Scott Bloomquist is red hot in the Lucas Oil Series
Earl Pearson Jr.; in the Dunn-Benson Ford/Lucas Oil/Longhorn Chassis; finished second, followed by Brandon Sheppard in the Best Performance Motorsports/Rocket Chassis. Completing the top five were Gregg Satterlee, and Dennis Erb Jr.
Bloomquist set a new track record for Late Models at Lawrenceburg in Miller Welders Time Trials, then went on to dominate his heat race, before finally capturing his second career win at the facility. “I lost my power steering near the end. We didn’t dare get up on that cushion. We could lean on it, but without power steering it’s extremely difficult to drive these cars. It takes about everything you have. I am glad that one’s over!”
“We made sure that we had some traction coming off of turn four. If you slide across there, it wasn’t too bad. The cautions somewhat helped keep the engine cooled down. We got to about 230 or 240 degrees. The humidity tonight didn’t help with some of the issues the other drivers had.”
