Scott Bloomquist has a message for the dirt late model competition
Last year, Scott Bloomquist was out of the seat and recovering from injury. A motorcycle crash sidelined the veteran driver through some of the biggest races of the 2019 season.
While Bloomquist recovered, the famed dirt late model team signed ‘The Moweaqua Missile’ to fill the seat in some major events. The first on the schedule was the Show Me 100 at Lucas Oil Speedway. That entire event was postponed due to a tornado that ripped through the complex.
Next, Babb also drove a Bloomquist ride at Eldora Speedway in the 25th running of the Dirt Late Model Dream.

Shannon Babb comments after 2019 Bloomquist test
The Illinois racer ran a test of the chassis ahead of the 2019 events:
“The test was unbelievable, when you have a car that feels so much different and has that kind of speed it certainly makes it hard to think about not being able to finish the deal” Shannon Babb stated.
“Of course you want Scott to return, so it’s bitter sweet when that happens, but thankfully Scott and Cody [Sommer] have given me the opportunity to run the car at the Dream.”
“I couldn’t be more excited about this weekends race,” Babb concluded in 2019.
