The early season success of Scott Bloomquist continued Saturday night with a dominating performance at the Indiana Icebreaker. Scott Bloomquist would capture the lead from Scott Francis on lap 8 in front of the packed crowd at Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana and would lead the remainder of the 42 laps capturing his second straight win the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series. It would be Bloomquist’s third win of 2011 in the series.
“The car was superb out there tonight, you could run anywhere. We went with the Chevrolet powered Roush-Yates engine tonight and it didn’t miss a beat, and this was a brand new car. We’ve always enjoyed coming up here to race, and with all the rain they had I didn’t know how it would turn out, but it was racy all night. We had a good race there with Francis for a while, and I was hoping there wouldn’t be any cautions the way we were running. We handled traffic pretty well, and everybody gave each other plenty of room,” said Bloomquist.
The night would start on a high note for Rohn Moon as he would turn a lot of heads by capturing the Red Buck Cigar Fast Time in qualifying when he would lap the speedway in 14.264. Moon however would run into some bad luck and not be able to transfer into the Main event by either is heat race or the B-main.
After 7 events in the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series Scott Bloomquist leads the series standings by 10 points over “The Real Deal” Don O’Neal. Up next for the popular late model touring series is a double header weekend in Pennsylvania when the series will visit Bedford Speedway in Bedford, PA on April 29th. Then on Saturday Night, April 30th at Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex in Markleysburg, PA. Both events will pay $10,000 to win.
