Lucas Oil Series: Red Hot Bloomquist Roars to Fourth Straight at Roaring Knob

James Essex

MARKLEYSBURG, Pa. - April 30. Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, Tenn. continued to be the man to beat as he recorded his fourth consecutive Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win on Saturday at Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex  Bloomquist took the lead on lap four from Chris Wall and went unchallenged for his 31st career series win. Earl Pearson Jr. finished second, followed by Don O'Neal, Jimmy Owens, and Jared Hawkins.

 

Wall led the first three circuits before he drifted up the track on lap four, and allowed Bloomquist to slip by. A string of cautions from lap nine through lap 13 kept the field bunched up, but Bloomquist would quickly extend his lead after each restart.

Steve Francis moved past Wall on lap ten to take over second, but Wall regained the spot two laps later. Francis was undeterred and the veteran driver raced back into second on lap 14.  The top five remained the same for the next ten circuits with Bloomquist out in front followed by Francis, Wall, Jared Landers, and Pearson.

 

After a caution came out just past the halfway mark, several cars would change positions in the top five and Wall and Francis fell out of winning contention, but Bloomquist easily cruised on to the $10,000 victory in his Bloomquist Race Cars Ford, powered by a Roush-Yates Engine.

"The car was just right all night long, we are just on a roll here since Florida, and the I can't thank enough all of sponsors and the product sponsors that support our race team Base Racing Fuels, Sweet Manufacturing, Hoosier Tires and everyone else. Usually we get on a late season win streak, but here early on, everything is just clicking, the series is tougher than ever before, and to beat these guys it takes a lot of hard work. Tommy Hicks (his crew chief) and everybody on the team, thanks," said the 47-year-old who continues to lead the championship point standings.
