Tyler Bruening Banks Back-To-Back LOLMDS Top-10 Finishes
Preps for Busy Stretch of Racing Across Three States

DECORAH, Iowa (07/14/20) – Entering the second half of the 2020 season as a rookie on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS), Tyler Bruening is starting to pick up steam in his Skyline Motorsports No. 16 Bennett Explosives/ Bruening Rock Products/ Capital Race Cars Super Late Model. In fact, in the past two series events he’s come away with Top-10 finishes.

“We knew this year would be a challenge jumping up to a national tour, but we obviously never dreamed we’d destroy a pair of cars early in the year. We were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, but it left us behind the eight ball during the first half of the season,” Bruening shared. “However, there’s no quit in this team, and over the past month we’ve been gaining momentum, and that’s been reflected in our finishes. Honestly, I think we’ve been even better than our finishes have showed but have just battled through flat tires and other challenges.

“I’m looking forward to the next two weeks of racing, and I’m definitely looking forward to getting back to I-80 Speedway for the Silver Dollar Nationals next week. That’s a place we’ve been fast at before, and hopefully we can use that to our advantage.”

Tyler’s weekend of racing began on Friday night at Florence Speedway (Union, Ky.), where he was one of 33 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) entries on hand for the General Tire Summer Sizzler Nationals doubleheader. Recording a runner-up finish in his heat behind Jonathan Davenport, Bruening locked into the fifth-starting position for the $12,000-to-win A-Main. Racing in the Top 10 throughout the 50-lap affair, Bruening notched an eighth-place finish.

Saturday night’s $12,000-to-win finale at the ½-mile oval fell victim to Mother Nature.

On Monday night LOLMDS action continued in Bruening’s home state with a trip to 300 Raceway (Farley, Iowa) for the Truck Country 50. Twenty-seven competitors entered the event, and Tyler finished second in his heat race to once again earn the fifth-starting spot for the 50-lap, $10,000-to-win feature.

Tyler was running in the Top 10 early in the feature, when bad luck bit on lap 18 with a flat tire. He ducked into the pits for fresh rubber and rejoined the tail of the field before rebounding to finish ninth.

Tyler currently sits second in the LOLMDS Rookie of the Year battle and resides 14th in the overall LOLMDS point standings. For full results from this weekend, please visit .

Team 16 now prepares for a busy stretch of racing, which spans July 17-25, and includes six nights of competition in nine days. Action opens on Friday, July 17 with the $12,000-to-win Napa Know How 50 at Illinois’ Tri City Speedway. From there the series travels west to the state-of-the-art Lucas Oil Speedway (Wheatland, Mo.) for a doubleheader of action. On Saturday, July 18 the rescheduled 28th annual Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 takes center stage with a $20,000 top prize. One night later the 14th annual Diamond Nationals posts a $12,000 winner’s check.

The team then enjoys a three-day break before embarking on the 10th annual Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals at Nebraska’s I-80 Speedway. Spanning July 23-25, action opens with the Malvern Bank Go 50 on Thursday, July 23 with a $12,000 winner’s check up for grabs. Then on Friday and Saturday, the $53,000-to-win Silver Dollar Nationals caps the mega weekend.

Earl Pearson Jr. Wins in a Photo Finish at Florence
Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Tripleheader Next

SHREVEPORT, La. (07/14/20) – Earl Pearson Jr. claimed his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) win of the season on Friday night at Florence Speedway in Union, Ky.

In the closest finish in Series history, Pearson drove the Lucas Oil No. 1 P&W Sales/ Clements Racing Engine/ Black Diamond Chassis House Car across the finish line just .002 seconds ahead of track regular, Josh Rice.

“He [Rice] was up there on the cushion and when you are out there in the lead you don’t know where to go,” Pearson said in Victory Lane. “We found a line through the middle of the racetrack. He [Rice] did a heck of a job and drove the wheels off that car tonight. He’s a good kid, I love racing with him. He drives everybody clean and I respect the heck out of him,” said the 4-time Series champion.

Drawing 33 cars for the General Tire Summer Sizzler Nationals, Pearson Jr. followed up the fastest time in his qualifying group with a 10-lap heat race victory. Starting the feature in second, Earl faded back to fifth early but began closing in on the leaders just past the halfway point.

Tracking down race-leader Josh Rice amid lapped-traffic in the final 10 circuits, Pearson Jr. slide around Rice in the final corner and held off his charge at the line to capture the $12,000 victory. Zack Dohm, Kyle Bronson, and Trevor Landrum rounded out the Top-5 finishers.

“All the guys back home watching on TV and all my family and friends, my son Trey, I’m sure they’re jumping up and down because we ain’t had a lot to cheer for this year or even late last year,” Pearson added. “We’ll take it here tonight and hopefully we can keep it going.”

Saturday night’s General Tire Summer Sizzler Nationals finale at Florence Speedway fell victim to Mother Nature.

On Monday night, the LOLMDS tour took the team to 300 Raceway in Farley, Iowa. With 27 entrants on hand for the Truck Country 50, Pearson locked his spot into the $10,000-to-win A-Main via a sixth-place finish in his heat race. Starting 16th on the grid, Pearson fell to a 19th place finish in the 50-lapper.

This weekend – July 17-19 – Earl Pearson Jr. and the Black Diamond Chassis team are primed for an LOLMDS tripleheader. The action kicks off on Friday night at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill. before shifting to Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. for a doubleheader on Saturday and Sunday.

Overton Claims Southern Nationals Victory at Wythe
12-Race Miniseries Continues This Week

EVANS, Ga. (07/14/20) – Brandon Overton put his Wells Motorsports No. 76 Crossfit Overton/ Allstar Concrete/ Longhorn Chassis by Wells/ Clements Racing Engine-powered Super Late Model in Victory Lane for the tenth time this season on Saturday.

Overton held off Chris Madden in the closing laps to win the Schaeffer’s Southern Nationals Series event at Wythe Raceway in Rural Retreat, Va. Finishing just 0.188 seconds ahead at the finish line, Overton earned $10,053 for the victory.

On Friday night, Overton invaded Smoky Mountain Speedway (Maryville, Tenn.) for the  Southern Nationals opener. After laying down the third fastest time in his group, Overton suffered transmissions issues that prevented him from completing a lap in his heat.

Charging from the tail of his B-Main to pick up the win, Brandon locked into the 17th-starting position for the opening night feature. With $10,053 on the line, Overton advanced through the field 13 spots to register a fourth-place finish behind Chris Madden, Dale McDowell, and Cory Hedgecock. Ross Bailes finished in fifth.

The following night at Wythe Raceway, Brandon came in third fastest in his group before placing third in his heat.

Starting the main event in fifth, Overton blasted past race-leader Madden following a caution on lap 19 and began building a comfortable lead until lapped-traffic became a factor. Fending off a last-lap challenge from Madden, Overton crossed the finish line ahead of Madden, McDowell, Bailes, and Donald McIntosh.

“We had that caution right at the right time and that kinda let me move around to where I needed to go,” said Overton, who said he may have pushed his car a little too hard in establishing a half a straightaway lead midway through the 53-lap race. “When I took the lead, I shouldn’t have ran it that hard. I don’t know if running it that hard … it definitely killed the tire. But I think what killed it more than anything was when I got to them lap cars. Sliding across that black like that, it hurts them tires bad. But I didn’t want to let Madden just drive back by me or get me in traffic, so I was just trying to do anything I could to stay out in front.”

“When you’re leading here, it’s hard,” said Overton. “Like you do not know where to go, like in the end. I took the lead at the top and I kept telling myself ‘Man I think I need to leave low in (turn) two because I passed Vic (Hill) that way.’ Then I just saw the last lap where (Madden) cut off the corner down there and about caught me down the backstretch and he dive bombed (turn) three and he made up a lot of time.

“But it’s so hard to tell yourself. (Crewmen giving signals are) just telling you how far somebody is, and it would’ve been hard for them to tell me, ‘Hey go in high,’ you know when you go by them at 100 MPH. So, I was just running the wrong line right there at the end and my tire was hurt, so I just got lucky. We got the lead at the right time. I probably should’ve eased up on it a little bit but I just … as much bad luck as we’ve been having, I just didn’t want any questions. I wanted to go and hurry up and finish these 53 laps.”

After taking Sunday off, the Southern Nationals made a stop at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tenn. on Monday. With the Top-5 drivers from each qualifying group locked into the $3,500-to-win feature, Overton secured the third spot on the grid.

Overton chased eventual race winner, Madden for much of the 35-lapper before settling for second-place outing. Hedgecock, Bailes, and Logan Roberson rounded out the Top-5 finishers.

After three rounds of the miniseries, Overton is second in the Southern Nationals standings. The tour continues tonight at I-75 Raceway in Sweetwater, Tenn. To learn more about these events, please visit .

I’m looking forward to the Show-Me 100 and Diamond Nationals this weekend."

Picking up an 8-lap heat race victory over Dylan Hoover, Cornell locked into the pole position for the 30-lap main event.

Gregg Satterlee Scores Third Port Royal Speedway Win
Pockets $3,000 Summer Championship Race

INDIANA, Pa. (07/14/20) – Gregg Satterlee parked his Satterlee Motorsports No. 22 Keyser Manufacturing Valvoline/ Classic Ink/ Rocket Chassis in Port Royal Speedway Victory Lane for the third time this season on Saturday.

Satterlee dominated the main event, pulling away to a more than three-second lead at times in the 30-lapper. He ultimately finished 1.5 seconds ahead of Ross Robinson at the checkers for a $3,000 payday.

“I’ll take it,” Satterlee said. “Any time you can get up here in victory lane is a lot of fun. I’m glad we got a front row starting spot tonight. It wasn’t as easy to move around tonight. Fortunate to get a good redraw and start up front and made my job a little bit easier. I was able to find a line that seemed to work best with the car and make laps. It’s good to get a win.”

After Mother Nature wiped out Friday night’s program at Thunder Mountain Speedway (Knox Dale, Pa.), Satterlee headed to Port Royal Speedway on Saturday. Drawing 32 cars, Gregg followed up the sixth fastest time in qualifying with an 8-lap heat race victory.

Overtaking race-leader Bryan Bernheisel on the third lap, Satterlee ran uncontested for the remaining 27 circuits to capture his third straight victory at the half-mile oval. He took the checkers ahead of Robinson, Kyle Lee, Andy Haus, and Colton Flinner.

This Friday, July 17, Satterlee plans to attend a $3,000-to-win event at Thunder Mountain Speedway in Brookville, Pa. On Saturday, he’ll travel to BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pa. for another $3,000-to-win program.

Mallett Holds on for Top-15 Finish at Riverside International Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (July 14, 2020) - Jordon Mallett finished 14th last Saturday night at Riverside International Speedway while racing with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.

The top-15 outing was the 13th of the season for the Greenbrier, Ark., native and it marked the first time he has been off the podium in more than a month.

"You're going to have nights like that, but it's frustrating to have it at a track I'm traditionally good at," he said. "The track did the direct opposite of what we expected and it was just one of those nights where you're left scratching your head trying to figure out where you went wrong."

Mallett advanced one position to finish third in a heat race, which secured the 13th starting position in the feature.

At the drop of the green flag, Mallett felt comfortable and was moving forward throughout the field. However, after a handful of laps he lost the handling on his car and faded to 14th at the checkered flag.

"Once the track gets slick, it just keeps getting slicker and the car was a complete handful to drive," he said. "I took a big swing at things in terms of the setup and I just misjudged big time on what the track was going to do. I would've liked to at least get a top 10, but with how far off we were a top 15 seems like a win."

Next up for Mallett will be a trip to U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Mo., this Friday with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour. He enters the night fourth in the championship standings, trailing third by seven points and the leader by 95 points.

"I try not to get too hung up on the points deal as I feel like we expect to contend every night and if we do that we'll have a shot at it at the end of the year," he said. "However, I think it's more about what you can salvage on the nights you are not so great more than the nights where you're on top of things that will make your season a success. There can only be one winner every night and most often it's not going to be you. So it is about doing the best you can no matter what the track or car gives you and moving on to the next race.

"We went to U.S. 36 Raceway once last year and I feel like we have our cars where we want them to be. We're going to head in there and try to put Riverside in the rearview mirror."


July 11 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Heat race: 3 (4); Feature: 14 (13).

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 14, 2020) - After missing the top-ten during holiday action at Cedar Lake Speedway one week prior, Donny Schatz and Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing put together an impressive three-day performance during action in Iowa, Wisconsin and Indiana, highlighting the weekend slate with a pair of runner-up finishes, one of which the result of a hard charge from 23rd at Terre Haute Action Track in Terre Haute, Indiana, on Sunday, July 12. Schatz’ passing display was sound enough to earn the evening’s Hard Charger Award for passing the most main event cars.

Schatz was forced to start 23rd after losing a motor during his respective heat race.

“We got ourselves qualified well at Terre Haute, but the Heat Race went to Hell in a handbag,” Schatz said. “So, that’s just the way it works. We had to dig ourselves out of a hole. It’s a pretty respectable night. We’d like to be a little bit better. We won’t hang our head on it. It’s trying at the moment, but we’ll dig through it. These (Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing) guys are incredible at what they do.”

Donny Schatz kicked-off his weekend in the upper-Midwest with a runner-up result at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, on Friday, July 10. The Fargo, North Dakota-native started second on the feature grid and battled with eventual winner Parker Price-Miller during the closing laps.

Just one position shy of a podium sweep, Schatz finished fourth at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin, on Saturday, July 11. The ten-time World of Outlaws champion started seventh on the evening grid, locking himself in with a third-place run during his respective heat race.

Donny Schatz and the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Advance Professional/Carquest Auto Parts/Technet Professional Automotive Service/Ford Performance/Mobil 1/Sage Fruit/Curb Records/Absolute Automation & Security/Hunt Brothers Pizza/Digital Ally/J&J Auto Racing/No. 15 team will continue their 2020 World of Outlaws championship quest with a visit to Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, on Tuesday, July 14.

Rico Abreu back on top with All Stars; Victorious at Muskingum for $5,000

Dates: Wednesday through Sunday, July 8th-12th
Event: Ohio Sprint Speedweek
Series: All Star Circuit of Champions
Rico Abreu A-Main Finishes (Start):
Brushcreek Motorsports Complex: 2nd (4th)
Muskingum County Speedway: 1st (1st)
Portsmouth Raceway Park: 12th (17th)
Sharon Speedway: 3rd (5th)
Sharon Speedway: 6th (10th)

ST. HELENA, Calif. (July 14, 2020) - Rico Abreu’s final five nights in the Buckeye State for Ohio Sprint Speedweek featuring the All Star Circuit of Champions proved successful for the St. Helena, California-native, ending the five-race stretch with three podium performances, highlighting all starts with a dominating victory at Muskingum County Speedway in Zanesville, Ohio, on Thursday, July 9.

Forced to hold off former Outlaw full-timer, Shane Stewart, as well as two-time and defending All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, for all 30 circuits, the victory was Abreu’s first All Star win in nearly three seasons, claiming $5,000 in the process and adding an Ohio Speedweek win to match his recent PA Speedweek triumph.

“Patience was keen there when we got to lapped traffic. You got guys like Aaron Reutzel, Shane Stewart, Kyle Larson behind you; you gotta really hustle it,” an elated Rico Abreu said in Muskingum victory lane. “My car had a really good right rear squeeze to it, so I could carry a lot of momentum to the center of the corner then just kinda back everything up getting off. My guys did a phenomenal job. They worked all night long and made little tweaks every time we got off of the track. It’s all based on communication with them and making sure you’re giving them the right feedback. I feel like we hit all of our steps.”

Abreu’s other podium results occurred at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex on Wednesday, July 8, where the Californian finished second, as well as at Sharon Speedway where he finished third during the annual Lou Blaney Memorial on Saturday, July 11.

Although unable to double-up in the podium column during action at Sharon Speedway, Abreu capped Ohio Sprint Speedweek with a sixth-place performance during Justin Snyder Salute to the Troops action on Sunday, July 12; Rico started tenth on the grid.

Upcoming plans for Rico Abreu and the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Priority Aviation/Salty’s BBQ/Self Made Racing/Sweeney Cars/Dancer Logistics/No. 24 team remain uncertain. Fans are encouraged to stay alert online for continuing updates pertaining to Abreu’s schedule.
