Scott Bloomquist Dominates for $20,000 at Virginia Motor Speedway

JAMAICA, VA – The Ultimate Super Late Model Series along with the Fastrak Pro Late Model series rolled into the 1/2 mile dirt track with twenty-three supers and twenty-two crate late models signed in for the 41st annual USA 100 at Virginia Motor Speedway.The biggest name there was National Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Scott Bloomquist coming to town hunting for thr $20,000 payout for first place.

Bloomquist went out in the first group of cars and laid down a 16.671 second lap, just slightly off the track record of 16.509. In group two Earl Pearson Jr ran a 17.267 to grab the pole in his heat race and in group three Dale McDowell ran a 17.282. The heat races went quickly without any major incident and all the pole sitters keeping their top spots to start 1-2-3 in the 60-lap feature.

In the feature the Bloomquist jumped out to a lead early on and faced no real opposition through the race. Just fifteen laps in he was starting to lap cars but that was stopped on lap-18 for the 49 of Johnathan Davenport losing his driveshaft on the racing surface. Coming to the checkers the battle for second place heated up with McDowell and Pearson Jr making contact and Pearson able to take the position. In victory lane Bloomquist confirmed that he was slowing down slightly as his car lost a cylinder during the race, but he was still able to cruise to the finish for his first ULTIMATE Series win. Tyler Millwood finished fourth in the race putting him into first in points after Davenport was not able to finish. In fifth was Kenny Moreland who worked all the way up from starting 22nd in the twenty-three car field.

In the Fastrak series Justin Williams set the overall fast time with a 18.798 second lap out of group two. In group one it was Matthew Nance with a 18.956 and in group three Matthew Quade ran a 19.006. Just like in the ULTIMATE series all the pole setters defended their top positions through their heat races.

In their main the racing was full of lots of three wide racing action and a few cautions that kept the field pretty close to each other. The biggest accident happened on lap thirty with three cars getting collected into the guard rail to set up a ten lap run to the finish. Ross Bailes got a great restart off the single file line and looked to be cruising to his win. Benji Hicks started reeling him in with four laps remaining but wound up finishing a half second behind Bailes. Unfortunately for Bailes he was light on the scales and Hicks would inherit the win. In Victory Lane a very emotional Hicks and family dedicated the win to his grandmother who passed away two years ago. With the win Hicks holds a two point lead over Jensen Ford in the Southeast Touring division of Fastrak.

USA 100 at Virginia Motor Speedway Falls to Rain Again

_BloomquistJamaica, VA – After an 1 ½ hour rain delay and a yeoman’s effort at trying to get the racing surface back into shape officials of Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway and the Ultimate Super Late Model Series had to make the difficult decision to cancel the $20,000 to win 40th Annual Aaron’s USA 100 presented by Commonwealth Motorsports. This is the second time this year that the USA 100 has fallen to rain.

“We did all we could do to try and race tonight, we can’t thank the fans and competitors that came out to support us tonight for their support and patience throughout the night. We wanted desperately to get the USA 100 and the final race of the Colonial Clash Championship presented by Dirt Nation in tonight,” commented track owner Bill Sawyer.

The day looked promising with a packed pit area for the USA 100. After hot laps for the Modifieds, FASTRAK Pro Late Models and two sessions of Ultimate Super Late Model Series hot laps the rains came and stuck around for an hour and a half. Track and Series officials waited out the rain and then worked to get the track into racing shape. With the high humidity the more the track staff ran the track in the more moisture came to the top making for a very dangerous situation. It was determined at that time that there was no way to get the track back thus, forcing the cancellation.

“You can’t do anything about Mother Nature. The track did an outstanding job trying to get this race in tonight for our Ultimate Super Late Model and FASTRAK competitors, you can’t ask any more of a track staff, “ commented FASTRAK / Ultimate Super Late Model Series Owner Stan Lester.

Lester added, “I hate that we couldn’t get in the final race of the Colonial Clash Championship but we did pay out the point fund to those that followed the mini-series. I also hate that we couldn’t honor Dale Hollidge as the Colonial Clash Championship Champion on the front stretch. I have to thank the track staff for trying to get this in and the drivers for their patience during the evening”.

The speedway will return to racing next Saturday August 13 for MetroCast Night and week twelve of the Aaron’s Dirt Series Championship season featuring the Victory Lap Late Models, Budweiser Modifieds, Truckin Thunder Sportsman and Collision One Limited Stock Cars in action.

Competitor gates for Saturday August 13th will open at 4pm with spectator gates opening at 5pm. On track activities will begin at 6:30pm with hot laps.

Bill Sawyer’s Virginia Motor Speedway is a ½ mile dirt oval track is located on U.S. Route 17, eight miles north of Saluda, VA and 25 miles south of Tappahannock, VA in Jamaica, VA. The speedway is just a short drive from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Southern Maryland and the Hampton Roads area.
