Spring Fever Weekend: Buckeye Spring 50/Modstravaganza Night One Quick Results:
CHILLICOTHE, OH (April 20, 2017) – Clint Bowyer Racing’s Darrell Lanigan earned $10,000 on Thursday night at Atomic Speedway, overtaking teammate Don O’Neal on the final circuit to claim the Third Annual Buckeye Spring 50 featuring the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. O’Neal led the first 49 circuits of the 50-lap main event, but a side-by-side battle between lapped cars just ahead of the leaders allowed Lanigan to make a late bid for the top spot. Scott Bloomquist finished third after a charge from ninth, followed by Devin Moran and Tim McCreadie.
