Tennessean Scott Bloomquist Breaks Winless Streak In Pennsylvania Friday

Saturday, September 26, 2020 - by Steve Hixson

Multi National Dirt Late Model Champion Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, Tn. snapped a long winless streak Friday with the World of Outlaw Late Model series at Thunder Mountain Speedway in Pennsylvania.

The "No Weak Link's" racer has been slowly recovering from hip replacement surgery this past January and seemed to really feel it climbing gingerly from his Sweet/Bloomquist racecar in Victory Lane to talk with announcer Rick Eshelman. "We're back!!!" exclaimed Bloomquist to the crowd.

"Black Sunshine" went on to graciously thank everyone who's help him over the past few months.

Bloomquist's primary sponsor "Drydene" just announced this week they are the primary sponsor for the Charlotte Dirt Track's "Short Track World Championships" coming Halloween weekend in North Carolina.

Bloomquist and second finishing WoOLMS points leader Brandon Sheppard of Illinois along with 30 plus race teams will be back at it Saturday for night #2 at TMS.

All WoOLMS events are broadcast live on the internet on DIRTVision for subscribers.

NASCAR’s Clint Bowyer's dirt late model team piloted by Josh Richards (# 14) of West Virginia won the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model series feature at Brownstown Speedway in Indiana Friday. Saturday's finale will be broadcast live on Lucas Oil Racing TV internet network for subscribers Saturday night.

New Stadium Does Not Pass The Smell Test - And Response

Lookouts average attendance in 2018 (all that I could quickly find) was 3,206 per game and ranked 74th among ... (click for more)

My career was in the public schools of several states. I never drew the connection to funding for schools and achievement until later. This is what I have found.

The answer to that should be a resounding "yes." ... (click for more)
