James Advances Through Alphabet Races at Knoxville Raceway!
(September 16, 2018)
Scott James found himself in the pit area at the renowned Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa from September 13-15 for the 15th edition of the 'Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals,' which kicked off with a pair of $7,000 to win preliminary shows. On Thursday night, Scott finished seventh in his heat race, third in the C-Main, and nineteenth in the B-Main. At the 1/2-mile, semi-banked speedplant on Friday evening, Scott ran seventh in his loaded heat race and sixth in the C-Main. Unfortunately, he was not able to transfer into the 25-lap feature event on both occasions.

The #83 team, who sported a tight racecar all weekend, was finally able to free the car up enough on Saturday and Scott put on a show. After scoring a triumph in the C-Main, Scott started towards the tail of the B-Main and proceeded to drive all the way up to fifth to earn a coveted transfer spot into the $40,000 to win 'Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals.' The Lawrenceburg, Indiana ace did not have enough time between the consolation race and the 100-lapper to make the correct adjustments and wound up retiring early from the crown jewel spectacular in the thirtieth position.

Soggy World 100 Weekend for Dolhun Motorsports at Eldora
(September 9, 2018)
Dolhun Motorsports had planned to unload their #83 machine from September 6-8 at the hallowed high-banks of Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio to vie for the prestigious globe trophy in the 48th Annual 'World 100.' However, with the rainy remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon postponing Friday and Saturday's action at the "Big E" until October 12-13, only Thursday night's $10,000 to win Twin 25s escaped the wrath of Mother Nature. In the wee hours of Friday morning after a lengthy rain delay, Scott James unfortunately slapped the wall during his qualifying lap and the damage inflicted to his XR1 Rocket Chassis caused him to scratch from the remainder of the program, which meant that Scott missed out on his 25-lapper.

The Schaeffer's Oil Iron-Man Championship Series presided over the $5,022 to win program and 35 competitors piled into the pit area.
