Despite not finishing the consi, Scott received a previous champion's provisional for the 40-lap, $30,000-to-win feature.

In the feature Scott progressively worked his way through the field to register a third-place finish behind Brandon Overton and Kyle Bronson.

The Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer started the weekend with a fourth-place finish before rounding out the event with a $12,000 triumph in Saturday night's finale.

The triumph marked his 12th of the 2018 season.

“I got a good feel in the previous race (earlier on Saturday),” Bloomquist said. “In the past years, we’d look back and we were a little bit tight. So I just left the car freed up, left it alone like it was qualifying. And the stagger in it ended up growing a little bit more than we wanted and the car was jus too free. So we went back and regrouped for the race this evening and made a few adjustments to the car and the stagger. And what else can you say? It was pretty sweet.”

Bloomquist started in the pole position for the 50-lap feature on Saturday night in front of a crowd of more than 20,000, and won in dominant fashion by more than seven seconds.

“This track’s so fast,” Bloomquist said. “You really can’t look around. I didn’t see anybody signaling or giving me any kind of hope of whether I could relax or not. We just raced the whole race just like somebody was right on my ass. I’m looking at the right-rear tire and it’s slick. It could have went maybe 10 more laps. We didn’t ease up at all. But we really weren’t spinning either. The car was hooked up from the drop of the green."

Scott was followed across the finish line by Jonathan Davenport, Brandon Sheppard, Chase Junghans and Tim McCreadie.

With 76 World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series entries on hand, Friday night's program found Scott qualifying second-fastest in his group to earn the pole position for his heat race. He won his heat, and then drew the third-starting position for the 50-lap, $12,000-to-win feature. Curfew limitations forced the feature to be postponed until Saturday afternoon.

When the program resumed Scott jumped to the lead at the drop of the green flag. He paced the field until lap 9, when Brandon Sheppard took control. Over the remainder of the event Bloomquist began to battle the handle as he slipped to a fourth-place finish behind Sheppard, Tim McCreadie and Mike Marlar.

"I don't know what it is because we have no notes going into these first-time tracks," Bloomquist said. "I told the crew when we pulled in that we were a lock for the win. We just came here to rock-and-roll and let her go. This is quite a beautiful facility. The track reminds me a lot of Knoxville. It has the berm on the bottom and you can race on this track. It holds moisture very well. We need to go to more tracks like this. I ran hard out there

It was a good race for the fans. They may have finally got the track to where it's right up there with the best in the country. We are going to keep working hard and maybe we can get to 700 someday."

With 32 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series drivers entered into the event at the state-of-the-art oval, Scott locked into the third-starting spot for the feature, via preliminary action.

Scott methodically worked his way through the field before taking the lead from Josh Richards on lap 31. He held off a hard-charging Brandon Overton in the closing laps to get the win.

"We were good on the restarts and that helped," Bloomquist noted. "This is probably the best shape I have ever seen this track in. We could run low, middle, or the top. We went to the top there towards the end and I think that helped us out a lot. The top was the place to be especially getting around those lapped cars. I want to thank everyone who supports me on this racecar."

Josh Richards, Don O'Neal, and Dennis Erb Jr. completed the Top-5 finishers.

Scott Bloomquist rewrote the history books over the weekend by winning his unprecedented eighth Dirt Late Model Dream. He picked up $100,000 for his seventh win of 2018 in his Reece Monuments #0 Sweet Bloomquist/Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model.

After seeing rain delay the start of the 24th running of the Dirt Late Model Dream, the crown jewel event came to life on Friday afternoon with twin $5,000-to-win events.

With 78 entries on hand Scott started his outing by qualifying fourth fastest. With a four-car invert in effect, he started fourth in his heat race. Bloomquist raced to a runner-up finish in his heat race to earn a spot in the feature redraw, where he pulled the pole.

In the 25-lap, preliminary feature he would race in the Top 5 before crossing the finish line in the third position behind race winner Darrell Lanigan and Jimmy Owens with Jared Landers and Dale McDowell completing the Top 5.

Scott would be forced to scratch from Friday evening's program after a slip and fall on a muddy step forced him to go to the hospital with severe pain in his shoulder and rotator cuff.

“Friday night I slipped in mud and was gonna land on the tongue of my trailer and I reached back … I was gonna land on my back … I was like, ‘whoa’ and it pulled my arm way back,” said Bloomquist. “I hadn’t experienced that before and I felt like it was really done. We went to emergency in Greenville. They X-rayed it and pretty much released me to go back and see my orthopedic surgeon.”

Due to not accumuulating any points from Friday's show, Scott was forced to start on the tail of his heat race on Saturday evening. Despite starting deep in the heat race grid, he charged to finish third, which locked him into the 15th-starting spot for the 100-lap finale.

In the feature Bloomquist had a great car and immediately began charging forward in the pack as the race went green. By lap 25 Scott found himself battling for the lead with Jonathan Davenport, and on lap 40 he surged to the lead for good.

Not even late-race cautions could slow his roll as he raced to a nine-second win in the crown jewel. It was his eighth win in the event, and his seventh win of 2018. He also became the first-ever back-to-back winner in the mega event.

"I really think that I had an even better car in this year's Dream than I had last year.. I think some cars were better than they were then, but … I could do anything I wanted out there,” Bloomquist said. “It was enjoyable. I probably could’ve stood being a little bit tighter, but not on the restarts. It was spot-on. After we’d run a little bit I’d get a little bit free, but I’ll tell you what, it was about as good as you could ask for. Even though I might tail out a little, it still had traction and I still was maneuverable in traffic.”

Dale McDowell, Jonathan Davenport, Bobby Pierce, and Chris Madden completed the Top-5 finishers.

May 26, 2018 - Scott Bloomquist Bags Sixth-Career Show Me 100 Title
1Scott Bloomquist took control of the lead on lap 70 of Saturday night's finale for the 26th annual Lucas Oil Show Me 100 and went on to cruise to his unprecedented sixth event title.

The triumph in the crown jewel marked his first since the race was relocated to Lucas Oil Speedway (Wheatland, Missouri) in 2010.

"We weren't as good as I wanted to be. Jimmy [Owens] was pretty good there. I really didn't see exactly what happened to him. That was unfortunate for him. We were starting to put a little pressure on him. We were trying to find the groove that would work best. It probably would have been a good race at the end."

"It's always better with a clear view of the track. You really aren't watching what he is doing. When you have a guy in front of you, you are always looking for a way around him. You have just got to keep on trying a different line. We could move around quite bit at the end of the race."

Scott started outside front row for the 100-lap, $30,000-to-win finale at the state-of-the-art facility. He pursued Jimmy Owens for the lead until lap 15, when he took the top spot. Bloomquist paced the field until lap 23 when Owens regained the top spot.

Owens paced the field until lap 69, when contact with a lapped car ended his run. Bloomquist inherited the lead and over the remainder of the race drove away from the field to score the win by over three seconds.

The win was his sixth of the year.

Brian Shirley, Mike Marlar, Bobby Pierce, and Chris Simpson completed the Top-5 finishers.

With the triumphant weekend Bloomquist has moved up to second in the latest series' standings. Full results from the weekend as well as complete series standings are available at www.LucasDirt.com.


May 25, 2018 - Scott Bloomquist Wins the Cowboy Classic at Lucas Oil Speedway

Scott started the night by recording the fastest-time in his group to earn the pole-position for his heat race. He followed it up with a flag-to-flag win in his heat to lock into the outside-front-row starting spot for the 45-lap feature.

"The car was really good tonight, we have learned a lot of things about this track in the past and I think we might have finally solved some things. My daughter Ariel is here tonight. She asked me, 'dad, are you ever going to win another race this year?' We have had a lot of second place finishes. I told her I promise I am going to win another one," said the winner in Lucas Oil Victory Lane.

1"After that last caution I saw him [Simpson] down below there. I carried enough momentum there to keep him behind me. I kind of moved around a little bit and that helped. I did not want to block the bottom. Hopefully this is the start of a big weekend. I have never won the Show-Me here, so it would be nice to finally get that one here."

Friday night found the team getting an odd start to the night. Due to an issue with the pill draw protocol, Scott was not allowed to qualify and had to start on the back of his heat. He would only manage a seventh-place finish in his heat race, which sent him to a B-Main.

Not even a broken tie-rod in his B-Main could slow Scott's roll as he charged to the win to lock into the 20th-starting spot for the finale. In the 40-lap, preliminary feature he would race to a third-place finish behind Jimmy Owens and Brian Shirley.

Bloomquist is currently fourth in the latest series' standings. Full results from the weekend as well as complete series standings are available at www.LucasDirt.com.

"We have run really well since Florida," Bloomquist said. "Last weekend, we had a win and a second-place finish, and this weekend a second and a win. The car, the engine, the shocks, everything is working well," said the 54-year-old Bloomquist in Lucas Oil Victory Lane.

"We had good rotation, it carried around the high-line tonight. The car could work low, the middle, or high. I tried to run up high in three and four because my momentum would be really good off the turn-4 corner. When we had to go to the bottom to pass lapped cars we could. Thanks to Randy Sweet and everybody at Sweet Manufacturing."

Scott continues to make up ground in his pursuit of a fourth LOLMDS title. He's now third in the latest standings. Full results from the weekend are available at www.LucasDirt.com.

At the end I just decided to set it high and let it sail. The car got through traffic pretty good. All-in-all I can't say enough about the car and engine combination. Everything was great. This Sweet-Bloomquist car was sweet tonight and the Andy Durham Engine ran perfect. It was another good points night."
