Scott Bloomquist joins Colossal 100 Entry List
Featuring posted awards of $200,000, the two-day event will conclude with a 100-lap championship late model feature paying $50,000 to the winner. Thirty-six cars will take the green flag in the main event with each starter guaranteed at least $2,000.
With the addition of the 42-year-old Bloomquist, the Circle K Colossal 100 entry list now boasts 159 drivers from 25 states, including defending World of Outlaws late model champion Billy Moyer, 2005 Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series titlist Earl Pearson Jr. and Chili Bowl winner Tim McCreadie.
Bloomquist has won more than 430 late model races in a career that started on a California dirt track in 1980. The Mooresburg, Tenn., resident is a three-time winner of the prestigious World 100 and has four victories in the Show Me 100. During 2005, Bloomquist added victories in the Dirt Track World Championship and the Lucas Oil Knoxville Late Model Nationals to his resume.
The Friday night portion of the Circle K Colossal 100 will feature group time trials and heat races. The top two finishers in each heat will secure a spot in the 100-lap finale and a draw will determine the starting lineup.
Saturday night's program begins with a driver autograph session and the on-track action includes at least four additional qualifying races prior to the main event. The Dirt Track's traditional late model format will be utilized, including the extremely popular double-file restarts where drivers can choose either the inside or outside line.
If purchased in advance, reserved tickets for both Friday and Saturday nights are $49 for adults and $19 for children ages 12 and under. Two-day pit passes are $60 in advance.
