The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) rolled into La Salle Speedway (La Salle, Illinois) on Thursday evening for a $10,000-to-win event. Josh Richards overtook Scott Bloomquist for the lead near the race’s midway point. The West Virginia driver looked to be on his way to victory before spinning from the lead in the closing laps.

Bloomquist inherited the lead and the 3-time defending series champion went on to register the victory. Tennessee’s Mike Marlar finished in the runner-up spot, while Illinois racer’ Dennis Erb Jr. rounded out the Top 3.
