Barberville, Florida, Feb. 19, 2011
Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, Tenn., completed the first ever sweep of the World of Outlaws Late Model Series events in his Weld Racing equipped dirt late model during the 40th DIRTcar Nationals. He held off a hard charging Brady Smith to capture Saturday night’s 50-lap A-Main at Volusia Speedway Park.
Duplicating his winning performance in the national tour’s season opener on Thursday night, Bloomquist passed for the lead on lap 31 and never lost it. He spent the final 15 laps holding off Smith to become the first driver to win both WoO LMS features that are part of the winter racing at the half-mile oval.
“This was a tough field,” Bloomquist said after pocketing $10,000 for his 21st WoO LMS victory. “Volusia is a tough place as it is very demanding on the car, drivers, and engines. It feels good to do what we’ve done this week.”
