Earl Pearson Jr. Pockets $50,000 in LOLMDS Rumble by the River
Florida Racer and Papich Racing Prepare for Labor Day Weekend Action
NIPOMO, Ca. (08/29/22) – Earl Pearson Jr. notched his 40th-career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series triumph with a winning performance on Saturday night during the Rumble by the River at Pennsylvania’s Port Royal Speedway.
He claimed $50,000 for the victory aboard his Lucas Oil / Papich Construction No. 46 Bilstein / Tegeler Wrecking & Racking / Longhorn Chassis / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.
While Pearson Jr. led the final 41 circuits of the five-figure finale, he had to fend off a late-race charge from Ricky Thornton Jr. to register his first win of the season.
““What a heckuva show that was. (Ricky) Thornton ran me (hard),” Pearson said in Victory Lane. “But, hey, it was a helluva race. I did all I could there. … Hell, I’m out of breath. I don’t know. It was a heckuva race those last couple laps.
“I knew I had to change my line, go in low, and let it drift up because he’s a master of the slide job. If I didn’t block the line, I knew what he was going to do. He did a heckuva job. I didn’t know if I needed that caution or not like I said. My signal guy was telling me go high, go low, and I was doing everything I could. I was all over the place I think. Anyway, hats off to my crew guys and Jason Papich … everybody involved. Can’t say enough. I like the big racetracks, and it paid off.”
Action with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) picked back up on Friday with the Rumble by the River at Port Royal Speedway (Port Royal, Pa.).
Joining a stout field of 50 cars for a pair of preliminary features, Earl Pearson Jr. followed up the third-fastest lap in his time trial group with a second-place finish in his heat race.
With $5,000 on the line in the prelim, Pearson advanced forward four spots in the 25-lapper to register a second-place finish. He followed Brandon Sheppard across the line with Jimmy Owens rounding out the podium.
Starting on the pole of his heat race on Saturday afternoon, Earl outran Hudson O’Neal to pick up the eight-lap victory. Earning the fourth-starting position for the feature, Pearson tracked down early pacesetter Ricky Thornton Jr. on the ninth circuit to assume command of the lead.
He kept Thornton at bay throughout the closing laps after a late-race caution to secure his first win of the season and 40th-career LOLMDS triumph.
The driver, known as “EPJ,” pocketed $50,000 ahead of Thornton, Gregg Satterlee, Jonathan Davenport, and Daulton Wilson.
Earl now sits fifth in the latest LOLMDS standings.

Nick Hoffman Secures Sharon Speedway Winner’s Cash
Three-Race Land of Lincoln Labor Day Weekend Swing Awaits
Mooresville, North Carolina (08/30/22) – Nick Hoffman scored the Renegades of Dirt Modified Series win on Saturday night in his debut at Sharon Speedway in his Wehrs Machine & Racing Products / Outlaw Mini Loaders No. 2 NOS Energy Drink / FOX Racing Shox / Rockwell Security / Elite Chassis Modified.
“It was a pretty wild weekend. We were battling hard with (Ethan) Dotson for the win on Friday night. I edged ahead and should have committed to sliding all the way across turns three and four (on the white flag lap), but left a lane and he was able to drive back around me. We made contact and my right front tire was flat, and I was along for the ride, and we both went spinning after the checkered flag. No hard feelings, just hard racing,” Hoffman said. “Saturday night was our first trip to Sharon (Speedway), and it’s one of the best racetracks I’ve ever been to. We got the win there.
“We are now looking forward to three straight nights of racing this weekend at Farmer City Raceway, Fairbury Speedway, and Spoon River Speedway.”
Friday night found Nick Hoffman embarking on a busy weekend in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Action opened on Friday night at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway, where 30 entries took part in the Mid-Atlantic Modified Series event.
A second-place finish in his heat race, placed Nick seventh on the starting grid for the 25-lap feature at the 1/2-mile oval.
The late stages of the night's feature found Hoffman moving into battle Ethan Dotson for the lead. Entering turn three on the final lap Nick edged into the lead with Dotson battling back to his outside. The duo drag raced off turn four before making contact, which resulted in a flat right-front tire on Hoffman No. 2.
The duo crashed across the finish line with Nick crossing second to Dotson with Michael Altobelli Jr., Drake Troutman, and David Stremme rounding out the Top 5.
On Saturday, for the first time ever, the team invaded Sharon Speedway (Hartford, Ohio), where Hoffman notched his 23rd win of the year in the Renegades of Dirt Modified event. He swept the night's program by setting fast time in qualifications with a 17.924-second lap. He then backed it up with a dash win from the fourth-starting spot.
Starting on the pole for the feature Hoffman wired the feature field for the victory, which came over Nate Young, Joe Gabrielson, Ty Rhoades, and Mike McGee.
Full results from the weekend are available at www.PortRoyalSpeedway.com and www.SharonSpeedway.com.
The team will head to the Land of Lincoln this Friday-Sunday for a trio of high-paying Modified events. Action opens with a $5,000-to-win slate on Friday night at Farmer City (Ill.) Raceway, before shifting to Fairbury (Ill.) Speedway for $10,000-to-win 10th annual Modified Nationals on Saturday.
