GREENWOOD, Neb. (Sept. 15, 2021) – Scott Bogucki recorded his fourth victory of the season during Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition last Friday at I-80 Speedway.
The SawBlade.com sponsored driver swept the night in impressive fashion, winning a pair of heat races before dominating the Bobby Parker Memorial main event.
“I really like that place and the car was good,” he said. “That was probably the best performance we’ve had. We were quickest in hot laps, won the first heat, won the second heat and won the feature. It was a clean sweep.”
Bogucki captured his first heat race from the outside of the front row. The second heat race featured a charge from eighth to win.
“Most of the cars I got on the start of the second heat race,” he said. “The inside row went left and the outside row went right. We got maybe four spots going right through the middle. I got the lead on a restart with three laps to go.”
That made Bogucki the high-points driver and garnered the pole position for the 30-lap A Main.
“I hate starting on the pole,” he said. “There’s only two things you can do, win or lose. We had a good race though. It was like 30 hot laps and I think we won by two seconds.”
Bogucki returned to the track on Saturday for the Casey’s Midwest Fall Brawl. He advanced from third to second place in a heat race before gaining a position in the feature to end seventh.
“I think we ran up to fourth in two laps and then it was a steady fade from then on,” he said. “Honestly, I feel like I missed it with the car on Saturday, which was on me. We were way too free.”
The next event on tap for Bogucki is the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial this Thursday through Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. He has earned a podium finish during the event two of the last three years, including a career-best runner-up result in the 2018 finale.
“I’ve been really, really good or really, really bad there,” he said. “It’s a race I definitely want to win. We’ll be giving it our all.”
