One week ago it became known that National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame driver Scott Bloomquist had been injured in a motorcycle accident that had occurred during Daytona Bike Week. The Mooresburg, TN racer suffered what were then described as hip and leg injuries that would sideline him indefinitely.
As a result of the Florida incident, the No. 0 did not compete in last weekend’s Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series race in Brownstown, IN. It was the first time Bloomquist had not participated in a LOLMDS event since 2013.
Here is the initial story posted on this website on March 14, 2019 –> Scott Bloomquist sideline with hip and leg injuries
On Thursday night an update was provided by the @Bloomquist_0 Twitter account to update fans on the condition of the legendary driver.
Here is the text of that Twitter post:
“Update: Scott is in Mooresburg resting as comfortable as possible. He’s asked for no phone calls or visitors at this time. We will not have an update on his prognosis until after he meets with doctors in TN.”
The 55-year-old star plans a return to Dirt Late Model racing at some point but the time table for that return has yet to be established.
