Scott Bloomquist Bests Outlaws in Mountain Outlaw 50 Win
Richards and Madden battle side-by-side the entire race

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (May 7) - Scott Bloomquist stole the show Saturday night, winning The Mountain Outlaw 50 at Smoky Mountain Speedway. Bloomquist joins Dale McDowell and Willie Milliken as non-series opponents to beat the full time World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series drivers, a streak that is now extended to three-straight race weekends.

But Bloomquist is also in good company within the series. The former World of Outlaws wheelman captured his 29th win in the series, tying him for sixth all-time - it is his first series win in 2016. Bloomquist won the event last season.

“We’ve been working pretty hard here,” said Bloomquist, who started third. “We tried a lot of different stuff. Last year we had a good year, but not quite what we really wanted. Fortunately, it forces you to get to work.”

Bloomquist began the 50-lap feature on the inside and seldom left the most-inner groove. It was not until lap 9 when Bloomquist’s No. 0 Crop Production Services/ Reese Monument Co. machine made its way toward the lead. Bloomquist, who secured the bottom line, undertook Josh Richards for second place. Richards fell to fourth the next lap, while Bloomquist used lapped traffic to bypass leader Casey Roberts, to take the number-one spot.

Bloomquist used a lapped car as separation from Roberts’ No. 101 Bad Boy Buggies/ Cushman Paint & Body Longhorn car. Bloomquist and Roberts left turn 4 three-wide - however, Bloomquist built more speed heading into turn 1 and prevailed.

Thereon, Bloomquist expanded his lead, at one point, four seconds over second place.

Bloomquist however, did not finish the race unscathed.

“Right there at the end with Darrell Lanigan...he came down pretty hard,” said Bloomquist about the contact in turn 1. “We got a little damage on the right side from that but other than that, we had no incidents. We could run anywhere on the race track.”



Madden on the other hand, had neither separation nor an easy road for the runner-up position. When Richards’ No. 1 Valvoline/ Seubert Calf Ranches Rocket machine fell back to fourth place on lap 10, it linked the two together for the remainder of the race.

“We didn’t get a good start – spun the tires which put us behind,” said Madden, who started sixth. “Me and Josh must’ve ran the whole 50 laps side-by-side. Every time I looked down I saw him.”

The two swapped positions several times throughout the race but uncharacteristic to the Bloomquist-Roberts battle, never lost ground to lapped traffic. With 20 laps to go, Madden nearly wedged his car under a lapped car to create the separation, but Richards maintained the fraction-of-a-second distance.

Though they were side-by-side at most points in the race, Richards could not capitalize and settled for a third place finish.

“We had a really great battle,” said Richards, who started second. “We were able to run up with Chris and Scott, and keep them in our sights. I feel like we had a second-place car. We were at the wrong angle when I thought I had him a couple times.”

Richards said it was a slow start to the evening, eventually making up for it outside of the first “five or six” laps. But Richards, who rarely competes at larger courses, was satisfied with the finish on the 4/10-mile oval.
