GREENWOOD, NE – Scott Bloomquist held off a late race charge from Jimmy Owens to win the 5th Annual Silver Dollar Nationals at I-80 Speedway on Saturday Night. It was Bloomquist’s second straight Silver Dollar Nationals victory. He earned $32,000 for his efforts in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and Lucas Oil MLRA sanctioned event.
Bloomquist passed Jonathan Davenport for the lead on lap 31. Owens was gaining rapidly on Bloomquist in the closing laps and came within inches of getting by Bloomquist coming out of turn 4 for the final time, but Bloomquist managed to cross the finish line just ahead of him. Jesse Stovall charged from 19th to finish third, followed by Gregg Satterlee, and and Bloomquist teammate Jared Landers.
“We had a good car all night, we were able to pass the 6 car [Davenport] and not a lot of people have done that recently. We were a little worried about the track early on. They went out and worked on it before the feature and we could run anywhere on it. I was able to move my car around pretty easily. Traffic was not too bad of a problem. I want to thank the crowd for coming out tonight and the Kosiski family, they do a heck of a good job promoting this place.”
Congratulations to Scott and the entire team on yet another amazing performance. As always…Scott relies on Hypercoils for all his suspension spring needs!
