ROSSBURG, OH – Clint Bowyer Racing teammates Don O’Neal and Darrell Lanigan swept the twin 25-lap, $10,000 to-win World 100 preliminary feature events at Eldora Speedway on Friday night that were delayed nearly two hours by a rain shower that hit the speedway just before the heat races.

The win was O’Neal’s second career preliminary World 100 win, while Lanigan’s triumph was his second in as many nights and the third of his career. Both drivers are looking for their first career win in the World 100, which is Dirt Late Model racing’s most prestigious event.

O’Neal, of Martinsville, Indiana, led all 25 laps of the opener, holding Tim McCreadie for the win.

“I thought if I could get the jump at the start and get up in front of him, I would be okay,” O’Neal said. “We went a little softer on the right rear (tire) and I think that helped on the restarts.”

McCreadie had two different opportunities on restarts to take the lead away from O’Neal but had to settle for a runner-up finish .770 seconds behind O’Neal.

Gregg Satterlee, Mike Marlar and 2008 World 100 winner Shane Clanton completed the top five. Kyle Bronson, Brandon Sheppard, 2015 World 100 winner and Friday’s fastest qualifier Jonathan Davenport, Dale McDowell and rookie Jared Miley completed the top ten.

“Hopefully I will be back up here tomorrow night,” O’Neal said. “It would mean the world to me to win that race.”

After winning his heat race, Jacob Hawkins drove St. Henry’s Bill Dues-owned machine to a 19th-place finish in the first feature, while Jeff Babcock drove a St. Marys-based Best Performance Motorsports (BPM) machine to 20th at the finish.

Josh Richards, also in a BPM machine, led the first 18 laps of the second race before Lanigan, of Union, Kentucky, took the lead and eventual win away.

“My car was so good, I was just biding my time and I could see Josh was getting a little loose,” Lanigan said. “Like I said last night this may be the best piece I have ever brought up here and I really think I have something for them tomorrow.”

Jimmy Owens passed Richards for the second position on lap 21 but did not have enough time to run down Lanigan and settled for second-place, .659 seconds behind the leader. Richards finished in third-place, while 17-year old, Hudson O’Neal, the son of Don O’Neal, and defending World 100 winner, 20-year-old Bobby Pierce rounded out the top five.

Jon Henry, four-time World 100 champ Scott Bloomquist, Frank Heckenast, Jr., Jeep VanWormer and Zach Dohm completed the top 10 in race two.

The World 100 wraps up tonight with the traditional six heat races, consolation events and the 100-lap, $50,000 to-win main event. Gates open at 12:00 noon, with a quick set of Hot Lap sessions scheduled to hit the track at 6:45 PM.
