Scott Bloomquist Conquers Silver Anniversary of the Pittsburgher 100 in NDRL Action

Imperial, Pennsylvania (October 12, 2013) Scott Bloomquist may have not had the season that he’s wanted in 2013, but it definitely took a turn for the best on Saturday night as he outdueled a talented field of National Dirt Racing League (NDRL) Super Late Models to win the $25,000 check in the 25th Annual Pittsburgher 100 at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway (Imperial, Pennsylvania).

Scott Bloomquist overtook fellow front row starter, Billy Moyer on lap 12, and once out front never looked back on his way to a convincing win in the 100 lap feature. The victory was his fourth triumph of his career in the mega-event.

In victory lane a jubilant Bloomquist climbed atop his #0 Roush Yates powered Bloomquist Race Car in front of a massive approving crowd at the historic, half-mile oval with the checkered flag hoisted high in the air.

After catching his breath and climbing back to the ground the Mooresburg, Tennessee driver addressed the raucous crowd.

“We’ve been doing a lot of testing this year, and some things have worked and others haven’t. Tonight it did,” Bloomquist commented. “The car would just go wherever I needed it to be, and I felt really comfortable out there tonight.”

Fellow Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Billy Moyer snagged the lead as the finale went green with Bloomquist, Jason Feger, Dale McDowell, and Mason Ziegler in pursuit. By lap 9 the leaders were already in lapped traffic, and three laps later Bloomquist took advantage of heavy lappers to shoot past Moyer for the lead exiting turn three.

As the race endured a long green flag run Feger raced past Moyer a few laps later and set his sights on the leader, Bloomquist. The front duo set a blistering pace lapping up to the 15th position by lap 40 as they established a nine second lead on the pack.

The race’s first caution flew on lap 42 as Jackie Boggs slowed from contention with mechanical issues.

“The hardest point of the race tonight was not knowing what was happening behind me,” noted Bloomquist in victory lane. “I just had to assume I was in the best spot during those long green flag runs.”

Two more cautions struck over the next thirty laps to slow the action including 4th place runner, Dale McDowell falling pit-side on lap 51.

The race’s final caution waved for John Garvin Jr. on lap 72 with the top five running order including Billy Moyer, Jason Feger, Eddie Carrier Jr., and Kent Robinson, who started back in 16th. As the green flag waved for the final time Robinson rocketed into the 3rd spot with Feger beginning to fade.

Over the closing laps of the event Moyer tried to catch Bloomquist for the lead, but his attempts would fall short as Bloomquist won by just over a second with his fastest lap of the race coming on the final circuit. Jason Feger found motor issues biting him with five laps remaining as he retired from the top five.

Billy Moyer crossed the finish line in the 2nd spot to claim the inaugural National Dirt Racing League Championship, which included a $20,000 check. “I’ve got to give Kennedy a lot of credit for what he’s put together here,” commented Moyer after the race. “These purses have been amazing and every race has seemed like a World 100 caliber field. I said a few years ago I was done point’s racing, but here I am tonight.

Kent Robinson, Eddie Carrier Jr. and 21st starting, Rick Eckert, founded out the top five finishers.

Jackie Boggs topped the 49 entries on hand in Keyser Manufacturing time trials with a 19.326 second lap around the half-mile. Heat race action was topped by Jason Feger, Keith Barbara, Mason Ziegler, Scott Bloomquist, Billy Moyer, and Dale McDowell won the heat races. B-main action was topped by Austin Hubbard and Eric Wells.
