New Deal Strikes Big Deal; Hudson O'Neal to DDM for 2021!
(October 12, 2020) As the 2020 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series season comes to a close this upcoming weekend (October 16-17) in the $100,000 to win 'Dirt Track World Championship' at Portsmouth (OH) Raceway Park, Double Down Motorsports owner Roger Sellers and driver Hudson O'Neal are both excited to announce a partnership that will take them back out on the road with the premier national touring series in 2021! Tennessee-based Double Down Motorsports followed the entire Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series campaign back in 2019 with driver Shanon Buckingham and most notably picked up a $12,000 triumph at Tazewell Speedway in Tazewell, Tennessee on the way to finishing tenth in the final series point standings. The DDM team was also a fixture on the LOLMDS tour through much of 2020 until pulling the plug in late August when Buckingham's work commitments - in part - forced him off the series schedule.

Hudson, who was the 2017 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Rookie of the Year, has been a stalwart on the tour since his rookie campaign and has finished as high as seventh in the final point standings in 2019. The twenty-year-old rising star from Martinsville, Indiana has seven career LOLMDS victories including wins in the 2019 'Jackson 100' at Brownstown (IN) Speedway worth $15,000, the 2019 'Mountain Moonshine Classic' at Roger Sellers' own Smoky Mountain (TN) Speedway worth $15,000, and the 2018 'Clash at the Mag' at Magnolia (MS) Motor Speedway worth $20,000. Much like Double Down Motorsports, Hudson started out the 2020 season with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series driving the MasterSbilt House Car, but pulled off the tour in mid-July. | full story

Shanon Buckingham & Double Down Motorsports End Lucas Oil Pursuit
(August 27, 2020) Shanon Buckingham and Double Down Motorsports are dropping off the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series effective immediately to re-evaluate plans going forward.

"We have known from the beginning that family and business would take priority over anything else", said Roger Sellers, owner of Double Down Motorsports. Shanon has a storm recovery business, and its now hurricane season as everyone can see with the current situation on the gulf coast. It's only a matter of time until he gets the call to head out. He has also started a tree business with his oldest son, Camden, just a few weeks ago. They have been blessed with an abundance of work. The busy schedule that comes from running a national series combined with a season of racing that hasn't gone as well as we would have hoped has led to the team deciding to pull off the Lucas Oil tour.

"I think running a major series such as Lucas Oil is the ultimate dream for any driver that has raced at a local track on a Saturday night", said Buckingham. Thanks to Roger, Casey, my Dad (Tom), JC, and Eric for allowing me the opportunity to do just that. The Lucas guys are the best officials, fellow racers and team owners, and staff that I have ever had the chance to compete with. I would like to thank our marketing partners and product sponsors for helping make this possible as well, including Lazydays RV, 2150 Enterprises, Smoky Mountain Speedway, FK Rod Ends, Penske Racing Shocks, Maxima Racing Oil, Longhorn Chassis, and Durham Race Engines.

Sellers also noted, that he too was faced with a difficult decision much like this several years ago. I had to put racing aside when Tennessee RV Supercenter was founded in 2004 with just a handful of inventory. The dealership quickly grew into one of the largest RV dealers in the Southeast. It's the American Dream, and I'm behind anyone and everyone that wants to live it. The future of Double Down Motorsports is uncertain, but we have several options to sort through. The team was started in November 2015 and crew chief, JC Crockett, has been with the team since January 2017. JC has been involved in motorsports for most of his life and as anyone will tell you - a good team member is always in high demand. JC intends to weigh his options as he has many possibilities as to what is next for him. Roger is the owner of Smoky Mountain Speedway and is heavily involved in drag racing as well. Don't be surprised to see him around somewhere in the near future. (MRM Racing Photos)

Shanon Buckingham Inside Top Five in Topless 100 Prelim!
(August 23, 2020) Shanon Buckingham and Double Down Motorsports (DDM) made their way to Batesville Motor Speedway in Locust Grove, Arkansas over the August 20-22 weekend for the 28th edition of the 'Topless 100.' The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series once again presided over the crown jewel spectacular, which kicked off with a pair of $5,000 to win preliminary showdowns. On Thursday night, Shanon unfortunately missed out on the 30-lap weekend opener after finishing seventh in his heat race and fifth in his B-Main. Things went much smoother for the #50 team on Friday evening at BMS, as Shanon won his heat race prior to bagging a stellar fourth place effort in the 30-lapper behind only victor Jimmy Owens, Brandon Overton, and Jonathan Davenport!

By virtue of racking up the twelfth most points during the two prelims, Shanon started Saturday's $40,000 to win 'Topless 100' from the outside of the sixth row. Unfortunately, the Morristown, Tennessee driver ran into issues early in the 100-lap distance and was eventually paid for a twenty-third place showing. Shanon now sits twelfth in the latest version of the LOLMDS point standings exiting the annual 'Topless 100.'

Shanon Buckingham won his heat race and later wound up thirteenth in the final finishing order of the 50-lap main event. At Florence on Thursday night in the $10,000 to win 'North/South Shootout,' Shanon placed third in his stacked heat race before finishing eighteenth in the 50-lapper.

When Friday rolled around at the Cincinnati-area facility, preliminary action got underway for the annual running of the 'North/South 100.' Shanon advanced to sixth in his first heat race prior to securing a heat race triumph in his final prelim on Saturday afternoon. By virtue of racking up the twelfth most points during the heat races, the Morristown, Tennessee native rolled off from the outside of the sixth row in the $50,000 to win 'North/South 100.' Shanon then had a strong run going in the 100-lap crown jewel headliner until a couple of late skirmishes dropped the "Big Buck" to a disappointing twentieth place showing.

After starting the contest from the inside of the ninth row, Shanon eventually wound up being scored sixteenth in the final rundown.

On Friday evening at the 4/10-mile speedplant, two rounds of heat races were on tap to help set the stage for Saturday's grand finale. Shanon ran second in his first heat race of the night, while he finished fifth in his final prelim. By virtue of racking up the sixteenth most passing points, Shanon rolled off from the outside of the eighth row in Saturday's $53,000 to win 'Silver Dollar Nationals.' At the end of 101 green flag laps in the crown jewel headliner, the Morristown, Tennessee ace found himself credited with a fourteenth place performance and still sits eleventh in the latest version of the series point standings.
