August 23rd: Whisky City 50-Lucas Oil Late Models

Lucas Oil Late Models

LAWRENCEBURG, IN (August 23, 2014) – Don O’Neal returned to his home-state of Indiana on Saturday Night and won the Whiskey City 50 at Lawrenceburg Speedway. It was O’Neal’s sixth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season, and continues to close the gap on current point leader, Jimmy Owens, who came home sixth.

O’Neal grabbed the lead on lap four from his Clint Bowyer Racing teammate, Steve Francis, and charged to his 39th career LOLMDS victory. Francis finished second followed by pole-sitter, Scott Bloomquist. Steve Casebolt drove by Earl Pearson Jr. on the final lap to take fourth, as Pearson Jr. would round out the top five. “The car was on a rail tonight, no doubt,” said O’Neal. “I have to thank Lance and Barry Wright, Jeremy Justice, and Tony Trent for all of the hard work they do. Clint is going to be real happy with this one-two finish here tonight.”

“We started fifth and the bottom was working real well there early on. I had a few moments there in traffic, but everybody gave each other plenty of room. It’s good to come back here and win, especially after missing last year’s race. I didn’t know how far Steve (Francis) was behind me, I was just concentrating on the traffic ahead”, O’Neal  stated in victory lane.“We had a pretty good car last week at Batesville, led a lot of laps, but finished fifth. Then Thursday Night, we wound up sixth. We took last night off and the crew went over everything on the car. It handled really well tonight from start to finish. I am real proud of everyone with the CBR Team. I have to thank Peak Antifreeze and Motor Oil, Crawford Supply-Traeger Grills, Cometic Gasket, Ohlins, Georgia Boot, Toyota, Clements Racing Engines and of course, Barry Wright Race Cars.”

Francis, who was victorious in this race a year ago, was extremely happy with his second place finish. “We had a really good car tonight. Our setup was not all that different from Don’s. Congrats to him on the win, and he deserves it. He ran a really good race. We tried to stay with him and I thought I may have a shot at him in traffic, but he was able to get through it cleanly. I want to thank Georgia Boot, Peak Antifreeze, Crawford Supply, and everyone else on the CBR Team. We hope to finish up the season strong.”

In victory lane, Bloomquist commented on his podium finish, “Another third place finish, what else can I say. The track was really good. Don always runs well here. I think I had something for Steve, but he got away from me in traffic and I lost sight of him. It was another strong finish for the Ole Smoky Moonshine, Sweet-Bloomquist car. We’ll go home and get ready for next weekend.”

Completing the top ten were Jimmy Owens, Jared Landers, Dennis Erb Jr., Scott James, and John Blankenship.

In preliminary action, Scott Bloomquist set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time amongst the 28 entrants, with a lap of 14.015 seconds. Scott Bloomquist, Steve Francis, and Jared Landers won their respective heat races. Mike Marlar won the B-Main.
