Marlar Snaps O’Neal’s Win Streak

JUNCTION CITY, Ky. — Mike Marlar ended Hudson O’Neal’s three-race win streak on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series by taking the top spot in the 19th annual John Bradshaw Memorial sponsored by Tim Short Auto Group. Marlar finished just 0.574 seconds ahead of O’Neal at the checkers to earn his 19th career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory. Overton ran in second, tucked behind Marlar for the first 21 laps of the race until the only Gorsuch Performance Solutions caution flew for a slowing Earl Pearson Jr. On the lap 22 restart, O’Neal got by Overton to take over second. O’Neal then chased Marlar through lapped traffic, closing to just within a couple of car lengths of the Tennessee racer on several occasions as they raced through lapped traffic. We’ll take a second anytime you can stand on the frontstretch it’s a really good night,” O’Neal said. Overton, who finished second to O’Neal on Thursday night at Atomic, rounded out the podium with a third-place run at Ponderosa.
