Scott Bloomquist Bags Jackson 100 at Brownstown

September 27th, 2016

BROWNSTOWN, IN – Scott Bloomquist led 97 of the 100 laps on Saturday Night at Brownstown Speedway, winning his sixth career Jackson 100. He earned $20,000 for winning the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned event. Bloomquist passed Dennis Erb Jr. for the lead early in the race and was briefly challenged by Darrell Lanigan and Jimmy Owens. Bloomquist’s Crop Production Services, Reece Monument Company, Mark Martin Automotive, Durham Racing Engines, Sweet-Bloomquist Chassis outran Owens, Lanigan, Tim McCreadie, and Chris Simpson for the win.

“The first few times we came here, we didn’t make the race, but gradually over time we got better. It’s completely different dirt than what we were winning on in the South at that time. The crowd has always been supportive of us up here and it’s a track you have to be smooth to drive on,” said the winner afterwards in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. “The car was very good all night long; in the heat race it would handle anywhere on the track. When they went out and worked on the track before the main event, I am sure it helped us. Our car was able to maneuver the entire 100 laps without any difficulty. When we got into traffic late, it was still race-able.”

Bloomquist was challenged only on restarts by Lanigan and then by Owens as they were able to stay close to the 52-year-old Hall-of-Famer, seeking his third career LOLMDS title. As the race wore on with several long green flag runs, Bloomquist proved his dominance. Owens was pleased with his runner-up finish. “We had a good car at Knoxville last week, but didn’t get the result we wanted to. This track has always been fun to race on and with the crowd on hand that they had tonight, it makes it ever better. I thought I had a good chance to stay with Scott; and we did for several laps; but a couple of times I skated up the track and that hurt our chances.”

Lanigan had one of his best finishes ever at Brownstown and felt that he had a strong car for the entire race. “We keep working on this piece and it just seems to get better and better. To come to Brownstown and run third with these guys tells us how far we have come. I’d like to give a big thanks to everybody at Clint Bowyer Racing and Georgia Boot for their support.” Completing the Top Ten were: Dennis Erb Jr., Don O’Neal, Dustin Linville, Cody Mahoney, and Hudson O’Neal.

In preliminary action, Steve Francis set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 42 entrants, with a lap of 13.219 seconds. Cody Mahoney set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 13.535 seconds. Dennis Erb Jr., Don O’Neal, Darrell Lanigan, and Scott Bloomquist won their respective heat races. Devin Gilpin and Michael Chilton won their respective B-Mains.

Thomas Thrashes Field in Flag to Flag Brownstown Rout

May 25th, 2016

Just a mere month after combining forces, Kevin Thomas, Jr. and the 4J Motorsports team found USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship victory lane Saturday night at Brownstown Speedway, leading wire-to-wire in a caution-free affair at the series’ first visit to the southern Indiana quarter-mile dirt oval since 2011.

Making just their third series start together, including a 3rd at Gas City (Ind.) I-69 Speedway one night prior, Thomas began the 30-lap feature from the pole position in the number 4J alongside Thomas Meseraull.
From the drop of the green flag, Thomas and his 4J Motorsports/Franklin Equipment – CEP Concrete/DRC/Chevy were a rocket ship on the cushion as the Cullman, Alabama driver rode the topside like a rail. By lap 12, Thomas has already made his way to the backmarkers, surpassing them with ease as he built his advantage over nearest challenger, Meseraull, to a full-straightaway by the midway point.

However, Brady Bacon was the man on the move, swiping the second spot from Meseraull with an inside move in the first turn 10 laps from the finish. Trying to claw his way back into the hunt after starting eighth, Bacon’s only hope down the stretch was for a caution, which would help close the interval between him and leader Thomas, thereby setting up a run for the checkered. With just a few laps to go, a body panel on the car of leader Thomas became dislodged, hanging loose and flapping in the breeze as the final laps wound down. A potential debris caution loomed if the body panel ripped loose and fell onto the track’s surface, which would negate Thomas’s substantial margin and, in turn, benefit Bacon. But it was not to be as the body panel held on while Kevin Thomas, Jr. laid the lumber to the 22-car field, leading flag-to-flag to earn his first series victory in 15 months, defeating Bacon, Dave Darland, Meseraull, C.J. Leary, 2010 Brownstown USAC winner Brady Short, KSE Racing Products/B & W Auto Mart “Hard Charger” Robert Ballou, Aaron Farney, Tyler Courtney and Kyle Cummins.

Saturday night marked the first time in five years that two different teams won their first ever series features in consecutive events. Todd Keen (whose car won with Scotty Weir at Gas City on Friday) and 4J Motorsports won back-to-back this weekend. Hank Byram (with driver Hunter Schuerenberg at Gas City) and the Baldwin Brothers (with driver Chris Windom at Bloomington (Ind.) Speedway) accomplished the feat in 2011.

Thomas became the ninth different driver to win a feature through 11 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car events during the 2016 season, collecting his first series victory since February of 2015 at Eastbay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida. “This is the most exciting win I think I’ve ever had, besides my first one,” Thomas exclaimed. “These guys all have day jobs and they work their butts off and tune on this car three or four hours a night, week in and week out. I’m just pumped for my team. My car owner, Jeremy (Ottinger), told me a few weeks ago that he’s never been part of a USAC win; I told him, ‘that’s going to change.’ I didn’t know it
was going to happen this fast, but I’m just so excited I can’t even express the feelings running through my body right now. It’s just a great experience and I’m so glad I could do it with this team. I’ve found my comfort level with this car pretty quickly. I like running the top here (at Brownstown), but I’ve always had
trouble being able to hold it and not slip over the edge. Brownstown gave us a great track tonight and gave us a cushion with something to lean on.”

Brady Bacon, of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma claimed a second place finish for the second consecutive night in his Dynamics, Inc./Mean Green – Lykins Oil/Triple X/Williams Mopar, which nudged his point lead to 19 over Meseraull in the new standings as the series heads into next Wednesday’s 46th “Tony Hulman Classic” at the Terre Haute (Ind.) Action Track.

“We had the best car the last half of the race, but you can’t afford to start eighth with no cautions, especially with this USAC field being as tough as it is,” Bacon said. “You can’t just charge up through there, especially with KT having as good of a car as he had. We were catching him slowly, but surely, but we ran out of laps and he never made a mistake. Our car was good and has been night-in and night-out and we’re really gaining some momentum. We’ve been able to go pretty good on all different kinds of tracks, so all our hard work is paying off. We’re starting to tretch our legs a little bit and, hopefully, we can keep riding this high now that we’re getting into the bulk of the season.”

Lincoln, Indiana’s Dave Darland came home third in his Jeff Walker-Curb-Agajanian Racing/Jam-It-In Storage – Hoosier Tire/Maxim/Claxton for, by far, his best finish in USAC competition at Brownstown after recording finishes of 18th, a DNQ and a 23rd in his three previous visits. “I had a lot of fun out there tonight,” Darland said. “Brownstown did a great job with the racetrack tonight.”

Kent Robinson Wins Ultimate BoB Shootout at Brownstown

April 26th, 2016

Bloomington, Indiana – Kent Robinson topped a wild, three-car battle for the lead to score the $3,000 victory with the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Series at Brownstown Speedway on Saturday night in his Club 29 Race Car #7r JB’s Salvage/ Jay Dickens Racing Engine Super Late Model.

“That’s the best I’ve seen this place in a long time,” said an exhausted Robinson in victory lane. “(Greg) Johnson and Devin (Gilpin) made me work hard for that one. This place hasn’t always been kind to me. Tonight, I just made my mind up that I was definitely going to win this one, and got up on the wheel and made it happen.”

Making the trip to Brownstown Speedway (Brownstown, Indiana) on Saturday night, Kent Robinson was one of 36 Super Late Models signed in for the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Series (UBoB) sanctioned event at the famed, ¼-mile oval. Via a heat race victory, Robinson earned the pole position for the $3,000-to-win feature. The main event would prove to be a dogfight at the front of the pack with Devin Gilpin, Kent Robinson, and Greg Johnson racing three-wide at times for the lead as the trio took turns in the top spot. Regaining the lead from Johnson on the white flag lap, Kent went on to pick up his first victory of season with Devin Gilpin, Greg Johnson, Dustin Linville, and Michael Chilton rounding out the top five. For more results from this event, please visit www.UltimateSupers.com/BOBHome.html .

This weekend, April 29-30, Kent has a pair of events scheduled. Action opens on Friday night at Bloomington Speedway (Bloomington, Indiana) with the 3rd Annual JB Robinson Memorial, which pays homage to Kent’s late father, JB. Robinson will look to defend his title in the $2,000-to-win event, which is sanctioned by the Summit Racing Equipment American Modified Series.

Pearson Takes Third Career Indiana Icebreaker at Brownstown Speedway

March 22nd, 2015

BROWNSTOWN, IN – Earl Pearson Jr. claimed his third Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Indiana Icebreaker on Saturday Night at Brownstown Speedway. In front of a standing-room-only crowd, Pearson took the lead on lap two from Devin Moran and led the rest of the way for his second LOLMDS victory of the season in the Carlton and Kemp Lamm, Dunn-Benson Ford, Lucas Oil Products-sponsored Black Diamond Chassis.

Scott Bloomquist moved past Moran on lap 31 and chased down Pearson, but never found enough room to overtake him. Moran finished third, followed by Jimmy Owens, and the defending race winner, Don O’Neal.

“I knew getting to the front was critical,” said the winner afterwards in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. “It’s Kemp Lamm’s birthday, so what a way to celebrate by winning here at Brownstown! With all the bad winter weather they have had here, they did a good job getting the track smooth. They had a heck of a crowd here tonight.”

“I wanted to get the jump on Moran quickly. The car felt good all night. The heat race we ran was a good one, and winning that sure helped us tonight, because we were able to start on the front row. It’s great to win with the Lamms being here. Andy Durham builds a great engine and I want to thank him for all of the horsepower he is providing us this year.”

Bloomquist; in one of his best runs of the season on the LOLMDS tour; was pleased with his runner-up finish. “Our car hasn’t been that bad this year. We just haven’t had the finishes to show for it. We needed a good run here tonight and we got it. I didn’t know if I could get around Moran. Once I was able to do so, I tried to run down Earl. We caught him there, but with passing at a premium, we just had to settle for second and get a good finish.”

“I want to thank all of my sponsors this year. We have several new ones including Reece Monument Company, Mark Martin Automotive, Sorbera Chiropractic, and Horton Coal. Hopefully we can build on our momentum from this race and get back in the points chase.”

Moran, who last year had an 18-win season, was looking for his first-ever win at Brownstown. He started on the pole and led the opening lap. “I thought maybe tonight was the night we could get that first win here. I tried my best to hold Earl off, but he had enough momentum on the outside to get by me. I slipped just enough later on to allow Bloomquist to get by, but we will gladly take a top three here. It’s the best we have ever finished here. I want to thank Dow Cameron Oil and Gas, Eddie’s Sunoco, and Donnie Moran Driving School for all of their help. To run third with these guys, I am tickled to death.”

Completing the top ten were Chris Simpson, Brandon Sheppard, Eddie Carrier Jr., Steve Casebolt, and Steve Francis. In preliminary action, Jimmy Owens set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 41 entrants, with a lap of 14.108 seconds. Jonathan Davenport set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 14.384 seconds. Devin Moran, Scott Bloomquist, Earl Pearson Jr., and Don O’Neal won their respective heat races. Kent Robinson and Matt Westfall won their respective B-Mains.

Bloomquist; in one of his best runs of the season on the LOLMDS tour; was pleased with his runner-up finish. “Our car hasn’t been that bad this year. We just haven’t had the finishes to show for it. We needed a good run here tonight and we got it. I didn’t know if I could get around Moran. Once I was able to do so, I tried to run down Earl. We caught him there, but with passing at a premium, we just had to settle for second and get a good finish.”

“I want to thank all of my sponsors this year. We have several new ones including Reece Monument Company, Mark Martin Automotive, Sorbera Chiropractic, and Horton Coal. Hopefully we can build on our momentum from this race and get back in the points chase.”

Moran, who last year had an 18-win season, was looking for his first-ever win at Brownstown. He started on the pole and led the opening lap. “I thought maybe tonight was the night we could get that first win here. I tried my best to hold Earl off, but he had enough momentum on the outside to get by me. I slipped just enough later on to allow Bloomquist to get by, but we will gladly take a top three here. It’s the best we have ever finished here. I want to thank Dow Cameron Oil and Gas, Eddie’s Sunoco, and Donnie Moran Driving School for all of their help. To run third with these guys, I am tickled to death.”

Completing the top ten were Chris Simpson, Brandon Sheppard, Eddie Carrier Jr., Steve Casebolt, and Steve Francis. In preliminary action, Jimmy Owens set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 41 entrants, with a lap of 14.108 seconds. Jonathan Davenport set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 14.384 seconds. Devin Moran, Scott Bloomquist, Earl Pearson Jr., and Don O’Neal won their respective heat races. Kent Robinson and Matt Westfall won their respective B-Mains.

Scott Bloomquist Wins Record Fifth Jackson 100 on Saturday Night at Brownstown Speedway

September 23rd, 2014

BROWNSTOWN, IN- Scott Bloomquist continued his hot streak this month by winning the 35th Annual Jackson 100 on Saturday Night at Brownstown Speedway. Bloomquist steered his Ole Smoky Moonshine, Andy Durham-powered, Sweet-Bloomquist car to victory lane in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series sanctioned event, earning a $20,000 pay day.

Bloomquist took the lead for good on the 11th lap from Steve Francis and led the rest of the way for the victory. Don O’Neal, who like Bloomquist, was looking for his fifth win in the crown jewel event, came home in second. O’Neal has now retaken the LOLMDS Championship Points lead by 35 points over Jimmy Owens, who finished 12th. Chris Simpson charged from 14th to finish third. New track record holder, Mike Marlar was fourth followed by 17th place starter, Dale McDowell.

“Brownstown is one of my favorite race tracks, without a doubt. It’s a lot of fun to come up here and race. They have changed the track here in the last year and it seems to make for better racing. I first came here in the late 80′s and didn’t make this race the first time I tried. As we came back year after year, we kept getting better and better. We have a lot of fans up this way and hope everyone enjoyed the show tonight”, stated Bloomquist in victory lane.

“We had a good race with Steve [Francis] there early on. We went back-and-forth a few times until I was finally able to pull away from him. Some of those cautions were pretty timely, and they cleared out the track. Our car was just fantastic on the restarts. The race track stayed really good all night. Our car could pretty much run where I wanted it to. The top was dominant early on and as the race wore on, I could run high, low, or the middle. We have had a great run here lately winning the World 100 and now the Jackson 100. It’s on to another of my favorite places to run at in Knoxville, Iowa. I was born in Iowa and that race has been a special race from day one and everybody will know that we were there,” said the winner, afterwards.

A terrific battle went down to the end between O’Neal and Simpson as O’Neal just edged out the Iowa driver for the spot. “We had a really good car, but the Zero car is on a roll. We didn’t have anything for him. We are really happy though with second and it’s been a good night overall. We got the points lead back, but there are still four races to go. We have to be on top of our game, because I know the 20 team will be as well,” said the driver of Peak Antifreeze and Motor Oil, Clint Bowyer Racing, Barry Wright Race Cars number 5.

Simpson, in his best ever run at Brownstown, was pleased with his effort. “This is a brand new car. We have only been here three times and this is our best run. To finish that strong with these guys, man that’s great. Next week they will be on my home turf at Knoxville and we will give it our best shot to come home with a win there,” said the driver of the Cheap Cars. Simpson Farms, Five Star Race Shop Service #32.

Completing the top ten were Earl Pearson Jr., Dennis Erb Jr., Jonathan Davenport. Gregg Satterlee and Steve Francis.

In preliminary action, Mike Marlar set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the 47 entrants, with a lap of 13.263 seconds. Jonathan Davenport set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 13.370 seconds. Brad Neat, Steve Casebolt, Steve Francis, and Scott Bloomquist won their respective heat races. Dale McDowell and Jason Hughes won their respective B-Mains.

Don O’Neal Wins Indiana Icebreaker

March 24th, 2014

BROWNSTOWN, IN – Don O’Neal raced to his fifth career Indiana Icebreaker win on Saturday Night at Brownstown Speedway. It was O’Neal’s first triumph for Clint Bowyer Racing and his 34th Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory and his 54th career win at Brownstown Speedway. O’Neal took the lead from Eddie Carrier, Jr. on lap eleven and led the remainder of the race. Carrier finished second followed by Steve Francis, Scott Bloomquist, and Kent Robinson. The 50-lap feature went caution-free.

“It’s always good to come here and win at Brownstown. This is where I started my Late Model career and it’s the first time I have won here in a Barry Wright Race Car. I want to thank the fans for coming out tonight. I would say they saw a great feature race. I have to thank Clint Bowyer, Lance and Barry Wright, my crew chief Jeremy Justice, and everybody else on the crew. The car was phenomenal!” exclaimed O’Neal in Lucas Oil Victory Lane. “I have to thank all of my sponsors, Peak Antifreeze and Motor Oil, Crawford Supply, Traeger Grills, Cometic Gasket, Ohlins, Georgia Boot and Clements Racing Engines.”

Carrier was seeking his first ever win at the quarter-mile track. He paced the field early on and was a strong contender for the win, but O’Neal made his way around Carrier on lap eleven. “To run second here to Don O’Neal is quite a statement,” said Carrier, who was looking for a clean sweep of the racing activities at Brownstown. “This Rocket car has been good all-year long at Golden Isles, East Bay, and here tonight. I thought we could get it done! We set fast time, won our heat, and led early, but O’Neal was just too tough. I have to thank Carl Grover for giving me this opportunity; we are off to a real good start this season.”

While O’Neal and Carrier were firmly entrenched in first and second a terrific battle for third, fourth, and fifth was ongoing throughout the entire race. Francis, who started 11th, climbed to third after a torrid battle between Bobby Pierce and Scott Bloomquist allowed Francis to clear both of them with 17 laps remaining.

“We got it going a little too late,” said Francis afterwards. “We probably needed a couple of cautions early-on to help us. To run first and third for Clint Bowyer Racing is awesome. We will take this success and head to the next race. This Georgia Boot Team needed a good run tonight and we got it.”

Completing the top ten were Pierce, Jeep VanWormer, Earl Pearson Jr., Ray Cook, and Devin Moran. With his win tonight, O’Neal took over the series championship point lead for the first time in 2014.

In preliminary action, Eddie Carrier Jr. set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group A) amongst the ­45 entrants, with a lap of 14.533 seconds. Scott Bloomquist set the fastest time in Group B with a time of 14.989 seconds. Eddie Carrier Jr., Don O’Neal, Scott Bloomquist, and Earl Pearson Jr. won their respective heat races. Duane Chamberlain and Shelby Miles won their respective B-Mains.
