Bloomquist was penalized earlier this week for a diver swap at the East Bay Raceway Park.
Cody Mallory replaced Tommy Hicks in 2015 as the Bloomquist’s crew chief.
Bloomquist has been racing since the 80s and recently picked up the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Champion trophy in 2016.
Scott Bloomquist has not publicly commented on Cody Mallory’s arrest. It is unclear at the time of writing whether the chief crew member will bail out of jail where he is currently being held in custody.
