win in front of this crowd. The track crew did a great job with the track today. It was fast all over, it was probably the best I have seen this place. This car could go anywhere I drove it on the track. Thanks to the entire crew for their help. My wife Stacy is from Ohio and a lot of her family is here this weekend."
 
Owens was elated with the win. "We have been coming here a long time and I would say it's the best I have seen this place. I had a good race with Hudson and then I thought I could catch Josh then that caution with five to go came out. I am not sure if it helped me or not. But we hung in there and got another good finish."
 
Richards continued his string of strong finishes at Portsmouth. "This place has been really good to me over the past two years. The track was in really good shape tonight. We had the car set-up for the top and it really paid off. Congratulations to Mikey on the win, he was just too good tonight for anybody. We have been running really well and I hope the momentum carries over to Tyler County tomorrow. It is one of my top five favorite tracks. I will have a lot of friend and family there."

The winner's Ronnie Delk-owned, Rocket Chassis is powered by a Cornett Racing Engine and sponsored by: Marathon Oil, Mark Martin Timber and Farms. Franklin Enterprises, RS Equipment Sales and Rentals, Integra Shocks, and VP Fuels.
 
Completing the top ten were Zack Dohm, Tyler Erb, Tim McCreadie, Shanon Buckingham, and Michael Norris.
