Scott Bloomquist Tops Cherokee Speedway for 599th Career Win
Tri City Speedway and Lucas Oil Speedway LOLMDS Action Up Next

Mooresburg, Tennessee (07/09/18) – Scott Bloomquist tallied up career win #599 on Friday night at Cherokee Speedway (Gaffney, South Carolina) behind the wheel of his Reece Monuments #0 New Direction Ag/ Sweet-Bloomquist Race Car/ Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model.

Scott scored his eighth win of the season after surging forward from the seventh-starting spot to score the $12,000 payday in the 20th annual Grassy Smith Memorial with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS).

"We were good on the restarts and that helped," Bloomquist noted. "This is probably the best shape I have ever seen this track in. We could run low, middle, or the top. We went to the top there towards the end and I think that helped us out a lot. The top was the place to be especially getting around those lapped cars. I want to thank everyone who supports me on this racecar."

Thirty drivers took part in the event at the historic clay oval, and via a runner-up finish in his heat race, Scott earned the seventh-starting position for the 50-lap feature.

Scott methodically worked his way through the field before taking the lead from Josh Richards on lap 31. He held off a hard-charging Brandon Overton in the closing laps to get the win.

Josh Richards, Don O'Neal, and Dennis Erb Jr. completed the Top-5 finishers.

The triple header weekend was reduced to the single event after Fayetteville Motor Speedway fell victim to rain on Thursday and Smoky Mountain Speedway was rained out on Saturday.

Scott is currently third in the latest LOLMDS standings. Full results from the event are available at .

The upcoming weekend – July 13-14 – will see Team Zero pursuing the LOLMDS to Illinois and Missouri. Action opens on Friday night with the Napa Know How 50 at Tri City Speedway (Pontoon Beach, Illinois) before moving to Lucas Oil Speedway (Wheatland, Missouri) on Saturday night for the annual Diamond Nationals Both events will pay $12,000 to the winner.

Kent Robinson Races to First-Career MARS Triumph
Oakshade Raceway Hell Tour Double Shot this Weekend

Bloomington, Indiana (07/09/18) – Kent Robinson registered a career first on Saturday night at Indiana’s Brownstown Speedway. The pilot of the JB’s Disposal Services #7r MB Customs/ Jay Dickens Racing Engine Super Late Model raced to his first-career Mid America Racing Series (MARS) feature win.

Robinson received $5,000 for the victory plus a $500 bonus for being a first-time series winner.

“"Once I got to the lead, I kind of just tried to set a pace," Robinson said. "But you can't (be conservative); if you try to slow down at all it messes up and you get out of your rhythm. So, I had to run hard. It's a demanding racetrack. It looks smooth top to bottom, which it is, but this place, the way it's shaped and the way the race cars are now, you've just got to be elbows up 100 percent of the time. Everything worked out and we were able to get our first win of 2018."

Kent’s racing weekend began on Friday evening, when he was one of 30 DIRTcar Summer Nationals entries registered at Farmer City Raceway (Farmer City, Illinois) for the 16th round of the tour.

After laying down the second-fastest time in his qualifying group, Kent landed a runner-up finish in his heat race behind Shannon Babb, which locked him into the sixth-starting position for the $10,000-to-win A-Main. Breaking into the Top-5, Kent gained two spots in the finale to finish fourth behind Billy Moyer, Brian Shirley, and Jason Feger with Tim Manville crossing the line in fifth.

Saturday night brought Robinson to Brownstown Speedway (Brownstown, Indiana) for the Mid America Racing Series (MARS) sanctioned Born Free 40. In a field of 27 Super Late Models, Robinson secured his spot into the A-Main with a heat race victory.

Rolling off third for the feature, Kent used the high side to blast into the lead on an early-race restart. He would go on to pace the field for the remaining 37 circuits to pick up his first win of the season and a $5,000 payday.

He also received a $500 bonus for being a first-time MARS winner.

Devin Gilpin, Tanner English, Steve Casebolt, and Shelby Miles completed the Top-5 finishers in the 40-lap affair.

The team will trek to Ohio this weekend – July 13-14 – to compete in the final Hell Tour events of the 2018 season. A doubleheader is set for Oakshade Raceway (Wauseon, Ohio). A $5,000 prize is up for grabs on Friday night with a $10,000 winner’s check on the line for Saturday night’s finale. In 2017 Kent claimed the top prize in the Saturday night finale.

Logan Roberson Ends Fourth of July Weekend with a Bang
Virginia Driver Bags Eighth Win of 2018

Waynesboro, Virginia (07/09/18) –
Logan Roberson’s extended holiday weekend started on a less-than-favorable note as the team battled more bad luck. However, on the back end of the three-day swing Roberson got things back on track to claim his eighth win of 2018 in his Wynbridge Inc. #17 BTS Towing Service/ XR1 Rocket Chassis Late Model.

The victory came on Saturday night at Virginia’s Winchester Speedway.

“We started the weekend by getting crashed out of two events, and I just thought to myself “Man when are we going to catch a break’,” Roberson noted. “We didn’t get down though and were able to wrap things up with a win on Saturday night at Winchester Speedway. I honestly feel like we have a winning car just about every time we hit the track, we just need a little luck on our side.”

Tuesday night found Logan Roberson in action at Potomac Speedway (Budds Creek, Maryland), where he was competing in a field of 15 Rush Crate Late Model entries. Earning the third-starting position for the A-Main via preliminary events, Roberson and another car made contact on the opening lap. The ensuing damage from the contact ended Logan’s night early.

The following night at Beckley Motorsports Park (Beckley, West Virginia) Logan was pulling double duty between the Crate Late Model and Super Late Model divisions. He rolled off the feature grid in the fourth-starting position for the FASTRAK Racing Series-sanctioned Crate Late Model feature. Roberson quickly worked his way forward in the feature and was battling for the lead, when contact again ended his night.

The Super Late Model A-Main found Logan starting 11th on the grid. Despite being underpowered with a crate engine he was still able to pass five cars in the finale to finish sixth.

On Saturday Logan returned to action at Winchester Speedway (Winchester, Virginia), where he was powering his Wells Custom Jeep #17 entry in a field of 27 Rush Crate Late Models. Rolling off second for the A-Main, Roberson jumped into the lead on the drop of the green flag and held off hard-charging Mike Franklin throughout the 20-lap feature to pick up his eighth win of the season.

Franklin, Jakob Piper, Tanner Kerr, and Transtan Stoner completed the Top-5 finishers.

This Saturday Roberson will head back to Hagerstown Speedway (Hagerstown, Maryland) to compete in a Weekly Racing Series Event at the ½-mile oval.

Ricky Weiss Enjoys Two-Win Weekend

Headingly, Manitoba, Canada (07/09/18) – Make it an even dozen. That’s how many wins that Ricky Weiss has now accumulated in 2018 behind the wheel of his Derrick’s Sandblasting #7w Sweet-Bloomquist Race Car/ Vic Hill Race Engine Late Model.

Over the weekend Weiss visited Victory Lane at Manitoba’s Red River Co-op Speedway and North Dakota’s River Cities Speedway. He added an 11th-place finish with the World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman Late Model Series.

“I was hoping for three wins on the weekend, but we were a little off in the feature at Deer Creek Speedway on Saturday night,” Weiss said. “Even at that, we had a great weekend, and I’m really proud of our team. Things are about to get really busy for us with a lot of big races on the schedule over the next month. Hopefully we can knock down some more five-figure paydays in some of these major events.”

Ricky Weiss was one of 11 WISSOTA Super Late Models on hand at Red River Co-op Speedway (Winnipeg, Manitoba) on Thursday evening, where he was competing in the regular night of racing. Passing three cars in his heat race, Weiss reeled in a runner-up finish behind Mike Martin, which positioned him eighth on the starting grid for the feature.

Outrunning sixth-starting Mike Balcaen, Ricky Weiss streaked to his 11th win of the season in the 20-lapper, beating Balcaen, Shane Edginton, Walt Morris, and Shane Holden to the finish line.

On Friday night at River Cities Speedway (Grand Forks, North Dakota), Weiss charged to an 8-lap heat race victory from the fifth-starting spot. Earning the pole position for the A-Main, Ricky carefully navigated his way through lap-traffic in the final laps to capture his 11th win of the season over Mike Balcaen, Brad Seng, Ryan Corbett, and Joey Pederson.

The following night Weiss stopped at Deer Creek Speedway (Spring Valley, Minnesota) to do battle in the 39th annual Gopher 50. In a field of 30 World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series entries, Ricky secured his spot into the $10,000-to-win A-Main with a third-place finish in his heat. Falling just shy of a Top-10 finish, Ricky Weiss dropped two spots in the 50-lapper to log an 11th-place finish.

The upcoming weekend – July 12-14 – will find Weiss again taking part in a trio of events. Action opens on Thursday night at Red River Co-op Speedway with a Weekly Racing Series Event. Friday and Saturday will see the team hooking horns with the World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman Late Model Series in pair of $10,000-to-win events at River Cities Speedway (Grand Forks, North Dakota) and Ogilvie Raceway (Ogilvie, Minnesota).
