JIMMY OWENS FOURTH IN BATESVILLE OPENER
(August 18, 2019)
Another crown jewel event was on tap from August 15-17, as the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series once again presided over the 27th Annual 'Topless 100' at Batesville Motor Speedway. The action at the Locust Grove, Arkansas facility kicked off with a pair of $5,000 to win preliminary programs. In the roofless opener on Thursday evening, Jimmy Owens ran third in his loaded heat race prior to driving past six competitors during the 30-lap main event to finish fourth behind only race winner Chris Madden, Brandon Overton, and Scott Bloomquist. At BMS on Friday night, Jimmy placed sixth in his heat race, third in his B-Main, and ninth in the 30-lapper.

After amassing the fifth most points during the two prelims, Jimmy started Saturday's 100-lap headliner from the inside of the third row. The Newport, Tennessee star had his sights set on capturing his third 'Topless 100' title and the whopping $40,000 paycheck, but problems under the hood of his #20 machine shortly after the halfway mark nixed any hopes of a victory. Jimmy, who had ran inside of the top five early in the distance, wound up retiring from the contest after 71 circuits and was officially paid for a twenty-first place performance. He now finds himself fifth in the latest version of the heated LOLMDS point standings.

On Thursday night in the $10,000 to win 'North/South Shootout,' Jimmy Owens won his heat race and led laps 16-43 of the 50-lap feature event before a tangle with a lapped car sent him spinning.

At Florence on Friday evening in the double set of qualifying heat races, Jimmy scored a victory in both prelims in dominant fashion. By virtue of racking up the most passing points, the Newport, Tennessee star earned the rights to the pole position for Saturday's $50,000 to win 'North/South 100.' Jimmy then paced the stellar field from laps 1-18 and 34-75 before settling for a third place podium performance in the extra distance affair.
