WAVERLY, OH – Scott Bloomquist took the lead on lap 48 from Brandon Sheppard and then held off the field in a three-lap dash to the finish to win in the Buckeye Nationals Saturday Night at Atomic Speedway. Bloomquist earned $50,000 for his fourth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season.
“We’re pretty satisfied with this car, to say the least. We’ve only run this car twice. Those guys [Sheppard and Davenport]; they drive hard and they make you work for it,” said the winner, who took his third LOLMDS victory in the last four events.
When asked about the last three laps of green flag racing after the caution, Bloomquist responded. “Well I can’t really say what I was thinking because when I saw his [Davenport’s] number on the scoreboard in second I knew I had to really get tough and not make any mistakes, and we didn’t.”
Everyone at Hyperco & MW Industries congratulates Scott and the entire team on their second crown jewel win of the 2016 season. As always…Scott relies on Hypercoils for the performance needed to win the big ones!
