Jackie Boggs Blasts to Lucas Oil Victory at Portsmouth Raceway Park

LOLMDS PR
PORTSMOUTH, OH (August 30) - Jackie Boggs blasted from third to first on a late restart and went on to win the Pepsi 50 River Days Rumble on Saturday Night at Portsmouth Raceway Park. Scott Bloomquist was in control of the race before a caution with 40 laps complete, setting up a thrilling finish in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series-sanctioned event.

Bloomquist had the dominant car from the start of the event, then over the last ten laps he developed fuel-pressure issues. He gave up the lead to Boggs on lap 43. Boggs brought the huge crowd to its feet with his high-side pass of Bloomquist as he pulled away for his third career LOLMDS victory. Steve Francis finished second for the third consecutive time in LOLMDS competition. Jared Landers finished third, followed by Eddie Carrier Jr., and Bloomquist, who faded to fifth at the finish.

"This car was just a frame on Monday morning, we worked all-week on this new Swartz car and I will tell you, this thing is fast," said the winner, afterwards. "I think the paint just dried on the car today," Boggs excitedly said. "We had gone so long without a caution. I was just content to hang on for third. But then the caution came out with ten to go and I thought well maybe we had another chance at Bloomquist."

"I am not sure what happened to him [Bloomquist], but Steve [Francis] and I stayed right with him. His car was either not running right or it had a tire going down, not sure, but we went to the top and drove around him. It's great win for our team, and I see from the crowd reaction, they liked it too. I can't wait until the Dirt Track World Championship Race here in October. We had a real good car here last year and nearly won it... I think this car is better. I want to thank Audie Swartz, Kenny Hemman Racing Engines, McCoy Brothers Logging, Samuel Coal, Brown Medical, Matney's Truck and Trailer, The Weld Shop and BPM Performance."

Francis, who continues his late-season surge, backed up his runner-up finishes at Lawrenceburg and Attica at one of his favorite venues tonight. "We had another solid finish tonight for the Clint Bowyer Racing Team. If I could have gotten by Scott sooner, I might have had a chance at Jackie, but he was gone by the time I cleared Scott. I have to thank Georgia Boot, Peak Antifreeze and Motor Oil, Barry Wright Race Cars, and all of my crew. We are going to get back to victory lane here soon."

Landers rallied to a third-place finish in the last few laps. "We had a good car all night. I really liked that cushion up top. We keep digging here and we are going to get a win. I have to thank Crop Production Services, Bad Boy Mowers, Mark Martin Automotive, and Big Dog Motorsports."

Completing the top ten were John Blankenship, Don O'Neal, Jimmy Owens, Brian Birkhofer, and Earl Pearson Jr.

In preliminary action, Jackie Boggs set the overall Miller Welders Fast Time (Group B) amongst the 34 entrants, with a lap of 14.394 seconds. Earl Pearson Jr. set the fastest time in Group A with a time of 14.427 seconds. Scott Bloomquist, Steve Francis, Jackie Boggs, and Jimmy Owens won their respective heat races. Chris Combs and Don O'Neal won their respective B-Mains.
