Thornton Goes Back-To-Back In Lucas LM Tilt

WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa — Ricky Thornton Jr. went to the lead on lap 18 of the CRST – The Transportation Solution 50 at 34 Raceway and never looked back to score his fifth Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory of the season. With the $15,000 victory Thornton becomes the first series driver to eclipse the $100,000 mark in earnings this season. Tim McCreadie, who ran second to Thornton on Friday night held the lead for the first 17 laps until Thornton made the pass for the lead and went on unchallenged for the rest of the race. Brandon Overton finished second with Spencer Hughes rounding out the Big River Steel Podium in third. A caution with 12 laps to go gave McCreadie a shot at Thornton. Thornton again showed his strength as he pulled away from Overton and Hughes as he went on record his 10th career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory.
