O'NEAL A STERLING RUNNER-UP IN NORTH/SOUH 100!!!
(August 11, 2019) Following a couple of idle weekends on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series schedule, the popular national touring series took the #71 team to Florence Speedway from August 8-10 for the 37th edition of the 'North/South 100.' The three-day extended weekend in Union, Kentucky drew 53 entrants to the 1/2-mile speedplant to do battle in the crown jewel extravaganza. On Thursday night in the $10,000 to win 'North/South Shootout,' Hudson O'Neal placed fourth in his stacked heat race and third in his B-Main, which forced him to rely on an emergency provisional to gain access into the 50-lap main event. After rolling off from the inside of the thirteenth row in the weekend lid lifter, Hudson steered his Longhorn mount past seventeen competitors en route to a solid eighth place feature showing.

At Florence on Friday evening in the double set of qualifying heat races, Hudson streaked to the win in his first heat race before finishing fourth in his final prelim. By virtue of racking up the fifth most passing points, the Martinsville, Indiana ace earned the rights to the inside of the third row for the start of Saturday's $50,000 to win 'North/South 100.' In front of a sold out crowd in the 100-lap headliner, Hudson drove all the way up to second in the contest and landed an impressive runner-up effort behind only victor Chris Madden. The "New Deal" still finds himself eighth in the latest LOLMDS point standings exiting Florence.
