Scott Bloomquist wins Lucas Oil Late Models Dirt Series USA 100 at Virginia Motor Speedway

Jamaica, VA --

(Courtesy James Essex Lucas Oil Series) – Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN took the lead for good on the 24th lap from Steve Francis of Ashland, KY. He went on to win the rain-shortened Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned USA 100 on Sunday afternoon at Bill Sawyer's Virginia Motor Speedway. Bloomquist and Francis staged a terrific race for the lead in the first 24 laps of the race until Bloomquist began to pull away. Rain then hit the track and the main event was halted with 31 laps complete. Mike Marlar of Winfield, TN was third followed by Jimmy Owens of Newport, TN and Jamie Lathroum of Mechanicsville, MD.



Francis grabbed the lead at the start with Bloomquist and Steve Shaver in tow. Francis held the lead for most of the race with Bloomquist edging ahead of him on lap seven. Francis quickly charged back by Bloomquist for the lead. The two continued a side-by-side battle with Francis leading the way until lap 24 when Bloomquist passed him exiting turn four in traffic.



Bloomquist swiftly put three lapped cars between himself and Francis. Rain started to fall on lap 31, forcing a red-flag. With more precipitation on the way and being past the half-mark, VMS officials and Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series officials decided to call the event with 19 laps remaining out of the scheduled 50.



It was Bloomquist' first ever win at Virginia Motor Speedway as he completed the weekend sweep in Virginia. "It sounds good to win both of these races; we had never won at either of these tracks. We knew we would get one eventually, the car was good all day, it was a little hard to pass in the heat race. The tire set up we chose worked great for getting to the bottom and get something done down there," said the 47-year-old who captured his 13th series win of the year and the 39th of his career.



"Steve (Francis) was running well, he got boxed in some traffic and I was able to get under him. We raced close and clean, we both run Roush-Yates Engines and they were great today. Thanks to the fans for coming out today, it's a shame the weather didn't cooperate," said Bloomquist, who with the win took back over the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Championship Points lead from Owens.



Bloomquist drives his own Bloomquist Race Cars Ford sponsored by Base Racing Fuels, Hawkeye Trucking, Sweet Mfg, Miller Brothers Construction, Hoosier Tires, Lane Automotive, Allstar Performance, Dixie Chopper and Ohlins. His win in the Sunday's USA 100 was the third of his career with his previous victories coming in 1993 and 1994 when the event was held at Beckley (WV) Motor Speedway.



Francis in his Valvoline, Harbaugh Amusement, MasterSbilt #15 took second in the final results. "We had a real good car today, we went with the smaller motor thinking the track would slick up some and it did. I tried to hold my line there, if we just could have kept the lead for about five more laps we would've won, but once Scott got by me, I knew I was in trouble."



Marlar in the Bryson Motorsports Rocket claimed third and was happy with his run. "To finish third to these guys, it is quite an accomplishment. We'll take third and go to the next race, I was just waiting for the final 20 laps, and I felt like we had a car that could've won."



Completing the top ten were John Blankenship of Williamson, WV; Steve Shaver of Vienna, WV; Don O'Neal of Martinsville, IN; Jason Covert of York Haven, PA; and Dan Stone of Thompson, PA.



In preliminary action, Mike Marlar was the Red Buck Cigars fast qualifier among the 32 entrants. The two-25 lap qualifying heat races went to Steve Francis and Marlar. The B-mains were won by Gary Stuhler and Walker Arthur



The 30 Lap feature for the modifieds was rained out and will not be rescheduled. Nick Hoffman of Mooresville, NC set a new track record in qualifying with a lap of 18.988 seconds. Picking up heat race wins were Nick Hoffman, Dave Defibaugh and Dan Arnold. Rich Marks won the B Main.



Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway will return to action this coming Saturday September 24th and host the rescheduled Truckin Thunder, Collision One, WIGO Championship Night.



It will be the last point race of the season for all four of the track’s Virginia Army National Guard Dirt Series divisions. With all the divisional point races tight heading into the final weekend the racing should be intense. Throw in the fact that every competitor is also vying for the coveted Virginia Army National Guard Dirt Series championship, which will crown an over all track champion, this will be a must see event.
