There’s been so much written and said about the fact that NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series has had seven different winners (and seven different No. 1 qualifiers) in as many races to start the 2014 season.

But as outstanding as that is, the Sprint Cup folks have a little catching up to do to reach those in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.

Heading into last Saturday’s race at ARK-LA-TEX Speedway, there had been 10 different winners in the first 10 LOLMDS races this season.

How’s that for parity?

But sooner or later the law of averages were going to catch up and Scott Bloomquist, who won the DIRTcar Nationals earlier this season at Volusia (Fla.) Speedway, became the first repeat winner with his Saturday night win at ARK-LA-TEX Speedway.

Using the all-new RY-45 motor from Roush Fenway Racing, Bloomquist started from fourth position, moved up to second 20 laps into the event, and then took the lead from Ray Moore just two laps from the finish of the 50-lap A-Main event.

It was Bloomquist’s 47th career win in the LOLMDS.

“This is our first time here,” Bloomquist said. “We’ve got a 70% win ratio for our first visit to a racetrack so we just upped our percentage a little bit tonight.”
