Indiana Icebreaker at Brownstown Speedway up Next for Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series

March 16th, 2013

WAYCROSS, GA – The 16th Annual Indiana Icebreaker has become a springtime tradition in the Midwest, and will take place on Saturday, March 23rd. The LOLMDS-sanctioned event is held at the historic Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, IN. The single-day event will pay out over $50,000 with Red Buck Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains and a 50-lap $10,000 to win/ $800 to start feature event.

The Indiana Icebreaker will be the first event for the LOLMDS since the DART Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, FL held last month. Don O’Neal of Martinsville, IN comes into the Indiana Icebreaker sitting on top of the Lucas Oil Championship Point Standings. O’Neal, a 3-time series runner-up in the national points standings began his late model career at Brownstown Speedway in 1990 and is the defending champion of the Indiana Icebreaker.

O’Neal’s victory a year ago in this event marked his 52nd career win at Brownstown Speedway. He is now third all-time at the track behind Jim Curry and John Gill in total victories. “We always look forward to coming back to race at Brownstown. We have had a lot of success there in the past, but with the level of talent we have on the Lucas Oil Series, it’s going to be tough to repeat the win. The fans will definitely see an exciting race,” stated O’Neal, driver of the #71 Optima Batteries, MasterSbilt House Car.

Another LOLMDS regular and 4-times series champion, Earl Pearson Jr. of Jacksonville, FL is anticipating another Brownstown barnburner. “We have always seemed to run well there and it’s a track when its racy you can come from the back. There is plenty of room to pass and there are no walls or guardrails to tear up your car,” said Pearson. The driver for Bobby Labonte Racing has four career wins at Brownstown. He is coming off a big $10,000 victory on the final night of the DART Winternationals at East Bay last month. “Kevin Rumley has given the team a big boost since he came
onboard. He completely redesigned the Longhorn Chassis and with the new Chevy engines we have, we feel we are going to have a very good year and excited to get to Brownstown”, Pearson went on to say.

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series has sanctioned the “Indiana Icebreaker” since 2006 at the Tim and Farrah Keithley promoted quarter-mile fairgrounds track. Racing began at Brownstown Speedway in 1952 and has proven to be a great venue for several of the LOLMDS regulars in the past. Two-time series champion, Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN has collected ten (10) wins at the track during his career, while two-time and reigning series champion, Jimmy Owens has won twice. Dennis Erb Jr. of Carpentersville, IL, the only 2-time winner at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, FL last month has three (3) victories in his career at Brownstown Speedway and Steve Francis of Ashland, KY claimed his lone victory back in a 1997 STARS-sanctioned event.

Jimmy Owens Takes First Career Jackson 100 Saturday Night at Brownstown Speedway

September 26th, 2012

BROWNSTOWN, IN- Jimmy Owens of Newport, TN solidified his points lead in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series by sweeping the weekend at Brownstown Speedway as the defending series champion took home $20,000 for winning the 33rd Annual Jackson 100 on Saturday Night. Owens led all 100-laps Industrial Solutions Technology LLC sponsored event.

Steve Francis of Ashland, KY was the only car capable of staying with Owens early on in the race, but Owens’ margin of victory was nearly half-a-lap at the finish. Francis finished third, just ahead of 4-time Jackson 100 winner, Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN, who placed third. Mike Marlar of Winfield, TN survived a spirited battle with Earl Pearson, Jr. of Jacksonville, FL and Don O’Neal of Martinsville, IN to claim the fourth spot.

Owens, who started off the weekend by setting fast time on Friday Night, withstood a side-by-side battle with Terry Casey of New London, WI in the first heat to earn the pole starting spot. Owens took the lead at the start of the race with pressure from Francis for the first 24 laps, until the first caution came out.

The restart for Owens was beneficial because he had reached lapped traffic and that was allowing Francis to stay close. Pearson, who started ninth, climbed into third, and was in the hunt. He began battling Francis for third. There were three more cautions in the race past the halfway mark, but none could slow Owens. Pearson got by Francis for second on lap 63 and held that position until Francis was able to get back around him on a lap 72 restart. Owens continued to stretch his lead out over Francis in the final 25 circuits as he went on to capture his fifth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series race of the season and his 34th all-time in series competition. He joins Hall of Famers Bloomquist and Jeff Purvis as fellow Tennesseans to win the prestigious event. “The car was great all weekend, from the time we unloaded it, the track was good all night, it took a while to get going. I know it was cold out here, but the crew picked the right tires and I just drove it, we had no problems whatsoever,” said the 40-year-old who extended his points lead over O’Neal, who finished sixth.

“I want to thank Mike Reece, my car owner, Reece Monument Company, Gantte Appraisals, Red Line Oil, Sunoco Race Fuels, Midwest Sheet Metal, Ohlins, Hoosier, Keyser and everybody else for making this possible,” said Owens, whose winning car is a Bloomquist Race Cars Ford powered by a Cornett Racing Engine. “I was a little worried when they moved those tires out there on the track during that one caution, I set up the car to run low in the moisture, so we had to change our line entering the corner in turn one, but it didn’t really matter, we were able to pull away from everybody, it feels good to win here at Brownstown again.” In preliminary action, Jimmy Owens set the Red Buck Fast Time amongst the 40 entrants, with a lap of 15.281 seconds. Jared Landers set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 15.563 seconds.

Jimmy Owens, Mike Marlar, Jared Landers and Mike Marlar won their respective Heat Races. John Blankenship and Jonathan Davenport won their respective B-Mains. This weekend, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will return to action with the
9th Annual Lucas Oil “Late Model Knoxville Nationals” at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, IA on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, September 27-29th. For more information, log onto www.knoxvilleraceway.com.

Kent Robinson Races to First Win of 2012; WoO Tripleheader Up Next

May 24th, 2012

Bloomington, Indiana – After flirting with victory lane on several occasions early in 2012 Kent Robinson finally sealed the deal on Saturday night by piloting his #7r JB’s Salvage/Mastersbilt/Jay Dickens Racing Super Late Model to his first win of the season on Saturday night at Brownstown Speedway.

Kent opened his weekend by making the trek to Moler Raceway Park (Williamsburg, Ohio) for the $3,000-to-win, Freedom Fighters 40, which was sanctioned by the American Dirt Racing Association (ADRA). Eighteen cars entered into the event, and via time trials Robinson locked into the pole-sitter’s dash. Unfortunately a flat tire would result in Kent finishing eighth in the dash, which left him starting eighth in the 40 lap feature. He would mount a great rally in the main event to record a second place finish behind race winner, Jason Jameson. Full results are available at www.MolerRacewayPark.com

On the heels of a strong run on Friday night Kent rolled into Brownstown Speedway (Brownstown, Indiana) on Saturday night for a Weekly Racing Series Event, which drew a stout field of 33 competitors. After advancing from the fifth starting spot to a second place finish in the first heat race, Robinson locked into the fifth starting spot for the main event. Early in the feature he would slip as far back as the seventh position before mounting a charge to the front of the field to claim the win on the 1/4 mile oval, which was his first of the 2012 season! He was followed across the finish line by Greg Johnson, Chad Stapleton, Joe Janowski, and Steve Barnett. Full results are available at www.BrownstownSpeedway.com.

“My guys have been working their tails of, and we’ve had a really good car over the past few months. It feels good to finally knock down the first win of the year. With the first one out of the way, I think we can go get some more now,” an excited, Robinson noted.

Kent Robinson Racing will resume their pursuit of the World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year title this Memorial Day weekend, May 25th-27th with a trio of events in Ohio and West Virginia. Action gets underway on Friday night with a $10,000-to-win program at NAPA Wayne County Speedway (Orrville, Ohio). On Saturday evening the brand-new, Bullring Bonanza will be held at Tyler County Speedway (Middlebourne, West Virginia) with a $25,000 winner’s check on the line and over $50,000 in prizes going home with lucky fans. The weekend will conclude on Sunday evening at the recently renovated and reopened I-77 Speedway (Fair Plain, West Virginia) with a $10,000-to-win feature. Kent is currently second in the WoO Rookie of the Year point’s battle and twelfth in the overall tour standings. For more information on the events, please visit www.WoOLMS.com.
