SUNOCO RACE FUELS ROAD TO WHEATLAND FOR THE LUCAS OIL LATE MODEL DIRT
SERIES HEADS EAST TO BEDFORD AND HAGERSTOWN ON APRIL 24 AND 25


CORONA, CA (April 13, 2009) - The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will
have two weekends off before hitting the road again as the Sunoco Race
Fuels Road to Wheatland heads east on Friday Night, April 24th with a
visit to Bedford Speedway in Bedford, PA and a Saturday night, April
25th show at Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, MD. Both events will
pay the winner $10,000.

With six different winners in the first eight '09 Lucas Oil Late Model
Dirt Series events the 4-time and defending series champion Earl Pearson
Jr. of Jacksonville, FL leads the series points standings by just 25
points over Jimmy Owens of Newport, TN. Pearson and Owens are followed
by Josh McGuire of Grayson, KY, Dale McDowell of Chickamauga, GA and
Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN.

The rest of the top ten in points heading to Bedford and Hagerstown are
Billy Moyer of Batesville, AR, Scott James of Lawrenceburg, IN, Ray Cook
of Brasstown, NC, Jeep VanWormer of Pinconning, MI and Steve Casebolt of
Richmond, IN.

VanWormer in his first full season of traveling with the LOLMDS leads
the Quarter Master Rookie of the Year points followed by John
Blankenship of Williamson, WV, David Breazeale of Four Corners, MS and
Michael Walker of Franklin, TN.

It will be the second ever appearance at Bedford Speedway for the Lucas
Oil Late Model Dirt Series as the “Bedford Valley Petroleum 50” event
will feature a complete show for the LOLMDS at the J.R. Keifer, Jim
Maybury and Dr. David Horne promoted Bedford County Fairgrounds
facility. Last year Ashland, KY’s Steve Francis took home the win in
the series’ first visit to the race track that began racing in 1936.
The rain date for Bedford’s Friday Night LOLMDS event just in case it is
needed will be Sunday, April 26th.

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series visit to Hagerstown on Saturday
Night, April 25th will be for the 28th Annual “Stanley Schetrompf
Classic” as the race honors the man who built Hagerstown Speedway. The

Track Racing” for the fourth time as Chub Frank of Bear Lake, PA, Scott
James of Lawrenceburg, IN and Bart Hartman of Zanesville, OH have
