Mike Marlar Collects $20,000 for LOLMDS Deuces Wild Victory
Atomic Speedway and Brownstown Speedway LOLMDS Double Header Next on the Schedule

WINFIELD, Tenn. (02/26/24) – Mike Marlar topped Saturday night’s Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) Deuces Wild finale with his Skyline Motorsports No. 157 / Truck Country / Bruening Rock Products / Mesilla Valley Transportation / Can-Am Auto Salvage / Petroff Towing / Longhorn Race Car Super Late Model.

Marlar’s second win of the year and second victory in as many weeks was worth $20,000.

The Tennessee racer had to turn back a mid-race challenge from Brandon Sheppard to get the win.

“It was no walk in the park, there was a whole lot more to it than that. These guys are really tough, Shepp [Brandon Sheppard] about had me passed at one end I guess, and I was lucky to get back by him. These are some of the best racers I feel like with the stiffest competition there are down here. I am happy to win against them that’s for sure,” Marlar said. “Winning a race at this level is basically a night of all good decisions on the track and off the track, and our team made all the right decision and got the win. Thank you to Skyline Motorsports and all our great sponsors for making all this possible.”

With Friday’s opener stifled by Mother Nature, Mike Marlar entered the Bruening Rock Products No. 157 Super Late Model into battle at Golden Isles Speedway (Brunswick, Ga.) on Saturday for the second half of the doubleheader Deuces Wild event.

Following the fastest lap in his 23-car group in Allstar Performance time trials, Marlar cruised to a convincing eight-lap victory in his heat.

Leading all but two laps in the 50-lap Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) sanctioned feature, Mike rolled to his second win of the season and 22nd-career LOLMDS triumph. He banked the $20,000 payday ahead of Brandon Sheppard, Chris Madden, Brandon Overton, and Jonathan Davenport.

Mike is currently eighth in the latest LOLMDS point standings.

The team will now enjoy three weeks off before resuming competition with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series on March 22 – 23. Action opens with the $12,000-to-win Buckeye Spring 50 on Friday, March 22 at Atomic Speedway (Alma, Ohio) followed by the $15,000-to-win Indiana Icebreaker on Saturday, March 23 at Brownstown (Ind.) Speedway.

Hudson O’Neal Seventh in Deuces Wild at Golden Isles Speedway
Sits Second in LOMLDS Standings with Georgia-Florida Speedweeks Concluded

SHINNSTON, W.Va. (02/26/24) Hudson O’Neal put a wrap on the 2024 Georgia-Florida Speedway on Saturday evening at Golden Isles Speedway, where he raced to a seventh-place finish in the Deuces Wild aboard his Valvoline / Seubert Calf Ranches No. 1 Rocket1 Racing / Ace Metal Works / XR1 Rocket Chassis / Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model.

O’Neal and the Rocket1 Racing team currently sit second in the latest Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) standings.

“Track position was key in the feature, and starting 10th on the grid was definitely a disadvantage, but we made the most of it and came home seventh,” O’Neal said. “Overall, it was a solid Speedweeks for our team, and we are now focused on the main part of the Lucas Oil (Late Model Dirt Series) team. It’s been a busy past two months, and my team has done a great job giving me a really good car every night. Thanks to them and everyone who supports this Rocket1 Racing team.”

With Friday's opener falling to wet weather, Rocket1 Racing and Hudson O'Neal entered a single event over the weekend with Saturday's Deuces Wild finale at Golden Isles Speedway (Brunswick, Ga.).

Against a stacked field of 45 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) competitors, O’Neal vaulted forward two positions in his heat race to finish third, which positioned him on the fifth row for the weekend finale.

With a $20,000 top prize up for grabs, Hudson climbed three spots in the 50-lap affair to record a seventh-place finish.

Hudson sits five markers behind Ricky Thornton Jr. for the lead in the latest LOLMDS point standings.

Full results from the event are available at www.LucasDirt.com .

The team is now back in West Virginia, refreshing their equipment and preparing for the next Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) events, which will be held on Atomic Speedway (Alma, Ohio) and Brownstown (Ind.) Speedway on March 22 – 23.
