Bloomquist Goes Back-to-Back in Buckeye State Sweep at Muskingum

ZANESVILLE, OH (July 3) - Scott Bloomquist pulled off a clean sweep of Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series racing in the State of Ohio this Independence weekend, winning the Lumi-Lite Candle Co. 60 on Sunday Night at Muskingum County Speedway. Over the course of two nights, Bloomquist collected over $24,000 in winnings.
Bloomquist started third in the 60-lap main event and fell back to fifth on the opening lap. He gradually made his way to the front, taking the lead from Don O'Neal on lap 33. Bloomquist went on to the victory, and extended his series points lead.
O'Neal finished second, followed by Jared Landers, Earl Pearson Jr., and Brandon Sheppard.
'We put on some tires that were a little older. It took them a while to get going. Once they did, they were pretty good. The car was good. The engine ran super; I'd like to thank Andy Durham for that. We had a really good weekend," said the 52-year-old 2-time series champion, who became the first driver in the eleven appearances by the LOLMDS at the track to become a repeat winner.
"I wasn't that concerned when we fell back a few spots early on. Everybody was really punishing their tires and I didn't want to. I just tried to get some heat in them immediately, I could tell each restart we would get a little better, and eventually we were able to get the lead," said the driver of the Reece Monument Company, Crop Production Services, Sweet-Bloomquist entry.   

Landers bolted out front and led the first 18 circuits until O'Neal charged to the point. O'Neal then held the top spot until lap 33 when Bloomquist forged ahead for good.

"Don got by Jared and I thought Jared was going to get back around him. There was some pretty hard racing up there for the lead. The track was pretty good tonight. You could race all over it. The way that the track started out; with all that loose stuff piled up and real muddy; is why we elected not to hot lap. Usually this track does blow off and slick over, especially around the top. The top stayed really good and smooth," said Bloomquist in Lucas Oil Victory Lane.

O'Neal was looking for his first series win of the season. He had the Clint Bowyer Racing/Peak Antifreeze and Motor Oil car in contention for the win from the start of the race. "I thought I was going to get this Peak car in victory lane tonight. My hat's off to the Zero Team. We made some changes today after last night. We started up front and couldn't stay there. Tonight we passed some cars, so we did a lot better tonight."

Landers followed up his runner-up finish at Portsmouth with another podium finish at Muskingum County. "We got off to a really good start. I kind of got lost after a while. I took off on one of the restarts and left the bottom open for Don. He [O'Neal] had a good car. He needed a good run. Scott just showed us all, but I hung on for third.
"I want to thank Crop Production Services and Mark Martin Automotive. This place is always packed out! I am just glad to be able to run strong in front of this many people, hopefully we made some new fans here tonight."
Completing the top ten were Dennis Erb Jr., Steve Casebolt, Steve Francis, Rod Conley and Mike Benedum.
