Hudson O’Neal recorded a sixth-place finish on Saturday night at All-Tech Raceway Rocket1 Racing / Valvoline / Seubert Calf Ranches No. 1 Ace Metal Works / XR1 Rocket Chassis / Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model.
His performance marked his fourth Top-10 finish in six Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) starts this season. O’Neal currently sits fifth in the latest series standings.
“We lost a few spots early in the feature because we went harder on tires than most everyone else, but we started rolling late and got back to sixth,” O’Neal said. “I always love going to East Bay (Raceway Park). Both my family and this team have a lot of great memories there.”
With persistent rain wiping out Friday’s Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) sanctioned program, Rocket1 Racing and Hudson O’Neal returned to action on Saturday afternoon at All-Tech Raceway (Lake City, Fla.).
Drawing 45 cars to the 4/10-mile oval, O’Neal laid down the fifth-fastest time in his group before placing third in his heat. Earning the 10th-starting position for the $15,000-to-win A-Main, Hudson slipped back early before clawing his way back to a sixth-place finish in the 50 lapper..
With his Saturday night performance, Hudson climbed to fifth in the latest LOLMDS point standings.
