Josh Richards Scores Runner-Up Finish at Port Royal
Tri City Speedway and Macon Speedway Up Next

St. Marys, Ohio (04/26/18) – It was an up-and-down weekend of competition with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) for Josh Richards and the Best Performance Motorsports team.

Richards would ultimately end the weekend on a high note with a podium finish in the team’s Bulk Material Lift #1 Colt/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model.

After seeing Friday's slate at Sharon Speedway (Hartford, Ohio) postponed by poor weather, the weekend opened on Saturday night at the legendary Hagerstown Speedway (Hagerstown, Maryland) with the $12,000-to-win, 37th annual Stanley Schetrompf Classic.

Struggles in preliminary action forced Richards to utilize a provisional to start the main event in the 23rd position. He would fight tooth-and-nail in the feature to surge to a 12th-place finish at the checkered flag.

On Sunday evening the team trekked to the sprawling confines of Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania) for the $10,000-to-win, Rumble by the River. Forty-three drivers took to the 1/2-mile oval, and a heat race win sent Josh to the 50-lap finale with the third-starting spot.

Richards raced in a podium position throughout the event and even made a bid for the lead on a green-white-checkered finish before coming up just short of the win as he finished second behind Scott Bloomquist. Earl Pearson Jr., Tim McCreadie, and Darrell Lanigan rounded out the Top-5 finishers.

"We had a great car tonight; those restarts weren't very good for us, but we recovered and gave the Best Performance Team a good finish tonight," Richards said following his runner-up performance at Port Royal Speedway. "Last night at Hagerstown we had a rough night. We worked on some things today. If it could have gone caution free tonight it might have been a different story. This place is so fun to drive on. Thanks to all the fans for coming out tonight. I wish we could race here tomorrow."

With the weekend's action in the books, Josh continues to sit second in the latest series standings. For full results from the events as well as the latest series standings, please visit .

The upcoming weekend – April 27-28 – will have the team elbows deep in LOLMDS competition once again. On Friday night a $12,000-to-win slate is on tap at the Gundaker-owned Tri City Speedway (Pontoon Beach, Illinois). Saturday evening takes the team to the “Mighty” Macon Speedway as drivers look to tame the 1/5-mile bullring.

Scott Bloomquist Parks It at Port Royal with LOLMDS
Tennessee Racer Has Eight Top Two Finishes in Past Eight Events

Mooresburg, Tennessee (04/26/18) – Scott Bloomquist continued his recent hot streak in his Reece Monuments #0 Sweet-Bloomquist Race Car/ Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model over the weekend.

The Tennessee racer picked up a win and runner-up finish in weekend action with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS).

Saturday night found Scott invading the legendary Hagerstown Speedway (Hagerstown, Maryland) for the 37th annual Stanley Schetrompf Classic.

A heat race win positioned Scott third on the starting grid for the $12,000-to-win event. He began his pursuit of race leader Jonathan Davenport from the drop of the green flag. Scott would hold the runner-up spot throughout the 50 lapper before crossing the finish line in the second position behind Davenport. Tyler Bare, Tim McCreadie and Mason Zeigler completed the Top-5 finishers.

The Rumble by the River took Bloomquist to Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pennsylvania) on Sunday night, where 43 entries looked to take a shot at the $10,000 winner's check.

After winning his heat race Scott started fourth in the feature and took the lead on lap 2. He paced the field throughout the event, and not even a late-race caution could stop his march to his second series win of the season and fourth overall win of the year.

Josh Richards, Earl Pearson Jr., Tim McCreadie, and Darrell Lanigan completed the Top-5 finishers.

"We have run really well since Florida," Bloomquist said. "Last weekend, we had a win and a second-place finish, and this weekend a second and a win. The car, the engine, the shocks, everything is working well," said the 54-year-old Bloomquist in Lucas Oil Victory Lane.

"We had good rotation, it carried around the high-line tonight. The car could work low, the middle, or high. I tried to run up high in three and four because my momentum would be really good off the turn-4 corner. When we had to go to the bottom to pass lapped cars we could. Thanks to Randy Sweet and everybody at Sweet Manufacturing."

Scott continues to make up ground in his pursuit of a fourth LOLMDS title. He's now third in the latest standings. Full results from the weekend are available at

This weekend – April 27-28 – Scott will continue to focus on winning races and working his way forward in the LOLMDS standings. On Friday night he’ll pursue a $12,000 top prize at Tri City Speedway before looking to tame the “Mighty” Macon Speedway on Saturday night and the $12,000 reward that comes with it.

Potomac Speedway and Winchester Speedway Next Up

Waynesboro, Virginia (04/26/18) – Logan Roberson had a crazy busy weekend in his Wynbridge Inc. #17 BTS Towing Service/ XR1 Rocket Chassis Late Model, and he made the most of the opportunity.

The talented 21-year-old racer scored two wins as well as the Battle of the Bay title.

“I’m really proud of what we accomplished last weekend,” Roberson commented. “Those fields were incredibly tough. We were consistent the first two nights and then the final two nights I was able to turn up the wick and get the wins and the championship. Our season may have started a little slower than I expected, but this team is hitting on all cylinders now.”

Logan Roberson kicked off the Battle of the Bay weekend by making the trip to Delaware International Speedway (Delmar, Delaware) on Wednesday evening for the RUSH Dirt Late Model Series sanctioned opener. With a stout field of 46 cars on hand for the Battle of the Bay, Logan locked his spot into the opening night feature with a runner-up finish in his heat race behind Matt Hill. Earning the eighth-starting position, Roberson improved three spots in the 30-lapper to place fifth behind Max Blair, Austin Hubbard, Ross Robinson, and Amanda Whaley.

The following night at Georgetown Speedway (Georgetown, Delaware), Roberson followed up the fifth-fastest time overall in qualifying with a third-place finish in his heat race.

For the third round of the Battle of the Bay, Roberson was one of 41 cars registered for action at Potomac Speedway (Bud,ds Creek, Maryland) on Friday evening. After laying down the second-fastest time overall behind Ross Robinson in qualifying, Logan bagged an 8-lap heat race victory positioning him third on the starting grid for the main event.

Outrunning Ross Robinson in the closing stages, Roberson ousted the 24-car field to pick up the $2,000 payday and his third win of the season. Robinson, Max Blair, Matt Hill, and Chuck Bowie completed the Top-5 finishers in the 30-lap affair.

The final round of the Battle of the Bay took Logan to Winchester Speedway (Winchester, Virginia) on Saturday, where he topped the 44-car field in qualifying by lowering the track record.

Earning the pole position for the feature after sweeping his heat race and the speed dash, Logan led from flag-to-flag, capturing the $2,000 prize along with the $1,000 bonus for winning the overall points during the four-night Battle of the Bay. Jeremy Wonderling, Tanner Kerr, John Waters, and Max Blair rounded out the Top-5 in the A-Main.

“Whynot hasn’t always been my best track, so it means a ton to win a World of Outlaws event there,” Moyer Jr. stated. “Friday night we got off to a slow start but rebounded for a Top-10 finish, so I knew that we had a good car. Saturday night we hit the ground running and never looked back.

“I just want to thank my team, my sponsors, and my fans. We’ve had a rough start to the year with a lot of random bad luck and other issues, but on Saturday night we got it altogether. Hopefully we have the monkey off our backs now.”

Billy Moyer Jr. returned to action with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series on Friday night at Whynot Motorsports Park (Meridian, Mississippi) with the opening round of the two-day Queen City Shootout. Losing two spots in his 10-lap heat race, Moyer Jr. logged a 10th-place finish transferring him into the B-Main.

Sending the Top-3 into the opening night feature, Billy captured a consolation victory, positioning him 18th on starting grid for the main event. Breaking into the Top-10, Moyer Jr. improved eight spots in the 50-lapper, reeling in a 10th-place outing.

The following night in a field of 39 cars, Billy recorded the second-fastest time in his qualifying group before picking up a heat race victory over his dad. Earning the second-starting position for the A-Main, Moyer Jr. carried a comfortable lead for much of the race until late where he held off a hard-charging Shane Clanton to pick up his first win of the season and a $10,000 payday.

Clanton, Chris Madden, Mike Marlar, and Brandon Sheppard completed the Top-5 finishers in the 50-lap affair.

Moyer Jr. was slated to travel to Smoky Mountain Speedway (Maryville, Tennessee) for a pair of WoO Craftsman Late Model Series events. Unfortunately, he will not be able to attend.

“My daughter is a little under the weather in the hospital, and I don’t want to be nine hours away from her this weekend, so we are going to have to skip the Outlaws events at Smoky Mountain Speedway,” Moyer Jr. said. “I hate not going, but my family is obviously my top priority. I’ll look forward to getting back to action with the tour in the next week or so.”

Big Frog Motorsports Heads to The Hornet’s Nest
Tyler Clem and Donald McIntosh to Pilot Team’s Entries

Ocala, Florida (04/26/18) – This Friday and Saturday Big Frog Motorsports will invade Talladega Short Track – also known as “The Hornet’s Nest” – with both guns blazing.

Georgia’s Donald McIntosh will look to tame the Super Late Model division, while 15-year-old Florida phenom Tyler Clem will hook horns with the Crate Late Model contingent as they compete at the 1/3-mile oval during the annual NASCAR weekend.

“This weekend really has me pumped,” team owner, Augie Burttram said. “Donald (McIntosh) really impressed me in his debut with the team two weeks ago. Now to have him joined by Tyler (Clem) is pretty cool. Seeing Tyler win in everything from Late Models to Sprint Cars to Modifieds in the past year, shows just how talented he is, so I’m hoping to give him some more opportunities as this year progresses.”

For Tyler Clem – who already has two Sprint Car triumphs this year – this is an exciting opportunity.
“Augie (Burttram) and Big Frog Motorsports have been supporters of my racing career in various ways over the past few years, so to finally have the chance to drive one of their cars is really cool. I’ve only run Talladega Short Track a few times before, but I’ve had good runs there so hopefully this will be a big weekend for us.”

This Friday and Saturday Big Frog Motorsports will resume their 2018 campaign with a trip to Talladega Short Track (Eastaboga, Alabama). The team will field an entry for Tyler Clem in the NeSmith Dirt Late Model Series events. On Friday night a $2,000 top prize will be on the line, and on Saturday night a $2,500 winner’s check will be up for grabs.

Meanwhile, Donald McIntosh – who has a win and a pair of runner-up finishes in his first three starts with the team – will be compete in the $2,000-to-win, unsanctioned Super Late Model event on Friday night, and the $4,000-to-win Southern All Star Late Model Series event on Saturday night in a Big Frog Motorsports entry.
