Late Model Legends Scott Bloomquist and Billy Moyer
Enter April 18-19 Circle K Colossal 100 at The Dirt Track

CONCORD, N.C. (Feb. 19, 2008) - Dirt late model legends Scott
Bloomquist and Billy Moyer are among those who will battle for the $50,000
first-place prize during the third annual Circle K Colossal 100 April 18-19
at The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway.
Part of the World of Outlaws Late Model Series, the Circle K
Colossal 100 is the first marquee late model race of the season and
Bloomquist and Moyer are among nearly 100 drivers expected to participate in
the two-day extravaganza.
Bloomquist is the only winner of the Circle K Colossal 100. In the
2006 inaugural, the Mooresburg, Tenn., resident started fourth and led the
final 49 laps en route to the $50,000 prize. Last year, Bloomquist's winning
drive was considerably more difficult as he and Chris Madden exchanged the
lead five times. Bloomquist assumed command for the final time following a
lap-84 restart, but then had to fend off Madden's last-lap charge for his
second consecutive victory.
A member of the Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame, Bloomquist has
won more than 450 late model races in a career that started on a California
dirt track in 1980. He is a three-time winner of the prestigious World 100
and his resumé also includes four victories in the Show Me 100.
The nation's most prolific dirt late model driver so far this season
with six victories, Moyer is looking to end a string of bad luck that has
left the Batesville, Ark., racer with a best finish of 25th in the two
previous editions of the Circle K Colossal 100.
Also a member of the Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame, Moyer has more
than 700 victories in a career that started in 1977. He is a five-time
winner of the World 100 and has multiple victories in several of the
nation's other top events. He's a three-time champion of the nomadic World
of Outlaws circuit and has also earned titles with the United States Auto
Club, the National Championship Racing Association and the Hav-A-Tampa
Racing Series.
The Friday night portion of the Circle K Colossal 100 features group
time trials and heat races. The top two finishers in each heat will secure a
spot in the 100-lap finale and a draw will determine the starting lineup.
Saturday night's program begins with a driver autograph session and
the on-track action includes at least four additional qualifying races prior
to the main event. The race is part of the World of Outlaws Late Model
Series, but The Dirt Track's traditional format, including the extremely
popular Delaware-style restarts, will be utilized.
If purchased in advance, reserved tickets for both Friday and
Saturday nights are just $39 for adults and $10 for children ages 12 and
under. Two-day pit passes are $60 in advance.
Tickets and pit passes for the April 18-19 Circle K Colossal 100 can
be purchased online at www.lowesmotorspeedway.com or by calling
1-800-455-FANS.
The Fleetwood RV Camping Resort is located adjacent to The Dirt
Track and full-service camping spots can be reserved by calling (704)
455-4445.
