ZANESVILLE, OHIO (July 3, 2018) – Gregg Satterlee was in complete control from the start of the 50-lap Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series main event on Tuesday night at Muskingum County Speedway. With the dominating victory, Satterlee becomes the 13th different winner this year on the LOLMDS tour and the 12th different winner in 13 appearances at the Donnie Moran-promoted facility.

Satterlee jumped to the lead at the start of the main event and never looked back. There was only one caution that slowed the field and that was with 11 laps remaining. On the restart, Satterlee pulled away again from Darrell Lanigan and went on for the convincing win – his second career on the LOLMDS tour.

Lanigan finished in second with current LOLMDS points leader Jonathan Davenport taking third. Josh Richards and Hudson O’Neal completed the top five drivers.

“It’s been a long-time coming. It’s so tough to win a race against these guys. You have to take them when they are there. We have struggled this year, but recently we have been running better. My crew chief Robbie Allen and the rest of the crew have worked hard to turn this thing around. It’s great to win in front of my family here tonight. My dad, wife, and new daughter are here. This is my daughter’s first visit to victory lane. There was a great crowd here tonight and I hope the fans enjoyed the show.”

Richards ran in second-place for the first two laps until Lanigan went by him. Lanigan then ran in the runner-up slot the remainder of the race. On the final restart of the race Lanigan was lined up beside his Clint Bowyer teammate Don O’Neal. On the restart O’Neal slipped over the edge of the race track forcing him to lose several positions after climbing to as high as third in the running order.

“It was a good weekend for the Clint Bowyer Team,” said Lanigan who completed his second straight top-five in the LOLMDS. “Don [O’Neal] had two wins and we have two top fives. Hopefully we have turned the corner and can finish the season strong.”

Davenport, who started 10th made a late-race charge to finish third and maintain the series points lead. “We aren’t really worried about the points right now. We just wanted a good finish. We had a good car last night at Sharon and tonight things sort of fell our way tonight and we were able to get a podium finish. I think we can get back on track to where we were earlier in the season. We have a good car. Now we get to head down south to tracks I have run quite a bit, so we will see what happens.”

The winner’s Gary Satterlee-owned Rocket Chassis is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by: Satterlee Petroleum Distributors, Keyser Manufacturing, Valvoline, Classic Ink, AFCO, and Integra.

Completing the top ten were Jimmy Owens, Mason Zeigler, Bobby Pierce, Eddie Carrier Jr., and Tim McCreadie.
