(WHEATLAND, MISSOURI) - Story courtesy of Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series PR:

In a battle similar to the DART Show-Me 100 on Memorial Day Weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway, Jimmy Owens of Newport, TN and John Blankenship of Williamson, WV thrilled the large crowd on hand Saturday Night at Lucas Oil Speedway. Owens held off Blankenship on the final circuit to gain the win in the 6th Annual CMH Diamond Nationals earning $10,000 for his win in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and Lucas Oil MLRA-sanctioned event.

Owens and Blankenship ran one-two from the 12th lap. Blankenship led briefly on laps 20 and 21, but Owens rebounded to retake the point on lap 22. The race was slowed by only one caution flag. The two drivers put on quite a show constantly running side-by-side  around the 3/8ths mile track.

With lapped traffic playing a factor over the last half of the race, Blankenship chose the low line coming off of turn two on the final lap as Owens was up against the outside wall, but Owens changed lanes and went to the bottom heading into turn three. That move shut the door on Blankenship's attempt for the win. Don O'Neal of Martinsville, IN made a late-race charge and was almost within striking distance of both leaders as they headed to the checkered flag.

Owens has won back-to-back DART Show-Me 100's at the track and was nearly breathless in victory after a hard-fought 50 laps of racing. "The last two or three times we have been here, it has been a heck of a race! It's great for the fans, it keeps them coming back, I want to dedicate this win to Chad Bryant one of our crew guys, whose father just passed away, he is in our thoughts and prayers," said Owens, who also accepted a diamond ring for his win.

"I am going to have to get on John (Blankenship), he is not supposed to be passing me," said Owens, who sheepishly grinned toward Blankenship's direction in victory lane. "Our car was real good tonight, we started off the race really well, every once in a while you will get a track you like. Tonight they worked on it, my hats off to them, they went out and smoothed it out a little bit," said Owens, who maintains the top spot in the championship points standings

"I have to thank my car owner, Mike Reece, Reece Monument, Gantte Appraisals, Sunoco Race Fuels, Chris Davis from Midwest Sheet Metal, Ohlins Shocks and everybody else who makes this possible, my whole crew did a great job all weekend long, we had a second last night (at Tri-City) and to win tonight before this big crowd is something special."

Blankenship, who finished second to Owens in the DART Show-Me 100 again, was the bridesmaid again tonight in the Coal America's Energy, Rocket Chevrolet as he held off O'Neal in the Optima Batteries Chevrolet . Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN finished fourth ahead of Optima Batteries Hard Charger of the Race, Steve Francis of Ashland, KY in the Valvoline, Barry Wright Race Cars, Chevrolet. 

Completing the top ten were: Billy Moyer of Batesville, AR; Brad Neat of Dunnville, KY; Earl Pearson Jr. of Jacksonville, FL; Tyler Reddick of Corning, CA; and Chris Simpson of Oxford, IA.

In Pitts Homes USRA A-Modified action, Terry Schultz from Sedalia, MO and Johnny Fennewald from Appleton City, MO crossed the finish line in near sync. Schultz edged out Fennewald for the win as he added a "W" to his season. Fennewald and Schultz swapped places a few times as the laps wound down at Lucas Oil Speedway on Saturday Night. Jason Russell from Henley, MO finished third, continuing with his streak of solid finishes. 

The Diamond of Dirt Tracks will make-up the Casey's General Stores Mid-Season Points Championship on Saturday July 21st during KTTS Night and the Ozarks Food Harvest Food Drive. After rain washed out the first attempt last week, drivers and fans are anxious to see who will claim the Mid-Season title.During the Ozarks Food Harvest Food Drive, a donation of four non-persishable food items will be accepted as admission into Saturday's race. For complete event information visit www.LucasOilSpeedway.com.
