September 28th, 2013 - Carrier Jr. Competes in Knoxville Late Model Nationals
1 Eddie Carrier Jr. opened the 10th Annual Lucas Oil Knoxville Late Model Nationals on Thursday evening at Knoxville Raceway (Knoxville, Iowa) with a $7,000-to-win, preliminary event that drew 72 entries to the legendary, 1/2 mile oval.

Eddie qualified 4th fastest in his group in time trials, and with the tour eight cars being inverted for heat race action, Carrier Jr. started 7th in his heat race before advancing to a 4th place finish. With only the top three finishers locking into the feature Eddie was forced to run a b-main, which he won to lock into the 19th starting spot for the 25 lap finale. In the feature he advanced five spots to finish 14th at the checkered flag.

Friday night found another $7,000-to-win program being held as part of the mega-event, and via time trials and the inversion Eddie started on the pole of his heat race before racing to a 2nd place finish to lock into the main event in the 18th position. For the second straight night he would advance to a 14th place finish at the checkered flag.

Via his preliminary night performances Eddie started 17th on the grid for Saturday evening's 100 lap, $40,000-to-win finale at the 1/2 mile oval. He would race his way into the top ten during the race's first half, and looked to be on his way to a solid finish, when his night took a suddenly drastic turn on lap 94, when contact from another competitor sent him into the turn 3 wall, which caused him to flip. He was uninjured, but done for the night with a destroyed car. He was credited with a 17th place finish in the final standings.

September 21st, 2013 - Carrier Jr. Battles Track Conditions at Brownstown
1 Eddie Carrier Jr. was slated to begin a weekend doubleheader with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) at Florence Speedway (Union, Kentucky) on Friday night, however Mother Nature had other ideas as the program was washed away.

As a result Carrier Jr. participated in a single event with a trip to the historic Brownstown Speedway (Brownstown, Indiana) for the 34th Annual Jackson 100 on Saturday night. The $15,000-to-win event drew a field of 46 entries to the 1/4 mile oval, which was left rough by heavy rain from the night prior. A 2nd place finish in his heat race locked Eddie into the 6th starting spot for the 100 lap finale.

He raced in the top ten in the opening laps before a mechanical issue forced him to slow on lap 7. Carrier Jr. was able to rejoin the tail of the field before rebounding to a 13th place finish at the checkered flag.

Eddie is currently seventh in the latest LOLMDS standings. Full results from the program as well as the latest standings are available at www.LucasDirt.com.

The two-day extravaganza at the 3/8 mile oval began on Friday night with time trials and heat race action for the 22 car field that was on hand. Eddie qualified 2nd fastest in his group before racing to a 2nd place finish in his heat race.

Saturday night's program was headlined by twin, $10,000-to-win features, and in the 2nd feature Carrier Jr. started 5th on the grid. He raced in the top five throughout the event before racing to a 5th place finish behind race winner, Jackie Boggs, RJ Conley, Greg Johnson, and Tim Dohm.

For the second feature the line-up was determined by inverting the cars, which were running at the end of the first feature. As a result Eddie started 8th on the grid for the second, 50 lap feature, and as the race went green he began working his way forward before taking the lead from Duane Chamberlain just past the halfway point. Once out front he never looked back on his way to the $10,000 victory, which came over Chamberlain, Jared Miley, Greg Johnson, and Ben Adkins.

“The first feature we weren’t really that good, but that gave us quite a bit of time to work on the car,” Carrier said. “We made quite a bit of changes and went a little harder on tires. I didn’t think we were gonna get up through there. We kept on having them cautions and we really needed some green-flag runs. Seemed like the bottom started working a lot better in that second one.”

Carrier had the choice of a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle or $10,000 after his victory. He chose the money.

“It takes money to run this operation,” said Carrier, who was the first driver to take the money of the motorcycle in the history of the event. “I know everybody likes to ride bikes, but the way the economy is, it’s seems like nobody has the kind of play money they used to have. Money’s tight and we’ve got eight bikes right now we’re trying to sell.”
