Mark Dobmeier – Weekend Sweep Sets Up Big Week of Racing!

July 3, 2013 – A historic weekend sweep last weekend for Mark Dobmeier and his Lunstra Motorsports team sets up one of the biggest weeks of racing over the Fourth of July. Dobmeier dominated features at Knoxville Raceway and Huset’s Speedway sets up the return visit by the World of Outlaws tonight at Huset’s, where “Dynamite” dominated them last year for his second career WoO win.
The Senske & Son Eagle timed in sixth quick at Knoxville in front of 30 cars signed in. A wide race track for the heats greeted the drivers with Dobmeier going from fifth to win his heat race. With the good effort in time trials, Dobmeier would line up third for the night’s main event. After avoiding problems for the front row starters, he found himself on the pole after a caution of the initial start. He kept Bronson Maeschen behind him to pick up his 11th career win at the historic half-mile, and his second in a row.
“Just another great team effort from everybody,” Dobmeier said. “We’re starting to qualify better which is letting us hit the invert (of eight). My guys gave me a great car for the feature and I had the easy job of driving it. We are definitely clicking going into twin features night next weekend down there.”
The next night was the last chance of preparation for tonight’s WoO race at Huset’s. After qualifying fourth and running fourth in his heat race, Mark would line up third on the grid for the feature. He would take the lead from young Cole Wood on lap ten and hung on to pick up his 50th career win at the track, but it wasn’t without a late challenge. Terry McCarl was able to run down the Sioux Falls Ford #13 in traffic, but spun out a lap later, giving the lead back to “Dobs” as he would then cruise to the victory.
“We got a little snug there in traffic late and Terry showed his nose around the bottom,” The 4-time Huset’s Champion stated. “I don’t know what exactly what happened but we’ll take the win. It’s pretty cool to have picked 50 wins in such a short amount of time here because this place has so much history.”
Of course, the Big Trucks by Jimco Eagle is ready to roll tonight for when the Outlaws come into town, including 3-time NASCAR Champion Tony Stewart.
“We’re hoping we can repeat what we did last year and get another win for this Lunstra Motorsports team,” he said. “It all starts with qualifying and hitting the invert and then getting into the dash after that. (It) sounds like there will be a really deep field of guys this year, but we’re going to be ready as ever to defend last year’s win.”
The week doesn’t stop there with preliminary plans to run Friday night at River Cities Speedway in his hometown of Grand Forks, N.D. That will be followed up by two full purse-paying features at Knoxville for twin features night, and the weekend wraps up again at Huset’s for a special $5,000 to win show.
“We’ve been working real hard the last few weeks to get the rig and the shop ready for this week,” Dobmeier said. “This team is ready to go to take on this week and hopefully we can get a few more wins to reward our hard work.”
2013 STATS: 18 Starts, 7 Wins, 11 Top Fives, 14 Top Tens, 7 Heat Wins, 2 Fast Times, Average Finish of 5.667, 78 Cars Passed in A Main Action, and Plus/Minus of +74 Positions
