Don O’Neal Wins His Fourth Jackson 100 Saturday Night at Brownstown Speedway

September 24th, 2013

BROWNSTOWN, IN- Don O’Neal picked up his fourth career Jackson 100 victory, at the historic Jackson County Fairgrounds bullring. O’Neal took the lead from defending race winner, Jimmy Owens after a lap 68 restart and pulled away from the field for the $15,000 win in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned event.

The 34th Annual Jackson 100 at Brownstown Speedway was also part of the ASi Crown Jewel Cup Presented by DirtonDirt.com. Dustin Linville charged from his ninth starting spot to finish second. John Blankenship came home third, followed by Owens and 23rd starting, Steve Francis rounding out the top five. “I can’t believe it,” said O’Neal, who had missed almost a month of the LOLMDS season after suffering a back injury in August. “This is my home track; it’s great to win here in front of these fans. The track was a little rough with the rain, but it was extremely racy. After that last caution, I don’t know what happened to the 20 car, but once we were out front, it was smooth sailing,” said O’Neal in Lucas Oil Victory Lane for the 33rd time in his career. “I just took a deep breath on that caution, Jimmy was running a good line there, and it was going to be tough to catch him and pass him. When the race restarted I just went by him, and then found a fast line. I have to thank Tader Masters, MasterSbilt Race Cars, Jay Dickens Racing Engines, Optima Batteries, Seubert Calf Ranches, Tarpy Trucking, Superior Cleaning, and Independence Lumber and all of our great product sponsors that make this possible.” O’Neal now ties Scott Bloomquist as the only 4-time winner of the track’s most prestigious race.

The win also marked O’Neal’s 53rd career win at Brownstown, trailing only Jim Curry and John Gill on the track’s all-time win list. Owens grabbed the lead at the start of the 100-lap main event and held the point until he and O’Neal swapped the lead during laps 16-19. Once out in front, Owens looked to be on his way to back-to-back Jackson 100 wins until a fateful caution on lap 68. Owens lost several spots on the restart, dropping back to fifth at one point. Owens rebounded to finish fourth, just ahead of Francis at the finish line. Linville had his best ever LOLMDS finish and was extremely pleased with his effort. “I have to thank Audie Swartz from Swartz Race Cars, Bullock Engines and everybody else for all of their help. To run with Don and to pass the World 100 winner (Blankenship) is just unbelievable. I just love to come up here and race. The track crew did a great job with all the rain they have had in the last couple of days.” Blankenship ran as high as second in the race and had a couple of opportunities to steal the win away from O’Neal, but his main focus was trying to hold off the youngster, Linville. “He (Linville) drove a heck of race; I don’t know where he came from. Jimmy looked like the car to beat there for a while. Once Don got out in front, we were all chasing him.” Francis amazed the capacity-crowd with a Top-5 finish, after his car nearly flipped during his heat race. He was taken to the hospital for tests and was then cleared to race. He took a provisional and started 23rd and came home in fifth.

Completing the top ten were Greg Johnson, Scott Bloomquist, Steve Shaver, Dennis Erb Jr., and Earl Pearson Jr. In preliminary action, John Blankenship set the overall RED BUCK fast time (Group A) amongst the 46 entrants, with a lap of 14.506 seconds. Scott Bloomquist set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 14.549 seconds. Jimmy Owens, Earl Pearson Jr., Don O’Neal, and Dale McDowell won their respective heat races. Greg Johnson and Billy Moyer won their respective B-Mains. Up next for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will be the 10th Annual Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s General Stores at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, IA.

Jared Landers Scores Top 5 at Brownstown; Carolina Crown Next

March 30th, 2013

Batesville, Arkansas- Jared Landers returned to action with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series over the weekend in his #5 Clint Bowyer Motorsports/Peak Motor Oil/Barry Wright/Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model at Brownstown Speedway (Brownstown, Indiana) and came away with a fourth place finish to show for his efforts.

Thirty-seven Super Late Models registered for battle in the $10,000-to-win, 16th Annual Indiana Ice Breaker at the 1/4 mile oval, and in time trials Landers registered the fastest time in his group to earn the pole for his heat race. Contact with an infield, tractor tire early in the heat relegated him to a third place finish. As a result he started tenth on the grid for the 50 lap feature.

During the course of the main event Landers advanced six positions to finish fourth at the checkered flag behind race winner, Dennis Erb Jr., Don O’Neal, and Greg Johnson. Jared is now fifth in the latest series’ standings. Full results from the event and the latest series’ standings are available at www.LucasDirt.com .

This weekend, March 28th-30th, the team will enter the 2nd Annual Carolina Crown at Lancaster Speedway (Lancaster, South Carolina) as Landers looks to improve his finishing position from the 2012 edition of the race by one spot. In last year’s event Landers led in the event before a flat tire forced him pitside. He recovered to battle for the lead late in the event with eventual winner, Scott Autry, before settling for a second place finish. In this year’s $30,000-to-win event he will look for redemption. Practice will be held on Thursday evening with time trial and heat race action on Friday evening, while Saturday’s program will include b-mains and the finale.

Erb is Superb in Winning Indiana Icebreaker at Brownstown Speedway

March 26th, 2013

BROWNSTOWN, IN – Dennis Erb, Jr. came from the eighth starting spot to win the 16th Annual Indiana Icebreaker sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series on Saturday Night at Brownstown Speedway. Erb, took the lead on lap six from Josh McGuire and went unchallenged the rest of the way for the $10,000 victory.

Erb’s fifth career LOLMDS win tonight was also his first series win outside of East Bay Raceway Park in Florida. Don O’Neal finished second, followed by Greg Johnson, Jared Landers, and Bobby Pierce.

“The car was amazing all night; we didn’t change much at all! This was probably the best car I have had here at Brownstown. In the feature, the track was racy from top to bottom. We started on the outside of the fourth row and the top was great, so that’s where I stayed and it didn’t take us long to get to the front,” said Erb,who earned his fourth career win at the South-Central Indiana track.

“The car was good all week at East Bay last month, if not for a few blown tires, we would have won the points, but we had good night tonight and we want to stay with the series all year, if we can find some more funding then that’s what we will do,” said the 40-year-old Erb.

Once Erb was in front there was no catching him. The only caution of the race came out with 20 laps complete, but on the restart, Erb pulled away from his nearest competitors. “I have to thank Bloomquist Race Cars, Kuntz and Company, J&L Scrap Metals and McBride Leasing, and of course my Crew Chief, Heather Lyne.”

Completing the top ten were Darrell Lanigan; Mike Marlar; John Blankenship; Jimmy Owens; and Josh Richards.

In preliminary action, Bobby Pierce set the overall fastest time (Group A) amongst the 37 entrants, with a lap of 14.798 seconds. Jared Landers set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 15.046 seconds. Bobby Pierce, Steve Francis, Josh McGuire, and Brandon Sheppard won their respective Heat Races. Jimmy Owens and Mike Marlar won their respective B-Mains.

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will return to action on Friday, April 6th, with the Southern 50 at Jackson Motor Speedway in Jackson, MS. The following night, Saturday, April 7th, the series makes its way to Lonestar Speedway in Kilgore, TX for the annual High Banks Havoc.
