Earl Pearson Jr. Rallies to Win LOLMDS Super Bowl of Racing Finale
Clay By the Bay and BRP Up Next
Shreveport, Louisiana (02/04/19) – Earl Pearson Jr. enjoyed a great start to the 2019 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) 2019 campaign during the weekend’s RhinoAg Super Bowl of Racing. The pilot of the Black Diamond Racecars House Car/ Lucas Oil #1 DriveEtch.com/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model raced to a runner-up finish in the opener before surging to the $12,000 victory in the finale.
In Lucas Oil Victory Lane on Saturday night, Pearson first dedicated the win to his car owner Ronnie Stuckey. "He's been awful sick the past few months, but he’s turned the corner and is feeling a lot better. This one's for him. It's always great to win here for my home fans. Me, Scott [Bloomquist] and [Jonathan] Davenport had a heck of a race," said Pearson before the cheers of the fans at the track, which is less than an hour from his home in Jacksonville, Florida.
"Scott just got caught up there with all the lapped traffic. Our car has been good all weekend. Thanks to Lucas Oil and Sunoco and all my guys who came out to help with weekend. It's a dream come true to win here again at Brunswick. I have seen so many guys that I used to race with down here. It is kind of like a home coming for us."
Pearson Jr. went on to talk about the great handling on his car for both shows at Golden Isles Speedway.
"Just like today when we got on top up there and kind of cleaned off the top. Our car worked great up top, we weren't as good on the bottom. The car has been good every time we have unloaded it this weekend."
On Friday night Earl Pearson Jr. was one of 42 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) entries on hand at Golden Isles Speedway (Brunswick, Georgia) for the series opener. Registering the second-fastest time in his qualifying group behind Hudson O’Neal, Pearson Jr. went on to pick up a 10-lap heat race victory, positioning him third on the starting grid for the feature.
With Mother Nature delaying the main event until Saturday afternoon, Earl improved one spot in the 50-lapper to cross the stripe in second behind Tyler Erb with Jonathan Davenport, Josh Richards, and Brandon Sheppard rounding out the Top-5 finishers.
Returning on Saturday night, Earl secured his spot into the $12,000-to-win finale with a runner-up finish in his heat behind Scott Bloomquist. Starting the feature fifth on the grid, Pearson Jr. blasted past Scott Bloomquist for the lead on lap 33 and held the top spot for the remaining 17 circuits to capture his first win of the season and a $12,000 payday. Jonathan Davenport, Scott Bloomquist, Tyler Erb, and Brandon Sheppard completed the Top-5 finishers in the 50-lap affair.
With three events in the books, Pearson Jr. currently leads the LOLMDS point standings. Full results from the weekend are available at www.LucasDirt.com .
The 2019 edition of the LOLMDS Speedweeks now shifts south to the Sunshine State for seven nights of racing. Monday through Saturday finds the team competing in the Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park (Gibsonton, Florida) at the facility that is known as “The Clay by the Bay.” Meanwhile, Sunday night takes the team to Bubba Raceway Park (Ocala, Florida).
