PORT ROYAL, Pa. — Kyle Strickler will pilot a Scott Bloomquist Racing entry this weekend when the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series travels to Port Royal Speedway on Friday and Saturday.
According to a report from DirtonDirt.com, Strickler recently parted ways with PCC Motorsports despite being third in the World of Outlaws standings. In need of a ride for the Port Royal doubleheader, a deal was reached to have Strickler pilot a Bloomquist entry for the weekend.
In addition, Strickler will have the team’s namesake, Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Scott Bloomquist, as his crew chief for the weekend.
Following the Port Royal twinbill, Strickler will take possession of his own Team Zero race cars that he will drive for the remainder of the season. Early this season Strickler has two World of Outlaws victories in addition to a marquee victory in a dirt modified at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.
The deal to put Strickler in a Scott Bloomquist Racing entry comes after the 57-year-old Bloomquist ended his full-time run with the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series in April. He hasn’t raced since, but on Wednesday it was announced he would participate in a Superstar Racing Experience event at Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway on June 19.
According to the schedule on the Scott Bloomquist Racing website, Bloomquist is scheduled to return to the seat of a dirt late model for the May 27-29 Show-Me 100 at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo.
