Don O'Neal Runner-Up at Atomic; Finishes Sixth in Busy Weekend Finale
(April 24, 2017)
The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series grind heated back up from April 20-23 with four scheduled events in the states of Ohio, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. The quadruple header kicked off for the Clint Bowyer Racing (CBR) team on Thursday night with the annual 'Buckeye Spring 50,' which boasted a $10,000 winner's check at Atomic Speedway in Alma, Ohio. Don O'Neal timed in third quickest in Group A during the qualifying session prior to scoring a victory in his loaded heat race. After starting from the pole position in the 50-lapper, Don led the first 49 circuits until his CBR teammate Darrell Lanigan snuck past to grab the win on the final lap, which left the Martinsville, Indiana star to settle for an impressive runner-up showing.

On Friday evening, a rugged racetrack greeted the #5 team at Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio and series competitors unanimously voted that the $10,000 to win special become a non-points race due to the sub par track conditions. Don placed fourth in his heat race prior to retiring in the twelfth position of the 50-lap main event. Following a rain-out of Saturday's action at Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Maryland, the hectic weekend wrapped up on Sunday with another $10,000 to win showdown at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania. Don won his heat race in preliminary competition and later crossed underneath the checkers in the sixth spot in the 50-lap headliner. The "Real Deal" now finds himself fourth in the latest version of the LOLMDS point standings exiting the Keystone State.
