Scott Bloomquist, Chris Madden to take on WoO Late Models Series

Scott Bloomquist and Chris Madden, along with business SBR partner Cody Sommer, will seek WoO Late Models glory in 2020

An off-season that has been packed with announcements of driver moves, sponsor deals, and schedule changes has just received another big piece of news. Scott Bloomquist Racing drivers Scott Bloomquist and Chris Madden will make a team effort out of running the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series in 2020. The duo will receive sponsorship backing from Drydene Performance Products.

The announcement came during the PRI trade show in Indianapolis on Thursday afternoon.

Bloomquist was the 2004 WoO Late Models champion but has most recently raced full-time on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. The National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame member has won more than 600 feature events and is a three-time LOLMDS champion with his most recent title coming in 2016.

Bloomquist’s 2019 campaign was hampered by serious leg injuries he received as the result of a motorcycle accident in the spring. He was unable to complete the season on the Lucas Oil Series due to those injuries.

Madden has collected over 200 feature victories of his own in his career. In 2017 and 2018 he competed full-time on the WoO Late Models tour where he finished second and third in the series standings respectively during those years.

After parting ways with Skyline Motorsports in June of 2019, Madden joined forces with SBR and went on quite a tear as he scored wins in three crown jewels races(USA Nationals, North-South 100, and Topless 100) as well as numerous other national and regional touring series races.

Madden too suffered a serious injury that curtailed his racing efforts to a degree during the most recent season when he broke his eye socket in a golf cart accident prior to the Dirt Million in Mansfield, OH.

The two drivers will rely on Sweet-Bloomquist Race Cars during the 2020 campaign.

“It’s exciting,” Bloomquist said in a release announcing the move. “I have such a high-percentage win ratio for my first visits to tracks. It’s in the 70-some percent. There’s a number of tracks I haven’t been to, and I like that, that’s exciting to me. If I can come back and pull off a championship that would be awesome. Hopefully one of us will.”

Madden is glad for the opportunity to seek his first national touring series championship.

“Obviously, my goal is to win the championship,” Madden said. “I was close in ’18 and we fell out of five races. If we could go back, and I had not fallen out of those races, we would have got a championship that year. So, I want to win it, and this is the team I want to win it with.”
