Mother Nature Mandates Schedule Adjustment


In what has been an historic season, the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series has rained out exactly one half of the 2018 schedule.  The late summer months have turned especially harsh.  BOSS and race track officials have been working to reschedule some fall events in an effort to have a championship night for the traditional wingless sprint cars and to cap the season with one last stand alone winged event.  The following are the remaining events along with some rescheduled events.


This Friday and Saturday, September 14 & 15 - BOSS WINGS - co-sanctioned with FAST for the "Jim Ford Classic".  Two complete shows for winged 410 sprint cars.  $3,000 to win / $400 to start on Friday.  Then, $10,000 to win and $500 to start on Saturday.  All non transfers will get $200 each night.  FAST rules will prevail both nights.  Friday pit passes are $30 and Saturday is $35 pit admission.  Gates open at 4 each day with racing at 7.  Special bonus awards will be awarded to drivers from the top 15 in current non wing points and/or drivers who have attended one of the 2 previous BOSS winged events at Atomic and Gas City.


The NON WING traditional sprints will makeup the 2018 Kokomo Sprint Car Smackdown on Thursday night, September 27th.  Being a rare Thursday event, BOSS has elected to make this a special non points paying event.  We can not justify asking teams to take 2 days off work to compete one night.  This event will still run under full BOSS rules and supervision.  Heat race and bonus awards will still be paid out.  The same rule applies, any driver who has made a previous Smackdown A-Main is NOT eligible for the BOSS portion of the show.  


The BOSS WING 410 sprints will return to action with a make-up event at Montpelier Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 29.  This race was rained out on Saturday, August 18th.  Montpelier promoter, Harold Hunter, was excited to work with us to make this event happen.  This event will pay $3,000 to win and $300 to start.  


Finally, the rained out NON WING finale at Montpelier from September 8th is under negotiations for a make-up date as well.  Officials from both sides are discussing October weekends, and an announcement will be made in the next few days.


If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact BOSS promoter Aaron Fry at 740-703-3768 or e-mail sprinter14@hotmail.com

 

 

 

Season Finale Doubleheader Weekend


The 2018 championship chase for the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series will come to an end this weekend with a Hoosier Fall Spectacular Weekend at Montpelier Motor Speedway on Saturday and at Kokomo Speedway on Sunday.   This annual event at Montpelier typically draws in the vicinity of 40 traditional ground pounding non wing sprints.  Sunday's Kokomo event is the rescheduled "Sprint Car Smackdown" featuring both USAC and BOSS sprint cars in separate programs!


Without a doubt, 2018 has been a very trying season.  Only 10 of 18 scheduled events have been completed to date.  A record 7 rainouts cut the season short along with one race being pulled from under the series due to a make-up event.  As rough as the season has been, it will be nice to end on a high note with a quality doubleheader weekend on 2 very well prepared race tracks.


The open wheel veteran, Bill Rose, holds a comfortable lead in the standings.  Making the main event at Montpelier and having a good run will all but clinch the 2018 title.  Ty Tilton is 90 points from the lead, but would need Rose to struggle at both events in order to have a shot.  Only 95 from Tilton is Cody Gardner, who is the only other driver with a mathematical shot at the championship.  This trio set themselves apart during the second half of the year and will now settle it among themselves over 2 nights in Indiana.


Paul Dues, Mike Miller, Joe Liguori and Matt Cooley hold positions 4-7 with only 7 points separating them all.  Chad Wilson sits in the 8th spot with Kory Crabtree a close 9th.  Steve Little has had a year as trying as the BOSS series itself, as he rests in the tenth spot.  Bob McMillin, Buddy Lowther Cole Ketcham, Carmen Perigo and Matt Westfall round out the top 15.


Saturday at Montpelier, gates will open at 3 pm with hot laps at 5 and racing action beginning at 6:30.  Adult general admission is $20 with children 12 and under free with paid adult.  Pit passes are $30 and includes transponder rental for your car.  No mufflers are required and fuel will be available at the track.


On Sunday at Kokomo, gates officially open at 2 pm.  Hot laps are scheduled for 5 pm with racing action immediately following.  The BOSS portion of the program will run first in an effort to get our teams on the road at a decent hour.  General admission is $35 with kids 12 and under free with paid adult.  Pit passes are $45 and includes transponder rental.  The BOSS portion of the program is open ONLY to drivers who have NOT made the A-Main in any of the 6 previous Kokomo Smackdown's.  No mufflers are required at Kokomo.


Both events this weekend will be the standard $1,500 to win / $250 to start payouts with the pill draw format.  Teams can get paid after each night or choose to get one check after night number 2.  Teams may also choose to have their checks mailed to them Monday morning if they need to get on the road immediately following the main event.  


A 10% off discount on hotels has been offered by the Gas City, Indiana Best Western and Super 8 Hotel.  Ask for the "BOSS Racer's Rate".  Phone Best Western at 765-998-2331 and the Super 8 at 765-997-8096.  IF you reserve a room, cancellations must be made by FRIDAY morning at 9 am.  The 10% discount is available through Saturday night as long as rooms are available.

BOSS 2nd Ever Winged Event Set for Montpelier


The Montpelier Motor Speedway is set to play host to just the second ever WINGED BOSS sprint car event this Saturday, August 18th.  Built for horse racing in 1903, this fairground half mile oval first hosted auto racing in 1915.  The now quarter mile oval first began hosting the BOSS tour in 2014.  The annual wingless races have been won by Robert Ballou (2014), Shane Cottle (2015), rained out in 2016, and Thomas Meseraull (2017).  Every event featured a large field of cars and a very well prepared race track.


With more than 7 years of traditional wingless sprint car racing under the BOSS banner, the 2018 season has featured the series venturing into the winged side of the sport.  The inaugural event at Atomic Speedway on May 12th saw 27 cars in attendance.  A similar field is expected for round 2 with a VERY unique mixture of former All Star drivers, some Ohio wing veterans, some BOSS non wing veterans, and a few non wing drivers making their first EVER winged starts.


For Montpelier Motor Speedway, it has been 13 years since the ground pounding 410 winged sprint cars showered the fans with clay.  Previous winners in four visits  are Kraig Kinser with 2 wins, while Kelly Kinser and Chad Blonde have one win each.  The BOSS/Montpelier pairing has seen great success the last few years and both parties look to translate that into the winged sprints with this annual event.


Unlike the traditional wingless tour, the winged BOSS events will have a tire rule.  All cars must be on all 4 Hoosier Racing Tires.  The left rear tires must be the "H" series national spec tire.  The right rear can be the "H" series tire, but we will also allow the "Medium" right rear, as well as the W18.  Any 360 or 305 teams may also run their spec right rear for their respective tours.   Also, wings must be flat top wings with a 1" wicker.  Finally, cars must weigh 1400 pounds with the driver after the event.  No mufflers are required.


The full purse is as follows for the main event:  1)  $3,000   2) $1,500   3) $1,000   4) $700   5) $600   6) $550   7) $500   8) $475   9) $450   10) $425   11) $400   12) $380   13) $360   14) $340   15) $320   16) $300   17) $300   18) $300   19) $300   20) $300


All cars not starting the main event but who compete in the program will be guaranteed $100 tow money.  As is typical with BOSS, if 30 cars or more sign in, 2 additional cars will be added to the main event lineup.


There are NO ENTRY FEES or membership fees with BOSS.


Hawkins Speed Shop of Richmond, Indiana has stepped in to help our drivers.  For teams who compete at Montpelier on August 18th AND sign in to compete at Route 44 Speedway on September 1st, will be eligible for a drawing for a free drum of clear methanol.  


We hope you will make plans to attend this VERY historic first time event!  Below are details about Montpelier Motor Speedway and this race.

Westfall Scores 4th BOSS win of 2018 in GLDN


The second running of the Great Lakes Dirt Nationals is in the books.  Matt Westfall of Pleasant Hill, Ohio took command early and led the 25 lap main event wire to wire to make BOSS history.  He is the first driver to win 4 main events in one season on the tour.  Aboard the Ray Marshall Motorsports #33M, Westfall won back to back at Route 44 Speedway and Waynesfield Raceway Park on July 6-7.  He then won the August 3rd event at Atomic Speedway and finally, made histpry last night .


Thirty-one traditional wingless sprint cars registered for competition.  In hot laps, Scott Hardman from nearby Ashalnd, Ohio, made contact with the first turn wall and flipped.  He was unhurt.  Group qualifying among heat race groups found Mike Miller, Bill Rose, Cody Gardner and Clinton Boyles setting fast times respectively.  Gardner was quickest overall with a 18.134 second lap.


Heat race action saw the front 4 cars inverted with the top 2 finishers moving on to redraw.  Dustin Ingle, Bill Rose, Ty Tilton and Luke Hall won their 8 lap heats.  The 15 car B-Main was won convincingly by Mike Miller.  Behind him, an 8 car free-for-all ensued over the final laps fighting for the final transfer positions leaving fans on the edge of their seats.


In the 25 lap A-Main, Westfall and Luke Hall brought the field to the green flag.  The pair waged a torrid battle early, before Westfall motored out to a moderate lead.  Bill Rose, Dallas Hewitt, Tyler Gunn and Chad Wilson were the 4 cars making moves toward the front.  Ty Tilton was able to slip past Hall for 2nd and appeared to be the only threat to Westfall.  Only one caution would slow the event, when Paul Dues had a mechanical failure that put him into the inside wall.  


With only a handful of laps remaining, Westfall was able to pull back to a slim lead on the restart and held on to score the win.  Ty Tilton held on for second with series points leader Bill Rose finishing 3rd.  Dallas Hewitt and Michael Fischesser completed the top 5.  Cody Gardner, Luke Hall, Tyler Gunn, Clinton Boyles and Kory Crabtree rounded out the top 10.


The next BOSS traditional wingless event is Saturday, August 25th at Kokomo Speedway as part of the finale of the "Kokokmo Sprint Car Smackdown".


Next Saturday, BOSS will sanction only its second ever WINGED sprint car event at Montpelier Motor Speedway in Indiana on August 18th.

Mansfield "Great Lakes Dirt Nationals" Awaits BOSS


With the 2018 championship entering the home stretch, another big weekend awaits the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series.  The second annual "Great Lakes Dirt Nationals" is set to host 3 divisions of sprint cars once again.  The traditional non wing true outlaws of BOSS will be joined by the FAST 410 winged sprint cars and the FAST 305 winged sprints.  Friday night will find BOSS running for $2,000 to win and $250 to start using the standard pill draw format.  However, with $3,000 to win and $300 to start on Saturday, a complete new show will feature group qualifying against your heat race group during hot laps.


Each day, pit gates will open at 1 pm with the pill draw opening at 1:30.  On Friday, the draw will close at 5:30 pm when the drivers meeting begins.  Immediately following the drivers meeting, engine heat and then hot laps will follow.  Racing is set to begin at 7 pm.  BOSS will run first throughout the program and compete in a 20 lap main event.

Underwood is BOSS, Takes Jack Hewitt Classic

Todd Ridgeway
Area Auto Racing News
August 4, 2018

WAYNESFIELD(OH) – 26-year-old Troy Ohio driver Lee Underwood went from fifth to the winner circle on a late race restart to capture his career first 410 Sprint Car feature victory at Waynesfield (OH) Raceway Park at the Annual Jack Hewitt Classic. With but a handful of laps to go in the 30 lap contest Underwood would find a bite in the middle of the track and power by two cars on the restart and then dispose of two more a lap later and with but four to go zip by then race long leader Dave Darland to secure the victory in a fast paced, thrill filled event that had the fans on their feet.

“This is my fourth year driving this 410 Sprint Car, we race here about six times a year.” Said Underwood. “My very first 410 Sprint Car win and I am so excited. I found the middle of the track about halfway through the race, and I knew if I could just get a restart I would have something for them, and we did. Boy, it feels so good, this was a good race for the fans,” noted the happy race winning driver.
 
Darland and Kody Swanson would bring the field of 24 non-winged warriors to the start as Darland had little trouble pushing to the point as Swanson dropped back through the field. Luke Hall would settle in second and push to the lead at the race ten lap mark in turn one only to see Darland power back by in turn three. Bill Rose would battle his way into second getting by Hall and pull up on Darland as the pair blistered the Ohio dirt. The late race yellow would drop when a car had a flat and stalled on track. Dallas Hewitt had moved into fourth and Underwood cracked the top five in fifth from his seventh starting position. As the front four stayed in line on the restart Underwood went to the middle of the track and blistered past both Hewitt and Hall into third before they would see the backstretch. Next on the agenda, zip by Rose for second and bring Hewitt along as the hitchhiker into third. Two laps later and Underwood was challenging Darland, the next lap Underwood was the leader and would never look back. Hewitt would muscle his way by Darland on the final lap to score the runner up position with Darland third followed by Scotty Weir and Rose rounded out the top five. 

“I really like getting around this track. I can’t say what an awesome feeling it was to pass Dave Darland for the lead, but I had to concentrate on the race. But to finish in front of guys like Darland and Dallas Hewitt really means a lot. And then to come to the winner’s circle and see the smile on Jack’s (Hewitt) face, it was all worth it. Just so excited, the car was great tonight,” finished Underwood.

“On that restart Lee (Underwood) went right by me, that middle was the place to be. I found out the car was really good when I moved down there were Lee was in the middle groove, it was really good. A couple laps short tonight but, congratulations to Lee. I am just happy to be here, if you never met my Uncle Jack Hewitt you should. He will either make you laugh or embarrass you to death,” finished Hewitt.
 
A dejected Darland had to settle for third. “We were pretty good early, but just not as good as those couple of cars in front of us. You know BOSS has this open tire rule, we hardly ever get in that situation but rarely, we just missed it tonight,” said Darland.         

 

 

Westfall Wins Atomic / Hewitt Classic TONIGHT at WRP!



Matt Westfall, driving the Ray Marshall owned #33M, scored his 3rd win in the last 4 events last night at Atomic Speedway.  Westfall started from 10th in the 20 car field for the "Open Wheel Championship" weekend.  Tonight, the series moves on to Waynesfield Raceway Park for the "Jack Hewitt Classic".  In the last BOSS event at Waynesfield on July 7th, Westfall charged from 14th to win the race on the last lap!  


Last night, 25 non wing sprint cars were on hand at Atomic.  Heat race wins went to Ty Tilton, Dustin Webber, and Joe Liguori.  Webber's heat 2 win was his first in a sprint car!  The B-Main event was won by Mike Miller with an exciting finish for the final transfer between Eric Semple and Travis Welpott, with heavy contact at the stripe, Semple's car vaulted the wheels on Welpott, and jumped forward enough to steal the position.  Welpott made hard cantact with the front stretch wall and Semple wound up on top of the inside guardrail.


In the main event, points leader Bill Rose started outside front row and blitzed out to an early lead.  A few laps into the event and Cody Gardner from Milford, Ohio tracked down Rose and took the lead in turn 1 and 2.  Gardner, in search of his first ever sprint car main event win, appeared to be the car to beat as he opened a moderate gap on the field.


Three cautions slowed the event.  The first on lap 9 when Matt Cooley made heavy contact with the front stretch wall ending his night.  On the restart, it was Gardner, Rose and Westfall already from 10th to 3rd with Carmen Perigo and track favorite Kory Crabtree rounding out the top 5.


Back under Green, Gardner continued to lead as Westfall slipped past Rose for the runner-up spot.  A lap 11 caution for a spin, put Westfall right on the rear bumper of Gardner's Appco Racing 9G.  He wasted little time on the restart and took command, never to be headed, despite one late race caution that set up a 2 lap shootout.


At the finish it was Westfall and Gardner with Paul Dues charging from 14th to 3rd to take the final podium spot.  Crabtree and Rose completed the top 5.  The balance of the top 10 included Michael Fischesser, Carmen Perigo, Mike Miller, Kyle Simon and Brandon Whited.


Tonight, the BOSS tour heads up to Waynesfield Raceway Park for the Jack Hewitt Classic paying $3,000 to win.  Make plans to join us there!  The last 2 BOSS features at Waynesfield have seen last lap passes for the wins!  The last 3 BOSS tour winners have started from the 14th, 9th and 10th starting spots!

Ty Tilton From 9th to 1st for First BOSS WIN


For the eighth time since 2012, the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series touring stars took on the Monster Half Mile at the Miley family's Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Motor Speedway.  And for the eighth time, a new face graced victory lane.  Last night, it was Lima, Ohio pilot, Ty Tilton, who picked up his first ever BOSS sprint car win.  After making the redraw he then drew the worst pill in the bucket. Tilton started 9th and methodically worked his way to the front in the Performance Powder Coating, Tilton Trucking, Schaeffer's Oil, Benic Enterprises, Claxton Engines, Wide Open Graphics, Lee's Chicken of Lima #42.  


The evening began with 21 cars signed in for racing action.  The field was divided into three heat races with the top 3 finishers advancing to the redraw.  TCB Speed heat race #1 was won by Kory Crabtree who charged from 5th to run the high side to a convincing win.  Hoosier Tire / American Racer Tire heat race #2 was won in equally dominating fashion by Cody Gardner who started from 4th.  Gardner had set the fastest times of the night during hot laps and again in heat race action.  All Pro Cylinder Heads heat race #3 found yet another convincing win, this time by current tour point leader, Bill Rose, who started 2nd and checked out for his win.


Following 3 heat races with convincing winners, certainly some fans may have thought the main event could be a snoozer.  They could not have been more wrong.  Twenty-one of the bravest in the country roared to the starters green flag, and immediately cars were 3 and 4 wide.  Slide jobs on the monster half mile at PPMS are sliders that last 100 or more yards!  There were "hold your breath moments" almost every lap!


The initial start saw tour regular, Bob McMillin, get upside down in turn 3.  He climbed from the car and walked away, but the race required a complete restart.  Outside pole sitter, Bill Rose, immediately took command and opened a moderate lead.  Within a lap, polesitter Cole Ketcham tucked into the runnerup spot with Cody Gardner in 3rd.


Ketcham kept pace with Rose as Gardner closed to battle for the runner-up spot.  On lap 10, Gardner was able to make the move around Ketcham, and set sail for the leader.  Two laps later, Ketcham caught the fence in turn 1, taking a nasty flip, but climbing from his #41 unhurt.  


Back under green, Rose continued to show the way with Cody Gardner now slowly closing the gap.  But as fans focused on the race for the lead, Ty Tilton was on a mission a lane lower than the front 2 cars.  As Gardner finally got the run on Rose for the lead, Tilton made it three wide off turn 4 and stole the lead at the line.  


As the final laps wound down, Tilton pulled away to a dozen car length lead with Gardner riding the rim in second and Rose back to third.  Kory Crabtree, who had started 6th, got rolling well late and got to fourth place at the line.  Local wing driver Brandon Matus charged from 11th to complete the top 5.  Paul Dues earned the Bridge Restaurant "Hard Charger" award by starting 16th and getting to 6th.  Carmen Perigo, Matt Cooley, Jeremy Kornbau, and Joe Liguori completed the top 10.


Next up for BOSS is a 2 day weekend this Friday and Saturday, August 3rd and 4th.  Friday is the Open Wheel Championship at Atomic Speedway paying $2,000 to win.  The Saturday show is the Jack Hewitt Classic at Waynesfield Raceway Park paying $3,000 to win.  Both venues have been the site of absolutely epic finishes including last year's Hewitt Classic when Drew Rader slipped past USAC champ Dave Darland to win by about 6 inches!  Watch for details on both shows in the coming days.

BOSS Heads For The Monster Half Mile


After a 2 week hiatus, the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series is set to return to action in a big way.  The Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Motor Speedway has hosted the tour sice its inception and always seems to produce great racing.  One of the few TRUE half miles in the midwest, PPMS measures a half mile along the inside groove and is between 80 and 90 feet wide around the track.

Bill Rose of Plainfield, Indiana will lead the BOSS touring stars into battle as the current points leader.  Ty Tilton of Lima, Ohio holds a slim advantage over Matt Cooley of Greenville, Ohio for the runner-up spot.  Joe Liguori of Tampa, Florida holds the fourth spot with Mike Miller of Wapakoneta, Ohio rounding out the top 5.  Sixth through tenth include Paul Dues, Cody Gardner, Chad Wilson, Bob McMillin and Kory Crabtree.  The balance of the top 15 is made up with Cole Ketcham, Steve Little, Buddy Lowther, Ted Hines and Lee Underwood.


Joining the BOSS traditional wingless sprints will be the RUSH crate late models and Pro Stocks who will both be running double features.  The Hobby Stocks, Young Guns and Open Four's will also be on the card.

Westfall Sweeps Route 44/Waynesfield BOSS Double


Matt Westfall from Ludlow Falls, Ohio claimed both nights of the BOSS border battle driving the Ray Marshall Motorsports 33M.  Friday night at Route 44 Speedway in Liberty, Indiana, he started from the 7th spot.  The next night, Matt would double that charge with a run from the 14th starting position to win the "Dick Spencer Memorial" at Greg and Tami Shob'e Waynesfield Raceway Park!


At Route 44 Speedway, twenty-seven non wing sprint cars signed in for battle on the tricky 1/4 mile oval.  Heat race wins went to Chris Phillips, Cole Ketcham, Ty Tilton and Matt Westfall.  Heat race #2 saw Kory Crabtree take a wild ride in the Lou Gagliardi / Dom's Gulf 77 machine.  A wild backstretch flip saw Crabtree climb out okay, but done for the evening.  The B-Main event was won by Dallas Hewitt.


Matt Cooley, from the pole, grabbed the early lead.  Working lap #2, he spun to bring out the first caution flag.  With a reworked race track from last week, the track crew struggled to keep enough moisture in the track.  A red flag was displayed to water the track out of safety concerns for the competitors.


With one lap in the books, the race was resumed and 2014 title winner Mike Miller showed the way through lap 5.  As the freshly watered track began to change, Michael Fischesser was able to make the top groove work to perfection as he rolled to the lead on lap 6.  From that point on, it appeared he was headed for his first tour victory.  However, working lapped traffic on lap 19, Fischesser wound up making hard contact with the turn 3 wall, eliminating him from the event.


Matt Westfall then inherited the lead and led the remaining laps, but not without some excitement.  He, along with a few other cars, ran so high in turns 3 and 4, multiple cars climbed the wall with the right side tires, but managed to motor on.  At the strip, the top 10 were Westfall, Garrett Abrams, Chris Phillips, Scotty Weir, Brandon Whited, Carmen Perigo, Ty Tilton, Joe Liguori, Travis Welpott and J.J. Hughes.


On Saturday, thirty-four cars signed in for competition.  The four heat races were claimed by Landon Simon, Luke Hall, Mike Miller and Drew Rader.  Steve Little took a violent ride in turn 3 and 4 during heat #1, but emerged unhurt.  The twin B-Main events were won by Cole Ketcham and Scotty Weir.


The 25 lap "Dick Spencer Memorial" was paced early by polesitter Landon Simon who appeared to be on his way to an easy victory. The race's only red flag flew when Paul Dues got together with Mike Miller and flipped into turn #1.  Dues' luck has been terrible as of late, but thankfully, he too emerged unhurt.


With the green back out and Simon still showing the way, it was Luke Hall taking aim at the top spot reeling in the leader.  But back in the pack, on the move from 14th starting spot, was Westfall.  Hall got to Simon first and the pair traded slide jobs, then entered heavy lapped traffic.  The high speed chess match was on, slicing and dicing on the ragged edge.  But the battle and the traffic allowed Westfall to close on the lead duo.  With the white flag in the air, the trio was almost 3 wide for the lead into turn one.  Westfall made just enough contact with Simon to send him around, bringing out the caution.


With scoring reverted to the last time across the line, Luke Hall now found himself the race leader with Westfall in second and a one lap shootout for the win.  The final lap was a titanic throwdown in which Westfall managed to steal the win with a last corner pass, taking the Marshall 33M to its second win in as many nights, among a mixed crowd reaction of cheers and jeers.


Following Westfall and Hall at the line were Steve Iriwn, Cody Gardner, and Dustin Ingle completing the top 5.  The rest of the top 10 included Bill Rose, Drew Rader, Ty Tilton, Matt Cooley and Scotty Weir.


Complete results from both nights will be on the website soon.


Next up for BOSS is a visit to the MONSTER true half mile at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway on Saturday, July 28th.  The largest and widest track on the tour, it always produces some great racing.   


BOSS wishes to extend a huge THANK YOU to both race tracks and their staffs for a great job.  And to our many fine sponsors who make the tour what it is!

BOSS Border Battle Route 44 / Waynesfield


The Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series heads into the middle of the schedule with a big doubleheader weekend ahead.  Route 44 Speedway in Liberty, Indiana will host the tour Friday night, July 6th.  Teams will then cross the state line to compete in the "Dick Spencer Memorial" at Waynesfield Raceway Park on Saturday, July 7th.


Opened in 1970, the Route 44 Speedway was formerly known as Whitewater Valley Speedway.  The quarter mile dirt oval also went by the name Union County Speedway at one time.  One year ago, Shawn Crouch took the helm of the speedway, renaming it Route 44 Speedway.  The track has held 2 tour events.  Logan Hupp defeated USAC star Kevin Thomas Jr in a slide job battle for the ages in 2014.  One year ago, Shane Cottle won in the Paul Hazen 57.  Both shows had the same car count of 35 non wing sprints.


Saturday, the tour will hit Waynesfield Raceway Park for the 8th time in history.  Opened in 2000 as a 1/5 mile oval, the quarter mile track was added in 2003.  Currently, the only weekly home of traditional non wing sprint car action, WRP has been a staple of the BOSS schedule hosting events every season back to 2012.  The previous 7 sanctioned events have had an average car count of 39.7 cars.  Amazingly, 7 different winners have graced victory lane in as many events.  Thomas Meseraull, Luke Hall, Matt Westfall, Dallas Hewitt, Kody Swanson, Justin Owen and Drew Rader have all taken checkered flags against stacked fields of race cars!


Bill Rose of Plainfield, Indiana will bring the tour travelers into the weekend with the point lead.  Paul Dues of Minster, Ohio sits in the #2 spot after picking up his first ever series win in Kentucky.  Greenville Gasser, Matt Cooley, sits in the third spot with Joe Liguori and Ty Tilton rounding out the top 5.


At Route 44 Speedway, pit gates will open at 4 with grandstands open at 5 pm.  Hot laps will be at 7 pm with racing at 8.  General admission will be $15 with students, seniors, and veterans admitted for $13.  (High school and college students must show school ID).  Children 8 and under are free in general admission.  Pit passes will be $30.  


Saturday at Waynesfield, pit gates also open at 4 with grandstands at 5.  Hot laps will begin at 6 with racing action at 7 pm.  General admission is $15 with children 11-15 just $6 while 10 and under are free.  pit passes are $30.  We will be using the yellow transponders and Waynesfield.  Teams who do not have them will be able to rent them for $10 from the track.


Both events will feature the standard BOSS purse of $1500 to win and $250 to start with $100 guaranteed tow money to any team who fails to start the main event.  There are no fees to race on this tour.  These are true "outlaw" sprint cars with no weight rule and an "open" tire rule.  


This weekend's official host hotel is the Howard Johnson Hotel in Lima, Ohio.

Coleman Gulick, from Binghampton, NY, and crew in victory lane after winning the Lernerville BOSS main event on July 29th.

Gulick Scores in Maiden BOSS Appearance

 

Sarver, PA (June 30, 2018) Binghamton, New York’s Coleman Gullick proved to be the class of the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series on Friday night at The Action Track as he made his way past Bill Rose and Jack Sodeman Jr. in the early portion of the 25 lap main event and never looked back en route to Terry Bowser Victory Lane.  It was his first ever appearance with the BOSS tour.

 

Gullick had to survive a series of late race restarts and an oncoming Dan Shetler who had a very strong performance in coming home second on the podium while keeping ahead of a lurking Kory Crabtree who had moved forward at a fast clip from his 17th starting spot. Crabtree and Shetler would have one final chance to overtake Gullick on a lap 23 restart where Crabtree would suffer heartbreak, cutting his tire while trying to take the second position from Shetler which brought out the final caution of the race, setting up a one lap shootout for the win where Gullick would peg the restart and soon after crossed under the checkers first, ahead of Shetler and series point leader Bill Rose.

 

2017 Buckeye Outlaw Sprint feature winner AJ Flick looked to have a great chance to repeat after a convincing heat win while redrawing the pole position for the main event. Flick bolted out to a firm early lead but would wind up tangling with the cushion in turn two with five laps in the books.

Lernerville Speedway Next for BOSS

The Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series is set to roll into Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania this Friday night, June 29th.  This is always one of the most exciting venues along the trail and this year's event should be no exception.

This annual stop has seen 5 different winners over the years.  Local drivers Jack Sodeman (2013) and A.J.

Hall Nips Gunn at Wire in Another Fantastic BOSS Finish

By Brian Liskai
 

FREMONT, Ohio - Luke Hall passed Tyler Gunn in the last corner of the last lap to score his first career win at Fremont Speedway Saturday, June 16 in the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) on Fort Ball Pizza Palace Night. Hall, from Bradford, Ohio, overcame a one and half second lead the last four laps after coming from his ninth starting spot in the 25-lap A-main. After taking the white flag he threw a slider at Gunn in turns one and two but Gunn cut back under to maintain the lead down the back stretch. Hall blasted under Gunn entering turn three and slid up in front as Gunn tried to turn back under but Hall won the drag race to the checkers. "I know he (Gunn) is a hometown guy and I wasn't trying to crash him by any means but we came here to win, not run second. I definitely didn't want to tear his stuff up and he came by me afterwards and I'm glad that didn't happen. That's just hard racing for the win. I'm worn out as all get out. You just have to want it a little bit more and throw it in there a little bit harder. Jack Hewitt helped me get started and when they took that ledge off it heart my heart...that's the only thing he taught us how to run. But luckily it got a good cushion back again and it worked out in our favor," Hall said in the Engine Pro Victory Lane. "I have to thank the Nelsons, Hawk Chassis, Site X, Bierly Well Drilling, Quest Credit Union and JABB Insulation." In the 25 lap BOSS A-main Dallas Hewitt and Lee Underwood brought the field to green with Hewitt gaining the advance over Ty Tilton, Underwood, Andy Feil, Dustin Ingle, Mike Miller, Gunn and Joe Liguori. The first caution flew with three laps scored for a spin by Paul Dues and Matt Cooley. All eyes were on Little 500 winner Kody Swanson who had worked his way from 12th to fifth in just three laps. When the green reappeared Hewitt continued to lead as Gunn blasted into second while Tilton tried to hold off Underwood and Swanson for third. Hall got up on the wheel and powered from sixth to third in three laps and challenged Gunn for second by lap 10. Both Gunn and Hall moved to within striking distance of Hewitt at the half-way point with Gunn taking over the top spot on lap 14. Hall drove into second on lap 16 just before the caution flew for Dues with nine laps to go. Following a caution on lap 18, Gunn got a great restart and pulled away slightly from Hall while Hewitt, Swanson and 19th starter Brian Smith were locked in an entertaining battle for third. Gunn seemed well on his way to his first non-wing sprint car win, building a 1.35 second lead with just four laps to go. Hall, however, had other plans, methodically eating into Gunn's lead. As they drove to the white, Hall was glued to Gunn's rear bumper and tried a slider into one and two. Gunn turned back under the pair went side by side into the final two turns with Hall sliding in front and nearly making contact with Gunn. Hall won the drag race to the checkers with Swanson, Underwood and Smith rounding out the top five. For more information go to www.buckeyesprints.com

Dues Scores First BOSS Win at Richmond

 

For the first time in the eight seasons of BOSS competition, the touring series traveled south of the Ohio River and into the Bluegrass state.  The bullring at Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Kentucky played host to a scheduled doubleheader.

 

Saturday night, Minster, Ohio driver Paul Dues raced to his first ever tour win on an excitingly fast and tacky race track.  Dues officially led all 25 laps, but the box score would do little in describing this, one of the most exciting main events in tour history.  Greenville, Ohio driver, Matt Cooley, took the lead in turn one and two on the final lap and led down the backstretch, and the determined Dues dove back under Cooley in 3 and 4 amid lapped traffic.  The duo then raced to the line with contact and both cars on the ragged edge of control!

 

The hot and muggy Saturday show began with 22 sprint cars signed in for battle.  A brief rain shower moved through around 4 pm forcing a later than anticipated start, but provided one of the best race tracks possible.

 

Kyle Simon started 4th and tracked down and passed Justin Owen to claim the win in TCB Speed heat race one.  Unfortunately, Cole Ketcham got pinched into the wall and rolled his car in the first heat race.  In Hoosier Racing Tire heat race #2, Cody Gardner also won from the number 4 starting spot.  The All Pro Cylinder Heads third and final heat race was won from the pole by 2014 BOSS champ Mike Miller.

 

The 25 Lap main event was paced to the green flag by the front row of Paul Dues and Justin Owen with Michael Fischesser and Cody Gardner in row 2. 

 

At the drop of the green, Dues immediately took command.  Michael Fischesser rocketed to the runner-up spot and Matt Cooley was already on the charge from his 8th starting spot.

 

The first caution would fly on lap 5 when Kyle Simon spun in turn 3 and 4.  As the cars slowed, racing room was at a premium on the tight 1/4 mile bullring and Cole Ketcham rode over a wheel and flipped his back-up car, making it his second time upside down in the night.  He was okay and unanimously voted to receive the J F Construction "Hard Luck Award".

 

On the restart, Dues again pulled to the lead.  Justin Owen was able to get by his buddy Fischesser for the runner-up spot with Cooley already up to 4th and Gardner holding onto 5th.  For almost the entire race, the front 4 cars remained in a tight group.  At the halfway mark, the top 5 were Dues, Owen, Fischesser, Cooley and a hard charging Dallas Hewitt who had started 11th.

 

On lap 15, chaos struck at Richmond.  A tangle in turn one brought out the yellow flag as Cody Gardner spun, taking Mike Miller with him.  Lee Underwood stopped to avoid contact.  Meanwhile, as cars slowed down the front stretch, Dallas Hewitt made contact with Michael Fischesser and Steve Little also got a piece of the melee.  All 3 involved in the front stretch incident were eliminated and all drivers were okay.

 

As cars were pushed to restart the event, a push truck climbed the left rear tire of Dues, the race leader.  Dues was allowed to roll to the pit area where a series official was present to make sure that the only work done was replacing the broken left rear shock.  He then returned to the race, more determined than ever. 

 

Over the final 10 laps, Matt Cooley found his momentum and became the fastest car on the race track getting by Owen for second and setting sail for the race leader.  As the laps wound down, the lead duo caught the back markers.  Both young men were hungry for their first career tour wins and once past the white flag, all their cards were thrown on the table.  Cooley was able to blast by into the lead in turn one and two and appeared headed for certain victory with less than a half lap to go.  As he cautiously worked traffic into turn 3, Dues found the magic to throw it into 3 a little harder. 

 

There was contact between the lead duo and both cars were out of shape off turn 4.  But Dues held on beating a sideways Cooley to the line with veteran racer Bill Rose making a great late race charge to run 3rd.  Justin Owen dropped to 4th and Joe Liguori ran a consistent event to round out the top 5.  The rest of the top 10 included Ty Tilton, Ted Hines, Lee Underwood, Dustin Smith and Chad Wilson.

 

In victory lane, the elated Dues gave the fans an  epic cage stand and steering wheel toss!  Although the crowd was in the hundreds, the roar of approval had the sound of ten-thousand.  For most in the general admission section, it was their first ever traditional sprint car event and the BOSS drivers gave them an epic show.

 

The Sunday show found 21 cars signed in for battle.  The first 2 heat races featured last lap passes for the wins.  Lee Underwood took TCB Speed heat race #1 and Bill Rose stole Lias Tire/American Racer heat race #2.  Mike Miller won All Pro Cylinder Heads heat #3. 

 

Previous night's runner-up, Matt Cooley, gave the Sunday fans a thrill.  While leading heat race #2, Cooley made contact with the concrete wall in turn 1 and when the front end sucked over, Cooley road the wall through turn 1 and 2, then proceeded to exit the facility going out of the park in turn 2.  Cooley was fine and made quick repairs for the main event.

 

Unfortunately, a brief rain shower passed through around 4 pm delaying the start of the main events.  With a 6 pm Sunday racing curfew and more rain approaching on the radar, Richmond Raceway did not feel the event could be completed.  All 21 race teams were paid $300 plus their heat race earnings, in lieu of running the main event, which will not be rescheduled.

 

The next BOSS events will be another weekend doubleheader.  Friday, June 8th catch the series at Limaland Motorsports Park in Lima, Ohio.  The next night, the tour will move on to Montpelier Motor Speedway in Montpelier, Indiana.

BOSS Makes Inaugural Visit to the Bluegrass State May 26-27


Mother nature has scored wins in 2 of the first 3 events now for the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series.  This weekend, the tour will make history with a doubleheader weekend at Richmond Raceway in Kentucky.  This will mark the first time the series has visited the Bluegrass state and will be the first ever traditional wingless sprint car events in the track's storied 52 year history.


The USAC sprint cars ran at Richmond in 1988 but it was a winged show and Memphis, Tennessee's Mike Ward defeated Kenny Jacobs and Steve Butler to secure the win.  In 1990, the winged USAC sprint cars returned and Jack Hewitt claimed the win over Rick Hood and Tony Elliott.  A trio of USAC midget events were held here from 1991 to 1996 won by Mike Streicher, Dan Drinan and Tony Elliott.  


One year ago, the track's future was uncertain.  In stepped the new owner and promoter, Bill Lupinos, a native of New York.  Lupinos and his staff have been hard at work returning Richmond Raceway to glory and BOSS is proud to bring sprint cars back to the bad little Kentucky bullring.


On Saturday, pit gates will open at 2 pm with grandstands opening at 4 pm.  Hot laps will begin at 6 with racing at 7.  Adult general admission is $20 while kids age 6-12 is $15.  Pit Passes are $35 for all ages.  This will be a complete show for BOSS non wing sprints, and the track's regular divisions for modifieds, super stocks and 4 cylinders.


On Sunday, both gates will open at 11 am with hot laps at 1 pm.  It will again be a complete show for BOSS sprints with an abbreviated program for the other 3 classes.  Gate prices will remain the same and racing must end by 6 pm due to a city ordinance on Sunday racing.


For teams competing, as always there are no fees of any kind to run with BOSS.  These events will pay the standard BOSS purse for both programs.  Lots of heat race and bonus awards up for grabs and are posted at the bottom of this press release.


TCB Speed will have their parts trailer fully stocked with methanol, tires and parts.  The official host hotel for the weekend is the LaQuinta Inn in Richmond just off I-75 at the 421 bypass.  Phone 859-623-9121 for a reservation.  Be sure to ask for the BOSS Racer's Rate of $81 plus tax.  Rig parking will be very limited.  Teams are encouraged to leave trailers at the track.  BOSS will be providing overnight security at the track.  Both race teams and fans are encouraged to use the host hotel.  Camping at the track is free of charge.

BOSS Lawrenceburg Bound This Saturday


The Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series is set to make its only appearance of 2018 at the legendary Lawrenceburg Speedway this Saturday, May 19th.  This stop is one fans will not want to miss as it is always a great car count when the Kelsey Chevrolet Sprint Cars defend their home turf from the traveling invaders.  One year ago, this event drew 41 entries before a thunderstorm washed out the night following 5 excellent heat races!


After mother nature claimed the season opener, NASCAR XFinity driver, Chase Briscoe won round #2 at Fremont Speedway.  Defending series champion, Dustin Smith, led most of the event before climbing an infield tire, bicycling, and falling to 3rd.  He virtually leads the early points as the highest current full time driver in the standings.  Bill Rose, Carmen Perigo and Mike Miller also had top 10 finishes at Fremont and come into Lawrenceburg as the closest challengers to Smith.


In all, 17 teams have signed in with plans to chase the 2018 tour title.  Other drivers on the circuit include Chad Wilson, Steve Little, Paul Dues, Cody Gardner, Matt Cooley, Buddy Lowther, Bob McMillin, Joe Liguori, Cole Ketcham, Kirk Jeffries, Kyle May, Ted Hines and Ty Tilton.  With the Lawrenceburg Speedway regulars mixed in, this is sure to be one of the best fields of the season.


The standard BOSS purse of $1,500 to win and $250 to start is on the line.  As always, a plethora of bonus awards are on the table.  The tour's open tire rule is supported by both sprint car tire manufacturers and a free tire will be awarded to the highest feature finisher on all 4 of each brand.


Heat race cash is provided by 4 heat race sponsors in the amounts of $40, $30, $20 and $10 to the top 4 in each heat.  This money is provided by TCB Speed (the official BOSS parts supplier), Lias Tire / American Racer, Hoosier Racing Tire, and All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads and owner Bob Williams.


Other $50 cash bonus awards include the Apple Metal Polishing "Lucky Pill Draw", the Bridge Restaurant "Hard Charger Award", the Horne Performance Racing "Perseverance Award", the Cowen Truck Line "Steel Block Bonus", the J.F. Construction "Hard Luck Award", and finally, a $50 gift certificate from All Star Performance Products to the "Sweet Move of the Night".


Saturday's pit gates will open at 4 pm while general admission gates open at 5 pm.  Hot Laps will begin at 6 with racing action at 7.  Adult general admission is $17 while children age 7-12 are just $7 and kids 6 and under are free of charge.  Pit passes for all ages are $30.


For competing teams, there are no fees to race with the series.  Transponders are generously provided by Lawrenceburg Speedway free of charge.  For this event, MUFFLERS ARE REQUIRED!  


We look forward to seeing everyone this Saturday!


A special thanks goes out to our other sponsors who help make this series possible including:  FAST Signs, Superior Bearing Supply, The Blue Room Restaurant, Griff's Engines, Keizer Wheels, Saldana Tanks & Bladders, Cooley Cabinets and Superior Tank & Trailer.  

 

 

 

Wimmer Wins Inaugural BOSS Winged Event


A beautiful May Saturday greeted fans and teams for the inaugural winged sprint car event for the Buckeye Outlaw Series at Atomic Speedway last night.  A solid field of 26 teams signed in despite travel concerns over potential storms.  Brandon Wimmer, aboard the John Shewbrooks owned car number 79A took command on lap 16 of the 25 lap main event and sailed into the history books with the victory.


Cody Gardner and Nate Dussel brought the main event to the green flag.  It was 5th starting Cale Thomas who wasted little time in getting to the point and putting distance on the field.  Wimmer, who started from 4th, was quickly into the runnerup spot.  Polesitter Cody Gardner looped it out in turn 3 bringing out the first of 3 cautions.


Back under Green, Thomas continued to lead.  By the middle stages of the race, lapped traffic played a major role.  Cars were dicing side by side and sometimes 3 wide as the leaders approached.  


Two more cautions would slow the race on lap 13.  First, quick qualifier Danny Smith got high off the track in turn 2 and spun to a stop.  Before the next lap could be completed, a minor incident in turn 3 collected Nate Reeser and Lance Webb.


With the green flag displayed for the final time, it appeared Cale Thomas was well on his way to victory, but the tricky turn 2 saw Thomas slide up and off the backstretch, allowing Wimmer to close the gap and dive under Thomas in turn 3 working lap 16.


Once to the lead, he was never contested.  Behind him, the drama continued to unfold as Thomas again slid off turn 2, losing a few spots.  Bryan Nuckles and Ronnie Blair ran solid races to slide into the 2nd and 3rd spots at the finish, with Thomas recovering for 4th and Danny Smith, back from the tail, rounded out the top 5.


BOSS returns to action next Saturday, May 19th when the traditional non wing stars hit the high banks of Lawrenceburg Speedway.  The next winged sprint car event is currently slated for the Montpelier Motor Speedway on August 18th.

BOSS First Ever Winged Event Saturday at Atomic

A new era is set to begin this Saturday, May 12th when BOSS rolls into Atomic Speedway just south of Chillicothe, Ohio.  The traveling tour began in 2011 on the same highbanks of what was then known as K-C Raceway.  For the last seven seasons, the growth was phenomenal and the most common question was, "when will you do some wing races?"  

It has been 7 years in the making, but the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series is set to debut with what very well may be THE most exciting format in the winged sprint car world.  Only select events will happen in 2018, and a full tour is on tap in 2019.  We are very proud to make yet another tour debut at Atomic Speedway.

This Saturday will be special, not only or the inaugural winged event, it is also a celebration of the 65th anniversary of the premiere southern Ohio dirt track!  Special activities are planned and many race cars will be on display on the midway before the races.

For competing teams, there are NEVER any membership or entry fees with BOSS.  We will be enforcing a 1400 pound minimum weight rule with the driver after the race.  Top 3 in the main event will report to the scales.  Wings must be flat tops with a maximum 2" wickerbill.  Hoosier Tires are the official tire and the right rear only must be the national H series tires.  The HR15 is also legal in BOSS.  The left rear and front tires are open to any Hoosier brand race tire.   We will be using the yellow transponders and if you do not own one, they will be available for rent at the track for $15.  Pit gates will open at 3 pm.  

Saturday's payout will have $65 added to the standard BOSS winged purse as the winner will be racing for $3,065 to win.  Here is a complete breakdown of the main event payout:  3065, 1500, 1000, 700, 600, 550, 500, 475, 450, 425, 400, 380, 360, 340, 320, 300, 300, 300, 300, 300.  As with ALL BOSS events, any car competing in the evening who fails to start the main event will get $100 tow money.  As we have done for 7 years, payout for the A-Main will be by Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series checks.

The debut of the newest wing sprint car racing promises to bring what MAY be the most exciting format in the business.  Cars will draw into hot lap / heat race groups and will group qualify.  Heat races will invert one more car than what will transfer to the main event.  This will create a "musical chairs" type situation where the front 5 cars will be battling for 4 transfer spots with the fastest qualifier starting 5th!

Cars that transfer through their heat race will earn their fastest qualifying lap time back for the main event.  Non transfer cars will run a B-Main event which lines up based on heat race finishes.  In the B-Main, 4 or 5 cars may transfer (depending on number of heats) but the winner ONLY will also get his time back.  Balance of the transfers will start from the tail of the A.  This will put a great emphasis on WINNING the B-Main and NOT just transferring.

Once the A-Main provisional lineup is set, the night's fastest qualifier (who transferred through the heats) will pull a pill of  0, 4, 6 or 8 for the A-Main inversion.  The only cars eligible for the inversion MUST have transferred out of their heats.  The best the B-Main winner can start from (even if he was fast time) is the first car BEHIND the inversion.  If the "zero" is pulled and the fastest qualifier of the night WON the B-Main, he will start from the pole position.

Any format questions can be directed to sprinter14@hotmail.com.

For fans, in addition to the BOSS winged sprint car debut, you can also catch the late models, modifieds and sport mods on the same card.  Gates will open at 4 pm.  A special happy hour will be from 4-6 pm with $1.00 hot dogs and $1.50 Budweiser!  It will be a great way to stroll the midway on a forecasted beautiful day!

General admission for this special event is a very modest $15 with seniors and veterans admitted for $12.  Kids 12 and under are free.  Pit passes are $30 for adults and kids age 6-12 are admitted into the pits for just $20.  For this special 65th anniversary, any fans born in 1953 will be admitted for just $10!

Please make plans to join us as history is made and the all new BOSS winged sprint series takes flight!  For those unable to attend in person Saturday, watch for an announcement tomorrow night.  ISC Sports Network will once again offer a live pay-per-view broadcast of the entire event including the late models, modifieds and sport mods!

Briscoe Bags BOSS Bucks at Fremont
 
The 2018 season got underway last night for the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series with 28 cars on hand.  NASCAR XFinity Series driver, Chase Briscoe from Mitchell, Indiana, held off a determined Thomas Meseraull in the closing laps to score his first ever win with the tour.

In the 25 lap feature defending series champion Dustin Smith looked to have things well in control leading the first 19 laps. But he had to check up in heavy lapped traffic and Briscoe and Meseraull to pounce. Following a caution with four laps to go Meseraull drove to Briscoe's outside to take the lead but before the lap could be completed another caution flew handing the lead back to Briscoe. Briscoe did not waste the opportunity and held off  Meseraull the final three laps to score the close win, his first ever at Fremont Speedway.
 
Dustin Smith and Steve Little brought the non-wing BOSS sprint cars to the green for their 25-lap season opener. Smith grabbed the lead over fifth starter Trevor Kobylarz, Briscoe and Meseraull. Carmen Perigo brought out the caution with two laps scored and when the green flew so did Smith, pulling away from  Briscoe, Kobylarz and Meseraull. T-Mez took third a lap later as Smith had built a 1.6 second lead over Briscoe.
 
Smith's lead increased to 2.6 seconds by lap 12 as he prepared to race into heavy lapped traffic. Briscoe and Meseraull began to close and Smith's lead was only .7 seconds when he had to check up for a lapped car on lap 18, nearly spinning as Briscoe and Meseraull sliced through the lapped cars and Smith.
 
The yellow flag flew on lap 21 for a stopped Paul Dues with Briscoe leading Meseraull, Smith, Kobylarz, Bill Rose and Tyler Gunn. When the green reappeared Meseraull quickly jumped to the cushion to pull along side of Briscoe and took the lead just as the caution flew for a stalled Cody Gardner, handing the top spot back to Briscoe.
 
Briscoe dropped the hammer on the restart and held off Meseraull the final three laps for the win with Smith, 14th starter Matt Westfall and Rose rounding out the top five.

"That was cool. It's been awhile since I really ran dirt a lot. Today I ran three races. I ran over at Mid-Ohio in a sports car then the winged car and non-wing. It's awesome to get a win in this paint scheme. This is the paint scheme my grandpa always ran and my dad ran. We decided to bring it back this year.  I'm excited to call dad and see what he says. I can't say enough about my crew. They worked their tails off all weekend and they have another one tomorrow night. Thanks for all the fans for coming out and I look forward to coming back," Briscoe said.
 
"When I saw  Thomas there I knew he was going to be around the top and I felt as long as I didn't miss the bottom no one was going to pass me so I just kept trying to knock the cushion down as much as I could down there. It's pretty cool battling with T-Mez. He drove my car last year and he still drives it quite a bit. I probably got on it a little too early on that restart but I knew he was going to pass me if I didn't. I hope that was exciting for the fans," Briscoe added beside his Mid-American Salt; Cunningham; Hoosier Tires backed #5.

2018 Season Opener at Fremont May 5th


After losing the scheduled season opener two weeks ago to mother nature, the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series is ready to get 2018 underway this Saturday, May 5th at Fremont Speedway.  Known as the "Track That Action Built" it is located at the historic Sandusky County Fairgrounds.  A seat under the covered wooden grandstand is a trip back in time to when most of auto racing took place on fairground horse tracks.


For sprint car fans, this weekend's event could be a paradise.  Joining the "Last True Outlaws" of the BOSS traditional non wing sprints will be the FAST 410 winged sprint cars and the FAST 305 winged sprint cars in a showdown versus the 360's!   


Dustin Smith from Russiaville, Indiana picked up his second series crown in 2017, tying Shawn Westerfeld of Guilford, Indiana as the only repeat titlist.  Smith returns in search of becoming the first 3 time champion.  He will be back in the pilot's seat of Lou Gagliardi's Dom's Gulf sponsored #77.  


The 2014 series champion, Mike Miller from Wapakoneta, Ohio, plans a full time assault on the tour in hopes of making it a 3 way tie with a repeat championship.  Last year's 4th and 5th place points drivers, Chad Little and Steve Little, are also returning to chase the 2018 crown.


As always, a full 15 teams and drivers plan to follow the tour full time.  And every season, the field gets tougher!  Other drivers returning full time include Paul Dues, Matt Cooley, Cody Gardner, Bob McMillen, Buddy Lowther,  Kirk Jeffries, Joe Liguori and Carmen Perigo.  New to the tour are Ty Tilton, Ted Hines, and Kyle May.


As always, expect a great field of local challengers , as well as some Indiana and Michigan wingless specialists!  Certainly some drivers will be doing double duty as well.  


It is also "Local Food Bank Night".  Fans and teams are encouraged to bring nonperishable food items to be donated to local food banks.


On raceday, gates will open at 4 pm with racing action at 7.  Adult general admission is $20 with seniors admitted for $18 and students for $15.  Children 10 and under are admitted free in general admission.  Pit passes will be $30 each.


For teams competing with BOSS, there are no membership fees or entry fees.  The tire rule is open and there is no minimum weight rule.  For teams doing double duty, you MUST REMOVE THE WING SLIDERS.  This is a safety precaution for you and the drivers around you.  Mufflers are NOT required on the BOSS wingless sprints.  We will be using the yellow transponders and they will be available for rent from the track for $5.  The format will be the standard BOSS pill draw for heat lineups.


The payout for this event is the standard as follows:  1500, 900, 700, 600, 500, 450, 400, 375, 350, 325, 300, 290, 280, 270, 260, 250, 250, 250, 250, 250.


If we have 29 cars or less, we start 20 in the main event.  If we have 30-39 cars, we will start 22 in the main event.  If we have 40 or more, we will start 24 cars in the main event.


Heat Race Sponsors will be providing $100 per heat paid to the top 4 finishers in the amounts of 40, 30, 20, 10.  These sponsors are TCB Speed, American Racer, Hoosier Racing Tire, and All Pro Cylinder Heads of Johnstown, Ohio.  Drivers and teams, please remember, TCB Speed will have a full inventory on hand to service your parts needs at all events in 2018.

Our 2018 heat race sponsors, who deserve a lot of credit, are TCB Speed, Lias Tire/American Racer, Hoosier Race Tire, and All Pro Aluminum Heads.  All heat races pay the top 4 finishers $40, $30, $20, and $10 in extra cash from these fine contributors.


Bonus awards for 2018 include:  "Lucky Pill Draw" from Apple Metal Polishing in Eldorodo.  The "Hard Luck Award" by J.F. Construction of Bucyrus.  This years "Hard Charger Award" is again sponsored by The Bridge Restaurant in Sidney.  The "Perseverance Aaward" will be provided by Horne Performance Racing owner Rick Horne.  As always, the drivers running steel engine blocks will have a race within a race, competing for the "Steel Block Bonus" provided by Cowen Truck Line from Perrysville.  Finally, the "Sweet Move" award will be sponsored by All Star Performance who is new to the tour for 2018.


Keeping with tradition, there will be no tire rule in 2018 (or the forseeable future).  However, both American Racer and Hoosier racing tires fully endorse the last true outlaws of racing.  In addition to their heat race sponsorships, both tire manufacturers provide a free tire at every race to the highest main event finisher competing exclusively on their brand of tire.  


Many other fine folks are pitching in once again to make the tour special.  At Saturday's season opener, Superior Bearing and Supply of Bradenton, Florida has donated two extra $50 gift certificates.  The Blue Room restaurant in Kirby, Ohio provides free drinks for the drivers and teams at every event.  Help also comes from FAST Signs in Dayton, Superior Tank & Trailer in Beach City, Cooley Cabinets of Greenville, McMillin Apiaries of Wampum, Pennsylvania, Keizer Aluminum Wheels from Orange City, Iowa, Saldana Racing Products from Brownsburg, Indiana and a great race fan, Dave Baumgardner from Cleveland.  


With 2018 shaping up to be another banner season, make plans to join us at an event near you!  This Saturday, at Atomic, gates will open at 4 pm with pit gates open at 3.  Hot laps will begin at 6.  General admission is just $15 with veterans and seniors admitted for $12.  Kids 12 and under are admitted free in general admission.  Pit passes are $30 for ages 13 and up, while kids age 6-12 can enter the pits for $20.  Kids 5 and under are free.

2018 BOSS Schedule Update


With less than 3 weeks until opening day at Atomic Speedway, the BOSS officials are hard at work preparing for another exciting race season.  The last seven seasons, the last true outlaws of auto racing have thrilled fans in four states with around 150 different drivers competing annually in tour events.  This year, the tour makes its initial foray into Kentucky, to bring the tour to 5 states of coverage.  


Due to management changes at Ponderosa Speedway in Kentucky, the events there have all been cancelled.  The Saturday, May 26th event has been moved to Richmond Raceway in Richmond, Kentucky.  This now makes a doubleheader weekend as Richmond was already scheduled for Sunday, May 27th.  However, in a new twist for the tour drivers, the Sunday event will be a DAYTIME program with action starting at 1 pm.  The BOSS tour and Richmond promoter, Bill Lupinos, have made arrangements to limit Sunday's on-track activity in support classes to not only allow better track conditions, but also to guarantee getting our teams on the road home at an early hour!


The doubleheader finale that was scheduled for October 12-13 has also been cancelled.  Series officials are negotiating with tracks to add a final championship event.  Watch for an announcement coming soon on the date and facility to host the final event of the season.


An added experiment for 2018 will be a handful of winged 410 sprint car events, two of which will be co-sanctioned with the FAST sprint series.  With the recent cancellation of the Millstream Speedway event, Atomic Speedway will now play host to the first ever winged event.  Perhaps a fitting opening event, to match the first ever BOSS non wing event held on the same track in 2011.


The winged events will be a completely separate series.  With many open weekends on the traditional schedule, the opportunity is there for BOSS to grow into two different racing tours.  Bigger plans are already in place for 2019 for both varieties of racing.

2018 BOSS Non Wing Sprint Car Schedule Release


With the 2018 season just weeks away, the staff of the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series has been hard at work preparing for the upcoming tour.  The last 7 seasons have seen steady growth with every new season.  This year will be no exception.  The last true outlaws of auto racing will once again battle on the hallowed grounds of several of the midwest's best dirt ovals.  Every year, races have been held in Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania.  This year, the tour returns to West Virginia for one event and ventures into the Bluegrass State of Kentucky for the first time ever.


Things will get underway one weekend earlier with the season opener slated for Saturday, April 14th at Atomic Speedway just south of Chillicothe.  The inaugural BOSS event was held there in 2011 and it now serves as the annual lid lifter on each new season.  The month of May finds the series making stops at 2 of the longest continually active tracks with BOSS, May 5th at Fremont Speedway and May 19th at Lawrenceburg Speedway just across the Ohio River.


The first venture into Kentucky comes on Saturday, May 26th when the stars and cars of BOSS tackle Ponderosa Speedway's tricky D-shaped 1/3 mile red clay oval.  This event will serve as a tune-up for the end of the season when the championship is decided on the same track with 2 complete shows October 12th and 13th.  The May event is planned to be a doubleheader weekend as well, however, no contract has been signed and 2 different tracks are negotiating for that event.  Watch for details on that Sunday show to be added in the coming weeks.


The month of June finds a return to Limaland Motorsports Park on June 8th with Montpelier Motor Speedway the next night.  A week later, the tour heads back to the "Track That Action Built", Fremont Speedway, for the second event of the season on June 16.  After a weekend off, the doubleheader weekend of Lernerville Speedway (June 29) and Tyler County Speedway (June 30) wraps up the month.  BOSS last raced at Tyler County in 2015.  This is the most prestigious facility in West Virginia and features events like the Mega 100 and the Hillbilly 100 for the dirt late models.


July starts off with a return to Route 44 Speedway near Liberty, Indiana on Friday, July 6th and the next night will be the annual Dick Spencer Memorial at Waynesfield Raceway Park on July 7th.  A few weeks later, the tour will make its annual stop at the Monster Half Mile - Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway on July 28th.


The month of August really heats up and the purses get bigger!  Friday, August 3rd will be the "Open Wheel Classic" at Atomic Speedway for $2,000 to win followed the next night by the "Jack Hewitt Classic" at Waynesfield paying $3,000 to win.  The very next weekend, the teams will roll into Mansfield Motor Speedway for the 2nd annual "Great Lakes Nationals" paying $5,000 to win on Saturday night.  This will be a 2 day show with preliminary heat races running on Friday BUT with increased heat race payouts and a very good Saturday payday!


The month of August gets even better at the end.  Kokomo Speedway and the United States Auto Club extended an invitation to make BOSS a part of the most anticipated non wing sprint car event, the Kokomo "Sprint Car Smackdown".  Saturday, August 25th is the final night of the 4 day event, and BOSS will sanction its own program with heat races, a B-Main and standard 25 lap A-Main event.  


As September rolls around, the 2018 tour will be winding down.  Once again, the tour will make the trek to Montpelier Motor Speedway for a September 8th event.   The season will wrap up with a 2 day showdown in Kentucky at Ponderosa Speedway.  No driver or team will have a "home track advantage" and the BOSS tour drivers will be able to decide the championship on the race track.  The Friday, October 12th event will be the standard BOSS purse but Saturday's finale will pay $2,000 to win and $300 to start.


For the first time since its inception, the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series does not have a title sponsor entering 2018.  However, the standard main event purse will remain unchanged and heat race payouts and bonus awards will remain as well.  The standard BOSS A-Main pays: 1500, 900, 700, 600, 500, 450, 400, 375, 350, 325, 300, 290, 280, 270, 260 and $250 to start.


Heat races will once again pay $100 among the top four finishers (40, 30, 20, 10).  Bonus awards of $50 will also be paid for "Hard Charger", "Hard Luck", "Lukcy Pill Draw", "Perseverance Award" and others!


In addition, the 2018 championship points chase payout also remains the same as the last few years at $3,000 plus contingencies to the champion.  Once again, the top 15 in season points will be rewarded at the banquet and during the season.  The Top 15 in current points will earn $300 to start the main events and $150 B-Main tow money minimums at every event.


The complete season championship points payout will be $3000, 1500, 1200, 1000, 900, 800, 700, 600, 550, 500, 400, 350, 300, 250, 200.  Teams will also see an increase in contingency awards at the year ending awards ceremony.


The BOSS program and philosophy it was founded upon have not changed.  This is still an open tire series with the general rule that any wingless sprint car is allowed to compete.  There is no engine limit and no weight rule.  However, BOSS does take safety into serious consideration.  Teams and drivers are responsible for their own safety equipment.  BOSS will provide the safest race tracks possible along with adequate fire and rescue personnel.  Tracks are required to carry premium insurance on all competitors to get a race date.  But individual driver safety equipment is in the hands of the teams.  BOSS, reserves the right to inspect cars and equipment for safety and also reserves the right to prohibit teams from competing if the cars are deemed unsafe.  


We look forward to seeing everyone very soon and we wish everyone a safe and successful season.  If you need more information on the series, you can phone 740-703-3768 or e-mail sprinter14@hotmail.com

BOSS to Compete in 2018 Kokomo "Sprint Car Smackdown VII"

The 2018 Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series schedule is rapidly coming together and will be released in a matter of days.  However, some news is too good to put off until then.

We are pleased to announce that the BOSS stars and cars will join the USAC National Sprint Car tour at Kokomo Speedway in August for the 7th running of the prestigious "Sprint Car Smackdown".  

The event will once again feature 4 nights of racing.  However, the BOSS show will take place during the Saturday final night on August 25th.  Drivers must choose at sign in whether they want to run the BOSS program OR run for the Smackdown finale.  Many more details will be released in the coming weeks!

Please check out the attached USAC press release which has more details!

 

SPRINT CAR SMACKDOWN TO SPORT NEW LOOK IN 2018 WITH USAC AND BOSS

Kokomo, Indiana………Saturday night of Kokomo Speedway’s “Sprint Car Smackdown VII” will sport a slightly new look in 2018.

The highly-acclaimed event’s finale concludes four-straight nights of USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship action on August 22-23-24-25, but will now feature the addition of the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS), who joins the stage on Saturday at Kokomo.

As has been the case in recent years, “Smackdown” weekend begins with #GYATK Night, a USAC-sanctioned, non-points, special event on Wednesday night, Aug. 22.  The following two nights will be set for two complete full-points-paying USAC National Sprint Car events on Thursday and Friday, Aug. 23-24.  “Smackdown” concludes Saturday night, Aug. 25 with USAC’s $10,000-to-win finale.

BOSS Sprints now join USAC on Saturday night with their own, separate full-points show paying $1500-to-win.  Drivers eligible to compete in the BOSS portion of the event on Saturday are those who have not made a start in any of the previous six Saturday night “Smackdown” features between 2012 and 2017. 

Drivers may only compete in either the USAC program or BOSS program, not both, on Saturday night.  However, drivers may choose to compete Thursday and Friday with USAC and elect to compete again with either USAC or BOSS on Saturday.

“This is going to be an awesome event,” BOSS owner and promoter Aaron Fry exclaimed.  “I’m anxious to see what the fans say.  We are fans of the sport, so to be involved in the Smackdown is exciting.  It will give our teams a chance to race on a big stage at a premier track, and fans coming from all over will get a chance to watch our teams in action.”

“We have seen the Smackdown grow in popularity over time, and last year’s race was one of the best nights we’ve ever seen,” said Kokomo Speedway track owner Reece O’Connor.  “We feel this is a way to make the weekend even better for the fans, and invites a different group of racers to our facility.  Hopefully, we just jack the whole week up another notch.”

The Saturday night “Smackdown” finale has produced four different winners throughout its first six years.  Bryan Clauson won the inaugural running back in 2012.  The USAC National Sprint Cars’ winningest driver, Dave Darland, reeled off a streak of three consecutive wins between 2013 and 2015.  Kevin Thomas, Jr. dominated the 2016 edition while Tyler Courtney was victorious in one of the most spectacular races of the 2017 season.
